Publisher's Summary

As wild and reckless as the most incorrigible of her male cousins, young Amy Malory has reached marriageable age, and she has set her amorous sights on a most unsuitable mate: the handsome, straightlaced ship's captain who once nearly had her uncle James hung for piracy.

Warren Anderson is shocked by the brazen advances of his despised enemy's high-spirited niece. Still tormented by an unfaithful former lover's past treachery, he is determined to resist Amy's charms. But an overpowering yearning for the enchanting minx threatens to defeat his defiant heart and force its sensuous surrender to a love that could stoke the fires of a perilous family feud.

NARRATOR REVIEW!!

I'm writing this review in a state of total confusion! Johanna Lindsey is great as usual, But that's not what this review is about.
I usually like Laura Merlington as a narrator. But this performance seems a total aberration!!! I think I would have noticed before if every laugh sounded like Santa Claus in one form of HO HO HO or another. HA HA HA, HE HE HE, HM HM HM, .... WHAT?! I REALLY mean WHAT!
I have never heard a more blatant performance mistake, forget one so often repeated that I cringed every time I thought a laugh was coming. Even giggles ended up being a feminine Santa parrody!

What really surprised me was that I had just finished a book which was beautifully narrated by the same performer and did not hear that flaw even once. I'm sure of it, I could not of missed hearing it, it is THAT bad!!!
So.... is it just this performance? Was this a early affectation that she corrected? I'm obviously confused.

I did something I never did before.... I skipped most of the book! We all know how a HEA historical romance ends.... but this time the last 45 minutes were important as I skipped the previous few hours...( I am planning on giving up or trudging through if I ever have that urge again.)

LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK.

STORYLINE: Sweet!
HEAT FACTOR: Steamy!
CREDITWORTHY? Questionable!

Those wonderful Mallorys

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 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.

Painful!

Even though I read the reviews, I thought maybe some were just exaggerating, but they were right on the money! I forced myself to finish listening to this one. Amy is a stalker and a naive and foolish one at that! I think Warren took way too long to beat her butt, it was long overdue.

annoying

I am a big fan of JL books and the Mallory series but this one was bad. Amy is beyond annoying, she is like a modern day stalker. It is beyond unrealistic to be rejected so many times and yet remain so confident you are going to get your way. That plus the entire book hyped up all of the other characters more than the two stars of this one.

It is not the absolute worst read but it was close

Stopped before Ruination

I LOVE this whole series! I have read it numerous times. I had to stop listening. I didn't think anything could ruin the wonderful alpha Mallory men. This performance almost did. The men's voices are terrible!

Almost perfect!

I love this book! Amy is definitely a Mallory, and Warren is someone to fight for. Narrator has potential, but please lose the sound effects. Chuckles and giggles do not enhance, but rather annoy. Also, James sounds like a crusty old man. NOT the way he's described in the book. Tony was done pretty well, and Amy and Georgina were fine. I'll surely listen again. All the Mallory books are worth repeat "reads."
