The award-winning author of The Reunion continues her dazzling new series with a novel of one woman’s fall from saint to sinner . . .
Lucy Betancourt’s future looks bleak. The daughter of an ailing vicar in a village with no eligible bachelors, her only hope is to find employment as a governess or companion. As she helps her childhood friend, the new Duchess of Worley, through her pregnancy, the ever-practical Lucy makes her plans. But life—in the way of the dashing Bex Brantwood—has something else in store for Lucy…
Upon meeting Bex, the duke’s cousin, Lucy offers herself up to him. But Bex is no family man looking for a governess. And Lucy is not exactly mistress material. Still, the misunderstanding ends in a kiss neither can
forget . . .
Bex finds the proper vicar’s daughter and her most improper proposal endlessly amusing—and attractive. But, saddled with debt, he’s in no position to keep a woman, much less marry one, which is what a woman like Lucy deserves. Little does he know that even with her reputation at stake, Lucy will take the biggest gamble of her life by following her heart—straight into his arms . . .
This is the 2nd book by Sara Portman in her Brides of Boswell series and it was as good as the first! This is the story of two different people brought together by circumstances, each looking for their place in life and survival. Full of great dialogue and humor I could not put it down until o turned the last page!’
A painful read
What a pain to get through. This book was as exciting as watching grass grow. The characters were all dead bores, too much inner monologue and too many scenes that had thousands of problems. I dreaded reading this book, don’t waste your time.
Super Read by Sara Portman!!
Super Read Sara Portman! The Offer is the 2nd book in the Brides Of Beadwell series. It started out a tad slow but when it picked up, it went flying and I could not put this book down. Like any good romance novel that I read, I expect the novel to be good and steamy and Sara did not disappoint! Her characters came alive and her descriptions were to the point. This book has it all, humor, lies, deception, saints, sinners, rogue, gambling, pregnancy, deceit, investments, new friends, old friends, scandal, penniless, controlling, hatred, secrets and of course love. I highly recommend this book. So travel back in time to 1818 London, with Mr. Bextley Branton and Miss Lucy Betancourt.
