Loved the Old Lindsey, her new stuff ... yawn
What would have made Stormy Persuasion better?
I hate the new story formula of I see you, I fall instantly in love, I have sex with you, and flirt with you, and you are a criminal, but who cares, you are sexy, so let's jump in bed despite very little interaction, with most of the story of who is avoiding who, so not building attraction, rather, lust at first sight. oh yeah, let's through in a little of a story.
Would you ever listen to anything by Johanna Lindsey again?
I loved the books from the 90s that coined the term, "everyone loves a Lindsey." If those books, like Once a Princess or any of the Viking stories were on audible, I'd by them in an instant.
Which scene was your favorite?
none - it was all so flirt, sex, flirt, sex, without any real story line despite the very rich characters already in the story like, George, Tony, etc.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stormy Persuasion?
way too much a story based on the modern day version of casual sex flirt, flirt, he's hot, let's hook up. you already have great characters - Judith is a real disappointing character painted as a modern day, air head, slutty, casual sex character. that's not why I read historical romance
Any additional comments?
please go back to the formula that made me fall in love with Johanna Lindsey books. This is not it.

I miss the old Lindsay
I have been a fan of Johanna Lindsay books for over 25 years, but her newer novels in this series leave me feeling more frustrated than entertained. The plot points feel contrived and unrealistic, with characters making choices that make no sense based on who they are, so that particular plot points can happen. If I'm too busy scoffing at the character's reaction or choice to remain invested in the story, then there is a problem. I pushed through the last few books in this series because I fell in love with the Malory family many years ago, and it made me sad to find I was having to make myself finish the books rather than eagerly enjoying them. They have become far-fetched and predictable, and I miss the old Johanna Lindsey!

As always I Love Lindsey's Mallory-Anderson series
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I like that Ms Lindsey is continuing the Mallory/Anderson saga with the Anthony's daughter, I hope Ms Lindsey is working on Jack's story.
What other book might you compare Stormy Persuasion to and why?
If I'm recalling correctly it's like James's Story (A Gentle Feuding). With a sea voyage, an unknown enemy and a kidnapping
Have you listened to any of Laural Merlington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, she has a smooth flow and I enjoy her style. Ms Merlington is one of my favorite narrators
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
This is a hard one, but what I enjoyed is the fact that held his own against the Mallory's.In and out of the ring. But mostly I liked Jack and Judy grown up.
Any additional comments?
Please Ms Lindsey I would like to know what happened to the 'bastard' and Andrew? Who will Jacqueline drag kicking and screaming to the alter?

Not my favorite of the series
This was my least favorite book of the series. I did not care for the relationship development between Judith and Nathan. The location of the intimate moments they shared were unrealistic. I wish the author had provided more character development for Judy and Jack through the years with a previous book instead of fast forwarding from adolescence to 18 years of age.
