Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Putney ( The Diabolical Baron ) sugarcoats the unsavory premise of this story about two people who, thrown together by an accident of fate, heal each other from the wounds of childhood. In 1799 Scotland, Gervase Brandelin, the victim of a sexually abusive mother, is livid when forced to wed Mary Hamilton, a deranged clergyman's innocent daughter whom he has unwittingly compromised, and promptly rapes her following the ceremony. After years of separation, they meet again, but Gervase does not recognize his wife. Instead, he knows her as Diana Lindsay, whom he believes to be an accomplished courtesan and whom he woos to become his mistress. Through the tender courtship and through Gervase's kindness to the epileptic son conceived in the brutality of their wedding night, the pair experiences unsullied love for the first time and discovers the joys of family. Gervase's involvement in the super-secret espionage service working to undermine Napoleon adds spice and atmosphere. (Mar . )
Romantic Times - Melinda Helfer
“Dearly Beloved sets a new standard of excellence for historical romance. One of the best books of this or any other year.”
www.romrevtoday.com - Terrie Figueroa
“Brimming with betrayal, passion, intrigue and love, Dearly Beloved is a novel that no romance reader should miss….one of my all time favorites…It's a novel that will touch your heart, and a perfect example of what a romance novel should be.”
Affaire de Coeur - Staff Review
“Marvelous characters and excellent plotting…charming and wonderfully romantic.”

Meet the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney is also a recipient of RWA’s Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award. She was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she’s had a number of her books listed as top romances by Library Journal and Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she’ll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She’s delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

    Good story line but took a long time getting there

    I love Mary Jo Putney, she's a great author, however I didn't like this book so much compared to her others. It took a while to get to the good part, the conflict between the two characters. The characters and the villain were great though, just thought the book was a little long. Easy to put down.

    A Must Have for any romance fan!...Big Ed's Girl

    Usually when reading a romance, I find myself loving the hero and envying the heroine....usually. Diana Lindsay is one of the most memorable characters I've ever encountered in over 40 years of avid reading. She has a strength of will and a generosity of spirit, but is by no means perfect. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a story full of laughter, tears, action, and love. You will be so glad you did!

    not the best by the author, but still good

    After I read all the books in the Fallen Angels series by Ms. Putney, I found this title in a used book store. It's her first historical romance, and while the story was interesting and the characters were well-drawn (as they usually are in Ms. Putney's novels), I just didn't warm up to the hero and heroine as much as I did with the main characters in say, the Fallen Angels series. In particular, I found Gervase (the hero) to be almost abusive to Diana (the heroine) in many of their encounters. It's not until very near the end of the book that the reader discovers the reasons for Gervase's behavior, and by then, it's very nearly too late to muster up much sympathy for him. Still, compared to other authors' early efforts, this is not a bad way to spend one's reading time.

    GOOD READ

    PUTNEY BOOKS ARE NEW TO ME JUST BECAUSE I DIDN'T THINK HER WRITING WAS TO MY TASTE. I WAS INCORRECT AND NOW HAVE DOZENS OF HER WRITINGS TO OCCUPY MY TIME. IN DEARLY BELOVED THE WRITER TAKES ON NOT ONLY EPILEPSY BUT HOMOSEXUALITY--A RARE FIND IN A ROMANCE BOOK. THE TWO ARE PROFOUNDLY APROPOS TO THE STORYLINE. ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 IT IS MAYBE A 3--BUT I WILL NOT EXPECT ANY MORE FROM PUTNEY AND THAT IS AN OKAY WITH ME.THE STORY CARRIES THE READER FROM THE VERY FIRST PARAGRAPH-AS A GOOD BOOK SHOULD.
