Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERA mesmerizing story of passionate awakening and redemption, Mary Balogh&;s new novel unites a war hero consigned to darkness with a remarkable woman who finds her own salvation by showing him the light of love.   Desperate to escape his mother&;s matchmaking, Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, flees to a remote country village. But even there, another marital trap is sprung. So when Miss Sophia Fry&;s intervention on his behalf finds her unceremoniously booted from her guardian&;s home, Vincent is compelled to act. He may have been blinded in battle, but he can see a solution to both their problems: marriage.   At first, quiet, unassuming Sophia rejects Vincent&;s proposal. But when such a gloriously handsome man persuades her that he needs a wife of his own choosing as much as she needs protection from destitution, she agrees. Her alternative is too dreadful to contemplate. But how can an all-consuming fire burn from such a cold arrangement? As friendship and camaraderie lead to sweet seduction and sensual pleasure, dare they believe a bargain born of desperation might lead them both to a love destined to be?Praise for The Arrangement   &;Balogh understands not only the era, with all its nuances, but [also] knows her characters so thoroughly that readers are swept into her stories. There&;s a natural reserve&;a calmness and quiet in her prose&;that allows the tenderness of the romance to tug at the reader&;s heart. This is a beautifully rendered marriage-of-convenience love story that will win a place on keeper shelves.&;&;RT Book Reviews (4-1/2 stars)   &;This sexy, touching book revisits the marriage-of-convenience plot, joining two heroic, conflicted characters who are navigating their own versions of darkness and delivering them to the redemptive power of love. Regency best-seller Balogh once again takes a standard romance trope and imbues it with heart, emotional intelligence and flawless authenticity.&;&;Kirkus Reviews (starred review)   &;This touching, totally enthralling story overflows with subtle humor, brilliant dialog, breathtaking sensuality, and supporting characters you want to know better.&;&;Library Journal (starred review)   &;Balogh can always be depended on to deliver a beautifully written Regency romance with appealing, unusual characters, and the second in her new Survivors&; Club series (after The Proposal) is no exception. . . . Future series installments promise more compellingly tormented heroes.&;&;Publishers Weekly   &;[A] poignant and thoughtful romance.&;&;Booklist   &;A compassionate love story with a unique hero and heroine . . . The dialogue is snappy, and the climax . . . is exciting and helps bring about the blissful ending. . . . The Arrangement [is] a must read.&;&;Fresh Fiction
