Throwback Thursday: What Johanna Lindsey Novels Have You Read?

Johanna Lindsey's Stormy Persuasion is a return to her Malorys series, and judging by the book's sales, many readers were excited to see Lindsey's return.  Lindsey's first book, Captive Bride, came out in 1977, and she has published well over fifty books in the course of her career.

“You know, you really don't have to kill anyone over this. I'll get an annulment. It will be like never happened.“

His eyes came to her, briefly meeting her gaze before dropping to her mouth. ”You'll have to make that a divorce instead.“

”No, you don't understand. An annulment will be much easier to obtain.“

His gaze locked with hers now. Cassie became slightly breathless with the intensity of his stare.

”Not after tonight, it won't,“ he said in his mesmerizing drawl.

”Why?“ She barely got the word out.

”Because I'm in the mood to play husband.“

”You're what?“

He started toward her. She was too stunned to move, so he was there and reaching for her before she had time to think about running.

”We're having a wedding night," he said as he lifted her off her feet.—”

*sighs* I have read them all. Every last one of them. Angel is one of my all time favorites. I love it when he breaks into her hotel room late in the book and asks "Are we divorced yet?" and then proceeds to get into bed with her. Such fond memories!

I grew up reading her books. Love them! One of my favorites was Warrior's Woman. A futuristic, sci-fi. Another of my faves... Savage Thunder.

Hmmmmmmm, I probably read 1/2 to 2/3 of her books. I quit reading them in the early 2000's.

I'm pretty sure I read most of hers. The ones I remember most though, Secret Fire (which recently was released digitally and yes, I own it digitally now) and Captive Bride. The one that I still think was "WTF did I just read?" is Warrior's Woman. I actually didn't enjoy most of the Malory series but I did read them.

I read many of Johanna Lindsey's books back in the day and passed them back and forth with my elderly neighbor who started my romance addiction. The books that stuck in my mind are Captive Bride and the Viking books (three or four?). I have read most of her holiday books over the years. I haven't revisited any of the older books in ages and am guessing Captive Bride would appall me compared to today's historicals.

The one that always stands out for me--and might be one of the only JL books I've read is The Heir, mostly because I love me a Scotsman!

I read most everything she put out before 1987, when I moved to Spain. While there, I found "Defy Not The Heart" translated to Spanish and read that one. The scene with the farting cat is still a favorite. Years later I found and English copy when I returned to the States, but I still re-read my Spanish one ocassionally. I'm afraid I never got back into reading her after my sojourn in Spain.

Oh, I am sure that most people today would hate both it and Secret Fire. But seriously, Phillip was willing to be tortured and die for her. Despite her captivity, I remember it as Christina really having all the power in that relationship.

@ Kadiya - I added Captive Bride to my wish list and will have to go back for a re-read this Summer. And you are right, Christina does have the power when all is said and done. Amazing how a story sticks after so many years!

I started with Captive Bride and probably read through the '90's.

I have read all of them. My first was Savage Thunder. That was all it took. I have all of them.

She's the reason I write romance today :D I grew up reading her works and loving it every time a new one hit the stands. As for a favorite, I'd have to go with Savage Thunder, but there are so many to choose from! My intro was A Gentle Feuding, which was what started the whole Lindsey ball rolling.

Captive Bride, Fires of Winter, Warrior's Woman, Gentle Rogue those are the ones I remember but I think I've read more of her. Ms Lindsey is a wonderful writer.
