    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 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 don t remember [...]

    Un inicio de serie bastante flojo.Ten a todos los ingredientes pero por alg n extra o motivo no funcion , al menos no para m Los personajes, estaban bien, la historia tambi n Pero la mezcla entre ambas simplemente no encajaron como deber an.No sent ese amor entre ellos, aunque me gust que la autora se deciciera por un crecimiento lento yo la verdad es que no v crecer nada.Al ser el inico de una serie se tom tiempo presentando a los personajes y creo que eso fue en detrimento de la historia de la [...]

    If it wasn t written by Mary Jo Putney, this book would have gotten 2 stars from me Adam and Mariah had zero chemistry A man who lost his memory rescued by a woman who needed a husband Mariah lost me in the beginning with her lies and I couldn t really relate to her character Putney is usually much better at characterization and building a meaningful and colorful scene, both of which didn t come out in this book I didn t know why they were all hots for each other I didn t have a mental picture f [...]

    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 gave hints of h [...]

    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 he s [...]

    This book officially jumps the shark.So many typical plot devices are used I just had to laugh.A duke who is snubbed by many because of his mixed English Indian heritage has an interest in steam engines His steam boiler blows up, he is injured in the accident, and loses his memory His dedicated friends from an alternative school for wayward nobles search for his body.Meanwhile, our heroine is alone in the mansion that her father has just won in a game of cards Her gypsy grandmother speaks to her [...]

    Misfit

    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 FFS, despite the duke s house having extra security around, first he crawls into the duke s [...]

    This makes x3 Mary Jo Putney books that I have rated 2 stars It was OK It was so ok that I lost all interest in the story line The hero has amnesia, and upon being rescued from the sea that he had been floating in for 2 days, the heroine informs him that yes, she is indeed his wife not true at all He believes it with no question at all and immediately treats her very lovingly and sweet Which is ok, but I lost interest quickly because I like to watch people fall in love Which I am sure if I had s [...]

    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 in ba [...]

    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 for [...]

    This was decent and maybe from any other author I would have rated it higher But I know that MJP can deliver much 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 interesti [...]

    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 reading the next book in the seri [...]

    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 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 Burke and all [...]

    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 power than herself.I thought that Adam s clinging tightly to Mariah so qui [...]

    2,5.Trop ti de et trop plat J ai eu l impression que les personnages ne ressentaient jamais d motion intense, c est plus de l apathie que le fait de prendre les choses avec philosophie Par exemple quand il d couvre qu elle lui a menti, il est d u mais pas en col re Ou quand elle d couvre que son p re lui a cach toute sa vie l existence de sa famille, elle n est m me pas fach e 2 minutes, elle rit L intrigue concernant l accident du h ros est survol e et semble se r soudre d elle m me Et il y a t [...]


    Martel

    While there is a sweet fuzzy atmosphere in this book, mainly generated by all the good feelings shared by the characters, the protagonists are a bit tame for me No big thrills, then, despite mysteries and treacherous villains, illicit love affairs, and sudden, if not unforeseen developments Instead you ve got a nice comfort read with a few unlikely events, a bit too fantastic to be true, but hey it s a novel


    Lissy Liz

    Enjoyed this sweet contradicting at times story.


    Mariana

    Finally a good book I have enjoyed every Mary Jo Putney I ve read Too bad I read this series all out of order.


    ♥ℳelody

    2.5 3 stars Okay so I pretty much went into this with high hopes and anticipation Unfortunately it was a painful infuriating read to get through for the first half of the story I was sorely tempted a few times to just up and quit this book It was that bad for me The storyline had a lot of delicious potential I love amnesia storylines But the actual payoff and execution left a lot to be desired for me There were one too many contrived things that made the characters look silly and flat.Lord Adam [...]

    2.5 starsStarted out strong and developed nicely, I really enjoyed the first half, but then it all sort of fell apart when view spoiler previously thought dead parents and until then unknow family members started popping back into the hero and heroine s lives hide spoiler Also, too many extremely painful events are dealt with such superficiality that it was hard to read despite the Putney s engaging writing style And there were a few too many coincidences to make the story have some depth The en [...]

    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 clean Not sur [...]


    Country Goose

    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 society to become [...]


    Chapparita

    My rating would have been a 3 or 3.5 had the ending made sense to me Out of nowhere, there was a nonsensical plot twist Mariah s parents split up, resulting in her father running off with her under the pretense of making something of his life, but he left her sister behind, and never told Mariah about her sister Huh Putney couldn t come up with any other family reconciliation story Why would he take one of his daughters Why not leave Mariah with her mother and sister if he knew he d not have a [...]
