But even he draws the line at running off with his best friend’s bride.
To read more of my reviews please visit my blog at www. She wasn’t charming like Marcelline, and even when she calls the shop the greatest, or whatever, it was bragging rather than stating a fact especially since the shop wasn’t doing so well, otherwise why would they have to embark on this mad scheme to “save” Clara. I find myself continuously squinty-eyed when the hero is an obnoxious buffoon who casts a lady he meets into the slot of mistress instead of the wife.
Harry was a chauvinistic pig and an asshole, had the intelligence of a donkey and the tact and subtlety of an elephant, was more or less always hard, and did nothing but lust after Sophy. How the term “Noirot” is used as an adjective over and over. In addition, the beginning isn’t exciting at all and I found my mind wandering a lot. Harry, Sophy, and Clara.
Didn’t drag on like the first book This was a better read then the first book. George has gambled away his heritage and lives on his considerable looks, charm and wits. When Clara is caught in a tryst with the impoverished Lord Adderly, a hasty engagement ensues. That just wouldn’ I love Loretta Chase.
That being said, I enjoyed their banter filled sex interludes, but that and a gorgeous cover doesnt make up for the lack of an interesting story.
Really great narrators are rare as hen’s teeth. She went quiet and his mind starting painting pictures. Audio editions available at above retailers.
Neither thinks they’ll actually have a future together. Is there anything you would change about this book? Acandal is sharp as a tack and very strategic in her thinking.
Scandal Wears Satin — Loretta Chase
And so she’s vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she’s been missing. This is dodgy because Sophy’s motivation is to bring back intact to London Maison Noirot’s best customer and then lure her to spend such huge sums of money in a two-week period that the shop can continue trading.
Then why is he so intrigued by the supposedly faultless Lady Charlotte Hayward? In her teenage years, she continue to write scandla, keep a journal, write poetry and even attempt the Great American Scajdal still unfinished. They’re blaming Sheridan’s three sisters.

Scandal Wears Satin — All About Romance
The book starts with both lovers lusting madly for one another. I love all Loretta Chase books and this “dress maker” series is similar to her others with great character insight and highly entertaining dialog.
This didn’t drag on and on like the first book. There were no interesting adventures, no lovely settings, nothing except Harry being hard, Sophy being dull, and Clara being an imbecile. Like, I could handle the very slight mentions of Marcelline as we’ve already had her book and having past heroines steal the current thunder is kind of a buzzkill.
Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. His mind went hazy then, images of muslin and lace underwear strewed themselves about his brain, and somewhere in that dishevelment was a blue-eyed angelic devil, mostly unclothed.
The DressmakersBook 2 Length: Streams of words about ribbons and bows and lace and pleats here and gathers there. Well, I suppose he didn’t feel especially stupid to me because he was pitted against Sophy, and she felt like a really dumb person — but one who calls herself super smart and comes up with these really stupid ideas without thinking it through.
Steamy Oh but how I adore the way Loretta Chase manages to give us deliciously sensible and pragmatic yet beautiful and enchanting heroines and the delightfully befudd This is a Quickie Review. She’s one of those characters who gets these ideas and then calls herself brilliant for thinking up these ideas, and it just so happens that some of those ideas pan out, BUT they probably wouldn’t have.
Scandal Wears Satin
I just didn’t find it plausible that Sophy would get so involved in Clara’s troubles, especially the part where she and Longmore go off alone to try to find her. She runs off, and Sophy devises a way to bring her back. Don’t know how Ms. There was one element that wasn’t resolved, IMO, but since there’s another book to come I chasd then I’m hoping that will be dealt with there.
Who would the stars be?
The bond between the books in this series wearz, of course, the Noirot sisters of which there are three. Overall great sequel to a wonderful series. View all 20 comments. Four stars wexrs I’ve been reading some duds recently, and it was so comforting to read a book with a real if slightly frivolous plotterrific dialogue and a strong sense of historical period.
Sophy was too experienced in deceit to show her feelings.
Whether it was through disguises or lies, Sophy rarely allowed herself to simply be Sophy. Lady Clara is compromised by Lord Adderley, a bankrupt jerk who took advantage of Lady Clara on purpose because he needs her dowry.
Hugh Philemon Ancaster, seventh Duke of Ripley, will never win prizes for virtue. Tying him up and making him listen to fashion descriptions? The novel, written with Ms. I wanted him to shine forth. They are perfect for each other. Like her sister Scandaal, heroine of the first book in this series, Sophy is independent and resourceful.
