Book Description

Jan. 11 2002 Eclipse Bay (Book 2)
From New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz—the second novel in a dramatic trilogy set in breathtaking Eclipse Bay, a town filled with rivalries as fierce and compelling as the rugged Oregon coast….

Nothing was ever simple between a Madison and a Harte. The feud that had divided their families still simmered. Now, only months after their siblings’ wedding, Lilian Harte and Gabe Madison are at each other’s throats.

Successful CEO Gabe had insisted on becoming a client of Lilian’s matchmaking service. And after five disastrous dates, Lilian is at her wit’s end. If she hadn’t already decided to close her business and move home to Eclipse Bay, Gabe would have been the final straw. But when she finds Gabe at her door demanding she fulfill their business contract, the sparks between them suddenly turn personal. Once again, Eclipse Bay will witness a showdown—between a relentless Madison and an irresistible Harte…

Product Description

From Amazon

Setting: Eclipse Bay, Oregon, present day

Sensuality rating: 5

New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz returns readers to this sleepy coastal town in her eagerly anticipated sequel to Eclipse Bay. The Harte-Madison feud hasn't been totally laid to rest yet, not when matchmaker Lillian Harte takes on successful CEO Gabe Madison as a client. Gabe's arranged blind dates have all ended disastrously, but he insists that Lillian make good on his contract for a sixth and final rendezvous, even if she has to go herself. But anytime a Madison and a Harte get near each other, the chemistry is explosive. Add in quirky alien conspiracy theorists and a soupçon of sexual deviance in the form of dominance and bondage--not to mention tongue-in-cheek humor and captivating sensuality--and you've got another unforgettable read from perennial favorite Krentz. --Alison Trinkle

From Publishers Weekly

The second installment of Krentz's Harte-Madison trilogy (following Eclipse Bay) attempts to close the rift that formed several generations ago between the prosperous Hartes and the reckless Madisons. Lillian Harte plans to give up her computer matchmaking business to devote her life to painting, but she has one final client to "fire" steely Gabe Madison. Gabe has already broken with his heritage by building a billion-dollar venture-capital company, and now he wants a wife, one who is financially independent, good-looking and definitely not an "arty" type. When Gabe learns that Lillian is closing her business, he insists that she fulfill her contractual obligation to him. He even follows her home to Eclipse Bay, Ore., supposedly to collect on their broken agreement. While they smolder in the usual Harte-Madison fashion, a sex therapist who is into bikini panties and submission tries to steal Lillian's database of high-end clients. This silly subplot detracts from the romance, and it's a shame that Krentz (aka Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle), who is such a master of sexual tension and intelligent banter, has weighed this romantic puff pastry down with such a leaden attempt at mystery. (May 1)Forecast: Although the Romantic Times has claimed that romantic suspense novels are "out" and romantic comedies are "in," Krentz's romantic suspense novels have been, and still are, selling exceedingly well. This frivolous but entertaining romp should be no exception.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is the 0 star rating when you need it..... March 6 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is to anyone who has read this author before and has enjoyed her style of writing. You will probably enjoy this one as well. I however, have decided never to read anything she writes again. The author's style of writing is too juvenile for my taste.
You can read the Editorial Reviews for the book description. The main character Lillian has a knack for jumping to the wrong conclusion and her lack of common sense was laughable. Another character by the name of Arizona Snow was obsessed with frozen aliens, which was both pointless and too stupid for any real humor. Towards the end of the book when common sense finally catches up with Lillian {after a long and exhausting chase throughout the book} and she realizes who the person is that's behind the break-in and vandalism of her beachfront home. She goes in search of the proof she needs and to confront the person. This was not a confrontation at all; it was more like a very civil disagreement between two really good friends. A small spat if you will. The ending was very disappointing and it was a real effort on my part to finish the book.
For those that haven't read anything by Jayne Ann Krentz and you come across this review before you have a chance to read one of her books... TRUST ME AND SKIP THIS AUTHOR. Try Karen Robards, Judith NcNaught, Linda Howard and or Nora Roberts. You will not be disappointed in either of these authors I promise.

I'm a very big fan of Jayne Ann Krentz (et al) novels and have read most of the books in her various series. This is another good one.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK! Jan. 30 2004
By Tgirl
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have never laughed so hard in my life. At one point I actually had tears rolling... some of the stuff with AZ killed me but the wholehearted tears came from the camera shot... I will not ruin it for those who have not read but the whole red undies thing was hysterical. The sex was a bit weak... a lot of assumptions, which is fine but I think more then one sceen would have made the "clicking" of the characters a bit stronger. All in all though a good book I throughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading Summer at Eclipse Bay next! I would recommend this book agian

4.0 out of 5 stars The second in the series ... May 20 2003
Format:Audio Cassette
I think I liked this one as much as I did the first stoyr. This is the story of Gabe and Lillian. As usual a Harte and a Madison don't usually mix well. But, in this case Lillian has been hired by Gabe due to her dating service. But, after more than the guaranteed dates and reupping Gabe still has not found his match. He has one data left and he is going to insist Lillian fufill her contract, much to her dismay as she has decided to close her business. They both wind up back in Eclipse Bay and the showdown starts. There are alot of the characters you have come to enjoy in this one such as Virgil and AZ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Story 3; audio reader 1 June 24 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
I am having bad luck with audio books; in particular romance mysteries. The women just cant do a man's voice convincingly enough for me. This time she made Lillian sound like such a priss. Finally, got the book from the library, forgot the audio and had a great time with it. The first chapter is a howl. Gabe & Lillian are a tough couple to rate, so I just went along with the book. The premise was weak but, it's summer and I have decided to just read and enjoy. Not much time is invested and it is a nice addition to the trilogy. I would recommend the 'Naked in Death" unabridged audio; now there's a woman who can do all voices and make it work!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Her Best May 8 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge JAK fan, but this one disappointed me. I never felt that the characters developed enough. I'm hoping the new volume in the trilogy will be better. I miss the characters in her earlier books.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked Lillian and Gabe well enough, but their romance seemed to lack the edge and fire that Hannah's and Rafe's had. I also wish JAK would stop with the "Madison are this...Hartes are that..." It really got on my nerves. We know that these two families have their trademark personalities, but I felt that the author was trying to beat it into our heads (there was enough of that in Eclipse Bay)! I used to read a lot of JAK, but the last several books have not been as entertaining. I hope the final book in this trilogy has more spunk and LESS FAMILY COMPARISONS.
