A Loving Scoundrel: Malory Family Series by Johanna Lindsey

THE MALORYS ARE BACK!
Johanna Lindsey brings to glorious life her beloved aristocratic family of adventurous rogues and spirited ladies as the Malorys confront the shocking news that Jeremy, the rakehell son of gentleman pirate James Malory, has fallen in love.
When Jeremy Malory hires Danny, a young woman who grew up on London's streets disguised as a boy, as his upstairs maid, he secretly intends to make her his mistress. But Danny surprises him with her dreams of becoming a refined lady and a gentleman's wife. As she transforms from urchin to elegant beauty before Jeremy's eyes, she unwittingly captivates the charming scoundrel. Now high society tongues are wagging: Who is this mysterious newcomer, and what is the truth about her past? No matter that a life-long adversary will go to any lengths to ensure Danny's downfall, Jeremy, who vowed never to succumb to matrimony, finds his resolve weakening as he pursues a woman whose strong, passionate nature rivals his own and promises the kind of challenge a Malory man can't resist.

Johanna Lindsey, as always, provides us with a wonderful story and characters you can love. The Mallory family has been entertaining me for years now. I have every book every written by her and reread them frequently. Hers are the only books I will not lend out for fear of them not being returned!

A Loving Scoundrel by Johanna Lindsey is another marvelous Malory novel. Jeremy Malory sets up a trap to catch a thief. He needs this thief to help a friend retrieve jewels lost in a fixed card game. He gets more then he bargained for when he enlists Danny in his scheme. Danny had no memory of her life before she joined the street gang at the age of 5. She had disguised herself as a boy to fit in. By helping Jeremy she is kicked out of her gang. Danny figures Jeremy owes her. So, she strikes a bargain with him. Danny will work as his upstairs maid if he will help her refine herself. What comes to pass is a battle of wills. Jeremy to bed her and Danny to stay out of his bed. When trouble from her past comes to harm Danny, Jeremy will do anything to protect her. This is a wonderful continuation of the Malory clan, the witty conversations, smoldering passions and the interfering family. You can not go wrong with a Johanna Lindsey novel.

It seems like I've been waiting forever for Jeremy Mallory's story, and now that I've just finished it, I can honestly say it was worth the wait. I just hated to see it end. After a few hectic months, I took the day off my own writing to read, and what a wonderful choice I made. I loved every single page. Jeremy is sexy and adorable and charming and all grown up, yet still so true to the character we already knew and loved. And better still, we get to revisit James and Anthony - and even Warren and Drew! (I wonder if Drew will get a book soon - I hope so.) Also, the heroine, Danny, is wonderful - very unique and strong and a pleasure to read. Grab this one, you won't be sorry.

One of her best books, and I have them all! If you loved James and Anthony Malory's exploits, and those of their niece Reggie, you will LOVE this book.

This book was true to the Malory name, that Johanna Lindsey has created. I highly recommend this book and any others by her.

One of the better books that she has written in some time, this is a definate return to the Johanna Lindsey that some of us have been wanting to see. In this wonderful next book in the Malory series, Jeremy is joined with many of the other characters that we have come to know and love. The story is funny, warm, and has all the qualities that make a Lindsey novel what we love!

Jeremy Malory helps his friend Percy Alden recover family heirloom rings he lost when gambling under the influence. The distraught Percy has avoided his beloved mother for he knows how upset she would be if she sees his ringless fingers. Heddings who won the rings has refused to sell them back to Percy, which is why they are in a dump of a tavern in London¿s worst slum............................ They capture fifteen year old Danny, who grew up on the means streets as a pickpocket. They quickly learn the tall male teen is a beautiful female urchin Dani. They enlist her help giving her no option besides the law; Dani steals back the jewels from Heddings. However, by assisting a member of the Ton, she has violated the rules of the street felons and is exiled. Honor forces Jeremy to hire Dani as a servant. He tutors her to act like a lady and soon begins falling in love with Dani. She has loved him from the first moment she saw his ¿pretty¿ face. However, Dani knows that an aristocrat would never marry the likes of her and anything less would shatter her heart.................... The return of the Malory mob is a reason for rejoicing for fans of the series. The exciting story line is at its best when it furbishes a regency equivalent to My Fair Lady starring two fine protagonists. When the terrific tale twists into too easily resolving the class distinction issue, readers still obtain a wonderful subplot, but also will wonder what if Johanna Lindsey left the concern at its most difficult. Still Malory fans will appreciate this delightful addition to one of the author¿s best ongoing sagas.................. Harriet Klausner

Found on the web - With the humor, lovable characters, and romantic intensity that have distinguished Johanna Lindsey's six previous 'Malory novels and made them her strongest bestsellers, 'A Loving Scoundrel delivers a passionate love story and a not-to-be-missed reunion with the Malorys-a family of dashing rogues, rakehell adventurers, and spirited ladies. When Dani, a young woman who grew up on the streets of London as a pickpocket, is banished from her gang because she helped Jeremy Malory steal back the jewels his friend lost in a card game, Dani demands that Jeremy give her a job. Intrigued, Jeremy hires Dani as his upstairs maid, although he wants her as his mistress. Dani blossoms into a lady under the tutelage of Jeremy and his housekeeper but Dani refuses to be anything more than a servant to Jeremy because she knows he is not the marrying kind. When Dani attends a ball with Jeremy people remark on how familiar Dani looks, which raises the question of her true identity and threatens not only her chances of capturing Jeremy's heart, but her very life.

Very good book;I enjoyed finally getting to read about the Mallorys again. I cannot wait till the next one comes out. I am a huge fan and am only sorry she doesn't write more. I encourage you to read her books if you would like to get lost in a moment; her books bring the characters to life. She writes with much passion and has great characters.

I have read all the Mallory's stories and the last couple I have not been pleased with. However Jeremey's story was an excellent read and it went with the other Mallory stories. I read the book twice in to days I absolutly love it. I have waited for years for the book ever sence Jeremy was introduce and the wait for this book was well worth it.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other ones in this series. As a matter of fact I haven't totally enjoyed a book by JL in quite some time. Her last few books have been rather dull. This one does have a little bit of bite to it but not enough for me to recommend it. Of course everyone has there own opinion, and this is mine.
