Leya Brandon didn't know what--if "anything"--she could believe of all Court Tremayne told her. He'd already lied about his name. And while she thought her heart clearly wasn't at risk, she'd clearly underestimated his all-consum

I'm heartbroken. This is the first JAK novel I didn't like. However, it is one of her early works and had been very rough around the edges. There were familiar moments which had the finesse we're used to seeing in her later works but the male character was just too alpha and rough around the edges. The contest of wills tended to border on near-date rape scenes. The novel also lacked the usual intrigue that is mixed in with the courtship. This novel was pure courtship with a little corporate mani ...more

Court Tremayne is a dangerous man. I don't mean dangerous as in "ooohh chills!". I mean dangerous as in "he should be institutionalized". His possessiveness of Leya spills over into an unhealthy obsessiveness and his physical threats to her made me cold. Couldn't finish the book. I like Jayne Ann Krentz as a writer but I do not like her choice of "hero" for this book.
That was horrible. Possibly the worst book ever written by Ms. Krentz. The hero was so possesive I couldn't read what he was saying, it was just sick. If I ever met a man like that in the real life I'd run fast and far. And the heroine was seemingly similar to all the others, but she was lacking something. And the story was boring.
I found this book while I was looking for something else, and I decided to get it too. It was a quick read (just over 2 hours), but I thought the story was pretty well written. I'm not sure I'dve fallen in love with Court - he was kind of a jerk - but I did like Leya.
The hero was nuts but strangely he made me laugh quite a lot and that had him growing on me , that man just doesn't know when to quit , I laughed so hard at him and at Leya , the battle of wills between them was hilarious and brutal. Court carrying Leya like a sack of potatoes when she wouldn't leave with him had me in laughing fits ...I'm sure if it wasn't so damn funny I would have gotten angry at him but the way he does things so seriously when they're just really crazy was hilarious. Now t ...more
You can tell this is some of Krentz's early works. It lacks many of the qualities I like in her later works. The male is too alpha and I miss her use of the paranormal.
More like stormy rape and pillage.
Dated Harlequin romance from the 80s
Very early Jayne Ann Krentz (1982), this one is repetitive and does not flow well. Added to that, my copy has a lot of typos, so it does not read smoothly on that level either. Nevertheless, any Jayne Ann Krentz is better than none.

I really didn't like this book. The main characters seemed to be locked in an abusive relationship. Definitely not worth a re-read!!! Glad I borrowed it rather than waste any money on buying it.

It was nice to see a book in which the guy and girl both aren't playing games (even if they misunderstand each other's intentions).
This was one of her older books so there's still that 70's battle of the sexes vibe. It's still a good read.
Annette Meier
Funny and amusing bantering between two very strong personalities! Delightful
Judy Goodnight
An early work that is stuck in the early 80's vibe

Not good, again bad relationship via manipulation
