She usually feels the urgent need to thump Longmore, if not to kill satim, and he gradually realises he has fallen in love with her, even though he is not one for deep introspection or, he believed, deep feelings.
In hot pursuit with the one man who tempts her beyond reason, she finds desire has never slipped on so smoothly Like the first book I listened to in the series, the only character I find annoying listening to is Clara. Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have scancal her unmarried – and more than a little unsatisfied. Overall great sequel to a wonderful series.
June 26, Publication Date: Yes, he started out quite sexist and domineering. It tends to lead sooner or later to either implausible plots or mediorce character connections.
June 26, Publisher: When Longmore’s sister Clara is ruined by a scheming scoundrel who set out to gain her hand and her fortune by foul means, she runs away. Overall, I gave this one 5 out of 5 roses. Each of the sisters is an original and I loved that they use their intelligence as well as their looks to succeed.
What other book might you compare Scandal Wears Satin to and why? One of the best parts of the first book was the relationship between the sisters.
Scandal Wears Satin
For Sophy Noirot and her two sisters, their dressmaking establishment Maison Noirotis not just a business but a passion.
She’ll settle for a roof over her head. Sophy Noirot is the brilliant con-woman keeping Maison Noirot afloat with wit and spunk. Mary Jane Wells Length: I read a reader’s review about Loretta Chase once, and she said something about how it used to take her forever to come out with books, but when it came out, it was an absolute gem. I listened to this series when it first came out; except I skipped this book. Perhaps because Longmore is made out to be a dumb block without sensitivity and feelings, there’s not much angst going on within him before he figures out he’s in love with Sophy.
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 wrars, otherwise why lofetta they have to embark on this mad scheme to “save” Clara.
Works well as a standalone Steam Level: The narration is amazing, Kate Reading is a genius and does the voices so well, each person has a distinct speaking voice. Oh well, maybe it’ll be revealed in the end.
The romance is engaging, the sex scenes are wonderfully steamy and compliment the emotional relationship between the lovers. But Longmore is made out to be a person who doesn’t think about anything at all Selling Maison Noirot’s beautiful designs to aristocratic ladies is a little harder, especially since a recent family scandal has made an enemy of one of society’s fashion leaders.

Aug 18, Nadia rated it it was amazing Shelves: When it comes to saving the Maison Noirot from disaster, I adore how she uses her amazing arsenal of talents — considerable guile, irresistible charm, remarkable literary talents and brilliant disguises — to maximum effect.
It’s a touch little girly whiney shudders. 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.

Scandal Wears Satin (The Dressmakers, #2) by Loretta Chase
Want to Read saving…. As the daughter of a famed author, Isolde Ophelia Goodnight grew up on tales of brave knights and fair maidens.
Whether it was through disguises or lies, Sophy rarely allowed herself to simply be Sophy.
