Little Black Dress
Rating: 5 Cups
Charlotte Hayden is of marriageable age, but to her mother’s disgrace, is seeing her cousin, Ann, married first. Charlotte is not opposed to the idea of a husband, but wants to be in love rather than make a “good match”.
Viscount Shadderly, called Shad by his friends, knows that he must marry in order to produce an heir for his title. He comes to London to find a wife.
Shad and Charlotte meet at the wedding of her cousin, Ann, and his best friend, the Earl of Beresford. Shad is caught kissing Charlotte and therefore must do the honorable thing and marry her. It is a good match, but the surprise comes when they realize that they actually care about one another. Charlotte finds herself worried that Shad has a mistress, and Shad is jealous of Charlotte’s feelings toward his best friend. In the meantime, Charlotte is acting very mysterious, and Shad is out to prove his suspicions true.
Improper Relations is the most delightful book I have read in a long time. The characters are fun, witty, and charming. It is written in the first person as seen through the eyes of both Shad and Charlotte. I love seeing all of the scenes through both of their points of view. Thank you to Ms. Mullany for making me laugh so hard. I learned early on not to eat or drink while reading this book as it might prove detrimental to my computer as well as my health. I cannot say enough great things about this book and I am already itching to get my hands on another book by Janet Mullany.
