Format: Kindle Edition
"Seduction is one-sided. It suggests a certain degree of coercion or at least of deception." Sir Benedict Harper

"There was something almost shameful about loneliness, as if one must be unlovable as well as unloved." Samantha McKay

Der 29-jährige Baron Sir Benedict Harper wurde im Krieg gegen Napoleons Truppen auf der Iberischen Halbinsel schwer verwundet. Besonders an den Beinen hat er bleibende Verletzungen davongetragen und war danach drei Jahre lang rekonvaleszent. Seither sind drei weitere Jahre vergangen, doch Benedict weiß noch immer nicht, was er mit seinem Leben anfangen soll.

Als Benedict bei einem Ausritt mit seinem Pferd über eine Hecke springt, kommt es beinahe zum Unfall mit Samantha McKay. Die 24-jährige ist die Witwe eines jungen Offiziers, der im selben Krieg wie Benedict gekämpft hat. In ihrer Ehe war sie nur kurze Zeit glücklich, und die vergangenen fünf Jahre hat sie damit zugebracht, ihren dahinsiechenden Mann zu pflegen.

Samantha fühlt sich einsam, steht ohne einen Freund im Leben da und ist ihren extrem konservativen angeheirateten Verwandten hilflos ausgesetzt, die ihr Leben kontrollieren. Diese Kontrolle geht soweit, dass ihr Schwiegervater und ihre Schwägerin darüber bestimmen, auf welche Art Samantha um ihren verstorbenen Mann zu trauern hat, wie sie sich zu kleiden hat und sogar darüber, wann und wo sie spazieren gehen darf.

Als Samantha gegen diese Behandlung aufbegehrt, droht neues Ungemach. Sie sieht keinen anderen Ausweg, als mit ihrem geliebten Hund Tramp die Flucht anzutreten, um nicht unter der Fuchtel ihres Schwiegervaters und dessen Tochter lebendig begraben zu werden.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Nach etlichen historischen u zeitgenössischen Liebesromanen, die ich (bildlich gesprochen) in die Ecke gepfeffert habe (tatsächlich habe ich sie nach wenigen Kapiteln vom Reader gelöscht), war ich dankbar wieder einen wirklich gut geschriebenen Roman von Mary Balogh lesen zu dürfen.

Wie bei Balogh (zumeist) gewohnt, wird die Liebesgeschichte langsam und glaubwürdig entwickelt. Natürlich gibt es eine erotische Anziehung, beide Akteure sind jedoch mit beträchtlichen und verständlichen Unsicherheiten behaftet und dazu kommen größere Hemmnisse durch die äußeren Umstände. Diese werden jedoch nicht im Hauruck-Verfahren niedergerissen, sondern langsam "abgetragen". Durch die gemeinsame Flucht, die eigentlich eine gentlemanlike Fürsorge auf Seiten von Ben ist, der Samantha auf ihrer Flucht begleitet, kommen sich die beiden näher. lernen sich kennen und immer mehr lieben.

Beide Protagonisten haben im Grunde das gleiche Problem "was fange ich Sinnvolles mit meinem Leben an?" - eine Frage, die beantwortet werden will, bevor sich das Paar ganz und gar aufeinander einlassen kann - auch dies wird durch die Autorin sehr schön entwickelt und gelöst.

Wer Romane liebt, bei der die Akteure unsäglich schön sind; Held und Heldin ständig vor erotischer Gier nach dem anderen sabbern, vielleicht unterbrochen von etwas "Action" dank eines Bösewichts, dem wird dieser Roman langweilig vorkommen.

Ich fand ihn dagegen sehr abwechslungsreich geschrieben, die Beschreibung der zunehmenden Liebe war sehr romantisch und genügend realistisch um Freude zu machen und die Entwicklung der Hauptpersonen war schön zu beobachten.

eigentlich nicht schlecht, aber es ist für mich einfach zu viel des guten, wenn jeder Gedanke zu Papier gebracht wird. und das gleich mehrmals. zwei mal aus ihrer Sicht, ein mal aus seiner, später das ganze noch einmal....das zieht sich unglaublich! und das bei relativ wenig Handlung.

Best of the Series So Far 3. Juli 2014
Von arc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book is much better than the preceding two and is the kind of Mary Balogh writing I love. These are GROWN-UPS! Neither Benedict nor Samantha are hysterical, whiney, self pitying, or dumb. They don't make assumptions about each other without asking questions to test the accuracy of their assumptions (those erroneous assumptions are at the heart of too many hysteria driven romance novels which would have no plot at all if the people involved actually talked to each other.) They both face challenges and they recognize what they must do to overcome them. Balogh's best couples do talk to each other, a lot. They converse, argue, tease, laugh, disagree, get angry and make up - in short they actually get to know each other before they make life long commitments. They approach attraction and sex like the normal human activities they are, expressive of desire, tenderness, affection and mutual pleasure. Its not cosmic. They don't pretend they can't live without each other. They in fact know they can (because real people do) and that they will even recover from the heart break if necessary but fortunately don't have to. No one is trying to kill or kidnap anyone else. Samantha's background is a bit mysterious to her but when she fills in the details it is nothing horrible. My only complaint is that the author seems to need to tie up all the loose ends. John and Matilda were not nice characters and Balogh did not have to redeem them in any way to end the story. That felt rather inauthentic. They disappeared from relevance much earlier in the story and should have stayed there.

"The world had stopped and they had stepped off" 4. Juli 2014
Von lark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a story of sublime beauty. For the past six years Ben and Samantha suffered the ravages of the Peninsular War. Ben, whose legs had been smashed, had spent that painful time in grim determination to walk again. Samantha, now widowed, had devoted those years to nursing her wounded husband.

Having lost his military career, Ben was searching for a purpose in life. Visiting his sister on a neighboring estate before beginning some aimless travels, Ben and Samantha meet. While there is an attraction between them, their relationship is amicable but distant. Until, that is, Samantha learns she is to be immediately forced to again live with her tyrannical and oppressive in-laws. Desperately seeking the comfort of her friend, Ben's sister, she finds Ben instead.

While agonizing over her prospects, Samantha remembers her mother having briefly mentioned a cottage in western Wales that had been willed to her, whereupon Samantha decides she must immediately set forth toward that cottage, her only sanctuary. Ben is horrified by the prospect of her traveling alone and unprotected, and insists that he accompany her. Thus begins the escape.

The journey had an almost dreamlike quality to it. It was during this journey that time briefly stood still..."The world had stopped and they had stepped off."

What followed was a beautiful development of deepening friendship. They had fun; they enjoyed each other. Samantha was sunny, kind, intuitive, and innocently pragmatic. Ben was thoughtful, protective, kind, and with a sly sense of humor. Their friendship then gently unfolded into a profound love.

Exquisite writing! Exquisite story! Such a joy to read! Every word was a pleasure.

Sloooower Than Molasses 11. Juli 2014
Von Judge Tabor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The characters in this book were very well drawn - problem is, they were too drawn out. Thirty percent of the way into the book, we are still hearing the thoughts over and over in Samantha's head about the 5 years she spent taking care of her husband supposedly without even one hour of freedom? Oh, did I mention she spent five long years taking care of her husband without any. type. of. a break. If not, let me say it one more time just so you won't forget this fact - indeed, five. long. years. of nursing her husband. By the way, he was a total jerk and when he passed, his even jerkier sister came to boss Samantha around - insisting that she wear horrible mourning clothes that did not fit, no drapes open in the house, heavy veil, no social life at all except to church once each week and Samantha allowed this for far too long. Finally... Samantha begins to stand up for herself. Plus, we have Benedict mulling over and over in his mind about what he can do to have an interesting life - he has basically allowed his younger brother and his family to take over his property and doesn't feel comfortable asserting his rights to oversee it. Man up and go get your property back if you think that will help - we're tired of reading about it.

I thought the romance part of the story would never get going and finally, about 40% of the way into the book, when Benedict and Samantha actually got going somewhere - thankfully - even if it was to Wales, then I thought okay, now, perhaps some real action. No, nada, nil, unless you count the fact they took a few walks, a teeny bit of action one night in an inn but days passed by and not much going on - even with those long hours in the carriage without a companion or chaperone - nada, nil - barely even any information given to us, except - wait a minute they did take another walk or two - yes, Samantha had to take her dog for his potty breaks.

Finally... they arrive in Wales and then you think, okay maybe at last, some romance will ensue - wait a minute, it is a romance novel, right? Maybe I was mistaken about that. Well, finally it did sort of get going and I'm not one who cares for a lot of sexual detail and we didn't actually get much, but again, get the romance moving, if you please! There was all that fabulous swimming and the beach and I don't recall even a kiss? I could be wrong about that - if there was one, it wasn't very memorable. It's going to be 1:00 am soon and I am ever so slightly bored.

Such potential in this storyline - a fine handsome man who just happens to not have the full use of his legs, but is not going to allow this fact to keep him from having a full life. A beautiful woman - 1/4 gypsy, 1/4 Welsh and 1/2 English. Now there's a mix that is sure to stir up some interest. But, overall - way, way, way too slow. The grandfather - Bevan - wound up being the most interesting person in the book and we didn't get to meet him until about 70% into it. Write me some romance about Bevan - he was all that he should be and then some, even if he was in his mid 60's.

Not exactly sure about how this review will be received - it is 2:00 am and I have just been bored out of my everlovin' mind. Lastly, I may not be Ms. Balogh's biggest fan, but I am a fan nonetheless and I will continue to purchase her books.

Same old, same old.... 15. August 2014
Von Lethe2010 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have been reading Mary Balogh's books since her early Regency novels, post-Heyer (when it was still racy to have one or two very short sex scenes, and preferably none at all). I still consider "The Temporary Wife" to be one of the single finest romance novels ever written. But this? It is a rehashed storyline, made tolerable by Balogh's undeniable skill at dialogue. She lacks Heyer's ear for historic slang, but Balogh's characters do have some of the most skillfully written dialogue, sentences both verbal and mental that sound "real" and in character. But overall, Balogh hit her peak 10 yrs ago with the Bedwyn series, including prequels/sequels. Nothing she has done since has even come close - and certainly not this. Yes, both characters were likable. Yes, the plot made sense. And yes, I felt the inescapable boredom of "this author has done this before, so many times...and was better then."

I bought this book not knowing there were two others before it, but as it stands alone, this wasn't a problem. But I will not be buying the first two, nor will I buy any future ones. Sorry, Ms Balogh, but I'll just keep re-reading your "Summer to Remember" and "Slightly Scandalous" novels. Maybe someday you'll recapture the magic, but your more recent books have been letdowns. Well-crafted, but uninspired and unmemorable.

Setting the Bar High 1. Juli 2014
Von Shelia Hudnall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
For the record, I advance ordered this book in its e-book format. Indeed as I have the first two books in this series. Yes, I have always liked Mary's work enough to do that.

The Escape is the exception to my quiet enjoyment of Ms. Balogh's warm, deceptively simple style of romance. She has set the bar high for the rest of the series with this one.

If I were to attach a theme to this one it would be one simple word: Choice. Choices made with difficult situations and after life-altering events. Benedict and Samantha both have been through the later and come to a place they must deal with the former. Wounded but healing they recognize in each other a kindred soul who wants to truly live.

Sounds rather melodramatic doesn't it? No, it really isn't. There is laughter between them at some of the situations they find themselves in.

Samantha is different from other Balogh heroines. Estranged from what little family she knows about and widowed, she is left with the choice of either domestic imprisonment with a puritanical father-in-law or finding a place in the world where she can live her life with dignity and, yes, some joy. You see, she wants to dance.

Benedict has been severely crippled from war and left with an estate he does not want to wrest from the hands of a younger brother who has taken care of it lovingly for years. With the help of his friends and his own fierce determination he has fought his way to a state of physical independence few have expected of him. And without an estate to take up his time and energies what is an aristocratic former Army major to do? For you see, he wants to dance.

One almost expects one of Ms. Balogh's familiar devices to emerge and it does but not to conclusion, thankfully. Here it would not have worked where it has in her other books. Samantha needs to be free and Benedict recognizes that need. Independence is a need reflected in himself. He cannot deny it there; he will not deny it in her either.

Choice again and again. Choices made with the heart and, yes, tempered with the dictates of the society they live in. Yes, the story concludes in the accepted romantic fashion---at the altar rail but with a mature and joyous completion not often found. They know each other in every way two people can. And their choice (that word again!) is each other.

I am sure others will find points to disagree with. Someone always does. I may myself when I read it again as I always do. And there is no reason to trust me. Who am I? But I will end this review with this:

Find your favorite reading spot, a cup or glass of your favorite beverage, and curl up with this book. (Chocolate optional and maybe unnecessary). Open it up and let Mary draw you in. Trust her. I don't think you will be disappointed at all.
