Joan Johnston is a very good author that I stumbled upon at Barnes & Noble. I love her Sisters of the Lone Star series and her Bitter Creek series. I also love her Montana Bride series which isn’t really what it’s called but I’m calling it that because they are connected to each other. But today I’m going to talk about her Captive Hearts Series, which is a very good series that I loved reading and have re-read a couple of times. I love historical romances and Joan Johnston is very good and I recommend everyone to give her books a try. Here is the descriptions of the books from the back cover and pictures:
CAPTIVE $ 7.50 (Book 1)(373 Pages)
Lionel Morgan, Earl of Denbigh, had been betrayed once at the alter and vowed that no female would ensnare him again. Then Charlotte Edgerton burst into his life. He was to be her guardian. Her protector. But Denbigh wasn’t prepared for his headstrong American—or the passions she inspired on first sight. He knew only that he had to civilize her, present her at court, and Almack’s, then marry her off to the highest bidder. It wasn’t until he nearly lost her that he realized the truth: She’d somehow reversed their roles and become the captor—of his heart.
