A Saga of Hearts 2 books. So, I got the book and love it too. 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’.

A HAZARD OF HEARTS : Barbara Cartland :

Isobel is the widowed sister of the H’s best friend and she’s obsessed with getting Justin to propose to her. We have added more history and attention to the details of the period than Ms.

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. Staverley gets into a ‘stupid’ fight and gets killed. Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet. This book is with me. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. Worse still, it seems that he went willingly, even deliberately to his death.

Suspend my disbelief, but do not force me to think that this is an alternate universe. It just makes more sense that way.

There was quite a bit of angst in this novel but it was also fluffy and cute too because that’s what Barbara Cartland specialized in. Books by Barbara Cartland.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Paperbackpages.

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.


After her arrival at his ancestral home of Mandrake, she discovers by chance the secrets of his family, and is thrust into a world of smugglers, highwaymen, abduction and murder. Jul 01, Marie rated it it was amazing.

Serena lost everything, when her father lost a game of cards. 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. What’s the Name o This may not be the ultimate romance novel, but it can hold its own through its sheer storytelling power. Cartland, though may not have stopped at such a study of the Regency in order to create her plot and tell her tale.

That’s the part I didn’t like. I could not believe, you see, that anyone could be so beautiful, so perfect as you – and come to me unsullied, unspoilt. Apr 24, Debby rated it really liked it Shelves: The movie and the book were not exactly the same!

She gave one cry, but it was lost in the general milee of sound. Strict mourning was a thing Thus in the end, I can not recommend this work to others who like the Regency, and since it was difficult enough for me to find, 65 years after it was first published, seeing it fade away from the canon of regencies we read might be better than urging any to find it and read it as well.

Although young, she is capable and level-headed, she also doesn’t unnecessarily martyr herself. Very dark for Barbara Book ratings by Goodreads. What he ever saw, was how she never having enough money. The book has a certain gothic feel to it as the film and some very wonderful images, especially in the beginning with the garden and the flowers but the story of the film was far superior than the book’s story.


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. Love Love Love this romance! Advanced embedding details, examples, and help!

A Hazard of Hearts

The dowager will get 10 pounds from Lord Wrotham, since the heroine’s dowry will only be released to her husband. The H is always cordial to Isobel but he’s not interested in her romantically.

It has a very gothic feel and there is a lot of meat to the story. Justin is oblivious to all of this since she is so good at lying to him, but he’s smart enough to not give her additional funds when she begs him: Or should he try, countless other gentlemen witnessing this would stop them.

Cartland seemed to have here in this sampling of her style and tale. Bearts had just started to discover the romance genre as a young teen, so imagine how thrilled I was that there were film adaptations of some of Barbara Cartland’s romances!

The hero was dreamy, of course, and the heroine young and naive. Justin is a cynical and jaded, by greedy women. Having said that, there are some parts in the book that I did not like and that didn’t make sense.
