There is no family quite like the Malorys, and with her signature sense of humor and a book filled with all those Malorys, Lindsey fans will be overjoyed. There's drama and passion, but most of all the love and loyalty of family that turns any Malory book into a rare read.

A sudden inheritance allows lively Kat Tyler to leave Connecticut to explore the world on Boyd Anderson's ship. Though Boyd is enthralled at first sight, Kate's charade as a married woman keeps him at bay. However, an unusual set of circumstances bring them together. James Malory's daughter is kidnapped, and Kate finds the girl locked in a room at an inn.

Kate is escorting her home when Boyd apprehends Kate, believing she
is the kidnapper. It takes awhile to straighten out the situation, and in the meantime Kate and Boyd form a friendship that grows into love. Boyd will help Kate find her long-lost family, but neither expects the surprises it will bring. (Pocket, Jul., 380 pp., $23.95)

No Choice But Seduction

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 23, 2010 - 6:04pm.

When Sir Anthony Malory's daughter is abducted, the kidnapper mistakenly sends the ransom note to the home of Sir Anthony's brother, James. With James and his wife in the Caribbean, the demands are received by their houseguest, Boyd Anderson. Searching for the girl with Sir Anthony, the sea captain fully intends to make the foolhardy villain pay. But he hardly expects to find the culprit is Katey Tyler, the woman who caught his eye months ago while embarking on a world tour. Katey denies the charges, but Boyd will not let himself fall for her lies again.

This was an interesting book. I thought the romance between Katey and Boyd could have had more time to develop. As usual in this series, the author brings back the Malory clan and this time actually gives them something to do with a surprise twist in the story. My rating: 4 Stars.
