Little does Katey realize that in having caught the attention of Boyd Anderson - and in meeting up with the Malorys - she's about to experience more excitement than the typical young lady encounters on a grand tour, and her life will never be dull again. For a multitude of surprises await Katey, from the startling truth about her mother's early life. . . to the lengths a man will go to win the affections of a lady who has every reason to despise him - but who can't resist the seductive, impassioned love he has to offer her.

Not Lindsey's best, disappointing Mallory novel.
Johanna Lindsey has written some really good romance novels a la "Johnny Depp's Pirates of the Carribean". You know the story is far fetched, the characters are cartoon like in the fact that her hero can take on a half dozen men without a scratch and the heroine is always the most stunning beauty, but she is the last to know that. Nevertheless, I have loved most of her books as the characters were likeable and the rogues always fell head over heels in love and became model husbands. With regards to the Anderson family, my favorite story of course is that of Georgina and James in Gentle Rogue (coming on audiobooks this month). I also thought she found an excellent match for Drew in Gabi in Captive of My Desires and that Amy was what Warren needed to cure his broken heart in The Magic of You. This book however is a huge disappointment. Boyd, sweet gentle Boyd deserved better than a whiny, vindictive, lying woman such as Katie. I listened to the audio and turned it off 2.5 hrs before the story was over as I could no longer stomach this idiot woman. One moment she is having sex with Boyd and the next, she is furious with him. How many times is a person supposed to apologize before you give him a break. Her constant humiliation to him in public made her rude, lacking class and tact in my opinion. She was just very unsympathetic for me to root for her. If you want to read a good Lindsey book, grab "A Loving Scoundrel"; "Captive of My Desires"; "The Magic of You"; "A Gentle Rogue"; or "Marriage Most Scandalous". Hopefully audible will have them all on their list soon. Stay away from "A man to call my own"; "the Devil who Tamed Her'; "Home For the Holidays"; and "No Choice But Seduction". They are not Lindsey's best work.
