Talk about twists and turns, OMG, does this book have some. A Wicked Proposition, by Karolyn Cairns, is a phenomenal historical romance with more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. Ms. Cairns has provided readers with a well-written book furnished with outstanding characters. I totally love the characters in this book. The characters' relationships are so twisted I'm not even going to try to explain them. I will say there is plenty of drama, smokin' hot sex, action, suspense and bits of humor. This is one of those books you can't put down. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Karolyn Cairns soon. A Wicked Proposition is book 1 of the Wicked Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. After reading the epilogue though, you'll want to read the next book.
