Publisher's Summary

“One of the finest romance authors of all time.” (Julia Quinn)

New York Times best-selling author Loretta Chase follows her historical romance gem, Silk is for Seduction (nominated for 2011 Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Regency-Set Historical Romance) with yet another winner. 

This time, Scandal Wears Satin, as the second sister from a somewhat scandalous aristocratic family - the purveyors of one of London’s most fashionable shops - finds passion and a love as sumptuous as the gorgeous gowns she creates. 

Superstar romance author Susan Elizabeth Phillips says Loretta Chase has “a rare talent for creating crackling sexual tension and characters so fresh and compelling that readers won’t be able to forget them.” 

Chase fans, as well as Stephanie Laurens and Julia Quinn listeners, will most assuredly agree - especially when they meet feisty Sophy and the rakish earl whose help (and heart) she enlists in order to win the patronage of a dowager lady.

A Frothy Delight

I enjoyed this installment of the Dressmakers much more than the first one. it is even more enjoyable after reading Dukes Prefer Blondes and knowing what eventually happens with Clara. I love the Dressmaker series because they are full of historical details and have wonderful settings, secondary characters and plots. And L Chase was in very fine form as a writer with this series.

Longmore and Sophie really grew on me with second and third readings. They are so unlike most of her other couples--not carrying huge emotional burdens, just two people dealing with an attraction that turns into love, surprising them both. It was refreshing to read Chase write a simpler, but no less exciting, romance. As usual, she brings depths of feeling to it all and it was very genuine and sweet in the end.

Loretta Chikani aka Chase is simply the best writer of historical romance, hands down, bar none. Her knowledge of the Regency Era puts all other pretenders to the throne to shame. This novel alone is master class in the genre, and it's not even the best in the series.

The great Kate Reading is especially good for the whole Dressmaker series, but this one had her use her French accent too much, which drives me crazy as did the "he said, she said." Hence, I deduct one star. Otherwise, perfection.

I did not like!

This was a dumb story, filled with unexplained undertones. I didn't like it and felt I was wasting my time.

Witty

I didn't think I'd like the Dressmakers trilogy, but I should have known better. The narrator dis a great job capturing the H and even better job capturing the h. Now, on to book 3!

Lighthearted, predictable, slow.

The story may have been better if I wasn’t so annoyed by the amount of times there are “he said, she said”. The narrator is talented and therefore it is clear who is speaking but after almost every piece of dialogue there is a “said”. It was highly distracting. The story is not as good as the first in the series . It is slow and a little repetitive. It has moments of humor and the heroine is fairly well developed. I’m impressed that anyone can produce a story like this .regardless of my personal opinion.

Excellent listening - but WAY too long

Loretta Chase and Kate Reading once again created a masterpiece. LC is a brilliant story teller and just as brilliant at developing complex and likeable characters. KR is just as brilliant at interpreting LC's story and giving life and interest to the characters.

Zzzzzzzzzz boring boring

I like LC and the narrator but this was a fail! What a disappointed, boring, waste of credit.
The story is so dumb, the "he said, she said" is so old in these LC stories. No fun, no connection, zero story other than he grabs her then she pounds with her fists until she smells him, surprise surprise!
