The Secret Pearl by Mary Balogh

Setting-Regency Period


He first spies her in the shadows outside a London theatre, a ravishing creature forced to barter her body to survive.

To the woman known simply as Fleur, the well-dressed gentleman with the mesmerizing eyes is an unlikely savior. And when she takes the stranger to her bed, she never expects to see him again. But then Fleur accepts a position as governess to a young girl…and is stunned to discover that her midnight lover is a powerful nobleman. As two wary hearts ignite–and the threat of scandal hovers over them–one question remains: will she be mistress or wife?

One of the best romances I’ve ever read! Mary Balogh has been a favourite of mine for a while but with this book, she’s guaranteed to stay in my top 3 Regency romance authors! I loved this book so much! It was simply wonderful and unforgettable! The beginning was very harsh and unexpected but Mary Balogh really makes up for it! It was romantic and just plain wonderful watching these two fall in love!

I think this is also the first romance I actually cried real tears at! I’ve read a couple others where my eyes sort of started tearing but this one made the tears really run! This is such a beautiful, emotionally complex and well-written story! A must read!

Sensuality: Warm

Verdict: Absolutely not to be missed!!! Completely brilliant and emotionally complex

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

  1. You should read Judith McNaught’s historical romances set in the Regency era. Her books always make me bawl like a baby.

    • Wow, thanks for the recommendation! I’ll be sure to have a look at them!
