Today’s Release Day for A Proposal of Marriage

“The best of Ms. Bolen’s books.”—SeaNymph

“Such a great read.” Julie Barrett Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

You met her as the bookish little sister of Counterfeit Countess (Brazen Brides 1), Rebecca Peabody, and now she’s got her own love story. Sort of. It doesn’t start off as a love story, owing to the fact she is not interested in “bedchamber” activities. So she selects a widower, who at the advanced age of three-and-forty can’t possibly be interested in such things.

For reasons unknown to her, he accepts her proposal but tells her he’s not interested in a chaste marriage, that she will come to crave his kisses—and more. Read this lighthearted novel to find out about this lady’s journey to becoming his wife in every way. *

* If the story sounds familiar, these characters and a similar plot appeared in a book published for the Christian market nine years ago. It’s been completely rewritten as a secular book that’s moderately sexy.
