That being said, when I do read historical romance novels, I rarely, if ever, read Johanna Lindsey's work. The reason for this is that I have picked up one or two that read almost like a grade school reading primer and it just drove me nuts to attempt to read those books. However, Say You Love Me is nothing like those novels and I was definitely glad of it.
The main characters, Derek Malory and Kelsey Langton are the perfect foils for each other. The manner in which they meet is a unique situation to be sure, and frankly, I was refreshed that it was not your typical boy-meets-girl-and-falls-in-love-immediately type of deal. While you do eventually come to realize that Derek loves Kelsey, it isn't obvious and that is a refreshing change from the normal.
There are subplots present in the book which make for intrigue regarding the previous books (this is the 5th in the Malory series and the first of the Malory novels I have read) and any books that came after this book. I am definitely interested in finding the other Malory novels and seeing what they have to offer.
