Dear Listener:

Phillip Mercerault and Sabrina Eversleigh first appeared in An Honorable Offer, a Regency romance published in 1981. I changed the title to The Offer to reflect its new status as a historical romance after I rewrote the novel extensively (in 1997). The result is a complex, fascinating story with thrilling plot twists and richer characters.

During a blizzard, Sabrina Eversleigh runs away from home after her new brother-in-law attempts to rape her. She would surely die if Phillip Mercerault did not rescue her. He nurses her back to health and discovers that he is not a hero. Instead, he's a gentleman who has compromised a lady. Now there's only one thing to do-marry her.

But Sabrina turns him down, leaving him completely baffled. However, things don't turn out quite the way Sabrina planned, and it is she, then, who must propose, sweetening the pot with a big dowry and an offer of freedom for Phillip. But what's a husband to do when he knows his bride is afraid of men? And more important, what is the bride to do when she follows her husband to his mistress's lodgings and discovers him on the point of indulging?

Phillip and Sabrina have a long way to go before they can sit amicable at the same table together. Do write me and tell me what you think of The Offer.

    I had a bad feeling about this book when I saw the premise (young woman must escape from the brother-in-law intent on raping her) and the year it was originally written (1981, during the "forcible seduction" era of romances, when men were men and women did what they were told and learned to love it). However, the introduction to my copy made a big deal about how it had been re-written in the late 90's so I figured I'd give it a shot.BIG MISTAKE. I am not sure what was re-written here, but this book is extremely not good. The dialog is stilted and doesn't always make sense. Seriously, I don't care if the language was more formal 200 years ago, people don't talk this way. There are no surprises in this book, for all that there are plenty of plot twists. The heroine is very young, and while she's not quite "too stupid to live" she definitely has her moments. The villain is a rapist who enjoys inflicting painful sex on women whose circumstances leave them subordinate to him. He is also described as an effeminate "lisping fop" who is dismissed as unpleasant but harmless by the other men in the story, leaving him free to terrorize any women in his surroundings. By the end of the book this information is not a secret by any means, but no one cares once the heroine is rescued from his clutches. In fact, another character mentions that the villain's been raping the household maids, and that his wife looks miserable, but shrugs it off. OH WELL. The hero, by contrast, is merely an over-possessive bully who is looking forward to a lifetime of bossing his wife around and sparking fights that involve thrown objects. It'll keep him on his toes, is his reasoning. Marital bliss! At least he's "all man" and not an effeminate fop! I was amazed by his inability to foresee the consequences of any of his actions at any time. I guess this book is proof that there is someone out there for everyone.
