9780062100320: Vixen in Velvet (The Dressmakers Series)

From the Diary of Leonie Noirot: The perfect corset should invite its undoing . . .

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's 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?

About the Author:

Loretta Chase has worked in academe, retail, and the visual arts, as well as on the street—as a meter maid—and in video, as a scriptwriter. She might have developed an excitingly checkered career had her spouse not nagged her into writing fiction. Her bestselling historical romances, set in the Regency and Romantic eras of the early nineteenth century, have won a number of awards, including the Romance Writers of America's RITA®.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Nothing is more important to Leonie Noirot than Maison Noirot, the London dress shop Leonie owns with her two sisters. Leonie spends her every waking moment balancing the ledgers and thinking of ways to keep the shop in the black. Securing new clients is one way to keep Maison Noirot one step ahead of the competition, and giving Lady Gladys Fairfax a much-needed fashion makeover will demonstrate to the rest of the ladies in the ton the superiority of Maison Noirot’s designs. The only wild card in Leonie’s otherwise carefully calibrated plan is Glady’s cousin, Simon Blair, the marquess of Lisburne. Whichever way Leonie turns, the sinfully sexy nobleman seems to be constantly underfoot, distracting Leonie with some nonsensical ideas about all work and no play. With her gorgeously rendered prose, flawless sense of characterization, and rare gift for effortlessly matching sparkling wit and seductive passion, Chase will once again charm readers into swooning with delight. In a world of off-the-rack romance creations, Vixen in Velvet, the latest in Chase’s Dressmakers series, is a bespoke masterpiece. --John Charles
