Books by Johanna Lindsey

A
Prisoner of My Desire

A Retro Review originally published on June 24, 1998 Now here's a book you can't judge by its cover, or rather, by its title. Yes, it's about desire, more like ire and desire. . . The story starts with a beating, the one of a mother before the eyes of her daughter; the ultimate test of power of ...

Say You Love Me

A Retro Review originally published on November 1, 1996 If you're looking for a great Johanna Lindsey to read, look no farther. . .than your keeper shelf and re-read one of her older releases. Because Say You Love Me is not a keeper and will not be joining those other treasured Lindsey's in your c ...

Home for the Holidays

A Retro Review originally published on November 26, 2000 Are you looking for some cozy, feel-good holiday reading?

Stormy Persuasion

I was nervous going in to this read. I have been the biggest Johanna Lindsey fan since I first started reading romance, but unfortunately, a lot of her newer books haven’t lived up to some of my classic favorites. Stormy Persuasion is the eleventh book in the Malory-Anderson series and, while it ...

One Heart to Win

I really thought for the first 75 pages of this book that I had a D book on my hands. I put down the book several times before I steeled myself to read it to the bitter end. I am glad that I persevered because I discovered a nice little story waiting for me among the mistakes. Tif ...

Captive of My Desires

Johanna Lindsey is one author I can usually enjoy if I don’t think much about all the unlikelihoods and but-what-abouts. Expecting her books to be humorous if not a bit trite, I guess you could say that I put myself in a Lindsey frame of mind and have fun riding the surface of the story. With ...

Marriage Most Scandalous

With over forty novels published, I expected smooth, experienced writing from Johanna Lindsey. A Marriage Most Scandalous has great writing but also many flaws and a hero and heroine who increasingly are not worthy of any admiration or respect. After Sebastian Townsend sleeps with a woman who t ...

A Man to Call My Own

Johanna Lindsey's newest, and her first for Simon & Schuster after a very lengthy association with Avon, is a witty western romance that made me smile as I turned the pages. The heroine is likable, and the pretending-to-be-plain premise fun, which makes up for a plot that isn't particularly real ...

D
The Pursuit

There are lots of reasons why we love men. And there are lots of reasons that sometimes we don't. Johanna Lindsey's new book is a virtual litany of the latter. The Pursuit features page after page of men fighting men, men making snap judgments, men delivering ultimatums, men fighting men, men ...

Heart of a Warrior

Heart of a Warrior is the long-awaited sequel to Warrior’s Woman and Keeper of the Heart. Considering that KOTH was published nearly a decade ago, it is amazing how seamlessly this book picks up the narrative, and while it stands alone, it was also a delight to catch up with some favorite characte ...
