Proposing to Preston is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the lookout for love.
(Except Brooks... He's probably sailing around the world with Skye by now. And Cameron, who's having too much fun sparring with Margaret to think about love. And Christopher, who's only on the lookout for a congressional seat and absolutely. Nothing. Else.)
Preston Winslow has a heart as open as the sky and room in his life for someone special. When he falls in love with Broadway actress Elise Klassan, he holds nothing back.
Elise, who has made tremendous sacrifices to forward her career, is swept off her feet by handsome, charming Preston...but the stage has been her first love for so many years, she doesn't know if there's room for Preston in her life. When the day comes that she must choose between her ambition and her heart, she profoundly hurts the one man who could have made her happy.
Two years later, Elise has become a world-famous actress, and Preston is a very successful lawyer. But fame has not equaled happiness for Elise, and Preston is much too bitter and cynical ever to consider falling in love again.
Is it possible that the only person who can mend Preston's heart is the one who originally broke it? Only if Elise can figure out a way to make him believe in love all over again.

It could have been better. He forgave her to easily after all she put him through. It just felt too rushed. I didn't feel any of her feelings toward him throughout the story. I mean, I felt more of her passion for her career than their relationship. Even when she came back it seemed more like she was feeling unloved and unappreciated and she needed a boost from his view in always putting her on a pedestal because he loved her so much. I honestly felt sorry for Preston. This is a 3.5 rating.
Love at first site...that is how I fell in love with Preston. I have fallen for all of the Blueberry Lane heroes, but have to say, Preston has made a lasting place in my heart. Preston first sees Elise while on a date with Beth Atwell. It was lust at first site. You can't help but root for this relationship, and fall for both of them...the young law student and the plain, Mennonite actress. Elise ends up breaking his heart(and you feel the pain right along with Preston). I remember hearing about how Preston doesn't date in Bidding on Brooks, so was anxious to hear the reason why, and I completely understand now. I did want to shake him when he was still carrying the torch two years later...but was pleasantly surprised with the ending. While Preston was able to see issues on both sides of the relationship, which I give him lots of credit for, I found him totally charming, loving, considerate, compassionate and forgiving. Elise does a lot of growing through the story as well.
Lauren Sweet again delivers an outstanding performance.
