Larken by S.G. Rogers, Book Review
The sole survivor of a train accident, young Larken Burke is dubbed the Miracle Orphan. Four years later, however, her life is far from fortunate. Because of her emotional and physical scars, she believes she’s un-marriageable. With little hope for the future, she agrees to wed a gentleman she’s never met. Unfortunately, his aloof manner proves difficult to take.
Marked by romantic tragedy and the loss of his brother, Brandon King has forsworn marriage. Obliged to take in a ward, he advertises for a mail-order bride to raise the boy. Since the union is to be a marriage in name only, his criteria are youthful age, a certain level of intellect, good breeding, and that the girl shouldn’t be so ill-favored she would embarrass him in society. To his dismay, he gets more than he’d bargained for.
Will it take a miracle for Mr. and Mrs. King to fall in love, or is their marriage another accident waiting to happen?
Larken is the kind of book I love to read! It has a beautiful cover and the story pulled me in and kept me there the entire time! From one page to the next I thought I knew where the story was going, but Rogers threw me several curve balls I didn't see coming! I was rooting for Larken the entire time and felt I came to know her. Myles was such a breath of fresh air, I loved every scene he was a part of! He was an endearing little boy! If you think you have this book figured out, just stop there! This is not your typical historical romance, it is so much better!!! I am still reeling from the final curve ball of the book! If you are on the fence about buying this book, do yourself a favor and click the purchase button, you won't be sorry!!!
