I am not sure that in real life an earl would personally escort a “shop girl”, even if she is a modiste, to look for suitable premises. Of course, he wants her building out of the way of his building plans, plus he has an ulterior motive because he lusts after her, but I am not convinced. However, this is fiction land and I suppose some liberties will be taken.
Reading modern writers of Regency/Georgian/Victorian era novels, I am beginning to think that virgin brides were an urban myth. I also think the love scene unnecessarily detailed. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but I prefer sex that stops at the bedroom door, and although I do have to admit that said scene is very sensual, it is still a bit too detailed for my tastes.
The writing flows well and it held my interest to the end. The writer has a good sense of humour which I like in an HR. I am almost sure that all titles are correctly used, with only one a bit dubious, so that is a plus for Ms Linden. A light, enjoyable novella, but not quite a four-star read for me.
When Carmathen goes to Madame Follette’s, he expects the mother, not breathtakingly beautiful Felicity, but still he won’t budge either. Until Felicity starts to get under his skin, and he decides to help her, whichever way he can. While they agree to disagree, Felicity warms up to the Earl, until she realises that she wants to be his, whatever the consequences; he will not marry a mere shop girl, surely. And oh how exquisitely Ms. Linden conveys those feelings of falling in love, of being in love! I don’t believe I’ve ever read anything, anywhere that describes what love is more accurately, more emotionally. Ms. Linden’s lush and sumptuous prose is so evocative that the words become images; the dialogues are brilliantly simple and historically accurate. Felicity and Carmathen discuss things rationally instead of bickering, they reach compromises. And when the delicious flirtation becomes more, well, one almost wishes that smelling salts hadn’t gone out of fashion, because that’s how it made me feel. What a glorious romance. Felicity and Carmathen’s passion becomes all-encompassing, so beautiful, so touching, and it all feels so real.
A FASHIONABLE AFFAIR is a triumph of exquisite, sublime writing, blistering sensuality, and a love so true, it takes a few moments to come back to reality. A FASHIONABLE AFFAIR is a magnificent novella, the epitome of fine writing, and the joy of experiencing love. I believe I have run out of superlatives, but this story deserves them all!
