    One thought on “Love Only Once”

    1. Double triple Mega Meh.It's been a while since I read a Johanna Lindsey that wasn't a re-read. But a bunch of her stuff was on mega sale via kindle a while a back so I picked up this little never-before-read nugget in addition to some "kindle replacements" for some of her old paperbacks I have had since I was 12. Because anytime I can get books with covers like these off my shelves?And avoid getting this look when hubby's hot friends drop a box of books on moving day and 1980's Fabio and friends [...]

    2. The story of a pwecious darling orphaned Pooky Honey Boo Boo Starshine who is the apple of her series-bait uncles' eyes, and the pussy "rake" Nicholas Eden who is all wah-wah about being a bastard.General idiocy ensues.The heroine's name is Regina, but I got slammed with "Reggie" the entire book. Shoot me.When I see "Reggie" my mind immediately goes to Upper Class Twit, not Smokey Siren of Seduction.She really was sumthin' speshul, and her relationship with her uncles was such that, had the auth [...]

    3. Written July 19, 20153 Stars - Charming "oldish" and undoubtedly entertaining sweetLove Only Once is a quite old (1985) both loved and disliked historical. I couldn't resist when I saw it was just a few bucks for the kindle book including the 7:50 hrs audiobook narrated by Laural Merlington. We'll see if it is a dreadful miss or a happy winner for me. LOL!! I'm not sure was it a miss?Ridiculously fun - I'm almost ashamed but I actually smiled and giggled in nearly eight hours. This, despite all [...]

    4. I only got a few chapters into this book and set it down. The hero is with his mistress at the beginning of the book and he's decided that he's bored of her. He decides to tell her the affair is over after a big social engagement they're attending. His mistress can tell his affections are waning and tries to bait the hero into marriage which doesn't work. Then it switches to the heroine and her family and all their relatives are listed as they get ready for a big social event. Then the heroine g [...]

    5. I absolutely adore the Malory family. Strangely enough I almost love them more than the plots. Lol!I actually danced around my apartment, that's how happy this book made me! We get to meet Regina aka Reggie who is an orphan with four overprotective uncles. She is strong, beautiful, clever and funny. Add Nicholas Eden who is the worst rake and has a secret. He is a bastard and his "mother" threatens to tell the world. Therefore, he will never marry. Regina borrows Lady Selena's carriage to go to [...]

    6. Το πρώτο βιβλίο της σειράς έχει ως βασικό του στόχο να μας συστήσει όλα τα μέλη της οικογένειας που φαίνεται πως θα μας απασχολεί για πολύ καιρό. Στο επίκεντρο της αφήγησης, η Ρετζίνα Άστον και ο Νίκολας Ίντεν. Η απαγωγή της πρώτης από τον δεύτερο θα τους οδηγήσει σε μονοπάτι [...]

    7. Ειλικρινά μου άρεσε πάρα πολύ αυτό το βιβλίο! Ολόκληρη η οικογένεια Μάλορι είναι συναρπαστική και ολίγον τι τρελή! Αλλά ήταν απολαυστικοί!!! Όλοι τους!!! Θα ήθελα να διαβάσω όλη τους την ιστορία, του καθένα ξεχωριστά Ελπίζω η "Διόπτρα" να εκδόσει και τα υπόλοιπα βιβλία, και ας [...]

    8. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI decided to re read this Malory Anderson series, as I am working on character sketch for this series and I had realized that I haven't reviewed much of the series and somehow Love Only Once fell through the cracks. And boy did I have a wonderful time reconnecting with this fun family and this romance that just gave me laughs and fun times. Love Only Once is the first book of the series and it starts off with Regina's story. Now Regina is t [...]

    9. 2'5 para el primero de los Malory. La historia no está mal y definitivamente Anthony y James son ansñsbsñañskdks pero parece escrita por el mono loco

    10. Sweet, melted Velveeta, I couldn't help but love this book. Even though it has the dreaded Big Misunderstandings over and over (and over and over) again, the writing is intelligent, the characters fleshed out and likable, the plot engaging, and the romance sort of jarringly sweet without being saccharine. Reggie was amazing, and as someone who grows weary of the female stereotypes in these books (they're either indiscriminate whores or blushing ninnies) I couldn't help but celebrate a virgin cha [...]

    11. No matter how much I may enjoy an author, I just can't stomach a plot where the kind, loving heoine is used, abused and treated absolutely abominably (flaunting other mistresses in her presence, abandoned on his doorstep on their wedding night etc.) by the hero(?)throughout the entire book as this one does. The biggest insult, however, was after an entire book of this behavior, the hero comes into ravish the heroine after a night of drinking, after which both are happy. UGH! The book rated 2 sta [...]

    12. Okay, I'm cheating here, and I don't like them all equally, but I do love the Mallory's. They're all funny. I especially liked Love Only Once (the first book), Gentle Rogue (my favorite), and The Magic of You (where the heroine chases the hero shamelessly).

    13. The first half of the book is 5 stars definitely!! Second half is full of incredibly annoying misunderstandings that ruined it for me. So I settled for 3 stars.

    14. Recently I was at the library and I saw a book by Johanna Lindsey that looked interesting, but it said it was Malory-Anderson Family series #Bazillion, so I decided to start at the beginning with #1. Even though I was a little leery because it was written in 1985, and I am realizing I am not really a fan of Old School type romance. (Unlike science fiction and fantasy novels from the 1980s, which I love, perhaps because that's what I read back in the day and nostalgia has a way of papering over t [...]

    15. Me habían hablado maravillas de esta serie y me he quedado un poco plof. Creo que Nicholas es uno de los protagonistas masculinos que más he odiado y, hasta las últimas 15 páginas de la novela, no tuve la sensación de estar leyendo una historia de amor, sino más bien todo lo contrario. Si no le pongo aún menos nota es porque Regina sí me ha gustado (él no se la merece, jum) y porque los tíos de ella son geniales y la autora te deja con ganas de conocer sus historias (les daré una opor [...]

    16. Review in a few! This one may take a minute. Cause I remember loving it but it was full of things I hated.

    17. Προτού καν ξεκινήσω να διαβάζω το πρώτο βιβλίο της σειράς,είχα ήδη ακούσει τα καλύτερα λόγια από τις φίλες μου για τη Johanna Lindsey και τα βιβλία της. Τελειώνοντας το πρώτο,δεν έχω παρά να συμφωνήσω μαζί τους.Ρομάντζο εποχής,κι όμως τόσο σύγχρονο! Ιστορία αγάπης,κι όμως τόσο περι [...]

    18. I wanted to read a book in the Malory series so thought better begin at the beginning. And got a selfish whiny boy masquerading as the hero. The effervescent h is no better – swearing no one messes with a Malory twice but lets the H walk all over her doormatty self - more than once. *Spoilers All*What else?The h-H had an absolute non-connection as far as I could see. Apart from the H’s repetitive randy ‘let me love you’ line and the h thinking that she better marry him after he ruins her [...]

    19. I really enjoyed the first book of the Malory series. I could not put it down! Reggie was orphaned when she was 2 years old but raised by her four uncles. Four tough Malory men who love her dearly but could never agree on anything when it came to Reggie! Uncle Anthony was my absolute favorite and I just loved the relationship that they both shared! Nicholas Eden is an arrogant, notorious rake and knows that he could get any woman he wants. He has many women trying to win his affections but he’ [...]

    20. I thoroughly enjoyed Regina and Nicholas' love story. I did become a bit frustrated with all their bickering. They were at odds throughout most of the book. Nonetheless, I did love getting to know the Mallory characters again. I've listened to many of the other books in this series, but I had missed this one for some reason. My personal favorite of the Mallory family is James' story. He is a marvelous character and he is introduced in this book. Happy reading!

    21. RATING: 1.5 stars.Herói: *embebeda heroína*Heroína (quando sabe): Uau, ele gosta tanto de mim que até me embebedou para poder ir para a cama comigo. It's luuuurve.No.

    22. αυτο το βιβλιο ειναι ενα αρλεκινκαι γω μισω τα αρλεκινεχει τραγικα κακη μεταφραση και εκφρασεις που δεν εχουν καμια επαφη με το 1800 που διαδραματιζετε το βιβλιο ,παρολλα αυτα το αγαπησαμε ξεκουρασε και μαρεσε πολυ ασχετα με το ποσο χαζομαρα ειναιελπιζω να βγαλατε ακρη με αυ [...]

    23. I read this when I was younger and thought I liked it, and it was ok till the hero takes off for 7 months right after the wedding. We don't really know much of what he did except he was working at his plantation. Well I hate finishing a book and having questions that will never get answered. Did the hero cheat on heroine? That kind of stuff is important and wouldn't the heroine think so? Not this heroine. So I will not read again.

    24. There was a lot about this book that I enjoyed, and I've read a whole lot of Johanna Lindsey's books. However, the further we got into the story, the less and less I liked the male romantic lead-- in theory, there were lots of reasons (insights into his thoughts and reasoning, and so on) that he could be "forgivable," or "understandable," but in all, he really was a jerk. A lot of Lindsey's books have the "main character resists spilling the beans about secret from the past, beyond all boundarie [...]

    25. Lindo!! lolOra bem, acho (tenho a certeza) de que a saga Malory veio para ficar e para conquistar um lugar nos corações dos leitores portugueses. Foi, sem sombra de qualquer dúvida, uma excelente aposta da ASA, que já nos habituou a grandes famílias e a grandes histórias, o grande exemplo sendo a nossa querida família Bridgerton.Regina Malory é, no mínimo, uma personagem *deliciosa*. Tem personalidade forte, tem piada e tem muita inteligência, bem como uma força interior do tamanho da [...]

    26. 3.5 starsThis is the first book that I have read by Johanna Lindsey and it was a relatively typical historical romance. I probably won't remember it after a few days, but it was quick and entertaining, which is usually all I ask for. Nicholas and Regina's story is very cute though a little exasperating at times. While the characters are great, it's frustrating because there is no communication and a lot of misunderstandings. I almost gave it four stars, but the vanquishing of the villain was too [...]
