This week, I’m featuring Judith Ivory.
The Proposition, published in December 1999
No man, gentleman or otherwise, has ever looked at Lady Edwina Bollash the way the brash, handsome man standing before her is doing now. Edwina has accepted the challenge to transform incorrigible Mick Tremore into a gentleman in just six weeks. And although the linguist is sure she can rise to the task, she isn’t at all certain she won’t swoon under his frankly sensuous gaze before her job is done.
Mick has lived outside of London society long enough to know that appearances can be deceiving. Edwina might look all buttoned up—the perfect English lady—but there is unleashed passion existing just below her placid facade (not to mention a great pair of legs!). And as she prepares him to take his place in society, Mick prepares Edwina to take her place in his heart…and in his bed.
I haven’t actually read this book. Although I did read an amazing review, again by the eloquent AnimeJune @ Gossamer Obsessions (you can read it HERE) and was really intrigued by the set-up. The characters seem so alive giving me that feeling of wanting to meet them and read about their story. Plus, I always love a re-telling of Pygmalion.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.
