Just what I was thinking for the second part of the book. I am so frustrated with this book! I am so glad this is the fourth Malory book I've read because otherwise I might have given up. How can a wonderful author like Johanna Lindsey take to so lovable character and a great villain and screw up the romance?
I love the Malory family as always and I was bouncing up and down in the first part. Anthony is one hot...more
Roslyn is one of the most Unlikeable Romance Heroines Ever.
I would have given this a 4 stars but the heroine Roslyn Chadwick was such a shrew that towards the last third of the book end I wanted either Anthony Malory or her cousin Geordie to give her a good Spanking. The premise of her putting stupid conditions on a marriage and then over reacting at the slightest hint of indrescretion was totally unbelievable and extremely tiresome as the book went on. She was childish and her spending the mon...more

Her loins were aching, an inferno of moist heat, and when she felt something touching there for the first time, her body instinctively closed around it, hungering for the pressure in that burning region. And it managed to fill her, a glorious, welcoming fullness that she pushed against, locking her legs around him so she wouldn't lose it, finally feeling she had gained a measure of control. She wouldn't let go, and the pressure built in her, grew, u...more
Possibly my least favorite of the Malory series.
The heroine is so incredibly annoying that I cannot stop rolling my eyes.
The plot is stale, the dialogue boring -- I had such a hard time getting through this, and this review is a reminder to myself to never read it again as the completely forgettable storyline makes me re-read it by accident.
Ceritanya bagus, tapi kenapa Roslynn nya harus keras kepala banget? Ya ampun, adegan yang paling tidak saya suka itu saat Anthony yang sudah bersungguh2 ingin menjadikan Roslynn istri sahnya dan tidak hanya di atas kertas, tapi Roslynn malah menolaknya. Ya ampun, jelas2 dari awal...more
awalnya suka si,cuma dia terlalu merendahkan diri nya sendiri dan suaminy Anthony.kalau aja dia mau lebih percaya dgn kata2 suaminya dan gak gengsi gede2an ,maka gak akan ada konflik berkepanjangan yg buat gw sdikit bosen bacanya.
tapi terhibur dgn adu mulut James - Anthony ,Anthony - Nicholas ^^
overall si bagus cuma konflik berkepanjang agak bosenin.hehe.
tp slalu ending nya buat gw yg tadinya rencanya mau kasi bintang 3 jadi ber...more

I did think that her insistence that Anthony get a (view spoiler)[mistress (hide spoiler)] was just plain dumb. And then get mad at him for close to a month? That annoyed me so much. It’s what she wanted in the first place! It seems she had forgotten why they w...more
Ini adalah novel Malory Family yang paling saya suka. Mungkin karena saya jatuh cinta kepada sosok Anthony Malory. Hahaha! Penulisnya menggambarkan Anthony sebagai sosok yang sangat tampan, berambut hitam, tinggi, kulitnya tidak putih pucat (bule). Ia juga orang yang tidak bisa serius dan suka bercanda, menurut saya, apalagi kalau dengan James.
Hal lain yang saya suka dari novel ini juga karena besar cerita, mun...more
Some Minor Spoilers...
Okay, where to start? I loved the beginning of this book and I loved returning to the Malory family. I also have an intense love for Anthony! I love him so much! He seems like a dream! Throughout the novel, he had me grinning like a dork...and swooning! But, uhmmm I really disliked Roslynn. Oh man...I liked her in the beginning because she seemed like such a strong female who fought for what she wanted...but that ended after the first 50 pages. She was such a bi...more
The premise sounds interesting enough for a historical romance, so I'm not sure how the writing bungled it so badly. I skimmed through a few reviews before beginning and was prepared to dislike Roslynn. Imagine my surprise when, a third through the book, I was so disgus...more

Tapi ada yang salah dengan buku ini karna sialnya Tony malah jatuh cinta dengan seorang wanita Skotland bernama Roslynn yang terkenal bertemperamen dan keras kepala, sifat yang hampir sama dengan Tony yg sama keras kepalanya. Makanya buku ini tebal karna bercerita tentang sulitnya mendamaikan perang dingin mereka :D yang sepertinya harus dibantu pihak ketiga biar mereka...more
La prima vedere pare o carte tipica historical romance,dar tot farmecul este det de personajele minunate pe care Lindsey le-a creat.Sunt pline de farmec si de umor,iar situatiile in care-i surprindem sunt pline de suspans.Nici actiunea nu lipseste,pentru ca avem parte de rapiri.Eroina noastra scape singura din toate aceste incercari,dar reuseste sa ma calce pe nervi atunci cand nu are incredere in Anthony.
Acord partu stele,si abia astept sa cite...more

Anthony: This is no time for offended modesty... You're the distraction.
Roslynn: Och, well, in that case.
Anthony: That's quite low enough, my dear...
Roslynn: I was only trying to help,
Anthony: Commendable, but we want the chap to ogle you, not bust his breeches.”
