About the Author

Long before embarking on romantic adventures of her own, Julia Justiss read about them, transporting herself to such favourite venues as ancient Egypt, World War II submarine patrols, the Old South and, of course, Regency England. Soon she was keeping notebooks for jotting down story ideas. When not writing or traveling, she enjoys watching movies, reading and puttering about in the garden trying to kill off more weeds than flowers.

I won a copy of this book from the author and I was not required to give a favorable review. This was another great book written from Julia and another historical romance to make you think that tings are so much easier today with falling in love.

Another fast read in this series. I always enjoy the "spunk" of the Ms. Justiss's heroines, and the truly admirable traits she always incorporates into the heroes. So I am always guaranteed to love any book by Julia Justiss. This one grabbed me at the start and kept me turning the pages quickly to get to the end.

I enjoyed the story line. It recapped a little on the Hellions, which was good, as it has been a little while since I read one. The lady is no weeping clingy female. She knows what she wants, but is a little too sheltered to realize the difficulties in getting it. Her brother is a nasty type, taking after their father. Thankfully, we don't have to read about him. The lady in question meets a charming gentleman who has come to warn her of a ruinous plot against her. Once she gets over her disbelief, she starts to realize she likes him. He is definitely intrigued by her. I don't want to spoil the story by telling everything that happens. I'll just say I really like the gentleman who comes to warn her. He has a strong belief in what's right and wrong. He keeps his promises and treats the lady with a great deal of respect; a rarity in that time and this. Hadley's Hellions ? More like Hadley's True Gentlemen. Ms Justiss, it was a pleasure reading another in your series of Hadley's Hellions.

I love the Hadley's Hellions series by Julia Justiss! Politician Benedict Tawny sets out to protect Lady Alyssa from a plot that would tarnish her reputation and place her in a situation of a loveless marriage based on the dowry she brings to the marriage bed, but instead of helping Ben finds himself in a compromising situation that could destroy his political career. Now the only way to protect them both is for Ben to claim Alyssa as his wife. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

I received this ARC in return for fair and honest review, This books shows that there are true gentleman in this world. Benedict Tawny was in a tavern when a bet was made to ruin Lady Alyssa. This bet was made to get back at her brother. Benedict sets off to warn Lady Alyssa about this bet. When he meets her she is not what he expects. In the end they are both caught in the trap and only way out is to get married to save each other. Lady Alyssa just wants to be independent and under nobody control as what would happen if she marries and can't continue with what she wants to do. When she finds out by not marrying Benedict he will lose all he worked for to change the laws. They agree to marry and watch as love comes to both of them

I received this ARC and am giving a fair and honest review. Convenient Proposal to the Lady will have the reader experiencing many emotions from sadness, anger, joy and love. Benedict Tawny is one of Hadley's Hellions who learns of a vicious plot to ruin a Lady in retaliation to her brother. He tracks down the lady to warn her of the plot. Lady Alyssa has grown up under the abusive authority of her father and has decided that she does not want to marry. When Ben approaches her and reveals the plot against her she decides to fight back instead of running. Her revenge is thwarted leaving her and Ben in a compromising position. They agree to a marriage of convenience but as Alyssa comes to know Ben, she realizes that he is someone she can trust and love. Ben refuses to fall in love because love causes pain and misery but he learns that it also provides happiness and joy.

Benedict Tawny is a man of honor. I was impressed how he steadfastly stood by his word. Since childhood he protected his mother from the cruelty of society. He knows how vicious people can be. This is why he goes to Lady Alyssa to inform her that Lord Denbry plans to ruin her to get even with her brother. What a hero! Our heroine is a strong woman who is held back because she's a female. I hated to see that happen. She's a talented artist who's disregarded because of her sex. I loved that Benedict helped her achieve her potential. Even though they were forced into marriage, their attraction was powerful. I couldn't wait for them to realize that they were perfect for each other. Convenient Proposal To The Lady is a great addition to the Hadley's Hellions series. Julia Justiss has outdone herself. I cared for her characters and enjoyed catching up with those from previous stories. This story is romantic and filled with plenty of surprises. I couldn't put this book down. The love and caring pulled me in.

What a true Gentleman! A wonderful addition to this series! In this book, you get to see what an honorable gentleman Benedict Tawny truly is! Does his best to save a lady from ruin... Get a deeper look into Ben's life and see what this book holds for him and Alyssa! Enjoyed the ups and downs they experience to get to their HEA... seeing the growth each shows throughout this story! A storyline with characters that makes you root for them! Love the Hadley's Hellions! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Ben tries to help Alyssa avoid being ruined but things do not go as planned. Alyssa has a plan that is very much not what society wants for her. Together, they support each other and find a way to allow the love to come through. Ben is such a sweetheart, wanting to be honorable and having to work at it, but very sure of himself. He willingly gives Alyssa what she needs to feel strong and independent. Alyssa tries not to care about what others think of her, but she has the fortitude to do what is best for her and her future. When given the chance, she does what her heart tells her. I enjoyed this story, and have enjoyed the series, and I recommend both. I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Another fabulous story by Julia Justiss about the third member of Hadley’s Hellions to find love. Each book gets better and better but each can be read as a standalone. Both Ben and Alyssa have demons to overcome, the former although well educated was born out of wedlock and has faced scorn, taunts and mockery all of his life – the daughter of an Earl is above his touch. Whilst the fiercely independent Lady Alyssa has been tyrannized by her father and has a deep seated conviction that she will be inadequate as a politician’s wife and a hunger to pursue her art. What starts off as a convenient marriage grows to be more, for both of them but will they acknowledge it? Strongly recommended. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Ms. Justiss has a lock on the three H's. Ben is an honorable man, with a tender heart and Alyssa and he definitely give off heat. Convenient Proposal to the Lady examines how an act of kindness between strangers can lead to finding the love of a lifetime. Ben may not live up to societies standard of a hero, but he scored some major points with me. His willingness to protect an innocent woman from a dire situation proved he was more than what he even believed himself to be. Alyssa is a dreamer with a gift for the arts. Frustrating, naive but her open mind, made her a bit easier to take. Despite the unscrupulous villains, Ben and Alyssa had an easy time of stealing my heart.
