“A Scandalous Proposition” by Wendy Soliman

This was a good, although racy, book.  Florentina Grantley comes upon Major Adam Fitzroy by accident in an inn, when she is trying to escape the man chasing her.  She doesn’t realize who he is until he introduces himself (which is after she has already given him a false name).  He takes her to her destination and goes on his way.

However, their paths cross again in a little while when Florentina arrives at the brothel where Adam was headed.  He has known its owner since he was a young man, and has been going their not only for companionship, but for friendship.  He is shocked to see Florentina there and makes some assumptions about why she is there.  She allows him his misconceptions.  They argue and part company.

However, their paths cross again the next day when Adam arrives at the dower house where his mother lives.  He has heard lots of good things about his mother’s companion Tina.  When his mother introduces her, it’s Florentina.  Adam is suspicious of her even more now and seeks to gain some kind of control over her.

All of this is set against the background of a betrayal by the woman Adam thought he was going to marry before he went off to war (messy), a human smuggling ring (very messy), and misunderstandings galore.   I liked the story, and loved the character of Adam’s mom.  She was delightful!  Most of the characters seemed pretty flat, but the story moved very quickly.  I wanted to know what was going to happen next, especially with Florentina.
