Silk Is for Seduction ~~ Loretta Chase


Description
Silk Is for Seduction by Loretta Chase
From the Design Book of Marcelline Noirot:
The allure of the perfect gown should be twofold:
ladies would die to wear it .. .
and gentlemen would kill to remove it!

Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirot is London's rising star. And who better to benefit from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in London; the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the future duchess's patronage means prestige and fortune for Marcelline and her family. To get to the lady, though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose standards are as high as his morals are...not.

The prize seems well worth the risk. This time, though, Marcelline's met her match. Clevedon can design a seduction as irresistible as her dresses; and what begins as a flicker of desire between two of the most passionately stubborn charmers in London soon ignites into a delicious inferno . . .and a blazing scandal.

And now both their futures hang by a thread of silk…

Silk is For Seduction Loretta Chase

Loretta Chase has done it again! She gives us a tale of three sisters, proprietors of Maison Noirot, ladies dressmakers. Each sister has her own ability, Marcelline design, Sophia writing and Leonie organization. There shop is successful but not “de rigueur” for Ton. They want to be the best. They read in the scandal sheets the Duke of Clevedon will be returning to town expecting to marry the girl he grew up with, Lady Clara Fairfax. Clara has little fashion since and the sisters call her the Dowdy Duchess. They know if they could dress her, there shop would be much in demand.

The duke Clevedon has been on the continent for three years. He has a somewhat commitment with Clara since childhood. Gervaise Angier, the Seventh Duke of Clevedon became the ward of the Marquess of Warford. His mother and little sister killed in a carriage crash leaving his father, who was driving, to throw his life away.

The sisters know they get the order for her wedding dress, all London would follow. So off to Paris Marcelline goes to catch the Dukes eye and convince him his intended needs there help. A great plan except the sisters hadn’t counted on the Duke.

Start reading and be prepared to not put it down till finished. It’s that good.
