STORY: A stubborn nobleman and a willful young woman are at the heart of bestselling author Amelia Grey’s newest love story.
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…
REVIEW: Adam Greyhawke, the eighth Earl of Greyhawke, lost his wife and child during childbirth 2 years ago. Since then he has been living in a cottage on the bleak, cold, and gray coast of Yorkshire which matchs his constant mood. He has no interest in being an Earl and has asked the Prince to bestow his title on his heir. However, the Prince has declined his request. His heir has been found and is his cousin Master Dixon Greyhawke, age 5. Adam will now be the boy’s guardian. Adam has no intention of getting married and running the risk of experiencing this loss again. As he has no other choice but to accept the Prince’s decision, he decides to return to London with Dixon, live in his home in Mayfair and take over his duties. It is good for Adam to see his good friends again and become part of the Heir’s Club.
Miss Katherine Wright, age 20, is a lovely young woman that Adam has met at a ball. He is saddened to find that she uses a cane to walk and is unable to dance with him. She is part of the Wilted Tea Society which is a group of spinsters who consider themselves to be ineligible for marriage. Katherine and her family were in a carriage accident when she was young. Her entire family was killed but she was left injured. After yet another fall down the stairs some years ago, her leg was injured again. Since then, she walks with a slight limp and feels more secure using a cane.
Adam is quite taken with Katherine and likes her personality. He just wishes he could get her to put her cane aside and try to dance with him. As they get to know one another more their attraction grows. Before long Katherine gives in and she and Adam practice dancing. He is hoping she will learn to give up her dependence on the cane. They are now falling in love and plan to marry but Adam is determined that he will never risk her getting with child.
How can they have a loving and successful marriage? Is there an answer?
I really loved this book. Both Adam and Katherine are damaged but are also strong. The feelings they have for each other is deep and has the potential to be very lasting. But, will it?
