I m surprised to see this book referred to as paranormal romance I happen to dislike paranormal and was disappointed when Christina Dodd began to write about shape shifters etc so feel compelled to defend this delicious historical romance A Well Favored Gentleman has a great deal in common with Dodd s delightful and steamy Governess Brides series than with her paranormal series Yes there is a touch of myth and magic here inspired by local lore but the story doesn t really hinge on this Rather the selkie legend adds to the atmosphere of a particular place and time This next part is SPOILERISH but only to the extent that might help readers who dislike paranormal choose not to miss out on this book for the wrong reason If the well favored gentleman of the title is exceptionally beautiful charming and determined not to be separated from his chosen mate maybe it s because he s descended from a long ago doomed union between a human and a selkie the irresistibly enchanting sea creature of Celtic coastal mythology Dodd s story doesn t hinge on our believing in the myth It s just a magical idea that happens to parallel certain aspects of the Hh relationship Selkies in the authentic myth not invented by Dodd as a basis for her novel were enchanted seals who could live briefly as human beings of ethereal beauty In order to keep a selkie as his wife the man who fell in love with her would have to play a cruel trick stealing and hiding her seal skin so she couldn t return to the sea When the bad boy hero of A Well Favored Gentleman uses less than honorable methods to secure his bride there is an implicit relationship between his behavior and the act of the long ago male ancestor who tricked captured wed loved and finally lost a magical selkie bride That s pretty much the extent of this novel s paranormal influence a poignant and bittersweet backstory that makes us long for an HEA This book and it s companion novel A Well Pleasured Lady both can stand alone are among my favorites in a long history as a fan of Christina Dodd s sexy witty and beautifully crafted historicals Even when her bad boy characters behave abominably they can t uite hide the intrinsic goodness at their core And instead of making us loathe them until some Big Misunderstanding is resolved Dodd redeems her male protagonists in time so that we can enjoy seeing their women enslave them in return Recommended especially to fans of Connie Brockway s historicals I think Dodd and Brockway have done a book or two together their styles are complementary and both excel at gentle humor sharp repartee and luscious sex scenes
