Can An Improper Proposal
Adam Greyhawke is through with marriage. After losing his wife at a young age, he’s more interested in carousing and gambling at the Heirs’ Club than taking another trip to the altar. When his obligations as the Earl of Greyhawke thrust him into the heart of Society, he dreads the boredom that only a ballroom can inspire in a roguish scoundrel. That is, until he meets a bewitching young woman who captures his curiosity—and reminds him just how delicious desire can be.
Lead To True And Lasting Passion?
Miss Katharine Wright is accustomed to men interested only in her generous dowry. Adam’s attraction is far more powerful—he tests her wits and her courage at every turn, until she finds herself longing to fulfill an everlasting passion she never imagined was possible. But the breathtakingly handsome nobleman is as stubborn as he is scandalous, and Katharine must be the one to convince him that real love is worth any risk…
Adam Greyhawke supposed there were worse deaths than being shot by an irate husband.
Adam lost both his wife and child during a difficult childbirth and he feels that he’s responsible. He’s terrified of every getting married and having children again just in case that it happens again to another woman. Because of this he has left the London scene for two years now. But all this is changing when he inherits the title of Earl of Greyhawke and is forced to adopt Dixon, a 5-year-old orphan as his heir. With his newfound duties Adam needs to travel to London for business and rejoins the ton. Where he meets the lovely Katherine Wright. Adam is drawn to Katherine immediately.
I fell in love with the characters immediately; I was hooked from the start of the book right to the finish. I loved the chemistry between Adam and Katherine just burns off the books. I loved their sassy and witty remarks to each other and they were an adorable couple. The entire book was centred around the couples romance and it was done so very well that would keep you interested right till the end. The author had also done some research on the era, it was very well done indeed. I really enjoyed the book and loved the era but I must say that as much as I loved Adam but in the beginning he sometimes did get on my nerves with his negativity towards marriage even though he felt the way that he did with Katherine.
I would recommend this book for some light reading.
