I have been waiting forever, like many other Malory family fans for Jeremy Malory's story. I was so surprised, and delighted to have stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. I read many of the reviews and was a little disappointed because though most liked it, most had something negative to say about it. I thought that it was great. I thought it was funny, very sexy, and I highly recommend it. I thought that Danny was the perfect match for the charming Jeremy. And it was great how Mrs. Lindsey revisited the history of the Malory family, and most of its members to give new readers a taste but not too much to cause boredom for the old. Yet to be a little hypocritical, I do wish that it had contained more love scenes, instead of glossing over most. There have been some comments about Jeremy taking advantage of the fact that Danny was drunk. It's a historical romance novel. The female lead is usually seduced during some state of vulnerability or extreme circumstance to justify their fall from virginal grace and show their difference from the females of loose morals. If it had been a modern romance novel then I agree it would have been a little inappropriate but in a age where teenage girls have a season to search out a husband and are expect to do nothing but shop and beautify themselves all day, I think the seduction should be view in a different light. In the end, I thought the book was great and I give it two thumbs, with my sincerest thank you to Mrs. Lindsey.

I have over the years enjoyed the Lindsey series about the Malory clan. In this book we again meet the Malory's with young Jeremey Malory taking top billing. He is a 25 year old bachelor who is not looking for love. In comes Danny a young pickpocket who has been a "boy" for the past fifteen years so she will not be forced into the worlds oldest profession. Through twists and turns Lindsey tells their tale, with a lot of fun and laughter along the way. Danny is a fun character and of course so is Jeremy. The supporting cast of Malory's makes the story a trip down memory lane because it reminded me of the other books I read in the Malory saga. I would recomend this book to any one who enjoys Lindsey and her style of writing. I read the whole book in one sitting and couldn't put it down. Fun, fear, and laughter all in one book. Great read. The only negative thing I can think of is there is always the hook of the woman being of the nobility which I find contrived. If I am realistic though isn't the whole thing contrived and I am reading these books to enjoy not analys.

A Loving Scoundrel is Jeremy Mallory's story. Finally and well done are all I can say. I read it in one night, couldn't put it down. Jeremy's immediate recognition of Danny as a girl is funny and reminecent of James' discovery of George's deception in Gentle Rogue. I loved Jeremy's wit and Danny's confusion at her reactions to Jeremy. Having been disguised as a male for the last 15 years, she now thinks like one and it definitely takes some getting used to...being a female and all those female feelings. It was great fun to see some of my favorite charaters, James and Anthony Mallory, Regan Eden. This Mallory story is wonderful and fits perfectly with Jeremy. Now the next one we need is Drew Anderson. Yum!~! Johanna, I hope that's the next one you write. Congratulations on a great read.

This was such a wonderful book!! Johanna Lindsey pulls out all the stops with the story of Jeremy, James Malory's(Gentle Rogue), rogue son. Jeremy is such a great addition to this line of men. Such an Alpha male!! He is so protective of Danny and it is so funny to watch him get jealous and go through all the emotions that all men in love go through even though he didnt want to admit it!!! It was so wonderful in the end with Danny finding out who she really is! This book is so good, as soon as I finished it, I wanted to read it again!!!! Anyone who reads this book wont forget it!!! i will be adding it to my keeper shelf along with the rest of the Malory stories!!

Jeremy Malory's book is finally here! As an avid fan of Ms. Lindsey's work, I've been disappointed in her more recent work, but this book lives up to every expectation. Jeremy Malory has all the charm of Anthony and James but has an added depth and compassion which work to make him a very appealing character. Johanna Lindsey does an excellent job of creating Jeremy's perfect mate. Danny, as a pickpocket who grew up in the London slums, fits Jeremy and his own childhood to perfection. It's such a treat to read a book about two people with such a capacity to love! It is my favorite book of Ms. Lindsey's since Tender Rebel and Gentle Rogue!

I absolutely adored this story! My favorite romance novels are series about families, and the Malory story line is no exception-in fact, it is my favorite romance series. I hadn't heard that a new Malory story was on the shelves, so I was VERY pleasantly surprised to find it the other day. This has been one of my favorite stories to date. I thought Ms. Lindsey developed both the well-known and new characters beautifully, especially Danny-a spunky heroine from the wrong side of the tracks who brings a lot of humor into the story. I highly recomend reading this book.

Johanna Lindsey is a wonderful author and I love the Malory series. Jeremy is a 25 year old bachelor not looking to settle down when he plots to catch a thief to help his friend Percy retrieve family heirlooms. He catches Danny, who has been a "boy" for the last 15 years in a gang of thieves. When Danny is ousted from the gang for breaking the rules she makes Jeremy hire her feeling he owes her a job. The chemistry between Jeremy and Danny makes it difficult to put the book down. This book is a great addition to the Malory series!

I love the Malory's!!! I couldn't believe this book was out. I immediately bought the book and read it in 4 hours. I could not put it down. Even though you know the Oliver Twist tell. I like how Lindsey put a little Anastasia in it as well. It was nice to catch up on all the Malory's and Danny was a lovely character. The only negative I have is the repeat factory... Lindsey kept repeating how beautiful Danny and Jeremy were... But this is a minor complaint. I LOVED THIS BOOK!*****

I am a huge fan of Johanna Lindsey. I have a collection of her books. the Malory family is quite my favorite. Now I'm reading "Man of My dreams" which I read about 10 or 15 times. Its the same with all her books.

I have read countless amounts of Johanna Lindsey's books and I must say this is one my favorites. All the characters are likable and I love the way she incorporates the whole Malory clan back into this story. Great Job.
