Blog Tour, Rachel's Review: Her Wicked Proposal by Lauren Smith

Once the ton’s darling, sudden blindness has left Cedric a reclusive shell of a man. Until he’s offered the chance to recapture a small part of his old life when the woman he’s secretly desired for years asks him to propose to her.


Who doesn’t love a naughty rogue? Third in the fan favorite historical romance, League of Rogues series, by Lauren Smith, you do not want to miss HER WICKED PROPOSAL!

He doesn’t need his eyes to uncover her true beauty. 

Cedric, Viscount Sheridan, is cursed. Once the ton’s golden boy, the loss of his sight has left him a reclusive shell of man. His days of womanizing, horse racing and pistol shooting lost forever.

Offered the chance to recapture a small part of his old life, he can’t refuse—even if it means accepting the shocking proposal of the infamous ice maiden, Anne Chessley.

Still reeling from her father’s death, Anne’s deepest wish is to avoid the hordes of fortune hunters who will soon be beating down her door. Proposing marriage to Cedric is an act of desperation, his unexpected acceptance a strange and wonderful dream. 

His only stipulation: she must respond passionately and wantonly in his bed. Her agreement barely crosses her lips before he begins a sensual assault on the icy walls bitter secrets have built around her heart. 

Yet even as they catch a glimpse of true happiness, betrayal is poised to sweep them away on opposing tides of danger. 

Warning:  Contains an outwardly aloof heroine with a secretly tender heart, a once-notorious rake who isn’t quite as rusty at seduction as he feared, and a band of rogues who join together to make sure happily-ever-afters do come true.

Rachel's Review~
I love Lauren Smith's writing; be it sexy bdsm, stepbrother taboo or historical romance.  She always writes a good story, and I've yet to be disappointed.  Her Wicked Proposal is book 3 in a series that I've not read, but I had no real problem picking this book up and enjoying just the same.  While I didn't know all the characters, I caught the drift quick enough.  And Cedric did a wonderful job of explaining to Anne at some point in the story how it's all come about.
Lauren's characters are wonderful.  The story is well written.  I've read a LOT.  Some historical, mostly not, and while this story isn't explicit in any way, it is wonderfully erotic.
Cedric is blind and Anne is most definitely in love.
~Cedric began to lead her, as though he knew the whereabouts of the room's furniture by heart. He stopped in front of the settee and turned her to face away from him.
"It is dark, isn't it?" he asked. His tone was soft, low and dangerously seductive.
Anne swallowed before replying, "Yes, quite dark."
"Good. I want you to close your eyes. I'm going to make love to you and I want you to feel it as I do, with sensations and sounds, but no sight."
Lauren's writing makes it so easy to picture what's happening.  It so easily flows from paper to imagination.
Loved this one, and now I'm gonna have to grab the series...
