#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey returns to the dazzlingly passionate world of the Malorys, an aristocratic family of rakehell adventurers and spirited ladies, in a thrilling new tale of unbridled desires.

James Malory sets sail for America to honor a promise he made to his in-laws: His and Georgina’s daughter, Jacqueline, will have her come-out in America. Judith and Jacqueline Malory are not simply cousins; they are inseparable best friends. Refusing to miss Jacqueline’s come-out in Connecticut, Judith convinces her parents to let her delay her London debut by a few weeks so she can accompany her cousin. Neither girl intends to fall in love during her first Season. But Judith’s plans are overturned when aboard ship she comes face-to-face with the ghost who has been haunting her dreams.

Unknown to the Malorys, deckhand Nathan Tremayne is a smuggler with a noose around his neck. Determined to carry out a covert mission in America that could gain him a pardon, Nathan senses that beautiful Judith Malory is trouble. Somehow the minx knows his secret—and now she’s blackmailing him into doing her bidding. While passions can soar on the high seas, Nathan knows this aristocratic beauty is merely amusing herself with a scoundrel like him.

When the unthinkable happens in Connecticut and the elder Malorys’ hands are tied, Nathan takes command of a dire situation. Captaining his own ship, he turns the tables on Judith, as he steers them into some intense Caribbean heat where he will fight with all his mettle to win the right to her heart.

STORMY PERSUASION by Johanna Lindsey is an exciting Historical Romance. #11 in the “Malory-Anderson Family series, but can be read as a stand alone. I loved this tale of sacrifice, family relationships, pirates, passion, selflessness, romance and the power of love.
This is Judith Malory and Nathan Tremayne. Nathan, a smuggler with a noose around his neck, on a convert mission to America, looking for redemption and Judith looking for adventure and love.
Malory fans are sure to enjoy Ms. Lindsey’s return to the Malory clan. Even if you haven’t read one of the Malory tales, you will enjoy “Stormy Persuasion”.  It was not hard to follow the storyline, and characters. Well written with the most engaging characters, and an intriguing as well as interesting storyline and very entertaining indeed. A bit of humor is added to this tale, which, is a plus. A new generation of Malory’s are on the horizon. Look out fans, there is sure to more coming. I absolutely loved this story. I was turning pages as fast as  I could, and didn’t want to put it down. I would highly recommend this title. Oh did I mention the passion,the danger around the corner and the betrayal. Well done!!
