Johanna Lindsey sweeps readers into the privileged world of English aristocrats and the exotic haunts of Caribbean treasure hunters in a new novel of passion and romantic adventure featuring the incomparable Malorys - a family of dashing rogues, spirited ladies, and rakehell adventurers. Now American rogue Drew Anderson meets his match when his brother-in-law James Malory introduces the daughter of a pirate to London society.

Johanna Helen Lindsey (née Howard, March 10, 1952 – October 27, 2019) was an American writer of historical romance novels. All of her books reached the New York Times bestseller list, many reaching No. 1. Her father was Edwin Dennis Howard, a soldier in the . Army, stationed in Germany, where she was born. The family moved about a great deal when she was young. Her father always dreamed of retiring to Hawaii and after he died in 1964, Lindsey and her mother settled there to honor him.

After the death of her mother, Gabrielle Brooks sets sail for the Caribbean to meet her father. En route, she is captured by pirates and held hostage, only to be ransomed by another pirate a?? her father! After three glorious years, her father sends her back to London to marry. While Gabrielle is beautiful and educated, she has no real desire to enter London society. But Georgina, wife of former gentleman pirate James Malory, and her brother, Drew Anderson, persist in making Gabrielle accompany them to balls and parties. Drew, a funa??loving rogue, is drawn to Gabrielle, but he wants nothing to do with a husbanda??hunting young woman. After he embarrasses her at a ball, she knows it will take extreme measures to make him admit that he can't live without her...

Okay, background here. I was driving to and from Colorado, non-stop each way, for a wedding. At a rest stop I decided that I needed something to keep me occupied in the weary hours of the morning while the husband and kids were asleep. Found the only romance on audio that they had, and listened to it on the return drive. Imagine, if you will, that it's the hours between about 11 p.m. (when everyone fell asleep) and 5 a.m. (when my leg of the drive was over). Imagine also, that I can't recall ever reading any other Johanna Lyndsey books, so this is my first exposure to her work.

So, now, about the story. Wow. It was... hilarious. That's why I gave it 2 stars instead of one. This was hilarious in the way that Mystery Science Theater is, as you can have so much fun making fun of this book. Part of it, I admit, would not be the author's fault. I had never listened to a romance novel on audio before, and there is something incredibly funny about a woman trying to speak the "sensual" or "erotic" dialogue of a man. It just didn't work. Gabrielle's character sounded like a 12 year old girl, and Drew sounded like a very angry, possibly constipated, grandpa. Now put the two of them in a sex scene, and you can see my humorous reaction.

As I mentioned, though, that is not the fault of the author. What IS the fault of the author, however, is the actual story and dialogue that the poor woman was trying to give voice to. Because I was listening to it "unfold", it was very easy to see that there was no obvious reason for Drew and Gabby to like each other, other than mutual attraction. There was certainly nothing that brought it to the level of love. It was also much easier to see just how stilted, stunted, and absurd the dialogue and interactions were. By the time we got to "You stole my virginity", I was literally smacking my forehead at the absurdity. (Shamefully, I woke my husband up. I felt bad. But it didn't stop my from doing it again, after the THIRD TIME she said it!)

Everything was just so... trite. So absurd. So overdone and stereotypical. It was laughable, which is not usually what I prefer my romance novels to be. It was, however, a nice diversion on a 25 hour drive. I can't complain too much about that -- hence the 2 star rating. If you must read/listen to this, make sure you get it CHEAP, as that's all it's good for -- a few cheap laughs (and head smackings, which hurt like the dickens the 6, 8, 10th times you do it).

I have read all of Lindsey's novels and am one of the legions of her readers who think that the older novels are in a class by themselves, not matched by the newer ones. This latest novel by Lindsey does not buck that trend, although she manages to recreate some happy memories of her writing when she returns to the Malory clan. The book has excitment and adventure but is careless in the character development and plotline. Written by another author, the expectations would not be so high and this would pass as a good read. But, this is, after all, Johanna Lindsey, whose many novels are absolutely spell-binding.

In this story she returns to the Caribbean scene and pirates. It is less interesting than previous novels set here. Her plotline frequently runs to silly when she groups all the "rescuers" discussing their plans--in the middle of a public inn? Not in the privacy of one of their ships? Or in a private room? Hello? Didn't the editors grasp that this was ridiculously unreal for captains who strategize battles etc? Men who are used to spies everywhere? So of course this device allows their plans to be overheard and go awry. Couldn't she have been a little more thoughtful and clever? Why so sloppy?

Drew, the hero of the tale,is described physically in endless detail. Until the last chapters of the book we never get to feel what he is feeling or thinking except raw physical reactions. When we do, it is as though she is hurrying to finish the book and what she writes about him is totally predictable and disappointing. Yes, the characters do interact, and the story is fast-paced. But it is ho-hum. It is worth reading, but if you really want to have a true Lindsey experience go read her older novels and see why she was once so great.

This book was one that I both loved and hated at times. Things I loved: Gabrielle the heroine, many scenes with both James Mallory and Georgina (the subjects of my all time favorite Malory novel "Gentle Rogue"), a great adventure of a story and a page turning story. Things I hated: two words the 'hero.' I was so disappointed in Drew's story. Having read the story about Boyd Anderson, which I found sweet and sexy, I was so looking forward to this one and it just fell flat. As a hero, Drew comes off as arrogant, and horrible! Not only does he get drunk and spread a rumor that ensures Gabrielle won't have a chance in making a marriage he is totally unrepentant about it! Then when he takes her virginity ( a scene that many are calling rape) and still feels little if any remorse, I was done with him. By the end of the book I was wishing James Malory would have taken him to the pugilist ring and not stopped pummeling until he was bloody from head to toe!! There always has to be an appropriate amount of groveling when a 'hero' acts as this guy does and there was nowhere enough! And I am sorry, the fact that she had Gabrielle's passion for him over ride her good sense no matter how he treated her just annoyed me no end!!!! If I were Gabrielle, I would have thrown him overboard.
