Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: Great sequel to watin great series! Is there anything you would change about this book? She’s one of those characters sxandal 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.
Gorgeous, stubborn Esme Brentmor, daughter of a disgraced lord, is used to a wild, dangerous life among the tribes of Albania, to whom her father is the legendary, controversial Red Lion whose death she’s courageously vowed to avenge – even if it leads to her own.

The romance is satn and the tale is amusing, if a little more shallow than I was in the mood for.
Readers willing to suspend disbelief will enjoy this book tremendously; those who like their fiction grounded in gritty reality will not. May 01, Dija rated it it was ok Recommends it for: This book is one of those duds. She has a magical, somewhat whimsical way of writing which makes me smile and enjoy the story so much more. Sophia is the second of the Noirot sisters, however is the kingpin in promoting her dresses and can turn any situation into her advantage.
As they journey after Clara, they move from lust to something scarily close to love; both journeys are well-written and fun to follow. It reads like a fairy tale written for grown-ups: Page upon page of clothes’ descriptions that looked positively hideous when I envisioned them in my head are just one of the many things I hated reading about in Scandal Wears Satin.
A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more.

But then at a crucial moment in a chaee where she’s set on by 5 drunk youngsters, Longmore has to save her, and then when he’s trying to go after them to beat them to a pulp, she then sits there in the middle of the corridor, pounds the floor, and cries. It is everything I have come to expect from Ms Chase — funny, sharp, witty, imaginative, entertaining and romantic. All the clothing details, which were vividly gorgeous in Silk Is For Seductionare tedious in this one.
The Dressmakers 4 books. One needs to be able to dress without help, scandsl necessary. Unfortunately there is a LOT of “he said” “she said” during conversations. That just wouldn’t happen.
