Angsty, humours, and a compelling romance.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 May 2021
Loving a Lost Lord is the first is a series of Regency romances from Mary Jo Putney. We follow Mariah, a young woman of means who finds herself inventing a husband to keep another man at bay. Her prayers seem to be answered when she finds a half-drowned man on the beach who has lost his memory. I picked this book up specifically for the amnesia trope, and it delivered. Not only did it provide the angst that I was hoping for, but it didn’t overpower the story. The man, Adam, still had a personality despite not remembering his own name. The book made me laugh to my self at some of the more absurd moments, but it also has all the drama of a good romance. As a character, Mariah was a lot more proactive than I was expecting, and I really enjoyed that she knew how to do it for herself. As Adam is half Hindustani, I especially loved the contrasts and comparisons to Christianity and the way it was weaved into the story. Although I must admit that I cannot speak for the validity of the representation of the Hindu aspects of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading more from the author, especially now that I have started two of her romance series’.
Way ahead of the BridgertonsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 March 2021
I really liked the way the author took the regency novel genre and its familiar tropes and did something very original with them. Way before Netflix this book introduced a mixed heritage hero and unusual heroine, as well as touching on racism. It also challenges social conventions but within the limits of the time. Witty dialogue and exciting plot...even if a bit of an unbelievable tying up of all the loose ends in the final chapters. But top marks for originality combined with good writing.
Enjoyed itReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 September 2019
I enjoyed this. To be honest, it was fairly predictable, but that didn't matter as long as I was enjoying the journey. I'm not quite as intrigued by the other characters (that I assume are the heroes of their own books in the series) but maybe they'll get my attention in later books. This was a good read and I intend to read the second book.

Far too many coincidences and cliches.....Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 September 2009
One of my top ten historical romances ever is by MJP - The Rake - and I just can't believe that this book is written by the same person!? I haven't read her most recent books because they are not my thing but she has returned to historical romance and I decided I would definitely give it a go. I'm just glad I bought it 2nd hand on Amazon and didn't throw good money away on a new copy. The plot is unbelievable but so are other plots in other books yet if it's well written and the characters are good then you can suspend your disbelief. This book was not only full of unlikely coincidences but it was so flat, the characters so uninspiring and one dimensional, the cliches and coincidences piled high one on top of the other that I was just snorting in total disbelief by the time the last long lost family turned up with barely any outrage on the part of the heroine (whose father had deceived her all her life). I am deeply disappointed and I definitely won't be giving any of the other books in the series a look in. Straight to the charity shop with my copy.
