"New York" Times bestselling author JAYNE ANN KRENTZ, writing as Stephanie James, delivers sizzling and compelling characters in a classic romance

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

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.

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

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.
This was not a good story. The hero, Court, is physically and sexually abusive throughout the first 2/3 of it, and there's no actual chemistry between him and the heroine, Leya. All they do is bicker the whole time before magically "admitting" that they love each other in the last few pages. And the thing that really appalled me is the behavior of Leya's brother, Keith. He not only encourages Court to abuse his sister, he actually helps facilitate it!! Disgusting!

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.

There is absolutely nothing in this world that is better than a JAK romance. It doesn't matter which name she is writing under her books satisfy everything a romance is supposed to be.

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

This book was awful! I did not even finish reading it since I got so upset with the male lead, Court, breaking into Leya's home. She didn't call the cops or anything else. She just stood there shocked that he had done it. Plus, every time he wanted to bring her closer to him, he wrapped her braid around his hand and tugged. She complained every time but kept doing it to her.
I stopped reading this book before Court became even more abusive because that is the path that this book was headed on.

Very poor writing, plot and everything else. Too much of 50 shades kind of behavior from the guy--really disturbing. And it didn't make sense in places nor was there much cohesion when it did make sense. Uneven and not recommended.
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.

Shelves: romance
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.
Rexanna Ipock-Brown
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.

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).
Judy Goodnight
An early work that is stuck in the early 80's vibe
Dated Harlequin romance from the 80s

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.

Wow...this book was so uninteresting, I even tried going into chapter 2, but no can do. I also couldn't stand that as they conversed, almost every sentence ended with an exclamation!
