More lists with this book...
It's been a while since I read a Johanna Lindsey that wasn't a re-read. But a bunch of her stuff was on mega sale via kindle a while a back so I picked up this little never-before-read nugget in addition to some "kindle replacements" for some of her old paperbacks I have had since I was 12.
Because anytime I can get books with covers like these off my shelves?
And avoid getting this look when hubby's hot friends drop a box of books on moving day and 1980's Fabio and friends ...more
3 Stars - Charming "oldish" and undoubtedly entertaining sweet
Love Only Once is a quite old (1985) both loved and disliked historical. I couldn't resist when I saw it was just a few bucks for the kindle book including the 7:50 hrs audiobook narrated by Laural Merlington. We'll see if it is a dreadful miss or a happy winner for me.
LOL!! I'm not sure... was it a miss?
Ridiculously fun - I'm almost ashamed but I actually smiled and giggled in nearly eight hours. This, despite ...more
General idiocy ensues.
The heroine's name is Regina, but I got slammed with "Reggie" the entire book. Shoot me.
When I see "Reggie" my mind immediately goes to Upper Class Twit, not Smokey Siren of Seduction.
She really was sumthin' speshul, and her relationship with her uncles was such that, had the auth ...more

Ora bem, acho (tenho a certeza) de que a saga Malory veio para ficar e para conquistar um lugar nos corações dos leitores portugueses. Foi, sem sombra de qualquer dúvida, uma excelente aposta da ASA, que já nos habituou a grandes famílias e a grandes histórias, o grande exemplo sendo a nossa querida família Bridgerton.
Regina Malory é, no mínimo, uma personagem *deliciosa*. Tem personalidade forte, tem piada e tem muita inteligência, bem como uma força interior do tamanho da Arca de No ...more
This is the first book that I have read by Johanna Lindsey and it was a relatively typical historical romance. I probably won't remember it after a few days, but it was quick and entertaining, which is usually all I ask for. Nicholas and Regina's story is very cute though a little exasperating at times. While the characters are great, it's frustrating because there is no communication and a lot of misunderstandings.
I almost gave it four stars, but the vanquishing of the villain was too ...more
Ahhhh adorei aquela família... ihihihi adorei mesmo, aqueles irmãos... :P
