Eloisa James reads...

Lord Perfect
by Loretta Chase
I think Loretta Chase is one of the very best writers we have: Her characters are idiosyncratic and interesting, and her stories are sensually delicious. LORD PERFECT is the story of a man who has it all in spades, and knows it. Benedict Carsington is an earl, and perfect in every way (he never even sweats -- just disregard that picture on the cover!). Bathsheba Wingate is a nightmare, from his point of view: She's from a family of rascals, her daughter's an obvious hoyden, and she's far too...too tempting -- especially in the bath, given her biblical name. Of course Benedict gets tempted. Of course, he succumbs. Here's my point, though. We certainly have romance writers who can create sizzling sensuality and unusual characters. But we have very few who can write truly funny, witty prose -- and I think Loretta Chase stands alone when it comes to dialogue. What Bathsheba and Benedict do best (and I suspect those names are supposed to bring to mind Beatrice and Benedick from Shakespeare's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING) is insult each other. I love it!
