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 (2011-06-15)

Saved as a baby from death when her would-be assassin whisks her off to England and raises her as his niece, Alana has no idea that she is actually Princess Alana of Lubinia. Rising unrest owing to the Lubinian king's lack of a legitimate heir forces her Uncle Poppie to reveal the truth-and return with her to her homeland. Handsome palace guard Capt. Christoph Becker doesn't believe her tale and takes Alana prisoner, leaving her to realize that proving her identity-and seeing her father-is going to be much more difficult than she'd thought. Old secrets, vengeful plots, and a few too many lies intensify this twisting story line.

Verdict: Fast paced, intricately plotted, and laced with villainous court intrigue, this whimsical, magical tale puts a refreshing spin on the classic long-lost princess plot. A perfect way to spend a lazy summer afternoon. Lindsey (That Perfect Someone) lives in Maine.
