Romance write Lindsey stays true to form?and formula?as she continues to chronicle the romantic entanglements of the Malory clan. Set in Regency England, sometime between 1811 and 1820, the latest Malory novel (after Love Me Forever) includes the three stock romantic figures: a Virgin, a Villain and a Rogue. The Virgin is Kelsey Langton, who willingly agrees to be auctioned off in a London whorehouse to pay her uncle's debts and ensure her younger sister a marriageable future. The Rogue is handsome Lord Derek Malory, who plunks down a fortune to make Kelsey his mistress rather than see her bought by the Villain, Lord David Ashford, an insane sadist who takes his sex with a healthy splash of blood. The implausible set-up quickly becomes ludicrous as Malory falls in love with Kelsey, but her unwillingness to reveal her true background prevents a wedding. Malory's ardor for Kelsey is inflamed when Ashford kidnaps her, necessitating a heroic rescue in a grisly dungeon where Kelsey is on the verge of being whipped and mutilated for Ashford's pleasure

A wonderful read. Another one of the unforgettable Malorys- cousin Derek this time-with a story that has sensuality, humor and romantic adventure. Always fun to read about this family.

I'm hoping that "Say You Love Me" is not a reflection of all Johanna Lindsey's novels. It was boring and silly; the hero lacks manliness and the readers get little exposure to the heroine. I finished reading the book but only because I skimmed through most of the book which involved secondary characters and the rambling thoughts of the hero. I've read some good reviews about Lindsey's other work, I'll give one of her other books a try.

So this is book 5 in the Malory series and I liked it. The villain was a little heinous, but it didn't bother me. Be forewarned though it may bother some people. I liked Derek's story. Kelsey wasn't my favorite heroine, but was still liked. I enjoyed reading more about Derek's father and seeing more of James. However I have to admit that this is the book I look at to mark the point I think the Malory novels started going downhill. I just don't enjoy 6, 7, 8 as much as books 1-5. The first 4 were amazing. All charcters wonderful and perfect in every way. There is just so much lacking in the later novels. I wonder if Lindsey is even writing some of her own books sometimes. I'm reading number 9 now and I am liking it so far and I have high hopes for book 10. All in all I recommend reading all the Malory novels as they are such a wonderful family and series, but after this book the books do start to go downhill.

After finding out from her uncle that the family is on the verge of ruin, Kelsey Langton agrees to sell herself to the highest bidder in an auction at a Gentlemens club. She hopes to find a man who will treat her kindly and pay enough to cover the familys debts. Lord Derek Malory isnt shopping for a mistress when he visits the club with his friends. But when he sees Lord Ashton is the highest bidder, he knows he has to win her. Lord Ashton is a known sadist who uses a whip on his women. Derek cant stand the thought of seeing the beautiful woman damaged by Ashton.

Derek sets Kelsey up as his mistress. The longer they are together, the more their relationship grows. Keeping her from his family gets to be hard when one family member after another sees them together. But the person Derek has to keep away from Kelsey is Lord Ashton who has sworn that Kelsey will one day be his.

I read this book years ago when it was first released and loved it. This re-read hasnt changed my mind. Derek is one of those perfect heroes any woman would love to have. Kelsey is a strong woman who braves the worst for her family. We are also treated to the rest of the Malory family and their hilarious bickering. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
