Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Johanna Lindsey now reveals the tempestuous story of Jacqueline Malory, whose furious desire for revenge leads to a confrontation with the handsome pirate who abducted her - and sparks a much steamier kind of desire.

For the first time, James Malory and his Anderson in-laws agree on something: It's payback time for the culprit who kidnapped James and Georgina's beloved daughter, Jack, from her American debutante party and whisked her away to the Caribbean, no matter that she escaped unscathed. James figured out who masterminded the dastardly plot and is leading a fleet of ships to the West Indies to deliver some Malory-style retribution.

More interested in revenge than in finding a husband during her first London Season, Jack is furious that her father left her behind. Then an intriguing stranger leads her and her older brother, Jeremy, to her mysterious abductor. But instead of capturing him, the Malory siblings wind up as his "guests" on a ship sailing away from England. As Jack reengages in a battle of wills with her all too attentive captor, she realizes he is no ordinary pirate, perhaps no pirate at all, but a nobleman determined to settle a score that dates back to the days when her father was known as Captain Hawk - and what endangers her most is the increasingly passionate attraction they feel for each other.

Is this the last Malory?

I enjoyed it. I can only rate the story. I've been a fan of Ms. Lindsay since the early 80's. From cowboys to pirates and then off planet adventures, the writing has been superb.
Since no younger Malorys made an appearance in the book, I'm taking it as an indication that the Georgian Malorys are done.
I hope Johanna has it in her to extend the family to the 21st century before she quits.

Anyone else annoyed by the main character?

What disappointed you about Beautiful Tempest?

Maybe it was the narrator, but Jack just came across as a spoiled, entitled jerk of a girl. Not very many likable traits to keep you interested.

Waited a lifetime for this book

Would you listen to Beautiful Tempest again? Why?

I have been waiting since I was 15 and first ready Gentle Rogue for this book to come out. I devoured it when it came out and just now listened to the audio version. The story is great and the narrator wasn't too bad, all though I am dreaming of the day a new Simon Prebble emerges to the audio world.

What does Beverley A. Crick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nothing, she was alright but nothing spectacular. I was more of a reading than story telling.
