Publisher's Summary

Heartsick and desperate to leave her sorrows on England's shores, innocent Georgina Anderson seeks passage on the "gentleman's ship", Maiden Anne, disguised as a cabin boy. The captain, however, is no gentleman; he's the ex-pirate and irrepressible rake, James Malory.

The black sheep of a proud, tempestuous family, Malory soon sees through Georgina's masquerade and is enchanted by the courageous, high-spirited lady he has forced into intimate servitude. But though he has sworn he will never be enticed into matrimony, Captain Malory has finally met his match on the high seas - undone by the passionate heart of one remarkable beauty whose love of freedom and adventure rivals his own.

The saga continues: listen to more romatic tales of the Malory family.

    "Great love story."

    I loved this book when I read it a few years ago. This is one of my favorite out of Johanna Lindsey's Mallory series.

    "fun and entertaining"

    the story was a bit far fetched and some of the events were ridiculous but looking past that it was really entertaining and there were many instances where I thought the dialog extremely amusing! the only issue I had with the narration was that the main character's voice was too guttural and got on my nerves and the narrator's laugh for the men sounded more like someone making fun of Santa Claus but instead of saying "Ho Ho Ho" she said "haw haw haw"
    otherwise - moderate spice, slightly frustrating love story but the characters were great. this was a test to see if I could get into this series and I will definitely read another.

    "Funny and sexy"

    I really liked this one by Johanna Lindsey, and I think I'd rank her among my favourite Romance authors.

    The performance was great! It must have been hard to find someone who could speak with an American, English as well as a Scottish accent! The accents may not have been perfect, but I personally did not notice if they weren't.

    This novel can easily be read without reading the others in the series. I haven't read any other of Lindsey's 'Malory' novels, but was perfectly able to follow this one on its own.

    "Enjoyed the story"

    I enjoyed the story, writing and characters but the narration really got on my nerves. Her attempts at male voices is seriously distracting. The main male character, James Mallory comes across like a 75 year old geezer. The narrator voices male laughter in a completely unnecessary and truly annoying way.

    "My favorite Mallory books"

    After reading "Love only Once" the 1st book in this series, I could not wait to read "Tender Rebel". I liked Regina in the first book but the character development of Anthony her Uncle made be rush to read the book about him, #2 the Tender Rebel. After reading that book I thought how could it get any better than this; and I was not in Love with Regina's other uncle James, also Anthony's brother. However; I committed to read the entire series and I will, I'm on the 4th book now. I was wrong in my assumptions of "how could it get any better than the story of Toni"? Well needless to say I loved this book, and this was my favorite so far. This love story was much different than most I have read, and it had a lot of humor along with steamy love scenes. I would recommend all 4 books so far.

    I am an avid reader. I read during my commute to and from work each day, on the plane when I travel and instead of watching TV.

    "Very disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    I've read the Malory books all out of sequence, mostly because Audible started offering them in the latter part of the series and now has gone back to get some of the earlier books. I found the others to be entertaining if a bit predictable. This one though, is just way too predictable and hokey. The premise that this rich girl from America landed in England with no money is going to be the cabin boy for a rich guy going on his last voyage, and of course, the captain knows she is a woman and insists that the "cabin boy" sleep in his quarters, ... Well, it's just too much. She keeps forgetting that she is suppose to be a cabin boy and shoots off her mouth as a spoiled rich girl and then recovers her assumed persona over and over and right from the start. It's like she's not even trying. I couldn't finish this one and will probably return it. Try the later books in the series if you want a decent if predictable read.

    "Good story and strong performance"

    Enjoyed this book although "A loving scoundrel" is my favourite in the series. Story was good, athough some parts were implausible but it's romance after all. Narrator did a good job as well.

    I adore the Mallorys ! And this book did not disappoint me :) although I feel that with another narrator it might have been perfect ! Laural Merlington is Ok but she did not perform James Mallory well . But still this book is lovely :)
