Publisher's Summary

Set amidst the glitz and glamour of high society Victorian London, The Proposition is an opulent tale of blossoming love. Lady Edwina Bollash is a woman of importance and distinction who has never been the object of any man's affection. However, when she meets Mick Tremore, a tall, handsome young man from the bottommost rung of society, she instantly attracts his attention. As Mick wants desperately to become a gentleman, Edwina decides to transform him into a man with class. From the start, she notices the way he looks at her. But what she doesn't yet realize is that as much as she is preparing him, he is preparing her for a place in his heart--and in his bed. Narrator Steven Crossley elevates the mounting passion of Ivory's prose, building tension with every breath and every sensuous word.

Very enjoyable as well as fun

I like Regency type romances but so many are similar plots just different characters. The Proposition turns things around. Granted it's a Pygmalion in reverse ... so much fun as well as a different slant on romance. The male character is delightful. He holds to his own values despite "station"...of course being fantasy, he has remarkable lineage to be uncovered. The narrator does a superb job with the accents. moving from street to polish yet always with humor. The scene in the hero's workman's tavern is hilarious as the heroine "loosens" up. If you want an entertaining story - yes there is some steam too - plus a lot of laughs, give this book a try.

Another favorite - excellently well read

The narrator of this one is a man which I found - interesting. The story is a wonderfully compelling romance, very steamy without being pornographic which so many are nowadays. Ugh. This one is beautiful, though and I really liked the narrator.
