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.


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!!
