By A Customer on 18 Jun. 1998
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a wonderful read. The heroine, Mary, spent years hiding as a housekeeper to Lady Vale'ry. Years ago she has shot dead a man who was trying to rape her brother. And now Lady Vale'ry's relative Sebastian Durant seeks her help to seek a diary stolen by her relatives. And Sebastian was the one witness to her shooting of the panderast years ago.
What makes this book a good read is the taut sexual tension between those two, so taut you can cut it with a knife. Sebastian is a complex man - hardened by years of poverty, ruthless in getting what he wants, he wants Mary. Mary spent years encasing her heart in ice, becoming an utterly practical but ultimately frigid woman. These two are totally wrong yet so right for each other. I admit I had to wince at some of Sebastian's antics, but then again, that was Sebastian. Ms Dodd couldn't write him - and I wouldn't want him to be - any different.
Clever dialogue, humour, and scorching sensuality. A volatile mix too good to be missed by any romance reader.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ten years ago, Guinevere Mary Fairchild, daughter of Charles
Fairchild of the Sussex Fairchilds,killed a man. The only witness to
the incident is Sebastian Durant, Viscount Whitfield, who hates
the Fairchilds. Now, a decade later, Sebastian has found Mary posing as
a housekeeper to his godmother, Lady Valerie. He blackmails her into
helping him retrieve a diary that the Fairchilds apparently possess.
Though he is not sure what type of welcome she will receive from her
estranged family, she agrees to pose as his fiancee in exchange for his
silence.
..... The pair travels together, chaperoned by Lady Valerie, to Mary's
ancestral home, a place she was thrown out of ten years ago by her now
deceased grandfather. All the Fairchilds are filled with dark secrets,
going so far as to blackmail Mary, who realizes by now that she has
fallen in love with her "fiancee." However, chances of his
reciprocating her feelings are slim since he thinks all Fairchilds are
thieves and crooks and her current relatives do not do anything to
change his mind.
...... A WELL PLEASURED LADY is an extremely pleasurable late eighteenth
century Scottish romance that should thrill fans of the historical
romance sub-genre. The lead characters make a superb pair even if they
prefer it to be otherwise. The story line is crisp, loaded with
suspense, and brings historical Scotland to life. Christina Dodd is one
of the most dependable writers of historical romance and her current
tale is a grand slam home run.

This is the last book by Christina Dodd that I will read unless I hear for a fact that she has improved her craft back to the excellence of intelligent & entertaining romance that I know she is capable of writing. A WELL PLEASURED LADY is a juvenile romance with a silly story, non-existant humor and shallow characterization. It appears that Ms Dodd's intent is to showcase a few titilating sexual scenes which are as empty as the rest of the book.

I have only recently read a few of Ms. Dodd's books. While I have found them somewhat entertaining they are not as tightly plotted as you would hope from a writer with mulitple books to her credit. I found her focus in this book on "forcing" her heroine to do specific unpalatable things particurlarily hard to take. There seems to be more violence and overtones of rape in the book then I am generally comfortable with. I found myself thinking the heroine needed a lawyer and a restraining order rather than a marriage to the hero.

A Well Pleasured Lady is a book I highly recommend to those readers who are mostly attracted by the hot scenes and less by the sweet romance. The plot is a little too unrealistic at some points, but overall the book is well worth reading.
