Lady Hathaway's Indecent Proposal (Hathaway Heirs, #1)
Release Date: July 15, 2013
Publisher: Self
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: Hathaway Heirs #1

Twelve years have passed since Miranda Hathaway ended her courtship with Andrew Osborne and married the older, but much wealthier, Viscount Hathaway. It is only one week after her husband’s death and Miranda cannot ignore the temptation to have a taste of what she threw away all those years ago when she followed her parents’ wishes. But to entice the man she never stopped loving, she will have to act quickly.

Now the Earl of Sanderson, Andrew is no longer the same man who once believed in love. When Miranda asks him to help her conceive a child—one whom she means to pass off as the next Hathaway heir—he sees her deceit as proof that she is not the same woman he once knew. However, he cannot ignore the temptation to finally have her in his bed.

Miranda knows she is infertile, but her deception gives her three weeks with Andrew. He plans to use that time to finally consign Miranda Hathaway to the past, while she hopes to build memories that will last her a lifetime.

My Rating: 4 Roses

A nice, quick, and enjoyable read. Lady Hathaway's Indecent Proposal was a hot and sweet romance about second chance love.

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.
