Love Only Once (Malory Family Series #1) by Johanna Lindsey

The exquisite niece of Lord Edward and Lady Charlotte Malory, Regina Ashton is outraged over her abduction by the arrogant, devilishly handsome Nicholas Eden—and is determined to make the rogue pay . . . with his heart.

A golden-haired seducer, Nicholas has been hardened by a painful secret in his past. And now that he has besmirched Reggie's good name, the hot-tempered lady has vowed to wed him. Her fiery beauty stirs Nicholas as no woman ever has—and the rake arouses Reggie's passion to an unendurable level. Such uncontrolled desires can lead only to dangerous misunderstandings . . . and, perhaps, to a love that can live only once in a lifetime.

This book did an excellent job at setting the stage for all 10 books in the series! I read through all of them in a month or so, just couldn't get enough of the Malory's! Johanna Lindsey introduces us to the Malory family very thoroughly without being boring. Since each Malory is in all of the books, it's good to know the timeline of events and where things pick up from. The only new characters are the husbands and wives each Malory marries into their family. Love Only Once introduces us to Lady Regina who is like a Tom Boy on the side with a lady's upbringing. She is mischievous and is adored immensely by all of her uncles. (pretty much she gets what she wants, but it's always for their benefit (and hers)) I was never bored, nor did it ever seem slow. There is adventure, sexual tensions, excitement, and love and much more in this series. I hope you'll enjoy it, I recommend taking the series in order!

I love Regan!! She's pretty, smart, sassy, and yet, she's all heart too. Nicholas is handsome and sexy, a great character!! (Although James and Tony are better!!) Funny and romantic. A Must Read!!! I can't wait until Jeremy's story comes out! 'Hell's bells, isn't it about time?!'

Liked this book. Regina was a strong female , something I like in books. Simpering girls who need rescued at every turn are boring. I felt Nicolas was far too over the top with his disdain for marriage. His problems ,(once confronted) were solved rather quickly. Still it was a good read.

I got kind of bored of it half way also. But, its the beginning of a series, it's best to read the first one anyway so you'll get a better understanding of the characters in ther rest of the series.

I can't say enough about this book, except that if you decide to read it, be prepared not to be able to put it down. Regina is sweet, hot-tempered, and spirited, and you will admire her. As for Nicholas, you might hate him at first, but you will come to love him because Lindsey shows us that deep down he is vulnerable and terrified of rejection. A great book and terrific beginning to this series. I can't wait to read the stories of the other Malory characters!

Top read! Four loveable uncles, a beautiful and charming niece, and humorous rakehell with a secret. I laughed so much. Worth the read.

Johanna Lindsey has created a wonderful love story. This is the story of Regina Ashton, beloved niece of the 4 Mallory brothers and Nicholas Eden, a Viscount with a dark secret. Nicholas mistakenly kidnaps Regina and is forced to marry her due to the scandal he created. This book is comical, sweet and filled with love. I have the whole series and have re-read them many times over. I highly recommend this book.

I love how Johanna Lindsey weaves her multi stories together. She brings such layers and attitude to life within the her writing. I can believe in these characters and their life, even in the outrageous story line. The Malory's and Anderson's have become one of my favorite fictional families.

This cute historical romance is the start to a wonderful series involving the Malory family. Although the beginning is a slow read, the plot warms considerably. Regina is a lovable firecracker of a woman and Nicholas is the playboy turned family man we love to hate. We also learn a little bit of the Malory family background. Great start to a wonderful series.
