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...more

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
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

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

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...more

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. I will be read...more
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...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'...more
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
**First Read - 2009**
Not reviewed. Originally given 3 stars.

**Second Read - 1/14/14-1/19/14**
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...more

หนังสือเล่มนี้ถือว่าเป็นเรื่องที่เรารอคอยมานานพอสมควรค่ะ เพราะหนังสือเล่มสุดท้ายที่แมรี่ โจ พัทเน่ย์เขียนแนวย้อนยุคแท้ ๆ ก็ต้องย้อนกลับไปเมื่อหลายปีก่อน สมัยที่แม็กซ์ยังยืนหนังสือห้องสมุดอ่านอยู่เลย (จำได้เพราะเราไปเอาหนังสือเรื่อง The Bartered Bride ซึ่งเป็นฉบับปกแข็งจากห้องสมุดมาดองเสียเกือบเดือน ก่อนจะต้องรีบอ่านแทบตาย เพราะครบกำหนดคืนแล้ว) นอกจากนี้แล้วกลยุทธ์ทางการตลาดของสำนักพิมพ์ก็ยังทำให้เวลาวางขายของหนังสือเล่มนี้โดยยืดออกไปอีก เพราะสำนักพิมพ์ต้องการจะพิมพ์หนังสือของแมรี่ โจในช่วงเวลาที...more
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
Mon avis en Français

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.

Mariah Clarke possède enfin une maison, un endroit à elle, quelque chose qu’elle n’a jamais eu auparavant, ayant toujours vécu sur les routes avec son père. Pourtant cela n...more

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...more
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...more
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...more

Though this is the 1st book of the series, I read the series out of order. Reading the other ones made me intrigued to read this one so I already have some clues to a good portion of the surprises in this book. Otherwise, it might have been rather overwhelming and less enjoyable just from the sheer amount of crazy turn of events and surprises, and the number of characters being introduced.

Another reviewer compared the characters' similarities and situations to One Perfect Rose and I agree that t...more
My god this book was bad but I still couldn't quite put it down. Books like this are the reason I walked away from historical romance a few years ago. It's just full of all of these ridiculous coincidences and the characters do and say the dumbest things. My apologies in advance but it's hard to rant without giving away some plot points. So Mariah finds Adam mostly but not quite dead and ends up telling him they're married. I can get past that idiocy that's bound to bite her in the butt. They of...more

After a life spent following her gambling father on the road, filled with uncertainty, Mariah Clarke finally has a home of her own. Her father won it in a card game but the origins don’t matter. She’ll at last have somewhere to truly call her own and she cannot wait to get the house in order and put it to rights. As soon as her father installs her in the residence, he leaves again, saying that when he returns he’ll have exciting news for her. Before that can happen though, Mariah gets some terri...more
This first in a new series was a bit of a disappointment. It has all the hallmarks of a book written too quickly, especially the repeated short paragraphs and lack of depth in the portrayal of the characters. The concept is great, however, so I will probably read the next in the series and hope that she takes a bit more time with it. I will say it's unusual for Ms. Putney to turn in this kind of slapdash effort.
Rating: 3.5 stars

Let me start this review off by saying that, as an author, if you have to write a scene in which your characters have a serious discussion about all of the "coincidences" that have happened to them in the last twenty or thirty pages . . . YOU HAVE TOO MANY COINCIDENCES!

This was only my second non-paranormal historical romance by Mary Jo Putney. I really do enjoy her writing style; but I, like many of the other reviewers at Goodreads, apparently, was somewhat disappointed in the...more

Wow. This one was WAY over the top.

It started off with bewilderment - I really couldn't understand a heroine who decided to tell a rescued an amnesiac that he was her husband because otherwise she might agree to marry another man by accident. I mean, really? Just how weak-minded IS this woman?

Once I got past that things quieted down and weren't exciting, but at least weren't insane. Then they all went to London.

Holy smokes. I could start listing the tropes that were ticked off in almost manic su...more
This book was enjoyable. Amnesia stories can be fascinating . . . one of my favorites in the romance genre is Until You by Judith McNaught. This one doesn't approach that calibre, but a good read all the same. Mariah is a likable heroine, and Adam, the lost lord of the title, is a half-breed and is therefore more interesting than the run-of-the-mill English aristocrat.
I was really enjoying this book, which I bought in an Audible sale, until it jumped the shark at the end. Although, as a cognitive neuroscientist, I realize just how unlikely this sort of amnesia would be, I do like a good amnesia plot and enjoyed watching this one unfold. [spoilers removed]
I haven't read Mary Jo Putney in awhile and picked this up to break up some heavier non-fic and to perk up the winter doldrums. She doesn't disappoint in her first book in the Lost Lords series, Mariah needs magic to escape a cad pressuring her to marry him and there he is on the beach at midnight when she walks in worry. She christens him Adam when he appears to have lost his memory and she also tells him they're married.

Several friends search for their friend Adam, the Duke of Ashton who has b...more
Güzel bir hikayeydi yalnız ikisinin de kaybettikleri ailelerini aynı anda bulmaları biraz "yok artık" dedirtecek gibiydi. Onun dışında beğendim romanı, tersten başladığım bir başka serinin daha ilk kitabını okuyup hikayeleri tamamlamış oldum bu sayede.
