Anna felt foolish for believing that her nightmare past was over. She told Lucas that she had married only in the hope that her new husband would take care of her family.
Lucas was furious that he had allowed himself to feel for someone again - and told Anna that he had married her only because of the duty of his station.

REVIEW: Heartless by Mary Balogh
Janine C Reviews historical romance 21 Comments. Your older, angstier books are generally reliable in that even if when they are flawed, they make it easy for me to turn the pages. Such was the case with Heartless. It is the Georgian-era story of Lucas Kendrick, Duke of Harndon, and Anna Marlowe, the woman he marries after having only known her for a week. Ten years before, Luke had a falling out with his family after a duel with his older brother, and even the death of that brother eight years later did not bring him to England immediately.
