I think I started reading Johanna Lindsey romances 25 years ago. They are full of swash-buckling, handsome roguish men and strong, independent women. The latest in the Malory series is Stormy Persuasion and is the continuation of a long-standing family. Patriarch, James Malory sets sail for America to honor a promise to his in-laws to have his daughter Jacqueline’s come-out in America rather than London. Traveling with her is her best friend and cousin Judith. Also, traveling with them is deckhand, Nathan Tremayne, a smuggler turned good to gain a pardon, a long-lost cousin and his stepsister. Of course, nothing is as it seems and soon there is dire trouble and a kidnapping.
This is a fun, easy read. The romance is sweet rather than the “hot” that has been published recently. So delve into the sensual thrill of a Malory novel and enjoy the sail.
