A false proposal, a fake engagement – true love?


London 1812


War hero Adam Grey returns home with a burning ambition to run for Parliament. But he needs the support of the local baronet, who controls the seat. Adam’s plans are thwarted by his dissolute father, who has promised him to the baronet’s daughter in return for forgiveness of his debts. Adam wants nothing to do with marriage or his father’s problems, so he fakes an engagement to Cass Linford—his best friend’s sister.


Cass has been through hell since she last saw Adam. Her betrothed committed suicide, forcing her to withdraw from London society. Heartbroken, she’s given up on marriage. So when Adam suggests a temporary engagement, she agrees. He needs help with his campaign, and Cass can’t resist his charm or the chance to be involved in politics. It all seems so easy, until she finds herself falling in love with her fake fiancé.

I really enjoyed this story. Although I feel obligated to tell my readers that this story DOES include scenes of a sexual nature that happen before marriage (I know this is a turn off for some readers).

About the author

Pamela Mingle

Pamela Mingle is a former teacher and librarian who was fortunate enough to choose writing as a third career. Or maybe it chose her. :) She loves to create romantic tales that play out against historical events and always includes humor in her books. Pam and her husband enjoy walking in the British Isles--even though she's done her share of whining on the longer days. The walking trips have been an ideal way to discover new settings for her books. Pam's newest book, A LADY'S DECEPTION, releases in August, 2017. Along with A FALSE PROPOSAL, it is part of the Haslemere Men series with Entangled Publishing. Readers can find Pam’s previous books on Goodreads and Amazon.
