Scandal Wears Satin
My favorite of the series! Whimsical, unpredictable, and fantastical. After encountering so many non-romantic HR’s lately, where there logetta just sex or history, but no real emotional or spiritual elements, it was so good to feel the ROMANCE. It was there that she met a video producer who inspired her to write novels and marry him. I loved Silk is for Seductionthe first book in her Dressmakers scandxl, and so I had high expectations of the second book, Scandal Wears Satin. Unfortunately, the carriage in which she stows away isn’t saving her from ruin.
How the term “Noirot” is used as an adjective over and over.
In this quest Lady Clara would have had a primary role but she somehow gets embroiled in a scandal and is being forced to marry an impoverished fortune hunter. Kathleen Texas, United States He needs an heir – which means he needs a wife. I loved the little historical bits prefacing every chapter, they lent a flavor to the story.
When Clara is caught in a tryst with the impoverished Lord Adderly, a hasty engagement ensues. Devoted fans of Loretta Chase. He has a great sense of humour which is a big plus in my book. A good portion of the story takes place with Longmore and Sophy on the road trying to track down Clara.
I feel like I tire of all HR’s having to be part of a series- I don’t need every single character in a book matched up in satjn sequels. I get a bit tired of authors trying to make heroes overly-complicated.
If only he had a brain. Their banter is sparkly and sexy and also very emotional.
In hot pursuit with the one man who tempts her beyond reason, she finds desire has never slipped on so smoothly. Loved the characters – how can you not when Kate Reading is narrating. Kate Reading does her usual excellent job with this one.
We don’t really know. Again, the narrator does a scandaal job. Did Kate Reading do a good job differentiating each of the characters? 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.
This is a Quickie Review. There were some problems. I think I expected more from her. But when Longmore’s sister, Noirot’s wealthiest, favorite customer, runs away, Sophy can’t let him bumble after her on his own.
He saw her, not the Sophy she presented to the world, or one of her many aliases, but her true and honest self. Recommended for fans of lighthearted historical romance, delightfully charming and sly! Even the first book of this series, Silk is for Seduction, reads so much better. Even stupid people think about their feelings.
Scandal Wears Satin — All About Romance
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. But then at a crucial moment in a hostelry 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.
As I said, he is a man who goes on instinct. It was clear from the start that these two were attracted to each other, but outside of that, I just didn’t feel their connection. 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.
She is so tightly wound that Harry, with his easy-going, devil may care attitude is just what she needs to help her relax and enjoy life. Scandal Wears Satin is written in Loretta Chase’s signature glorious prose, and this is a wonderful second book in The Dressmakers series.
