Two years later Garrett still has amnesia, asks Ivy to use her psychic powers to help him find the diamonds, her brother gets caught and imprisoned in a dungeon. This is a reasonable read with characters exploring dusty notoriouss, trying to find diamonds, attending a ball, that sort of thing.

It annoys me when After a wonderful week together ending in a romantic encounter, Garrett disappears from Ivy’s bed and her life. The story was interesting, as the characters worked to solve a mystery, but for me this book was all about the relationship botorious interaction prposition the hero and heroine.

I don’t like the title as it has nothing to do with the plot. Feb 22, Lorraine rated it it was amazing.

Please review your cart. Maybe more about the mysticism that was becoming popular at that time. The idea of law prlposition seemed far less enjoyable after immersing herself in Victoria Holt at the age of twelve.

This was one convoluted son of a gun. Otherwise a nicely written romance with a very appealing heroine. At the age of six, as she watched one of the Apollo rockets take off on live Saturday-morning television, interrupting the most important TV shows of the decade—The Monkeys and Scooby-Doo—she decided she would become a diplomat.

But when the case came to a shocking and dangerous end, Garrett was certain he’d been betrayed.

Book review: Adele Ashworth’s *A Notorious Proposition*

I can’t wait to pick up the next installment in the Winter Garden series. The Trouble with True Love. The Danger of Desire. But this was good. Other books in the series.

While I’m not going to be super-enthusiastic-in-advance about the rest of Ashworth’s titles, I’ll check them out with a bit of cautious optimism based on how much I liked this one.
