A couple of years ago I picked up Heartless, the first book I had ever read by Mary Balogh and went into the lost-in-a book zone. I went to work. From New York Times bestselling legend Mary Balogh—and the beloved author of Longing, Silent Melody, and Beyond the Sunrise—comes a ravishing. Heartless, first published in , was a new venture for me. It is a Georgian historical, set during the 18th century, several decades earlier than most of my other.

The only thing interesting about him was that the book is set in the lateth century and he is a dandy in the French style: Anna Marlowe marries Lucas Kendrick, Duke of Harndon, knowing that he will heartess love her, to escape from a man from her past But in their hearts, their dreams would never die You can read the rest of this review at AudioGals.

She’s got a couple of other ones with Christmas in the title, but I don’t think I’ve read those.

Most everyone else seems to really like her books so I’ll have to try, but, sheesh, not this one. I’m always pleased to see more of Mary Balogh’s back list coming out in Kindle editions — the latest being her Georgian series from the mids. Stay in Touch Sign up. Mad About the Major. Buy from our partners. Overall for me this book is enjoyable on every level, and I highly recommend it.


I’ve not read any Balogh books, but picked up something that was offered for free a while ago. ,ary, it was not an easy read, it includes some suspense with a serious issue and it built tension and made story more excited for me.

Inspired by Your Browsing History. LOL, I really did let it rip, didn’t I? I loved that about him. Life has taught Lucas Kendrick, Duke of Harndon, that a heart is a decided liability.

I really want to read Ashley and Anna’s sister’s story She had problems, I know, but she was so lost in self-pity I wanted to vomit. Want to Read saving…. Blogh had like 20 gazillion opportunities to tell him what’s going on and ask for his help and protection. He really pissed me! Mayr was also a possessive, sexual element, but instead of making her his mistress, he kidnapped her and had his servants tie her to the bed and remove her hymen.

Its hero, Lucas Kendrick, left England a decade earlier following a heart-breaking betrayal and its terrible aftermath, and has since made a life for himself in Paris. Inshe retired from teaching after 20 years to pursue her dream to write full-time. No Other Duke Will Do. Don’t quote me, though.

Let me say up front, this is one of my top 5 ever HR favs, and I’ve read it probably six or so times over the years since Heartlezs first bought that pretty paperback copy. Ya estoy deseando coger la segunda parte. That was odd for me at first.


Desert Isle Keeper

Unfortunately, 20 years after its release it felt very dated and old-fashioned, and I thought it highlighted what I always thought was Balogh’s worst tendency: Some Like It Scot. And of course, they have skanky villain sex. Lucas–the best duke ever written in romance novels.

The heroine of this book and balovh one thing ruined this entire book for me.

Heartless — All About Romance

Looking for More Great Reads? I love the books where the couple gets married early and has to get to know each other, and mray watch their love grow heaartless the course of the book.

Their marriage begins very inauspiciously. For years he had refused to feel love, but he was captivated by Anna’s beauty and her rustic innocence. I liked to read hero’s transformation from cold man to compassionate brother, father and last lover.
