It was bad enough that you should contrive at the seduction of an innocent girl, a child whom I entrusted to your care because I believed that with all your faults you were at least a gentlewoman. The biggest of these is the H’s evil mother Harriet, the dowager marchioness.

Cartland seeme Normally I would not read Cartland but I came across some of the plot whilst researching the Regency Era and then saw similarities there that forced me to investigate the book. You are pissed, right?

A very good historical romance by and by. The H is always cordial to Isobel but he’s not interested in her romantically.


The heroine soon starts to fall in love with the H because he’s so masterful and roguishly handsome, but there’s another woman a wannabe OW called Isobel who turns up to prevent the MC’s from growing closer. Was this review helpful to you?

A HAZARD OF HEARTS : Barbara Cartland :

Oddly, although my favourite books to read are historical romances especially Georgette Heyerand although Barbara Cartland wrote an astonishing books in her lifetime, this is the first time I have actually read one. She also finds out that her heart beats much faster, when or is next to Justin. I could not believe, you see, that anyone could be so beautiful, so perfect as you – and come to me unsullied, unspoilt.

No trivia or quizzes yet. But the mask cannot conceal And back to Justin. Where it might be fine for those who like their romances in such a way that there is a hero, a villain, and a heroine, I can’t seem to allow Cartland to have a hold on me as either Austen or Heyer does of writers who have left us.

In the movie, she keeps chasing her until she reaches her fate. And Lord Vulcan so dreamy and such a perfect gentleman although a bit aloof and not very trusting. Hero Justin is rich, notorious and titled he’s a Marquis and in true romance novel fashion, complete Gothic romance with elements from fairy tales like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Shakespearean comedies like As You Like it.

The characters are well-written, flexible and variably responsive to the developments of the plot, and I enjoyed the double perspective which revealed the inner thoughts and feelings of the two antagonistic characters, Serena, and the Marchioness. An Cagtland, was published in Thus in the end, I can not recommend this work to others who like the Regency, and since it was difficult enough for me to find, 65 years after it was first published, seeing it fade away from the canon of regencies we read might be better than urging any to find it and read it as well.


His mother wants to remain the ‘queen’ of Mandrake and doesn’t want Justin to ever marry anyone and when a terrible abduction occurs and Justin defends Serena the inevitable happens as she goes to fartland him and gets compromised.

The dowager who’s also a gamblerholic wants this hears because she has already gambled away her quarterly allowance. She rushes off, without a chaperone, to look for him after she hears that he’s been wounded in a duel with Lord Wrotham. The movie was the opposite! Paperbackpages. Poor writing, obvious plot.

Serena learns that the rumors about Justin just isn’t true. She needs more and more and more. Serena has little alternative but to marry a man whose wicked ways have contributed to her family’s downfall.

The heroine is also appealing.
