Emelina Stratton was desperate to save her brother's life. Desperate enough to ask mafia-chieftain-in-hiding Julian Colter for help. The man, shrouded in mystery and with lethal good looks, said yes. For a price, of course. Emmy would have The Devil To Pay. Especially since she was what Julian demanded in return.Intellectual Sophia Bennett knew what kind of man she wanted:...more

It's hard to reconcile the Jayne Ann Krentz I "know" today with her mid-80's work.
Because these two stories don't read like a JAK work at all.

The Devil to Pay

Rather good, though it shows the era it was created in. I slightly disliked the heroine (with her wild imagination and blind belief in rumors), and the hero's possessiveness (though I love my Alpha males) made me roll my eyes a few times. Too over the top if you ask me.

The suspense part was rather bland and hole-y, and the romance was a bi...more
Both books from the '80s, typical overbearing males with "strong" women who are impressed by the males because they're SOOOO powerful

Devil to Pay-Emelina Stratton is trying to help her brother who is being blackmailed. To that end, she enlists (or is forced to take the help of) Julian Colter and his Doberman. He's rumored to be a mob boss but she takes his hielp anyway.

Wizard-Really weird story about a woman, Sophia, whose parents are geniuses and because of that she wants to marry a cowboy? Ins...more
I really enjoyed this book. Her characters are always different than expected. I enjoyed all of her 80's books and took them for the era they were in and what was selling.
Ok this book had 2 stories in it so i'll start with #1

The Devil To Pay

I loved this story.It had danger in and a man in love..the white lies
Wonderful plot:)
All around good story this one i gave a 4

Story 2

This one was good as well
But i didnt like it as well.Maybe it was the way of it..
The man was just not as good as the one in the frist story..
I was good but just on a dinffernt scal then the 1st one:)
So this one im givein a 3 too..

Happy reading
A double reprint, both from the 80s - I think they were originally printed under the Stephanie James pen name. They have the usual 80s attitude - a strong man who thinks 'feisty' = 'cute' and a woman who thinks she can handle herself until she needs to be rescued by the man...

For those old enough to remember, consider it a trip down memory lane.

This was the first romance-ish novel I have ever read, and I was completely satisfied with it. Both of the stories in it, were well written and fantastic. Highly recommend it!
A book with lots of stereotyping.
