oh, hello muscular gentleman on the cover.

Yeah this one right here goes out to all the baby's mamas, mamas... mamas, mamas, baby mamas, mamas. Happy Mother's Day lady friends. Now, for your viewing pleasure...

Copper Beach is the start of Jayne Ann Krentz’s new paranormal A Dark Legacy series. Our main character Abby Radwell is a rare-book specialist with psychic powers that allows her to decode old “magical” books. When she begins to receive blackmail threats, she turns to Sam Coppersmith who comes from a family that has a long history of paranormal work and research, to help her find the culprit. I hate referring to male characters as the “hero” of novels, making my feminist mother proud. But Sam’s instant attraction to Abby is more Cary Grant than Tarzan, and the chemistry is hot. While he helps protect her, she uses her talents to help him find a book that his family has been searching for, for decades. It’s more of a partnership than a damsel in distress. I am extremely interested in watching these characters progress, especially Newton, Abby’s dog. He was my favorite. When you can write a good pet character, you’ve got my vote.
