Editorial Reviews

Mr. Raine - Navarro, to his friends and lovers - is the most gorgeous man that that widow Trina Matthews has ever seen. The hunky Native American exudes pure unbridled sexuality. But how will she get this Texas stud in bed? She can’t just outright ask him...unless she makes him an offer he just can’t refuse.

Propositioning Mr. Raine, coyly performed by Liz Chastain, is fun steamy erotica that’s pure fantasy - for better or worse. Don’t expect anything other than to be mildly titillated by this tale. But hey, at least it’s not boring.

Publisher's Summary

Trina Mattews lost her husband of 16 years to a tragic accident. Starting her life over in the small town of Hailey, Texas, at the age of 38 sounded like a good idea but she never counted on the loneliness she’d experience.

Navarro Raine is the hottest man she’s ever seen. He’s tall, with piercing blue eyes and Native American beauty. He fills her nighttime fantasies and makes her wonder about all the things she’s yet to experience in bed. And Navarro has a reputation for being very good in that department.…

Discovering he’s about to lose his family ranch, Trina has the perfect solution for both of them. She’s willing to offer Navarro the money to save his ranch if he’ll give her the kind of sex she’s only read about. It might be the craziest thing she’s ever done but after years of vanilla sex, she’s made up her mind - it’s time to taste a few more flavors.

How do you proposition a cowboy? Quick and hard!

Would you consider the audio edition of Propositioning Mr. Raine to be better than the print version?

I think they are equally awesome. This is one of my favorite Laurann Dohnner books because the people are more real. Instead of cyborgs and new species (which I love as well) I can sit back and feel like I am a part of the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Trina, because she is the most loyal woman ever. She never puts her dead husband down, even if he was sadly lacking. She is heroic in the fact that she finds the courage to try and make a new life when he dies and she is everything that Navarro needs in his life.

Have you listened to any of Liz Chastain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to anything by Liz Chastain before, but I have already downloaded the second book in the series and will be listening to it soon.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Can you find the courage to take a wild chance on love? To live out your wild fantasies for 8 weeks? Would you dare?

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this audio book as I have always enjoyed this book period. It is racy and has some very explicit sex scenes. No one under the age of 18 should listen to this book.

4 Propositioning Mr. Raine Stars

I freaking loved how different this was from anything Laurann Dohner has written.

Trina is a character you can’t help but root for, she loved her husband but they were just not compatible in the bedroom and for her to have the guts to go up and talk to Navarro and lay it out. Well, that was just all kinds of ballsy.

There was a little dramalama but not too much and it doesn’t last which is always a good thing. But it was interesting how everything fell into place.

Also, I really liked Liz Chastain’s narration, she does sultry and sexy well. Her male voice is pretty great too. ;)

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Missed it by that much...

I really wanted to like this story. The premise seemed promising and I assumed it could lead to a cute and maybe amusing romance story. It almost did. I liked the main male character. He was little flawed but sensitive enough to make you care. The main female character appeared to be trying to find herself. Unfortunately, what I found was a woman that was a little too weak and passive. There were a few situations where she was around men who were attempting to dominate and control her through their actions and demeaning comments. Her responses, in my opinion, were lackluster and therefore slightly unbelievable. Especially her response to being demeaned. At any moment, I expected her to just roll over and play dead. Until that point in the story, I was enjoying the build up of the romance. Afterwards, I struggled to hang in there since I was close to the end and I wanted to see how the author wrapped up the loose ends. So suffice it to say, the author did keep my interest. Had the woman been less passive and more sure of herself, I would have truly enjoyed this story. The narrator -- well, maybe she read the way she did to portray a weak woman, but I had a hard time listening to her because she succeeded. That whispering voice began to grate on my nerves right along with the main female character.

I'd like to wrap this up by saying something positive. The story really was actually sweet. The romance, although a little rushed, was believable. The chemistry between the two characters was evident and could be felt. The sex, well, don't play this out loud around children unless you're in the mood to explain the birds, the bees and where honey comes into play. I think most would enjoy the story line and overlook the female's flaws. So you might want to try it yourself and see if it works for you.

Great, wonderful and famed sexy

I have read this book several times and listened on audiobook a couple times too. I thought I left a review. But it is a favorite of mine and Liz Chastain did a wonderful job on narration of the book. I really wish you would continue with the other RAINE brothers. I have read and listened to River and loved it but I think Drake and Dusty and Ryder need their HEA. Oh, can't forget the two " blood brothers" either. Recommend girly

What a deal!

When the widowed heroine asks the sexy rancher for a deal, he's at first shocked but takes it. Their arrangement works great until one of his brothers get snooping around and then things get complicated. Add in one nasty ex-brother-in -law, a busybody brother and things go to a bad place. Can they get their deal back on track despite the interference or will it be too painful? Narration was well done.

Wonderful book!

If you could sum up Propositioning Mr. Raine in three words, what would they be?

Oh my goodness Mr. Raine was seriously hot!!! This book was fun and sexy, and I loved that the characters were over 30 and not perfect!

loved the story!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Loved the story, the narrator had good accents and that's the best I can say about her. There was no inflection in the voice so I might as well have my kindle on auto read...
Have loved all of these, the new species and cyborg books.

Would you be willing to try another one of Liz Chastain’s performances?

No.

Do you think Propositioning Mr. Raine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Definitely!
