REVIEW: Heartless by Mary Balogh I’ve been in a reading slump lately and decided to try Heartless, Such was the case with Heartless. 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. 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.

So much that I managed to warm up to him and really like him in the end. That actually made me laugh out loud, but I’m sure that wasn’t the intention And he’s got this long, black hair.

It is a wonderful moment when the truth of the situation becomes clear to Luke. Lucas keeps trying to get her to tell him, because he’s not crazy and can see that something is wrong.

Heartless — All About Romance

The review must be at least 50 characters long. As it later turns out, she manipulated both brothers, and the older one actually killed himself to get away from her. But did she do it? Not for me anyway. She has written more than one hundred historical novels and novellas, more than thirty of which have been New York Times bestsellers.

Ten years later, fate has brought him back home to England as head of the family who rejected him. This must be the equivalent of a psychological thriller, but Georgian style. At Last Comes Love.


Wow, I read this years ago and loved it but on re-read it was bad, just bad. I will admit though mmary there was the obnoxious trope of the man being skilled in the art of pleasing a woman, taught by the best of lovers and heartlesz teaches her how pleasurable sex can be.

Anna is as much a victim of family machinations as Luke is. Read it Forward Read it first. And I mean like a lot.

Anna meets Lucas, Duke of something or other, who has only recently returned to England after spending 10 years in Paris pouting over his butthurt feelings after he had a falling-out with his family about a duel with his brother. Balogh pours on more crazy sauce but doesn’t truly resolve some of the issues. I derive so much more satisfaction when a character reveals a secret out of a sense of loyalty and trust then withholds it because of fear.

Desert Isle Keeper

La historia tiene un poco de todo, amor, misterio, malos muy malos y una historia que no da tregua y que hace que quieras seguir leyendo She has written more than seventy novels and almost thirty novellas since then, including the New York Times bestselling ‘Slightly’ sextet and ‘Simply’ quartet.

Betrayed by his elder brother, rejected by his fiancEe, banished by his father, and shunned by his mother, Luke fled to Paris, where he became the most sought-after bachelor in fashionable society.


Since the Rosalyn Landor audio version is also available, I chose to listen rather than read. Balogh is otherwise consistently, if occasionally bland, for me.

I don’t read many romance novels but I have enjoyed some of them so don’t think me Heartless for my review. Henrietta should have been already thrown out of the house and told to everyone to not trust her. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading, music and knitting. I feel that their story will be a bit more compelling and that their personalities adhere more to the romantics trope. Write your own comment on this book! When they married, both Anna and Lucas were dreaming of happier futures.

I liked it at the beginning, there was a mystery to it, I was intrigued by the characters but it all went down in a moment, like a castle made of sand.

And sometimes he was so blind, stupid and cruel. I really dislike that particular trope, and find it mmary and lazy and infuriating.

Very arrogant and commanding as a duke is wont to be. This is not my cup of tea.

Dec 10, Corduroy rated it it was ok Shelves: Anna meets Lucas, Duke of something or othe Wow, I found this to be an annoying read.
