Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jayne Ann Krentz continues to produce powerhouse plots in her new novel Joy. Virginia had no plans to ever marry again. She seriously doubted that she would even get involved with another man after her disasterous marriage. Ryerson's first marriage didn't work out so well, and his most recent affair, with Virginia's younger sister, sizzled before the flame was even ignited. So when Virginia and Ryerson decide to attempt a relationship, things get pretty wacky. Virginia and Ryerson agree that they have all the time in the world, and so decide to take things slowly. After the first month though, Ryerson is wondering if he won't spontaneously combust before things get exciting. To further their raltionship, Ryerson books a little trip for them, to a nice tropical island. Not only does their relationship get further development, but Ryerson wins a gorgeous and old emerald braclet in a lucky game of cards. Unfortunately, the former owner of the braclet wasn't exactly the most truthful fellow, leaving Ryerson and Virginia in a dangerous little adventure. Ms. Krentz blends a wonderful mix of passion, adventure and humour to create an exotic tale of two people learning to trust love again. By the end, we all wish that we had Virgiunia's luck in men!

Virginia Elizabeth Middlebrook's first marriage had been a short taste of hell, making her vow to never marry again. A.C. Ryerson had married too young and swore off love. When A.C. and Virginia first met, they knew thay could become friends. Soon, they overcame Virginia's fears and become lovers. Marriage, however, is another story entirely. Then A.C. wins a stunning emerald and diamond bracelet in a poker game, unleashing a series of suspicious accidents.
Another delightful tale by JAK. A.C. and Virginia are not as driven as some of Krentz's usual heroes and heroines. They are comfortable with each other from the first, only shying from committment. The legend behind the bracelet is intriguing. Wonder if there are other books about it?

Part of the montclair jewel trilogy, this book is an example of the greatest romance author of all time. A.C and Viginia are 'friends', and as such they travel abroad. But things do not go as plan when they fall in love and then A.C wins a mysterious bracelet in a game of poker. Unmissable!! One of Krentz's greatest stories yet!!

Virginia Middlebrook and A.C. Ryerson had both been burned in painful marriage.Neither had any desire to relive the past-they'd take things slow.
A Caribbean trip seemed like the perfect way to test the waters of a new relationship...until A.C. wins a breathtaking emerald bracelet with a mysterious past. Suddenly their days-and nights-become a become a reckless roller coaster of adventure, desire...and deadly peril. Not the best of JAK's books but still an excellent book!
