Publisher's Summary

An Indecent Proposal
Lady Lucy MacMorlan may have forsworn men and marriage, but that doesn't mean she won't agree to profit from writing love letters for her brother's friends - letters that become increasingly racy as her fame grows. That is, until she inadvertently ruins the betrothal of a notorious laird....
Robert, the dashing Marquis of Methven, is onto Lucy's secret. And he certainly doesn't intend to let the lovely Lady Lucy have the last word, especially when her letters suggest she is considerably more experienced than he realized.
But Lucy's knowledge is not based on past seductions. If she continues to write letters, she'll need to conduct some firsthand research. Robert has secrets of his own, but he is all too willing to aid a lady in need, especially when he desperately needs a bride....

Regency Lovers Will Enjoy

This first novel in the series is a well paced story that is not an intellectual romance but a light-hearted, cute and entertaining book. It’s a feel good Harlequin romance with a spunky heroine and strong hero.

This is the love story of Lucy and Robert. The first part of the book is focused primarially on their backgrounds: before they met and how they met. The second half shows their lives as a couple.

Anyone who enjoys regency novels will like this one. It’s very sweet

{Note: I finished this book before reviewing it. The author’s writing is somewhat vague in areas of less importance and more detailed in the areas of value. This lets us focus on the major points and skim the minor areas. Very cleaver use of words and time.}

I really did want to enjoy this book, but it was poorly written, in my opinion. It was disjointed. Nicola Cornick lays no foundation for many scenes--some explained how and why later, some not. One example: the heroine, Lucy, was kidnapped at her uncles request, she was knocked out and awakened to the hero administering to her, with no indication how he got there, how he found out she'd been taken, and how he'd rescued her from the kidnappers. Later, he told her he had run the kidnappers off....and still later, in his thoughts, he mentioned Lucy's sister told him she'd been carried off--but it does not say how she knew.

I'm on the second half of the book now, but don't know if I can sit through another 4 hours. When I was a teenager we called nonsensical things 'corny'...I think 'corny' is a fit description of "The lady and the Laird".

Alison Larkin has a nice voice, but she certainly can't do male voices--some of her voice inflections make me smile, although not meant to be humorous.
