Book review: Joan Smith – An Infamous Proposal

Posted by HelenEdith on July 12, 2007

This is the second Regency Romance by Joan Smith that I have borrowed from the library in recent months.

Emma, young and widowed and just at the end of her mourning period proposes to her neighbour Lord Hansard. She thinks that he’ll make her a biddable husband, and will bring to an end her father’s efforts to impose an unwanted aunt on her as a chaperone.

Lord Hansard isn’t as overcome by the proposal as Emma had hoped, and in fact rejects it out of hand.

Emma then embarks on some husband hunting sponsored by Lord Hansard, who feels somewhat responsible for Emma. However, each candidate of Emma’s hand turns up lacking on some way or other.

As anticipated in this type of book, we get our happy ending.
