Meet the Author

Sara Bennett has always had an interest in history, and to survive a series of mind-numbing jobs, she turned to writing historical romance. She lives in an old house, with her husband and animals too numerous to mention, in the state of Victoria, Australia, where she tries to keep the house and garden tidy, but rarely succeeds—she'd rather be writing or reading.

    enjoyable early Victorian romance

    In 1837 at Miss Debenhan's Finishing School, Marissa Rotherhild, daughter of two avid botanists, tells her Husband Hunters Club friends that she has chosen her husband, the Honorable George Kent of Surrey. Known as a rake, she believes she can change the womanizer.

    Marissa goes to meet George at the family country estate, but instead encounters his reclusive older sibling, Lord Valentine Kent, who she finds attractive and his obsession with roses makes her feels close to home. However, his quest for the most likely extinct Crusader's Rose excites her almost as much as does Valentine.

    The latest Husband Hunters Club early Victorian romance (see Led Astray by a Rake) is an enjoyable tale starring two fascinating lead characters linked by desire for one another and knowledge of botany that Sara Bennett deftly interweaves into the plot. The story line starts a bit slower than usual, but once Valentine and Marissa begin the search with a rival of his stalking them to steal the find if they make it, the plot moves rather quickly and entertainingly. Sub-genre fans will join the trek for the rare rose as A Most Sinful Proposal is worth reading.

    Enjoy from start to finish

    A Husband Hunters Club story. With her sites set on George Foxton, Marissa finds herself attracted to his brother. An intriguing story about two people instantly attracted to each other but too stubborn to see that the best laid plans and resolutions can be thwarted in a cchance meeting.

    Settle in for a great read!

    Marissa Rotherhild knew want she wanted from life - a husband but not just any husband one that had no interest in anything scientific. She had spent her life with parents who paid more attention to the ferns and moss than they did to their own daughter. Marissa even knew who her husband should be - George Kent as he was handsome, interesting to talk to and paid attention to her. However Marissa's fellow members of the Husband Hunters Club questioned her reasoning on why she would settle for this particular man and she explained that that he would make her laugh and give her a sense of belonging that her parents never did.

    Marissa thought George was her perfect match and she was delighted when he invited her for a weekend house party at his family estate. But what a surprise when she arrives to discover that it is not George she desires but in fact his brother Lord Valentine Kent. Valentine is everything she did not want in a husband in that he is overly intelligent, driven and focused on his main goal in life which is finding The Crusader's Rose one of those mysteries that had become legend in the botanical circles. Valentine was committed to finding this perfect rose and he thought nothing could stop him but the minute he laid his eyes on Marissa everything else seemed unimportant and his focus became winning her hand and proving his affections were built on love and respect not a quick conquest.

    But there is someone else trying to find the rose and this person is as obsessed as Valentine but his motive is revenge not science, but revenge for what Valentine does not know. While the man stays one step ahead of Valentine and Marissa as they follow one lead after another Valentine becomes more convinced that he has a traitor in his home and that in proper English society is not going to be tolerated. But trying to find the rose becomes less important with every passing day he spends in Marissa's company as she it turns out was what he was looking for all along - long and companionship.

    The 2nd Book in this series is as amazing as the first (Led Astray by a Rake) and I expected nothing less from Ms. Bennett. The characters are refreshing, colorful and such a delight that you have such sorry when the book is over because you want it to go on and on the romance is that sweet.

    For get it

    I was so looking forward on reading this book. Now I have and very dispointed in it. It was not up to par like the the first book Led astray by a rake now that books jumb started right away. This book drag on. I will think about the next one to come out. It is not worth the money but do like the cover but thats it and that what got me. And Sara Bennett is really good with her books but not this one.
