Lady Edwina Bollash is a talented linguist, but she may have taken on more than she can handle when she accepts the challenge of transforming handsome commoner Mick Tremore into a gentleman. She only has six weeks to accomplish the daunting task, but Mick proves to be a quick study. Unfortunately for Edwina, Mick is also utterly irresistible. Edwina soon finds herself loving everything about the brash charmer whose approach to life is so less restrictive than her own. But she's a lady and he's a commoner--or is he? And Lady Edwina can't possibly have a future with this handsome, impossible man--or can she?
The classic Pygmalion tale takes on a new twist in Ivory's version with a plot that springs some surprises on the reader. With a villain one loves to hate, a hero and heroine that are so much fun to watch spar and spark, and a cast of secondary characters that add texture, The Proposition is pure delight. Don't miss the fun. --Lois Faye Dyer
