Bookworming: Stormy Persuasion by Johanna Lindsey

I am – as some of you can probably already guess – UNBELIEVABLY excited for the upcoming Johanna Lindsey novel, Stormy Persuasion. (The only downside is that I have to wait until June 10, 2014 to read it…)

I’m super glad that Ms. Lindsey is getting into the children’s storylines in the Malory series, and since Judith is one of the my fave characters, this novel is the cake and the icing!

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.

I swear, it’s like Ms. Lindsey read my mind when she starting writing this book! Now, excuse me, while I go hyperventilate from excitement!
