Johanna Lindsey Message Board

Needless to say, you despised Ophelia because Johanna wanted you to. I think this is a new departure for her...previously, her heroines had a good reason for what they did. Even in "Prisoner of My Desire," she ravishes him in order to save her family by providing an heir.
Now it seems Johanna is going for a reworking of "The Taming of the Shrew," and I am not sure I am crazy about the idea, especially since she had stopped writing discipline fiction in the past few years. But it was always successful for her and you can't argue with success.

I might have to skip this one. I liked Raphael, but I despised Ophelia. I do not want to read about her having a happy ending because she doesn't deserve it. Blech.

With her trademark wit, memorable characters, and passion-filled stories, it’s no wonder that Johanna Lindsey has more than sixty million copies of her books in print. Now, listeners will be captivated by the story of charming Rafe Locke and beautiful but sharp-tongued Ophelia Reid – enthralling characters introduced in Lindsey’s The Heir. Raphael Locke is not only devilishly handsome but he is also wealthy beyond measure. He instantly dislikes social climber Ophelia Reid, the beautiful but scheming daughter of an earl. When a friend claims that Ophelia will never be anything other than an ill-tempered but lovely spinster, Rafe accepts the challenge of turning her into a kind lady who will one day make a good match for an eligible gentleman. Rafe takes Ophelia and his elderly aunt who will serve as chaperone to his estate in the countryside. Ophelia is furious and suspicious of his motives, but Rafe, who patiently persists in showing her the errors of her ways, learns the surprising reasons for Ophelia’s bad behavior. Once she has redeemed herself, Rafe champions her in London society, where in no time Ophelia begins receiving one marriage proposal after another. So why is Rafe suddenly filled with regret despite the overwhelming success of her transformation…could it be that he himself has fallen for this lovely minx? Adult Fiction.

Thank you babe for the answer! His character reminded me of her best work, and that was when I started reading the Malory adventures. There was wit, humour and banter. I preferred it that way without the straight up dry drama.
But I never complain. It is all good.

I've read that book, and I think he his charcter was much better then the hero (in my humble opinion). Nope, she hasn't written a book about him that I know of, but hopefully she will.

Hi everyone, okay I just finished reading this book and I loved the character Raphael Locke. I wanted to know if Johanna Lindsey was able to spin his story (with Ophelia?), anyway if any of you have any information for me, I would love to hear about it. Thanks, enjoy your day.

I have heard rumors that JL wrote under a different name. Anyone know what name it was? I love her books and would like to find out her alias.
