Love Only Once is the story of Regina Ashton and Nicholas Eden. This is also the first book in the Malory series. The first book I read by Johanna Lindsey was a Malory Novel. I cannot remember exactly which one it was. I just know that I didn't read the series in order. I have decided to read these books from the beginning instead of mixed up.I knew the story of Regina (Regan or Reggie) and Nicholas Eden from the previous book that I read. Even though I was familiar with the story it was nice to read the actually book that started this wonderful introduction to the Malory family. Johanna Lindsey is a fantastic writer and I look forward to reading more of her books.Regina Ashton has been looking for a husband for about a year in London and in Europe. She is tired of looking and having her uncle's decide that the ones she decide on are not the ones they want her to marry. She finds her husband under very unlikely circumstances. She is abducted by Nicholas Eden when he thinks she is some one else. Nicholas is known as a confirmed bachelor and wastrel. I loved this story for many different personalities of Regina's uncles. They are very protective of their sister's daughter, their niece, Regina. They have raised Regina since her parents died in a fire. They treat her as if they were all her father and not just an uncle. That is one thing I love about the Malory family. The may tease each other but they truly do love everyone of their family members.
