The first Johanna Lindsey novel I ever read, probably when I was about 13, was Love Only Once, the first in the Malory family series, and it remains my one true favorite of Johanna Lindsey. I can't even count how many times I have read it since that first time. In A Loving Scoundrel: A Malory Novel, the author brings us back to that wonderfully fun, romantic and exciting family that produces more brave,flawed and sexy rakes and intelligent, independent and beautiful ladies than any family has a right to. What I love about Lindsey is she doesn't just write novels from the womans perspective as the main character, but also from the mans, such as she did in A Loving Scoundrel, where she gives Jeremy his chance to shine on his own. While there is always intrigue,romance,antagonists and some delicious love scenes, she also fleshes out characters you feel you know, novel to novel and can genuinely care about. I haven't loved every novel. Some of her more recent works have felt like she rushed through them, but I truly enjoyed this one, as I felt she got back to her Malory roots. I read this book in a day, and as is typical when I read, little else got done. When I read, I look to be entertained, its my favorite form of escapism, and Lindsey delivers in this novel. If you are a Lindsey fan, pick this up soon! If you haven't read her before, I highly recommend beginning with Love Only Once and then reading all the novels in the Malory family. Once you start with Johanna Lindsey, you are compelled to read them all. Not all her novels are based on the Malory family, but I admit, these are my favorites. Set aside some time, as Jeremy and Danny will demand your undivided attention!
