Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lord Richard Dashwood was handsome, charming, heir to riches, and could have any woman he wanted. He was also selfish, a rake, a gambler, betrayer, liar, without any honor ... Well, you get the idea.
His best friend, Lord Sidney Lynd, was the total opposite, except that he was already rich, not just heir-to-be. So any sensible woman would wish for Lord Sidney Lynd! Therefore, I was furious at Lady Flora!
Lady Flora Winton was already wealthy. She had rejected several proposals as she waited to find a love match. But she fell in love with Lord Dashwood's looks and words of love. She was blind to everything else and would believe no ill of him, even after he did several awful things to her! He even proposed to her only to jilt her a few hours later for someone with more money!
There is much more to tell, but to do so would spoil the book. In fact, I expect many to hate this story due to Flora being so intelligent toward everything and yet be so stupid concerning Dashwood! Yet I can easily recall myself in my "first love". I only too well remember being this blind, no matter what was said to me. The young can be stupid when blind!
**** Therefore, consider well before purchasing this one. In my opinion, it was great. I took much delight when Flora opened her eyes to REALLY see Dashwood's true self. But if you hate blind devotion, avoid this plot. ****

It's a little difficult (and frustrating) to write a review about a novel, enumerate the things that you didn't like and that disturbed, without really giving too much of the plot away, so that you inadvertently destroy whatever pleasure other readers may glean from the book at hand. Especially since a review is basically your own personal response to the novel, and others may not indeed share your view or opinion.
The problem I had with "Lady Flora's Fantasy" is that I never really took to the heroine, Lady Flora Winton, and found the blinkered manner in which she viewed people and events taking place around her, extremely frustrating and baffling. In brief, the plot for "Lady Flora's Fantasy" is as follows: while bathing at the sea, Lady Flora spies Lord Richard Dashwood is all his magnificent, muscled glory, and promptly looses her heart (and good sense) to him. And the fact that Lord Dashwood seems to be carrying out some kind of courtship of her, sends her over the moon! What she doesn't know is that Lord Dashwood is a dissolute wastrel and a gambler, and is courting Lady Flora solely because she fits his own criteria for a good wife -- rich and beautiful. Lady Flora is so engrossed with her fantasy of how wonderful and perfect Lord Dashwood is, that, not only will she hear no word against him, but she practically ignores all the other eligible bachelors who vie for her hand and heart, in particularly, Lord Dashwood's neighbour, Lord Lynd. A sober and honourable man, Lynd is appalled that Lady Flora has fallen under Dashwood's spell. He is even more appalled when he discovers that Dashwood is courting Lady Flora for her suitability, and not because Lady Flora has won his heart and esteem.

I picked this book as an 'in between' read when I couldn't make up my mind what to read next. I wasn't expecting much, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised.
The story is one of love at first sight, but it just so happens that the heroine, Flora, sets eyes on the wrong man first. She falls for a charming cad, who has her dancing to her tune for most of the book. Meanwhile, the quiet but desirable Lord Lynd, waits in the wings, ever the gentleman and in love with Flora.
This story is a little bit different to other regency romances in that the heroine marries neither of the love interest men, and doesn't shake off her infatuation for the 'wrong' man until the final few pages. There were times when the heroine was definitely TSTL but what kept me reading was that the characters were so well written, I could understand her stupidity, even if I didn't agree with it.

Ms. Kennedy steps out on a limb in this latest book to explore what happens to a woman when she falls for the wrong kind of man. It's a new twist for the Regency genre, one I enjoyed to the fullest. As Lady Flora works through her problems, which are plentiful in this wonderfully written book, we root for the hero who must jump through many hoops to win his lady love's hand. I even learned about "bathing machines" in this book, a little bit of history we all enjoy experiencing in a good Regency. Of all Shirley's books, this one is my favorite. Her prose is lovely. I really enjoy a story where I truly have to worry whether the heroine will end up the the hero, and Shirley does make me worry in Lady Flora's Fantasy. If you've not read any of Shirley's books, you'll rush right out and buy all the others after reading this one. Keep `em coming, Shirley.
