Lady Starling has lived a very full and exciting life. Some good, but most of it has been bad. In a war torn France, she begins her terrifying journey as a youth sentenced to death and it never lets up. At thirty, she is a widow and a spy. She is working hard to bring Napoleon’s reign to an end. She is an accomplished woman and is well sought out, but she only has dreams of a man from her past. He’s a man that no other can compare to; her boyhood savior.
Monsieur Noir is a man who lost everything when Napoleon’s troops ravished his childhood home. Thrust into the role as protector at the young age of fourteen, he never surrendered and is now top in his field in the service to the crown as a spy. He’s been secretly in the shadows, but now it’s time to show himself to Lady Starling. Can she accept all he’s done in his life and the part he played in hers or will she reject him for leaving her alone?
What a nice change of pace; regency with a side of intrigue. I was engrossed from the first page to the last. Lady Starling was a very interesting heroine and not your normal wall flower. She wasn’t afraid to gather information and put herself out there for her country. She didn’t shy away from danger and is a perfect spy.
Noir was very mysterious. He was standoffish and secretive. I liked it. He didn’t let Starling run over him with her very strong personality and he kept her guessing. They made a great pair and their sexy time was amazing. I really loved that Starling wanted Noir and she didn’t let him back away from her like he tried to. But once she opened his flood gates, BAM, he was a force to be reckoned with. So very sexy!
Ms. DeLand wrote a very exciting tale and developed a marvelous novella. Lady Starling’s Stockings suspense wasn’t too confusing or drawn out, but it did have the right mix for its length. It wrapped up nicely, showing a beautiful future ahead for our hero and our heroine. I love it when a novella comes all together nicely and this one is a winner.
The enigmatic Monsieur Noir has been a ghost for most of Solange's life with only timely rescues as visits. However, circumstances have forced him to reveal his continued existence as her new contact.
With each exchange of intel and lingerie, their harbored desires intensify and while Solange is ready for more, Noir holds back, reluctant because of the dangerous uncertainty of their future. Noir was always there for her at a time when death would have been the only other option, but will be there for her now and in the future?
Sensationally intriguing and erotically fulfilling, Ms. DeLand's story flows like the most delectable silk. A spy with an affinity for lingerie? Yes, please!
"Silk? The blood in her veins raced. Her favorite. Her fetish."
I absolutely loved Ms. DeLand's poetically sensual writing. Just melts in your mouth like chocolate when you read the story.
"Monsieur Noir. You tell me tales with your lips meant for love between my exquisite sheets."
Beauty, intellect, and courage. Solange is a woman confident of the "weapons" she possesses and she isn't afraid to use them against the tyrants of the world. While Noir is the perfect swoon-worthy tall, dark, and handsome hero. He is as devastatingly determined to ferret out the enemy as he is to please while in bed. My favorite historical romance couple by far!
The depth of the characters and the well researched treasonable storyline were delightfully surprising elements to be found in this novella. All in all a very entertaining read, which is my first by Ms. DeLand and I can expect not to be the last. Readers of erotic romance and readers of regency romance should take note of this brilliant tale.
