Καθε φορά που θα διαβαζω βιβλίο με τους Μαλορι και βρισκονται μεσα ο Άντονι και ο Τζέιμς, η βαθμολογια θα ειναι πάντα υψηλη.
Οι διάλογοι μεταξυ τους ειναι τοσο έξυπνοι και ξεκαρδιστικοί που δεν θες να τελειώσει το ββλίο!
Θα το λέω σε καθε βιβλίο της σειράς, οτι αυτο το δίδυμο το έχω βάλει στην καρδιά μου ❤

3,5/5 αστεράκια.

Το στόρυ μου άρεσε αρκετά -συνεχίζω να λέω πως δεν μπορεί να κατηγορήσει κανείς την Lindsey πως επαναλαμβάνεται- και μάλιστα συμπάθησα τον Μπόιντ Άντερσον περισσότερο απ' ότι περίμενα. Αυτή που δεν μπορώ να πω πως κατασυμπάθησα ήταν η Κέιτι. Είναι μεν τολμηρή και ανοιχτόμυαλη,αν σκεφτεί κανείς πως θέλει να γυρίσει τον κόσμο,αλλά ταυτόχρονα εκνευριστική και υπερβολικά εύθικτη,μην πω και ανώριμη επιπλέον. Συμπεριφέρεται μία έτσι και μία αλλιώς,ανάλογα με τα κέφια της και με το πώς

Keluarga Malory memang gak ada dua nya...
Bikin ngakak mulu..

Nvl ini giliran putra bungsu keluarga Anderson, Boyd yg jd hero.
Yup, dia kakak Georgie, adik ipar James Malory.
Dan tentu saja, dia adik Warren yg menikah dgn Amy Malory-putri bungsu Edward Malory.

Boyd satu2nya putra keluarga Anderson yg memiliki kapal tp tidak menjadi kapten kapalnya sendiri.
Dia punya alesan nya tentu saja-yg gw, Katey, James n Tony anggap lucu.. ROTFL!
Skrg umur Boyd 34 taon, dan dia mulai brpikir ttg pernikahan, pinda

Well, I finished the book last night and I still hold my belief that Johanna Lindsey's writing is not as good as it has been in the past. The story seemed rushed and the romance between the two characters was pushed instead of being allowed to develop on its own. I was really hoping this book would demonstrate the type of writing that Lindsey is well known for from her previous novels, but that wasn't the case. I hate to say this, but if this is an example of what Lindsey is has become, I would ...more

About the Series:
This is your typical HR series. Wealthy & powerful English nobility at its finest; but this is not your typical family. Meet the Malorys. A beautiful, strong, determined, humorous & overall very enjoyable family. Beautiful people finding beautiful soul-mates sometimes quite begrudgingly. This family is full of stubborn & driven people that are lovely & hilarious. The men are sexy, strong, rake type alpha males; who are fun, carefree, witty & quite determined

I like Linsey's old writing style much better. it seemed to me that this book didn't have the passion, humor, or danger that previous Mallory novels had. It felt like I was reading a book written to satisfy a publisher and not to entertain the reader.

No Choice But Seduction was such a good book. Growing up in a small, boring town Katey became a woman with a big imagination who tended to exaggerate her tales in order to make her stories more exciting. After her mother died she decided to travel around the world and experience a big adventure. She thought that by traveling the world she would live a more exciting life. She didn’t know that her journey would end up being her biggest adventure yet. She wins the eyes of Boyd Anderson who tries ov ...more

The Mallory series ranks up there as one of my faves, but I have to admit that this one didn't really do it for me (furthermore, I barely remember the last one, which is a sure sign I need to go back and read the whole series again).

Boyd Anderson first meets Katey Tyler on his ship as he takes her to England where she's hoping to see more of the world and reconnect with the family who disowned her mother many years ago. Katey has a talent for telling tales, and so she tells him she's married to

I liked it but it wasn’t as good as some of the author’s other works.

There was no developing of a relationship between Boyd and Katey. He falls in love with her at first sight. She puts up a wall saying she is married so he’ll stay away from her, which he tries to do. Later, due to mistaken circumstances, he thinks she is a kidnapper and treats her harshly. She gets mad and doesn’t forgive him. For the rest of the book, she is either mad at him or running away from him for different reasons. I w

Another malory novel!!! I still love anthony and james. My God, what would Lindsey do without those two to give everything some badly needed spice. I mean, the romance did just not work for me. It felt rushed.

Anyway, I still got my mind blown and had tear streaks down my face after I finished reading. Not from sadness or anything, but from laughing too much. Lols.
The 9 addition to the Malory-Anderson Family series by Johanna Lindsey. The book had its moments and was readable but lacked so much of what the reader expects from this author. Ms. Lindsey has been a favorite of mine for many years but her last few books didn't grab me like her earlier ones.

Okay, I'm cheating here, and I don't like them all equally, but I do love the Mallory's. They're all funny. I especially liked Love Only Once (the first book), Gentle Rogue (my favorite), and The Magic of You (where the heroine chases the hero shamelessly).

I think this is my least favorite of the series. I just didn't seem to have the same spark that the others before it all have.

I've been reading The Malory Family series since a co-worker and fellow avid reader recommended them to me years ago. We often share books and she once outed me in staff meeting - about reading romance novels. A few weeks ago while she was on a marketing business trip she picked up two Malory books neither of us knew had been released. After she finished she passed them on to me and I gobbled them up because I love Anth

Boyd Anderson - youngest of the Anderson men... owns a ship, but does not captain it... sails around with it, but unbeknownst to anyone except the captain, he gets seasick... at 35ish he decides perhaps it's time to settle down & marry, and stay on land...

Katey Taylor - raised in America, in a small town... her parents have died, and she finds herself an heiress to lots of money - her mother's family had disowned her, but she had inherited at her father's death and never touched the money...

Captain of the boat hero meets Snow-White heroine and falls in lust/love watching her curves rescue a seagull. He tries to flirt, she shuts him down with a lie that she's married, though regrets it immediately because of pants feelings for his hotness.

Fast forward to after the Atlantic crossing, when hero's niece (?) gets kidnapped. Hero's part of the rescue, only he doesn't realize heroine already rescued the girl. They recognize each other. He jumps to the conclusion without asking anyone wha

After learning that Johanna Lindsey continued the Malory series in Captive of My Desire, I put them on my to-read list. I’ve finally gotten around to reading them and I have to say I’m a little disappointed.

As with my review for Captive of My Desire, this book fell a little flat for me. I know that Lindsey has described the Anderson brothers as “hotheads”, but in these books they’re not just hotheads, they’re arrogant to the point of stupid.

In my opinion, I enjoyed this book a little better than

There were a lot of things in this book that should have made it great. A kidnapping, pirates, a heroine who wasn't a doormat, a hero who wasn't a jerk. But unfortunately somewhere in the midst of all these exciting plot points JL seems to have forgotten to actually develop the romance between our two main characters. Katey and Boyd didn't actually spend very much time together in this book, and what little time they did have together was spent having big misunderstandings and then arguing about ...more

For the folks who've been reading the Malory family novels, this must be one of the last installments, the family's running out of marriageable members. The main thing that stuck with me as I read this iteration was that James and Anthony are serious jerks. This wasn't news. But it was all over this book, to the point that it detracted from my trying to enjoy the story as it unfolded... even with its implausibilities. (I agree with a previous reviewer that a young woman, even an independently we ...more
