Publisher's Summary

After her mother died, vivacious Katey Tyler fled her dull Connecticut town, hoping to meet her relatives in England and find adventure and romance on a grand tour of Europe. She had no idea that her life-changing travels would have both in spades - as well as danger and intrigue - when she catches the eye of ship owner Boyd Anderson and inadvertently stumbles upon a high-stakes kidnapping.

When Sir Anthony Malory's young daughter is abducted from London's Hyde Park, her kidnapper mistakenly sends the ransom note to the home of Sir Anthony's brother, James. With James and his wife, Georgina, in the Caribbean, the demands are received by their houseguest - Georgina's youngest brother, Boyd Anderson. Searching for the girl with Anthony, the notoriously hot-headed American sea captain fully intends to make the foolhardy villain pay. But he hardly expects to find exquisite Katey Tyler, recently a passenger on his ship, at the center of the plot!

Little does Katey realize that in having caught the attention of Boyd Anderson - and in meeting up with the Malorys - she's about to experience more excitement than the typical young lady encounters on a grand tour, and her life will never be dull again. For a multitude of surprises await Katey, from the startling truth about her mother's early life. . . to the lengths a man will go to win the affections of a lady who has every reason to despise him - but who can't resist the seductive, impassioned love he has to offer her.

Not Lindsey's best, disappointing Mallory novel.

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 characters 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.

Another Winner

Johanna Lindsey's No Choice But Seduction wasn't just another Mallory story, although the Mallorys were certainly a major part of the story. This time it's Boyd's story and the object of his interest, Katey Tyler, has a story that affects not only Boyd's life, but the Mallorys as well.

There were more twists and turns in this novel and my only negative is that Katey seemed to hold her resentments a bit too long. Otherwise, I enjoyed both the novel and the narrator.

Read only if nothing else is available

I put my Ipod on the Faster speed, in order to get through this. The heroin was the bubbly headed silly girl, and the hero the strong silent type who couldn't control himself around his dream girl. Don't waste your time unless there's nothing else to read.

A good listen

This is one of my favorites of Johanna Lindsey's books. I guess it seems more plausible than some of the others; also, the different sub-plots have happy endings.

unoriginal

This is another story of the Mallory family. It is alot like all of the other Mallory family books. Spends too much time talking about the history of the other characters. I would like something new from Johanna Lindsey. It has been a long time since she has written something original.
The narrator was pretty good but, the men sounded like gravel voiced seamen and the women were whiney sounding.

Lust or Love it was a good story!

I honestly do Not agree with the low ratings this book had. Was the heroine a liar? Perhaps, but to me she seem to embellish her stories and book even explains why! She had an active imagination but was innocent to an extent & knew not the real world. I’m actually surprise because a woman of her age usually only wants marriage so for me it was refreshing. I guess she reminded of me. I too wanted to travel and have fun before settling down. She learns from her mistakes and grows so I liked that as well. The hero did put me off at times because he sure got way ahead of himself and had no tact. Overall, I laughed out loud more than once and I enjoyed having the Malory’s.

I loved Katy & Boyd. Katy, while generous and compassionate is very protective of her idea of doing a world tour. She wants adventure and to experience more life than the little town she grew up in. Boyd is tired of adventure. He's ready to settle down on land and have a stable quiet life with a family of his own. How these two come together and resolve their individual dreams is quite the story.

Made me laugh and cry

I laughed out loud. Anthony and James were out of their comfort zone at times and i found this hilarious. Boyd and Katey were also funny. The storyline kept me interested as it had alot going on. Emotional moments when Judy is missing. This is my favourite in the series.
