Well, well, well...
It was uncle-Tony's turn!!!
And it was really good to see the womaniser Tony to be tamed from a Scottish heiress with quite a temper...


And this book in this series was lovely!!! Even though i still have a preference to Nicholas Eden!!!
I love this guy and the first book was my favorite...

But Tony and Nicholas were similar characters... That's why they don't like each other!!!
And of course the same happened with James... He and Tony are against to Nicholas and believe me when i

To me, there's nothing at all enjoyable about watching an irrational bitch treat her new husband like shit merely because of the wrongs she's constructed in her head. It goes on seemingly forever, and is justified as her "Scots temper". How thoroughly insulting to Scottish women. There's a difference between having a temper in justifiable circumstances and making things up to justify treating someone badly merely because you wish to. This would have been an enjoyable read if the heroine had been ...more

This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance I have been re reading this Malory Anderson series and thought it would be a good idea to review these books as I read them. Tender Rebel is the second book in the series, and what a fun book to read and I loved this one. This is one of my personal favorites to read, although I could say that for many of the books in the series. But I have such fond memories of reading this the first time so many years ago and was quite a blast reconnectin ...more

This is probably one of my favorite Malory books, although I think that Anthony is an absolute cad. He is a complete rake, and he certainly gets hoisted by his own petard when he decides to pursue innocent Rosalyn, who's on the lookout for a husband, not a lover. He's never met a woman like Rosalyn, who is Scottish to her toes, and not one to fall easily for his charms. However, he is a Malory, so she does fall, eventually. But she ends up getting the husband she came looking for.

Κανονικά θα έβαζα 4 αστεράκια,μόνο και μόνο γι' αυτό το κακομαθημένο πλάσμα που είναι η πρωταγωνίστρια.. Δεν μιλάμε απλά για Σκωτσέζα με ταμπεραμέντο,αλλά για στενοκέφαλο,πεισματάρικο ον με κοκκινόξανθο μαλλί.. Παρόλα αυτά,ο Άντονι Μάλορι παραήταν τέλειος για να του στερήσω την απόλυτη βαθμολογία!
Στο δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς,η Lindsey αφηγείται την ιστορία του Άντονι και της Ρόσλιν,ενώ ταυτόχρονα βλέπουμε το πώς εξελίσσονται κι οι ζωές των υπόλοιπων μελών της οικογένειας. Εξαιρετικά καλογραμμέν

Ah, the beginning of a huge love affair for me. This is the introduction to my "guilty pleasures'. Books that are pure escapism, a bit cheesy, a bit bawdy, but intoxicating, none the less. I fell in love with the Malory's (Tony in particular).....in fact, I want to be adopted by the Malory family. The men, are strong, and a bit unconventional, and their women, equally unconventional and refreshingly strong and independent. Johanna Lindsay is a great narrator, she entwines the reader into the plo ...more

Το πρώτο πράγμα που πρόσεξα όταν έπιασα στα χέρια μου το βιβλίο της Johanna Lindsey “Τυφλή Αφοσίωση”, το οποίο κυκλοφορεί από τις εκδόσεις Elxis, ήταν το συγκλονιστικό εξώφυλλο του. Ιδανικό για την ιστορία του βιβλίου και τους δυναμικούς του ήρωες. Ήρωες που γνώριζα καλά, πολύ πριν τον βιβλίο εκδοθεί στην Ελλάδα.

Η ιστορία του γοητευτικού και άστατου Άντονι Μάλορι είναι τόσο ιδιαίτερη όσο και ο πρωταγωνιστής της. Τον Άντονι τον πρωτογνωρίσαμε, μαζί με τα περισσότερα μέλη της οικογένειας του, στο

I was disappointed in this book, I expected more for dear uncle Tony, and I realized from these two first books that there is a pattern, at least one main character is an ass, and in this case it's the dear lady.

I still loved Anthony in here, even thought he acted mean most of the story in retaliation, still I felt him sweet and loving, even in moments when he was giving her a lesson he could help but be tender and devoted to her.

Roslyn in my eyes was a self-centered bitch, I know that I sound m

Στο δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς, τα ερωτικά σκήπτρα της περνάνε στον Άντονι Μάλορι, τον οποίο και γνωρίσαμε μέσα από το "Αγαπάς μόνο μια φορά". Ο Άντονι έχει όλα εκείνα τα στοιχεία που -θεωρητικά- τον καθιστούν ακατάλληλο για μια γυναίκα, όμως παρά του ότι είναι απατεώνας, η γοητεία του είναι κάτι στο οποίο δύσκολα μπορείς να αντισταθείς. Εκτός κι αν είσαι η Ρόσλιν Τσάντγουικ, μια δυναμική Σκοτσέζα που δεν μασάει τα λόγια της, και που προκειμένου να μην παντρευτεί τον υποχθόνιο ξάδερφό της αλλά κα ...more

Why was she always so self-centered, never considering anyone's feelings but her own?

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

RATING: Welp!....It was a great book for something written in 1988. However, the hero is a dick and the heroine is a bitch. The communication issues were petty AS HECK! I just feel like the plot was hellishly lazy and rather bored me at times and dragged on. The characters were not likeable. They were just insanely rich and so they had the time to listen to no one and act selfish as freak. The beginning was so promising! I rather enjoyed her book "The magic of you" ( i think it's called that) H ...more

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).

Ah, a total guilty pleasure, this one. I first read it when I was around twelve (I do a joint review with my inner child here) and it's still one of those books that I can open and lose myself in the sheer crack-tastic awesomeness that was late-80's, early-90's Lindsey.

A pretty cute romance, about a Scottish heiress who flees to London to escape marrying her despicable cousin, and falls under the spell of a confirmed rake. I liked how Lindsey keeps you guessing at what obstacles will keep these two apart; for example, you might think that when the heroine mistakes the hero's nephew for his son, this would cause a rift for a large portion of the plot, but instead the misunderstanding gets cleared up almost right away.

Roslynn has a lot of spunk, though for such

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

Hated this.
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 might make me re-read it by accident.

I love Johanna Lindsey!! Her books always make me smile, cry, laugh and just really enjoy my time reading. This is book number 2 in the Malory novels and once again Johanna does a great job in making you love the Malory men and hate them at the same time.

This is the story of Anthony Malory and Lady Roslyn Chadwick. Roslyn needs to marry in a rush so that her cousin doesn't marry her and steal the Chadwick fortune. Roslyn does not have Anthony Malory on her list of possible candidates but when he

Blech!the most god awful sex scene in existence


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

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.

I am now addicted to Johanna Lindsey's books. I'm sorry it took me so long to discover this series.

This was delightful. Lindsey's books are quite humorous (I sure hope that was her intention) and the characters are colorful and interesting. This book is no exception. I truly enjoyed this.

The one negative I can point to is that the narrator's Scottish accent sounds like an Irish brogue and was a bit distracting. But I've already downloaded Book 3 in this series.

Regina gibi bir kadın karakterden sonra böyle aptal ve uyuz bir kadın karakteri nasıl yazmayı başarsın yazarcım çok merak ediyorum.

Bir insanin her hareketi mi uyuz olur.Cidden Roslynn Aşk Affetmezdeki karakterden sonra en nefret ettiğim kadın karakterler listesinde zirvedesin.Malory ailesi olmasa çekilmez bu kitap o kadar yani.

4 puanı da Malory kardeşler için veriyorum.Yoksa iki ya da üç puan verirdim.-_-
