An Intriguing Proposition (The Defiant Hearts Series, Prequel)

An Intriguing Proposition (The Defiant Hearts Series, Prequel) by [Baily, Sydney Jane]

Following her father's untimely death, eldest daughter Elise Malloy discovers that the family home is collateral for a mysterious loan. With no record of payments made from her father's accounts, whoever was paying the bank has now stopped, and foreclosure is imminent.

Desperate to keep the news from her grieving, funds-starved family, Elise answers the bank summons and faces Michael Bradley, an old flame who still owns her heart. When Michael extends an unseemly dinner invitation, Elise invents a nameless suitor as an excuse to refuse.

Now, to save face, she must produce him.

Jonathon Amory, Esquire, seems the perfect choice, until her long-desired relationship with Michael unexpectedly catches fire, and Jonathon makes it clear he will stop at nothing to destroy her family and lock her into a loveless marriage.


4.0 out of 5 stars quick historicalSeptember 16, 2016
This review is from: An Intriguing Proposition (The Defiant Hearts Series, Prequel) (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
I have to say, this was a cute short historical book. I like that it wasn't flowery and prolonged. The drama and romance balanced each other out. Being set in America, there was less propriety. The characters actually developed more of a relationship than instant lust. It was just too predictable. I would recommend it though, if you want a quick read.
