I have not tried this author before. Thank u. Balogh does heart-wrenching and farce very well. Not in same books! Yay Mary Balogh!
Only a Kiss
She has an occasional dud I threw Then Comes Seduction across the room and never finished it , but her books are always warm and affectionate and her heroes very often have Feelings they are unafraid to express. She also does lovely joyful Christmas romances. Should get this one from the library tomorrow! My TBR just grew by leaps and bounds. Thanks for such a thoughtful review Elyse!
What a great review, this reminds me I need to get caught up on this series. Mary Balogh is such a great writer, I think of her books as being emotionally complex in a very quiet way.
Glad you finally discovered her Elyse, enjoy that large backlist you found!
Only a Promise by Mary Balogh
Ahhhh yes, Mary Balogh is one of my insta-buys. Balogh is incredibly talented at creating two unique characters and finding a deep connection between them to build a love story around. One of my absolute favorite authors. Only a Promise hit my doorstep yesterday as I have to read her in print. Hoping this weekend will give me some quiet reading time to savor this book, especially after reading your review.
The Escape is my favorite so far. Elyse, I envy you having so many Mary books to discover! I actually detoured on my way to a meeting to buy this today after your post reminded me it was out. All I can say is I envy anyone who is just beginning with Balogh. There are so many hours of reading pleasure ahead. I am almost finished Only A Promise first reading, have to read each one twice to savor.
I found Balogh a few years ago because of recommendations on this site, for which I am profoundly grateful. Mary Balogh is on my must read list. Like you I read one book several years ago and promptly went on a Balogh binge. Glad to know her newest is out.
This one sounds great. Nice review Elyse! Mary Balogh has written some of my favorite romances. No none can make me laugh and cry like Mary Balogh…. I envy you. Great review, will try to pick this up asap, you reminded me why I always love sitting down with a balogh book. There is something so rewarding about the slow burn and people who are mostly aware of their feelings and why they have them.
Loved the review — I started the Survivor Club series based on reviews here at the bitchery and this one is making me think about knocking out Numbers so I can get it first! The laughter, because characters that can make you laugh are characters that are real.
Real people are hysterical. The crying, because characters and situations that make you cry are ones that you can identify with. Mary Balogh could make Sherlock empathize. Balogh is my all-time favorite author and really the only author left that I auto buy the hardback. Great review Elyse. I felt disquiet about the early sex scenes, because I thought they showed Ralph in a poor light. She was. And yet he took her virginity with absolutely no preparation for her.
Then he revelled in their physical closeness during the night which allowed him to sleep? But gave nothing back? I know that Chloe was happy because she wanted babies, but I think he could have invested at least a little attention to her needs. Other than that, I loved Chloe. Loved, loved the scene with her hair. And I came to love Ralph. The scene with him sobbing in her arms is very powerful. My only other reservations are with the pages and pages of declamatory conversations although the ones between Chloe and Ralph about war and pacifism are great and the cover, with a gorgeous design but a picture of Chloe without her flaming RED hair.
Mary Balogh is a fabulous author, which is not to say that she never misses. The best ones include some of the Bedwyn saga the six in the Slightly series and, even more, the four in the Simply series.
Simply Love is one of the very, very best. My personal favorites are The Arrangement and Only Enchanting. I finally read the 1st Bedwyn book last week.
Balogh is a goddess of the romance genre and my favorite author. I envy you, Elyse and all the others on this thread, who will be discoving her books for the first time! This is such a well written review! Great review—I loved this book! Mary Balogh is probably my all-time favorite.
Ah, Wulfric…. Oh Mary Balogh! She is my author-to-go when in need of a good cry or emotionally satisfactory romance. Try Simply Love!! Great review — I just finished reading the book for the second time and I fully agree with your assessment — Only a Promise is pure awesomesauce.
Ralph was 18 when he went to war, then was emotionally walled off from the rest of the world thereafter. Now he is 26—from my POV, he actually had rather limited experience with women. He cannot do what he does not know.
See a Problem?
But once they reach another level of intimacy in their lives, I wish Balogh had spent more time with their bedroom activities. Disappointing for me. So much that it kept me from feeling more for the characters.
And when the hero discovers that as inevitably happens in a Balogh book he is passionately in love with the heroine, I was a little taken aback, because I had, up until that point, seen little evidence of this passion. Again, the story was good, but not a keeper for me by any means. The Survivors Club is not the Balogh I would start with! Everyone has their favorites. Mine is More than a Mistress. That one is a keeper!
She has an amazing body of work, and continues to put out top quality writing, for decades now. And yet her books are not formulaic, and she breaks the conventions of the genre as she pleases. Just one of her works that totally breaks romanceland rules is Dancing with Clara. The behaviour of the H post-marriage, is absolutely ghastly, and even as the HEA is unrolled he declares that he is not able to promise he will stay sober or faithful.
And yet, Balogh makes the HEA convincing. Many of her readers hate this story, but I found myself awed with her seductive talent!
Dallas Itt seemed to me that Ralph knew very well what to do, as evidenced by his proficiency, once it suited him. If that had not been the case, one would have expected mutual exploration to have led to more enjoyment. Instead, greater pleasure happens at his direction. I acknowledge, however, that your interpretation is very possible. They were good, but then I read A Precious Jewel. That was all it took for me to start devouring them.
I just finished the Bedwyns including the two prequels last night, and oh, I wish I could go back and read them as a new reader all over again. Thank goodness my library has many of them in ebook format, or I would be broke! Hi Elyse, thank you for this review. I bought the ebook yesterday based on your recommendation and i loved it! At the same time, the novel tracks the pair of Bristol police investigators trying to get to the bottom of this hit-and-run.
As they chase down one hopeless lead after another, they find themselves as drawn to each other as they are to the frustrating, twist-filled case before them. I Let You Go junglebook.
