Turning the calendar to January means reflection on the year past and resolutions for change in the New Year. For some, life-changing situations can arise at other times.
Such is the case with the heroine of A SCANDALOUS PROPOSAL. Cut off by both families when they eloped, after the death of her soldier husband, gently-born Emily Spenser is grateful to return to London and make a living for herself and her beloved son as a shopkeeper, designing and selling bonnets to the ton. Threatened by the bully boys of her landlord who want to extort a higher rent, she feels she has no choice but to accept the protection of a wealthy earl.
Evan Mansfield is thrilled when the beautiful but mysterious “Madame Emilie” agrees to become his mistress—until he realizes that decision was dictated by necessity rather than desire. Unwilling to give her up, he tries to determine the cause of her distress—even as his tender care and passionate lovemaking awaken desires Emily had thought dead forever. But with her son at risk, can she dare trust the truth to the man who’s come to hold her heart?
