True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Book Review: Web of Love by Mary Balogh



Book 2 in the Web Trilogy

Web of love is a reprint of one of Mary Balogh's earlier novels. This is the second in the Web series that started with The Gilded Web. I really enjoyed this book as with all of Ms. Balogh's novels the characters are very believable and flushed out and you come to care for them very easily.

This novel is about the second Eden man Lieutenant Dominic "Lord" Eden. When his best friend is killed and he himself severely wounded at the famous battle of Waterloo, Dominic's life forever changes. He travels severely wounded back to tell his friend's wife that his friend and her dear husband were killed. She nurses him back to health and the two quickly fall in love. But the guilt of that love coming so close on the heels of Ellen Simpson's being widowed (she was deeply in love with her husband) threatens to keep the two apart forever.

Rich in atmosphere and great supporting characters as well this is a novel that I would highly recommend to anyone that likes a good Regency romance. And with it's being set partly in Brussels and then at the battlefields including Waterloo it is a refreshing change of place than most regency based novels (though of course they do travel back to England for the last half of the book.)

Even though this is the second book in this series it can easily be enjoyed as a stand alone as I myself had not read the first book in the series but the author does a wonderful job of informing you of any parts you might need to know from it so it can be read as a part of a series or as a book to itself as well. I know I will be looking forward to reading the other books in this series now as I'm looking very forward to seeing what happens with Dominic's twin sister Lady Madeline in the third book.


BOOK BLURB

He’d served with her husband on the battlefield—and secretly desired her for years. Yet for Dominic, Lieutenant Lord Eden, Ellen Simpson has remained tantalizingly out of reach—until she is widowed by the war. Suddenly pursued by the dangerously handsome nobleman, Ellen is stunned by the depth of attraction he arouses in her. Soon their friendship flames into something deeper…and as scandal ignites, marriage seems the only solution. But Ellen has a secret—one she can share with no one—that prevents her from fully opening her heart to Dominic. Until he devises his own plan for the ultimate consummation of their passion—and the woman he is determined to possess at any cost…
