    About " Mary Jo Putney "

  • Mary Jo Putney

    She writes young adult fiction as M.J Putney.Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure After earning degrees in English Literature and Industrial Design at Syracuse University, she did various forms of design work in California and England before inertia took over in Balti, Maryland, where she has lived very comfortably ever since.While becoming a novelist was her ultimate fantasy, it never occurred to her that writing was an achievable goal until she acquired a computer for other purposes When the realization hit that a computer was the ultimate writing tool, she charged merrily into her first book with an ignorance that illustrates the adage that fools rush in where angels fear to tread Fortune sometimes favors the foolish and her first book sold quickly, thereby changing her life forever, in most ways for the better But why didn t anyone tell me that writing would change the way one reads Like a lemming over a cliff, she gave up her freelance graphic design business to become a full time writer as soon as possible.Since 1987, Ms Putney has published twenty nine books and counting Her stories are noted for psychological depth and unusual subject matter such as alcoholism, death and dying, and domestic abuse She has made all of the national bestseller lists including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USAToday, and Publishers Weekly Five of her books have been named among the year s top five romances by The Library Journal The Spiral Path and Stolen Magic were chosen as one of Top Ten romances of their years by Booklist, published by the American Library Association.A nine time finalist for the Romance Writers of America RITA, she has won RITAs for Dancing on the Wind and The Rake and the Reformer and is on the RWA Honor Roll for bestselling authors She has been awarded two Romantic Times Career Achievement Awards, four NJRW Golden Leaf awards, plus the NJRW career achievement award for historical romance Though most of her books have been historical, she has also published three contemporary romances The Marriage Spell will be out in June 2006 in hardcover, and Stolen Magic written as M J Putney will be released in July 2006 Ms Putney says that not least among the blessings of a full time writing career is that one almost never has to wear pantyhose.


  • This is an excellent book. For those of us who love exotic settings check this one out. It takes place in India in 1841. The hero has lost an eye and spends part of the book impotent. It's so cool to have a hero who is far from perfect but just scrumptious. I really loved Ian and I think I might be adding him to my list of scarred/imperfect hero favorites. The heroine is also admirable. She's of Russian birth but raised as an Englishwoman and has issues with passion because of her wild and crazy [...]

  • This book annoyed the heck out of me. I can't say I hated Laura, but she was a self-pitying, overdramatic idiot. The entire story got bogged down by her drama queen acts and wah wah poor me declarations. The plot itself was rather ridiculous, though admittedly unique and entertaining. However, I really wished Ian could have done better than Laura. She was just so pathetic. What really bugged me was how Ian had been trapped in a hole underground for two years with no sunlight and very little food [...]

  • Transcurre en la India, en un interesante momento historico, con una protagonista fuerte y determinada y un protagonista masculino diferente, con un problema fisico poco habitual en estas novelas.

  • I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I have quite enjoyed Ms. Putney's books because for the most part they deal with multiple cultures and quite a bit with the eastern middle east such as Afghanistan and Pakistan. This one is centered more in India, but ties into several of her other books involving Afghanistan.Our story starts out with Ian Cameron returning to his post in India after spending nearly two years as a prisoner of some not so nice dude. I can't remember where, but the adventu [...]

  • I was very excited when I found out this is a book with impotent Hero. I love smut as much as the next gal, but after reading couple of pnr romances, I couldn't be bothered with too much sexy time. The beginning was very promising. I even began thinking "wow, this might be a keeper". Sadly, as I read on, my appreciation degraded. I had problem with Putney's writing as I felt it was very over the top with Tremendous, Breathtaking, Inexhaustible Adjectives. Seriously, she couldn't write one adject [...]

  • I really am not sure why I didn't like this book as well as the other books in the Silk trilogy. I think that I didn't engage with it - or maybe I just had a bad day! It certainly wasn't awful- it had plenty of MJP's typical adventure led plots with lively leads. There were tigers and fevers and balls and Rajput princes, mysticism, cave-ins etc. It never felt like the leads were really in danger though and I wasn't on the edge of my seat as I was in the previous silk book.As for the basics- the [...]

  • Último libro de esta trilogía de Mary Jo Putney leído y terminado. La verdad es que da gusto cuando una no tiene mucho más que decir que recomendar la novela para que todo el que pueda la lea porque es una historia bonita, con personajes con los que no es difícil establecer un nexo.Lo mejor de esta autora para mi son los diálogos entre los protagonistas y que va tejiendo la trama de manera lenta, no precipita las acciones sino que las desarrolla en el momento justo. Sobre esta historia en [...]

  • I loved Laura and Ian together. Both of them had some serious issues to work through in order to be together, but through it all they were also a very loving couple.This book is set in India for those who like historicals set elesewhere. I always end up looking things up in a Mary Jo Putney book, which is a good thing.This book can be read as a stand alone, but it takes place directly after Silk and Secrets, which was another amazing story.

  • Din colecția cățtilor de dragoste de la Libertatea. Pe lângă povestea clasică de dragoste, o descriere a Indiei și Afganistanului dinainte de independența Indiei.

  • There is no possible way for a book in this genre not to be predictable so the quality of the book depends on how interesting the conflict isis book had nearly none.Putney does flip an old cliche in this one but in it she lost everything that made it interesting.

  • Too much dialogue and I got bored and started skimming and almost didn't finish it. I didn't connect with the characters at all.

  • I've enjoyed most of Putney's books, and the Silk trilogy is no exception. Having lived in that part of the world as a child, I am always partial to books set in the Indian Subcontinent, so this already had some points racked up before the story began. Characters who actually knew the region and spoke the languages added quite a few more points. Laura's initial attitude towards physical intimacy had me gnashing my teeth a bit, and this made her seem annoyingly immature, but she did have a number [...]

  • Paradossalmente, in questo romanzo ho apprezzato molto di più la ricostruzione storica e ambientale della parte romance. Se, da un lato, infatti, l’attenzione e la cura dell’autrice per la resa dell’ambiente indiano coloniale della prima metà dell’ ‘800 è evidente e palpabile, dall’altro la caratterizzazione dei protagonisti e la storia d’amore sembrano fare acqua da tutte le parti. Sorvoliamo sulla “temporanea impotenza” di lui (che poi, trattandosi di un romance, nessuno p [...]

  • It was good, but first two in the series were betterI liked it, just felt that our poor hero, Ian, needed a break after the previous book. Poor guy has been through enough, having survived two years of torture, but Ms. Putney had to send him on one last adventure. I was exhausted for him. Laura, heroine, is independent but was super confused about relationships, in general. Didn't really buy the confusion though, because the heroine was smart and close to her father figure. That kinda thing usua [...]

  • The last of the Silk Trilogy, I read the first 2 when I was a teenager and now finally I have read the last installment of this series. I loved the first two books, especially Mikhail and Sara's story (the first one). Ross and Juliet's story was a little more difficult to swallow but I was still fascinated by their journey to redemption. This book, unfortunately, pales in comparison to its 2 predecessors.What I love about Mary Jo Putney is still all there. I love that she has her characters enga [...]

  • Ian was imprisoned in a lightless pit for two years—when he wasn't being tortured. He's escaped, but he's not all better. He's blind in one eye, and can't sleep because of the horrible nightmares, can't bring himself to eat much. And worse than all that, he's pretty sure the torture left him less than a man. At first, he thinks if he can just get back to his beautiful fiance, everything will be fine. But after he vanished and was declared dead by a government that couldn't be bothered to write [...]

  • SuperbI must read more of Mary Jo Putney's books! There are so many plots, twists & turns you are constantly entertained. The most beautiful part is each plot is thoroughly evolved and completely tied off! There is no uneasy feeling of story left undone.

  • Victorian Romance set in India!Now we are off to India! The story begins in 1841 as Ian Cameron, the Scottish soldier rescued from the pit of hell in book 2, but left with only one eye, thinks only of returning to his regiment in India and seeing again his fiancé, Georgina. Alas, thinking him dead, she is no longer his.Discouraged, Ian decides to resign his commission. When he learns he has inherited the title of Lord of Kilkirk, he plans to return to Scotland. But first he must carry out the r [...]

  • I was very excited to read this because of the great reviews, but almost instantly I started highlighting sections as being extremely tell-don't-show, totally illogical, just not-good. (Example: heroine, who is an unmarried woman living in India with her civil-service stepfather, who knows she has no income apart from him and no plan for her future, but definitely does not wish to marry and has one of those Historical Romance Heroine "Independent Lady" personalities, is startled to realize that [...]

  • A legkevésbé sikerült rész a trilógiából, de azért nagyon szerethető. Vannak részek, amelyeket kifejezetten kedvelek, Ian például nagyon emberi, de a bűntudatát, amiért ember – gyarló ember – módjára viselkedett, kicsit túlzónak érzem. A lány házasélettől való idegenkedésének okát pedig kifejezetten erőltetettnek. De mivel oly kevéssé ismerem az életet, biztos van ilyen is. :) Nagyon jók a mellékszereplők, Ian öccse azonnal belopja magát az ember szívé [...]

  • Dupa parerea mea ,acaeasta carte este cea mai reusita din sreia Matase. Toate cartile lui Mary Jo Putney sunt scrise intr-o maniera cat mai realista , cu personaje uimitoare,dialogurile si situatiile create de scriitoare sunt amuzante ,dar si tragice uneori. Poveste de dragoste dintre Ian Comeron si Laura Stephenson este una furtunoasa cu multe obstacole inca din primele capitole ale cartii. Pe parcursul lecturii suntem reintrodusi in minunata Indie(actiunea se pertece pe continentul asiatic)und [...]

  • This was the first book that I read of Mary Jo Putney. I have always loved marriage of convenience plots. Ian is a soldier who returns to India after years of imprisonment in a dungeon. His cell mate, a Russian charges him with the task of giving his journal to his niece. Ian meets Laura and escorts her back home in India. He finds that his own fiancee had moved on and had got married to somebody else.Beaten, broken and disappointed, Ian proposes an unconventional marriage to Laura for companion [...]

  • This is a wholesome winner from Mary Jo Putney. There was a good amount of historical and cultural observations that intertwined with the story. Again, there's a spirituality to this book, as in her other books.Ian reminds me very much of Ashburton from One Perfect Rose-- one of my all time favorites. If Ashburton had been an officer instead of a Duke, I think he would have been Ian. Maybe he's a reincarnation?Really enjoyed the mature and adult conversations between the two. There were some han [...]

  • Veils of Silk (Silk Trilogy #3) by Mary Jo Putney After years of captivity in western Asia, a courageous army major finds hope for the future in a bold woman who dares to accept his marriage proposal, shed her Victorian propriety-and unleash a sensual nature that will set him on fire.My Review: Veils of Silk was a sort of opposite side of the track kind of story with that culture induced interference running between our h/h, she's the sweet and innocent and he's everything that's flawed and brok [...]

  • "Come fai a leggere così bene nella mia mente, Lariska? E' un talento russo - rispose lei con aria altera. - Fatto appostas per mettere il terrore nel cuore di creature più razionali."L'ambientazione russa non è frequente nei romance (a parte la saga di Rosemary Rogers a me non vengono in mente molti altri esempi) e quindi ho apprezzato l'aria esotica che spira tra le pagine di questo romanzo, mi hanno convinto invece meno i due protagonisti o meglio lei non mi sembra così "freddina" come vi [...]

  • A unique, epic historical romance!If you want a historical romance with some angst and psychological depth, get this one! You also get the cool added bonus of it being set entirely in India, complete with actual historical events. The author did a lot of historical and cultural research, and it really shows. The details of both the lush countryside and the social unrest were amazing. Fans of Courtney Milan will love this classic epic romance. I think that this book is perfect. It has complicated [...]

  • I thought that this book nicely ended the trilogy. After seeing Ian's rescue in the preceding book, I definitely wanted to read his story. I liked seeing him heal, both physically and emotionally, and also enjoyed how his relationship with Laura progressed. I'm very fond of romance books where the couple gets married at the beginning and then has to work through things to really make their marriage wonderful. Both the heroine and hero had lots of issues to work through, which made things particu [...]

  • I loved this book. The Author's note at the beginning was so interesting it felt like I was starting to read the novel. But no - that pleasure was still to come. And what a pleasure it was. Right until the end when I wanted to go back and start the series all over again.Out of the 3 books I can't honestly say which one I liked the best. Or even which couple I liked best.However I was able to most closely identify with Ian and his traumas and state of mind. But not really with Laura.
