Forced to flee Napoleon's rampaging army on the continent, orphaned Alana Farmer and her guardian find safety and a home in London.

Forced to flee Napoleon’s rampaging army on the continent, orphaned Alana Farmer and her eccentric guardian make a new home for themselves in London. There, Alana enjoys every privilege a daughter of the nobility could hope for, plus an education fit for a queen. Now, on the eve of her debut into London Society, she learns the shocking secret of her birthright. Can it be true? Is she really the lost princess of the European kingdom of Lubinia? Persuaded by her guardian to return to their homeland to quell a bloody revolt, Alana finds herself in an isolated, mountainous country whose customs strike her as medieval!

With controversy and intrigue brewing around the beautiful newcomer, Christoph Becker, the captain of the palace guards, arrests Alana on suspicion that she is either a wily imposter or a seductive spy working for the shadowy figures determined to depose the king. No stranger himself to seduction, Christoph uses every means at his disposal to draw the truth from his alluring prisoner, even if he must lay his own life on the line to protect her from harm. Now, as a fiery passion flares between Alana and the man who has wrongly imprisoned her, the fate of a nation rests in their hands and on their hearts.

This is one of my favorites although it only gets good, for me, after several chapters as Anthony gets more involves and like Derek's story there is a big "OMG, didn't see that coming", although not as near the end of the story. As with the prior book, this focus's on George's brother Boyd. The story also has overtones that you may find similiar in the final book of the series. Katie, the heroine, was raised in America after her mother was disowned by her English aristocratic family for marrying into trade. When Katie's mother dies in an accident, Katie decides to use the inheritance that her mother refused to accept and return to England to find her family. She travels on a Skylark ship owned by Boyd Anderson. That's starts the story and conflict. Its hard to tell the primary conflict, with its expected misunderstandings & clashes without telling all the subplots, and there are several, that bring Anthony, James, Judith and the rest of the group into the narrow story of Boyd and Katie. Its a good read.
When I first read this book, I have to admit that I really enjoyed myself. I read the novel very fast, appreciated the plot for having at least some classic Lindsey twists to it, even if it was a little easy to see beforehand. The book really could have been so much better. I know I've read some rumors about Johanna Lindsey having a ghost writer, but I don't believe it. I just think that she's written so many books that she's getting softer. There is a threat of conflict, but it seems like Lindsey doesn't really want to get into it. There is a hint of desire, but no real heat. I read a couple of other reviews that said that it didn't make sense for the hero to automatically be attracted to the heroine, but I've read many a Lindsey novel, including her best ones that there is instant attraction. My biggest complaint is that the sex is almost unmentionable...in a bad way. Nothing really. I felt cheated. No build up, no passion, I felt like I was eating ramen noodles instead of the gourmet meals she used to serve. It was over before it started. I can also complain about the loose ties. The reader is led to believe that the queen was being drugged into losing her babies, but....? I would have given this book 4 stars just because as most people have mentioned before me, I am a HUGE Johanna Lindsey fan. I've read Lindseys for longer than half of my life. She has been my favorite author for so long I don't even question her....but the reason I gave this novel 3 stars is because I took a step back, thought about the story and then remembered some of my old favorites like "Surrender My Love", "Prisoner of My Desire", "Once a Princess", and of course the the first half of the Malory novels and I realized....her current books just aren't as good.
I liked this book but somewhere in the beginning to middle"ish, I felt like I missed something. I honestly looked at the page numbers to see if I missed a page. I have never felt that way with Johanna's books before. I felt like there was way too much detail on the political aspects and not nearly enough on the romance. When they first (spoiler alert) have sex, I would've liked to see the build up to that. She goes to bed and "wakes" up and they are basically already in the midst of the foreplay. What? Why didn't she give the build up of having him come into the room and be overwhelmed with "passion" for what he saw and tell what he's feeling and thinking. Then after this scene Alana starts acting like it's no big deal that this happened and it's not proper for them to have anything else happen. Again, What?

I too wasn't blown away with her character but didn't really notice until 3/4 of the way through. Meaning I liked her up until this point but she never stopped complaining and acting like a brat. How was he not irritated, I was. I felt like at this point there should've been more change in her than there was.

Overall I liked this book, but was disappointed because I think it could've been soooo much better.
Although I haven't read the other reviews, it looks like some people were disappointed by this latest Malory novel. Sad to hear that because I thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm a huge Lindsey fan, and the Malorys have a special place in my heart. Although I agree with another reviewer's header that it's not as much a romance as it is a story about the Malorys, to my surprise, I wasn't bothered by it. I was thrilled to get so many pages filled with Anthony and James together. And I DID like Boyd and Katey as a couple. Granted, their characters could have been developed much more, but I had so much fun going along for the adventure, I can't bring myself to judge their storyline too harshly. The one thing I will say though . . . considering that Boyd fell in love with a certain part of Katey's anatomy before he ever even spoke to her, and repeatedly ogled said anatomy throughout the book, I was surprised that his reaction to finally getting to be intimate with that anatomy was not played up somehow. It could have been a very funny part of the scene! I guess I'll have to leave that to MY imagination. :-)

Now that Ms. Lindsey has paired up all the grown Malorys and three of the Andersons, I'm very curious to see where she takes the series next. I know the logical thing would be to age James' and Anthony's daughters to marriageable points, but I kind of hate the idea of the two brothers going into their 50s. I just love them as-is. I certainly wouldn't mind if the next book was simply an adventure that featured the whole family, rather than strictly a romance novel. But, then, it wouldn't fit into the "romance" genre, now would it? Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

I do hope their are others who speak up in defense of this novel. The last novel, featuring Drew and Gabrielle, definitely WAS superior, however "No Choice But Seduction" is still worth the read! At least in my opinion. :-)
