Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Amanda Quick is one of the pseudonyms of Jayne Ann Krentz, one of the bestselling romance writers in the world. Many of Krentz’s books have a supernatural element but this one is simply a good historical crime romance romp. Amity Doncaster rescued Benedict Stanbridge in the Caribbean and nursed him back to health on the journey home but gossip about their innocent relationship has got her into trouble, not least because a dangerous serial killer has her on his hit list. Of course Amity and Benedict must join forces to defeat him and though fans may be a little disappointed at some repetitive plot devices it’s still a fun romp.

If you like Amanda Quick you might also like to read books by Mary Stewart, Caroline Harvey and Jayne Ann Krentz.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

One does not expect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight. Yet Amity Doncaster barely escapes with her life after meeting a man in a black silk mask who whispers the most vile taunts and threats into her ear. Her quick thinking, and her secret weapon, save her - for now. But the monster known in the press as the Bridegroom has left a trail of female victims in his wake, and will soon be on his feet again. He is unwholesomely obsessed by Amity's scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge - and Benedict refuses to let this resourceful, daring woman suffer for her romantic link to him-as tenuous as it may be. For a man and woman so skilled at disappearing, so at home in the exotic reaches of the globe, escape is always an option. But each intends to end the Bridegroom's reign of terror in the heart of the city they love, which means they must also face feelings neither of them can run away from...
