For a six year period Krentz would submit stories, yet would constantly face rejection.

Hardcover Paperback Kindle. American author Jayne Ann Krentz is well known for her romance novels, having become a best-selling author under the ‘New York Times’, a list which she’s made on multiple occasion. Also going under the name ‘Amanda Quick’, she pens historical-romance as well. Her maiden name of ‘Castle’ is used for her more paranormal and futuristic romance-suspense novels. Early and Personal Life. For a six year period Krentz would submit stories, yet would constantly face rejection. This was during her time working at Duke University as she’d begun to mix both elements of romance and the paranormal together.

It's love at first sight for art dealer Mattie Sharp when she meets adventurer Hugh Abbott. But when Hugh disappears back to his exotic Pacific island home, Mattie swears she will never see him again. But meet again they do - and Mattie finds her surival depends on the man she'd love to hate.

Comments:

Delirium
It was a chore to get through this book. I almost quit a few times. I usually love Jayne's books, but not this one. There was no chemistry between Mattie and Hugh. He was obnoxious and she was a stress filled whiner. The plot finally quickened 3/4 of the way in so I read to the end, but definitely not worth the time to read it.

I used to love this book. I read it so often in the nineties I got tired of it and gave it away - and looked forward to having it back. SPOILER ALERT. The fact that I loved this book just shows how dysfunctional I used to be. The "hero" is a condescending arrogant idiot But the WORST is the 'seduction' scene where he's with her when she's passed out drunk.. Shades of Brock Turner. I suppose I'll give it a second star because I'll still skim through and finish it. But I'm glad times have changed from when that was somehow supposed to be sexy. Ugh.

Babe, I just can't finish this book! I never leave books unfinished,but for this "book", I'll make an exception, Babe! I can't believe JAK wrote this, as it's so different from her later works. Poorly fleshed characters, little humour, a Neanderthal hero, whose every second word is "babe" , etc. I wish that Amazon would give the true publishing date and not the Kindle date, so buyers would know how old and dated the book is. Let's just say that it's a very early book. Bring back Harmony or the Arcane Society. Loved them all.

Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my favorite authors. I've read almost everything she has written, even her early novels (+ Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle). Silver Linings was published originally in 1971 and I hadn't read it before. I skimmed through the 3rd chapter and stopped. This novel simply isn't worth reading. Her female characters are usually portrayed as intelligent and capable of handling themselves in any situation. Mattie Sharpe is a dimwit. She is a caricature of a "dumb blonde" without the blonde hair. Oh well.
Andronrad
Very disappointed in this ridiculous book. Found out after the fact that it was originally written in the 80’s which accounts for the absurdity. I really hate when an old book is packaged as new.
Vushura
Love Krentz, but this wasn't one of her better ones. Took a while to warm up to the main characters. Seemed like a lot could have been resolved if they'd just been more open and honest (especially the H in the beginning), but I guess then we wouldn't have had a story. There is enough thriller with the mystery of a murder and the H's past coming back to haunt that keeps you interested.
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
I have read most, if not all of JAK's books in all her time periods. I had to check the published date because reading this book took me back 30 years. Reading the book was like walking up a steep hill in deep sand. I had to slog through it and can't tell you how many times I was tempted to just walk away. Hugh was the worst kind of Neanderthal. Knows what's best for the "Little woman", and if I had to rad one more time how "stressed" Mattie was I would have thrown the book out the window. Save yourself time and frustration and start reading about chapter 16. It won't take long to catch up. Hugh finally realizes what a knuckle dragger he's being, but he only tells Mattie what he feels like is necessary for her to know. Her egocentric, screaming sister has slowed down by then, and actually thinks about someone else for a change. The ending isn't bad, but if this is what her newest books are going to be like, save your money.
Geez, I'm only a few pages in and i already do NOT like this whiny woman.

Of course he isn't much better, so what the heck happened here Jayne? Your characters are usually likable even in the books where the story line is weak.
