Publisher's Summary

Travis Grayson feels responsible for a serious injury to his long-time friend, Libby. Out of guilt, he proposes, much to her delight. Not long after, he meets Evaline Radcliffe, and she immediately steals his heart. He finds himself in a predicament: he's betrothed to one woman out of duty, and head over heels in love with another.

To make matters worse, Evaline eventually discovers his duplicity. Evaline has a problem of her own, and she enlists her father's help in solving it. Her father's solution is to arrange for her to be kidnapped.

    Audiobook junkie here. It is to the point that I can't do housework, drive anywhere, walk anywhere without an audio book playing.

    "It all began with the guilt"

    As I think back to listening to this book, my thoughts are mixed.

    The story opened and I formed an opinion of how the plot would go, except it didn't go that way...at all. The conclusion of the book made sense to the story and wrapped everything up nicely, but I still have a lingering question wondering what would have happened if the plot had twisted in a few of the ways that my mind thought it would.

    Travis drove Libby home one evening and an unfortunate accident on the ride home caused Libby injury to her legs, making the doctor wonder if she would walk again. Travis feels guilty and does everything he can to help Libby, including selling cattle to pay for a doctor and even offering to marry her. Then Travis meet a woman in town that he is attracted to and the plot thickens.

    One thing I do like about books by Barbara Goss is the characters. They have character and integrity without being boring, uptight or stuffy.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Any additional comments?

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.<br/><br/>Out of Barbara Goss books that I have read/listened to, this has to be for me the best of her works.<br/>I liked and believed in her characters. I felt a connection with them and kept wondering how on earth they were going to get out of the mess they were in. There are twist and turns that keep you listening until you get to the end.<br/><br/>Would highly recommend!

    "Love conquers all!"

    A sweet story about marrying for love verses marrying for honor! Another great series by Barbara Goss! I love the narration on this book. Although the English accents don't sound authentic, each woman's voice is distinct enough to tell them apart without their names relayed every time they speak!
    There are several parts where I giggled and even laughed outright! Why is Ned attracted to the smell of Ellen if it reminds him of his Grandmother? I've enjoyed this whole series but the audio version really adds to the story in my opinion!

    Story
    "What to do when you get into a mess?"

    Travis Grayson feels responsible for an accident that was not his fault. Out of that feeling, he gets himself into a fix and does not know how to get out of it. Evaline finds herself in a fix of her own. She recruits her father to help her out which then turns into a bigger mess.
    How does this couple who find each other despite their messes they find themselves in grow their blooming relationship?

    This book is full of twist and turns and the reader will find themselves wondering just how it will all work out. This is a good listen and a strong beginning of a new series. Leonor Woodworth does an excellent job telling the story and using her talent with the many voices of this story. Looking forward to book two!

    This book was given to me for an honest review.

    "Looking forward to book 2!"

    The first in a series, The Guilty Proposal is a sweet, western romance. This is my first Barbara Goss book, and really enjoyed the story. Leonor A Woodworth, a favorite narrator of mine, performs this feature of Travis, a single man who has gotten himself in an unfortunate circumstance. As a result of an accident that he feels responsible for, he proposes to his friend Libby. Just as this is happening, who should walk in? The love of his life. Now being betrothed to a woman whom he doesn't love and wanting a woman he can't have leaves Travis in a terrible situation. There is a cast of supporting characters that make this adventure he has gotten himself into fun to listen to. Between arranged marriages, kidnappings, roving doctors and best friends in love with your fiance, this book is sure to keep you entertained and wanting more.

    Leonor A Woodworth provides a wonderfully warm performance. She is one of my favorite narrators and find her faith based narrations to be the perfect remedy for my busy mind.

    --I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    The Guilty Proposal
    : Barbara Goss

    I had a good idea where the plot was headed. A good book makes you feel for the characters. I despised several of them in this historical mid-western fiction. Looking forward to the next installment in the series.




    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Leonor A Woodworth gave a fine performance.

    "a lovely story"

    Barbara Goss is a christian writer of this western romance. The narrator Leonor A Woodworth is new to me. I thought the narrator did a good performance, but sometimes it was difficult to differentiate the characters. This is a sweet and clean story where the main character must decide between guilt feelings or true love. I enjoyed this book for a change of pace compared to my normal listening genres. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.
