Re: Every Bride Needs a Groom (1:49pm October 8, 2016):
When Mr Wonderful left me - with no money, no food, no long distance phone,and no knowledge of how to drive a car, I had to get a job. A friend found me a job (this was during the holiday season) working as a conductor on a mall's tiny train for children coming to see Santa. My uniform was Oshkosh- B - Gosh stripped overalls, a white shirt, and a striped hat to match. I looked like a tall, wrinkled toddler. At first, every time I saw a family, I wanted to cry. Then I started seeing this scene as it really was, it was hysterical.
And I got out of the house, had something to think about and made a teeny tiny bit of money. I will not even talk about the fact that I bought my first car with a credit card.
Re: Love's Sweet Revenge (2:28pm September 17, 2016):
It sounds as though you will be getting attention for your release. And the cover is also an attention getter. You have covered your bases in a very professional manner.
Re: A Scandalous Adventure (12:41pm August 6, 2016):
Not ale to do adventures as I once did, so my favorite adventure is to immerse myself in a book. I like historicals which include adventure and cozy mysteries which challenge the characters.
Re: Miss Darcy's New Companion (4:48pm July 2, 2016):
I love the covers. They make me feel as if I have gone back in time. Most of all, I love the premise of stories which return me to the world of Jane Austen.
Re: The Memory Garden (4:31pm May 6, 2014):
I have seen perfect gardens, just have never had one of my own. I believe that perfect means plants that we find beautiful, and I happen to find most plants lovely. Mint can be aggressive, but the winner is bamboo. I understand that within 48 hours after the bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, bamboo was growing. Having met bamboo up close and personally, I can believe it.

I live in Texas - I love guys in hats and boots
Re: The Roses Underneath (4:04pm January 31, 2014):
I believe that great art is a representation of history - I think it would be very sad to have it lost. We can learn what people thought and felt at a time long ago from what represents the art people of that time admired.
Re: Sadie's Secret (11:26am January 18, 2014):
I like the idea of adventure, mystery and romance. Thanks for the excerpt.
Re: Limoncello Yellow (2:31pm January 14, 2014):
A toss up - Austin - San Francisco - New Orleans - all have a lot of music going on - Austin (my hometown) has several music festivals which draw wonderful talent.
Re: A Lady's Secret Weapon (7:09pm October 18, 2013):
I am a fan of Romance - I am a fan of Mysteries. Your books would be stories I would love. Congratulations on your new release.
Re: Virtual Heaven (7:02pm September 5, 2013):
Have never played a fantasy game, but I know that it would be a fantasy for me to visit Ocean City NJ. It looks like a step into the past. And then the fantasy game could take me into a completely other world.,
Re: The Arrangement (12:17pm August 24, 2013):
Ms Balogh, You are such a talented writer that the characters you create are real people in many ways. The fact that you have been dealing with people damaged by war, can certainly speak to anyone who is here in the world today.
Thank you for creating so many wonderful people, both men and women for your readers.
Re: Reckless (2:46pm July 24, 2013):
Hal Needham was one of the best and most productive stunt men ever, and he directed a few movies. One of the earliest stuntmen was Yakima Kanute who became a good friend to John Wayne.
Re: Rugged Hearts (2:44pm July 24, 2013):
I had an aunt who was loving and nurturing - and helped me tremendously. My English teacher for my junior and senior years of high school encouraged me to be the best I could be, and she was heroic to me.
Re: Wish You Were Here (5:40pm June 28, 2013):
When I was a child, the Bookmobile was my best friend. I entered kindergarten as the only one in my class who could read. Nancy Drew was my first long term relationship with a series and an author. And Little Women was the first time I realized romance was absolutely wonderful.
Re: X Marks The Scot (12:35pm February 21, 2013):
I am of Scottish background, and an exciting Scot would appeal - big time.
Re: Checkmate, My Lord (12:34pm February 21, 2013):
I think the secondary characters which appeal to me a great deal are the little girl and the stable boy who took care to not break a heart.
Re: A Christmas Bride / Christmas Beau (11:34am November 27, 2012):
I love all of your books Mary. But, the Christmas ones have seemed to affect me a great deal.
Re: The Secret Mistress (12:24pm July 31, 2012):
I think any male, beta or alpha created by Mary Balogh will be a good man. They end up being loving to the loves of their lives...and that is always a good thing.
Re: A Scandalous Countess (4:00pm February 9, 2012):
Both eras are interesting - but I believe the Georgian is more exciting - the world was changing quickly. On the other hand, a guy in high heels and a beauty mark just does not do it for me. Of course I have never met a guy with high heels and a beauty mark, so what do I know?
