This is still one of my favourite books. James Malory is a great leading man and while Georgina is a bit naive sometimes (I guess she could be allowed her being an innocent and all) she is spunky and a good match for James. I love reading their conversations and found myself wanting to get back to story often -even though I know what's going to happen.
As this book was a reread for me I noticed this time around that there was a fair amount of recapping which seemed a bit tedious having just read the previous books. Also, as this is the third book in the series.. if you hadn't read the other two, those recaps would spoil those stories instead of just dropping hints that make you want to read them. So because of that I docked half a star.
This series has a wonderful bunch of characters. Jeremy and Georgina's are delightful and even now I look forward to rereading their stories. If you have never read this series, I would recommend that you do!
This is my favourite JL book. For me, it is the perfect romance, it has everything: love, passion, laughs, adventure. The characters and storyline are perfect: the ex-pirate rogue - that's gentleman pirate, pardon me James :) - , British lord on the side, handsome, sarcastic, who has sworn never to get married and who thinks no woman will be more to him than a mistress, meets his equal and downfall in an adventurous American girl, who hates all things English and aristocratic, as she is forced to impersonate his cabin boy in order to get home to America. They fight, they laugh, they make love, but - of course - they cannot be together since he's not ready yet to commit himself and she knows this.
The situation she is put in as his cabin boy (of course he knows she's a woman, but there are so many possibilities to this seduction game that he cannot resist), as she slowly grows attracted to him and doesn't even know it yet, generate endless laughs. Georgina has a funny way of talking to herself (or to her conscience), like Megan in Man of my Dreams, which allows you to know her for the wonderful funny and smart girl that she is and makes you understand why James falls for her. As for the other way around, what girl wouldn't fall in love with a handsome pirate who happens to make you feel like you're in heaven, makes you laugh and gives you everything you want?
After she leaves him just as he was about to propose to her to be his mistress ("Good God, James, you were going to go *that* far?Read more ›
I usually don't like "Romance on the High Seas" books, but James and Georgie's passion is real and just as hot on dry land. Speaking of dry land, the introduction of Georgie's five single American brothers is fantastic. Note to Ms. Lindsey: Make the Anderson brothers your next heros.
Overall a very steamy romance. I read it in one night because I couldn't find a suitable stopping point. Each page is better than the last. I melt for James Mallory and I'm sure you will too!!!
I decided to finish reading the whole series before i write the reviews so i can compare it all. Now this book (and Love Only Once) is my favorite in the Malory series. James have always intrigued me eversince I read about him in Love Only Once. He was a handsome care-free rebel & a pirate gentleman! In the 2nd book, Tender Rebel, my intrigued even heightened when he brought home a son, Jeremy, and when James got charmed by a girl pretending to be a lad who he met at a seaside bar. Once again, I wasn't disppointed when I read his story. James and Georgina's love story was not only sweet & charming, it was most definitely the most amusing of all the Malory book series. The seatrip, the schemes & pretentious, the meeting of Georgina's brother's was utterly hilarious. James surely got a dose of his own medicine. What a riot! You will love James more in this book... and you too will be charmed by Georgina. They are both a lovely pair.
Note: I have notice that all books in this Malory series (except for the first one) contains lots of repetitive informations. There were times I had to skip parts wherein a Malory or two will start discussing the story or happenings of the previous books, sorta like a short summarization for those who have not read it. For readers like me who have read the series in sequence, It's kindda useless info. and i won't lose anything to skip it... At first, this style of writing didn't seem to bother me but when I got to the third book of the series, the summarization of the first two books was getting to me (but i still rated this book a 5 stars bec.Read more ›
