Jonas went to hunt for missing Renaissance jewels. Verity went along to snare a husband. A big, soft, four-poster bed might be the ideal place to try out her lures! But in this ancient mansion of hidden passageways and mysterious perils, there were some deadly traps for those blinded by love...unless Verity could help Jonas discover the most precious treasure a woman and man can find.

I started reading Gifts of Fire and quicky came to enjoy the characters. However, I felt like I was missing something. That this was the second part of their story. I actually thought maybe they were supporting characters in another of Krentz's books. I researched the issue and realized this was actually their second book. They were the lead characters in Gift of Gold. However, this book is not available in Audible's library. Really feel cheated. Hope to find it at a regular bookstore so I will know the whole story.
This story could stand alone if it had to but I really feel it would be a better story of you read Gift of Gold first.
Something was missing in this book or didn't seem quite right. The story line is boring and drawn out. I was also disappointed in the narrator. It seemed as if the narrator was just reading the story ... there was no life to it.
I enjoyed this book. I like books with paranormal points. But I wish you would add the first of. The series "Gift of Gold". Where Jonas meets hrs little tyrant. I feel like I missed a lot by missing their first meeting
I only made it to the 3rd chapter and the narrator was getting on my nerves so I stopped the story and will not return to it at all.
Would not give it even 1 star but could not due to the way the system works.
Yes. I have been happy with her other books.
I really dislike the hero in this story. If his character were a real person his actions and reactions would be red flags for a possible abusive and obsessively controlling person. For example, as soon as the heroine disagrees with him he flies into a rage. He also frequently talks about her as a possession.
I usually love paranormal books and I enjoy Jayne Anne Krentz as well as her books under Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick. This one, however, has got to be her worst. The hero is a bit of a blowhard chauvinist and is really unappealing. It's a fun plot, but I found the heroine annoying and the hero a jerk, so I just can't recommend it. I suggest trying one of her Arcane Society books instead.
The narration was somewhat flat compared to the Ghost hunter series. The story was ok but I felt a little lost like the story had been rewritten to be shorter or it was an edited version and they cut out some important info. The story was fine but not really up to this authors normal.
