the proposition

The Proposition, published in December 1999

 

 

From Goodreads:

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.

 

 

My Thoughts:

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.

Seduce Me At Sunrise, published in September 2008

From Goodreads:

He has tried hard to forget her.

Kev Merripen has longed for the beautiful, well-bred Winnifred Hathaway ever since her family rescued him from the brink of death when he was just a boy. But this handsome Gypsy is a man of mysterious origins—and he fears that the darkness of his past could crush delicate, luminous Win. So Kev refuses to submit to temptation…and before long Win is torn from him by a devastating twist of fate.

Can she remember the man he once was?

Then, Win returns to England…only to find that Kev has hardened into a man who will deny love at all costs. Meantime, an attractive, seductive suitor has set his sights on Win. It’s now or never for Kev to make his move. But first, he must confront a dangerous secret about his destiny—or risk losing the only woman he has lived for…

My Thoughts:

I love Lisa Kleypas’ The Hathaways series and although my ultimate favorite is Married by Morning, this is my second favorite. I love the steadfastness of the feelings of the characters. I also love the intensity and rawness of the emotions that Lisa Kleypas wonderfully presents in this book.

This is a story that was as much about the happy ending as it was about the journey the characters went through in order to get to that happy ending. It was a very satisfying and heartwarming read. And definitely worthy of commendations and recommendations.

To Have and To Hold, first published in 1995

From Goodreads:

Suave, cynical, and too handsome for his own good, Sebastian Verlaine never expects to become a magistrate judging the petty crimes of his tenants and neighbors. Nor can the new Viscount D’Aubrey foresee that, when a fallen woman appears before him, he’ll find himself beguiled against all reason to alter her terrible fate….

Rachel Wade has served time in prison for her husband’s violent death, but she soon discovers that freedom has its own price. For no one will offer her a second chance but a jaded viscount who needs a housekeeper. Scorned by the townspeople of Wyckerley as D’Aubrey’s mistress, tempted beyond her will by the devilish lord, Rachel risks all she had to claim a life of her own…and a love that will last for all time.

My Thoughts:

This is the first time I’m featuring a book that I haven’t read yet but has intrigued me for quite some time now because of the mixed reviews and feedback that I’m reading about it. There are some serious issues about morals and conscience and the question of whether the author has made the hero too irredeemable. But I did read a beautiful review about it by AnimeJune @ Gossamer Obsessions and even though there are issues that initially turned me off, I’m willing to give this one a try and see for myself how I would feel about it.
