Miss Winters Proposes by @francesfowlkes Review @ScandalousBooks

Miss Winters Proposes (Entangled Scandalous)
Release date: February 9, 2015
Publisher: Entangled Scandalous
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance

An unseemly proposal...

Juliet Winters has come up with a wonderfully devious plan to avoid marrying her vile cur of a cousin. First, she'll propose marriage to her handsome, reclusive neighbor, Lord Colwyn. Then, once she has both name and financial support, she'll be able to pursue her true (if rather unladylike) passion -- breeding dogs. But when Lord Colwyn rejects her proposal... Juliet must take matters into her own hands.

The last thing Benjamin Colwyn expected was for the spirited Juliet to blackmail him into marriage -- especially not by kidnapping his beloved canine companion. Yet despite his yearning for peace and isolation, he finds himself wanting to help her, if only to protect her from a marriage to a disreputable scoundrel. He certainly doesn't expect the woman who pilfered his dog to steal his heart, as well...

My Rating: 3 Roses

A sweet historical romance, Miss Winters Proposes was a lovely read. Not particularly memorable, but an enjoyable romance that I liked.

Both characters were likable. There wasn't anything special about either, but I found Juliet to be determined and Benjamin to be sweet when he wasn't trying to push people away. So, I was fine with them both.

The romance was okay. I wish there had been more of a transition from Juliet and Benjamin being strangers to being in love. As it was, we missed the whole falling in love with each other part. Also, I wish that they had actually tried to fight for each other more, rather than just being to scared to change the original terms of their marriage and running away at the first conflict. Despite these issues, though, I did think they were good together.

The plot moved quickly and I was kept interested all the way through. The story was nice and the ending was sweet.

Miss Winters Proposes was a good historical romance and I liked it. Romance lovers, you might want to check this book out.
