Description
The Proposal by Mary Balogh
Gwendoline, Lady Muir, has seen her share of tragedy, especially since a freak accident took her husband much too soon. Content in a quiet life with friends and family, the young widow has no desire to marry again. But when Hugo, Lord Trentham, scoops her up in his arms after a fall, she feels a sensation that both shocks and emboldens her.

Hugo never intends to kiss Lady Muir, and frankly, he judges her to be a spoiled, frivolous -- if beautiful -- aristocrat. He is a gentleman in name only: a soldier whose bravery earned him a title; a merchant's son who inherited his wealth. He is happiest when working the land, but duty and title now demand that he finds a wife. He doesn't wish to court Lady Muir, nor have any role in the society games her kind thrives upon. Yet Hugo has never craved a woman more; Gwen's guileless manner, infectious laugh, and lovely face have ruined him for any other woman. He wants her, but will she have him?

The hard, dour ex-military officer who so gently carried Gwen to safety is a man who needs a lesson in winning a woman's heart. Despite her cautious nature, Gwen cannot ignore the attraction. As their two vastly different worlds come together, both will be challenged in unforeseen ways. But through courtship and seduction, Gwen soon finds that with each kiss, and with every caress, she cannot resist Hugo's devotion, his desire, his love, and the promise of forever.

I read The Proposal by Mary Balogh and it was ok. I have enjoyed her older books like Deceived, Truly etc, and which were excellent. The characters in this story seemed flat and wishy washy to me. Hugo, Lord Trentham didn't show much male arrogance or intentions to me. Gwen, Lady Muir was determined not to have anything with Hugo because of the class system. Gwen's feelings seemed artificial. I hope Ms Balogh forgives me because I really didn't like this book. This is not a keeper and I hope her next one is.
