Get it at Amazonfrom our DIK review: The Temporary Wife is one of those perfect romances, where the emphasis is on romance rather than a lot of extracurricular activity. And within the scope of the category-sized story, Balogh delivers a master class on how to write a Marriage of Convenience plot. A Promise of Spring is a fabulous story of a young ingénue, a marriage of convenience, and a spouse who is ten years older - but the hero is the young innocent and the heroine the older and more experienced of the two. This book is a true commentary on how a couple, who've known each other peripherally but are now yoked together, negotiates marriage. Both The Temporary Wife and A Promise of Spring are two previously-published books that have been reprinted in an omnibus edition. They’re quintessential traditional Regencies and by such a talented author; I loved the time I spent reading them and plan to re-read soon.
