This novella was simply delightful. I'll admit to being shallow and mainly buying it because the title was so appealing, but I have read and previously enjoyed a few of Tessa Dare's full-length novels so it was worth the very small price tag.
Immediately, I was struck by how very clever the writing in this book was. I read it in Kindle format, and the number of "highlighters" - other people marking a passage in a novel as significant - was higher than any I'd ever seen in another romance novel. The author has a habit of sneaking truths in dialogue that catch you off-guard and immediately build character. Take this example that comes from Harry when Eliza suffers grief:
"You've seen that all the joy and beauty of the world is fragile. Just bright daubs of paint on the surface of an eggshell. Now you'll reach for it more cautiously. No more wild grasps at glory. It's that innocence you're mourning."
And from Eliza, at a flirtatious moment:
"It's a funny thing about suspicions, Mr. Wright. All too often, they're just vain hopes in disguise."
Little statements, caught in dialogue, but snatching at truths about life and growing up and understanding these characters.Read more ›
At the wedding of her eldest sister, she meets Mr J. Harrison Wright, who immediately recognises in her a kindred spirit. Their verbal exchanges sparkle and are charged with attraction from the get-go, and Harry is just dreamy. Not only is he handsome, he's clever and insightful, amusing and tender; and although Eliza is drawn to him, his reputation is such that association with him could further damage her chances of making her début.
The story follows their meetings across the four years of their acquaintance, and shows their relationship progressing through fun and tragedy into a deep and abiding love. It's warm, sexy and touching - a perfect way to spend a few hours on a cold, grey afternoon.
I love to read Tessa Dare' s books - am trying to buy them all - nearly there!
Check this out, you won't be disappointed.
