Garrett Burke and Ivy Wentworth used to
be lovers. Two years ago, Garrett left Ivy sleeping and
slipped away in search of finding some missing diamonds.
Garrett planned on finishing this one last assignment and
then returning to Ivy in order to convince her to spend the
rest of her life with him. When Garrett returned, Ivy was
not to be found.
Ivy once loved Garrett but two years is
a long time to think of his leaving her to go off without a
word. Arriving at the destination of her latest errand, Ivy
never thought she would be face to face with Garrett again.
Now they must join forces to once again search for the
missing Martello diamonds. Ivy is willing to give up
everything for Garrett, everything except her heart that is.
I have said more than once that historical romances are my
favorite genres to read. Historical romances such as
A Notorious Proposal are ambrosia to my mind. Each
character is described to the fullest and the setting and
scenes were vividly portrayed. Sexual tension was afoot and
I loved watching the dance between Garrett and Ivy. Enemies
because of circumstance, lovers because they couldn’t not
be, I loved every aspect of their love story. Adele
Ashworth has penned a stunning portrayal of love and
absolution. A Notorious Proposition is all I
wanted it to be and more.
