Publisher's Summary

Scottish beauty Roslynn Chadwick needs the safety of marriage to protect her from an unscrupulous cousin and the fortune-hunting scoundrels who covet her wealth. And Anthony Malory is precisely the sort of handsome rogue she's been warned against.

A cunning, ruthless, yet irresistible rake, Anthony's sensual blue eyes speak of pleasures beyond her imagining - and Roslynn, believing his passionate promises will surely lead to disaster, dearly wishes she dared to surrender to such a man. But denying her heart may cost the exquisite Highlands lady an unparalleled love hotter than flame and more precious than the rarest jewel.

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

    "Bad narrator"

    The story has some problems but the main issue is Laural Merlington. She absolutely can NOT do these accents. And please, please STOP voicing the laugh! It is VERY irritating, it not only pulls me out of the story, I cringe every time I hear "he/she chuckled/laughed" cause I know that horrible "heh, heh, heh" laugh sound will follow. I have managed to listen to Merlington before. She does the laugh on Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series also. The *laugh* combined with the HORRIBLE accents make this a very unpleasant listen.

    "Great story"

    The Malory Novels are wonderful. I only wish that Audible would get all of the Malory Novels.

    "Disappointing narration"
    Would you try another book from Johanna Lindsey and/or Laural Merlington?

    Love Johanna Lindsey but Laural Merlington was not the right voice for her books. In Gentle Rogue she made James/Hawke sound like a troll instead of a sexy pirate.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator does not have the voice or range to play the many male roles in JL's books. I finally gave up and just read them.


    Any additional comments?

    When you have a series and the main characters are male, a male narrator or very versatile female should do the narration. It is hard for me to understand how the production staff can allow this quality to come to Audible.

    "LOVELY READ"

    Usually I only remove my ipod from my car when I am close to the end of a book, because then you HAVE to finish, but this one got the best of me - I removed it on Friday and it was done by Sunday.

    The Malory family are a great bunch, I love hearing about their antics and the story line; although predictable; is wonderful!

    Johanna, lovely writing - Thank you

    "Tender Rebel (Unabridged)"

    Very entertaining. I listened to this while traveling alone on a long trip. I was so into the story; I didn't mind the empty passenger seat! J.L. is an all time favorite of mine. Thank you Johanna Lindsey for coming along on a cross country trip that would have otherwise been very dreary!

    "Enjoyable"

    I have just finished listening to this novel and am now waiting for the 'Gentle Rogue' to download.
    At first look, I was uncertain if I would enjoy this series, so I started with this second book 'Tender Rebel' as the synopsis appealed to me the most.
    At one point Roslynn began to annoy me, simply because she believed the worse in Anthony with very little evidence to feed her distrust. Personally, I found this frustrating and a little unbelievable that she could be that dim-witted. It distracted me for a while but I've listened to far worse plots with far more annoying female protagonists so I got over it in the end and continued enjoying the story. Apart from this, it was any easy listen and held my interest with everything you look for in a fun, delightful romance story.
    I must say, it was very clever of the author to introduce the next novel's plot during this story. I think I may now be hooked on the Malory series.

    "good story ruined by an awful narrator"

    My title says it all. This is one of my favorite stories and it was ruined. Who picks out these narrators? I don't think these people get how important the narrators are.

    "I'm addicted to Johanna Lindsey"

    I am now addicted to Johanna Lindsey's books. I'm sorry it took me so long to discover this series.

    This was delightful. Lindsey's books are quite humorous (I sure hope that was her intention) and the characters are colorful and interesting. This book is no exception. I truly enjoyed this.

    The one negative I can point to is that the narrator's Scottish accent sounds like an Irish brogue and was a bit distracting. But I've already downloaded Book 3 in this series.

    My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.

    Story
    "The Kind Of Man We Dream Of."
    What made the experience of listening to Tender Rebel the most enjoyable?

    Narrator Laural Merlington definitely delivers her best performance thus far. She has gotten much better at the male character voices & has even begun adding soft, tenderness in her delivery of the words we women crave to hear from our leading man. It made my listening experience as real as reading the book & being carried away to England. Johanna Lindsey knocked this book out of the park. Tender Rebel is primarily Anthony & Roslynn's story, but we get to enjoy more of James Mallory's rebellious & quite humorous personality. As Jeremy Mallory (James' 17 year old son) would say..... "Hell's Bell's" this was a great book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tender Rebel?

    In this book Anthony & his brother James are reunited and seem to pick up right where the left off before James took to the seas 10 years earlier. The brothers amuse themselves with hilarious banter every chance they get. Don't let that fool you though, cause when it comes to family the Mallory men are tender yet very protective & always have each other's back.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I think I had a constant smile on my face throughout the entire story & yes I most definitely laughed.
