First I would like to Thank FMB Blog Tours for allowing me to be on this great Tour. I have to say I love this time period. People in this period did not marry for love but for status and convenience. An Improper Wife is one of those reads where you sit back and take a look at a two people who are being forced to marry and they don't know each other but the laws of that time state if a man die...more

For the first time I read the summary I said I want to read this and I wasnn't dissapointed when I did.I liked the story and it reminded me of the book Her Husband's Harlot(one of my favorite historical romance novels) in some parts.The book had a little bit of mystery towards the end and a last chapter that was like an epilogue.Caroline isn't like the usual heroines in this kind of book.Hell even in the 21rst century books the heroines aren...more
I couldn't put this book down. The story was fast paced, the main characters were lovable, and the chemistry between Caroline and Taran was intense. The love scenes were both tasteful and hot. I was rooting for them from the beginning. Definitely a great romantic read.
On the other hand, it had a couple too many sex scenes that didn't exactly fit the story due to the fact that I felt they were out of context. I have absolutely no other complaints about this title, it was believable, organic, with a great pacing and a lovely ending. I had an amazing experience since it overcame my expectations- a highly enjoyable and comic read (oh, and sexy too)!
"An Improper Wife" is a beautiful story that is far more that just an erotic adventure that has an abundance of raw sexuality.
Ms. Scott and Ms. Waters draw you in from the first chapter until the very end. Well done, ladies! I hope to read more from you both!
