Review: The Proposal by Mary Balogh

Looks like I'm slowly getting my reviewing mojo back :) Hopefully, I'll be able to get back into a routine before it gets disrupted again. And I guess it'll have to happen quickly since this week-end is the BBQ and I have plans for a shopping trip next week-end. And then, there's going to be a friend's b-day and after that, a friend's wedding. Hmmm, how did I get so busy?!?

Okay, let's get to the review before I get even more side-tracked LOL. Today's review is The Proposal by Mary Balogh and you'll find it over at Breezing Through. Ames and I join force to discuss The Proposal. This one has been in the work for quite a while, but you know, RL happened ^_^; Click here  for the review and enjoy!

The Proposal by Mary Balogh
published by Random House Publisher in May 2012
Gwendoline, Lady Muir, has seen her share of tragedy, especially since a freak accident took her husband much too soon. Content in a quiet life with friends and family, the young widow has no desire to marry again. But when Hugo, Lord Trentham, scoops her up in his arms after a fall, she feels a sensation that both shocks and emboldens her.

Hugo never intends to kiss Lady Muir, and frankly, he judges her to be a spoiled, frivolous—if beautiful—aristocrat. He is a gentleman in name only: a soldier whose bravery earned him a title; a merchant’s son who inherited his wealth. He is happiest when working the land, but duty and title now demand that he finds a wife. He doesn’t wish to court Lady Muir, nor have any role in the society games her kind thrives upon. Yet Hugo has never craved a woman more; Gwen’s guileless manner, infectious laugh, and lovely face have ruined him for any other woman. He wants her, but will she have him?

The hard, dour ex-military officer who so gently carried Gwen to safety is a man who needs a lesson in winning a woman’s heart. Despite her cautious nature, Gwen cannot ignore the attraction. As their two vastly different worlds come together, both will be challenged in unforeseen ways. But through courtship and seduction, Gwen soon finds that with each kiss, and with every caress, she cannot resist Hugo’s devotion, his desire, his love, and the promise of forever.

  1. Oh, this book!
    With Ms. Balogh I rather stick to her old books, they amused me.

  2. Alex - Yep, this book LOL. I have to admit, her older books were probably more unique and less formulaic. Although did you read A Matter of Class? I liked that one :)
