Lord Johnnie (first review)

Lord Johnnie - Leslie Turner White

One of the very first historical "romances" I ever read, and still one of my very favorites. A classic swashbuckler in the tradition of Alexandre Dumas and Rafael Sabatini Lord Johnnie recounts the adventures of a handsome London outlaw, variously calling himself "Johnnie the Rogue" or "Lord Johnnie," in the 1760s. Scheduled to hang for his crimes, he is thus a convenient short-term spouse for the lovely Lady Leanna Somerset, who hopes her debts will die along with him at Tyburn. To her dismay, Johnnie is deftly rescued and set on a course of reluctant heroism and redemption. . . and romance.
