Publisher's Summary

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 not marriageable. With little hope for the future, she agrees to wed a gentleman she's never met. Unfortunately, his aloof manner proves difficult to bear.
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?

Compelling Story & Great Narration!

They called her the Miracle Orphan because she was the sole survivor of a train wreck that killed her Mother and Father.

Sent to an orphanage as soon as her injuries allowed she was soon adopted by a benevolent couple, or were they?

Because of her physical and emotional scars, her adopted parent made Larken believe she was un-marriageable, with no other options than to marry a man of their choosing or be thrown out of their house into the street with no money and no place to go. They sold her into a marriage of convenience to a dispassionate gentleman of means to care for his ward.

This story has many twists and turns with few things as they seem. It keeps your interest from beginning to end.

Mr. King's ward is a charming young man of 4 years old who tugs at your heart strings. He, too, is an orphan having just lost his mother and not knowing a father; being said to be born "on the other side of the blanket".

This is my first book by S. G. Rogers, but it won't be my last. She's a talented author, and Stevie Zimmerman a perfect choice for narrator.

I highly recommend this book!

If you could sum up Larken in three words, what would they be?

Strong, wise, spirited


Who was your favorite character and why?

Larkin and Miles had a wonderful relationship.


What about Stevie Zimmerman’s performance did you like?

Excellent timing and voice


Any additional comments?

While a steady diet of Regency romance would be boring, I enjoy picking up a good one and this one was good. The author avoided the whole horrible male, suddenly falls in love by having the romance blossom slowly with obstacles popping up to slow down the eventual love scene.
