Publisher's Summary

In this captivating novel, Mary Balogh, the premier writer of Regency romance, invites you into a world of scandal and seduction, of glittering high society and intrigue, as an arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.

She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. But Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

Jane tried to pretend it was strictly business, an arrangement she was forced to accept in order to conceal a dangerous secret. Surely there was nothing more perilous than being the lover of such a man. Yet as she got past his devilish façade and saw the noble heart within, she knew the greatest jeopardy of all, a passion that drove her to risk everything on one perfect month with the improper gentleman who thought love was for fools.

    "Good Read"

    I liked the book but did find that it dragged at places. I'd subconciously be thinking well get on with it. But this didn't happen so often so it wasn't that much of a problem. Overall I did enjoy the book. But wasn't the rivoting read I was looking for.

    Story
    "slow"
    What did you like best about More than a Mistress? What did you like least?

    I liked how the marriage was revealed. It was a surprised. I hated how he treated her when he found out the truth about her. He really upset me!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Balogh again?

    No, I tried two other book by her. I really don't like her style of writing, Her stories are always too slow to start and she adds way too much un-wanted details.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The out coming at the end.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Less details.

    "An Enjoyable Journey Back to Chivalry"

    I always like novels from this era but enjoyed this one more than most. It deserves it's high rating. The story was well written with a some suspense and a few surprises. It was good enough that I immediately bought the subsequent book.

    "Surprisingly compelling. Recommended!!"

    The name and cover make this seem like a different type of book. There's sexy scenes, but the story is a "page turner". Great book. Worth the time and money!

    Reviews complaining about the narrator are blasphemy!! Rosalyn Landor is a pro for historical romance!! She's fantastic and narrates most of the truly excellent novels of the genre.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book even though I'm not really into romance novels. It helped that it was written in a different era. So if you like romance novels set in historical times, you'll enjoy this. Well written.
