Svetlana Yevchenko works for Department 57 and does her job so well she is called on often. Now that she is modeling for Jasper it is harder to keep her feelings from surfacing for everyone to see, especially him. From the negative way Svetlana reacted to the orgies on the yacht, what was most important to her and sharing her body with others was not an option she would choose.

Jasper Lebec, a famous Paris designer by trade and agent at heart knows he is lost when it comes to his feelings for Svetlana. When he tells her of his fate in life she refuses to accept the truth of it and will do whatever it takes to prove him wrong. Now that the assignment is over they have to deal with their feelings for each other and the outcome is more than even they expected.

Topaz Delirium is so beautifully written that I wanted the story to last much longer. The characters and designs were described in so much detail it was hard not to see them in your mind’s eye. There was hot, hot sex and plenty of action going on throughout the entire story; you may want to take a break. This story keeps you reading, trying to figure out who was the villain is and more importantly, the heroes who saved others from harm. Lynne Connolly writes of love, sex and drugs that keep you going from one emotion to another throughout the book. She brings alive each character and the vanity that some of them had was typical of the fashion world.

Thank you for a lovely review!
My mother worked in the fashion industry all her working life, as a cutter, grader and sample machinist (she produced the samples and created a commercially viable garment from a designer original). I had to use her experience!
I was saddened recently to hear of the death of Yves St. Laurent, known to everyone in his atelier as Maitre Yves. A gentle man with an exacting, precise science who could sit down at a machine and produce a garment as well as any of the people who worked for him.
