There was a spunky heroine, a matchmaking mother, and a sensitive but strong hero. A Proper Taming was witty and I remember laughing once aloud. It was a good book, but the many typos were distracting. The ending was a bit abrupt which, although being a drawback, was an indication that I didn't want it to end quickly. It is definitely worth a read for those who enjoy traditional Regency romances, but gosh.....those mistakes drive me nuts!
A LADY IN NEED
Orphaned and penniless, Portia Haverall is a comely young miss with few options. And an embarrassing encounter with oversized Lord Connor Dewhurst, Earl of Doncaster, further narrows her choices...to one. Forced by mishap and circumstances to accept a position as companion to the hulking earl's invalid mother, Portia moves into Connor's palatial estate--and becomes embroiled in a scheme to help the clumsy lord find a suitable bride.
A LORD INDEED
A handsome giant who neither looks nor acts noble, Connor has for far too long ignored the fine art of courting--and implores Portia to school him in the social graces. But never does the reluctant tutor dream she will transform her pupil into the prize of the ton--or that she herself will ultimately fall amorous prey to his irresistible charms.
