A Bittersweet Proposal


I was pleased to see this review of A Bittersweet Proposal, which was forwarded to me by my publishers, Robert Hale.

Harriet Aston's family are poor, and need all the help they can get to make their orchard a success. But since the death of the old Earl of Broadstairs they are worried that the present Earl, the cold hearted Marcus Rothwell, may take their home from them. Marcus is on the prowl for a wife, and while visiting the Astons ends up spending the night with Harriet. Now she is compromised he offers marriage - but she only wants a man who loves her, and whom she loves in return.

Marcus is a tough nut to crack, and a chilly protagonist whose heart is going to need a lot of melting. Hariet makes a competent and engaging heroine, and there are various other things going on as well as romance. The beadle's attentions towards Mrs Aston for example, the sinister steward, a mysterious bequest and murderous attacks on Harriet all add up to an entertaining and nicely balanced romantic tale.

This review was posted by Rachel A Hyde and I'd like to take a look at the site where it was published in order to see what other books are being reviewed. Only problem is, Hale haven't told me where they came across this particular review. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
