I first encountered the regency romance novel by coming across a huge stack of Barbara Cartland at a used bookstore. The next thing I read was "Lord Carew's Bride" which, in a comedy of errors over a east coast to Hawaii flight, I read over four times at the first reading. Since then, you have been, bar none, my favorite regency author. Thanks for so much pleasure!

I have never been a big reader, I recently took the kids to the library. I have a 10 year old and a 4 year old, my 10 year old has been fighting leukemia for 5 years, I wish I had begun to read your books along time ago, the times just flies while I am into a book. The first book was I believe it is called The Christmas wish, or something like that. After I finished it, I ran back to the library to grab anything with your name on it. My friend (English teacher) told me Oh get Jane Austen, you will love it. I did pick up Jane Austen at the library and two of your books as well. I so enjoy your writing. It makes me want to see a bunch of movies made from your books. Has there ever been a book made into a movie? My eyes get tired, once I start reading I just can not put the book down, I was up til 2 am waiting to see If Lord Ashley would Marry Miss Emily, Emma, how you made her come alive with out a voice. EXCELLENT

You're the only author whose books I repeatedly reread. I always buy your new titles as soon as they hit the shelves, and I love them, but I have to admit that I have a true fondness for your Signets (and yes, I understand why you don't write them anymore, but I still grieve at the loss). Any chance that your Signets will be rereleased? I have all but two of them, and they are impossible to find (well, almost--I think my husband would be very unhappy if I spent $40-$80 for a used book). I would love to get my hands on those copies and I know I'm not alone. Let's face it, there's a reason why they're so expensive and that reason is demand. Looking forward eagerly to your next book.

Dear Mary, I just heard that one of my three favorite modern historical romance authors, Dame Dorothy Dunnett, passed away in November. You, she, Georgette Heyer have defined my standards for high quality in historical romance. Dorothy's delicately labyrinthine plotting and superb characterizations raised the bar for the genre in ways that challenged and rewarded us all. Please keep yourself healthy, well and productive--we readers are terribly selfish and would confer immortality on our favorite authors, chaining you to your desks forever, if we could. Warmly,

Hi Ms. Balogh! I would just like to say, I LOVE YOUR BOOKS! I started off slow - the first book I read of yours, I think it was Irresistable, was ok - I could take it or leave it. But later (a year or so) I picked up another book by you, LOVED it, and I was off. (I eventually reread Irresistable, and found it good. Some books just change like that for me. Same thing happened for me and Linda Howard's Son of the Morning, except I hated it first time, but loved it second...) I think you have one of the most authentic Regency "voices" I've read, and I've read many Regencies and Regency historicals! I have read all the books I can get my hands on by you, but since you have such an extensive backlist...oh well, I'm young yet, I'll get to all of them eventually! :) Thanks a lot for writing such wonderful books, and I hope you will not stop writing for many years to come. I am currently in college (I think I "discovered" you early in high school) and your books are excellent stress-relievers when studying for finals (which I am doing right now, btw), etc. I hope to study computer science, and I don't think many of my peers read romances...their loss! but then, I don't know any guys, period, who read romances...which is sad. ok, thanks a lot, I would love a reply (you're only the second author I've ever written to, the other is Joan Wolf, another great writer) bye! have a grrrreeeaattt day! :D

I work in the library at my college, and happened to be discharging two of your books. Always on the lookout for a new Regency Romance author (I'm picky, I guess, and have only found a few so far that I adore enough to buy all of their books), I checked out 'More Than a Mistress' and finished it that night. Of course, 'No Man's Mistress' followed, and I came to the sad conclusion that those were the only two you had written considering our huge library doesnt have any more of your books and those two were new. I am absolutely ecstatic to find out you have written many more, and will definitely be at the bookstore this evening to purchase as many more as I can find!!! Thank you for the fantastic stories :)

iam so delighted to have found your website. I have been collecting Mary Balogh books for years and still do not have a complete collection. But I'm still trying. I also am a history buff and in a recent course re Napoleon vs Wellington, we were asked what we knew about that era. I (and others in the class who also read Regency stories) referred to some of the costumes you describe and the rules that described the mores of the society of that day. The professor was fascinated - or so he said - so I gave him your name as the best of the lot. My husband and I on one of our trips to London would go to the different museums, and one of favorites was certainly the VandA Museum, as it was fascinating to see some of the actual costumes and carriages, etc. used in the early 19th century. I hope to keep in touch with you and do thank you for your marvelous writing, and your excellent research and reference work. Katherine Blanchet kblanchet94@aol.com

I just happened to find "More than a Mistress" on my library shelf when I was determined to have something good to read. I probably read 3-4 novels a month but I LOVED, JUST LOVED your book! I have not bought any of the books I read from the library...but yours will be a first!! By the way, I am Dr. Martin, a psychologist, and I adored the fact that I had to look up many of the words in your book! What a mental challenge. I am not usually a romance reader but I sooo enjoyed your book. I am going to pass it on to others. GOOD JOB!

Dear Mary: Slowly but surely my Mary Balogh collection is nearing completion. I just recently finished the four horsemen series and humbly join those wishing to see these friends and their families again. Their interaction was great: "Rex was asking in feigned disgust if that was a wound at the corner of Nat's mouth or merely a cold sore." I'll settle for an unpublished epilogue to Irresistible. Please? Thank you for directing me to Recordedbooks.com where I was able to get the audio version of More Than a Mistress. I'll admit thinking the narrator's delivery was too slow. Is there still hope that you will be narrating No Man's Mistress yourself? I wish there were audio versions of your short regencies, too. An Unlikely Duchess would be a good choice, hilarious! Thanks so much for creating such wonderful characters. I'm looking forward to your next book! Mary Frances Graham bigblueY2k@hotmail.com

Dear Ms. Balogh, I've been a fan of yours since reading "The Double Wager" in 1986. At the time I was writing what would become my first book, and part of the plot was similar. "I could never do this!" I thought. "She's already done it and she's done it twice as well." You have since become both my model as a writer, as well as my despair. I try to live up to your work, and I usually fail. I don't know if you remember me, but you may after I tell you this story. I met you at the New England Chapter conference a few years ago. I was the one who bought practically all your books and then spent the time while you kindly autographed them talking with Barbara Keiler, sitting next to you. The truth is, I was shy. I tend to get starstruck at conferences, and, let's be honest - I always make a fool of myself one way or another at a NEC conference. (This year I tripped over Leslie Wainger in my haste to get to the dessert table). I have felt badly about the incident ever since, and have wanted to apologize. I can tell you that I parcelled those books out very carefully, so that I wouldn't run out of them too quickly. I have most, if not all, of your books, and am at the point where I have to reread them. They still can keep me reading, though. In the past few weeks I have reread "Longing", which originally held me spellbound while I was on vacation in Fort Lauderdale a few years ago - not an easy thing to do, I think you'll agree. I think it's the favorite of your books. (tell me this - after reading the whipping scene, I've been wondering. Why are wet whips so much worse than dry ones? You never did explain that). As someone else in your guestbook wrote, I like it that you'll tackle the dark subjects. I tend to like darker books, and have not been thrilled with a lot of the newer books, which are just plain silly and have no depth. I cannot fathom why some of these books end up being huge sellers, and people's favorites. Even a funny book needs emotion. I loved the heroine in "The Famous Heroine". She was so much more realistic than so many of the characters in books, and yet the book was funny. I read "Christmas Beau" this past week, and finished "The Last Waltz" last night. I'll be reading the Christmas anthologies soon; my favorite story is "The Best Christmas Ever". I can't read it without crying. I've used it a couple of times in workshops to illustrate how to get depth in a work of fiction. The first time I did this, I got so choked up at the part where Anna started talking that I had to hand the book off to someone else to read. By the end of the workshop, I had half the group in tears. One woman, who was pregnant, came up to me afterwards and told me that that wasn't fair! I've also recently reread "Precious Rogue", for the fourth time in about two months. That's something I've never done with any novel or novella. I was so enchanted with it the first time that I picked it up again within a few days. Etc., etc. I do wish I could recapture the magic of a first reading, where I didn't know what was going to happen. This has been a long note, and I know I am gushing. It's just that so much of your work is so good. I don't know how you do it. Actually, I don't care - just keep on doing it! I look forward to all your books. All the best, Mary Kruger

I do not really like regency books, but somehow I stumbled (?) over One Night for Love" I was drawn to it from the first page. It is always hard to deal with rape. I was simply shocked by the fate of your hero. But amazed who you let her deal and cope with it. In a sensible way. Well its not easy to describe my thoughts about that book. I only can say, I am/was sad about the heros fate but I admire her for her soul, her ability to deal with the bad things in life.

Dear Mary, Having obtained many of your earlier books through my wonderful local library's inter-library loan, I feel I really know your work! I've recently enjoyed Snow Angel! What a fun romance! I was wondering if I noticed, after reading many of your books and a few of hers, whether Barbara Hazard and you share a few underlying themes? I thought I detected a few similarities in some plot details. Of course, I am Not saying that there is a lack in either authoress! Barbara Hazard is probably my second favorite Regency writer after you! Do you have any other authors you recommend? Also thought I'd tell you I have a hard time picturing some of your heroines...I have never known anyone with grey eyes! As for your heroes, I thought one sounded like Clark Gable! I do appreciate that the male characters are subtle in their handsomeness, not brawny hulks all. Here's hoping you enjoy my comments. Sincerely, Susan

Thank you for a very good read! I sat down and finished "No Man's Mistress" in one day. I enjoyed it thoroughly and think that it's among your best. The subplot that involves Viola's past is something that really changes the whole character of the plot -- adding a lot of depth. The question I have is: My mom, who is also a great follower of yours although she can barely read now due to macular degeneration, says that she thinks that your last two books are "re-hashes" --books you wrote before, but have expanded and improved. I don't think so. Who is right? Again, thank you for your hard work -- your stuff is definitely on my "keeper" list. Janet

I have read a few of your books and my favorite is "Longing". After reading it I remembered that years ago I had read a poem entitled "Longing". Something about it "called" to me and I copied it down. Thought you might be interested. What is longing made from? What cloth is put into it that it does not wear out with use Gold wears out, and silver wears out Velvet wears out, and silk wears out Yet longing does not wear out The moon rises and the sun rises The sea rises in vast waves But longing never rises from the heart (Welsh - 17th century) I found it so interesting that my favorite book of yours and this poem have the same title and Welsh association.

Dear,dear Ms. Balogh: I simply had to write again, because a few minutes ago I finished another great novel, LONGING. This is such a good story on so many levels. I'm glad it doesn't have a romance-y cover (in spite of the 'step-back'), because it is so much more. It came near to having one of those endings (like Jack and Belle or Sophie and Nathaniel) that comes dangerously close to being sad, BUT is saved by these important lines:"..they clung together, breathless with the realization of how close they had come after all to cowardice, to giving in to the fear of facing down the unknown...". That makes such a difference somehow. From reading the letter from Austria (below), I see that NO MAN'S MISTRESS has a similar situation with a heroine of lower social position than the hero (I will read this book soon, but I have THIEF OF DREAMS to read first). But nothing can beat your stories that take place in Wales. They have a completely different,REAL quality to them that is so intense. Your love of this place is palpable.They make me feel "hiraeth". This book is a classic. I also see in the letters below that many people are searching for backlist books like me. They are real treasures -- I will not give away my secret source for fear that all the Mary Balogh books will disappear from it! (It's in Florida, though!) Your books are all Keepers. P.S. I found a web site with a guide to Welsh pronunciation -- I'm getting very good at"ll" and "u" and "w"!

Dear Mary, I've never written before, but I have read many of your wonderful books - about 10. I love your witty dialogue, and I enjoy the sensuality too. Each of your books is a "keeper." I would read every single one, if I could just find them! No Man's Mistress brought me so much pleasure. When I finished it, I went back and re-read More Than a Mistress. I had ordered No Man's Mistress from the Doubleday Book Club about a week before Sept. 11. In the awful days after, I so looked forward to your book arriving in my mailbox. When I did receive it, your story let me forget the terrible news of the day for a while. I thank you so much for that. I am eagerly awaiting your next book.

Dear Ms. Balogh: Thank you so much for many hours of enjoyable reading. I read one of your books for the first time this summer when I saw "More Than A Mistress" on the "New Arrivals" shelf at our local library. I immediately fell in love with your writing style, the unexpected twists and turns of plot development, and the charming way you have of creating a scene. I really admired the female character and liked how strong, wise and intelligent she seemed to be. That began an interesting journey of discovery for me as I began the quest for more of your novels. I've scanned the list of available books in the library computer and have eagerly read all that they have. I just finished "Dancing with Clara", which I had to get in a large print special edition. I've even resorted to contacting Putnam Publishing to obtain "Thief of Dreams", another delightful book that I couldn't put down. Thank you for your consistently well thought out characters and plots. I really enjoy reading your stories. I look forward to your latest novel, "No Man's Mistress", which I understand has just been published. Jeanne Eisenhut

I was drawn into reading it not only because the story sounded exciting, but also because my soon to be husband's name is Balogh. His father is Hungarian, born and raised.Were your parents Hungarian or maybe your husband? Well, I enjoyed your book, and am looking forward to reading "No Man's Mistress". Sincerly, Jocelynn Ogaz

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your novels. I started out with the historicals and am now "glomming" your backlist of regencies and anthologies. I am doing quite well (I only need about 20 more) as I check out used bookstores wherever I travel. Have you ever looked at eBay? - your books are very popular and some of the older regencies are selling for very high prices (The Wood Nymph went for $45US in Sept!) It is tempting, but I won't part with mine! I am looking forward to your new historicals to be released and am hoping for the reissue of your regencies. (Oh, oh - there goes the fun on eBay!)

Dear Mary Balogh! I enjoy your books for many years now, and I find both your willingness to handle darkness and difficulty in a believable way and your willingness to "take on" imperfect heroes and heroines (like Gerald in A Precious Jewel) very special. Thank you for much reading pleasure. With No Man's Mistress I had a lot of difficulty with the ending, which seemed "sugoarcoated" to me. The Regency era, always portrayed as populated by all those high sticklers and all those girls who were ruined for being alone in the garden for a little while with a stranger, does seem like an unrealistic setting for society's acceptance of the heroine. I would have found the couple accepted by the family (which was too easy and casual in my eyes, as well - some thought about the moralities involved, some introspection by the ladies before just opening their family circle would have made it much more meaningful, in my eyes), and maybe not shunned at some small events organized by the Duke more believable, and it seemed like a copout, or a fairytale, the way that book ended. I would be very interested in your comments, because I may not know enough about the Regency, being only a romance reader in that field, not a historian, and anyway, I like your books a lot, I found both the hero and the heroine very special, and their internal conflict well done, so I am looking forward to clarifying that bit for me, as well. All the best, Lisa

Dear Mrs. Balogh, You are my very favorite romance author! You must hear this frequently...but I must say "thank you" for giving me so many hours of great reading! I was so excited to see that you have moved to Dell and they have published your last two manuscripts in beautiful hardcovers. Your work deserved to be in hardcover from the very first one. I am an aspiring romance author and have been writing for the last two years. I've completed my first work and have sent it to a contest to get some feedback. I am interested to learn if you are ever planning any lectures/writing classes anywhere in the US especially on the east coast. I noticed you might come to NY to produce an audio recording of your last book. Or, do you have any lectures you have done "on tape" for purchase? Thank you again for writing all your wonderful books. I think my favorite is, "Irresistible" (but maybe because the heroine shares my first name!) or "The Secret Pearl." But is hard to pick a favorite, as you have never let a reader down with any of your novels! My father, who died last year, told me you were his favorite along with Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen and I must concur! Best, Sophia Nash Ours

Now they are unavailable, or if I find any, the price is greater than it was originally! Do you know of any sources where I can buy or trade used paperbacks online? Perhaps I can find some of your old books. Again, I enjoy reading your books, along with those of Mary Jo Putney,Jo Beverly, Joan Wolf and Edith Layton, some of my favorite regency authors.

(P.S. - I know you have a lot of projects lined up, but would you please consider writing one more Horsemen book -- after all, 4 horsemen : 4 stories, right? And, I really think that Eden and Lavinia got very short shrift in Irresistable. They are a fascinatingly different couple, with strong personalities,one of which is probably jaded with so much casual sex and the other with no experience at all (and such a strong Women's Libber for the early 19th century!)! And both kind of stubborn and both finding "I love you" so difficult to say. I know you could go to town with THEM! And it would be so nice to see the Horsemen ALL settled happily and appreciative of the love they have in their lives. Plus, we would really enjoy their delightful bantering whenever they are all together. How about it? Please?)

I just have to write again, even though I wrote last week (apparently on the day of the tragedy in New York). After searching used book stores in three cities(!), I managed to collect all 3 Four Horsemen books! I just finished the last one, and I must say that those guys (even Kenneth)are the most delightful, endearing and (when they're together)funny gentlemen I've met since Friday's Child (Miss Heyer). Nathaniel was my favourite and the character of Sophie was perfect for him. I adored this book UNTIL Sophie rejected him, EVEN THOUGH he had been her champion! It was so upsetting for him to be so hurt and then to not see her again for three months! They went through so much pain within themselves and it took so long for them to clue in about each other's feelings, that the brief ending was (for me) very anticlimactic and didn't heal or make up for all the heartbreak. There just had to be more to than that! I literally felt bereft when it was over. And, considering it was supposedly the end of the Four Horsemen, I really would have liked to have had them all together at the end, so we can know that their deep friendship will go on all their lives. I'm sorry, but I want to know that Nat and Sophie are gloriously happy in their marriage, so that the bad stuff they went through is balanced out (you know, Yin-Yang etc.) As your other reader said about another book, "It ended too soon!" I feel better getting that off my chest ... also I will immediately start a new story to help me get over it! I hope you can tell from all this that I LOVE your books and wouldn't want you to think I'm criticising. Rather I'm expressing a plea for help! I love those guys!

My first one of yours was Heartless (and thank heaven my library also had Silent Melody to follow it with!). I loved The First Snowdrop, but wept alot during Christmas Belle.

Of course, it has also spurred a return to More than a Mistress, which I'm sure will be followed by more re reads. Keep writing!

I was very disappointed when No Man's Mistress ended -- no, it wasn't a bad read at all. It was just one of those books you want to savor. But then, it's such a good read you find yourself at the end asking, "How did I get here so quickly!" I was wondering if you had any future plans of writing Angie Dudley's story. While I read the series, I kept wondering how the heck she did end up marrying Heyward "the old dry stick" and now I'm really curious. Even if you don't plan to write a prequel for Angie, at least I can look forward to your upcoming books and series.

Dear Mary, You must know that one published book a year is not enough for your fans. Can you persuade your publisher to let you produce books like the Signet Regencies? I am assuming they are a little easier to write because they are shorter.??..therefore more may be written in a year's time. Hope I am not coming off like a slave-driver but it has been bleak between books...Keep up the great work...sincerely, Frances.

Mary, I really loved "No Man's Mis- tress".I bought last Thursday(8/8/01), after being called by the bookstore the day before.I loved Ferdinand&Viola.I really loved the twist you put in the story.After having read "MTAM",I was sure that Ferdie was "experienced" so to speak.I also loved the glance at Jo- celyn&Jane after four years of marriage, I loved how Jane revealed that she&Joce- lyn loved to spend an afternoon or two at "the house".Why was I not surprised at Lady Heyward's not being shocked at that revelation,only upset that Jane had never told her.Which brings me to some- thing else,I would give anything to read Angeline's story,she kept revealing a glimpse or two in both books.Now their story sounds like it would be very in- teresting indeed.Am looking forward to the sequel to "One Night For Love".Have a nice time in Wales.

What can anyone say to the producer of some of their best daydreams-PLEASE keep on writing so I may keep on dreaming. In this all too real world, happy endings just do not exist-moments, yes-but happy endings only by Balogh. Your historicals are very good, but your regency's soar. Their haven't been any lately, please, plese don's stop writing them. Bless you and your vivid mind and romantic heart. Barbara

Dear Mary, I adore your books! They have entertained and thrilled me. It has taken me years to collect just 20 of your regencies. Most people must be like me ... they must horde them. Considering your popularity, I'm surprised that they don't re-issue your books. They are difficult to find both in used bookstores and on-line. I just finished reading More than a Mistress. It was wonderful! I'm looking forward to reading No Man's Mistress when it comes to paperback. By the way, I found the cover art to be both elegant and eyecatching. If you have any suggestions about how to aquire your signet regencies, please get back to me. Do you still write signet regencies? I look forward to hearing from you. Lisa Sebelle

Dear Ms. Balough, It astounds me that you are able to be as productive as you are, keep up an interesting website AND stay admirably abreast of your email traffic. One part of my attraction to Regencies is certainly my strong Luddite tendencies. Every time a Regency features a subplot involving the smashing of mechanical looms, etc., I secretly cheer and imagine my computer going up in smoke. On a different side of technological innovations during this period, many Regencies often mention improved stoves being installed into the households of enlightened landowners (or by enlightened landowners wives and housekeepers). Am I correct in infering that prior to the use of stoves, households would have been getting along using open fires, pits, spits and dutch ovens? So would an improved stove be something like the Franklin stove (or some kind of stovepipe stove)? Or would it be one adapted to the use of coal (or is that Georgian/Victorian?)? One by-product of the period would have to be acute respiratory difficulties from wood or coal smoke (imagine all those poorly drawing chimneys), linked with the cold, damp climes, crowded households without adequate healthcare (t.b., colds, flus, bronchitis, etc. running rampant) and inadequate clothing (surely ladies weren't fluttering around in muslins and shawls all year round?)--no wonder ladies were dying left and right.

Hello, My introduction to you was through More Than A Mistress. I just happened to borrow the book from the library and I was thrilled. I read it and a friend of mine read it before it was due to be returned. In returning to the library, I tried to get as many of your books as I could. Unfortunately, there were only two that I could find, one of which is One One Night For Love. I usually do not buy books until after I've read them because I enjoy rereading my books. However, I'm ordering No Man's Mistress so I can have it as soon as it is available. I guess you can gather by now that you have a new fan. I am looking forward to reading your your new books and catching up on the old ones. Thank you, so much, for many hours of reading pleasure. Dahlia

Hi:-) I'm Karen from Flandres, Belgium. I'm reading 'a night for love' and I am absolutely loving it! It's the first book of yours that I've come accross. I'm only nineteen, but I've been reading historical novels for quite a while (say 4 or 5 years) and I am a bit "upset", let's say, that I didn't discover your books any sooner. On the other hand, I'm extraordinarily thrilled to have found yet another great writer of historical novels. I'm reading 'a night for love' in English,but I'd like to know if they are being published in Dutch too, which would make them a bit easier to come by. I stumbled upon your book quite by accident, in a second-hand bookshop. It's difficult to find new releases of such novels in Belgium which makes me dependend of second-hand bookshops, very few regular bookshops sell them.I don't really know why. It's a great nuisance for me!:-) Anyway, I'm terribly glad I discovered you and I will set upon buying them (and reading them, of course :-))) whenever I can (find them). You're a great writer and I hope you'll continue to write such wonderful books. Greetings from a new fan from Belgium Karen

Do you think that you could ever persuade your publishing company to reprint some of your older books? Specifically, The Trysting Place, Wood Nymph, and The Constant Heart. I know there would be a huge market for them. I have collected all or your book over the years except those few. The secondary market is extremely high and I'm sorry to say I can't convince myself to pay $65.00 for one book that may or may not be in good condition.

"More Than a Mistress" showcases your marvelous writing talents yet again. I'm a devotee of Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre," and was absolutely delighted to see that "More" is brillant reworking of this story, It takes a very fresh approach from the complete opposite direction of the original inspiring work in matters of characterization and plot, yet retains some very exact matters and details such as "play a little." In the duels sequences there is undoubtedly the influence of Alexandre Dumas' "Three Musketeers," and in the reconciliation scene at Lady Webbs' the influence is of "My Fair Lady." Bravo Mary Balogh!

I thank you for the many hours of enjoyment you have given me through your writing. My first Balogh book was One Night For Love. After going through all of your single titles, I started reading your Regencies - a category I had never tried before. Now I am an avid collector with only three to go until I am the proud owner of The Complete Regency Works Of Mary Balogh! I am curious as to why An Unacceptable Offer is not included in your complete book list. Just an oversight? More Than A Mistress is probably my favorite, but I just read A Counterfeit Betrothal and *loved* it. Was thrilled to see in your newsletter that More Than A Mistress is being produced on tape by Recorded Books! I am a frequent audio book listener and look forward to this work. I'll keep my fingers crossed that they also buy No Man's Mistress and you read it! It will be sublime! May the joy you bring to others be returned to you. -Jeri

Dear Mary, I just read your book "More Than a Mistress" and I just loved it. (Couldn't put it down.) I also want you to know that I have all the books you have written. I started collecting about 4 years ago. I went through Amazon.com auctions, ebay and any other source to find them all. I paid quite a bit for a couple of them, but the books are well worth it. I have 4 to read yet, but am saving them. I also have read and re-read several of your books. My favorites being of the four men in Indiscreet, Unforgiven and Irresistible. I like the lightness and airiness of your books. As far as I am concerned your are the best writer of historical romance. I've read a lot of other authors, but your books tell a great story that contains humor, love, sadness, a little history, a little mystery and great endings. I know I am going to like the sequel to "More Than a Mistress." For I liked the Duke's brother in this book. Can't wait to read it. One of your greatest fans, Kay

I just read More than a Mistress and loved it so much. As I was reading, I found myself more and more intrigued by the sister, Lady Heyward. I think that she's annoying, but very lovable. I really want to know her story. You should write a book on her as well. It could be interesting.

Dear Ms. Balogh:My name is Sharon Hanson, and I am a Canadian Author who has written a novel named “Rose Bank Cottage”, which is nearly ready for publication by American Book. I know you are a very busy person, but I would like to ask if you would be willing to read and write a short foreword that I could use in my novel. I truly believe it is one you would enjoy as it is an historical romance based on the real lives of my great-great-great grandparents who led 172 disbanded soldiers and their families into the Nova Scotia wilderness to settle the new community of New Ross, under the guidance and request of Governor Lord Dalhousie back in 1816. Rose Bank Cottage follows the life and experience of its main character, Mary Ross, from the age of six to her marriage at 26. Rose Bank Cottage is a novel that depicts the lives of its characters in a rich format, enticing the reader to turn the next page, and learn about true Canadian History, and her pioneers. Rose Bank Cottage is a family story, rich in morals and values that any parent would be happy to see their child read. I have included the Foreword directions from my editor, and hope you will consider my request. I look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for taking the time to consider this proposal. Sincerely, Sharon Hanson Foreword A foreword, says the Chicago Manual of Style, is usually a statement from someone other than the author. Often the author will find an eminent person or celebrity to write the foreword. In such cases, the eminent person’s name is added on to the book’s title page as: “With a Foreword by … ” The name of the writer of the foreword will usually appear at the end of the foreword. However, when the foreword is a lengthy one, the name may appear at the beginning. Forewords can be as short as three paragraphs or as long as seven pages. Some authors pre-write sample forewords to simplify the task; the celebrity can then re-write it, using their own words. Some authors trade forewords and blurbs with each other’s books. There are many creative ways to get celebrities and authorities to write a foreword for you. When an author acquires a foreword by a well-known name or celebrity, it boosts the value of the book significantly. For example, recently two large publishing houses bid against each other on a manuscript that two well-known authors were endorsing. The bidding ended with one of the publishers offering an advance of over $ 450,000 up front to the author. When the well-known authors said to be endorsing the manuscript then backed out, the publishers withdrew their bids and the advance was also withdrawn. The publishers were willing to offer so much money because of the value that an endorsement from a well-known author or celebrity contributes to the marketability of a book. Publishers know that with such endorsements they have a tremendous advantage over other books. They can get a great deal more press, have the book reviewed by top publications, and appeal to book distributors and consumers in a more substantial way. Authors can and should ensure their book’s success by obtaining a foreword and blurbs by recognizable names.

I have been reading them since they first came out in 1985 and have all of them in my collection. Like you, I was introduced to Regencies through Georgtte Heyer (I have all her Regencies, too) and was hooked for good. I am simply pleased and delighted that someone of your writing ablility came out to follow her acheivements and to improve on them. Keep writing and I will keep reading, and rereading, your books.

Just read your new book last night. As usual, you (almost) destroy most competition. Your depth of character and their frailities and strengths is wonderful to read. I know that when you release a book it will just turn my crank- and you never fail to deliver. I still go back and get some of those very early ones out and read. I think Margarite was one of my favorites. Anyway, before I go on and on, just let me close by saying thanks for another good romance. Oh, I wish your next one was not a hardback. Even though it is not a financial hardship for me, it is hard justifying that much money for One Night Of Love.

Dear Mrs. Balogh, I just read you for the 1st time and was so amazed! You wrote an introduction to one of the reprints of Georgette Heyer's 'Talisman Ring', which I read with interest. I was greatly impressed with your writing style as well as what you said, and I wrote your name down for the next time I went to the bookstore. They had a copy of 'One Night for Love' which I devoured in 2 days. Not only was your story fun, it was beautifully written, had unexpected twists and turns without being emotional/silly/unbeleivable, had a maturity to it that isn't at all common in love stories, and was not all that predictable (as romance authors often are). I also bought 'Truly', which I'll read next. I came to your web site to get the complete list of your books and am pleased to see that you are a prolific writer. Because you are, I have a lot to look forward to! I told my Mom about you, too. She'll be quite pleased to discover, as I did, just how terrific an author you are. She was an English major in college, too (she's 76 now), loves romances, and will be so pleased that someone has finally been able to surpass Georgette Heyer. I say that with the greatest respect for her, but in all sincerity to you. Thank you so much, Anne Campbell

Thank you for writing such well crafted books. I loved "More Than A Mistress". Your charachters are engaging and believable. I also appreciate the fact that you maintain historical integrity in writing about a given time period. Too many authors/and or editors appear to be completely ignorant about the actual history of a period and allow glaring errors to go uncorrected in the books. Thank you for not assuming your readers are idiots who won't notice. It is distracting when someone mentions dynamite (invented in 1867) in a regency novel. Why not mention television as well?

I remarried in 1997 (quite a surprise to me because after 38 wonderful years of marriage I just never thought to marry again.

But I still keep reading your books because I love them so much. I have kept them all and every once in a while when I don't have a good book to read, read them over. My best to you and yours.

Now, in the middle of my life, I have only recently come to read romance novels, for they do not have the best of reputations. However, on the basis of a recommendation from a friend whose opinion I respect, I came to discover your books. And now I think I have been spoiled -- not many other authors live up to the quality of your stories and characters. You make the period references and the plots flow naturally from the characters. I especially liked "Irresistible", "The Temporary Wife", and "The Notorious Rake". Each of the heroes or heroines in those books is so psychologically true that the stories are quite powerful. Other books I have read since discovering romance novels will say a character is smart or kind or attractive or whatever, but you don't have to say it because you have them show these qualities through their own words and actions. So in "Irresistible", for example, we know Nathaniel is kind because we see how he responds to Sophie's anguish. We know Lord Edmond Waite will be worthy of Lady Mornington's love (eventually) because we see how he comforts her during the thunderstorm, in contrast to her betrothed later in the book. (And I do hope they got their "eight month baby".) I will end now but I do want to say "Thank you."

Thank you for being you, and for writing so many books that I've loved and considered "keepers". You also led me to a milestone move recently... For 'though I've bought 100s of paper-backs over the years, More Than a Mistress was my first hardcover fiction purchase. I just didn't want to wait, and I've a feeling it's sequel will be my 2nd. Before discovering the web (which I love!) I eagerly searched for your new books every time I went into a book store. Now I'll be curious to see if I like the change to "surfing" instead of searching (not that I'll be able to resist it...). Because I wonder if, like using modern technology to discover the sex of an unborn child, it will somehow rob my world of a little more magic... I'm not too worried, though, because you and a very few others still keep adding joy and wonder to my verocious reading hobby. This has somehow gotten way too long. Please have as lovely a life as you often give me... You must be a very special lady. Thank you for the magic and thank you for your time. PS - I can't seem to get to the Hunger Site lately.

I'm a big fan and have been reading (and re-reading) your books since the late 80's. This is going to sound a little O/C, but I just finished re-reading Indiscreet (3d time), and my final thought as I closed the book was the same as it always is - why can't we have a sequel and let that nice Mr. Adams marry someone else? I want him to remarry (after the first wife is gone to her not-so-heavenly reward)and I want it to be a love story equal to his brother's. After all - these ARE romances, so happily ever afters are possible for all the characters! He's just wonderful and she(wife #1) just isn't good enough. She has several serious character flaws (greed, selfishness, cruelty and class pride come to mind), and he deserves better. So do we, your faithful readers. So please, think about it, a carriage accident, a falling branch, an unidentified fever - something should carry her off and leave the way open for a whole new, wonderful book.

I have read most of them multiple times and always enjoy them all over again. Your characters are so well developed and human. I think that is one reason why I like to re-read even though I already know the story. I have all of the Regency Christmas books and I re-read them every Christmas -- at least your story. Is there any chance that there will be a sequel or sequels to "One Night For Love." It seemed like there were several other stories in there. That is one of the things that like about your books, finding a character that I met before in another book. It feels like meeting an old friend. Thanks for giving me so much enjoyment.

Dear Mrs. Balogh, I am an ardent fan and look forward to your next work of fiction. I do have some comments on your use of the term "gender." The word “gender” is used to distinguish between the different roles of men and women that are shaped by their culture and social norms, not their biology. It is not a polite substitute for the word "sex." For example, in your epilogue to "The Christmas Bride," you write: "We have a son, Helena?" Not that the gender mattered. In this instance, Edgar is refering to the sex, not the gender of the child. Your delightful works do often refer to gender roles. Your iconoclastic heroines may struggle against the strictures of those roles, as when they rail against the behavior expected of them as ladies. Or they may use them to advance their objectives, as when they lean on the honor of gentlemen or exercise their feminine wiles.

Dear Mary, Have recently discovered your books after finding your new hardcover, "More Than a Mistress" on the New books shelf at our local library. I don't mind saying that it really inspired me in the area of romance with my own husband! You do a nice job with regency fiction -- I too have read Austen, Heyer, and a few others, finding that era so enjoyable to read about. My husband's fraternity portrait from college has him looking just like a regency beau, with his sideburns, curly forelock, and highish collar, tie and vest. It doesn't take much to picture him as one of the heroes! I was pleased to see in your biography that religion is important to you...from your writings, I did not detect a very positive attitude toward the Christian faith. It would be nice if you could weave a living faith into some of your characters...?! Sincerely, Susan

Mom, I like your site very much and the family pictures conjure up some fine memories. Larry is delighted to only have made it into one of them. I guess next time you update we'll have to remedy that!! I have been busy reading some of my favorites of yours from the start and I am presently reading MORE THAN A MISTRESS. So far so good. I have also been reading some of your guest book messages and I think its wonderful that people all over the world love you and your books. It is a well deserved success. LOVE, Jacqueline

I was browsing through the New and Used Books interview with you when much to my delight I find you are from Kipling, practically a next door neighbour! I have enjoyed your books for a long time and will even more so now that I know you are a fellow Saskatchewanian (that's quite a mouthful). If we are ever in Kipling for hockey, you may find me lurking in the bushes hoping for an autograph! (BG) Enjoy the mild weather we're having and best wishes, Lee-Ann

Thank you for providing such a useful web site, which includes your entire list of books. My cousin, Mary Alice Gibner, thinks she has a complete list of your books except for one. I will send the list to her so she can compare it to her collection. Thanks. Jo Ann

Dear Mary, Your first hardcover book was the first book of yours that I had read. I found it so enjoyable and I really felt that I was there with your characters. I know alot of times I try to pretend I'm the main character if I like the way the female lead is written. By this I mean her personality and If I can relate to her. Because of how wonderful it was I went on the web to research your previous books and to obtain copies. I was very successful and have now just started One Night For Love. This also seems to be one that I will enjoy. I'm always so glad to discover a author and then I can have lots of reading material because of being able to go back and read older novels. I can't wait for your next hardback. I also wanted to tell you that reading a really good book, which yours our, inspires one to want to write one themselves. I hope one day I will get the nerve to really work on my writing. I keep using the excuse that my children (ages 7 and 11) and my teaching career keep me to busy. I know thats just an excuse or so my husband would say. He says if you can find the time to read them you could find the time to write them. Well maybe this summer when I'm on break from school I'll get serious. Sorry to deviate from what I really wanted to say. I loved your book and can't wait to read all your older ones. Melanie

I'm afraid that last time I was a bit twp and got the e mail address incorrect. The excuse is I'm over 50, computer illiterate and teach 6 year olds, ( who are much better than I am ) I enjoy your books enormously and wish they were easier to get in U.K. (particularly with your ancestral heritage) I bought my first one when we lived in Labrador and have your latest as a Christmas gift. I am now trying to get some early ones. Please carry on writing . Best wishes for a Happy New Year.

I read More Than A Mistress in Sept when I was finally able to buy it (have to admit I haunted the Waldenbooks for weeks because I didn't know when it was supposed to be on the shelf) and was delighted as usual with the plot and characters. I enjoyed the story so thoroughly that I didn't "notice" the elements of historical detail, manners, costume, etc, which seem to occupy some readers when they discuss a book. It's another success and another I'll keep to reread for years, as I do the rest of your work. I too, am waiting for the stories of Lauren and Gwen-- and hoping for HEA for both! Thanks for the great read.

Mary, I must confess I have only just discovered you as a new author to me through "One Night for Love". Neville and Lily's story was painted with such rich colors, I just couldn't put it down. And I hope to hear more of Lyndon and Elizabeth's story. Imagine! Thinking of starting a family at the advanced age of 36. Unheardof. Ha! I find as I review your backlist of publications that I am only about 15 years behind, and I am thrilled that I have so many of your wonderfully rich stories to catch up on. Thanks for many enjoyable hours. And what a great web page!

Mrs. Balogh I much enjoyed More than a Mistress. I was compelled to buy it, and I NEVER buy hardback books. When is the No Man's Mistress going to be released?? When will the book about the jilted bride from One Night for Love be coming out? Have you thought any more about writing the younger brother's story from Temporary Bride?? My introduction to your writing was the Welsh historicals Truly and Longing. I recently read an interview in which you commented that they were not well accepted. They were two of your very best in my opinion. I enjoyed especially the historical detail. Rgds Carol

Hi there! Just finished "More than a Mistress" and I enjoyed it so much. I don't usually read regency books, but your book is well written and fuller in characters and depth than the usual book. I will look for more of your books soon. Thanks for the hours of enjoyment you gave to me. Cheers!

Dear Mary -- When is Lauren's story going to be published? I can't wait. I just reread a bunch of your books, which I tend to do when I'm busy and/or tired. What could be better than to curl up on the bed with a fleecy blanket and my favourite author. Thank you for so many hours of blissful reading -- As ever -- Linda.

Hi Mary, I'm an avid reader of romance novels, although I had never read any of your books, sorry to say! I just finished "More than a Mistress" which I really enjoyed. It was written beautifully with not one extra word. I was totally absorbed in the lives of Jocelyn and Jane. I loved their clever dialogue and particularly, the portrayal of Jane as mature as well as intelligent. I will now run out to buy all of your books that I can get my hands on and anxiously await Jocelyn's brother, Ferdinand's book. Your newest fan, Maria Varecka
