Using the setting of the maiden voyage of the Titanic takes a degree of courage on the part of any author and in this case it paid off. I was delighted to find a fresh slant on the well-known events of the tragic voyage.

Warning - portions of plot revealed!!! Unfortunately I purchased the book on the basis of other reviews. I was so disappointed that I spent even $4.99 for it. I really felt like she took the 1997 movie script and rewrote it with a happy ending. I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes in frustration with this story. From the conversation about not enough life boats, to the fact that that the "new money" kindly mother just "happened" to purchase a gown for a spiteful neighbors daughter that was too small and how it would just fit our plucky, beautiful herione who could then join the haughty folks in the first class dining room with her head held high... She even jumped out of the lifeboat as it was decending to be with her love - I am surprised she didn't name the lovers Rose and Jack. I would not recommend this book at all.

The more Titanic-based stories I read, the more they sound alike. Anyone wishing to write a Titanic story truly has most of their work done for them as the facts of the event are never-changing. In Titanic Affair by Amanda Grange we have another of these romances set against the backdrop of the tragic Titanic maiden voyage. This particular book draws heavily on the 1997 movie.

Emilia Cavendish who grew up in a wealthy family only to lose everything when her parents died and she was sent to live with a relative. She is bound for Ireland where she is to live with her godmother. As fate would have it, the woman who should have been onboard the ship could not make the trip so offers the ticket to Emilia’s godmother who sends it to her. It is for first-class passage; Emilia is running away from Lord Montmorencey who is determined to have her – if not as his wife then any way he can. To that end he sends his henchman, Barker, in pursuit of Emilia. Barker actually kills a passenger on the docks and steals a steerage class ticket thus allowing him to follow Emilia on board the ship. Think of Emilia as the Jack Dawson character from the movie; Montmorencey is Cal Hockley; Barker is Lovejoy (Cal’s henchman).

Carl Latimer (aka Rose from the movie) is the self-made American millionaire. He is traveling with his ailing mother and her companion. Since the death of his father, his mother’s health has taken a downward turn and even the finest European doctors can do nothing for her but prescribe rest and medication. When Carl learns of Emilia’s lavish accommodations, including a private and enclosed promenade area, he tries to buy those accommodations from her at a handsome price. He feels his mother might do better with some fresh air without the worry of crowds. But he meets his match in Emilia when she flatly turns down his request.

Emilia sets off to explore as much of the ship as possible before she is to disembark in Queenstown and finds herself lost in the maze of corridors on the steerage decks. And when she runs into Barker who is determined not to lose her again, she fears for her life. She ultimately escapes him and runs up on deck and directly into the arms of Carl Latimer who is only too happy to rescue her. Of course they are bound to fall in love. As the story progresses, we are treated to several scenes that seem to have been lifted directly out of the movie. I won’t go into them here as anyone who has seen the movie will instantly recognize them. The only difference here from the movie is that both characters, Emilia and Carl, survive the disaster.

An engaging story for those die-hard Titanic fans interspersed with facts and well-known public figures. The writing style is straightforward and the characters aren’t as well-developed as one would hope but the story comes across nonetheless. Descriptions of the ship are detailed and one can still hear the strains of the music and the genteel laughter that emanated from the dining salon.

The title TITANIC AFFAIR is misleading. It is a historical romance, but there is no sexual affair of any kind. It is wonderfully tame. That said, TITANIC AFFAIR is a well-written, very enjoyable book. I really liked it.

Emilia Cavendish is leaving London in a real hurry because she is being pursued by two unscrupulous--and dangerous--men. Having been provided a first-class ticket from her godmother in Ireland, she races to the fabulous boat just before its maiden voyage, all the while being sure she's escaped the terrible men.

Upon getting settled in her luxurious, albeit free, state room, it is quickly made clear that the tall, dark, handsome and very rich Carl Latimer intends to pay her good money to swap rooms with her because hers is larger and has a balcony so that his ailing mother can be more comfortable. Hmph! I don't think so! And from there, it is on. But she soon learns her escape may not have been a clean one, and she may need the help of Latimer, as well as having to fight off what she's feeling for him in her heart.

The finale is, naturally, the sinking, but the conclusion will surprise you. It isn't very long, but it isn't a novella either. Just a good length. Also, the author definitely did their homework for the facts; it's very realistic. I recommend this to any of my gal readers who love a good, clean, historical romance.

To use the name of famous TITANIC and build a romantic story around the great ship is a real enterprise. The author brings before the reader's eyes, the grandeur of the list Titanic, it size, and the calamitous scenes when it sinks.
The plot is simple -- self made rich guy, who is being targeted by many, meets a poor girl who happens to travel in a state room by sheer chance, falls in love, get separated due to the sinking and then gets reunited. Yes, not much of a plot, but Amanda Grange has used her imagination and written an interesting Romance.
The scenes from the famous movie Titanic keeps flashing as you turn the pages of this book.
Enjoyed it thoroughly and recommend for relaxing with as book.

This was a good love story about two people who meet on the Titanic. The young lady of the story is trying to run away from a man who wants her. She is a working-class lady and she meets a rich a powerful man on board the ship. There are two villains in this story and the problems they caused made for grand reading. I really liked the story and unlike the most book of the Titanic I have read this does have a happy ending. Looking for a good love story this is the one to download.

Love anything to do with the Titanic. Was secretly hoping the ship didn't go down. The title can be misleading as there was no affair. Commoner Emilia was able to use another's ticket on the Titanic. Running from a bad man, she safely boards. Lucky to have a nice stateroom, rich Carl begs her to give it up for his mom with failing health. She won't let him have it. They keep running into one another and her feelings toward him change. You know the fate of the ship. The question is, will these young lovers survive or forever mourn ones death?
