HASH(0x9d5f6828) out of 5 stars I liked this story 13 Oct. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I Purchased the first part of The Black Stocking Society and thought it was horrible so I didn't expect much, if anything, from this one but it seems that Ms. Girard found her footing with the story of Mary and Edmund. I liked watching Mary and Edmund grow together as well as individuals. I feel like their love was true and fresh. From their meeting to Mary's submissive/passive Trying-to-grow-into-a-big-girl personality to Edmunds domineering I-get-what-I-want take-no-prisoners personality; everything was blended together to make the perfect little underdog urban romance.

Can't wait to read Body Chemistry!

I initally gave this story four stars but upgraded it to five because reading this made up for the first book.
HASH(0x9d5f68a0) out of 5 stars An Excellent Play of Power... 5 July 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I won't give you a summary of the book since the other raters have done that and it can be read above. Instead I want to tell you why this book is special. Dara Girard is an insightful writer with a great sense of humor that comes through in all of her stories. Don't be fooled by the back of the book; though this story appears light hearted and a little unbelievable (ie: The Black Stockings Society), trust me when I tell you that the author can pull it off.

Not only are the characters multi-dimensional, they're real, with real problems, and not-so-perfect families everyone can relate to. The storyline is fun, yet the message is profound, and it's easy to fall in love with Mary and Edmund's story. I can't wait to read the other three books in this mini series. If you're looking for a romance novel with a unique plot, relatable characters, and great dialogue you will not be disappointed. Ms. Girard has a way of creating heroines that must find the inner strength to live life on their terms, without making them appear weak and pathetic. The author has a way of creating interesting male leads that are sexy, passionate, and romantic, without being mushy and over the top. Buy this book and prepare to spend an enjoyable evening reading, laughing, and wishing you were apart of the Black Stockings Society.
HASH(0x9ebdb2a0) out of 5 stars Cowardly Lioness seeks courage 2 July 2008
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mary Reyland is the poster woman for someone to pick on; a victim preferring flight over fight, Mart is used and abused at work and treated even worse in her relationships. Tired of it all, she decides no more crap on the job and no more dates with SOBs who treat her like dirt.

When the Black Stockings Society invites her to join, she initially was going to decline feeling unworthy; but thinking of her vow she decides to wear the power stockings at important business meetings and in her personal life. Edmund Davis decides Mary is perfect to oversee his investment into The New Day Senior Living Community project because he assumes he can pound the mouse into strict adherence to his concept. Instead he is stunned that Mary pushes back and that he likes her pushing back.

Mary is a fabulous lead character as she has a zillion mental issues starting with esteem so low, it can't be measured. Edmund is somewhat cold with his "arctic" eyes, but he is fully developed and arrogant from start to finish. However the first Black Stockings saga belongs to the heroine whose efforts to find a backbone and show some spunk for a change make for an insightful tale as she is the "Cowardly Lion" seeking courage with the wizard being her peers at the society she joined.

HASH(0x9ebdb390) out of 5 stars Little Lamb..Turned Tigress 4 Mar. 2013
By T. Brame - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first in The Black Stocking Society....

Mary was a mousey woman that got stepped on and hardly ever noticed. She had only one true friend; an elderly woman that she helped take care of. The rest of the people in her life were no good people that used her at every turn. Even Edmund when he first saw her set out to use her. Then the stockings arrived. She had no idea what a pair of stockings could do but they changed her life. They created confidence and allowed her to change the way the world saw her. They opened a door to a society that had people in it that wished to support her dreams. Mary didn't believe it but quickly got into the role and never looked back. Edmund was an unexpected but very pleasant bonus for Mary.

Edmund thought he was getting the mouse that he can ignore but Mary showed up and blew him away. It wasn't just the stockings, change in clothes and hair. It was the complete package. He found himself going against what he believed to be in his best interests to help her. Their affair happened so fast and took them both by surprise how easily they fell for one another. Good start to the series...
HASH(0x9ebdb330) out of 5 stars Assertiveness Training 101 24 Jun. 2008
By Reader Woman - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this novel. Dara Girard has a gift of crafting characters and creating stories that pull you so deep into the story you don't want it to end and you're thinking about it long after you've finished the last page. Mary and Edmund are two examples of Girard's awesome gift. Mary used to have a problem saying no. She would be the last person to rock the boat. Edmund counts on her wimpy demeanor to help his project go through without a lot of stress and drawbacks. Neither of them count on an invitation to a select society of women in sexy stockings to change everything. I loved watching Mary come into her own and learn how to value herself. There were so many life lessons in this fun romance that I think anyone who reads it would come away feeling a little more assertive. Edmund is just the kind of hunky alpha hero we all love and the new and improved Mary is just the kind of heroine to bring him to his knees with love. This is a great read and I look forward to the next installments in this hot new series.
