Hero Justin is rich, notorious and titled he's a Marquis and in true romance novel fashion, completely uninterested in settling down or making a commitment - till he sees the h Serena of course. After the funeral, Serena is whisked away to Justin's home Mandrake, where there are many mysteries and oddities for her to solve including the enigma called Harriet, the H's mother..
One of the most interesting characters here, Justin' mother AKA, Snow White's Stepmother who suffers from a mortal fear of losing her looks is one of the most intriguing books vamps I've ever come across.
I've read of evil mom-in-laws before, but Harriet MIL is in a league of her own. She lives the life of a rockstar with parties everyday, gambling, alcohol, drugs and multiple paramours, almost unapologetically. What's more, she's a part time smuggler gasp!
Her feelings for her son are lukewarm at best, although, she does worry for him when he sustains injuries during a duel. And as with most evil MILs, she cannot stand the virginal and sweet h and takes it upon herself to get rid of her in one way or another including but not limited to getting her abducted by malicious men with less than honourable intentions. The rest of the story revolves around the plotting and the machinations of Justin's mother and how Serena overcomes it all with brief romantic interludes with the H that barely go beyond a fluttering feeling in the heart or a quickening of breath.
This was Insta love at it's best as with most Barbara Cartland novels. The HEA, when it finally arrives, does so after a storm of drama and action that's bound to appeal to the most jaded of readers. As a teenager I've read many of this author's books and generally enjoyed the light hearted and mostly clean romance that she served up Now, almost 20 years later, I find that I still appreciate her writing style.
This may not be the ultimate romance novel, but it can hold its own through its sheer storytelling power. I really enjoyed the plot as ridiculous as it was in certain portions and I certainly don't mind revisiting and re-reading some of her other classics that I'd read so many years ago.
Four stars. Jan 03, Neringa Neringiukas rated it really liked it. I find about this book, when first I saw movie. And I loved the movie. So, I got the book and love it too.
Serena lost everything, when her father lost a game of cards. She lost not only her home, but her father and herself. Her father was hooked on gambling and in the moment of weaknes, he pawned his own, only daughter.
And then, don't being able to face up, what he done, he shoot himself. Yeah, I'm pissed here too. Put his own daughter on game of cards, lose her a I find about this book, when first I saw movie. Put his own daughter on game of cards, lose her and then take an easy way out? Leaving her alone to slurp his shit? What a piece of cowards shit. And the man, who win the house, Serena, is an old pervert, who drooled over her for a long time.
But Serena don't wanna have anything to do with him. And maybe some angel was looking after her, because on the same night someone else offered to the old boar, to play cards with him. And that someone is a rake Justin, Marquise of Vulcan.
Buy for others
And he wins. Justin wasn't especting, that his new charge is a young beautiful woman. So, he doesn't know what exactly do with her.
He takes Serena to his home, Mandrake. Which isn't as it seems at first sight. Mandrake has a lot of secrets. Which Serena slowly finds out one by one. She also finds out that her heart beats much faster, when she is next to Justin. Justin is a cynical and jaded, by greedy women.
A Hazard of Hearts
Which one of them his own mother. What he ever saw, was how she never having enough money. She needs more and more and more. And let me say, she was on my shit list from the moment, when she decided to earn some money on expense of Serena. Which leads to her being abducted by that old boar, when Justins bitch of a mother solds her. You are pissed, right? Because I so wanted to wack the bitch and then kick in the nuts of old boar.
But don't worry. Serena had a rescue from unsuspected source. And back to Justin.
After spending time with Serena, he starts to see, that she is a rare diamond in a fake high society. And he would be an idiot to letting it go. If you love historical stories, this is a must read. PS Now I'm not sure, but it could be that some parts I mentioned could be from the movie.
So, watch it too. Yeah, yeah. I wanna you to watch it too. Oct 24, M rated it liked it. One thing I like about Cartland's books is her stories always have historical background. Hazard of Hearts is fascinating and successfully keeps me glued to it, and I daresay this is one of the best books she writesLord Vulcan is awesome, the plot is quite complex, and I like it when the lovey-dovey scene is put at the end of the story, which makes the whole story 'dignified'.
And I've just realized that Madame never used such word as "orgasm", instead she replaced it with "heavenly". May 26, SallyB rated it really liked it Shelves: Barbara Cartland absolutely outdid herself in HofH. This is my favourite book of hers. I would re-read it every year. It took me a little searching to find an e-book version and finally found a gritty uploady version which was worth it.
I think Amazon sells it for a ridiculous amount as it is old and hard to find. Highly recommend for vintage lovers.
May 20, Syarifah rated it it was amazing. I looked for this book for ages after watching the drama adaptation with Helena Bonham Carter and Marcus Gilbert. When I finally got a copy of this book and read it, it was even better.
Apr 23, LaFleurBleue rated it really liked it Shelves: By far the best Barbara Cartland I read. Good plot, interesting characters that are not overly simplified, as can be. A very good historical romance, which I recommand. It is obviously demure. Jun 25, Carolyn rated it really liked it. Love Love Love this romance! Having said that, there are some parts in the book that I did not like and that didn't make sense.
So, this story is about a young woman Serena Staverley who has lost her mother in child birth and lives with her father, who just loves to gamble.
There's this evil man in the story, Lord Wrotham who has always beat her father and one day Serena's father bets everything he owns including his daughter's hand in marriage. So in comes the hero Justin Vulcan, a man known to be cold and has never lost a bet in his life, he overhears the bet, and when Lord Staverley leaves, he bets Wrotham and beat him, but it's too late, because Mr.
Staverley gets into a 'stupid' fight and gets killed. That's the part I didn't like. So Lord Vulcan wins a house and the hand of a stranger he's never met. Serena, is a strong and curious young woman strongly accepts her fate to be indebted to Lord Vulcan even though her cousin tries to save her by marrying her, she meets him and he said she should move into their family home, where his mother is.
This is where the story picks up pace. Justin's mother is an addicted gambler and gangster. In the book Barbara paints her as getting into everything, fortune tellers, drugs. Some of it is just too far out for me. Serena learns that the rumors about Justin just isn't true.
At various parts of the story he says romantic things in a strange way, to her.. There is a big, dark secret at Mandrake, and Serena His mother wants to remain the 'queen' of Mandrake and doesn't want Justin to ever marry anyone and when a terrible abduction occurs and Justin defends Serena the inevitable happens as she goes to rescue him and gets compromised. How far will his mother go to stop it?
There is a movie and it's available at Amazon. It's much better 'organized' than parts of the book. Near the end of the book when Serena is running for her life, Vulcan's mother chases her and stops midway and goes in another direction. In the movie, she keeps chasing her until she reaches her fate. It just makes more sense that way.
And as usual all's well that ends well. You will not be disappointed if you pick up a copy of this book. Apr 06, D. Normally I would not read Cartland but I came across some of the plot whilst researching the Regency Era and then saw similarities there that forced me to investigate the book.
Before getting it I saw the cheesy film version which is much more readily available in the teens of the 21st century then the book is.
Where once Cartland was recognized as a queen of the genre, i do not think she holds up well. We have added more history and attention to the details of the period than Ms. Cartland seeme Normally I would not read Cartland but I came across some of the plot whilst researching the Regency Era and then saw similarities there that forced me to investigate the book. Cartland seemed to have here in this sampling of her style and tale.
Where it might be fine for those who like their romances in such a way that there is a hero, a villain, and a heroine, I can't seem to allow Cartland to have a hold on me as either Austen or Heyer does of writers who have left us. Or more modern writers whom give me enjoyment. The tale revolves around the plot line of a woman being lost to our hero over the turn of the play at cards. I think we are assured now in our study of the regency that even were such play to be done, it would be considered debasing against all sides, and that would mean the hero we learn to know in this story, Lord Vulcan, would never engage in such.
Or should he try, countless other gentlemen witnessing this would stop them. Cartland, though may not have stopped at such a study of the Regency in order to create her plot and tell her tale. I think that is the disconnect. Of course, this wouldn't be a Barbara Cartland novel if the heroine doesn't do a couple of stupid things that temporarily derail the smooth route to a happy ever after.
Serena, in her haste to save the H and show him how much she loves him, ends up creating more difficulties for herself and the H: 1. She rushes off, without a chaperone, to look for him after she hears that he's been wounded in a duel with Lord Wrotham. This ends up with an immediate emergency marriage of convenience because Justin has to save her reputation. Then, she mistakenly assumes that he's involved with a courtesan called La Flamme.
This makes her lie to him about being in love with some other man.
See a Problem?
The H, who's in love with her, gets angry and heartbroken and leaves her alone at Mandrake while he drowns his sorrows in alcoholic stupor at his London townhouse. It turned out that La Flamme used to his mistress but was currently the mistress of another guy called Sir Peter. The dowager goes ballistic because she doesn't want her position in the household to be threatened by a new marchioness.
She goes against her son's written orders and refuses to vacate the formal bedchambers that the current marchioness is supposed to use.
And, as if that's not bad enough, she treats Serena to even more vile insults and orders the servants to ignore the heroine's status as the current marchioness. Then, she threatens Serena and bullies her so badly that the heroine runs off in the heavy fog and fall off a cliff! When the dowager thinks she's gotten rid of Serena, she imbibes a lot of opium and tries to make a deal with a group of smugglers because she's badly in need of money to support her gambling addiction and knows that Justin will not provide any.
Her behaviour is so appalling that the smugglers get angry and stone her to death: "Stone me, would you, thieves? For that you shall cry on your knees for mercy. But she got no further. Another stone, a big one, caught her between the eyes, and as she staggered with the impact of the blow, there came another and yet another.
There was a sudden cry of voices, harsh and inhuman, and for one moment Padlett's voice was high above the rest. Stop it. Stones were flying through the air, one after another they crashed against her, beating the Marchioness to her knees and then to the ground.
She gave one cry, but it was lost in the general milee of sound. There was a noise, guttural and thick, such as an animal makes when it pulls down its prey, and then suddenly there was only the sound of footsteps running down the tunnel towards the open sea.
There was a shout, an incoherent noise, a splashing of oars as if they hastily and without caution struck the water.Having said that, there are some parts in the book that I did not like and that didn't make sense.
Jul 25, Nadosha rated it really liked it Shelves: The movie was the opposite!
I think we are assured now in our study of the regency that even were such play to be done, it would be considered debasing against all sides, and that would mean the hero we learn to know in this story, Lord Vulcan, would never engage in such. The biggest of these is the H's evil mother Harriet, the dowager marchioness. Return to Book Page.
Original Title. The men were nearly all middle-aged, rich, raffish and heavily flirtatious, while the women with their glittering array of jewellery, their painted faces, dyed hair and fashionable affectations might all have been related; and they certainly had that similar antipathy to each other which relations so often display. It took me a little searching to find an e-book version and finally found a gritty uploady version which was worth it.
Her behaviour is so appalling that the smugglers get angry and stone her to death:
