The drama of London’s Little Season continues in USA Today bestselling author Kasey Michaels’s vibrant new series featuring three courageous war heroes surrendering at last to love…
Who would have thought a man could tire of being fawned over and flirted with? Ever since Cooper Townsend returned from France as a hero with a new title, he has been relentlessly pursued by every marriageable miss in London. Perhaps that’s why the unconventional Miss Daniella Foster is so appealing. She doesn’t simper or flatter. She only wants him to help unmask her sister’s blackmailer, and Coop has never been so intrigued…
Let every other woman in London fight over His Lordship’s romantic attentions. Marriage is the last thing on Dany’s mind…at least until she samples his illicit kisses. Now, as a mutual enemy races to ruin Coop’s reputation and Dany’s family name, an engagement of convenience will spark an unlikely passion that might save them both.

FTC Disclaimer: I received an ARC from the publisher via TLC Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. Opinions expressed are mine.
Charming, suspenseful, riotous, mysterious, romantic, and more! All these terms describe Kasey Michaels’ A Scandalous Proposal.
This is my first read of one of Michaels’ books. Although it is a part of The Little Season Series, it stands on its own very well.
I can’t remember enjoying a historical novel so much. The characters are joyfully crafted, each having his or her own peculiarities or flaws. The back story is woven in seamlessly so that the reader knows how Cooper Townsend came to be a hero and why all the women are after him.
The premise is quite engaging and witty with Danielle Foster literally walking into Cooper Townsend, a meeting which may seem a bit contrived. From there, everything that happens between these two is filled with chatter, laughter, and sometimes angst. Nonstop there is something happening. Never boring!
Diane wants Cooper to help hunt down her sister’s blackmailer and Cooper’s soon-to-be blackmailer. Some risk, some danger populates the pages and still the romance shines through.
In the end, this relationship turns out to be made in heaven for Cooper and Diane. Thought from different social statuses, they each help the other overcome any stumbling blocks to their future together. Diane is definitely not cut from a mold. She is her own woman during a time period when being so was unthinkable.
If you’re looking for a book to make you laugh incessantly while weaving in a thread of suspense and romance, A Scandalous Proposal is the book for you. Pick up a copy soon as the third in the series is coming out in the near future, and go ahead and get the first in the series so you know how everything unfolded before.

A highly praised nonfiction book, written as Kathryn Seidick, “…OR YOU CAN LET HIM GO,” details the story of Kasey and her family during the time of her eldest son’s first kidney transplant.
Kasey has written Regency romances, Regency historicals, category books including novellas and continuities and a few series “launch” books, and single title contemporaries. She has coped with time travel, ghosts, trilogies, the dark side, the very light side, and just about everything in between. Hers is also the twisted mind behind her ongoing Maggie Kelly mystery series starring a former romance writer turned historical mystery writer whose gorgeous hunk of a fictional hero shows up, live and in color, in her Manhattan living room – to melt her knees, to help her solve murders, and to leave the top off her toothpaste. And, says Kasey, she’s just getting started!
