highly recommended

Just when I thought I was ready to give up on Black Lace along came this wonderfully entertaining novel. In a genre that can become all too predictable, Angel Strand seems to have bridged the gap between what looked like the heavy constraints (sorry, no pun intended) demanded by this kind of fiction, and the mainstream romantic blockbuster. It reads at times like an 18th century novel, rambling and picaresque, with loads of characters popping on and off the stage. Great characters they are too, with real needs, feelings and desires. The setting is Biarritz in the twenties; there's plenty of colour and atmosphere. Oruela Bruyere is a sort of female Candide, charming, innocent and deliciously sexy. I was both surprised - this really does seem a tad experimental for Black Lace, the sex much less contrived and a natural part of a very lively story - and delighted. Maybe I wont be giving up on this imprint after all. I'll certainly be looking out for more by Angel Strand.
