Publisher's Summary

Stunning, stubborn, and independent, Philadelphia Fox lost her best friend because of the fabulously rich and powerful Lightfoot family of Washington state. Now she's got her friend's controlling shares in Lightfoot Industries - an inheritance that brings Nick, the family's prodigal and supremely attractive son, knocking at her door.

An unexpected and irrepressible spark between them blazes into extraordinary passion, and Phila - historically unlucky in love - finds the deepest satisfaction she has ever known. But behind Nick's gray eyes lurks a disturbing enigma...and Phila must make the choice of her life. Trusting Nick may come with quite a price - but giving in to his strong, sensual seduction is a golden chance that may never come again.

    "Great Book!"

    Very nicely fleshed-out story with great characters and just enough romance. There were even a couple of twists I wasn't expecting. I was very pleasantly surprised and will look for more from this author.

    "Better Than Reading It Myself"

    I enjoy listening to audio books that were favorite reads for me in the past but rarely does the narration make the book even better for me. But in this case it was! The Golden Chance is one of my favorite Jayne Ann Krentz books and the wonderful narration with this audio version made it better than ever!

    "EXCELLENT!!"



    I highly recommend this audio book which is one of Jayne Ann Krentz' best. The book has a strong plot, well-developed characters, and a nice mixture of romance and mystery. I disagree with previous criticisms of the narration. Patrick Lawlor and Franette Liebow provided excellent narration that clearly distinguished the voices of each characters. I didn't want it to end, but alas it had to.

    "Really enjoyed"

    Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my favorite authors and this book was pretty good. I really enjoyed having a male and female narrator they were great. Credit worthy.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "Throughly Enjoyable"

    I really enjoyed Phila Fox, and how she kept everyone in the Lightfoot clan on edge with what she was going to do with her shares of the companies stock. The story caught my interest from the beginning and kept it through out. I feel this was an involved family tale of intrigue and lies told under the guise of keeping up family appearances. It did not disappoint. I liked it.

    The narrators were ok, I could have done without two of them, especially the female.

    "One of Jayne's better stories."

    I enjoyed this book because the main female character never let anyone get her down. She was upbeat and knew what she wanted from the start. Jayne Ann Krentz is either a hit or miss kinda of author and lately a miss, so it was refreshing to have one I enjoyed.

    "Very disappointing narration"

    4 stars for the book and 1 for narration. I wish there was a way to put these ratings in separately, could be very helpful when choosing a book.

    "Like the book, Narrators Need help"

    As all of Jayne Ann Krentz's books, this one is entertaining if a little predictable. However, the voices especially those for the older female characters are annoying. The male voice puts an exclamation on everything he says, which makes listening again annoying. I have listening to other books read by this male narrator and he reads all books the same. Needs to learn to put emphasis only when appropriate.

    "Five Stars Plus for this novel and performance"
    What did you love best about The Golden Chance?

    The story is good and the two narrators are excellent as they read by themselves and interact with each other.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Golden Chance?

    Hard to pick just one memorable moment as the performance throughout was excellent.


    What about Patrick G. Lawlor and Franette Liebow ’s performance did you like?

    They worked well delivering the dialogue with each other. They also did well narrating the other male and female voices.. Patrick G. Lawlor is the best male narrator I have ever listened to...he is really good. Franette is excellent as well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I feel this book is quite good throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Jayne Ann Krentz books at all, this audio version is a winner.
