A Hazard of Hearts by Barbara Cartland

So, this story is about a young woman Serena Staverley who has lost her mother in child birth and lives with her father, who just loves to gamble. In the book, Serena’s father lost directly to Justin – Serena’s father did not shoot himself as in the lf instead he provoked a renowned marksman into a duel and shot in the air at the duel Where once Cartland was recognized as a queen of the genre, i do not think heatts holds up well.

The best part of the ending was seeing the big bad hero fall to knees and confess his insta-love for the sweet, demure and beautiful ingenue heroine: But she got no further.

The heafts is also appealing. The MC’s finally come to a compromise after they meet and discuss the terms of the wager: This was one of Barbara Cartland’s more enjoyable novels. I really enjoyed the plot as ridiculous as it was in certain portions and I certainly don’t mind revisiting and re-reading some of her other classics that I’d read so many years ago. That’s the part I didn’t like. Another stone, a big one, caught her between the eyes, and as she staggered with the impact of the blow, there came another and yet another.


I admit that the turns of the plot were not wholly convincing at some points, and some even felt implausible and a bit too dramatic for my taste, but the story is written with suc I finished reading Hazard Of Hearts two months ago and totally loved it. It’s much better ‘organized’ than parts of the book. The dowager will get 10 pounds from Lord Wrotham, since the heroine’s dowry will only be released to her husband.

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. But Serena don’t wanna have anything to do with him.

The biggest of these is the H’s evil mother Harriet, the dowager marchioness.

Her father was hooked on gambling and in the moment of weaknes, he pawned his own, only daughter. The movie and the book were not exactly the same! After spending time with Serena, he starts to see, that she is a rare diamond in a fake high society. Stones were flying through the air, one after another they crashed against her, beating the Marchioness to her knees and then to the ground.

She also campaigns for the rights of Gypsies, midwives and nurses. Put his own daughter on game of cards, lose her and then take an easy way out? Hero Justin is rich, notorious and titled he’s a Marquis and in true romance novel fashion, completely uninterested in settling down or making a commitment – till he sees the h Serena of course.


In the book he had fled to Holland after dishonourably shooting Justin too early in the duel, and was never mentioned again. Oddly, although my favourite books to read are historical romances especially Georgette Heyerand although Barbara Cartland wrote an astonishing books in her lifetime, this is the first time I have actually read one.

A HAZARD OF HEARTS : Barbara Cartland :

And the man, who win the house, Serena, is an old pervert, who drooled over her for a long time. I admit that the turns of the plot were not wholly convincing at some points, and some even felt implausible and a bit too dramatic for cartlanx taste, but the story is written with such beauty and feeling that I couldn’t but overlook these defects.

The OW gets mad at this and ends up taking out her anger on the heroine, oof being spiteful and nasty. 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.

Looking for beautiful books? If you love historical stories, this is a must read. Always I was afraid to obey the instincts of my own heart, always I was trying to catch you out, to find you less pure, less fine, than you appeared. Paperbackpages.

The movie really brought the book to live, amazing! Topics historical romancefictionBarbara Cartland.
