One thing about Loretta Chase; she NEVER disappoints. Her historic romances are more than the words imply. She is witty and her humor is so subtle….you must pay attention or you’ll miss the nuances.
“Have you any idea what my wife and her sisters have been through these last months, while you and Swanton idled abroad?” Clevedon said. “While your cousin was in Venice murdering the English language–“
“I shouldn’t call it murder, ” Lisburne said. “Flesh wounds, no more. You give him too much credit. And it was in Florence that he composed his latest batch of verse.”
Her characters are rich and full. And they appear in other books which makes a reader want to come back for more. She takes you to London, in the 1800’s; the sounds, the smells, the sights. With every book, she teaches the reader about what it was like then to be a woman, sometimes a woman without a livelihood or means to support herself. I always learn something from her fiction…this time, dressmaking and fabrics of that time.
Release date ~~ June 24th
‘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.’ (amazon.com)
