An Improper Encounter is the third book in The Macalisters Series by Erica Taylor. This is an historical/regency romance with some drama, angst, mystery, and suspense. You don’t need to have read the other two books before reading this one, but they would provide wonderful backstories, and give character information that would give you an enhanced reading experience. Even though each book in this series focuses on one particular Macalister, the others all make appearances and we get snippets of what’s happening in their lives too. I am enjoying getting to know the Macalisters and following them on their stories.
This book is Sarah Macalisters story, she became the mother figure to her siblings when their own mother died, and she ‘raised’ them to be a loving and tight-knit group. She then went on to get married, but her husband soon died, leaving her a very wealthy widow. She meets Dr. William Gordon on her travels, and on a dare engages in a scandalous affair. What was just meant to alleviate her boredom, and add a little spark into her life, becomes far more complicated than either could have imagined. Their three day affair awakens feelings that neither really expected- and they begin to make plans together. But Ms. Taylor didn’t make it easy for them, adding a twist or two to make things interesting. Will they find their happiness together? Or will there be too many obstacles in their way?
I recommend this story (and series) to anyone who likes historical/regency romance.
Thank you, Ms. Taylor!
