    4.5 stars, rounded up.All the books in Mary Balogh s Survivor s Club series take as their central protagonist a character who has been seriously injured by war Sometimes these are physical injuries, as with Sir Benedict Harper of The Escape who lost the use of his legs, and sometimes they are mental, as with Flavian Ponsonby hero of the previous book and my favourite of the series so far Only Enchanting In each case, the author has approached her characters injuries and disabilities 4.5 stars, rounded up.All the books in Mary Balogh s Survivor s Cl...

    I find I don t have a lot to say about this Mary Balogh writes well, but this is a fairly formulaic marriage of convenience tale with an emotionally damaged hero and a heroine who s had a few hard knocks in her own life It s an interesting and worthy idea, writing a series of romances about a group of men and a woman who have been deeply damaged by the Napoleonic Wars in Regency England times I read The Arrangement a couple of years ago, about Vincent, the one who was blinded in the war also I find I don t have a lot to say about this Mary Balogh writes well, ...

    I really loved Only a Promise It was sweet and poignant and brilliantly written The angst was handled very well it was justified and kept to a reasonable limit, unlike, say, The Secret Passion of Simon Blackwell by Samantha James The love scenes were very lukewarm, though, but that didn t really bother me sinc...

    My least favorite of the series so far Ralph has been something of an enigma through the other books Indeed, I always struggle to remember that he s one of the Survivors The trouble is that he s a brooder and kind of egotistical about it.Chloe is fine, I guess She has had wretched luck and is kind of licking her wounds when she runs across Ralph She overhears his frustration with the standard ing nues and ...
