Publisher's Summary

Jonas Quarrel was lean, sexy, and equally capable of quoting Renaissance poetry or wielding a dagger. Verity Ames knew Jonas was the perfect partner for an affair - and that he was not the marrying kind. Before long he would be looking for new excitement, leaving Verity behind to run her gourmet restaurant in a California resort, hold on to misty colored memories, and wonder what she was going to do if she were pregnant with his child. Sure enough, her adventuring lover was soon off to an Italian villa rebuilt on a Pacific Northwest island. Jonas went to hunt for missing Renaissance jewels. Verity went along to snare a husband. A big, soft, four-poster bed might be the ideal place to try out her lures! But in this ancient mansion of hidden passageways and mysterious perils, there were some deadly traps for those blinded by love...unless Verity could help Jonas discover the most precious treasure a woman and man can find.

Excellent but missing something

I started reading Gifts of Fire and quicky came to enjoy the characters. However, I felt like I was missing something. That this was the second part of their story. I actually thought maybe they were supporting characters in another of Krentz's books. I researched the issue and realized this was actually their second book. They were the lead characters in Gift of Gold. However, this book is not available in Audible's library. Really feel cheated. Hope to find it at a regular bookstore so I will know the whole story.

This story could stand alone if it had to but I really feel it would be a better story of you read Gift of Gold first.

Disappointed

Something was missing in this book or didn't seem quite right. The story line is boring and drawn out. I was also disappointed in the narrator. It seemed as if the narrator was just reading the story ... there was no life to it.
