"Love Only Once" by Johanna Lindsey
Fall Reading Challenge
Mallory Series #1
From the Back Cover
The exquisite niece of Lord Edward and Lady Charlotte Malory, Regina Ashton is outraged over her abduction by the arrogant, devilishly handsome Nicholas Eden -- and is determined to make the rogue pay ... with his heart.
A golden-haired seducer, Nicholas has been hardened by a painful secret in his past. And now that he has besmirched Reggie's good name, the hot-tempered lady has vowed to wed him. Her fiery beauty stirs Nicholas as no woman ever has -- and the rake arouses Reggie's passion to an unendurable level. Such uncontrolled desires can lead only to dangerous misunderstandings ... and, perhaps, to a love that can live only once in a lifetime.
Well, I don't think this teaser is too accurate! I just finished this book, and I don't recall any dangerous misunderstandings, or that she was outraged at being abducted. I clearly recall her being amused by it, cuz she knew it was a mistake.
Aaaanyway, I think I liked this book! It was good. I don't think it was great! Now I will say that the moments before her wedding, I had to put the book down to go somewhere, and I wondered almost all the way to where I was going, about what was going to happen next to Regina and Nicholas. So, I was invested. I'm pretty easy, so I'll have to give this a 3.5 or 4. It was good enough for me to invest, but I'm not dying to read the next in the series. I think I was pleasantly surprised, cuz for some reason, I was expecting this to be pretty bad. It's almost better to have low expectations, so that you have a good chance of surpassing them. I'm going to say 3.5.
