Even that had ended well enough, since Devlin gave hot pursuit to retrieve his duchess-to-be and thrashed Lachlan soundly for his audacity.

Even that had ended well enough, since Devlin gave hot pursuit to retrieve his duchess-to-be and thrashed Lachlan soundly for his audacity. Oddly, that still wasn’t the end of it, however, because unbeknownst to them both, the two men were related by marriage, sharing the same aunt, and when Lachlan decided to put reaving behind him-it had never really worked to support his clan-and marry a wealthy heiress instead to solve the problem of his lack of funds, he turned to that.

I remember reading Johanna Lindsey novels years ago and decided to pick up the Sherring Cross Series. I watched in dismay, as the books in the series got progressively worse. Thank goodness this is the last book in this series! The characters have to overcome obstacles that are not only silly but incredibly unlikely, too. The fact that the main character has 16 brothers with names as stupid as "Ian One" and "Ian Six" points to too many characters and none of them are well developed. Even the main characters lack much in the personality department

Johanna Lindsey, The Pursuit. Thank you for reading books on BookFrom.

Johanna Lindsey, The Pursuit.

The Pursuit is the first Johanna Lindsey book I've read (and of course it's third in a trilogy), and it definitely surpassed . This third and last book of the Sherring Cross series is the love story of Melissa MacGregor, daughter of Kimberly and Lachlan; and Lincoln Ross Burnett.

The Pursuit is the first Johanna Lindsey book I've read (and of course it's third in a trilogy), and it definitely surpassed expectations. I was initially wary, although I am not sure why, but I ended up having a lot of fun reading this. The Pursuit was a light and fluffy read, with some interesting twists and turns to keep it going. Lincoln used to live in Scotland but was sent to live with his aunt and uncle in England when his father passed away and his mother had trouble taking care of Lincoln due to his fighting with boys near his home.

Written by Johanna Lindsey. Narrated by Michael Page. But there are serious obstacles impeding the well-smitten Viscount Cambury's pursuit of glorious romance: sixteen of them-all big and brawny, six named Ian and all named MacFearson. The bane of Lincoln's youth, Melissa's stifling, disapproving uncles are now determined to rob him of his newfound happiness.

But then a bold young woman crosses his path. Johanna Lindsey′s enchanting romantic adventure All I Need Is You is the sequel to her immensely popular A Heart So Wild.

Courtney Harte is certain her missing father is a alive, lost somewhere deep in Indian territory. But she needs a guide to lead her safely through this dangerous, unfamiliar country, someone as wild and unpredictable as the land itself. But then a bold young woman crosses his path. Maxine grew up so pretty and attracted so much unwanted attention in her Texas hometown that events spiraled out of control.

The interior was spacious, would seat eight, perhaps even ten, very comfortably. But she wasn’t comfortable. Neither was he. Their dread was contagious. if you turn out tae be a monster, I swear I’ll be really annoyed wi’ yo. .Thank you. I was beginning to sound too serious, wasn’t I?. A wee bit, aye, she mumbled. I’ll try to keep this in perspective and not bore you with incidentals. You do need to get back before dawn, after al.

series Sherring Cross #3.

Michael Page creates superb accents and characterizations for the 16 MacGregor brothers, as well as the various other women and men in this enchanting romance. Page handles the fights, a kidnapping, and even some steamy scenes with a consistent Scottish burr. His performance is marred only by the bleed-through of the tape. THE PURSUIT is the stuff of romance, certain to lighten Indian summer blues.

What was to be a grand adventure for Melissa MacGregor—an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene - seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett. Though they exchange but a few words before parting after a chance encounter on her grandfather's lands, Melissa instantly knows this bold stranger is her destiny, while Lincoln realizes his heart has been claimed forever and he will never be complete until Melissa MacGregor is his bride.


But there are serious obstacles impeding the well-smitten Viscount Cambury's pursuit of glorious romance: sixteen of them—all big and brawny, six named Ian and all named MacFearson. The bane of Lincoln's youth, Melissa's stifling, disapproving uncles are now determined to rob him of his newfound happiness. Yet he is equally resolved to confront the peril—and to pursue his exquisite obsession all the way to London…and to the ends of the earth, if necessary.

Now based on previous reviews I would not have read this book. However I read this book before and wanted to read it again. I see that the previous reviews had a problem with the characters. The problem most people seem to have roll with the secondary characters the heroine's uncles. I didn't have a problem with these men being named Ian one etc etc because it was a popular practice to name one's son after his father. I found this book enjoyable the first and second time I read it. There was only one issue I have with the book and that was too much attention was given to Lincoln's past conflicts with the McPhersons and not enough romance with the heroine.

I've come to the conclusion that Karen Robards would like to switch genres. If that's the case I wish she would just do it already! I'm tired of buying her books expecting the romance to play an equal part to the suspense, when, lately, it's just been an afterthought! She used to be able to combine the two beautifully but hasn't done it well since Night Whispers. (For you romance fans out there, I'd suggest going back and reading her old stuff, if you haven't already. You won't be disappointed.) I think part of the problem is she started writing books (like this one) that don't lend themselves well to believable romance. Pursuit is an apt title for this one because it was just that. Non-stop, beginning to end. The one small break they did have (towards the end) is where she decided to throw-in the one love scene. When that was over, so was the break. (I mean immediately!) These type of wall-to-wall action books are great for the suspense fans but not so much for the romance fans.

That being said, I did give this book 3 1/2 stars. (Amazon really needs to start allowing the 1/2 star ratings!) As little a part as the romance played, she still managed to create some chemistry between our hero and heroine, and the one love scene was pretty hot! And as for the suspense part, I thought she did great with that. She certainly kept me turning pages! It was an amazingly fast, fun, and exciting read. I just had one big beef with the character of Jess that kept me from really liking her and that was her vacillating between trust and distrust of the hero. It was completely believable at first, but after the guy has saved her life about 4 or 5 times, not to mention the many scrapes and jams he rescued her from, her constant wavering seemed ridiculous! But still, all-in-all, an enjoyable read! I just think she needs to take the plunge on over to strait-up suspense, as Tami Hoag did before her. (And Sandra Brown needs to do, also.) If we're not plunking our money down for romance we won't be disappointed!

This novel is very reminiscent of her earlier novels. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In these times it was more believable than it would have been 20 yrs ago. The mystery was excellent and the romance was good. This is what a Karen Robards novel should be like.

Jessica Ford is a young lawyer working her way up in a dog eat dog world. She has decided she will do what it takes to get ahead at the prestigious firm where she is employed. Jessica comes from a working family and if it takes working 24 hours a day she will do it. The rest of her family is made up of gorgeous women including her mother, but Jess feels left out in the looks department she is small and wears glasses. Nevertheless, her brains and determination are better than most, and so when her boss calls late at night and asks her to pick up the first-lady and see her home in a limo, Jessica hurries out to the hotel to pick her up. Nothing goes right, the first-lady is drinking heavily and seems scared and determined to escape the surveilence of the Secret Service. The next thing she sees is a fire and feels unable to move toward it. Laying on the ground she is found by the head of Mrs. Cooper's Secret Service. The limo is totally destroyed by fire and everyone in it are dead except Jess. Jess is quarrentined from the press and almost as soon as she opens her eyes she sees a man dressed like the SS trying to inject something into her IV. She screams and rolls off the bed just as Mark Ryan runs into her room. No one believes her and she doesn't know who to trust. She remembers things that tell her the accident was no accident. But who to trust, and who to tell? Definitely not the SS.

Mark Ryan is the head of the SS assigned to the first-lady, Annette Cooper. He knows she has a drug problem, so he thinks the accident was due to her wanting to score some drugs. However, little things do bother him. He trusts the SS and they have never had a traitor working for them. He knows Jess is lying when she says she doesn't remember and so he will watch her closely. Then people around Jess and the first-lady start dying and Mark wants to know, what is going on? But the more he pushes her the more Jess doesn't trust him. Mark is used to covering up for the president and his wife and is determined that whatever happened, it will not touch the President or the SS.

The action is fast, the story is interesting, and I did enjoy it, very much. I recommend it highly if you enjoyed her earlier books.

Just when I think her books can't get better, they do. I'm not reading her books in any particular order. I am finding that her older books are better than her most recent which are still good.
I usually don't like "pursuit" books but this one was excellent. It concerns a plot in which the President's wife is killed in an MVA. Jess is the only one who survives and knows the truth. Is the Secret Service Agent out to kill her or not?
