Lord Leo Byron is bored with the aristocratic company he keeps; he needs a distraction, preferably in the form of a beautiful new female companion. So when he sets eyes on fascinating and scandalous divorcee Lady Thalia Lennox, he's determined to make her intimate acquaintance. But the spirited woman seems to have no intention of accepting his advances no matter how much he chases-or how hard he falls . . . Once a darling of Society, Thalia Lennox now lives on its fringes. The cruel lies that gave her a notoriously wild reputation have also left her with a broken heart and led to a solemn vow to swear off men. Still, Leo Byron's bold overtures are deliciously tempting, and, for the first time, she finds herself wondering whether it just might be worth the risk to let the attractive rake into her life-and her bed . . . Praise forThe Bedding Proposal- 'A surprisingly 'grown-up' romance . . . Leo and Thalia are fully rounded-out characters, and it's a tribute to Ms Warren's writing that . . . the quiet dignity of Thalia's character, her intense loneliness and her longing for affection and companionship - things to which everyone is entitled but which have been denied her-shine through on every page . . . An intense and compelling read-I read it in a couple of sessions-and one I can definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for an historical romance with depth . . .The Bedding Proposalis a very strong start to Ms Warren's new series.'

Summary
Lord Leo Byron, is bored lately with society and needs something or...someone to liven up his life. And then he meets Lady Thalia Lennox a woman that refuses his interests at every turn. But her refusal to give him the time of day only intrigues him even more and loves a good chase of his "prey". Thalia has had enough of being embarrassed and mocked and ridiculed and the last thing she wants to do is give another man a reason to humiliate her. Thalia married a man she didn't truly care for but did so out of duty. But her husband treated her awfully through their marriage and trapped her in a situation where she now bears the brunt of being a divorced wife. Just about everyone she ever knew and loved turned their backs on her except for a couple of friends. She doesn't trust Leo further than she throw him. She realizes there may be more Leo than she first assumed. But her ex-husband made sure she could never find the happiness she and Leo deserves.
The Hero
Leo Bryon, is part of a big family and is also a "twin". Leo hides behind th facade of being charming and easy going and full of laughter to hide his true intelligence. With all of his siblings highly gifted in the brain department, Leo wanted to be able to stand out from the 'crowd'. Leo isn't as superficial as he makes himself out to be. He is very close to his twin and they tend to get into all sorts of trouble together. Leo was such a wonderful hero especially once his feelings for Thalia turned deeper than physical desire. I truly couldn't get enough of seeing how devoted he was to Thalia.
We live wild lives until we find the right woman, once we do, we hold fast and never let go
The Heroine
Thalia is forced to live away from the Ton, since the actions of her ex-husband forced her into exile. Thalia did no wrong, but her ex-husband is a very vindictive and bitter man and takes it out on her at every turn. Thalia despite what she has lost, has managed to maintain a manageable living. Thalia has such a strong and resilient spirit. I loved her inner strength and fortitude to keep going strong even when others were always batting her down. I had so much admiration for Thalia, and love the way she grows in this story and the way we see how feisty she can be and seeing how after all she suffers, she still remains stronger than ever.
Plot and Story Line
The Bedding Proposal was fun and entertaining but also a bitter sweet read for me. Reading about situations like what Thalia goes through can be really hard to read at times. It's one of the draw backs of reading Regency Era romances. Mostly because it can be difficult to read about what women had to go through especially when it came to rights and privileges they had which was very few. But what was also simply wonderful about this story too was seeing the strength of women especially back then. They had very few rights, but in this book especially we see how sometimes that only forges stronger and more resilient personalities in women. And Thalia is one of those women that didn't break she was only made stronger. And I honestly loved seeing the slow changes in her as she experiences love for the first time with Leo. Leo, at first, views Thalia as a "prize". But you soon realize that he is drawn to her for other reasons.
I do want to be her friend, he realized. I want to discover everything there is to know about the beautiful, mysterious woman who is Lady Thalia Lennox.
And once he falls for her, he like any rake, falls hard and doesn't give up on her. I love the way he treats her, how much he is willing to do to give her a measure of peace and happiness that he knows she deserves. And the sweet devotion he has to her is so heart melting it might make you cry from it. Their romance is tender and poignant at times especially in the later half of the story. In the first half we see their quick-witted and fun bantering which is highly entertaining. But once they truly are honest with each other, that is where their relationship really soars. I just can't wait for what Warren does next in this series.
The Cover
Its alright, I really like the way his shirt is part way open and the male model is exactly how you would picture Leo to look like too!!
Overall View
The Bedding Proposal has a witty and lighthearted fun beginning that develops into a heart-aching romance that tugs at your emotions and will utterly draw you in! A CAPTIVATING ROMANCE!
"I'll stay for as long as you want me."
"That means forever, you realize? Because I'll always want you. I love you." ( )

Years ago, the author wrote a charming quartet of books, The Wallflower series, and reader who are hoping for more of the same will be disappointed. Ms Warren seems to have lost the ability to plot cleanly: This is a Regency Romance in which the Lady Thalia is a divorcee shunned by the ton; and the Lord Leo is a younger son intent on pursuing her. There is a lot of emotional baggage (so many issues including, but not limited to age differences and domestic violence) and the sex scenes are sub par even for a softer romance. ( )

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A young rake gets more than he bargained for when he tries to seduce an ostracized divorcee in this wonderful and heartwarming historical romance.

Opening Sentence: “This party is duller than a Sunday sermon,” Lord Leopold Byron complained, with a sigh.

The Review:

Six years ago, Thalia became a pariah among the members of the Ton. Her husband, Lord Kemp, put her through a messy divorce, claiming she was unfaithful. No one cared whether the accusation was true or not; they immediately sided with Lord Kemp. For the past six years, Thalia has had to deal with the stares, the rejection, and the rumors, but her pride has always helped her stay strong.

Lord Leopold Byron became infatuated with Lady Thalia the minute he set eyes on her. He is determined to begin an affair with her, and her reputation leaves no doubt in his mind that it should be easy to get her in his bed. No one is more surprised than he when it doesn’t prove that simple. The more time he spends with her though, the more he can’t get her out of his mind. Will Thalia ever give in to his advances, or will he have to admit defeat?

Historical romance was the very first genre I fell in love with. Over the years, I’ve drifted away from it, mainly because it’s hard for me to identify with an 18-year-old heroine, which is often what you find in historical romance. So, imagine my delight when I began this book and realized the heroine was in her early thirties. My delight increased as I fell in love with the hero as well, despite his slight cockiness at the beginning of the book. I had such a hard time putting the book down that I finished it in a day. Honestly, the only negative thing I can say is there is one event towards the end of the book that felt a bit too convenient but really, at that point, I didn’t care. I was too in love with the story to let that one event affect my enjoyment.

Chemistry is really important in a romance novel, and there is plenty of it between Thalia and Leo. Even when they’re mainly bickering at the beginning of the book, it’s obvious that there’s something there. As the sparks continued to fly, I often had a smile on my face as I read and found myself eagerly anticipating when they would finally get together. Once they do get together, the story somehow gets even better as you watch the feelings deepen between them. I really can’t gush enough about how much I loved the interactions between the main couple.

All in all, this was a great introduction to the work of Tracy Anne Warren for me. I went into the book a little hesitant, but wound up loving this book more than any other that I’ve read in recent memory. I’ll definitely be looking into more of Warren’s work!

Notable Scene:

Thalia’s jaw tightened. What was he doing bidding on her kitten trinket box? What possible use could he have for such a thing? Then it occurred to her. Was this his revenge for the other night? For her refusal of his overtures and the champagne she’d tossed in his face?

So much for wanting to start over.

“Nineteen,” she said, the word hard and precise.

He barely waited for the auctioneer to confirm her bid before he spoke. “Twenty-five.”

A little ripple of reaction went through the crowd, all eyes affixed to her and Lord Leopold.

Silently, she cursed.

Twenty-five? More than she wanted to pay. More than she could afford, if truth be known, since twenty pounds had been her top bid from the start. Yet it galled her, the idea of giving in to him, of letting him take something that belonged to her by rights and that had been stolen from her once already.

“Twenty-five going once, going twice–“

Was she really going to let him have her box?

“Thirty,” she said, throwing aside the last of her common sense.

Renewed murmurs echoed. Then all was silent as everyone settled down, waiting for the next bid. Even the auctioneer paused for an extra moment before diving back into the action.

“Do we have more than thirty, my lord?” Christie’s man asked. “Thirty-one? Will you go to thirty-one?”

And Lord Leopold’s eyes met Thalia’s once more, his own fierce and enigmatic as if the two of them were engaged in a battle that went far beyond the present moment.

She shivered, reading the barely concealed desire in his eyes. He wanted her, of that she had no doubt. And she sensed that he always got what he wanted, whether it be a porcelain trinket box or a woman who had taken his fancy.

“Fifty,” he said in a deep, smooth voice.

FTC Advisory: Penguin/Signet provided me with a copy of The Bedding Proposal. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )
