Overview

To coincide with Zebra's upcoming April 1999 publication of "With All My Heart", Jo Goodman's final installment of her Thorne Brothers Trilogy, we are reissuing the book that started it all. "My Steadfast Heart" begins the saga of the three Thorne brothers, robbed of their inheritance and separated as children, who fight to be reunited and to take back all that is theirs.

Penniless aristocrat Mercedes Leydon is beautiful and desperate. Colin Thorne is claiming the estate of her dissolute uncle, the Earl of Weybourne, as payment for a gambling debt. Now Mercedes will use anything--lies, promises--even her own body--to stop Thorne from destroying her life and the lives of the Earl's children. Ads in Romantic Times. Original.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mercedes Leyden comes-with a dagger hidden in her underwear-to the Passing Fancy Inn to murder a clipper captain, Colin Thorne, who has won her family's estate in a boat race. This sensual Regency by the author of Only in My Arms launches a trilogy about the Thorne boys, who were separated in a London workhouse after their aristocratic parents had been slaughtered by highwaymen. Like Colin, Mercedes, who has been physically abused by her uncle and guardian, has had to survive by using her wit. And it is to Goodman's credit that her heroine often sounds just as intelligent as she's supposed to be. Although he's masterful and powerful, Colin is no bully. He sets out to win Mercedes with kindness, trust and good sex, and to be a father to her four young cousins. The complicated plot breaks down as the book goes on, and there is the unattractive mixture of sex and brutality that seems to be increasingly popular in the genre. ("The braided leather whip snapped against her shoulder, raising an immediate welt beneath her nightshirt.") (Mar.)

    Good but....

    Don't get me wrong. I really did like this book and before it was done I bought the second book. It had deep emotions and the plot was great too. What I didnt like was the fact that I couldnt connect with Colin. I know that he had a brooding character but the author didnt give as much insight about him as she did with Mercades. It was obviouse that she was a self sacreficing character with a soft heart. I could connect with her emotions on how she tried to protect the kids. What I couldnt understand was the way Colin treated her. Iy is not the fact that his actions were not okay. It was the fact that she gives no clue on what he is thinking. Most of the book he wasnt mean he was just indeferent. I had no idea if he really didnt care or he acted that way. He didnt care that she had bruises all over her body and later even after he go to know her he didnt ask why she needed the money as long as he used the money to sleep with her which to tell the truth turned my stomach since it wasnt rape but between a rock and hard place she decided to become his mistress. He didnt care about her emotions and until he told her in one breath that he thaught she was a murderer and the next breath that he loved her I didnt know what was going on in his mind. It was hard to get connected to the love story when the hero even thogh he has come to understand the heroine's character still treats her bad. There was no remorse and no clue over the fact that he felt any thing but distrust for her untill more than half way in the book when all of a sudden out of the blue he tells her he loves her and after that he was a different character but still we dont know what is going on in his head. I still think that if the author gave him a little more voice, the book would have been. amazing. It is still a very good book and worth every penny. You wont be disappointed

    Not bad

    This book was ok. I thought the storyline was a good concept, but a little forced. I liked Colin's character, and yet I didn't like Meresades character. She was a little bland. It was hard to relate to the character. Also the plot was a little jumbled and made it hard to believe the conflict among the main characters. Great concept, but poorly developed.

    Liked it!

    This book almost read more like a historical epic than a romance. It had everything, great character development, complex story, lots of action, humor, and romance. I liked it a lot. Im looking forward to the next two books jn the series!
