Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

American Katey Tyler’s plans to travel the world in search of adventure take a slight detour when ends up in an English jail. Englishman Boyd believes that she had played a part in the kidnapping of his brother-in-law Anthony Malory’s daughter Judith, when, in reality, Katey had rescued Judith. Boyd eventually discovers the truth, but it’s too late. Katey swears she will never forgive Boyd, which is a problem since he plans on marrying her. The plot is stereotypical fairy-tale romance, but fans of best-selling Lindsey’s Regency historical series featuring the Malorys won’t mind since the author’s signature blend of witty writing, charmingly unique characters, and a sexy love story continues to be irresistible. --John Charles --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I don't expect complicated stories from this author but she has created a wonderful family in the Malorys. However, this book was an incredible disappointment. Katey and Boyd's story was at best a nouvella plunked down in what appears to be a book of boring backstory telling the reader all about the family members and their stories at the expense of Katey and Boyd's. First off her loyal readers know those stories and it would only have been important to tell the uninformed reader if it was relevant to this couples' story but it wasn't. The problem then was she spent so much time in the backstory of the Malory clan and the absolutely incredible cliched story of Sir Anthony and Katey that she forgot about Boyd and his need to court his lady.

At best all the reader saw was Boyd's lust for Katey and her need to be part of a family, this isn't the stuff of good romance fiction and Lyndsey knows that as should her editor. As this was a romance, where was the sexual tension and the "ah" factor? No black moment, no sexual tension. Don't expect it in this book, it isn't there. Sadly she finally spent the last three pages of the book bringing Katey and Boyd together which was the biggest sellout to her loyal readers and after thought at best. This couple deserve their own book and this one clearly isn't it. Makes one wonder if she actually wrote this book or was it the last book on a publisher's contract.

I would say buy the book used later on, but Loyal readers know the Malory stories already and Katey and Boyd just don't have enough of a story to bother to purchase this one new or used.. So my suggestion is to read her back list if you aren't familair with the Malorys and hope her next offering is more judiciously edited by her editor.

I've enjoyed the Malory series and the off-shoot Anderson books, but this one just irritated me.

The interaction between the hero and heroine was rushed at first when the vital foundation of their attraction needed to occur and they spent the rest of the time alternating in treating each other badly. Both had moments where they were 'too-stupid-to-live' and, although the reader knows from his inner thoughts and motivations that Boyd is not a villain, some of his actions were beyond smarmy and inexcusable.

The Malorys appeared which is usually a bonus, but at one point Anthony and James (whose glib back-and-forth is becoming tiresome IMO) took over the entire story with a reveal that wasn't even hinted at until halfway through the book. Considering how much the characters involved appeared in the first half, that whole plot point (even with its importance) seemed like an afterthought. Boyd eventually dropped out entirely due to this story line and we didn't even check back in with him until three pages before the end when he showed up for the HEA.

During the Big Moment (similar to Danny's experience in 'A Loving Scoundrel') Boyd wasn't even there. It was Katey with the two Malory brothers and all of the chapters dealing with that business were long and detailed (in some cases taking pages to retell other Malory novels which is annoying to say the least when they weren't crucial to this story).

I'm very open to new things in novels. I don't need the traditional template. But this was unorganized and had a 'dashed off' feel to it. It felt as if the author had grabbed a few romance novel staples, strung them together and plugged a couple of decent characters into the creation.

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". 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.
