    1. When Sir Nathaniel Gascoigne comes to London to help find suitable marriages for his sister and cousin, he’s surprised to meet with a colleague and fellow solider widowed wife and old friend Sophie Armitage. Sophie has became somewhat of a celebrity because of her husband’s act of heroism. But Sophie’s life is anything but pleasant as she deals with many hardships after his husband’s death. Meeting with Nathaniel again, brings feelings Sophie had kept hidden long ago to resurface, and wh [...]

    2. I'm a Mary Balogh fangirl, so am gradually working my way through her backlist. This one is from 1998, and it bears all of the Balogh signature features: a dauntless heroine (who's terribly insecure underneath), a swoonworthy hero, and LOTS of secondary characters. So many secondary characters that I couldn't keep them straight, but that didn't matter.The romance between two old friends was sweet, especially because neither of them ever expected it. The widowed heroine had not had an especially [...]

    3. I read this book years ago, but for some reason never connected it to the two other books in the series. I took it out on loan from the library with the intention of finishing the series. As I started to read it, I realized that I had read it before. A tear jerker for sure, and (IMHO) one of MB's better stories.

    4. I have a new favorite historical romance. Holy Moses! I didn't want this book to end. Each page closer to finishing hurt my heart just a little more. Basic plot - widow Sophie runs into four old friends. She has a crush on one - Nathaniel. Sophie has some other life issues, and Nathaniel is adorably obtuse. Let the relationship hijinks commence. I very quickly fell a little in love with Sophie. MB is known for her imperfect characters. Never has a historical romance heroine felt so near and dear [...]

    5. I liked the way Balogh, who is one of my favorite Regency romance authors, twists the lives of the characters in this book. Nathaniel is perfect as the "hero," and Sophia is so kind one cannot help but feel sympathy for her. In this one, the reader cheers for the couple to finally get together and stay together. I also wanted to cheer when Nathaniel, Kenneth, Rex, and Eden showed at Pinter's apartment. I wanted someone to beat the "crap" out of the man, and Nathaniel was the perfect person to do [...]

    6. Saved the best for last. The first two in this series were a little too angsty and dramatic for me. This book struck a good balance between emotional turmoil and real life drama. Sophie is living under years of caked-on insecurities (not to mention blackmail) and has a lot to overcome. She's a strong character. Nat is nice, and observant, but kinda flat. He's a bit of an ass to his cousin (one of the better characters), but overall there's not a lot of room for character development. It's strang [...]

    7. I don't remember Mary Balogh's books being offensive before, merely easy reads. Sophie was just ridiculous. It's split between whether I'm more annoyed at her martyr complex, her incredible rudeness to her friends, or her senselessness. On another note, the writing was a lot more choppy than I remember. (view spoiler)[Also not sure what to think about the portrayal homosexuality here as Sophie's dead husband was gay. And so is the villain, who also has "evil" violent sexual tendencies. And we h [...]

    8. When you love an author and her books it is soooo hard not to just tell you the whole story. I will try not to 'Spoil' anything for you. Irresistible is a story about friendship, loyalty, greed, secrets and of course love. Irresistible is basically about the third horseman Nathaniel Gascoigne (with his irresistible smile and bedroom eyes) and Sophie Armitage. Mary Balogh has included Eden Wendell, Baron Pelham the fourth horseman's love story in this book as well.Nathaniel had been living in the [...]

    9. Sophie Armitage was married to an officer who died a heroic death in the Napoleonic War. His heroism got her a modest government pension and feted by the ton, but she is secretly lonely. Then his old cavalry buddies, the so-called Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, return to London. Sophie and Nathaniel rekindle their old friendship, and quickly fall into bed together. But Sophie is being blackmailed (view spoiler)[with her husband's old love letters to a fellow officer, which would ruin his posth [...]

    10. Nathaniel may be among one of my top 5 heroes in HR. When Sophia told him and his friends to back off of her personal life, he listened. He didn't argue nor tell her that he knows what's best for her. He understood that she was an independent woman. However, I was irritated with Sophia's stubbornness/pride. Obviously, she needed help paying her blackmailer to back off, but she was too proud, too independent, to ask her friends for help. I remember thinking that the scene where Nathaniel and Soph [...]

    11. Un romance irresistible es una novela que no ha conseguido llegarme del todo. Me gusta la forma de escribir de Mary Balogh y la pareja secundaria me encandiló desde el principio, pero eché en falta un poco más de picardía y humor en la pareja principal. Aunque, eso sí, los capítulos finales me enamoraron por completovidasecretadeloslibross

    12. Definitely a good story - but I didn't realize it was the third in a series! So I kept wondering, who are all these people? This wasn't my favorite Balogh, but still enjoyable. I would actually really like to read the first book in the series now.

    13. I thought this one one of the survivors club stories because it involves friends who were soldiers. But these men called the 4 Horseman of Apocalypse are not injured. This story stand alone as a novel and until the end I didn't realize it was part of a series. Darn I hate reading books out of order. I just grabbed it off the shelf. Ohh well.So Irrrestible refers to the eyes( and other body parts) of Nathaniel who has come to London to reconnect with his 3 friends while he tries to get his sister [...]

    14. FINAL DECISION:  This book was just okay. I enjoyed most of the relationship and story but I couldn't relate how Sophie reacted to being blackmailed.  Her irrational behavior just bothered me throughoutE STORY:  Mrs. Sophia Armitage, as the wife of an officer, followed the drum during the war became the friend of the Four Horsemen. Now a widow, Sophie resides in London and for the first time in three years, meets up with Nathaniel Gascoigne -- a man that even a respectable wife could admire. [...]

    15. Book 3 in the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse trilogy by Mary Balogh. All I can say is WOW! I loved it. It can be read as a stand-alone book. I don't think I've ever read a Balogh book I didn't like and this is certainly no exception to that. ***** Also -- this is a re-release of a book from about 1996, so check -- you might have already read it.There are characters all over the place in this book and more HEA's than you know what to do with, but the main plot is around Sir Nathaniel Glascoigne [...]

    16. Truly, madly, deeply romanticIt's not often that I find a well written, truly believable, romantic love story but happily, 'Irresistible' is just that. The main characters, Nathaniel and Sophie are beautifully written and act in ways that are true to the period. Nathanial exhibits all of the culturally ingrained, sexist characteristics of men of that period but is also capable of intelligent, thoughtful growth when it comes to the women of his family and friendships. Sophie might be written just [...]

    17. Los dos libros anteriores me gustaron, si bien no tienen el alto nivel que Balogh nos muestra en otras de sus novelas, no obstante esta tercera y última entrega me ha gustado mucho, la he disfrutado por completo. La historia en sí mantiene la esencia de la escritora, manteniéndonos con una ligera intriga que nos hará querer saber más. Los personajes principales son muy buenos, Sophia no es la típica protagonista, ha tenido una vida de guerras, ha perdido a su marido en ellas y se ha hecho [...]

    18. In assoluto, il più bello della trilogia, anche perché racchiude in sé le capitolazioni per amore di ben due dei mitici Cavalieri. Qui ho trovato magnifica la figura di Sophia, una donna capace di un’apertura mentale di una sensibilità rara per l’epoca, e al contempo non vergognosa di rivelare i propri appetiti sessuali e di darsi una seconda possibilità dopo la vedovanza. Le scene in cui convince (travia?) Nat sono secche ma ricche di parole non dette. Grande Balogh!E la coppia Eden/La [...]

    19. Irrestistible is probably my second favourite book of Mary Balogh's. I just adored the story of Sophie and Nathaniel. It just makes me feel warm all over revisiting these two. I'm not normally in love with a widow storyline, but this talented writer can probably make me love anything as long as she's written it. This book is part of three books, and four heros. This, in my opinion, is the best of the lot or maybe I just loved the story so much the others just couldn't compare. Sohpie is a lovel [...]

    20. Wonderful story of a woman who was in a very damaging marriage to a decent man and is trying to establish an independent life now that her husband has died a war hero at the battle of Waterloo.Relationships from the years she was "following the drum" are reestablishing themselves in her life as one of the men her husband served with is trying to blackmail her and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse renew their friendship with her.This appears to be the last book in a series, so now I will have t [...]

    21. Actual rating 3.5 stars.I am indefinitely sorry to say that the very book that made me want to read this series (THIS review is to be blamed), is the weakest of the lot in my eyes. I still enjoyed it immensely but I honestly would have preferred if Balogh had given more attention to Eden and Lavinia whose banter I found simply hilarious compared to Nathaniel and Sophia's simple story. My thoughts on this book continue HERE.

    22. What can I say, but I love almost all of Balogh's books. Unfortunately, my library didn't have the first 2 in this series so I am forever doomed to read books out of sequence. This book is about 4 men who fought together during the war. Two are still bachelors. One of the unwed men is trying to marry off a sister and cousin and because of this all four men decide to meet in London for the season. They run into the widow of one of their former war colleagues whom all four were fond of.Of course w [...]

    23. Another of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse books, at least Ms. Balogh manages to make them all quite different. Indiscreet is by far my favorite of the three, but this one has many good points as well. I particularly liked Sophie's not being of the nobility yet she is feisty and capable as well as kind. I was a little less happy with Nat Gascoigne and so many courtships amongst the other characters that it was easy to lose track of them all.

    24. Absolutely loved this book:) Ms. Balogh is at her finest when the characters are less-than-perfect, when love comes alongside them, steady and faithful and yes---happily ever after. I loved Sophie, the heroine and the way she stood strong instead of taking an easy way out. Those types of characters are my favorites among all the amazing people she's created.

    25. 3.5 stars Good, but not one of my favorite Mary Balogh novels, of which there are many. I found the heroine a bit tedious at times I guess. I often wonder why I usually favor the hero in the stories I readoh well, no matter what I really needed a relaxing Mary Balogh novel to read during the stress of the holidays and this did the trick.

    26. This is an excellent book full of wonderful characters and lots of emotion.There are many good reviews here on , so I'll just add that I love the quality of the writing and the care Balogh has taken to make her characters believable, and to make the characters' actions and reaction feel so realistic.

    27. A lovely final book to this series. Sophie is a wonderful heroine who is strong and independent, but also vulnerable. The strength of the friendship between the Four Horsemen is vibrant and heartwarming, and their collective caring for Sophie is wonderful. This isn't just a romance, but a celebration of friendship.

    28. Quite possibly one of the best "friends to lovers" stories I've ever read. I was moved to tears, which is not easy to do for me. All of the characters were colorful, especially Lavinia and Ede, but Nathanial really stole the show for me. A wonderful read.5 stars / A++

    29. *3.5 stars*Great friends! If the heroine wouldn't have been such a martyr, the book would have been great. Review to come

    30. Wow, this is one uneven trilogy. The first one, "Indiscreet," and this one are so much better than the second one, "Unforgiven." (I think the first one is the best of the lot.)Sophie is a widow -- her dead husband, Walter, fought in the Napoleonic wars; she had followed him and his camp, and in that way got to know the Four Horsemen (Rex, Kenneth, Nat and Eden). In fact, it was Walter who gave the four other officers that nickname.But now Walter is dead -- he died heroically saving another soldi [...]
