The Escape is an awesome read by Mary Balogh. Ms Balogh has been consistent in impressing me with the wonderful characters in her books. The Escape is no exception. Ben and Samantha's story is packed with drama, humor and heat. The Escape is a well written historical romance that will take you from England to Wales as Ben and Samantha's tale unfolds. I enjoyed The Escape and look forward to reading more from Mary Balogh in the future. The Escape is book 3 of the Survivor's Club Series, but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
