CAN AN INDECENT PROPOSAL
Eight years ago, a tall handsome stranger entered Lizzie Allbright’s bedchamber and consummated a marriage of the utmost necessity. The Marquis of Steyne agreed to wed and bed Lord Bute’s admittedly lovely daughter to pay off his mother’s gambling debts. But once the deed was done, Steyne’s lawfully-wedded wife vanished into the London night…
LEAD TO EVERLASTING LOVE?
Years later, Steyne has nearly forgotten about his runaway bride. But when he suddenly finds himself in need of an heir, he has no choice but to track her down. Living happily in a small village under an assumed name, Lizzie is surprised to see her husband—and to feel such a strong attraction to him. But she is downright shocked when he asks her to bear him a son. How can they possibly repeat the heated encounter of their ill-fated wedding night without falling hopelessly in love?...in Christina Brooke’s stunningly sexy Regency,The Wickedest Lord Alive.
I suppose this story could be considered a bit dark and twisty (those who watch Grey's Anatomy get it). Family problems, of course. I'm not certain the title fits the books, but - I'm not here to critique the title. Right?
For me, this book was hit and miss. There were parts where I was bored and hoping something - anything - would happen. There were other parts where I didn't want to put the book down to make dinner.
Perhaps there was too much turmoil and unexpected happenings. Still not an entirely bad read.
