The Secret Pearl

Mary Balogh
Rating 2

He first spies her in the shadows outside a London theatre, a ravishing creature forced to barter her body to survive.

To the woman known simply as Fleur, the well-dressed gentleman with the mesmerizing eyes is an unlikely savior. And when she takes the stranger to her bed, she never expects to see him again. But then Fleur accepts a position as governess to a young girl…and is stunned to discover that her midnight lover is a powerful nobleman. As two wary hearts ignite–and the threat of scandal hovers over them–one question remains: will she be mistress or wife?

REVIEW: Having read Mary in the past I sort of had an expectation about this book. I was expecting it to be like her Bedwyn series full of adventure and intrigue with a very good love story thrown in. I was very disappointed. I could barely finish the book, in fact I had to skim whole parts of it just to get through it. I don’t recommend this one to anyone. This is also a AAR Top 100 Book, I haven’t been able to figure out why though.
