Every time I read or review a Balogh romance, I say the following: If Mary Balogh’s publisher made her back catalogue available $4 or less each, I would stockpile it.
Balogh writes Regency romances about sensible people finding love.
Themes: Love moves one out of one’s comfort zone, and one needs to in order to find a true and passionate match.
I’ve read a bunch of Balogh that I haven’t reviewed. She’s a prolific and reliable author.
The Slightly Series:
Slightly Married – no
Slightly Scandalous (Josh/Freya) – he’s fun, she’s a bit of a pill
Slightly Dangerous (Wulfric/Christine) CLASSIC
The Simply Series:
Simply Love – no recollection
Simply Perfect – sweet
The Survivors’ Club:
The Proposal (Hugo/Gwen) – pleasant
The Arrangement (Vincent/Sophia) – very sweet, understated
The Escape (Benedict/Samantha) – meh
Only Enchanting (Flavian/Agnes) – WONDERFUL, read this one. Read it twice. I have.
Only a Promise (Ralph/Chloe) – very good
Only a Kiss (Percy/Imogen) – nothing special
Only Beloved (George/Dora) – a sweet wrap up to the series
