Who would have thought a man could tire of being fawned over and flirted with? Ever since Cooper Townsend returned from France as a hero with a new title, he has been relentlessly pursued by every marriageable miss in London. Perhaps that's why the unconventional Miss Daniella Foster is so appealing. She doesn't simper or flatter. She only wants him to help unmask her sister's blackmailer, and Coop has never been so intrigued…
Let every other woman in London fight over His Lordship's romantic attentions. Marriage is the last thing on Dany's mind…at least until she samples his illicit kisses. Now, as a mutual enemy races to ruin Coop's reputation and Dany's family name, an engagement of convenience will spark an unlikely passion that might save them both.

I have a guilty secret. I love to read historical romances but only a few at a time as they are like a rich, dark chocolate which is better to savor. And one of my favorite authors is Kasey Michaels because all of her heroines are true 'originals'.
And Dany is no exception. She has to be one of my favorite heroines in that she is extremely sharp, witty and fearless. Poor Coop never stood a chance. Watching their courtship as they are trying to discover a blackmailer was quite amusing with lots of witty dialogue and narrow escapes.
I also enjoy running into Rigby and Darby, Coop's friends. They are all so different but all wonderful and honorable men that stand by their friends. A women couldn't go wrong with these guys. I am especially looking forward to the next book which will feature my favorite, Darby.
I highly recommend A SCANDALOUS PROPOSAL to any of my readers who enjoy a romping historical romance. This book has it all; a spunky heroine, a dreamy hero and a dastardly villain out to ruin them.
