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. 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.

Listener Opinions

    " Would have been a really great book if not for the weak ending and the young duke's strange obsession with his quizzing glass. Props, though, to Balogh for setting up enough material to sustain a book of this length. "

    " Pet peeve- hero not attractive "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 1/15/2014

    " OH MY GOD!!! I LOVED this book & I completely fell in love with Jocelyn (minus his name LoL). In my opinion, he is a PERFECT example of alpha male. He is arrogant, brooding, "bored", brawny, & likes to fight. That's just his crunchy candy coating though! On the inside he is capable of opening up, honesty, extreme bouts of sensitivity, has a knack for art, is not opposed to communication, & the things that he says to express his love for Jane make my knees weak. Jane is also, in my opinion, the PERFECT heroine. She has a sharp tongue, bravado, feisty, willing to stand up for herself, & able to get oh so sexy Jocelyn to open up by using her patience & listening skills. This book was fabulous. Outside of Jane Austen & JK Rowling I am not prone to giving a book 5 stars. This one definitely has it! Oh Jocelyn ::swoons:: "

    " i really really liked the story and even Jane and Treshman are sooo cool characters ! it just had some erotic moments .. and i think it was so erotic that i would not recommend it for young people ! "

    " I don't know how it happens, Mary Balogh makes the craziness in this mess of a plot work. I am actually looking forward to the second in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Goodnight | 7/16/2013

    " Mary Balogh does a superb job of crafting a love story that truly delves into the motivations of the characters derived from their past history. Who can resist falling in love with Jocelyn & Jane's story? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danette Steward | 6/26/2012

    " Loved the premise. Book moved along nicely, but dragged close to the end. Were you all surprised at the ending? Kind of strange...but nice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Slavena | 7/19/2011

    " This came up on Audible with one of my favorite narrators Rosalyn Landor, loved listening to the story. The heroine is a spitfire and the dialogue between H/H was great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jerelyn | 2/4/2011

    " I suppose that it is impossible to like everything an author writes, I find that the case with More Than a Mistress by Mary Balogh. Not that I can point to any one thing it just failed to spark for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Smithies | 12/28/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 7/30/2010

    " I might edit this down a bit anon -- can't give all my Balogh re-reads 5 stars can I but I do so love this book. One quibble: I wanted a more romantic ending and as much as I enjoyed her epilogue, that's not what I was looking for. I wanted the convo AFTER she told him she was with child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 5/28/2010

    " Wonderful story. I found the first half pretty intriguing and the second half a bit obvious, but nevertheless a fun book and I am excited to read the next "mistress" book from Mary! "
