(Unofficial) Johanna Lindsey News!

When Passion RulesSo, FantasticFiction is BOSS!! #That's NOT all.
I use the site all the time and while looking up a favauthor, I stumbled upon some unofficial-ish developments. To the right is the cover to Lindsey's upcoming June release, 'When Passion Rules'. I got this pic off of the books amazon page that was linked on it's fantasticfiction page (audio book edition -which seems to have more info than the regular paperback, hardcover and kindle pages).
If this is how the paperback/hardcover will come out, I can't complain. Hot guy-back with a decent rump and imperial looking clothes on a chair. Has a nice feel to it, no?

And it's Johanna Lindsey.....I REALLY can't complain. I am hoping this latest book from her will wow like she usually does for me. (Last year, she released 'That Perfect Someone' and in my review, I let you guys know some things that didn't work for me.) I really want to fall in love again like I use to do when my TBR pile was filled with Lindsey's books (I've since read most, so I am in need or some more!).

There was also a blurb on the fantasticfiction and (audio book) amazon page. Here's the blurb:
"Assassin Leonard Kastner agrees to commit an abhorrent crime for an astronomical sum – kill the infant heir to the European kingdom of Lubinia. Just as he is about to carry out the heinous deed, the baby awakens…and smiles at him. Losing his heart to tiny Alana Stindal, Leonard sweeps her out of their homeland to safety in England where he conceals her true identity from her and gives her an education fit for a queen. Eighteen years later, when the king of Lubinia faces a revolt because he has not produced another legitimate heir, Leonard knows he must take Alana home to prevent a civil war. But at the Lubinian palace no one believes Alana is the missing princess. Christoph Becker, the captain of the palace guards, arrests Alana because he suspects she is a pretender or a seductive assassin. When the king recognizes Alana as his long-lost daughter he proudly betroths her to the one man he believes is capable of protecting her and eliminating the shadowy figures who are determined to destroy his dynasty – Christoph Becker."Source

Sounds like it's going to be a great book! Idk why I am getting Les Miserable/Anastasia sort of feel. Looks like this will be very historical fiction-ish than straight romance because we have the intriguing back story of the Assassin and trying to prove the identity of Alana. I hope it's not just squeezed into a super long prologue, because I think I want to read the back story almost as much as the romance part with Christoph!

(Finding info on Lindsey is like trying to find an ugly picture of Henry Cavill. Next to impossible She's an OG! lol. She doesn't have (or need) an official website, facebook, or anything else to keep us readers instantly updated. She just send her books to Simon and Schuster (who have published a few of her more current books through imprint-Gallery books) and we all just bow down and buy them, (or at least I do.) Like I said, I am really looking forward to this book which will be out June 15th, 2011!)



  1. I have loved Johanna Lindsey since I started reading romance. I think I missed her last one, but this one sounds really good. I can't wait!

  2. It's not bad at all, just not the amazing I am use to. Check it out if you get the chance. Chances are your local library might have it!

    I like when Lindsey does the far away lands type of books. It's cool because it is purely her imagination were seeing and it's lovely. I can't wait to learn more about Lubinia!

  3. I loooove Johanna Lindsey and this one sounds awesome! I haven't read many of her newer ones because they just didn't have the flair of her older ones, but this one does sound a bit fantastical and full of romance, intrigue and family drama. Can't wait ;)

  4. I wantz this book - thank you for the headsup!!!

  5. @The Queen B, I love her too! I haven't dugged her newer ones that much either. Obviously I am obsessed with the Mallory's and her older fairy tale-equse books, but I am hoping for some new Lindsey classics!

    @Has, ditto on the wantz (with a Z!) When you get it, make sure you stop back by or send me an email or tweet with your thoughts! I think I may put a countdown on my sidebar, cause this is one of my anticipated releases for the year!

    Happy Reading Dolls!

  6. I love me some Lindsey! She is a auto buy for me! Love all the Mallory books! My favorite is The Magic of You! It's complete awesomesause! This book looks different and might be a refreshing read from her! Thanks for the post and heads up!

  7. I always enjoyed Lindsey's books. She was one of my first auto buy's when I started reading back in the 80's and she was releasing twice a year. This one does sound like it could be good (her last few have been a little more hit or miss for me - not bad, just not as good as I'd come to expect) but I'll prob wait till it comes in paperback next winter before picking up.

  8. I just love Johaana Lindsey, I buy all her books and reread them all the time. I can't wait til this new one comes out. I will be in line on June 15th. A late birthday gift to myself but will keep me busy for a day or so. My family knows I am busy when I buy her books(haha) I am soo glad we have her writing books,She is one of the reason I started to love reading in school thank you Johanna and her fans!
