The Proposal by Lori Wick

William Jennings is content to live alone and enjoy his life as a bachelor. Disdaining the vain, deceitful women of London's high society, he feels no need for a wife. However, when three children arrive at his home with the news that he is now their guardian due to his cousin's passing, his comfortable bachelor's life is thrown into upheaval. Determined to parent the three children as best he can, he visits his estranged sister where he meets the enchanting Marianne Walker and learns that parenting is not an easy job. During his visit with his sister, he questions his beliefs about love, family, children, and most importantly, God. Will he ever find the peace he searches for and can he ever win the attention of Marianne Walker, a woman who his children adore?

I love most of Lori Wick's books and this one is no exception. She draws in the reader in the beginning of the story and doesn't let go until the very last page. This book was romantic and even humorous at times. The characters were well-rounded and realistic. Even Thomas, who was remarkably mature sounding when he spoke, was acknowledged by the other characters that he was overly mature for his age.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet, romantic read.
