This is a wonderful Mary Balogh. I laughed out loud in several places. The hero's sister is hilarious.

At times overly dramatic, MORE THAN A MISTRESS is nevertheless one of the most impressive historical romances I have ever read. Character development is sensational, the romance is sensual and believable, and overall the whole story is simply unforgettable.

I absolutely adored how there wasnt insta-love/lust/attraction between Jane and Tresham. Instead, both of them dislike each other upon first meeting, though their respective stubbornness keeps them clashingand, thus, crossing pathsagain and again. Tresham acts arrogant, but you still cant help but liking him, understanding his arrogance as a product of his upbringing. Jane feels a little more generic, as the heroine with the modern sensitivities everyone just wished existed back in the days, but she has undeniably chemistry with Tresham, and goes about trying to solve her troubles in a very respectable way.

I typically like my historical romances straight to the romance point, so I was a little less believing of the whole dueling/wanted for murder plotline, but overall, Tresham and Jane were definitely enough for me to keep plowing through this book. This is my first historical romance by Mary Balogh, but if its any indication of her other works, it certainly wont be my last.

A well thought out plot and engaging hero and heroine. I was disappointed in the ending, though, since it didn't explain how they worked out their differences. They were just suddenly married and happy.
