The story just seemed to be too much of a stockholm syndrome story for me, and Celia seemed too vulnerable as the heroine.

I did not know how much I enjoyed this book until I read it again!! The story is perfect. The heroine is naive at first and at conflict with her desires. The hero is dark and brooding!! And the sensuality....There were a few times when I thought the book would burst into flames.
While Celia appears to be delicate, timid, and insecure, underneath it all she has a depth of character and strength that is a common thread in Lisa Kleypas' heroines.
Who could not love Justin? The tormented "pirate" who is tortured by his past, struggling with the need to be free, yet needing to be loved.
Usually, sequels are not nearly as good as the first. But, I think "Only With Your Love", picks up where the story of Max and Lysette left off. We get to see Justin and Phillipe as adults, and we get to see how Max and Lysette's love has continued.
I highly recommend this book to anyone. It has romance, sensuality, adventure, depth, and characters who come to life. You will scream at Celia. You will get mad at Justin. But,you will cheer for them both as you watch them grow as individuals and as a couple.
This is my favorite Lisa Kleypas book, aside from "Dreaming of You".

...and I've read them all except for her earlier books (before 1990) ONLY because I haven't been able to get my hands on them yet! Actually, all her books are great. This continues on the exciting Vallerand family but you don't have to read them in sequence to enjoy it. The love scenes are sensual and all throughout the book! That is one of the best things about Ms. Kleypas. She spoils us with wonderful and frequent heated, steamy romance. The two main characters who are destined for each other are very likeable and he wants her to want him as much as he wants her. I really like this aspect. Him wanting her more rather than the other way around as is usual in most romance novels. There is also a good plot and just when you think you have it all figured out, she'll throw you a curve ball just to make sure you're on your toes.
It also reads very smoothly. All her books are well written and I went thru all her books too quickly. I wish she had written more. I look foward to reading them all over again. Before her, I never had the desire to keep any romance books permanently but you will want to keep this book after you read it.
This book affected me the same as a nice glass of wine would have; warm, happy, content, and craving another one exclaiming disappointed disbelief that it's gone already.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge Kleypas fan, and this is definitely one of my favorites. I think the people who stopped reading after page 100 did themselves a disservice.

Yes, Justin is very unlikeable at first. He takes what he wants when he wants it. That is the point. His upbringing and personality have turned him into a person who has no regard for anyone else's feelings. He admits it himself. And Celia hates him for it.

When he is wounded and comes to his father's to be healed, he is very resistant to the idea of needing anyone, much less Celia. Celia is very resistant to having any feelings for him, and calls him a "filthy pirate".

As she is caring for him, though, his defenses crumble and the good person underneath the jerk starts to shine through. The story is about redemption, and how a bad person might not be all bad with the right elements in place.

I think his transformation from the terrible, selfish, nasty pirate to a caring, loving person is a wonderful story.

I agree, there are some eyebrow raising plot items, such as Celia not recognizing him as an identical twin, and his nobel brother Philippe having an affair with a seamstress, but it's a romance novel - they almost all have some plot items that wouldn't stand a lot of scrutiny. Also, I believe the reason she threw in the affair for Philippe was to make Celia leaving him believable. If he had come back from being a prisoner and been beaten down and broken, Celia's personality would not have allowed her to choose Justin over him as a matter of honor and because of the goodness in her heart. As a reader, I believed that choosing Justin was the right thing for her to do since Philippe was in love with someone else as well. It was necessary for the story to turn out the way it did.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In many ways, this is a lovely story and sequel to Kleypas' dynamite book, Only In Your Arms. However, there is one major drawback to this story that can't be overlooked and that is Celia, the heroine. She is inconsistent, contradictory, spineless, cold, indifferent and without charm or joy. I can find no logical reason for the very robust and vibrant Justin to be attracted to her in either love or lust. That said, the story is interesting and well-written and I did enjoy revising Max and Lysette.
While I can't give an unqualified thumbs-up, the passion is certainly first rate and I can say that most readers will not be overly disappointed. Some may even enjoy the book very much, depending on how they feel about Celia.

I agree with the previous reviewer. This is Lisa Kleypas' best book by far. It also has one of the hottest love scenes I've ever read.
French-born Celia is a new bride on a voyage to her husband Philippe's home in New Orleans when her ship is attacked by pirates and Philippe is killed. She is taken to an island where a privateer called Griffin wins her in a fight.
Griffin takes her through the bayou, seduces her against her will, and delivers her safely to the home of the Vallerands, her husband's family. There she learns that Griffin (whom she hates) is also connected to this family. When he is injured by the same pirate that killed her husband, Griffin is brought to the Vallerand home and Celia is forced to deal with him in close quarters.
