My Review

An Unlikely Proposition

An Unlikely Proposition features two heroines, and I loved them both. Teenager Eleanor had married a sweet well-off older man simply for security. Sadly, her husband passed away soon after the wedding, and now that the proper year of mourning is over, Eleanor is looking forward to being more independent and exploring her options. For propriety’s sake, she needs a chaperone, so she hires Thalia, who is not much older, to live with her and serve as her official companion. Predictably, both girls find true love by the end of the book, but not without some missteps and wrong turns along the way. This is a fun book for when you need a purely frivolous diversion. Highly entertaining!

My Rating

From the Publisher

A standalone companion to An Improbable Season, this Regency romance is about following your heart, pursuing your dreams, and falling head over heels in love.

Eleanor did not come to London to be proper and boring. After the death of her husband and a year of mourning, the seventeen-year-old wants nothing more than her independence and to have a little fun. She’s hardly looking to remarry, despite pressures from her late husband’s nephew, who is keen on obtaining her inheritance. Eleanor quickly devises a plan that includes a fake engagement. What’s not a part of the plan? Falling for a dashing, quiet man outside of her social circle – a man who is not her betrothed. Can she survive the Season with her heart and her fortune intact?

Thalia is determined to begin afresh after a disastrous first Season in London. No romantic distractions, but only her work as a poet and newfound companion to Eleanor. Determined to get her poems published, she struggles to be taken seriously as a female writer. As the spring progresses, Thalia does not expect to take interest in a man from her past (a man who is engaged to her employer, no less!), but some feelings demand to be felt even if the timing isn’t quite right.

Rosalyn Eves’s An Unlikely Proposition is a transportive Regency drama that captures the sparkle of London, thrill of friendship, and swoon of new love.
