What Not to Bare Cover

What Not to Bare
by Megan Frampton

Publisher: Loveswept
Publish Date: October 14th, 2013
Genre: Historical Romance
EBook/Paperback, 275 pages

Book Description:
In Megan Frampton’s witty historical romance, a woman is judged by her gown, and a man by his reputation—until both are shed in one sexy moment of seduction.

Lady Charlotte Jepstow certainly knows how to make an impression—a terrible one. Each one of her ball gowns is more ostentatiously ugly than the one before. Even she has been forced to wonder: Is she unmarried because of her abysmal wardrobe, or does she wear clashing clothing because she doesn’t want to be pursued in the first place? But when Charlotte meets Lord David Marchston, suddenly a little courtship doesn’t sound so bad after all.

David will be the first to admit he’s made some mistakes. But when he gets yanked from his post by his superiors, he is ordered to do the unthinkable to win back his position: woo his commander’s niece. If David wants his life back, he must use his skills as a negotiator to persuade society that Charlotte is a woman worth pursuing, despite her rather unusual “flair” for color. But David does such a terrific job that he develops an unexpected problem, one that violates both his rakish mentality and his marching orders: He’s starting to fall in love.

Lynn’s Review:
Charlotte Jepstow and Emma Clarkson are talking about doing a favor.  Charlotte gives the reader a hint as to why she dresses the way she does.  David Marchston is bored and then he meets Charlotte’s mother and his life changes.    Her uncle also knows David and he has a favor to ask.

Our author starts each chapter with some type of fashion hint.  I get the impression that Charlotte’s mother is jealous of her because she keeps beating her down – kind of like an evil stepmother.  This is a society where people don’t like others that are different – you are based on your outer appearance.

If Megan were to turn this book into a movie, her Charlotte character reminds me of one of our student workers in the library that I work at.  She recently passed away but Emilee is Charlotte.  She had a smile that would just light up the room she was in.  She wore hair chalk and I loved her fashion choices – she was an individual that offered no apologies for what she looked like.  It’s what made her unique – just like Charlotte.

I love how Charlotte wants to please herself first.  We must love ourselves before others can.  She would fit perfectly in today’s society.  Charlotte would be what we consider to be a trendsetter.  She’s not afraid to ask questions.

Megan also made me glad that I didn’t grow up in that time period – I’d be telling my mother to go take a flying leap somewhere.  She also left me curious about Emma’s story – I’ll have to hope that Megan gives it to the reader later.  And also how the fashion column got its start.

This is a true romance – Megan shows that some romances take both time and energy.  Our chosen paths sometime change unexpectedly especially once we’ve found “the one”.  And then there are times when our heads haven’t caught up with the heart.  This has it all and you’ll have a hard time putting it down until you’ve gotten to the very end.  If historical romances are your thing then this is a book that should be toward the top of that list.

Of course the marquess is far from perfect husband material. Although he is exceedingly handsome, with a perfect, strong body, chiseled jaw, and piercing green eyes, Alasdair is also too fond of opium, preferring delirium to reality. Still, he has come to Mary’s aid, and now she intends to return the favor. She will show him that he is not evil, just troubled. Mary was a damsel in need of a hero, but Alasdair’s plan is shortsighted. He never foresaw her desire to […]
