Mary Balogh is uneven for me. Some of her books are utterly perfect, and some just are okay. This is a perfect one.

A fairly common historical romance setup (read the blurb above), but done with genuine feeling, that came across believably, and with a few acts of honesty and courage, such as facing malicious gossip, or rapidly searching out and minimizing a threatening scandal, that make the story stand out, and the journey of this couple towards love unique. All this with strong emotions well tempered with common sense, for both hero and heroine, another feature I enjoyed a lot. Making life super complicated for everyone just because of not stopping and thinking a little, and not being just a little understanding, and just a tad generous with your partner, when there is room to do so, easily, that is a long standing irritation in love stories to me. People who are supposed to be in love and never find the strength to ask a few questions, and think over the answers, before quitting and running? Just not right, for me.

In all, very well done, even though the "villain" was a bit too pat, a card board figure, and reading about the other series' heroes was not really so interesting to me - I want them in their own books, not so much here. Both these aspects were so minor, that the 5 stars stand, for me.

I read romance for a believable love story taking the center stage.
I am just a little tired of everyone needing to include mystery, and intrigue, and and... Sometimes, just a love story is all I need - Balogh delivers perfectly, here, thank you, Ms. Balogh!

Much More than Enchanting 29. Oktober 2014
Von Danker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
ETA
When Balogh is at her best she is hard to beat and Only Enchanting delivers Balogh at her very best. It is beautiful, sensitive, heart-breakingly passionate and even poetic.
The intensity of this story - with the brain-damaged H and the heart-damaged h - is relentless throughout.
Balogh creates a fateful meeting between the outwardly handsome but inwardly tortured H and the outwardly plain but inwardly beautiful h. It is initially innocuous, even if the h is smitten at first sight. So far so good. Not much different from many other Regencies. Almost ho-hum.
Five months later they meet again, passing one another on a country lane and the earlier relative calm of the ballroom scene is replaced by tension, both physical and emotional. And that tension grows and grows as two damaged souls learn to support and understand and love one another - and, for those who need this with their romances, have multitudinous episodes of passionate sex.
In my view this book is successful for a whole range of reasons. Just a few are:
1 The writing is lovely.
2. The escalating tension is well delivered.
3. The treatments of the H's brain injury and memory losses and guilt and grief are all sensitive, empathetic and realistic.
4. The gradual understanding of how abandonment has impacted on the h is just as well depicted.
5. The love affair is gorgeous.
6. The sexual obsession for one another is totally credible and Balogh delivers that without falling back on cliched details of what goes where.
7. The reader gets to identify with and admire two wonderful siblings. David - who loved his brother enough to save him. And Dora - who loved her sister enough to become her mother, to set her free and to expect nothing in return for the sacrifices she made.
8. The h - Agnes - is gutsy (how else could she have survived the truly awful first meeting with her in-laws) and refuses to be victimised. And, very importantly, she loves her sister with great depth and admiration. And, when it matters, after some useful pre-knowledge from the H, she saves herself.
9. The H is cleverly revealed by Balogh to be much more than a handsome flirt with, as he describes it, a "cheese-hole" brain. He acknowledges, for example, that he passionately, albeit not sexually, loves the man who rescued him from madness and that he loves and relies on all the other members of the Survivors' Club, as well. He is evidently out-of-this-world handsome, but can also laugh at himself. Most importantly, he moves from using Agnes to help him feel safe, to an escalating need for her sexually, to wanting to make her happy, to admiring her integrity and courage and finally to loving her.

I could go on and on. There is so much about the h and H that is more than enchanting. I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I loved it. Loved it. Having decided that this series was a bit of a hit and miss for me, I am now eagerly awaiting the next instalment.

I bought this book from Amazon. I have NOT received a free review copy.

A solid installment of a good series 28. Oktober 2014
Von Jen (Red Hot Books) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I think in many ways this series is tailor-made for me. Each installment is focused on a survivor of the Napoleonic wars. Each has suffered in the aftermath: some, in more obvious ways than others. You know I love a tortured hero and these books are chock-full of them. In the hands of a lazy author, this could result in essentially the same story playing out over and over again, different in only the details. Thankfully, that’s not what happens here. I love how different Mary Balogh has made each one of these books, and especially, each one of her heroes. What’s more, she gives us just a taste of each man prior to his book, but then reveals him slowly over the course of his story.

As the book began, the only thing I knew about Flavian, Viscount Ponsonby, was that he had a stutter and that his fiance left him after the war. Here, we learn that there is so much more to his issues. You see, Flavian was shot in the head, took a nasty fall from his horse, and was nearly trampled to death. It left him brain damaged. He could not talk at all for some time; he had fits of rage; and even now, he has holes in his memory, both short and long term. That fiance not only left him, she left him for his best friend. And now, her husband is dead, leaving her sniffing around Flavian to rekindle their relationship. He wants no part of it.

Flavian is angry –and rightfully so– especially since his family is pushing him to wed the new widow. So when he becomes enchanted by the simple and seemingly safe Agnes Keeping, it seems a grand idea to try to make a life with her instead.

Readers of the series may remember Agnes as Sophie’s best friend from The Arrangement. She is a widowed artist who lives with her musically inclined spinster sister. She is comfortable in her life, but Flavian awakens passions in her that are downright terrifying. Yet she can’t turn him away. The story follows their whirlwind relationship as Flavian struggles to remember his old life and commit firmly to his new one –and Agnes tries to decide if love and passion will destroy her life or make it worth living.

I had a hard time believing in the super-fast development of this relationship. The way Flavian became so quickly enamored of Agnes just didn’t ring true. His snap assessment of her as “safe” seemed totally arbitrary and her acceptance of his suit after his inconsistent behavior was a little puzzling.

I did like the book overall, though. Flavian isn’t your standard tortured hero with the damage to his brain, and I liked the novelty of it. I liked that while he made some boneheaded choices in the beginning (specifically in keeping secrets) — he LEARNED from his mistakes and made better choices, even when they were difficult. I liked how well Agnes and Flavian complimented one another and I loved having a villain I could hate in his ex. Though the love connection was tenuous for me in the beginning, I was totally on-board with it by the end.

As always, the time spent with whole group in the survivor’s club was great. I love seeing this whole group together and watching the true family they are. I like this series a lot.

This made my heart glow 30. Oktober 2014
Von lark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really felt this story. We had always known Flavian's stammer resulted from wounds suffered during the Peninsular Wars, but this story told us the damage was far more severe and complex than I had known.

Though he couldn't really define it to himself, Flavian fell in love with Agnes during a waltz when he found her enchanting. The enchantment was mutual, between two seemingly disparate characters. Flavian and Agnes both had their fears, and it was beautiful to see their mutual love develop and strengthen.

This was written so well, with none of the irritations we frequently run into. When Flavian needed to get a clue, he got it. When Agnes felt something had to be said, she said it. No page after page of anyone suffering in silence. There was enough agitation by Flavian's erstwhile fiancee to stir the pot just enough. But that gal was no match for Flavian and Agnes.

I've never bookmarked so many pages of a novel in my life. So many memorable passages. I like endless epilogues, and no such luck here. The ending came quickly, and I would have deducted a star except that another Survivor's story is coming and I know the epilogue to this one will appear in Only a Promise: A Survivors' Club Novel (A Survivor's Club Novel).

Enjoy your reading! :)

Wonderful Story 30. Oktober 2014
Von arc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Mary Balogh is the only romance author I buy automatically. She has her less than stellar efforts but they are few and far between. This story and the previous "The Escape" are the best of this series so far. Balogh's books are all about relationships, grown up relationships. The principals are each dealing with past injuries, both emotional and, in Flavian's case, physical, and the focus of the story is how they deal with and overcome them both separately and together. Balogh does not heap one tragedy after another on them. There is no really evil mystery or villain for melodrama. His former fiancée is a spoiled trouble maker but she's not hiring assassins, just making verbal jabs and spreading a few rumors. His mother is a bit of a snob but she comes around Flavian has gaps in his memory which from time to time return to him giving him more insight into his past but he doesn't have to be in duels, get knocked in the head or suffer horrible trauma to jog his memory. Agnes is certainly emotionally guarded due to her abandonment as a child but she is not whiney, overwrought or a victim. They are both very passionate people and regardless of anything else enjoy that aspect of their marriage. Balogh treats sex and desire as normal human activities. There is nothing cosmic or soul shattering about it and she does not use it as a cure all or to end every encounter. It's fun and intimate and they feel good about it. The ending is sweet and satisfying. Balogh's characters, all of them, are neither 100% hero nor 100% villain. All are flawed but the relationships they build are what is so satisfying about these books. I highly recommend.

Only Enchanting 30. Oktober 2014
Von Farrah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A sweet and emotional historical romance, Only Enchanting was a lovely read. It wasn't quite as good as I hoped it would be, but it was still an enjoyable romance.

Agnes was the type of heroine that was quietly strong. She was resilient and, when she was determined, nothing could shake her. I thought she was an overall lovely character.

Flavian was a cutie. He went through, and was still going through, a lot of turmoil from his injury. It altered his entire life but he didn't allow it to make him bitter. He was sometimes confused and occasionally unable to organize his thoughts, but he was also sweet and a great hero.

The romance was okay. The thing is, I'm used to deep and rich relationships from Mary Balogh. For some reason, I didn't quite get that. I never felt like Agnes and Flavian truly knew each other or got the sense that they felt deeply devoted to each other. And it was annoying how none of Flavian's family gave him or Agnes enough credit with how they all assumed that he married Agnes for petty revenge. His friends had faith in him but his mother and sister didn't and that was frustrating. However, I still liked Agnes and Flavian as a couple. They both understood and accepted each other as they were. I just wish I had gotten a deeper look into their relationship.

The plot was steadily paced and kept me interested the entire way through. Despite my issue with the romance, I still enjoyed the romance and the ending was lovely.

Only Enchanting was an enjoyable romance. With deep emotions and a sweet romance, it was a nice read. Romance lovers, this might be something you want to look up.
