Soon Gabrielle is in London and in the
capable hands of James’ wife, Georgina. Georgina’s brother
Drew Anderson, a sea captain with no desire to marry, is in
London to visit his sister. Drew finds himself playing
escort to Georgina and Gabrielle as they look for a husband
for Gabrielle at soirees and balls. With a slip of the
tongue, Drew plunges Gabrielle into scandal. Seeking revenge,
Gabrielle takes Drew captive and takes over his ship. In
close quarters at sea, it becomes impossible to douse the
passion that threatens to burn out of control.
I have adored every book in the Malory
series. I would have paid any price to see James again.
Knowing he had a role in Captive of My Desires
made me wiggle with delight. I knew from previous Mallory
novels that Drew would make an excellent hero. I also knew
that Drew’s heroine, whoever she might be, would deliver his
much-deserved comeuppance. And oh how Gabrielle delivered!
Captive of My Desires is
another superlative novel by the prolific Johanna Lindsey.
Dashing and adventurous heroes, high-spirited and brave
heroines, fiendish villains and scorching passion are what Ms.
Lindsey is famous for giving her readers. Captive of My
Desires is Johanna Lindsey at her best!
