I love Mary Balogh books. They are written about a romatic era and I think she is one of the best writers regarding the romantic era. The book is totally different from others I have read about this era. I really enjoyed it along with the rest of the series. Anyone who enjoys romance books will really enjoy this series.

"More Than a Mistress" is IMO a cut above the usual in the historical romance genre. Mary Balogh has been writing Georgian, Regency and Victorian romance novels for several years, yet always manages to come up with something fresh in her latest offerings. The book opens with a duel that is interrupted by our heroine, "Jane" Ingleby, who is on the lam in London, hiding from the father of the man she believes she has killed while defending her honor. Her shout of horror as she sees the two duelers ready to fire at each other in the public park causes our hero, Jocelyn Dudley, to suffer a severe wound to one leg. "Jane" moves into Jocelyn's house to nurse him, as she has lost her situation due to being late to work...all because of that duel!
The major strength of this book is the unveiling of the secrets of the heart: Jocelyn has had a very unhappy and unstable childhood and young adulthood even though he is a Duke. His artistic talents were a source of irritation to his father, who belittled him constantly, and his mother was distant and cold. After making "Jane" his mistress, he confides in her his deepest secrets and longings. But she, who won't even tell him her real name out of fear of being exposed as a murderess, keeps her secrets locked in her heart. Jocelyn's reaction when he discovers the "truth" is heart wrenching.
While the mystery is slight (most readers will have figured it out half way through the book) this character-driven novel will hold your attention from beginning to end. "Jane" may seem a little too modern to some readers because she is so well-educated -- but as a beloved only child of intelligent, titled parents she was obviously indulged and encouraged to stretch her intellect. Jocelyn can easily be seen as a romantic hero inspired by Byron and Shelley. All in all, a satisfying read!

This book is too good for words! It was so wonderful to watch while Jane slowly crumbled away the wall around Tresh's heart! What a beautiful story. And when he wept on her I was almost weeping as well. Any woman who can bring a big, manly giant like him down is a good woman indeed!! The only thing that really irked me was his name. Jocelyn..for a man? It was just sooo effeminate for a man whos father hated all things effeminate in his sons. Any time I saw his name, in my mind, I changed it to Tresh!! LOL But other than that, this book is wonderful, absolutely spellbinding! i couldnt put it down!

The Duke of Tresham is arrogant, reckless, bad-tempered, and often feared...except by Jane Ingleby. That fact alone both irritates and fascinates him. As he recuperates, she soon burrows into his heart, causing him to open up, and begin to clean out old, festering wounds.
And Jane thinks herself a fugitive from the law, and because she is actually a lady, she can never return to her former life after staying in his home as a servant--even if charges of murder and theft did not hang over her head. So Jane agress to become his mistress. Yet, Jocelyn (Tresh) senses that there is something wrong with the arrangement.
Jocelyn soon spends most of his free time with her and, in the process, continues to rediscover who he was meant to be. It's really beautiful. Balogh has such a gift for dealing with deep-seated human emotions and fears and pain. But they both has much to confront and overcome; "the course of true love never did run smooth." And so they hurt each other repeatedly before they grow and trust enough to make it work.
A beautiful story.

This is Mary Balogh's best book to date. The novel's strength lies in the relationship between the two protagonists and their witty, feisty dialogue. The plot is predictable, however, although it did not deter from my enjoyment of the story.
Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, is a rake who because of his numerous involvements with women, many of them married, finds himself fighting more duels than most. During one of these challenges the duel, with pistols, is disrupted when a young woman accidentally passing by the field of battle cries out and diverts Tresham's attention from the business at hand. Consequently he is shot in the leg. He is outraged at the interruption by a mere servant, a milliner's assistant. She loses her position because the duel makes her late for work and when she demands that Tresham write a note to explain her tardiness he insists that the she act as his nurse for the three week period of his convalescence.
The young woman is really not the servant, Jane Ingleby, but a lady, Sara Illingsworth, who has fled her home and guardian because she mistakenly believes she has killed a man while defending her honor. Tresham is drawn as much to Sara/Jane's strong character, spirit, intelligence and wit as he is to her beauty. And she, of course, falls for this handsome alpha male whom she refuses to allow to dominate her. Their growing relationship is a delight and Ms Balogh describes their love with great sensuality and humor.
The novel also deals with the enormous differences in social classes during the Regency period. This is a light read but one that is hard to put down because of the wonderful characters.
