Publisher's Summary

After surviving the Napoleonic Wars, Sir Benedict Harper is struggling to move on, his body and spirit in need of a healing touch. Never does Ben imagine that hope will come in the form of a beautiful woman who has seen her own share of suffering. After the lingering death of her husband, Samantha McKay is at the mercy of her oppressive in-laws - until she plots an escape to distant Wales to claim a house she has inherited. Being a gentleman, Ben insists that he escort her on the fateful journey. Ben wants Samantha as much as she wants him, but he is cautious. What can a wounded soul offer any woman? Samantha is ready to go where fate takes her, to leave behind polite society and even propriety in her desire for this handsome, honorable soldier. But dare she offer her bruised heart as well as her body? The answers to both their questions may be found in an unlikely place: in each other’s arms.

    Story
    "A lovely escape"

    Setting: England
    Genre: Regency romance

    Rosalyn Landor provides her usual wonderful performance. I truly enjoy her work.

    This is the third in The Survivor's Club series. The male protagonist was introduced in the first book of the series, The Proposal, and mentioned in passing in The Arrangement, the second book.

    The protagonists, Mrs. Samantha McKay and Sir Benedict Harper, are well rounded. They both have their individual challenges: hers is dealing with the overbearing, puritanical family of her late husband, and his is coming to terms with his disability. The plot is engaging. There aren't any huge conflicts, but there are a couple of minor ones. Hmm. I would say this is almost two stories with a road trip in between. The first part focuses on Samantha's situation and Ben's restlessness. The hero and heroine start out disliking one another, though Ben feels a grudging responsibility for Samantha. The road trip shows the gradual change in the relationship to liking and respect. The second part focuses on the relationship between Samantha and Ben, as well as Samantha's adjustment to life in Wales. It is a nice progression.

    The novel is followed by an amusing novela, The Suitor, which is set immediately prior to The Arrangement, though the hero is introduced in The Proposal. I'd tell you more about it, but that might spoil it for you.

    I highly recommend this audio production. It is worth the time and credit.

    "If its by Mary Balogh, it must be good"

    And as usual, it was another very good Mary Balogh story. This was a great fairy tale but I couldn't put it down, so to speak. I loved it. Also enjoyed Roslyn Landor's performance. Great combination of author and narrator equals a great review.
