Gentle Rogue by Johanna Lindsey

★★★★ 4.5 Stars

This is still one of my favourite books. James Malory is a great leading man and while Georgina is a bit naive sometimes (I guess she could be allowed her being an innocent and all) she is spunky and a good match for James. I love reading their conversations and found myself wanting to get back to story often -even though I know what's going to happen.

As this book was a reread for me I noticed this time around that there was a fair amount of recapping which seemed a bit tedious having just read the previous books. Also, as this is the third book in the series.. if you hadn't read the other two, those recaps would spoil those stories instead of just dropping hints that make you want to read them. So because of that I docked half a star.

This series has a wonderful bunch of characters. Jeremy and Georgina's are delightful and even now I look forward to rereading their stories. If you have never read this series, I would recommend that you do!

Here's the Blurb:

Heartsick and desperate to return home to America, Georgina Anderson boards the Maiden Anne disguised as a cabin boy, never dreaming she'll be forced into intimate servitude at the whim of the ship's irrepressible captain, James Mallory.

The black sheep of a proud and tempestuous family, the handsome ex-pirate once swore no woman alive could entice him into matrimony. But on the high seas his resolve will be weakened by an unrestrained passion and by the high-spirited beauty whose love of freedom and adventure rivals his own.
