Lord Leo Byron is bored with the aristocratic company he keeps; he needs a distraction, preferably in the form of a beautiful new female companion. So when he sets eyes on fascinating and scandalous divorcée Lady Thalia Lennox, he's determined to make her intimate acquaintance. But the spirited woman seems to have no intention of accepting his advances no matter how much he chases—or how hard he falls . . .
Once a darling of Society, Thalia Lennox now lives on its fringes. The cruel lies that gave her a notoriously wild reputation have also left her with a broken heart and led to a solemn vow to swear off men. Still, Leo Byron's bold overtures are deliciously tempting, and, for the first time, she finds herself wondering whether it just might be worth the risk to let the attractive rake into her life—and her bed . . .
Praise for The Bedding Proposal:
'A surprisingly 'grown-up' romance . . . Leo and Thalia are fully rounded-out characters, and it's a tribute to Ms Warren's writing that . . . the quiet dignity of [Thalia's] character, her intense loneliness and her longing for affection and companionship – things to which everyone is entitled but which have been denied her–shine through on every page . . . An intense and compelling read–I read it in a couple of sessions–and one I can definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for an historical romance with depth . . . The Bedding Proposalis a very strong start to Ms Warren's new series.' All About Romance (Desert Isle Keeper)
'Splendidly emotional and deliciously sensual, The Bedding Proposal is the first novel in the new The Rakes of Cavendish trilogy by Tracy Anne Warren. She has penned another imaginative and masterfully written romantic story! . . . Ms. Warren's fans will devour this marvelous, powerful and sensual treat! Consummate storyteller Ms. Warren delivers another story that bubbles over with true love's magic. Absolutely excellent! I wept towards the end as one powerful scene after another touched my heart. The Bedding Proposal is wickedly witty, brilliantly plotted and delectably sexy. Another signature goodie!' Romance Junkies
'Lovely. Simply lovely. The Bedding Proposal swept me away and had me totally smitten . . . Oh these two. [Leo and Thalia are] everything I love in a hero and heroine. I could easily see being friends with either of them . . . He's sexy and thoughtful and rather forceful without being domineering . . . She's got a backbone of steel and tremendous character and determination. She lost everything when her husband divorced and ruined her name years earlier . . . But she never quit, built her life back up and was determined to take care of herself no matter what. I adored her and my heart broke for everything she'd been through. They were really wonderful together. He saw her and she really saw him. They just had that lovely connection where they . . . clicked . . . I love when authors do something a little different. And everything about The Bedding Proposal was exactly that and beautifully done.' Herding Cats & Burning Soup
