REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
I’ve been a fan of Mary Balogh’s historical romances forever – and was excited to see this new title as part of the Survivor’s Club series. Balogh lived up to my expectations. A non-traditional hero, Sir Benedict Harper, barely survives the Napoleonic Wars and is still trying to come to peace with his new life. He meets widow Samantha McKay, who is trying to escape her controlling in-laws. I loved the pace of their relationship – emotionally and physically. Even more I loved the depth of the story – I continued to read and unpeel layers of the plot until the last moment.
