Originally published in 1983, this is the first Krentz I ever read. It is dated, with some very cheesy dialogue, and silly relationship conflicts (I forgot the h was so down on all men because her dad abandoned her family when she was young). Still, if you like Krentz and enjoy old school, politically ancient romances, this still a fast, fun read.

You can tell this is one of the author's earlier works. The characters don't seem to be fully developed, and make odd decisions. The plot-line is never completely explained either. However, the romance factor is great, as it almost always is in her books. Worth reading, but I'd pick one of her newer books first if you've never read anything by her.

(late review) I like Jayne Ann Krentz because she knows how to build up the characters right from the start. I loved how to could envision the bar, the owner, the sort of skittish tourist. She described everything so that you wanted to read more and the more you read the more you were intrigued. Another grade A plus read.

Even after all these years, I still have fond memories of this story. For some reason, Ms. Krentz just did it for me. Her books aren't erotic, they are sweet and romantic. This one, the man is frustrating as always. I want to beat him. The female character is sassy. Enjoyable.

A classic Stephanie James book , Jase is controlling , arrogant and demanding. Amy's all no no no yes yes yes with big fat TSTL moments and still it was fun to read , I'm starting to think I have an inner 80's woman hiding somewhere

Published in 1983, this book is surprisingly good for such an early Jayne Ann Krentz. It has the plot, dialogue, and character description of her later books, but perhaps not the humor and complexity. Definitely a good read, however.

Have to admit, the relationship between the two characters was ridiculously fast moving and I only read half the book cause I just couldn't invest in the romance or the plot, which even at halfway I still didn't know where it was going.

É um livro leve, para se ler numa tarde de verão.
Lê-se bem, tem uma escrita fluída.
Uma história vulgar, mas com um bom final. E boas personagens. Podiam ter sido melhor exploradas, no entanto.

Again Old School fun times. Heroine thrives on TSTL moments. Guy is overbearing protective and determined. Enjoyed reading it :).
Sharon Sherman
A good read as always from Krentz
