On the page, romantic ardor was evident in scenes such as one from “A Loving Scoundrel” (2004) — one of her 12 novels about the Malory clan — between Jeremy Malory, “a handsome rakehell,” and Danny, a young woman who is a servant in his home:

“‘God, you taste good!’

“She’d been thinking the same thing. His lips were so velvety soft. His breath wasn’t fumed with alcohol at all, was rather heady in scent. His taste was exotic, beyond her ability to describe. And she was feeling things other than the kiss, delightful sensations, all new to her, all highly pleasant.”

Stories built around romantic and sexual surrender — between arrogant, willful men and heroines with little power from centuries past — descended at times into rape.

Johanna Helen Howard was born on March 10, 1952, in Frankfurt, where her father, Edwin, was stationed in the Army, and she moved to the United States when she was about 5. Her mother was Wanda (Castle) Howard. The family eventually settled in Hawaii, where Johanna attended intermediate and high school.

Best - selling romance novelist , Johanna Lindsey , dies after losing her battle with stage 4 lung Johanna Lindsey lost battle with Stage 4 lung cancer on October 27; she was 67 The prolific romance writer authored nearly 60 titles throughout 40-year career romance novelist , Johanna Lindsey , who was battling Stage 4 lung cancer, has died .

She started work in a data processing program but left it when she married Ralph Lindsey. By the mid-1970s, she had begun to believe she could write romance novels, and sent a proposed chapter to Avon Books, where Ms. Rodgers and Ms. Woodiwiss were published.

“Three weeks later they asked for the whole book and six weeks after that they accepted it with only one change,” Ms. Lindsey told The Honolulu Star-Bulletin in 1981.

In 1977, Avon published the book “Captive Pride,” which she followed over the next four years with “A Pirate’s Love,” “Brave the Wild Wind,” “Fires of Winter” and “Paradise Wild.”

“I don’t know what I’d be doing if I didn’t have my writing,” she told The Star-Bulletin. “I haven’t even had a vacation in a long time. It’s been 17 years since I’ve been out of Hawaii.”

By 1990, she was writing two books a year; each of her 19 had then sold at least 700,000 copies. Avon rewarded her regular presence on best-seller lists with a 10-book contract.

“That means I’ll have a super leader twice a year for the next five years,” Carolyn Reidy, Avon’s president, told The New York Times in 1990.

In 2001, having written 37 best sellers, Ms. Lindsey left Avon for Simon & Schuster.

Liz Perl, the marketing director of Simon & Schuster, said that Ms. Lindsey was a shy, private person who only occasionally toured to promote her books.

“On several occasions, her mother would accompany her, which was really sweet,” Ms. Perl said by phone. “Her mother was quite outgoing, so Johanna would sign the books, and her mom would stand next to her and tell fans anecdotes about Johanna when she was young.”

She added, “When she turned her books in, she wouldn’t celebrate by buying a car or going to Paris, but by buying a video game and playing it for 12 hours before starting her next book.”

Ms. Lindsey had lived in New Hampshire in recent years.

In addition to her son Alfred, Ms. Lindsey is survived by two other sons, Garret and Joseph, and four grandchildren. Her husband died in 1994.

Ms. Lindsey recalled that she conceived the idea for “Captive Bride,” her first novel, years before she submitted that first chapter to Avon.

“Desert sheikh, romance, kidnapping — that’s about all I started with,” she told The Star-Bulletin. “I just sat down one day and wrote the middle scene, the love scene in the tent. I amazed myself — I couldn’t stop writing.”
