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.

I loved this book. Lucas was one unique for me hero. He is a bonafide dandy, but very much a man. That was odd for me at first. I haven’t read as many Georgians, so the spiffied up, lace-bedecked, bewigged, powered, high-heel wearing hero was a different thing for me. But this man makes it look good. And he’s got this long, black hair. Okay back to the review: He is rather ruthless, but at the same time, is a good husband for tormented Anna.
He makes mistakes but manages to l I loved this book. He makes mistakes but manages to love her and to help her baloogh heal. I love the scene where they meet. Their eyes connect across the ballroom floor. Anna is not ugly, but is rather modest in her looks, but something about her appeals to Lucas. He pursues her very determinedly, and desperate to escape her situation, and swept off her feet by this handsome, sought-after duke, Anna quickly says yes to his proposal. Anna was in a terrible situation that marriage to Lucas helped her to balovh.
But now she has to deal with a husband who thought she played him false. Boy that scene was pretty hot that makes me balogj kind of guilty to say that, but it was.
Her prior situation keeps threatening to destroy her marriage, and she is counting down the time until it does. You really feel for her, and you wish for her to open up to Lucas about her issues, but balgoh afraid to.
And Lucas takes that to mean she’s likely heartlrss be another faithless wife. It’s a complicated situation, but Ms. Balogh writes it so well. I love the books where the couple gets married early and has to get to know each other, and you watch their love grow ehartless the course of balobh book. This marriage starts off a bit rocky, but I baloyh how committed both of them are to the marriage.
Lucas sowed his wild oats with other men’s wives, but he is committed to fidelity with his own. That made me hearltess him more not the sleeping with other married women before his marriage, but his willingness to be faithful to Anna.
He’s a great reformed rake. Very arrogant and commanding as a duke is wont to be. They are raised for it.
Rosario’s Reading Journal: Heartless, by Mary Balogh
Lucas–the best duke ever written in romance novels. It’s probably pretty clear that this is still my favorite Mary Balogh novel.
I hope she writes more like this. If you know of some that are similar, please let me know. Lucas is such a great dad. I love how he’s always carrying around his baby daughter. Something about daddy heroes for me. Those are my favorite scenes in the book. This is a book that could be reread many times and I doubt it would get old. When I went home for Christmas, I saw that my mother had found my copy of this wonderful book. I was so happy. It was like another Christmas present!

Written November 3, 3 Stars – Nice but never fab A historical romance by Mary Balogh can never be completely wrong. Not for me anyway. A good feeling when I started this 14 hrs audiobook narrated by Rosalyn Landor a genre favorite but I’m must admit this wasn’t one of Balogh’s better. Felt a bit corny and got a bit both longish and boring to be honest. No, Heartless wasn’t more than just good enough for me. I LIKE – good pro narrators. View all 23 comments.

En realidad es una novela que no pasa entretenida. No soy de leer muchas novelas en las que los protagonistas parecen marj femeninos, maquillados y con postizos y eso me ha hecho mucha gracias. Dos protagonistas con un pasado muy marcado. No es de las mejores novelas de la autora, y se queda en entretenida. View all 16 comments.
Nov 27, Iliada rated it it was ok Shelves: Probably the worst heroine. Even though this is practically my first Mary Balogh book apart from a novella of hers I’ve read and lovedI can see this writer has talent and I will try more of her books but this one didn’t work for me.
I liked it at the beginning, there was a mystery to it, I was intrigued by the characters but it all went balkgh in a moment, like a castle made of sand. The title, Heartless, goes to the hero. Because of a family drama, he was cast away from his family at the age of 20 and lived alone in France for 10 years. Now he’s back because his brother, who was a Duke, died and Luke is in charge of the family and the dukedom marh. However, in order to heartlexs from the past drama and bxlogh exile he was practically forced into, he had to teach his heart how not to love.
Now don’t get me wrong, Heartlses feel for him, I sympathize with his troubles and everything but it was all just too much sometimes. He had a sister and a younger brother and he had to do some things to help them view spoiler [like he had to scare away his sister’s fiance when he realised he was after her money and he wasn’t really in love with her hide spoiler ] but, boy, he couldn’t have handled things in a worse way.
It would have been so easy to explain the whole situation but he just let his brother and sister assume the heartles instead! And sometimes he was so blind, stupid and cruel. He really pissed me! Plus, he was a dandy, oh please!
He wore heels and extravagant clothes, he powdered his hair, he carried a fan! This is not a hero that I find attractive.
Surprisingly, he improved in the second half of the book. And I mean like a lot. So much that I managed to warm up to him and really like him in the end. The heroine on the other hand. She had problems, I know, but she was so lost in self-pity I wanted to vomit. heaetless
Heartless — All About Romance
She was supposed to be a brave woman, but all I ever saw was a coward. She had a dark secret in her past and she needed the hero’s help. As I said, the hero was a Duke, so you would think he would be able to help her.
