I LOVE any book that JAK writes, doesn't matter what name she writes under. She cannot write a bad book.
I think it all depends on my mood, sometimes there is nothing better then a classic JAK book, and she is one of the few authors who can get me to read a historical. :D
Then of course there are her Jayne Castles, I have both the original Jayne Castles that she wrote for Candlelight eons ago and of course her paranormal series.
Hmmm, favorite persona? that is a hard one. I guess if I was forced it would be her JAK but only under extreme duress. otherwise they are all good :D

I love reading them all. I do not think I can just pick one. She is such a great author that I love reading all her books.

I love Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick!! I haven't read her writing by Jayne Castle. She is one of the authors that I always buy her books no matter what. I am like OOOOOOOO have to have it!

I have not read anything under her JAK or Jayne Cstle pseudonym's but have enjoyed her under Amanda Quick so it is my logical favorite. :-)

Jane said...

I like her JAK books the most because romantic suspense is my favorite genre. I also enjoy her Amanda Quick books, but I've never read her Jayne Castle books.

I have only read her Amanda Quick books and I really enjoy them.

My memory is hazy with regards to books written under Jayne Castle. I know I've read some written under Jayne Ann Krentz, but mostly I read her books written as Amanda Quick.

Paula said...

I first got to know her writing as Amanda Quick, and while I've read her books published under other names, I still prefer her AQ titles.

I haven't read anything by Jayne Castle. I have read the other two and enjoyed both.

I started with her romances as JAK... Gambler's Woman, The Cowboy,Joy, the Pirate, Dream's 1&2,Eclipse Bay series....so they're my favorites. Later, I tried her Amanda Quick historicals. Finally, I read her futuristic Jayne Castle's Orchid,Zinnia & Amarillis.

They're all great! I agree that it depends on your mood.

I've never read any of her books but I think I'd like them all!

I enjoy her Amanda Quick books most

Pam P said...

I can't pick one, like her books no matter what name she writes under. I will say I read less contemporaries than historicals and futuristics, but some of my alltime favorite contemps are her older Krentz titles - Trust Me, Absolutely, Positively, Perfect Partners, and so many others. Ravished is one my favorite Quick titles, and Shield's Lady originally written as Amanda Glass I believe.

It all depends on my mood. Sometimes I really want a historical book, or an old school romance and then I look for an Amanda Quick or Jayne Ann Krentz. Usually I'm a sucker for any paranormal book, so it's Jayne Castle.

I have read her in all her guises but my favourite is Jayne Castle and her dust bunnies :D

My favs would have to be the Jayne Ann Krentz, only because I haven't read her other ones. I've got some in my TBR pile, just not enough time to get to them.

Lately, I'm feeling very Castle. But with winter coming, I will probably curl up with a cup of cocoa for a Quick-ie.

I am going with Jayne Castle because they're more paranormal than the others and I'm all about paranormal.

My favorite persona is Jayne Castle, because I love how she mixes futuristic, with science fiction, paranormal powers, and romance. However, I've also enjoyed the books she's written as Amanda Quick and Jayne Ann Krentz. For me the ones that I like the most are the ones with paranormal elements. So really if the book has that, I buy it regardless of which name she happens to be writing under for the book.

This is the first time that I heard; Jayne Ann Krentz, Jayne Castle, and Amanda Quick are all the same person. I am a person that just loves all knids of books.

I got into Jayne Ann Krentz books in about 1991. She was one of the three books that got me to start writing when I was at my worst time. I just lost my grandfather, which was the only person I could tell anything to.

I remember picking up a Harlequin Intrigue out of a stack of books at a garage sale and the title got me. It was called, "The Waiting Game."

I went home and got no slepp that night, because I could not put the book down. I don't have that book or the others, but I started writing my own stories so I could be just like her and the other authors.

Later on, I forgot about those first books and my husband's grandmother had a room full of different books. I could go in that room and borrow two books a week and then it turned into two a day. She had everyone, but the most books from Jayne Ann Krentz was the Amanda Quick ones. She had anad I heard from "Seduction" thru "Late for a Wedding", that is every book published 1990-2003. Don't get me wrong, she did have some under Jayne Ann Krentz, but it was not many, like four of them and none from Jayne Castle.

If I had to choosen, it would be hard, because it would be between Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick, but that is all that I have read of her books. I have not had the pleasure to read one of her books under Jayne Castle to see if she changes the way she writes under that name.

That's just me.
