Very weak compared to Putney's other work - started off promising, but definitely didn't follow through (2.5)

Loving A Lost Lord is the first in Mary Jo Putney's new series, "The Lost Lords." Ever since rereading her novel The Wild Child my interest in her has been renewed and I have been on the lookout for more of her books, since I enjoyed that one so much (I found The Rake which is an absolute treasure and I highly recommend). Unfortunately, Loving a Lost Lord was a complete disappointment. I

The first chapter of "Loving" started out in typical Putney fashion, and I looked forward to a great read. It started out great, but then it was almost like someone else wrote the next couple of chapters. Just about the time I wondered where Mary Jo had gone, she came back. This was not a bad book - just not her usual great writing, so I'm 'grading' her according to what I expected. There were some really good parts - when Adam's friends were searching for him, and the dreams/nightmares that gav ...more

The Lost Lords series follows a band of brothers-by-circumstance on their journey to find the perfect companion, starting with a unique hero who doesn't quite fit in and a capable, yet desperate, heroine.

Mariah Clarke is the daughter of a scoundrel, a man who pays their way by gambling at the card table. Mariah has been dragged around by her father her whole life, and never really had anything of her own besides a few hand-me-down dresses from society ladies that took pity on her. When her fath

What a disappointment after the other two books I've read by Putney. The main pair was engaging enough, but there's too much time setting up storylines for the future books in this series. And then there are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many returns from the dead and long-lost siblings that no one even knew existed (seriously? both of them?). A very easy to spot baddie, and those stupid murder attempts? (view spoiler) ...more
Oh I just loved this book! Sure there's a bit of a well that's convenient vibe about some of the coincidences in this story, but they only make for a happier happily ever after so I was totally satisfied. The characters in this story are wonderful and I really loved all of them.

Mariah has spent most of her life without a permanent place to call her own as her father made his living as a gamble within the ton. While never destitute they were never solid enough to settle down anywhere either. Now

Loving a Lost Lord is the first book in a new series by Mary Jo Putney, Lost Lords. It is about a group of unconventional school hood boys who grow up into upstanding men who find their true love. When the Duke of Ashton goes missing, the group presumes the worst that he is dead and begins a search to recover his body. Meanwhile off the coast of Northwestern England, Mariah Clarke finds the body of a man barely alive hanging onto a piece of driftwood. She manages to get him into her house and in ...more

Suddenly alone in the world, Mariah Clarke finds she's vulnerable to an unwanted and very aggressive suitor.

To get out from under the guy, she claims she has a husband. The creep backs off, but he's suspicious. He's also determined. It's a matter of time before he's back.

Calling on her gypsy roots, Mariah does some voodoo (or whatever gypsies call it) to get some help. She hears the ghost of her grannie telling her to go to the shore. Where she finds what's left of a hunky, half-drowned guy. He'

Decided to reread the series after I read the newest one. I enjoyed all the characters in the book, and only vaguely remembered the villain-amnesia befalls Adam, he is found by Mariah and mayhem and love ensues. Adam is 1/2 Indian and has had a difficult life after becoming a Duke, Mariah has had an unsettled life with her father, a gambler, so they make a perfect couple. I enjoyed the book just as much the second time. Now on to the next Lost Lord!
Sept 15, 2015 Can't believe I have now read it
This was decent and maybe from any other author I would have rated it higher. But I know that MJP can deliver much more powerful stories. This one didn't have the depth of characterization I am used to from her nor the level of historical accuracy/depth. I do like an amnesia theme almost any time and that was fairly well done here. I have read the other 2 in the series which have been written so far and will keep on reading because even if they're not up to her very best, MJP still delivers an i ...more

I don't usually like stories with heroes (or heroines) with amnesia so I was pleasantly surprised by this book. In all honestly, I haven't really enjoyed a historical novel in years. I guess I just got away from them with all those great vampire and werewolf books. Anyway, this one caught my attention and I found I really liked Adam (and his many friends). And I even liked Mariah who was just protecting herself from a creep with more power than herself.

I thought that Adam's clinging tightly to M
I liked this book a lot. I had read a lot of the reviews before I bought this book & a lot of the reviews weren't very flattering. I liked the premise of the book alot& have liked everything else by this author I have read so far, so I thought I would take a chance. I'm so glad I did. It was a fun type of read with a lot of interesting twist & turns. It is the first book in the Lost Lords series and gives you the backgrounds & characters for the rest of the series.

My first Mary Jo Putney book, so I'm not in a position to compare it with her other work.

The main story arc had a disturbing similarity to The Bourne Identity, with an amnesiac duke dragged from the sea, cared for by a genteel lady, and regaining motor skills such as horse-riding and shooting before recalling his identity and past -- while all the time someone is trying to kill him.

The narrative was weak in concept and execution and the characterisation lack-lustre. Where the book excelled was i

I'd like to address the naysayers. I've been reading a lot of romance novels lately. Why? Because they're fluff, and I need fluff in my life! I teach full-time and go to grad school. These books give me a MUCH needed distraction. They're quick reads, and keep me in happy endings. (Have I mentioned I love happy endings? I do. I really, really do.)
I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Even though the basic premises and plot points of many of these novels make the feminist in me cringe, I rejoice when th

The H/h are really well developed. The H is the son of English Duke of Ashton and his Indian Bride. Though Adam has been ridiculed his whole life for being of mixed blood. He was the sole heir of the duke and hence he was shipped to England to be instilled with English mannerisms and etiquette. During a steamboat experiment his boat is wrecked by an explosion and he id gravely injured and he is found on shore by Maria.

Maria is new in the area and in need of a husband. So when she finds

The beginning was rather slow (up to 20% of the book) .. then the pace was picked and everything developed nicely

I liked Mraiah, she is pure, kind and lovely and down to earth human being

As for Alex I loved his firms believes, standards and his kindness (Not the Hindu ones)

I felt very comfortable and relieved when I began this book. I can always feel a difference when I pick up a book by a writer I have loved in the past. It's like a cozy blanket. The last few books I read were by newer writers I hadn't tried before. And that's good for me. But it was just so easy getting into this one.

It's about Mariah who is a spinster living alone on an estate she inherited from her deceased father. He had won it in a game of cards. She has gypsy heritage and routinely talks to

A light read with a happy ending. From the very beginning, I was pleased. The writing style and the story were spot-on good. Actually, a little too "good" for my taste. I guess the ending was way too happy, but it was a good read, and it was enjoyable.

Adam is an easy-going character with a sense of obligation and honor. He is half Indian (dot not feather), half English. He was a nephew(?) to an English duke and was whisked away at a young age to be raised in England to be raised in English socie

It's so disappointing to go back and read a book you once thought was decent and find that it was really awful.

The book starts out well enough, but goes downhill quickly after Adam arrives on the scene. Mariah takes advantage of Adam's unfortunate situation and allows him to believe that she is his wife. She heaps lie after lie between them until she's unable to keep up the pretense any longer and comes

Two things that show up way more in romance novels than in real life, Dukes and amnesia. This one has an amnesiac Duke. And that wasn't even the hardest to believe thing in this book. Actually, that's well within romance novel plot standards and since I enjoy romance novels and I'm not a stickler for "realism" in what is essentially an escapist pastime an amnesiac Duke doesn't bother me in the least. I actually enjoyed the first half to two-thirds of this novel. I liked Adam and Mariah and was e ...more

My English review

Cette romance de Mary Jo Putney était une véritable surprise et j’ai vraiment beaucoup apprécié de découvrir ce premier tome. Je ne m’attendais pas à être autant emporté par l’histoire et nos deux héros, mais ça a été le cas et je suis impatiente de lire la suite des prochains personnages.

I bought all four books in the series, but didn't get around to reading them until WAY after I'd bought them. (Like, months and months later.) I have no idea why I did that, but it just made reading them all the more sweet (I suppose) because I REALLY enjoyed this book.
It had a lot of twists and turns, but I liked the whole "amnesia causes man to forget everything he ever knew but he turns up and is saved by woman claiming to be his wife" plot. I think it was well done, what with getting rid of

While I truly did enjoy this story, there were some things towards the end that were just so ridiculously contrived that I found myself shaking my head asking WTF? This really should have been a 3 star read because of that, but I chose to ignore it. I do love a good amnesia story and it was a good lead up to the other books.

My shaking head WTF moment: (MAJOR spoiler!!)

Way too many plot devices for me to enjoy. Thank you lendle from saving for paying for this mistake!

I really liked this book, till nearly the end. Ok, it's the old hit-on-the-head-and-lost-his-memory plot, but given that there are only so many plots in the world, I could take that. And the gradual uncovering of his identity and the revelation of a plot against him was well done, and there were some really witty and neat observations.

It's just that, near the end, she seemed to over-egg the pudding a bit. Without giving anything away, you can have too much of a good thing, and I think this was j

Free Kindle download with only a so-so cover, so I wasn't expecting much — but I really enjoyed this book. The premise is a little improbable — a duke survives a shipwreck but suffers amnesia, and a woman, not knowing who he is, takes advantage and tells an unwelcome suitor that the shipwrecked man is her husband. Still, it's a nice little twist on an old cliché, and it works. It's entertaining, and the people are likable. I especially liked that the heroine had integrity enough to tell the hero ...more
Trop tiède et trop plat. J'ai eu l'impression que les personnages ne ressentaient jamais d'émotion intense, c'est plus de l'apathie que le fait de prendre les choses avec philosophie. Par exemple quand il découvre qu'elle lui a menti, il est déçu mais pas en colère. Ou quand elle découvre que son père lui a caché toute sa vie l'existence de sa famille, elle n'est même pas fachée 2 minutes, elle rit. L'intrigue concernant l'accident du héros est survolée et semble se résoudre d'elle-même. Et
