The saga of the Malory/Anderson family continues. Boyd Anderson meets a young lady who is taking passage on his ship from America to London. He's immediately attracted and so is she, but she has a plan to see the world before settling down into marriage. Their paths cross again when she rescues his young niece from some kidnappers, but unfortunately, he thinks she's the kidnapper! To make up for his rough treatment of her during this caper, he offers her the use of his ship for her world tour. He also decides to try to seduce her into cutting that tour short and marrying him.
Lindsey's heroes, even the Victorian ones, are getting less high-handed and her heroines are getting more independent, which is probably largely a function of the zeitgeist, but very welcome. However, and of course, the dude gets his way in the end and Katey's world tour is cut short in favor of marriage and family. Meh. ( )

I've seen other's call this "Pride and Prejudice" meets "Pirates of the Caribbean" and that is a pretty apt description. This earns a star just for being a Malory book. ( )

Okay, I'm cheating here, and I don't like them all equally, but I do love the Mallory's. They're all funny. I especially liked "Love Only Once" (the first book), "Gentle Rogue" (my favorite), and "The Magic of You" (where the heroine chases the hero shamelessly). ( )

Gabrielle Brooks leaves the safety of England in search of her missing father. Her ship is attacked by pirates and she finds herself captive on their Caribbean island; only later to learn that her very own father is one their leaders. What a surprise! She spends 3 years with him treasure hunting and enjoying a very exciting, sun-filled life. The pirates she meets along the way are a hoot.

There are few marriageable men around the islands so Gabrielle reluctantly ends up back in London to husband hunt. She is sponsored by an old acquaintance of her father, James Mallory. Unfortunately, Drew Anderson, a pirate hating, marriage avoiding, sea captain and exasperating rogue, spoils her chances with the ton by basically calling her pirate trash. Drew is unremorseful which is where the bulk of the story begins.

Gabrielle, who had originally set her sites on Drew as a potential husband, takes revenge by hijacking his ship and holding him captive. Then comes the typical swash buckling pirate action with battles and damaging storms. Gabrielle is bent on rescuing her father from the evil Pierre Lacross. Drew is bent on getting his ship back. Even the Mallory’s are in on the action, bent on rescuing Drew from so-called pirates.

The plot does get a bit silly when everything starts to converge toward the end. It’s a mess. There is plenty of witty banter between Drew and Gabrielle, but the love story was not at all convincing. I didn’t like Drew, he was just plain rude all the time. There was no reason for Gabrielle to love him, except maybe his gorgeous body and the reader will soon tire of reading about his dashing figure. Drew could have been much better behaved.

The Mallory’s, James and Georgina are the best part of the story. It’s too bad the book wasn’t devoted entirely to them. ( )
