Es un libro muy ameno, en la línea de obras anteriores de la autora. Aunque se relatan situaciones que pueden resultar poco creíbles, se trata de una bonita historia de amor, con la dosis adecuada de enredo para mantenerte enganchada de principio a fin.

NO ES UN LIBRO PARA CONSERVAR. A LAS FANS DE JL PUEDE GUSTARLES. PERO NO ES REPRENSENTATIVO DE SU CALIDEZ LITERARIAL . NO HE VISTO ROMANCE

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Sadly disappointing... 18 de junio de 2011
Por Jessica - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
I too, am a fan of Johanna Lindsey and have noticed these past few years that the books being written have not been up to par with the earlier books. I have stopped rushing to buy the books on the first day released and this book was no exception. Except that I chose to read the reviews on it which gave me hope that this book was going to be at least better than the past ones so I went ahead and bought it.
Possible SPOILERS:
Unfortunately, I disagree with the reviews that claim this book has a better storyline. This book COULD have had a better storyline. The ground work was all set up for it to be great. But the book felt completely rushed and had a lot of plot holes in the storyline. First off, you have this assassin who is so amazing that he's never failed and he teaches Alana to think like one but they never considered that she would be doubted as the princess?? Especially when she was without proof? They also gave her all this training to defend herself...for nothing. Maybe this is just me, but I really did not like Alana, who I thought had the mindset of an adolescent girl. The falling in love was too rushed...just a couple of days. The big reveal at the end was almost comical just for the fact that they accused the person, one person said "Couldn't be!" and then the accused admits and explains why. Like it's that easy to get a confession.
And the most annoying part of the whole book is when Alana is finally introduced to the king and they finally know that she is his daughter...that within a day he's already selected a groom for her to marry and she meekly accepts it like the dutiful daughter?! That's ridiculous. And this is after he knows she's slept with the captain of his guard whom he trusts above all other people, especially to take care of his own daughter. That she might actually be carrying Christoph's baby. But instead of saying she should go ahead and marry him...no, give her to the other guy before she shows if she is pregnant, even though it most likely is one of his family trying to kill her. And then after the "big ending" the king is basically like how could he be so blind to see that Alana and Christoph are in love with each other and of course they will be married now...that there is no one he trust more to take care of his daughter.

Basically, I dislike this book above all others previously written. If you are like me and have to read the book because it's by Johanna Lindsey, at least wait until it's in paper back.

I usually measure how much I enjoy a book by how eager I am to finish them. If I am tired all week from reading into all hours of the night when I should be sleeping I know I've found a book that is worthy of the title of excellent. This book does not fall into that category since I basically had to force myself to finish it. If I had paid full cover price I might have been more upset but I can't seem to control myself from buying Lindsey's books right off of the press. Not unlike her last books I found it to be a boring and unoriginal plot. If you're a fan of the Malory books this does contain previous characters but since it is nothing compared to the exciting plots of her previous works you'd really have to be a borderline Malory stalker to gain any enjoyment out of this one.

Betrothed from young ages Richard and Julia are hard pressed to accept their engagement. Growing up hating his father Richard will do anything to try and thwart any plans his father has for him. Julia is a stubborn, willful child that always finds her violent side whenever she is around Richard. At seventeen Richard runs away from home and becomes a pirate and Julia is forced to wait for him to either marry her or find a way to get out of a marriage she doesn't want.

Nine years later Richard appears back in town following her best friend Gabrielle and her husband Drew (from previous book Captive of My Desires) to chase after a woman he is insistent his has fallen in love with, Georgina Malory (from Gentle Rogue). Using a false identity he meets Julia again and not knowing who she is he begins a seduction of her. Coincidentally Julia has decided to have Richard declared dead so she can move on with her life and find a new man to marry. They meet at a masked ball and Julia finds herself becoming intrigued by Richard's seductive ways.

What follows is pretty formulaic, they discover who each other is but find they cannot fight their inner attractions or anger towards one another. Obstacles are placed in the way of their courtship but it becomes pretty easy to predict the final outcome and the path that is taken to reach it.

Lindsey has lost her initial spark that made me want to read her books in one sitting. I didn't particularly like either of the two main characters and their eventual fall into love didn't seem real to me. The characters didn't even like each other a little bit but they were falling into each others' arms in anger and making love. Boring, cliched and unrealistic are the most appropriate adjectives I can think of to describe this book. If you have to read it wait until you can get a used copy. If you need a Lindsey fix then I would suggest re-reading or reading for the first time her works prior to those written in this century. Classic Lindsey cannot be beaten and I hope some of her books in the future will be as good as her older works.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Boring and unromantic 14 de junio de 2013
Por AmazonCustomer - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
One of the first romances I ever read was a JL. My keeper shelf has many of her books, and if I've read A Gentle Rogue once, I've read it fifty times, at least. But this new book, One Heart to Win, isn't a keeper for me. I skimmed a lot, and I mean a lot. I was bored and restless, very disinterested, and I almost decided to DNF it, but I hate to do that with a book. So I plodded along, and that's honestly what it felt like. There's no real excitement, no real action, no real romance. On finishing the book, I ended it without feeling any love for or about this couple.

I have no strong connection to Tiffany, who is really a blah heroine to me, nor do I feel I actually know or love the hero, Hunter, all that much either. He barely stands out in the story. He's really hardly there. For me, both h/H are missing depth and boldness and vibrancy. Where's the romance? Where's that quick dialogue and interaction showing and not telling me they have a connection with each other? I felt no connection to either Tiffany or Hunter, and I felt no chemistry or true passion between them. Not enough time is spent with them actually being together. I wanted more time together, more intimacy. Not necessarily more sex, but more intimacy. As for the sex/love scenes, they were very lacking. Just quick, vague and without any heart.

I wasn't that interested in the overall storyline and the whole reason for Tiffany's parents' separation. Really boring. And Tiffany's impersonation could have been more fun and interesting than it was. This story could have been amped up a lot more than it was. But really, the most disappointing thing about this book is the actual romance itself. I did not feel it. No genuine feeling of love or need; I had no feeling of urgency to see this couple kiss, or make love, or just look at each other and go to that deep place of forever. For me, there was no passion, no romance, and no investment. A big disappointment.

A generous 2.5 stars.

Like many others, I "grew up" reading Lindsey titles. I have many such classics in my book collection, and faithfully re-read those favorites time and again. But this "new" Johanna Lindsey frankly just ain't cutting it. I don't know if she's just writing on 'auto-pilot,' doesn't care enough about her products anymore, or if her new (okay, so maybe 8 years isn't "new") publishing contract stipulates that she produce barely-readable stories. Lindsey used to be THE standard for fabulous romance you could lose yourself in. Even though many of her books maintained the same storyline, her classic stories spanned historical romance (Feudal families, Western cowboys, countless pirates, you name it) to contemporary sci-fi.

I didn't hate 'That Perfect Someone,' but I didn't love the story, either. It was a quick, simple read with a lot of eye-rolling and skimming on my part. I really wanted to give this story a chance, but it felt like I was reading a draft that had been procrastinating on and hastily put together just the night before. How happened to this great writer?

Pros: I LOVED James Malory's involvement in the story - the connection between the two main characters and the Mallorys actually made sense. But how about a story about some real Malorys - Edward's children (Amy's siblings) are still available, aren't they? How about poor clueless Percy?!?! I also really liked the spunky heroine. The flashbacks when Richard and Julia were children (wow, talk about some mean kids!) were also really funny.

Cons: And then there was everything else in this story! Aside from the typos and printing errors in the book (which are completely inexcusable in a book that isn't even in the bargain bin - YET!!!), the story itself was 'whiney' and long-winded, just like the "hero" Richard. I've never read a hero that I'd like nothing more than to forget (despite the hot Russell Brand lookalike model on the cover)! I found it completely unbelievable that someone as young as Julia would be allowed as much freedom and power as she had, given the kind of money her family raked in. There was a line early on in the story when Gabrielle said "What the heck", and I'll be happy if I'm proved wrong, but I don't believe that phrase was common in Regency London!!! The Earl's and Charles' secrets and the twists at the end were just stupid and unnecessary. As a fan, I felt that the ending was like a slap in the face.

For readers who are die-hard Lindsey fans and have read every one of the 40+ books she's published, then this story is worth reading. Otherwise, you might think about skipping it entirely.

I've read all of Johanna Lindsey's books at least once, some of them more than that, and her more recent releases have left me feeling disappointed in a more rushed style of writing that was not worthy of her other books. That being said this new book renewed my faith in her as a writer, even if, as another reviewer suggested, she is using a ghost writer now.

Alana has been gently reared in England by a man thought to be her uncle so it comes as a surprise to her when, upon her 18th birthday, her "uncle" informs her that he is an assassin that was hired to kill her as an infant but was unable to. In addition she is the sole heir to the throne in Lubinia and in order to stop a war there she must go back and assume her rightful place as the princess. Being naive, Alana thinks that the kingdom of Lubinia will believe her but since they have been confronted with imposter princesses since she left rather than meeting the king she is shown to the jail and only allowed to meet the head of the guards, Christoph Becker. Even though Christoph doesn't believe her he still vows to protect her since she seems to believe the lies and there is a lot of intrigue surrounding the disappearance of the real princess.

I liked all of the characters involved in this book but the way they were written just didn't seemed familiar to me when compared to Lindsey's other works. It had some hints of her book "Once a Princess" but not enough to make it seem like it was written by the same author. Christoph was a very handsome male hero which seems to be lacking in a lot of books of late. The only complaint I have is that the ending seemed a bit rushed and the conclusion of what happened when Alana was an infant was glossed over quite quickly in the last pages-especially when so much groundwork was laid to create an intriguing subplot. Overall I would recommend this book to those looking for a light, quick, read on an otherwise boring day, they won't be disappointed.
