Both of these vintage Jayne Krentz books are dated but interesting to read. When she first came out with these I think that she was one of the very few romance authors doing fantasy/sci-fi/futuristics of that type so she was definitely breaking new ground. The problem is she used the old bodice ripper model to do it and her males are a bit more alpha than the 21st century reader is used to. These two books are more in her Stephanie James style of writing than her Crystal, Quick or Krentz style of writing. So brace yourself. The heroes are of the "Me Tarzan you Jane --and you mine" and the heroines are of the "No. I mean yes. I mean no. I mean yessss .... (insert moan)" type. They are still fun to read -- just realize that it's been a few years since they were written and they're not exactly politically correct.
