With more bestsellers in the last two years under her various pseudonyms than Michael Crichton
and John Grisham
combined, there's no denying that Jayne Ann Krentz is one of the reigning queens of romance. In Deep Waters

Charity Truitt can't escape the ever-escalating panic attacks that have plagued her over the last four months. Desperate to escape a loveless engagement and an impending nervous breakdown, Charity flees to Whispering Waters Cove, a tiny seaside community. There Charity meets Elias Winters, a major player in the Pacific Rim trade, a man with a past too painful to forget. When the sleepy town is rocked by a killer on the loose, the two unite to catch the murderer. It's the undeniable connection between the two that runs deep in this passionate tale of intrigue.
