Improper Proposals by Juliana Ross

Improper Proposals (Improper, #3)
Release date: March 24, 2014
Publisher: Carina Press
Genre: Erotic/Historical (Victorian) Romance
Series: Improper #3

Berkshire, 1870

Newly widowed, Caroline Boothroyd passes her days writing a guide for young wives daunted by their housewifely duties. She takes it to publisher Thomas Cathcart-Ross, who makes the outrageous suggestion that Caroline should instead tackle the subject of marital relations—and, even more shocking, that she should tell women that sex with their husbands can be pleasurable and not a shameful necessity.

Tom's sisters were sent into marriage naive and unworldly. He's willing to risk scandal to help women like them, and Caroline's writing talent provides the means. Remembering her own newlywed nerves, she agrees, despite fears for her reputation.

As Caroline thinks back on her own sexual awakening, she cannot help imagining a sensual future with her compelling publisher. Tom makes her want to write a second chapter of her sexual life. But lust could lead to love, and Caroline never wishes to feel heartbreak again.

My Rating: 5 Roses

Very sensuous and super sweet, Improper Proposals was a lovely historical romance read. I really liked this novella. It was sweet, hot, and an enjoyable read.

Both characters were lovely. Caroline was a likable, though I wanted to shake some sense into her when she almost let Tom go out of fear. But, I still liked her just fine. Tom was very sweet and determined when he set his mind to something. He was adorable and I really liked him.

The romance was super hot. The bedroom scenes were scorching, yet tastefully done. Get ready to fan your face, because the heat level here was off the charts. And, they were also rather sweet together. I liked how their relationship helped Caroline move on from her first husband's death. I thought they were a lovely couple.

The plot went by quickly and I was kept interested the entire way through. I really liked the story and the ending was perfect.

Improper Proposals was a fantastic historical/erotic romance. I really enjoyed reading this steamy novella. It was hot, sweet, and romantic. Romance lovers, if you're looking for a quick, hot read, then you don't want to miss this.
