Welcome back. It looks like a very good sentence but as these are words... I already forgot what they mean except for adulate.
I adulate your sentence but I think Anu makes it more difficult every next week. I skipp this one, the actual ones look more familiar. So, Friday.

Excessive pudeur had never afflicted our femme fatale, who, on opening a billet-doux of a risqué bent, settled back into her chaise in simpering, provocative deshabille.

Late because of out of town and out of computer.
A belated French kiss from an English civil servant.

Samuel Pepys' femme fatale was often a maid or a shopkeeper's daughter, for who he would overcome his persistent pudeur and as billet doux would try a caresse risqué which occasionally resulted in the much pursued deshabille.

(so much for history (1633-1703) )

"Purl many rows to make a fey cote the fisc can't touch", was the kind stranger's coze.

That would take a lot of purling, BranShea! -- but I like it!
