PROPOSITIONED BY A LADY
Erotic, Regency Romance
Rating: 4 Cups
Lady Lydia Melior returns home to her father’s house after her husband dies. She knows that he will try to find her another husband; or worse, find one for her sister, if she does not act quickly.
Lord Trout told himself he was over Lydia, but he never forgave her for choosing another man over him. When she offers to be his mistress, he is angry, until the truth of her marriage choice is revealed.
Lydia offers herself to Trout in exchange for the money her father needs to pay off his gambling debts. He realizes that part of the reason he is so angry is because he still loves her. After learning about her choices and her married life, he asks her to marry him. Lydia denies him because he needs an heir for his title and she is barren. He tries to convince her to change her mind.
Propositioned by a Lady is a wonderful book. Ms. Cameron’s characters were well written and believable. I loved how Lord Trout was able to move past his hurt and love Lydia openly as he tried to convince her to marry him. That love, combined with how he solved situations in a commanding way, only moved him up the hero scale. Lydia’s strong resolve to change her situation made her a heroine I cheered and cried for. These two characters, along with the unraveling exciting plot, kept me quickly turning pages until the end and wishing for more.
