    What fabulous romance!

    DRESSED TO KISS is an anthology based around a modiste shop and four of historical romance’s best authors contribute to this excellent book. So far, I have had the time to read only Ms. Linden’s and Ms. Frampton’s novellas, but I cannot wait to read the other two, as the two I’ve read are fabulous! A Fashionable Affair by Caroline Linden Those of you who have read Caroline Linden’s books know what an exceptionally gifted writer she is, you who have not will need to read this novella to truly appreciate the Ms. Linden’s rare talent. Evan Hewes, the Earl of Carmathen, is bent on modernising and beautifying the area where Madame Follette’s shop stands. Madame Follette’s is located near Bond Street, business is doing alright, but could be better. Feliticy Dawkins is managing the modiste shop for her mother, while the latter is away. Madame Follette’s has been in the family for several years, but when Carmathen tells Felicity Dawkins that she must vacate the premises, she bluntly refuses. And so begins one of the most wonderful love stories ever written. 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! No Accounting for Love by Megan Frampton Miss Katherine Grant, whose honourable family is in dire circumstances, needed a paid occupation, and so she is now a paid companion to the spoiled Lady Ephemia, who does however mean well. Katherine is chaperoning Effie on her first season, hoping that the latter doesn’t get into trouble. Effie has gotten into her beautiful blond head that Mr. Henry Dawkins, the bookkeeper for Madame Follette’s, is the man for her. When Effie drags Katherine to the modiste’s, Katherine has a shock: Mr. Dawkins is the hugest man she has ever seen, and by Jove, he does something to her Other Parts as well! Henry has already rebuffed Effie’s advances, but she won’t take no for an answer, while Henry has seen someone who nearly makes him forget his numbers and order! NO ACCOUNTING FOR LOVE is Megan Frampton at her wittiest and most delightful! Henry is a sweet, shy klutz who is totally smitten by the voluptuous Katherine, whose sparkling personality is hidden behind her drab clothes, and they form a wonderful pair. NO ACCOUNTING FOR LOVE is a charming, lovely, sunny story filled with vividly drawn characters, and such glorious fun! Ms. Frampton writes the most fabulous sentences, very matter-of-factly, and you catch yourself laughing hysterically! This romance between a bespectacled, blushing giant and the woman he thinks is one hot number (nudge, wink!) perfectly conveys the dizzying, heady feeling of falling in love and left me sighing and smiling contentedly. Another splendid read by the amazing Megan Frampton! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Dressed to kiss

    Madeline's Hunter novella is super as usual, the others are OK. It makes the whole book ok. I enjoyed Hunter's novella the most.
