One of Mary Balogh's best. If you love the regency period, you'll love this story of a man who falls in love with his mistress. No, she's not a hooker with a heart of gold but actually a "Lady" hiding from a false accusation of murder. She is beautiful and clever and he is her match. Enjoy!!
Mary Balogh is unsurpassed in writing intelligent Regency romances. In More Than a Mistress, she succeeds again. Complex, intriguing characterizations, interesting historical detail, and a good plot makes this book worth reading.
It was well written, felt rushed in spots. I wish I had read them in order (No Man's Mistress) I was entertained. Good read. Can't go wrong with a Balogh.
I have just began reading this book and have already been captivated and awed by Mary Balogh's intellect, flawless writing skill, and her way of putting you right there in the world of each and every character. You feel what they feel, see what they see and eagerly anticipate the next movement of the story. Each individual personality is so real and distinct from the other; and their interaction is interesting and believable.
I read one complete book of Mary Balogh and was hooked. It was one of her "Slightly" series. I liked it so much I could barely put it down. I later ordered on eBay all of the series of Slightly books.
There is not one thing that I dislike about Mary Balogh's books. They are highly recommended!
