A Most Scandalous Proposal

A Most Scandalous Proposal - Ashlyn Macnamara I think that my choosing A Most Scandalous Proposal for review was kismet! I had reached a point in my reading where I needed something very different from Alpha-hole heroes, frustrating heroines and debut authors who seem to write using a checklist of Historical romance clichés. This story hit all of the right buttons for me, including one of my favorite plot devices, making it a very enjoyable read.

The St. Clair sisters are no strangers to a London season, having both been out for a few years without a successful match. It doesn’t help that both women have very different expectations about their futures which are clouding any possibility of happiness. Sophia has spent her failed seasons pining for the love of Mr. William Ludlowe, expecting that once he truly sees her it will be an instant love for him too and they will be blissfully wed. Julia is less interested in the courtship dance with an eligible man having seen how her sister’s unrequited love for Mr. Ludlowe has destroyed her self-confidence. To Julia, any marriage she agrees to would be of a practical nature only, with husband and wife being companions only rather than passionate equals in a relationship. For both women, their best laid plans about the future are thrown into complete turmoil when, unbeknownst to them, Julia is betrothed to the new Earl of Clivesden; William Ludlowe!
