4.0 out of 5 stars The Propositon by Shirley Harrison. 18 July 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was the bomb!!!!!!!!The characters were very realistic and interesting; they were certainly well-suited for each other.
Also, the plot was full of suspense.I could certainly understand the dilemna which this couple faced and I am glad that love conquered all. This was the first book that I read by Shirley Harrison and I am certainly going to read the others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shades Of Romance Magazine Review 3 May 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Shirley Harrison's The Proposition grabs your attention from the very beginning. Carolyn Hardy is a no nonsense career oriented woman, who has little or no time for romance. She literally bumps into Michael Hennessey, who is a professional football player, and the sparks fly from there.
In their first encounter, Michael makes the mistake of flaunting his money. She is not impressed by his profession; nor his bank account. She finds his carelessness with his money irresponsible and insulting.
She declines his advances and he decides at the time that she's not worth pursuing because of her attitude.
Two years later they run into each by chance. Carolyn unwillingly agrees to be auctioned as a Bachelorette in a charity event hosted by her sister. The top bidder is no other than Michael. Michael finds his attraction to Carolyn still there and he is determined to convince her that he is no longer the careless man of two years ago.
Carolyn is a work-a-holic and claims she does not have time for a relationship. She ignores his advances at first, but he is finally able to break down her defenses. They get off to a slow start because of many interruptions. However, once they are together, Carolyn slowly lets her guard down and begins to see him as a caring and giving man.
The suspense comes into play when Michael is forced to make a decision to protect not only his immediate family, but Carolyn as well. He gets caught up in a web of deceit that jeopardizes his reputation and his relationship with Carolyn. His world begins to crumble and he is unsure if Carolyn will be there when the dust settles.
This is your classic romance novel but with a special twist. These two strong characters are able to realize the importance of believing and trusting in one's self and in their mate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does The Highest Bidder Always Win? 8 May 2003
By Vannie Ryanes - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Football player Michael Hennesey has bid $15,000 for a date with Carolyn Hardy at a charity ball. Anyone else would be happy. However, Carolyn does not like football players especially Michael Hennesey. But he does not care, he likes and wants her. Carolyn does not know that Michael has made it impossible for anyone else to beat his bid. He is aware of how Carolyn feels about him and is determined to change her mind. Carolyn a successful engineer from a wealthy family s not impressed with the bid. She is annoyed that she was pressured to get involved as a participant and further annoyed to learn who the highest bidder is. Later Carolyn is surprised to find, by accident, a different side of Michael one that she can relate to and love. When Michael is approached and threatened by corrupt sources he does what he feels is necessary to protect Carolyn and those he loves. Now he has to rise above a scandal that can destroy his good name, career and Carolyn's love. He has to regain Carolyn's faith in him as she struggles to continue to believe in him. Carolyn is not sure who or what to believe. Was she right in her earlier of assessment of Michael or should she listen to her heart?
THE PROPOSITION is light reading but you can feel the sexual tension between the characters Carolyn and Michael and the suspense and mystery is real enough that it could have been taken from today's headlines. Enjoyable Reading.
