In Margaret Evans Porter's The Proposal
, widow Sophie Pinnock is bright, talented, and not at all interested in an affair. But Lord Bevington needs the beautiful Sophie for more than her gardening skills. The loss of her first husband was a devastating blow to Sophie, and although the difficult, handsome Lord Bevington has jolted her dormant emotions back to life, she's not at all sure she wants what he has to offer.
From Library Journal
Widowed but determined to make a life for herself as a landscape architect, Sophie Pinnock takes on the job of redesigning the highly unsettling Lord Bevington's extensive gardens and finds herself involved in more than just redoing his castle grounds. A spritely, determined heroine and assorted secondary characters?both charming and unsavory?stand out in this late Georgian romance that boasts a rather complex plot, a relaxed pace, and alludes to some of the darker aspects of the period. An experienced Regency writer (Dangerous Diversions, Signet, 1994), this is Porter's First non-Regency historical. Porter lives in Epson, New Hampshire.
