FROM GOODREADS:  An Intriguing Proposition

Passion. Seduction. Pleasure. These are the qualities of any courtesan worth her salt. As owner of The Starling Club, London's most notorious house of ill-repute, Madam Philomena McGrattan has seen it all, heard it all, done it all. There is little that surprises her anymore, and even less that excites her. So when she is presented a chance at an irresistible seduction, she can't help but rise to the challenge.  

A Dangerous Game

Studiousness. Practicality. Discipline. Such are the attributes of a good scholar, and such are the principles of Lord Spencer Hornsby has built his life around. Alone in the Welsh countryside, with only his wolfhounds for company, Spencer has thrown himself into his work. There is little time for the pleasures of society, not even to think of the joys of the fairer sex. But when an unexpected guest arrives at his isolated hunting lodge, Spencer cannot help but be baffled by the presence of this dangerously beautiful woman. And when he discovers the reason for her arrival, and the pleasures she promises, he cannot help but find himself irresistibly intrigued. 

MY TAKE:    This was a very enjoyable story. The author has done a thorough job of fleshing out her characters (no pun intended). They have the depth and backstory needed to make you really care about them and what is happening to them in the present story. 

Phil(omena) and Spencer are a perfect match with her being world-weary and he being world-wary. They balance each other out quite well. I think their strengths and weaknesses sort of dovetailed each others. 

If you are a fan of historical romance with a little bit of heat, this will suit you quite well. The sex scenes are very well written, not too explicit but just right. I highly recommend this story and am looking forward to the upcoming books starring Spencer's two brothers.

Out of 5 JEWELS, I give it:
