Description from Amazon:
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.
Anna Harrington gives us another delightful romance in her Capturing The Carlisles series. Quinn caused Annabelle to be ruined some years prior and she has not forgiven or forgotten. Now she must find a husband so that she can claim her inheritance. Her Foster mother sends for Quinn, her nephew, to help in finding that husband. The local neighbor thinks he should be the bridegroom since her land would benefit his coffers and he seems to be a dastardly villain capable of all kinds of evils. Quinn realizes that if he is to help Annabelle he must find a way to circumvent his Uncle’s will.
Yes, there is romance. Two people so intent on not believing their true feelings for each other and sexual tension that just seems to grow more lusty. Well written with characters who although blind to their own feelings are none the less well drawn. A good book to curl up with on a rainy summer afternoon.
