Elizabeth Lowell's second book in her trilogy featuring the internationally renowned Donovan family pairs youngest brother Kyle, who featured prominently in the previous book Amber Beach, with the illegitimate daughter of a Chinese trading dynasty. Lianne Blakely accepts that she'll never be openly acknowledged as Johnny Tang's daughter, but her expertise in handling the family's extensive jade collection has earned their respect and leads to her realization that someone has substituted inferior replicas for several priceless pieces. Kyle, meanwhile, has been ordered by big brother Archer to investigate Lianne's possible involvement in the sale of jade treasures that may have been stolen from China. With international relations and leadership within the Tang family at stake, Lianne joins Kyle's effort to find the thief and elude some nasty characters, despite the equally dangerous, explosive passion the couple shares. Hot love scenes, relentless suspense, and appearances by the noisy and affectionate Donovan clan keep the reader entertained. --Ellen Edwards --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Library Journal
When Kyle Donovan, adventurer and youngest son of an international trading family, agrees to make the acquaintance of Lianne Blakely, jade expert and bastard daughter of the powerful Tang family, in order to avert a national incident, he has no idea that she has been commanded by her father to do the same, but for quite different reasons. Fast-paced and frankly sensual, this romance is peopled with intelligent, larger-than-life, yet appealing protagonists and a fascinating, well-plotted story that beautifully conveys the legendary mystique and appeal of jade as well as providing an insightful portrait of the overt and subtle differences between Eastern and Western cultures. A sequel to Amber Beach (Avon, 1997), this continues the Donovan family series, and Lowell's many fans will be waiting. Lowell is a best-selling romance writer of both contemporary and historical romances and lives in the Seattle area. She also writes under her own name, Ann Maxwell, and jointly with her husband, Evan, as A.E. Maxwell.

This book was definitely better than Amber Beach and had more conversation and less of those constant witty rejoinders, that characterized the dialogue in the first novel in the trilogy. It needed more plot (unrelated to jade) and romance development. It was good but not EL great. This series has been touted as a trilogy. I wonder who will be featured in the third? Definitely Archer but what about little sister, Faith? Or even Walker, the pilot? Whatever my complaints, this novel is probably greater than 50-75 percent of those out there. EL knows how to create a characters that have style and confidence in their abilities. I can't wait to read the next one.
