Here's my choice for this week!

Only A Promise

Trade Paperback, 400 pages
Platkus Books
June 2, 2015
Historical Fiction, Romance

The new Survivors' Club novel from the New York Times bestselling author.

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. Racked with guilt over their deaths, Ralph must move on...and find a wife so as to secure an heir to his family’s title and fortune.

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.

Why I'm waiting on this one!!

Mary Balogh is my all-time FAVORITE
historical romance author, so
I'm jumping up and down for joy that
this latest installment of this
great series is being released VERY soon!!
Back in August of 2013, I reviewed
The Arrangement, which is Book 2 of 
this beautiful series.
You can access my review HERE
So, I'm really excited about this one!!!
I need to go back and catch up
with the other volumes.....
The edition shown above is the UK one.
This cover is SO much more beautiful than 
the US cover for the mass market
paperback edition, which you 
can see below.
So I have to own the UK edition!!!
