A cocky little fellow. I do intend to write his and Imogene's romance, but it's going to be some time before I do so. If you've read The Highlander's Woman and Redemption you'll see a little more of him there as well. Not as much as in Dangerous, but he's as cocky as ever in Redemption. :-) Thanks for asking!(less)

Hi Jane,

Thank you for inquiring about HIS PROPOSITION. This book has been put on hold due to poor sales of the other two titles in the series. Unfortunately, I have to focus on books that sell well in order to continue writing.

When I do write this book, it's unlikely to be a BDSM book, or at least not a full-blown BDSM. I pushed my limits with HIS TO COMMAND and HIS MISTRESS.

As a sexual assault survivor, I wanted to push the envelope of my healing, which I did, but at a personal cost. These two books were extremely difficult for me to write. I'm do not believe I have the emotional fortitude to write another BDSM and do it justice.

Thank you again for your interest. I deeply appreciate it.

Monica

I think I might have read this in high school, but I just reread it, and I loved it. While the narrative is old-fashion, and it's lighter on the romance, it's still a great read.

I discovered Jane Aiken Hodge in high school in the dark stacks of our school library. This one is a favorite of mine for the adventure, and for the love scene and ending, which I have never forgotten. It's just one of my comfort reads.

“This someone you were talking with wouldn't be that Frost fellow, would it?" Ewan's crisp accent floated into the kitchen like a brisk breeze. "The last thing you need is to be talking to that moronic jackass.”

“Perhaps the best way for you to ensure my trust is to make love to me as I deserve to be loved.” At her command, he lifted her into his arms and circled the bed to set her carefully on the mattress. Kneeling at the side of the bed, his gaze met hers, and he bowed his head.

“I am yours to command, my Lady.”

“Then come to bed, my love. I need your arms to keep me warm and your body to fill me until I shatter like glass.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”
Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

“Amusement made her blue eyes sparkle as she smiled up at him. Her hand moved slightly until one beautiful breast was exposed to him. The air left his lungs then returned in a rush.
"You, sweet witch, are playing with fire," he whispered hoarsely.
"Perhaps I should help you put it out.”
Monica Burns, Forever Mine

“I said kiss me again.” A sultry smile curved her lips. “Would that be such a difficult task to perform?”

Christ almighty, she wanted him to kiss her again. And she was ordering him to do so.”
Monica Burns, His Mistress

“He'd never been a believer in fate, but the last twenty-four hours were making him wonder about a lot of things. The one thing he knew without any doubt or reservation was that it was impossible to leave Victoria's side. 'She's everything to me. My life. My world. Without her, life has no meaning.”
Monica Burns, Forever Mine

“Hungry?" he asked as embarrassment flushed her cheeks, and he laughed. "Get dressed, and I'll have supper brought up to us."
"Isn't getting dressed defeating the purpose?" she said as she slowly rolled onto her side and trailed her fingers across his chest. "I mean you're just going to take off whatever I put on, right?"
Her fingers stirred a fire inside him as she dragged them down toward his stomach.With a life of its own, his cock stirred as she brushed her fingertips over his growing erection. Nicholas growled with need at her touch.
"You're deliberately trying to distract me."
"Is it working?" she murmured in a husky voice.”
