  1. So, so disappointing One of the biggest let downs of the year and my expectations weren t even that high.There are three three main characters in Scandal Wears Satin Harry, Sophy, and Clara 1 Harry was a chauvinistic pig and an asshole, had the intelligence of a donkey and the tact and subtlety of an elephant, was or less always hard, and did nothing but lust after Sophy 2 Sophy had the personality of an immature child, believing herself to be so much than she really was While she rarely annoy [...]

  2. One needs to be able to dress without help, if necessary You must be deuced flexible, he said.Wrong thing to say.She went quiet and his mind starting painting pictures Just in case he wasn t heated enough already.For Sophy Noirot and her two sisters, their dressmaking establishment Maison Noirot, is not just a business but a passion Three years ago they arrived from Paris with little than their dressmaking talents Now having secured Lady Clara, the Earl of Long s sister as their foremost client [...]

  3. An easy 4.5 stars What a fun book The banter between Long hero and Sophie heroine was hilarious This was the classic tale of the whip smart girl and the gorgeous hunk who seems incredibly thick but is actually not that thick at all Yes, there was a ton of clothes talk, but I loved the whole concept of Maison Noirot and the dressmakers I am not particularly into fashion per se, but I actually enjoyed the detailed research and wonderful descriptions Don t let that part put you off Both MCs were ch [...]

  4. Perhaps not as good as 1 in the Dressmakers series, but this book is filled with classic Loretta Chase humor, fun characters, and a bit of adventure Yes, Harry is a bit of a dim bulb but he s really quite clever in his own way , and Sophie is a bit of a bossy Bess, but it s lots of fun to watch these two tangle And please tell me that somehow, some way, poor Lady Clara will wind up with her own HEA.Favorite quotes That s what brings in the customers the combination of gossip and the intricate de [...]

  6. Please Note I read the ARC Advanced Reader Copy of this book, therefore, there may be some discrepancies between what I quote and the final version Assume any and all errors are mine because they probably are.The Common Cause If I were less of a catch, she went on, and if it hadn t happened so publicly, with all those people seeing me half undressed, there would be an easier way out You weren t half undressed, Sophy said Your bodice was a little disarranged, that was all Not that it makes a diff [...]

  7. This was great I loved it so much Sophy and Harry just seemed so perfect, as individuals and as a couple I loved how their feelings sort of sneaked up on them, it wasn t so obvious And their adventures and mishaps and everything oh it was just great The only thing I don t quite get is the whole DeLucey thing and about little Lucie s eyes Oh well, maybe it ll be revealed in the end.

  8. My ratings 4.5 out of 5 starsScandal wears Satin is the second book in the series Dressmakers by Loretta Chase Sophy is the second Noirot sisters who have come over to England from France to establish themselves as the primary dressmakers on London catering to the wealthy and aristocracy 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 It was implied that Lord Long had a tender for Sophy who seemed to have brushed it a [...]

  9. I WAS SO INTO THIS YOU GUYS Sophy Noirot is the brilliant con woman keeping Maison Noirot afloat with wit and spunk Harry Fairfax, Earl of Long, is the sexy buffoon who haunts people s pants They have chemistry which ignites into emotions when they go galavanting off across England to rescue Harry s little sister, Clara 1 THE HUMOR I needed this dry sass fest of a book I needed Sophy and Harry belligerently breaking up with one another while simultaneously making love I needed them arguing about [...]

  11. Loved it, loved it One of my favorite Chase pairings supposedly thick headed hero with brilliant heroine Their banter is sparkly and sexy and also very emotional LC has an incredible knack for making the reader laugh at the same time as she s pulling on the heart strings Nobody does it better And nobody but nobody can paint emotional depth during a sex scene like LC, either Masterful.

  12. Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsShe gave him a look of pure exasperation He was familiar with that look People turned it on him all the time Her version, though, was precious Why has no woman stabbed you before now, I wonder she said I have quick reflexes, he said Oh what a sweet hero and sharp, resourceful heroine I read this book immediately after finishing book 1 in this series, SILK IS FOR SEDUCTION, and this one took a little bit to really get into I had just come off getting to know [...]

  13. Oh so disappointing.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 Then, maybe at the behest of her publisher, she was forced to churn out books, and some of them turned into real duds.This book is one of those duds.Forget Lord of Scoundrels or Lord Perfect both of which were extremely well written Even the first book of this series, Silk is for Seduction, reads [...]

  14. Read my review on Demon Lover s Books and MoreThis is my first Loretta Chase novel, and while I can definitely say it won t be my last, I will also add that I was slightly disappointed I think I expected from her I almost didn t finish it twice At one point, my ARC expired I was about halfway through, and finally getting into it and I had to get the book myself just to find out what happened Lady Clara is compromised by Lord Adderley, a bankrupt jerk who took advantage of Lady Clara on purpose [...]

  15. Rele da en un d a.En realidad, si no fuera por GR, pensaba que no la hab a le do Coincido plenamente en mi anterior review que est m s abajo Est bien pero con las consideraciones mencionadas Anterior review Me gust , una historia de amor muy dulce entre un libertino no muy avispado y una modista inteligente y de acci n Bastante tensi n sexual antes de concretar, me gusta Pas un buen rato.Pero.Al igual que en el primero de la serie Modistas, no me cierra que estas chicas tengan tanta preocupaci n [...]

  16. It s Monday morning, and I could use a few laughs Depend upon Loretta Chase to provide them.Kate Reading does her usual excellent job with this one It can t have been easy, but she managed to find a distinctive voice for each of the Noirot sisters.

  17. 3.5 starsI liked this one exactly as much as the first in the series and for exactly the same reasons I also felt that it started out kind of weak but the I read, the I liked it.

  18. I m a huge Loretta Chase fan Her books are always a delicious combination of sexy heroes, strong but feminine heroines, fun plots and rib tickling humour I loved Silk is for Seduction, the first book in her Dressmakers series, and so I had high expectations of the second book, Scandal Wears Satin.There s one thing certain, if you re feeling miserable when you start reading this book, you re sure to have a big grin on your face by the time you get to the end It is everything I have come to expect [...]

  19. 3.7 starsWhile Scandal Wears Satin was by no means perfect, it was a vast improvement over Silk Is for Seduction, especially in regards to the hero The fact that I adored the main couple together and as individuals this time around helped a great deal as well I really enjoyed this book Sophy was incredible Mad, brilliant, clever and with a flair for the dramatic, it was Sophy who thought up the rather ingenious ways in which to not only save her and hers sisters beloved dress shop, but also Long [...]

  20. This is a 3.5 rounded up Very fluffy Love the banter between the leads and the story arc was pretty basic There was one element that wasn t resolved, IMO, but since there s another book to come I think then I m hoping that will be dealt with there The romance is nice and the tale is amusing, if a little shallow than I was in the mood for This is the second book in the Dressmakers series.

  21. Four stars because I ve been reading some duds recently, and it was so comforting to read a book with a real if slightly frivolous plot , terrific dialogue and a strong sense of historical period Be warned that there is a LOT of clothes porn in this and some unlikely human activity too The plot kicks off when Dastardly And Impoverished Lord Adderley lures Naive But Rich Lady Clara on to a balcony and dislodges vital decorative lace covering interesting bits of NBRLC DAILA has arranged for the pa [...]

  22. Really enjoyed this as an audiobook terrific narration by Kate Reading and for my first Loretta Chase, was delighted with her style and wit I definitely plan to read of her books.

  23. I love Loretta Chase Lord of Scoundrels, Lord Perfect, and Mr Impossible are 3 of my absolute favorite HR s, and I really liked Silk is for Seduction, too Unfortunately, this one just didn t come close to those for me It s not bad really, it isn t but the plot and character development isn t what I was expecting I just didn t find it plausible that Sophy would get so involved in Clara s troubles, especially the part where she and Long go off alone to try to find her That just wouldn t happen I t [...]

  24. Para empezar quiero aclarar que Loretta Chase es una de mis autoras favoritas y seguir si ndolo, o sea, es super recomendable.Bueno, no parece la t pica novela de romance hist rico que suelo leer Es decir, cuantas veces hemos le do la t pica novela con la t pica patito feo, o belleza despampante, o aquellos protagonistas con el t pico pasado tormentoso, ex soldado, super oscuro, super misterioso no es que ya no me gusten, pero me alegra encontrar novelas como estas, que son un soplo de aire fres [...]

  25. Scandal Wears Satin3.5 StarsSophy Noirot and her sisters have put their hearts and souls into making their dress shop the toast of the ton Much of their success is due to the patronage of Lady Clara Thus, when their influential yet headstrong client falls prey to a fortune hunter, Sophy is forced to work with her brother, Lord Harry Long, to save Clara s reputation Now if only they can keep their minds on the prize and their hands off each other Long and Sophy s romance is engaging than Marcell [...]

  26.

  27. Oooh this was even better than the first one the first one was great too , it had its own problems but it was a tidy little fun book to read I really liked the hero, he appeared to be a big daft lug He was so refreshing I hadn t enjoyed a HR hero this much in a really long time.

  28. Mais uma leitura encantadora acerca das irm s Noirot, que neste segundo volume nos d a conhecer as aventuras da bela Sophia, que est disposta a tudo para impedir a fal ncia da Maison Noirot uma hist ria divertida e sensual, com muitos vestidos mistura.
