I wish Ms. Krentz had seen fit to edit this book to keep up with today's mores. Court, the hero, is constantly threatening to harm Leya, to beat her, etc. He breaks into her house while she is in the shower. He carries her out of a party after telling her just how much (or how little) she is allowed to drink. By today's standards, he is an abuser. And she loves him. It would take only a few adjustments to make him into a decent hero, but as it stands now, I'd be afraid of him, and wouldn't want my daughter to think this behavior is acceptable. That, and his repeatedly calling the strong-willed and self-sufficient Leya a shrew, or "little Leya" made me dislike him intensely. Name calling and demeaning. Yes, what a package he is.

Why the heck doesn't the synopsis state that these are NOT new stories?? Should we be miffed at Amazon, or the publisher, or the author? Anyway...these two stories were originally published in 1982 by Silhouette Romance under the pen name Jayne Castle. The books were good back then, but today they feel dated. The men are chauvinistic and even abusive, but the women are portrayed as strong (of course, this is Krentz). In the context of 3 decades ago, I enjoyed the books. I have the original copies, bought at a used book store years ago.

First off, I am a great, great fan of all the recent years of Jayne Ann Krentz, and of what she wrote under her pseudonyms Jayne Castle and Amanda Quick. She also, way back, used another pseudonym, namely Stephanie James. But those old books, the ones which Ms. Krentz had written back at the beginning of her published career, are very different in both tone and in the quality of the writing from the more recent twenty years' work. They're not only unpolished, they are written as praise of abusive men and sick relationships. The male leads are domineering, and insult the female lead, and it's all supposed to be okay because he "loves" her. I'm sorry to say so but don't let your teen daughters read those early books, several of which are being re-released now and for the past few years. They're the exact attitudes that need to be permanently ended - that a male has the right to refuse to take no for an answer. In some of them, he breaks into her locked-up house while she's showering. He grabs her arm, and even though she fights to get free of him, he hauls her through the astonished partygoers and out into the night. That ain't romance, folks! It's abuse. And it teaches girls and young women that it's a sign of his devotion, his male passion, for him to overrule what she wants and to trick and betray her. Stick to the modern books, where the Krentz, Quick and Castle books are some of the very best ones out there of all of the romance authors in writing women as being intelligent, self-reliant, and yet ready to love -- to pair up men and women as equals, not in some primitive Tarzan-Jane bizarre control-freak distortion.

This is a reprint of two novels originally published in the early 80s. Two people meet, are very sexually attracted to each other, fight and argue. The woman resists, the man insists that she belongs with and to him. Although the stories are old, they're fun to read - pure romance stories as they used to be.

This is two stories put together in one book; two stories in one book is not something I enjoy all that much. Note that these stories are from her really early days of writing, they are republished from 1982. I really do not recommend them, they are not some of her better work. Her better work are the things she publishes currently. In my opinion, these stories should not have been republished.

Her writing as Jayne Castle is good; he futuristic series is one I love. I just don't these.

Neither one of these stories is very good. Stormy Challenge features a physically and sexually abusive hero while Reckless Passion is just pointless and uninspiring. Don't bother.

I've written much longer reviews of these two stories and posted them under their individual book pages. Here I'll just give a brief summary.

Stormy Challenge:
Court Tremayne travels to a seaside Oregon Inn deliberately to find and seduce the heroine, Leya. She's the co-owner of a company with her brother, Keith, and is standing in the way of a contract between the two men. Before even meeting Leya, Court decides that the only way to "deal with a woman like her" is to get her into bed where his amazing sexual prowess will tame her. So, with Leya's sleazy brother's blessing, Court tracks her down to enact this seduction plan, making sure to keep his true identity a secret. And it more or less works because Leya is attracted to Court and lets him talk her into signing the contract.

Shortly after she does this, though, her sleazy brother reveals who Court really is and Leya is outraged by Court's deception (though oddly not her brother's). Even though he got what he originally came for, Court has decided that Leya belongs to him and proceeds to sexually assault her on numerous occasions. He doesn't full-on rape her, but he uses his superior strength to pin her down and force kisses and caresses on her while she fights back, even punching him in the ribs at one stage. He also breaks into her house while she's in the shower and assaults her again before taking her to a party where he tries to dictate how much alcohol she's allowed to drink and ends the night by throwing the protesting Leya over his shoulder and hauling her out to the car like a caveman.
