In English society, the rules of engagement have stood the test of time. Until a Reckless Bride falls deeply, scandalously in love…
CAN AN INDECENT PROPOSAL
When Lady Claire Jellicoe agreed to a walk in the moonlight, she never imagined her titled companion might have brutal motives. Nor could she have dreamed up such a brave rescue by the most unexpected savior of all: an inscrutable nobleman with a daring plan of escape—and a deliciously tempting embrace…
LEAD TO EVERLASTING LOVE?
Timothy Evans, the Duke of Fenmore, has palmed more treasures than he can count. Even for a man who grew up thieving in London’s stews, a stolen bride should be beyond the pale. But Fenmore won’t let scandal ruin the spirited beauty’s reputation. And now that she’s stolen his heart, how can he ever let her go…
Not your typical romance, this book is filled with tons of excitement & not just of the romantic variety! For a majority of the story, the search for the murderer is the main focus, with the majority of the romance on the back burner. But feelings keep coming up & getting tangled with the mystery, which I really liked! I loved how quickly Lady Claire caught on to things & how much the Duke not only loved her but respected her.
It was so easy to fall in love with this couple & I loved how there was more going on than just their relationship. There were a couple of things that I wasn't crazy about, but nothing major! I would definitely suggest picking it up!
