Publisher's Summary

A blue-eyed innocent on the outside and a shark on the inside, dressmaker Sophy Noirot could sell sand to Bedouins. 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. Turning scandal to the shop's advantage requires every iota of Sophy's skills, leaving her little patience for a big, reckless rake like the Earl of Longmore. The gorgeous lummox can't keep more than one idea in his head at a time, and his idea is taking off all of Sophy's clothes. But when Longmore's sister, Noirot's wealthiest, favorite customer, runs away, Sophy can't let him bumble after her on his own. In hot pursuit with the one man who tempts her beyond reason, she finds desire has never slipped on so smoothly...


What the Critics Say

"Flawless pacing, effervescent wit, and nonstop humor that ranges from subtle to outright hilarious come together in a satisfying, delectably descriptive romp." (Library Journal, Starred Review)

If you want an Earl, you’ve got to be persistent

Based on how the last book ended I imagined the hero to be pursuing the heroine in this book. Not so. She goes as far as getting naked in front of him while changing into her gown. Can’t get any more obvious than that. If I were the Earl, I would have wondered much more than he did about her innocence. The story, however, was still very engaging and her being forward did not detract too much. I can not give this book a 5 star but a gentle 4 suites it well.

Enjoyable series

Three penniless sisters who have survived the terrors in France, grow up and learn the family business of being modistes for the wealthy ladies of the ton. Sophie is the 2nd sister, and she's got all the determination and skills of manipulation that her older sister possessed. To save her business, she sets out the save the reputation of an important customer, and along the way, she falls in love.

I really like the first book in this series, and the 2nd is just as good.
