Hot, sweep you off your feet Romance, The Rough Proposal is wicked evidence that no one does Romance like Jennifer Haymore!
Oh. My. Goodness. I loved this novel! To be fair I have been a fan of Haymore's ever since a friend of mine insisted that I read one of her novels. I've enjoyed most of her books and some I haven't enjoyed quite as much. To date the House of Trent series is my absolute favorite! Mostly I am drawn to Haymore's novels because they are so well-done, but it is the alpha heroes of her novels that keep me coming back!
Lukas Hawkins has to be one of my favorite heroes. As the second son in the House of Trent Lukas is on a mission. A mission to save his mother who was kidnapped. Lukas believes he already knows who captured his mother. Laws are meaningless to Lukas so long as it means confronting the brute that has taken his mother and returning her safely to their home. What Lukas hadn't counted on was running into a beautiful and mysterious angel, Emma Curtis who not only has the ability to capture Lukas's attention, but also his heart.
Emma is well aware of Lord Lukas's reputation and she plans to use it as her own advantage. Most men would never travel with a woman that is unmarried, but Emma knows that Lukas is not like most men that she has encountered. As a widow of only three months Emma is closely guarding her heart, but like Lukas she is on a mission. Together both Emma and Lukas are after Roger Morton. Roger has captured Lukas's mother and stolen a great deal of money from Emma's father. Together Emma and Lukas find passion and love, but love comes at a price. A twisting secret threatens their very love and both Lukas and Emma will have to decide if true love can truly conquer all.
Before reading A Rogue's Proposal I suggest reading The Duchess Hunt, book one of the Trent House series. It is just as tempting and as equally worthy of applause. I am greatly looking forward to the third book of Trent series as I am to any future novels penned by Haymore!
BOUND BY DESIRE
Lukas Hawkins, the second son of the troubled House of Trent, is on a mission: find his missing mother and her alleged kidnapper, a brute named Roger Morton. If bringing the villain to justice means breaking a few laws, then so be it. But when he encounters a mysterious stranger with the face of an angel and a body made for sin, Luke suddenly finds his task-and his heart-in peril.
Emma Curtis knows of Lord Lukas's rakish reputation-and hopes to use it to her advantage. While most men of honor would never travel alone with an unmarried woman, Luke is quite willing to take Emma on the road . . . and into his bed. As their journey carries them to unexpected places, Luke and Emma indulge their every passion and share their most private fantasies. But just when their deepest desires are finally within reach, a secret is revealed that threatens to end their love forever . . .
