Read & Download The Proposition 104 Oned up the perfect English lady but there is unleashed passion existing just below her placid facade not to mention a great pair of legs And as she prepares him to take his place in society Mick prepares Edwina to take her place in his heartand in his bed. Well this story is simply fantastic It uickly skyrocketed to the top ten of my all time favorite romance novelsThis is reverse My Fair Lady story or Pygmalian of Greek mythology and the play by George Bernard Shaw It also has the feeling of that movie with Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd Trading Places because it s all based on a bet by two rich men Can a nobody be a somebody just by changing his speech patterns and clothing These two rich gentlemen make a bet to discover if it s possible with Mick as the mark and Winnie as his teacherMick is a ratcatcher from Cornwall And Winnie is a spinster with a fascination for regional speech patterns She is a speech specialist and makes her living training the country out of young girls hoping to come out in society She also trains them in the niceties and customs of the bon ton So Winnie is the perfect person to train ratcatcher Mick out of his rough waysOf course romance ensues I felt romantic tinglies all through the reading of this novel Just one thing after another tickled me through and through Judith Ivory has a way about writing that is lyrical Sometimes her writing style leaves me detached from the story and the characters Not this time This is a type of style that I like to call in my own head close writing It s close because the reader is privy to close observation of the characters Little facial expressions are noticed Nuances of observation that bring us into the interaction between hh that leave me breathless It s wonderful Laura Kinsale Sherry Thomas Meredith Duran Joanna Bourne sometimes Julia uinn and Eloisa Jamesall write in this way It s my personal thrill It s what I m looking for EVERY TIME I pick up another historical romance or just a romance novel in generalTHE ENDING The story ended well and was satisfyingbut I must say I m disappointed I was afraid the story would end in some way similar to how it ended and I just really didn t want it to I wanted something else Oh well I still love this book

Read & Download The Proposition 104 Nguist is sure she can rise to the task she isn't at all certain she won't swoon under his frankly sensuous gaze before her job is doneMick has lived outside of London society long enough to know that appearances can be deceiving Edwina might look all butt. This book is unusual to say the least but not in a bad wayWhen I read the scene at the tearoom where Mick and Winnie first met each other I thought I was in the middle of a slapstick or a cartoon ish farce and braced myself to read that kind of comedy Then Mick and Winnie started singing their lines in the garden and I thought okay it was a musical Finally when Mick showed Winnie how he caught rats it was like watching an Animal Planet show At that point I decided to relax and simply enjoy the book with all its uirky anticsThis book is full of overlong descriptions and insights into Mick s and Winnie s minds and that was distracting At times I had to go back a few pages to remember how the scene started and what they were talking about BUT strangely enough that didn t bothered much because I was in the right mood for a slower paced readI really liked Mick one of the most unusual hero I ve ever met He was full of life funny loving and not one bit tortured I thought Winnie was kind of snotty and cold at first but she grew on me and I ended up liking her too And when they finally made love wow it was so good to see them having fun with it Winnie wasn t overly sensitive about it which I found totally believable considering how old she was and what her role in society was I mean she was a Lady by birth but she wasn t living like one and she didn t have any false hopes about itThe HEA was a bit over the top everything was tidily wrapped with a pink bow but I liked it It was in tune with the overall feeling of the book a happy fairy tale with likeable charactersThis was my first book by Judith Ivory but I can already agree with readers that say she s an acuired taste Her writing isn t like any other author I ve read It worked for me in this book and I hope it works in her other books too
