BOOK DESCRIPTION, FROM AMAZON

In life there are choices…

Spinster Iris Hedley was once the darling of the ton until her father lost his fortune through an illness of the mind. Reduced to living as a penniless guest while her father rots in debtors prison, she’s determined to escape unscrupulous robbers who’ve set her to spy on the ton by the only means possible—by becoming a wealthy mans mistress. Unfortunately for Iris, her proper upbringing never covered intimacy or seduction so she asks the one man she trusts for help with private lessons in the duties of a mistress.

…in love there is but one

Martin Andrews, the Earl of Louth, may have a soft spot for tiny Iris Hedley, especially after her father fled London with a horde of debtors nipping at his heels. Her request for lessons in seduction leaves him reeling and although tempted it’s an offer he must refuse for her own good. Convinced she’s headed for heartbreak, he sets out to prove that surrendering to wicked pleasure is not worth the sacrifice of her future only to discover that her problems are more complicated than his own.

A sizzling regency historical romance novel.

An Improper Proposal is the sixth novel in the Distinguished Rogues Series. Other titles are:

Book 1: Chills
Book 2: Broken
Book 3: Charity
Book 4: An Accidental Affair
Book 5: Keepsake

Chills, Broken and Charity are also available as a boxed set.

MY THOUGHTS

Iris Hedley, living with a friend due to circumstances she had no control over, wanted to find a way to earn money.  But, a woman could only get money by marrying well, or being a mistress.  Due to family secrets, Iris felt she could only become a mistress, but that could further tarnish her family name.  Iris approached Martin, a handsome wealthy Earl, with secrets of his own to be his mistress.  Would this work, could he take on another mistress.  With so many secrets between the two could they ever have an arrangement?

I have never been a fan of the historical genre, not because I don’t like to read it, but because I have never read it before.  I am glad to say this being my first, that I am hooked.  This book is part of a series, but read as a stand alone.  The book had me intrigued, kept my attention and had me wanting more.   I enjoyed the wide range of characters and enjoyed the story line.  This is also a very hot read.  The love scenes are very sexy and written in a way that they are very believable.  I feel any reader, no matter what genre you favor would enjoy this book.  I highly recommend!!

…in love there is but one

Martin Andrews, the Earl of Louth, may have a soft spot for tiny Iris Hedley, especially after her father fled London with a horde of debtors nipping at his heels. Her request for lessons in seduction leaves him reeling and although tempted it’s an offer he must refuse for her own good.

Convinced she’s headed for heartbreak, he sets out to prove that surrendering to wicked pleasure is not worth the sacrifice of her future only to discover that her problems are more complicated than his own.

EXCERPT:

The world crashed down on Martin Andrew, Lord Louth’s, head at precisely eleven o’clock in the morning in the private residence he owned on Pollen Street, London. “What do you mean Vivian is dead?”

Mrs. Hughes, his former mistress’s housekeeper, looked on him with sorrowful eyes. “She died several days ago, my lord.”

“I don’t believe you.”

“I am sorry to be the bearer of such sad news.” Mrs. Hughes winced. “I know you have no reason to mourn Mrs. Rose after all the trouble she put you through, but I thought you would want to know.”

Martin turned away to hide his reaction. Shock. Dismay. Grief. He might not have been Vivian’s protector anymore but he had cared enough about her welfare to allow her to lease the house long after their arrangement had ended. He had not laid eyes on Vivian in six months or more, at her request, nor had he shared a bed with her in closer to eight, also by her request.

Another protector had snatched Vivian up a few days after their parting, ensuring no reconciliation was ever possible between them. The bitter sting of discovering she loved another had tainted their last words to each other, and now he could never make peace with her.

He glanced around, at last noticing the house was draped in mourning colors. “Is she here?”

“No, my lord.” The housekeeper clasped her hands together at her waist. “Lord Fallow took her body and made arrangements for a private burial. He was beside himself and would not permit us to see her or attend services.”

Martin nodded slowly, an uncomfortable ache building in his chest. He might not have been Vivian’s choice as a protector, but she had been in his life for a long time and he wished he’d known about her passing sooner. “Did she suffer?”

There was nothing Vivian had hated more than discomfort or being inconvenienced. He hoped her death had been swift and painless.

“No more than any woman,” Mrs. Hughes informed him. “I thought everything was well but her death took me by surprise.”

Martin turned slowly, unable to believe his ears. “What do you mean by ‘no more than any woman’? She is dead, for heaven’s sake.”

Mrs. Hughes regarded him with widened eyes. “She delivered her daughter easily, looked up into my face smiling, and when I returned to her after taking the girl away for wrapping, she was gone. So suddenly. Without a whimper of protest or warning.”

“Daughter?” Martin staggered back a step. “She was with child?”

Review: Red Baron Brick Oven Pizza

 

I recently had the chance to try the new Brick Oven Pizza from Red Baron.  I decided to try the cheese pizza.  It was a hit.  It has a crisp crust, mild sauce flavor and the cheese was perfectly melted.  The flavors were perfect and complimented each other.  I enjoyed them so much I am off to the store soon to try all of the other flavors.  I do recommend you give the Red Baron Brick Oven Pizza’s a try.

I received a coupon from BZZ AGENT, for a free pizza to try in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

Book Description From Amazon

For several months Carly Adams has worked at Bennett Services. She loves her job but rumor has it that the more popular assistants do more than file, or errands. When Carly gets the opportunity step in for someone at work, she meets Parker and Amber. They need someone to assist them for the upcoming game convention in Las Vegas.
But this is also their anniversary and Parker always gets Amber what she wants for their anniversary. This year her present is Carly.

MY THOUGHTS

When Carly arrived to work she never imagined the temp agency would be sending her on the job of a lifetime.  A gamer convention and sex with a hot couple!!

Izzy Szyn is a new author and I feel is a great addition to the genre.  This book is well written and definitely HOT!!  The characters were fun to meet and I hope the author writes more about this threesome in the future.  I feel we will be hearing a lot more about Izzy in the future, so go grab yourself a Pepsi and start reading The Anniversary Present: A Gift of Love.  A highly recommended read!!!
