A MOST INDECENT PROPOSAL
Annabelle Green needs a husband-and quickly. To inherit the only home she’s ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to . . .
Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking . . . and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He’ll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can’t control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames-of wicked desire.
This book is an interesting twist on the friends to lovers concept.
Annabelle must marry by her 25th birthday which is not long in coming.
Quinn is set on not marrying anyone but is drawn to the beautiful young woman he remembers as a bookish girl. Another solution, he offers to help her find a husband, but finds himself jealous of any man that lays a hand on her.
Will these two who are clearly meant for each other put aside any differences and make a lasting match?
I like friends to lovers stories and found this convoluted tale well written. I gave it 4.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and gave it a sensual rating of 3.25 of 5.0 flames.
Most often the scenes were just heated kissing or petting but they were hot none the less.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via NetGalley from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Can love conquer all things?
At seventeen, Miss Georgiana Blake knows that John Crawford is the only man she will ever love — and that she will marry him.
Never mind that John is the bastard son of an Earl, or that he is leaving to fight in India. John is indestructible: he will be back, and she will wait.
Georgiana cannot imagine how crucial her marriage will become to her family. Though she knows that she is giving up love and happiness, she must forsake John.
A man whose virtue is not forgiveness.
If you love the elegance of the 18th century with its balls, duels, wigs, wars — and you enjoy tales of deep passion, betrayal and a love that survives all things, this story is for you. Find out what happens when a strong, wild man is sure that there is only one woman for him — and this woman belongs to another.

A lady should be the image of elegance and calm, but those words have never applied to Mercy, Duchess of Romsey. A widow and mother, Mercy is lonely and floundering to keep the estate afloat. When she discovers the existence of Leopold Randall, her husband’s estranged cousin, Mercy immediately offers to help him locate his missing siblings if he helps her return the estate to order.
Leopold has returned to Hampshire for only one purpose—to learn the fate of his missing siblings. Unfortunately, the current duchess is clueless and out of her depth. Her struggle tugs at Leopold’s sense of duty and her bold nature tempts him unbearably. When Leopold discovers their lives are forever entwined, he vows to protect Mercy and her innocent son.
