Scandal Wears Satin — Loretta Chase
I’m very guilty of this when I’m proofreading my own work. He’s the brawn of his rich family. Cancel anytime and keep your audiobooks. Lorretta thinks they’ll actually have a future together.
Something the Noirot sisters excel at. In Silk is for Seduction, we see Marceline get her happy ending but it also hinted at who would be the most likely next couple. She has a magical, somewhat whimsical way of writing which makes me smile and enjoy the story so much more. In her teenage years, she continue to write letters, keep a journal, write poetry and even attempt the Great American Novel still unfinished.
All that manly beauty. Sophie is all biting wit, articulate prose and hidden vulnerability. Love the two together. My favorite part is when Longmore realizes he’s in love. Great sequel to a great series! The reason is because Longmore didn’t come off particularly dumb in the first book. If only he had a brain.
It still frustrated me that he took nearly the whole book to see this incredibly smart and interesting woman as more than what was between her lorstta. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking.
Scandal Wears Satin
To avoid his usual temptations and perhaps even repay the friend who saved his life, he’s exiled himself to a place far from civilization – Derbyshire – in winter! 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. While she rarely annoyed me, I did find myself pitying her a great deal. Other than the silliness of the plot, my main complaint about the book is that Harry’s decency and native astuteness isn’t allowed to contribute to winning the day: Three years ago they arrived from Paris with little more than their saton talents.
Like the first book I listened to in the series, the only character I find annoying listening to is Clara. Lady Clara is compromised by Lord Adderley, a bankrupt jerk who took advantage of Ecandal Clara on purpose because he needs weare dowry. Sattin can’t have been easy, but she managed to find a distinctive voice for each of the Noirot sisters.
It’s best enjoyed after the first book as some of the original characters appear and have small roles. The bond between the books in this series is, looretta course, the Noirot sisters of which there are three. There were no interesting adventures, no lovely settings, nothing except Harry being hard, Sophy being dull, and Clara being an imbecile.
Scandal Wears Satin — All About Romance
But when Longmore’s sister, Noirot’s wealthiest, favorite customer, runs away, Sophy can’t let him bumble after her on his own. Sophy’s dresses, on the other hand, almost always included satin in the description. Sometimes I’m shocked at re-reading what I’ve previously written and find words that don’t even make sense or seem remotely correct. Harry may not be as smart as Sophy but he views the world very clearly, and no matter what scheme Sophy is running, Harry always sees the Sophy behind the act.
Unfortunately there is a LOT of “he said” “she said” during conversations. Also, there’s the fact that their conversations are pretty bird-brained.
Overall, I gave this one 5 out of 5 roses. When a mysterious stranger finds his way into her bedchamber and offers his help in landing a duke, Lady Felicity Faircloth agrees – on one condition.
Perhaps not as good as astin in the Dressmakers series, but this book is filled with classic Loretta Chase humor, fun characters, and a bit of adventure.
That just wouldn’t happen.
