Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Infamous Proposal

Widowed at 20 and living in the country, beautiful heiress Lady Emma Capehart is longing for the independence and adventure she never had. Her father wishes to send her crotchety and controlling Aunt Hildegarde to be her new chaperone, and Emma can see no way out of the impending arrival than to become engaged. Thus, she promptly proposes to her good friend and neighbour Lord Nicholas Hansard, who, astonished, refuses the outrageous offer women, even ones as nave as Emma do not offer marriage to men, especially men of such a high birth as Nick. Humiliated, having believed that the dashing bachelor had meant more by his flirting in the past, Emma resolves never to bother him again, in which Nick is quite happy to oblige her. However, Emma soon becomes entrenched in the many unsuitable men clamouring for her hand. Lord Hansard realises that unless he steps in and helps, he will soon be shackled with an annoying and unsuitable neighbour. Accordingly, he suggests that he examines the many suitors, but after finding them all lacking, even those he introduces, he begins to think that perhaps no-one is as suitable as himself
