Mary Balogh
Mary Balogh is a Welsh-Canadian author of historical fiction. She writes the Dark Angel, Bedwyn Family, Mistress, Simply Quartet, Huxtable Quintet, Survivor’s Club series (as well as others). Born Mary Jenkins, she grew up in Swansea, Wales and moved to Canada on a teaching contract following university. It was at that time when she met the man who would become her husband, Robert Balogh. It would be another 16 years before she would start writing. Her novels are set during the Regency or Georgian period. Her female lead characters are frequently not the highly respected “lady-like” type, but rather a lower class type of woman.

Mary Balogh became a published novelist in 1985 with the novel A Masked Deception. It was later re-issued as Desire After Dark as part of a perfume promo. Below is a list of Mary Balogh’s books in order of when they were originally released:

    I have read quite a few of your books and am now trying to get more of your earlier books. Some are e-books and some are paper back. I only hope I live long enough to read them all. I am almost 78. Thanks for all your lovely books.
