A PROPOSAL FROM A SCOUNDREL
Daphne Swift has not laid eyes on her devilishly charming husband, Captain Rafferty Cavendish, in quite some time. As a matter of fact, she wants the rogue to annul their brief marriage so that she can marry the reliable and estimable Lord Fitzwell. But the breathtakingly handsome Rafe is not interested in letting Daphne go-at least not without paying his scandalous price...
Rafe prefers to face the dangers of spying alone, but this time he needs his innocent, fiery wife to uncover the information he seeks. He has even agreed to release her from their marriage if she submits completely to his plan. However, Daphne's alluring combination of courage and curves makes her a dangerous distraction, and it is not long before Rafe is trading subterfuge for seduction in order to prove that Daphne is meant to be his and his alone...

Once again Valerie Bowman gives us a treat with her Playful Brides, woman who know their minds and have a plan. In this case the plan is slightly skewered but...
Daphne Swift has a plan. She plans to marry the ever so proper Lord Fitzwell. She's not asking for a life of excitement, of daring do, those days are behind her. She wants a simple life, a life of family and friends with little deviations from the norm. She just has this one teeny tiny thing she has to do, get her current marriage annulled. Years ago she married Rafe Cavendish because it was the only way her older brother would let her travel with Rafe. At the time the need was dire, now not so much. So, a little annulment is all that's needed, only Rafe won't cooperate. And Daphne is feeling things she just wants to leave in the past.
Captain Rafferty Cavendish married Daphne Swift in order to complete a mission. It was the only way he could but now he needs her again and all she wants is an annulment. So in a plan best let go, Rafe promises her an annulment if she'd just do one more thing for him. Only old passions ignite and Rafe isn't sure letting go is the best thing for either of them.
Passion ignites amidst the darkest of plots. Daphne is a woman holding back her true self and when she finds herself in Rafe's arms again it's almost impossible to let go.
Valerie Bowman does such a wonderful job of intertwining passion and duty, desire and destruction. It's a delicious trip into madness and I loved every minute of it! Great job!
