More About the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has five times had books listed among the Library Journal's top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she'll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She's delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thunder and Roses 31 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Here again we join the Fallen Angels, this time following the journey of Nicholas the Gypsy Earl.
Nicholas returns to his estate in Wales after a few years absence, disullusioned and prepared to sell. However, Claire, a school teacher has something to say about this. Snd so starts the book that follows the game played out by these central characters, with Nicholas agreeing to stay if Claire lives with him, at the cost of her reputation, allowing him one kiss a day.
What follows is an intriging plot, with the typical seduction you would expect from a Fallen Angel. Mary JO Putney briefly mentions the other angels, and uncovers some of Micheals anger towards one of his former best friend. In the end, the girl is not a typical lady of the day, stands up to her man and ultimately wins his heart and trust.
Well worth reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Putney's best!! 7 Jan 2003
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read many of Putney's books over the last decade, but this is always the one that lives in memory. It was the first Putney I read, and frankly, I still think it her best. A funny tale, I was running a bookstore just after this came out, and 75% of the sales was in romance so I had to stay on top. We had male readers (shocker, but true!) and this was demonstrated one day. A man came in and wandered around and into, romance, I commented he was now in romance and he shrugged and went on wandering. Then I was recommending this to one lady and how I loved it. He turned around and said, yes, Putney is really the best.
This book is just so full of heart, of the valiant heroine who puts the welfare of her village before herself, of a contained person that is so darn by the dark hero who is tormented because she has one foot in the world of the Lord of the Manor, but his other with his Gypsy mother. He is cold, demanded and haughty, the Gypsy Lord (the first of the Fallen Angel series for Putney). Nicholas has been away, unable to feel at home in either of his worlds, determined to sell the Manor for it hold harsh memories. However, Claire the local teacher takes it upon herself to beard the lion and demand changes be made to make the people suffer less, especially in the mines. Nicholas strikes a bargain with her - she stays and pretends to be his mistress and he will stay and make improvements. In his own way, he knows her living under his roof marks her, and her reputation would suffer the same as if she was in his bed, so he is making her a loner whether he understands it or not - more like himself.
Only Claire is no one to push around. She agrees to the pose, but refuses to be pushed into being his mistress, and has demanded of her own.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite that I re-read and re-read 27 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this romance novel. It's right up there with my top 10 of romance novels that I re-read over the years. I've loved this book so much that I have it in several versions. I originally bought it in another language (where I was currently living) in my twenties, then in English paperback and now in Kindle format so I can re-live this romance wherever I am.
The heroine is so genuine, innocent and intelligent, her story around spirituality is beautiful (and I'm NOT into novels that touch on religion), the hero is tormented and the back story to that is believable. The best part is when they meet and the teasing, humour and escapades that go with it are great fun and make a brilliant read. MJP generally writes well, good plots, well researched history and interesting anecdotes but can err on the serious side. This was still serious, but with lots of humour and some sensual steamy scenes. It touches on being different, acceptance whether it's a different race or a female and her sexuality but most importantly without being too judgemental. MJP has the talent of writing so you can make up your own mind about these issues. I've made mine. I'll be re-reading "Thunder and Roses" for years to come. Give it a go.
