#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey delivers “first rate romance” (Daily News) in this sparkling, passionate tale of an earl’s daughter who must convince a mysterious viscount to marry her and end his vendetta against her brother.
One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder! With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the Prince Regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon’s heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.
Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister Brooke to his enemy’s remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he hadn’t expected his enemy’s sister to be so resourceful or resilient.
Brooke Whitworth has been dreaming of her first season in London because she intends to win a husband who will take her far away from her unloving family. Instead, she is being sent to the Yorkshire moors to wed a mysterious nobleman whose family is cursed and who has thrice tried to kill her brother. But there’s no room in her heart for fear; this man is her means of escape. She will make him love her!
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Romance powerhouse Johanna Lindsey’s treat of a novel puts a new twist on Beauty and the Beast. Isolated on the desolate moors of Yorkshire, debutante Brooke Whitworth finds herself engaged by royal decree to Lord Dominic Wolfe: a beastly man with zero interest in her. But Brooke’s determined to make her fiancé love her, since the alternative entails going back to her abusive family. With its brooding hero, Gothic atmosphere, and razor-sharp battle of wills, Make Me Love You reminded us of a more passionate, sensual Jane Eyre.

This book had it all, romance, secrets, good plot. It also showed their love of animals. They had more than their love for each other to bond them. It was nice to read about their pets too.
Make Me Love You
Awesome storyline that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the book!!
Expected More…Didn’t Deliver
I was very disappointed in the pace, characater development, and continuity of this story. I felt like Lindsey was working toward more intensity when developing Brooke’s back story, and then backed off. It was such an abrupt, pollyanna ending. This book really disappointing and made me feel like I had just wasted the rare and precious time I set aside for reading. I love historical romance because it can be light and fun, but it needs to have more craft than this story. Sorry Ms. Lindsey…I have enjoyed many of your stories in the past.
