Review & Giveaway: A Scandalous Proposal by Kasey Michaels

A Scandalous Proposal
The Little Season #2
Kasey Michaels
April 2016 | HQN Books


Who would have thought a man could tire of being fawned over and flirted with? Ever since Cooper Townsend returned from France as a hero with a new title, he has been relentlessly pursued by every marriageable miss in London. Perhaps that's why the unconventional Miss Daniella Foster is so appealing. She doesn't simper or flatter. She only wants him to help unmask her sister's blackmailer, and Coop has never been so intrigued...

Let every other woman in London fight over His Lordship's romantic attentions. Marriage is the last thing on Dany's mind... at least until she samples his illicit kisses. Now, as a mutual enemy races to ruin Coop's reputation and Dany's family name, an engagement of convenience will spark an unlikely passion that might save them both.

Kasey Michaels is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than 110 books (she doesn't count them). Kasey has received four coveted Starred Reviews from Publishers Weekly, three for historical romance, The Secrets of the Heart, The Butler Did It, and A Gentleman By Any Other Name, and for the contemporary romance Love To Love You Baby. She is a recipient of the RITA, a Waldenbooks and Bookrak Bestseller award, and many awards from Romantic Times magazine, including a Career Achievement award for her Regency era historical romances. She is an Honor Roll author in Romance Writers of America, Inc. (RWA), and is a past president of Novelists, Inc. (NINC), the only international writers organization devoted solely to the needs of multi-published authors.

It's been a while since I've read anything by Kasey Michaels. I can remember that I really enjoyed her contemporary books. They always made me chuckle. I haven't really read any of Michaels historical's but want to give one a try.

I really liked the characters. I found Dany to charming, fun and humors. She stood for what she believed in. You have to feel for Cooper and the pickle he's gotten into. I liked the idea of the story, some of the story line isn't fresh but parts are.

I didn't feel that A Scandalous Proposal has the same humor or feel to it that the other books by her had. I still liked it but I was left wanting more. I'm not sure if it's because I didn't read book one in the series or not. I'm not saying it's a bad book, but there are many parts of it that I really enjoyed. But as a whole it left me feeling flat. 

It's a solid three star book but I can't go higher then that. 

If you've read Scandalous Proposal or any other books by Kasey Michaels I'd love to hear your thought. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
