Johanna Lindsey is -always- a good read. :) Here's a fairly new one, in hardback. i loved it, and so will anyone who likes a good solid romance, that is well-researched for data regarding the plot surroundings and themes. :)
loved this book its what you expect from a historical romance the drama, love, miscommunication and good characters. Lady Rowena was between a rock and a hard place and had to do what she did because of her evil stepbrother and even though what she had to do to Lord Warrick wasn't her idea she had to do what she had to do. Lord Warrick was a bit more aggressive towards her because i guess some men doesn't wants their manhood to be taken away like that..I mean all around this was a good book very strong chemistery between the heroe and heroine
OMG! The Mallorys are back! This story about Drew was fantastic. This story seems to take place several years after the last one, because James and George have a set of twins they didn't have in Jeremy's book.
A Malory novel...this time featuring Gabrielle Brooks, the daughter of pirate being introduced to society by James Malory. She was searching for a proper husband...but got caught in a passionate game of captor and captive.
Really a great read, starts off with excitement and keeps you wanting to turn the page! The characters are so interesting, the plot keeps you guessing and wanting more to see what happens. Johanna Lindsey never seems to disappoint in her books. A great read all around. You won't be disappointed.
Barbara F. reviewed Captive of My Desires (Malory Family, Bk 8) on
I was quite pleased with this novel. I usually am with most of Lindsey's novels.
This novel is filled with excitement and romance. I found the story to be very enticing and it is a plus that it is a story about pirates, since I am a fan of pirate romances. There is a twist in this story, because usually when you deal with romances novels that are based around the heat of captivity, it is usually the female who is held captive, but this story doesn't exactly go that way. I think this is definitely a novel worth reading
Gabrielle Brooks sets sail from England to a Caribbean island in search of her estranged father and encounters a life-altering surprise - her father is a pirate! After spending three wonderful years hunting treasure with him, Gabrielle is dismayed when he decides she must return to London to find a proper husband. His old friend James Malory will sponsor her in polite society. Gabrielle is escorted to balls and parties by Jame's wife, Georgina, and her brother, Drew Anderson, a dashing American sea captain and fun-loving rogue. When Drew embroils Gabrielle in a scandal the night before he's to sail home, the pirate's daughter vows revenge by commandeering Drew's ship and taking him prisoner. But as passion runs high on their sea voyage, it becomes difficult to tell who is truly the captor and who is the captive.
I absolutely love the Mallory series, but I have to say this is my least favorite out of all the books. I didn't like Drew's character in this book even though when he was in previous books I did like him. Gabrielle wasn't bad. I thought you learned more about Gabrielle in the book than Drew. I didn't feel like I got to know Drew at all. I also looked forward to reading about James as he is my favorite Mallory, but was a little dissapointed. I feel as if there is another writer writing some of Lindsey's newer books sometimes. James' character is sometimes recently been portrayed as scary which isn't the original gorgeous rake/pirate I originally fell in love with. All in all was my least favorite Lindsey book I've read. This was actually the second time I've read it. I read it years ago, but am rereading all the Mallory books in order. I had a hard time finishing it which rarely happens to me. I also found myself dazing out and not actually paying much attention to what I was reading. There is a fairly good part at the end when you get to see a pirate fight and the old James I remember which the book was worth reading for if nothing else.
This book is about Drew Anderson (Brother of Georgie Anderson who married James Mallory). It's not a "Mallory" novel but we see many of the Mallory characters throughout the book. And it is directly related to the Mallory Books. Very good reading.
A book in the Mallory Family series. After her mother's death, to avoid becoming a ward of a lecherous man, Gabrielle sets off to find her estranged father, only to discover he is a pirate! Finding she loves living in the islands and sailing with her father, she is dismayed when Dad decides she must return to England to have a season and find a husband. He arranges for his old friend James Mallory to sponsor her. Gabrielle meets James's brother-in-law, Drew Anderson and after a rocky start decides he will be the man she marries...until he embroils her in a scandal. G takes revenge by commandeering his Drew's ship and taking him prisoner on her trip to rescue her father. But as passions run high, captive and captor are difficult to define.
