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.

I feel that those pages could have been better spent explaining how their past has so impeded their futures. There is a sequel called Silent Melody which is about Emily and Ashley, but unfortunately it’s nowhere near as good a book as this one IMO.
But I think the real power in it is the saving of the delightful Anna from her horrid former life, and the redeeming of Luke himself.
No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Apr 04, Gilgamesha rated it did not like it. Instead from the middle on I just thought Anna was a silly woman that was deceptive for only her own selfish reasoning especially after having a baby.
First, there was Anna, the heroine. In the end it all just seemed very predictable and heargless is a shame because if this story was done right it could have been a five star read.
It starts out a light, cheerful, and fun opposites-meet and meddling-parents story, with better prose than some of Balogh’s earlier works, and then it goes straight into dark and dubcon, with a alphahole hero who of course, this is romance mostly gets over the jerkass but not over the controlling and over the sense that the world revolves around him.
Books by Mary Balogh. I love how Balogh allows Lucas to work through the feelings he has for Henrietta and doesn’t just assume his devotion and love for Anna are enough to quench all the feelings of his past,and yet he stays completely faithful to her.
She had a dark secret in her past and she needed the hero’s heattless. She was forever miserable, but wore a mask.

They do plan to keep on living together but the trust is gone. This started out so well. That is the entire book. When he and Heartlesx have their first child, a daughter, instead of bemoaning the fact that she is not the heir, he responds to the baby with total love and devotion and names her Joy because he is so happy.
Lucas is such a great dad.
Life has taught Lucas Kendrick, Duke of Harndon, that a heart is a heartlless liability. Fans of intense historical romances. She was the most miserable person I’ve ever read about! This had potential to be a great slow-burn romance but ended up such a torture. Balogh’s are a particular favorite of mine. Dos protagonistas con un pasado muy marcado. The Tempting of Thomas Carrick. Luke was harshly kicked out by his family at the tender age of twenty, and built a shell around his emotions in order to survive.
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.
Heartless (Georgian, #1) by Mary Balogh
Anna’s Big Secret, however, heartless dragged out too long, altho 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. However, there is never a moment when the reader or Lucas!
But I DID get irritated by the text incessantly informing me that he was outstandingly Masculine all the same.
The Earl Takes All. How can this be? Audiobook Details Recorded Books, Inc. I also thought the heroine was too stupid to live.
I don’t particularly like an HR hero who wears make up and heroine who is too secretive. The hero was a heartlews so you would think that there would have been some confidence that he would have been able to help her, but all she had confidence in, was being a doormat for the villain.
All those add up to OK but only for the beginning and Lucas at the balobh. Not Always a Saint. Ok, I’ll kill him for you.
The cultural aspects of love and romance were also different, which was interesting. Since she has grown to love her husband deeply, she is frightened of his reaction if learns the truth about her.
