Book Review with Giveaway: The Highwayman's Proposal by Vanessa Liebe

My Review

Lighthearted Enjoyable Read

What an enjoyable read. The Highwayman's Proposal packs a light hearted story, a nice intriguing plot, some twists, enjoyable chemistry between the two leads and a treacherous villain everyone loves to hate.
I was initially intrigued with the title, not being familiar with the highwayman term. The author provides a light hearted portrayal of the highwayman, and gives a good account of what a highwayman does and the threats they post during that period.
The lead characters are a joy to read. I especially enjoyed Lady Caroline, the female lead. She is not physically strong but her strong character, together with her determination to resolve her father's debt issues, are truly admirable. Despite the evil Lord Shard breathing down her neck, she is unfazed by his threats, fully focused not only on addressing her father's problems, but also bringing Lord Shard's bigger evil antics to light.
Helping her is Gabe, a person thrust into the role of a highwayman to help his family and villagers. After a chance encounter with the alluring Lady Caroline and a plea for help, he is smitten by her and resolves to help her and not let harm come her way, most definitely not from Lord Shard. Though his character is not as prominently narrated as Lady Caroline's but together, I enjoyed their great chemistry.
All in all, I enjoyed every minute of reading The Highwayman's Proposal. It was a breath of fresh air. The pace of the story is just right. I would recommend this to readers looking for a light hearted enjoyable read.

Tour Schedule: Book Unleashed
Gabriel Blakeney is a man who protects those he loves at all costs. If that means becoming a highwayman to help support the community that raised him, then that’s what he’ll do. Risking his life each night, he robs from the rich to redistribute among the poor. He does it to survive. But what he’d really like is to find a woman of his own to protect and love. Despairing of ever finding her, things change one night when he meets Lady Caroline Godwin. Here is a lady who needs protecting all right—from herself.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. And Lady Godwin is desperate. Her father has lost a fortune at cards and is bed bound after a stroke. Somehow, she must raise the money within a month or lose her home. Worse, she may be forced to marry the despicable Lord Shard—her father’s creditor—to protect the family name and pay the debt. Frantic, Lady Caroline remembers being held up a few weeks ago. She makes the audacious decision to rob the handsome highwayman. But Caroline gets far more than she bargained for.
With card sharps, traitors, and the militia to worry about, Gabriel and Caroline find danger ever present. He is determined to keep her safe throughout, even if that means a trip over his knee.
Publisher’s note: This romance contains elements of discipline, and explicitly described sexual encounters.
