The Survivors' Club: Six men and one woman, all wounded in the Napoleonic Wars, their friendship forged during their recovery at Penderris Hall in Cornwall. Now, for one of them, striking a most unusual bargain will change his life forever.. Ralph Stockwood prides himself on being a leader, but when he convinced his friends to fight in the Napoleonic Wars, he never envisioned being the sole survivor.

Since her Seasons in London ended in disaster, Chloe Muirhead is resigned to spinsterhood. Driven by the need to escape her family, she takes refuge at the home of her mother's godmother, where she meets Ralph. He needs a wife. She wants a husband. So Chloe makes an outrageous suggestion: Strike a bargain and get married. One condition: Ralph has to promise that he will never take her back to London. But circumstances change. And to Ralph, it was only a promise. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”


  • “An elegant, romantic exploration of the trauma of war and the healing power of love.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A 2015 Amazon Best Books of the Year Selection for Romance
