Publisher's Summary

Lethally charming Simon Blair, Marquess of Lisburne, has reluctantly returned to London for one reason only: a family obligation. Still, he might make time for the seduction of a certain redheaded dressmaker - but Leonie Noirot hasn't time for him. She's obsessed with transforming his cousin, the dowdy Lady Gladys, into a swan. Leonie's skills can coax curves - and profits - from thin air, but his criminally handsome lordship is too busy trying to seduce her to appreciate her genius. He badly needs to learn a lesson, and the wager she provokes ought to teach him, once and for all. A great plan, in theory, but Lisburne has become a serious distraction, and Leonie's usual logic is in danger of slipping away as easily as a silk chemise. Could the Season's greatest transformation be her own? Contains mature themes.

The last sister meets her match

This book was the my least favorite of this series but still an enjoyable listen. Kate Reading provides excellent narration.

Our couple is well matched. The storyline seemed a bit more of a formula for this book after listening to the first two books.

Glad that the next book will focus on Clara who we met in the first book. I am looking forward to it and have it preordered.

Not the best of the series

I really wanted to give this 3.5 stars but unfortunately that is not possible with Audible. I enjoyed the first book okay and found the second not satisfying but this book, though it had a few good scenes, it was not very gripping. There is much too much “He said” “she said” in the book. After a while it gets very irritating. The only reason I decided to purchase this book was because of great Amazon as well as Audible reviews. I thought perhaps this book will be more engaging, but I was wrong. There really was no pull to draw you in as a listener/reader. The suspense added was weak and short lived. Overall if you just like to read HR and do not mind a weak story, then this can be an ok read, but when there are books like Lessons in French, why spend your credit on this one?
