But his reckless attempt to woo Georgina at a masked ball turns out to be the worst mistake of his life because it brings him face to face with another beautiful woman.

About the author

Biography of Lindsey, Johanna

Johanna Lindsey is one of the world's most successful romance authors. She has written over 30 books, of which 54 million copies are in print and have been translated into 12 languages. As a young wife and mother, Lindsey became a great fan of romance novels and wrote her first book on a whim. "I started writing as a hobby. I never thought of being a writer when I was young.

Now I wouldn't want to do anything else". The first book, "Captive Bride" (1977) was written when she was 25. To the young author's great surprise, it made The New York Times Bestsellers list. Lindsey had found a romance formula that worked. Take any setting past or present, introduce a rascally-rakish male and a romantic heroine, let their hearts ignite with passion, lust, and love. Lindsey has something of a cult following, following such titles as "Heart of Thunder", "Hearts Aflame", "A Heart So Wild", and "Keeper of the Heart". She has loyal fans reading "Glorious Angel" and "Gentle Rogue" and legions of devotees buying her Malory family series.

Because her father was in the U.S. Army, Lindsey traveled widely as a child. She was born in Germany and grew up in Fort Knox, Kentucky. The family settled in Hawaii and Lindsey was married right after high school to her husband Ralph, who has since passed away. She has three sons and is a grandmother.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-06-15)

Fleeing an arranged marriage after he sees the devastating effect his greedy father's similarly manipulative schemes had on his brother, Richard Allen takes to the high seas and becomes Jean Paul, a notorious French pirate. Years later a mission takes him back to England, where he encounters Julia Miller, his fiancee since childhood. They recognize each other, and their dormant mutual hatred comes to life. Then a vicious act of treachery changes everything and sends Julia to Jean Paul's rescue and, eventually, into his arms.

Verdict: Combining witty banter, colorful, intriguing characters, and seductive passion, Lindsey's historical romances are legendary, and this one is no exception. Malory fans (and readers new to the series, too) will welcome this latest adventurous addition. Lindsey (A Rogue of My Own) now lives in Maine. [Ebook ISBN 978-1-4391-7690-0.]

Nine years ago, Richard Allen fled England and his controlling father. Determined to live his own life, he took to the sea and settled in the Caribbean, joining a band of treasure-hunting pirates and adopting the persona of a carefree, seductive Frenchman named Jean Paul to guard the secrets of his past.
