Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Balogh crafts a beautiful, touching romance. This marriage-of-convenience love story has all the right touches, and the maturity of the characters is woven perfectly into the plotline.” RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars)
“No one does a marriage of convenience like Balogh, and this series entry will leave the reader longing for the next book.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Rosalyn Landor’s deftly paced dialogue and talent for characterization enhance this romance between a guilt-ridden veteran of the Napoleonic Wars and an innocent victim of scandal. Having married for purely pragmatic reasons, Ralph and Chloe gradually learn to trust and depend on each other while mildly resisting the budding emotional relationship both had sworn to avoid. Landor’s pleasantly deep voice provides convincing portrayals of Ralph and the other male characters, while also conveying Chloe’s sweetness and firmness…a pleasure to hear.” AudioFile
“An elegant, romantic exploration of the trauma of war and the healing power of love.” Kirkus Reviews
