This book has a nice story but more important it introduces some very interesting characters - the Mallorys - who will be the characters of the series..Show More ». It is a good intro that definitely captured my interest and made me want the next one.
And the saga continues. The Mallory family is a radical collection of loveable scalywags and Johanna Lindsey knows just how to tell their stories.

If she and Tony can just get to the point of trusting each other all should be well.
It's been years since I read all of the Mallory books by Lindsey and listening to them is even more fun. Warren's story has a few twists and turns and..Show More » you wonder whether or not he'll ever give in....but Amy is a wonderful character and she wins in the end.
This reader is great. She captures the personalities of all of the characters without making James and Anthony sound like old geezers.
I read/listened to all of the Mallory books. I have to say that this one is a bit darker than the others. Unlike the other stories where the heroine ..Show More »is rescued, this time she is taken by a truly sick and demented person. If it weren't a Lindsey novel, I would wonder if she was going to make it out alive.
The reader is also different which takes some getting used to. He is not bad, just different.
Jeremy is my favorite of the Malory men, although very closely followed by James and Derek. This was an excellent book and I didn't want to stop list..Show More »ening. The only thing that bothered me was the way the narrator pronounced Regina's name. Just a small thing though and she did an excellent job with all the different voices.
Johanna Lindsey has written some really good romance novels a la "Johnny Depp's Pirates of the Carribean". You know the story is far fetched, the char..Show More »acters are cartoon like in the fact that her hero can take on a half dozen men without a scratch and the heroine is always the most stunning beauty, but she is the last to know that. Nevertheless, I have loved most of her books as the characters were likeable and the rogues always fell head over heels in love and became model husbands. With regards to the Anderson family, my favorite story of course is that of Georgina and James in Gentle Rogue (coming on audiobooks this month). I also thought she found an excellent match for Drew in Gabi in Captive of My Desires and that Amy was what Warren needed to cure his broken heart in The Magic of You. This book however is a huge disappointment. Boyd, sweet gentle Boyd deserved better than a whiny, vindictive, lying woman such as Katie. I listened to the audio and turned it off 2.5 hrs before the story was over as I could no longer stomach this idiot woman. One moment she is having sex with Boyd and the next, she is furious with him. How many times is a person supposed to apologize before you give him a break. Her constant humiliation to him in public made her rude, lacking class and tact in my opinion. She was just very unsympathetic for me to root for her. If you want to read a good Lindsey book, grab "A Loving Scoundrel"; "Captive of My Desires"; "The Magic of You"; "A Gentle Rogue"; or "Marriage Most Scandalous". Hopefully audible will have them all on their list soon. Stay away from "A man to call my own"; "the Devil who Tamed Her'; "Home For the Holidays"; and "No Choice But Seduction". They are not Lindsey's best work.
This book I was unsure about, Yet i knew that I love the others in the series so i took the gamble that this would be as good as i was hoping, IT di..Show More »d not disappoint me at all..
I found the story line different, 1- being for the arranged marriage that had to do with money only 2- the controlling parents. 3- The 17 year old son running away to find a life away from the controlling parent: 4- the understanding what love verses infatuation is 5- how they overcome for a happy ending..
This was one of those romances where the two main characters hate each other all growing up and how they overcome there circumstances. IT is a great summer read.. I hope that you like it as much as I did.
