This was a fun story to read. I like Rose and Oliver and wish the story had been longer.
A Wicked Proposition
on Aug. 06, 2012
I will admit I had to finish reading it, could hardly put it down, but did not like the fact that the story did not get a wrap up. I now see there is a second book, but cannot bring myself to read it. This is not a typical Regency - it is too dark for my taste. I don't particularly care for books that have main characters that stretch to more than one book. I did not like that Nicholas' problem was not resolved (Lord Rudd) and the danger threatening Catherine from Lord Dartmouth and Lily. I'm pleased to see the other reviewers loved it. It is just not my taste.
I enjoyed the story but was disappointed with the loose ends. The previous governesses disappeared and all clues say they were killed, don't know why or who. Was a second book intended to clear up these issues?
I just downloaded the book. I have been hoping it would eventually be available in eBook. I read it many years ago in paper. I remember parts of it and am looking forward to rereading it to refresh my memory which tells me it was an great story. I know I will not be disappointed.
