Sweet, old-fashioned romance--no problem with the brogue! 13 Nov. 2002
By Cilla - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have to admit that I am a sucker for old-fashioned, "sweet" romances. This one is definitely a keeper for me, and ranks up there with the best of Mansfield, in my estimation. I didn't have any problem with the Scottish brogue, but that is because I am a lover of all things scottish, and I have read so many books with brogue in them that I already knew a lot of the words. Besides, they were either explained, or easy to figure out from the context. I thought the hero to be a true hero--gentle, warm, funny, and honorable. I liked the fact that he became fond of the heroine's family members, and that they reciprocated his feelings. The heroine was a bit arrogant at the beginning, and the author did a good job of showing how she had her faults revealed to her and how she had a change of heart about things. This book was a "clean" read and reminded me of some of my favorite old-fashioned romances. Definitely going on to my "keeper" shelf after my mom finishes reading it!

Good but not Mansfield's best 6 April 1999
By Avid Reader - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Compared with Mansfield's other books, this one is average. The Scottish brogue in many places diminishes the pleasure of smooth reading. This one is unlike her other books e.g. the Fifth Kiss or The Magnificent Masquerade which would evoke tender, warm or poignant emotions from her readers.Anyway, any book by Mansfield is delightful.
Witty dialog, fiesty hero and heroine. 21 Dec. 2012
By Patricia - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a sweet, lighthearted romance that does not have anything more suggestive than a few fervent kisses that "tingled" the hero's blood. I found the characters to be fun and well developed, both the primary and secondary ones. Both the hero and heroine speak their minds, and most often they clash. This gives us terrific interaction that keeps the reader amused and the story moving along nicely.

The plot is rather simple, but it works. The action takes place in both London and a country estate, mainly during the Fall and Winter months. Nothing is said of Christmas, so this is not a holiday tale. Easily read in an evening, the main story is in the conflict between Theo Fairchild, the indebted young woman who hires MacKenzie to handle her family's financial affairs, and Davie MacKenzie, a Scot who has come to London in order to learn the trade of banking so that he can return to his homeland and open a bank. He is not happy to interrupt his work (and education) at the bank, but once in Theo's home he comes to love her. She has a betrothal of long standing to a Lord, Gerard. Added to the mix is Theo's young brother, Willie, and her sister Pheobe, who is just about to make her come out. Both are done very well.

A fun read, Her Man of Affairs is a lighthearted novel that will amuse.
