A Viscount's Proposal is a fun and interesting story set in Regency England. It is a nice pick for someone who enjoys reading novels that are set in that time period, while looking for a clean and wholesome book. The villains behind the mayhem are pretty easy to figure out, however, I still enjoyed watching the characters make their own discoveries. The changing attitudes and interactions between Leorah and Edward were very fun and I liked the progression of the story. I also enjoyed catching up with the two main characters from the first book in this series, however, this title can stand alone if you have not read the first book.

I absolutely adored the characters in this book. Melanie Dickerson's characters are always a treat, but these two were especially fun to watch. First there's Leorah, who wants a happy marriage, and isn't ashamed to defy convention when it's the right thing to do. She has a good heart, and is always trying to help others. Then there's Edward, who believes in being above reproach. As a prominent member of society, he cannot be seen as anything less than perfect, though his cold exterior hides a genuinely good heart. When they're found in a carriage at night, and alone, a proposal is the expected outcome, but neither is interested in the other. However, they soon learn they'll have to work together, and maybe they'll discover that they're not as bad as they thought. They had a fun relationship to read, and I loved watching their characters blossom, to discover true goodness in each other.

Melanie Dickerson won my heart with her YA fairytale remakes, but with the Regency Spies series she has shown that her talents are far reaching. The story was fast paced. The characters were well developed and likable. Her shady characters were just the right degree of shady. It's wonderful to have entertaining, clean stories to read and A Viscount's Proposal has turned out to be a great way to start off my summer reading.

In Melanie Dickerson's latest addition, A Viscount's Proposal, to her Regency Spies of London series, you will find Leorah Langdon at odds with her brother's best friend, the Viscount of Withinghall. Nathaniel Langdon and Edward Withinghall have been close friends ever since they meet at school, as young boys. Edward, however, does not have time for his friend's younger sister, Leorah, who does not seem to want to follow society's rules. Edward is more focused on following a clear path to become the next Prime Minister of England; therefore, he wants nothing in the way of achieving his goal! You will be surprised to find that after a carriage accident leaves Edward and Leorah in a compromising situation, they must suddenly deal with the serious after affects. Edward is willing to propose to save Leoah's reputation; however, Leorah, under no circumstances, is willing to say yes! After seeing her parents loveless life together, she wants something more for her own marriage. Not only do the rumors seem to be beginning, but it has also been discovered that the damage to the viscount's vehicle was deliberately set! When it is determined that Edward cannot be moved for several weeks, while his leg, broken in the accident, is healing, you will be interested to see how both Leorah and Edward's mindsets change when they are forced to spend time together. Will they change enough to embrace a new way of thinking? You will interested to discover where Leorah and Edward end up by the final page of this tale!

I'm not a fan of historical fiction, but decided to give this book a try.....it immediately reminded me of Pride and Prejudice and I couldn't stop reading it!! Pride and Prejudice is one of my ALL TIME favorite romances and Dickerson brilliantly writes A Viscount's Proposal JUST as Jane Austen would've wanted to see it done!! Leorah is unconventional, fearless, loyal, and protective when it comes to her loved ones. Yet in the two encounters she has with Lord Withinghall annoys and flusters them both before they are formally introduced. They are annoyed with each other immediately and oh, the fun banter does not stop whenever they're in the same room! Little does Edward know of Leorah's one fear, a loveless marriage. Little does Leorah know of Edward's fear, being involved in a scandal after a tragedy from his childhood. There are misunderstandings, dangerous situations, plenty of tedious gossip, and these two characters gradually realizing how wrong they were about first impressions. LOOOVED that Sense and Sensibility is mentioned in the book and a baby gets to be named Jane, SO CLEVER!! Hated it when Leorah is thrown from her horse, that was seriously a tense moment for me and then the carriage accident, oh my. Loved also how one shooter gets justice in a different way, Dickerson considers every detail that makes this book so enjoyable and I loved every bit of it (can i please give this book 6 or 7 stars!). Could NOT put this book down and so glad I took a chance reading it, Jane Austen would be DELIGHTED with this Viscount's Proposal :) With thanks to the author for the review copy provided, all thoughts and comments are my own.

Oh, Melanie! How you love us to write a Regency series! In the second book to her Regency Spies of London series, we continue on with the Langdon family. This time it’s the story of Leorah, Nicholas’ sister, and Viscount Edward Withinghall. These two do not appreciate each others’ differences, to be sure! Their bickering and irritability are very entertaining and keep you laughing throughout. Melanie is a YA author, but her books are enjoyable by all. The characters are very deep and hilarious. There are a lot of fun Regency “celebrity” references and many scenes reminiscent of Jane Austen’s novels (P&P especially!). Make sure to pick up a copy! Loads of fun and you will fall in love with Edward! Be sure to pick up some of her other fun novels as well! Thanks for this fun read in exchange for my thoughts. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!

A Viscount’s Proposal ( The Regency Spies of London-#2) By: Melanie Dickerson A Viscount’s Proposal is book two in The Regency Spies of London by Melanie Dickerson. Dickerson knows how to capture your heart right from the start and not let go till the end. She did not disappoint. The story and the characters , both were well written and easy to follow. I love that the characters were well developed. Leorah is a lady that has no patience for the society and their rules. She knows what she wants and that is true love. She thinks that Edward, the Viscount Withinghall is a stuffy and pompous man. Things change after an accident involving the two. Will Leorah still hold out for her true love? What about Edward, is he still the stuffy man she thought he was? I laughed and also caught myself holding my breath at times and trying to read faster to see what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed A Viscount’s Proposal and I know you will too. I was given a complimentary copy of this book by NetGalley , but was not told that I had to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.

This story really grabbed me and would not let me go. Leorah was my kind of girl; she refused to comply with society's ridiculous rules for women and she was not afraid to speak up and out. I just laughed and laughed when she and her friend Felicity were caught comparing Lord Withinghall to a pirate! The fact that Lord Withinghall and Leorah had an immediate dislike for each other made the story so much more interesting with every encounter between the two! The verbal sparring was intense and I imagined I was there watching it all unfold! Then everything cranked up a notch when the mystery, murder and secrets began! Dickerson masterfully tells a story that will draw you in and hold you captive until the very last word is read! I was completely intrigued and loved every minute of The Viscount's Proposal and you will too! I received a copy of this book via netgalley and was under no obligation to review it.

This is a great sequel in this series, and I really enjoyed it. The characters are well developed, the book moves at a really nice pace, the plot is well done. Simply put it's a very well written story. I love this time period, and I really liked the main characters in this read. The way the main characters view each other reminded me a bit if pride and prejudice. It shows how important it can be to not make judgments about people before we know them. The faith and forgiveness theme was strong and rounded out a wonderful read. Leorah is a great lead character, and her stubbornness and personality really make this a strong rather fun novel! She is definitely a character with whom I'd love to spend time! This was an enjoyable read and one I recommend, I plan on buying the paper version to put on my forever shelves. " I would never shun you. God loves us all. We are all frail creatures with no right to condemn anyone." I received this book from the author. The opinions are my own.

I love Melanie Dickerson's fairy tales with a Christian theme. I have always loved fairy tales. I also love a good Regency novel. Melanie Dickerson has proved she can switch genres effortlessly. She does do an awesome Regency. Top notch! Just excellent. And she adds a great mystery as well in this book. I loved every minute and finished in two days! Looking forward to her next book *I was provided a copy of this book via Net Galley from the publisher. My review is my own opinion.
