This was my very first Mary Balogh novel and I LOVED it! I literally could not put it down. Clean house? Do laundry? Cook dinner? Naaaaaa :-)
One thing I very much enjoyed about this book was the LACK of over-the-top explicit steamy love scenes which I usually end up skipping through in other romance novels. This book did include a couple of love scenes, but they were not pages and pages long, nor were they embarrasingly unrealistic and over-the-top. I am NOT a prude, but a romance novel should be about ROMANCE, not sex, something many authors today seem to forget.
If you read this novel and do not fall in love with the Marquess of Attingsborough...I fear there is no hope for you. :-) Read it, you'll love it.
I am now off to find more novels by Mrs. Balogh...

This is one of my favorite Mary Balogh books; I seem to most love the quality Regency romances in which the hero is not a rake but a man of real integrity and devotion. Simply Perfect and Simply Love are two of Mary Balogh's best novels in this regard -- very heartfelt, and difficult to put down. Two other favorites by Balogh - One Night for Love, and Irresistible.

Another excellent read by on of my favorite authors.A beautiful tale of how "grief can lead to love".
