A MOST INDECENT PROPOSAL
Annabelle Green needs a husband-and quickly. To inherit the only home she's ever known, she must be married by her twenty-fifth birthday. But finding a suitor has been next to impossible after a reckless rogue named Quinton Carlisle seduced her into a scandalous midnight tryst. Her reputation in ruins, Belle now needs a rather large favor. And she knows just who to turn to . . .
Quinn can hardly believe that the shy bookish girl he teased as a child has grown into such a brazen beauty. The very idea of marrying Belle to right the wrongs of his past is downright shocking . . . and deliciously tempting. Too bad marriage, convenient or otherwise, is the last thing Quinn wants. He'll help Belle find a husband and be on his way. But if he can't control his attraction to the bride-to-be, this marriage could go up in flames-of wicked desire.

Annabelle Green was taken in by the Ainsley’s as a young girl. She’s spent her entire life since at Castle Glenarvon. If she marries by her twenty-fifth birthday, she will inherit her home and run it in the way she has for years. The problem is her reputation is less than pristine and she has little time to find a suitable groom.
This is where Lady Ainsley’s nephews, Robert and Quinn Carlisle, come in to help in the search. Lady Ainsley has called upon her dear nephews before Quinn sets sail for a new life with land waiting for him in America. Quinn’s future is set in stone, yet he can’t help the feelings of lusty desire for the lovely Miss Green whom he’d stole a kiss from so many years ago. Transformed into a great beauty, Quinn is pulled into Belle’s web, but fights tooth and nail to be freed so he can meet his destiny in America.
After the first novel in the series, If the Duke Demands, I fully expected to read Robert’s story next. Harrington surprised and delighted me with turning to Quinn for the next chapter in the Carlisle saga. Although Quinn might’ve been deemed as an unrepentant rake in the first novel, Harrington brings out his true love for his family and the responsibilities he believes he is ready to undertake. Of course, Belle throws a wrench in all of his plans. Deemed close enough relatives, Lady Ainsley has Quinn and Robert step in to help find a suitable groom before it is too late. The owner of the neighboring estate, Sir Harold Bletchley, seems to be the front runner, but Belle is adamant against the match and Quinn quickly finds out Bletchley’s ulterior motives. Jealousy runs rampant over Quinn’s soul as each suitor is crossed off the list. If only he could figure out a way to become Belle’s groom, life would be simpler.
Harrington once again throws us into a whirlwind adventure of the heart as Quinn and Belle struggle with their feelings and their obligations. Another five star read for the Carlisles!
