2014, Stormy Persuasion

stormy-persuasion-9781476714295_hr#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey returns to the dazzlingly passionate world of the Malorys, an aristocratic family of rakehell adventurers and spirited ladies, in a thrilling new tale of unbridled desires.

Judith and Jacqueline Malory are not simply cousins; they are inseparable best friends. Refusing to miss Jacqueline’s come-out in Connecticut, Judy convinces her parents, James and Georgina, to let her delay her London debut by a few weeks so she can accompany her cousin. Neither girl intends to fall in love during her first Season. But Judy’s plans are overturned when aboard ship she comes face-to-face with the ghost who has been haunting her dreams.

Unknown to the Malorys, deckhand Nathan Tremayne is a smuggler with a noose around his neck. Determined to carry out a covert mission in America that could gain him a pardon, Nathan senses that Judith is trouble. Somehow the minx knows his secret—and now she’s blackmailing him into doing her bidding—teaching her how to climb the rigging and how to kiss. While passions can soar on the high seas, Nathan knows this aristocratic beauty is merely amusing herself with a scoundrel like him.

When the unthinkable happens in Connecticut and the elder Malorys’ hands are tied, Nathan takes command of a dire situation. Captaining his own ship, he turns the tables on Judy and steers them into uncharted waters, where a lady might just throw caution to the wind and give her heart to a scoundrel.

  1. Johanna, the new book looks intriguing and I love the cover! I’ve read all the Mallory books. If you’d like me to review this one for Historical Romance Review (, I’d be happy to do it!

    • Hello, Regan, this website is fanbased. It is not her official website, so she wouldn’t respond here of course.

      • Thanks for letting me know. I’ve never been able to find a contact for her, unfortunately. I am doing a tribute post for Bertrice Small and wanted to ask Johanna for a quote but I could see no way to reach her.

  5. Do you think Johanna will write a book about Jacqueline Malory ?

    • I hope so and will be disappointed if she doesn’t. James, her father, is the original star and she is so much like him. After reading Stormy Persuasion, I thought she fell in love with the man she called the “Bastard” who captured her. Am really curious as to where that was going to lead.ggl

  6. I have read all of the Mallory collection and have loved every single one…Stormy Persuasion was also fantastic. Very romantic and a great continuation of Ms. Lindseys writings. This story was so well put together and I just loved it. I have purchased pretty near all of her Historical writing novels and love that they keep on coming. Thank you for your gift of writing.
