Indiscreet

Jove Regency, 1997, ISBN 0-515-12001-4

When Viscount Rawleigh attends a house party in the country, he plans to amuse himself with a beautiful young widow from a nearby village. He refuses to believe she is unwilling until it is too late. For her part, Catherine Winters has been living quietly in the village for several years, trying to keep a secret that could yet destroy her. She dare not give in to her attraction to the viscount. As her world falls apart, Rawleigh has to try to make amends and win her love at the same time, while Catherine has to face up to her past and take a hand in rebuilding her life once more.

Rarely does a full-length novel combine the bold passion of an epic with the quiet humor, knowing detail, and elegant manners of an old-fashioned Regency....Indiscreet is the kind of story only Mary Balogh could write, a story where love offers hope for all, and even minor characters can have deep, complex, and passionate relationships.
Larry Rogers for New and Used Books

Mary Balogh is a superb author, whose narrative voice comments on the characters and events of her novel in an ironic tone reminiscent of Jane Austen.
