Leorah Langdon has really done it this time.
As if insulting the viscount at that ball wasn't bad enough. She had to fall off her horse and injure her wrist right in front of his carriage? And she had to be there when his carriage wrecked, making them both the target of all of London's rumors?
And did the carriage wreck really have to be sabotage?
The second book in the Regency Spies of London series actually has absolutely nothing to do with spies. Despite that misnomer, A Viscount's Proposal has a few steps up on its first installment, including more vibrant characters, less prose, and more Christian theme and character growth throughout the book. I was particularly intrigued by Leorah's motivation--that she's not the selfish girl all of society deems her to be. She's empty and searching for someone to love her, something she hasn't experienced all that much.
This book particularly brought society of that time period to light. Often I'd find myself shaking my head and laughing at how ridiculous their rules were. They are portrayed vividly and clearly.
There is one instance where a character uses God's name in a manner that leaves us unsure whether it was a prayer or a curse.
A Viscount's Proposal? If you're referring to a proposal to spend a couple hours reading this book, I don't think that would be so bad.
