Read full description of the books An Unladylike Offer:This is the first M&B book I feel like writing a review to: The story about a young woman who is tired of being treated brutally by her father and the path she chooses to escape him. Father wants her married off to some old man as the ultimate punishment that her mother left him. She is beaten and scared. And the only silver lining in her life is St John.How a very unladylike proposal ends up awaking a 33 year old man from his stupor (literally) and giving him a chance at love. I liked the story because it is very unique, Esme is very headstrong and tired of men taking control of her life without even asking what she really wants. She is the reason St John gets a chance to reconcile with his brother, the Duke. And she is also the reason he gets some refreshing sleep without drugs and nightmares. He has a reputation and is totally unwilling to ruin her. In his attempts to avoid her, he only ends up falling for her. Halfway through the book, you see an ending coming but the actual twists and turn only put Esme in an even better light.
Read information about the authorChristine Merrill has wanted to be an author for as long as she can remember. But one thing stood in her way: touch typing.
Six weeks spent on an IBM Selectric in her Sophomore year of high school proved that she would never be able to produce one readable page of manuscript, much less several hundred.
Twenty years passed, and she found ways to pass the time: marrying her high school sweetheart; having two sons; and taking an assortment of jobs in professional theater costume shops, including a miserable year and a half spent styling wigs for a certain hamburger-selling clown (who shall remain nameless, since I don't want to incur the wrath of a major American corporation) and a couple of weeks working on a TV movie with one of the sexiest men alive (whose name I'm happy to drop: Mark Harmon!).
During that time, someone invented word processing, and a reliable spell checker.
Christine returned to her childhood dream, only to discover that there was more to the whole writing thing than accurate typing. The next years were spent learning to tell stories that people might want to read, and trying to find someone who wanted to buy them. Her chance came when she won the RWA's Golden Heart Competition for unpublished manuscripts. The winning story, soon to be known as THE INCONVENIENT DUCHESS, was bought by the contest judges, the delightful editors at Mills & Boon, in Richmond, Surrey.
Christine is now busy writing her fifth book, and is more than slightly jealous that her manuscripts get to visit England, while she stays home in Wisconsin
