This is a short story that stands on its own, while it leads us into a series, The Hathaway Heirs by Suzanna Medeiros.
There is a lot of STEAM in this one. Miranda married well twelve years ago. Well, but not all that happily. Her family wished her to have a title and wealth, so they insisted that she marry Viscount Hathaway. But she's never forgotten the man who also courted her and touched her heart, Andrew, the Earl of Sanderson. After the death of her husband, for the first time, Miranda decides that she wants to grab hold of happiness with both hands, even though she only gives herself three weeks to enjoy it. That is, if Drew will have her for that time period.
Andrew has never forgotten the woman who walked away from his heart. When she makes a very scandalous proposal, he jumps at the chance, thinking that spending some intimate time withe her will finally bring closure to their relationship.
Such silly people! All the time they spend together just brings their hearts closer. But, of course, neither one can let the other know. Miranda lies to him about why she wants to be intimate and he never tells her how she had touched his heart all those years ago and that the feelings are returning by leaps and bounds.
For a short story, there was enough story here for me. There's lots of hot times, but I could feel their emotions, too. Well done, Ms. Medeiros! I'm taking half a bookmark away for a bit of repetitive narrative.
At the end of this one, we meet the heir to the Hathaway fortune and title. He and his new bride do not seem to be very happy. Their story is number two in the series, and I hope it comes available soon!

When I sat down to read Lady Hathaway's Indecent Proposal I was excited because it seemed like the kind of romantic/erotic book that I would actually read. I love historical fiction, especially from the Regency Period in England until the Edwardian Era. I was also surprised when I researched the book, at only .99 cents, if it was as good as I hoped, it would be a steal. And it is. Suzanna Medeiros writes well, has a good grasp of the history and really pulls the reader in with this one.
Medeiros writes about a period that has been done over and over again. But she does so in such a way that is refreshing and enlightening. She looks at a period of time through the eyes of a widow and what she wants. And Miranda wants Andrew. He is sexy, he is her age and he has everything she wants in a man. Even if she can only have it for a little while.
Character Development: ★★★★★
Miranda is complex and detailed. She has lived the life a noble woman usually did, back in those days. Unable to marry for love, forced into a situation of convenience by those around her, she had the prospect to be well off. But fate/luck reared its ugly head and she was left with the plight of a woman in the time period. Add real life concerns and an undying love for a man she wished she could have married and there you go. A perfect story.
Andrew is just as interesting. Handsome, rough and tumble, and never married. Once wonders about his back story. About that time between pairings with Miranda. But his development is so good and his complex range of emotions so real, it becomes more of an afterthought.
Obviously professionally done.
The Sex: ★★★★★
When we read these stories, we want the steam. We want the romance. We want to imagine would it would be like to be in Andrew's (or Miranda's) arms. The author does that well, and her descriptions are really sexy. I loved reading these scenes and found them to be very well done.
I think .99 is way too low for such a good work and cannot wait to see more from the Hathaway Heirs Series.

Miranda was an okay heroine. While I appreciated that she was intent on having a second chance, I felt like the first chance should have been enough. Why did she give in to pressure and marry her late husband so easily? That part of her character didn't work for me and it made it hard to connect with her, which was the weak point of this novella. Though I thought she was a fine character, her actions kept me from relating to her.
On the other hand, Andrew was completely sweet and wonderful. He's still in love with Miranda, even after she married another man. And, though he had a right to be angry, he didn't become bitter and was willing to forgive. I thought he was wonderful.
The romance was both sweet and hot. With these two having been in love for so long, even if they weren't together, when they were finally reunited, it was very sweet. And, we can't forget those sparks that went off when they were finally able to be together.
The plot was nice. I was interested the entire way through. And the ending was very sweet.
Romance lovers, if you want a quick, lovely read, then you should check out Lady Hathaway's Indecent Proposal. It was a very enjoyable novella.
