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 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!

Would you listen to Stormy Persuasion again? Why?
I would listen to this book again as it is fun easy listen.
What other book might you compare Stormy Persuasion to, and why?
Very much in the same vein as the other Malory books if you enjoyed those then chances are you will enjoy this one too.
Did Laural Merlington do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
She is an odd choice of narrator for this book as all of the main characters and most of the other characters are English, and as she is an American and her English accent is not very convincing, and therefore it feels a little out of place.
Any additional comments?
Liked the book, very fun and unchallenging this book is good if you want a light, beach read type of book. If you have read other Malory books then lots of previous characters show up which is nice, although I woul say you need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one.
