Book Review: Larken by S.G. Rogers

Larken (Graceling Hall #1) by S.G. Rogers
Genre: Adult (Historical Romance)
Date Published: October 14, 2014
Publisher: Idunn Court Publishing

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 first book in the Graceling Hall series by S.G. Rogers. I really enjoyed the characters in this book, especially Larken's character. She hasn't let her less than stellar upbringing hold her down in life. She has it figured out, and I enjoyed reading from her point a view. Brandon thought he had it together, but I don't think he did. He had a charming teddy bear in denial type personality that was endearing. This was a cute and fast read, if not a bit predictable at times, but I'm still curious about the next book.

Originally from Southern California, Suzanne G. Rogers has also lived in Asheville, North Carolina and Laurel, Mississippi. Currently residing in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, Suzanne writes sweet historical romance, fantasy, and romantic fantasy stories.  She’s owned by two hairless cats, Houdini and Nikita, and lives on an island populated by exotic birds, deer and the occasional gator. Tab is her beverage of choice, but when she imbibes, a cranberry vodka martini doesn’t go amiss.
