Regency Historical. Gwendoline Grayson, Lady Muir has had more than her fair share of heartbreak. Before her brief, tumultuous marriage ended with her husband's suicide, a riding accident claimed the life of her unborn child and left Gwen with permanent injuries. Hugo Emes, the new Lord Trentham, is a merchant's son and ex-soldier whose heroism has gained him a title and estate -- along with the expectation to marry and produce an heir. Neither Gwen nor Hugo particularly wants to wed, but neither do they expect to fall in love. Although she's made appearances in some of author Mary Balogh's other books, including One Night for Love and A Summer to Remember, Gwen finally takes center stage in this 1st installment of The Survivors' Club Series.
“Oh, Hugo. One gives painting a try when one has never held a brush in one's hand before. Or climbing a steep cliff face when one is afraid of heights or eating an unfamiliar food when one does not really like the look of it. If one likes it, whatever it is, one can keep going. If one does not, one can stop and try something else. One cannot try marriage. Once one is in, there is no way out.”Gwendoline Grayson
“Oh, not gossip, Lord Trentham. Speculation. The ton loves nothing more during the Season than to play matchmaker or at least to speculate upon who is paying court to whom and what the outcome is likely to be. Word will soon have it that you are courting me.”Gwendoline Grayson
“Polite people do not laugh at someone or applaud him derisively unless they know he will understand their affection and join in their laughter.”Gwendoline Grayson
