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.
Theres one thing certain, if youre feeling miserable when you start reading this book, youre 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 from Ms Chase — funny, sharp, witty, imaginative, entertaining and romantic. Maybe the plot is far-fetched but it is pure entertainment from start to finish.
In most romances it is usually the hero who takes centre stage but, in Scandal Wears Satin, Sophy is definitely the star of the show in my opinion. But, occasionally, she has moments of insecurity and uncertainty and I love that vulnerable side of her.
It makes her even more lovable. When it comes to saving the Maison Noirot from disaster, I adore how she uses her amazing arsenal of talents — considerable guile, irresistible charm, remarkable literary talents and brilliant disguises — to maximum effect. Streams of words about ribbons and bows and lace and pleats here and gathers there. No thread goes unmentioned. He has a great sense of humour which is a big plus in my book. He never professes to be an intellectual giant but he is far more intelligent than he gives himself credit for.
Sophy was too experienced in deceit to show her feelings. He also considers how worried his parents must be and sends a message to let them know she is safe. His mind went hazy then, images of muslin and lace underwear strewed themselves about his brain, and somewhere in that dishevelment was a blue-eyed angelic devil, mostly unclothed.
He waved a hand, waving the images away. He was only beginning his siege, and he knew — he could always tell — he faced a very trick fortress. All sorts of hidden passages and diversions and booby traps. The clothing is definitely a major player in this book. Ms Chase describes everything in gorgeous detail, the outrageous hats and the wondrous confections of gowns.
Loretta Chase . . . In Other Words
Scandal Wears Satin The Dressmakers 2 Loretta Chase Prologue Observe his fierce, fighting-cock air; his coal-black gipsy curls; his aristocratic not to call it arrogant expression of countenance—never laid aside, whether he is smiling on a fair dame or frowning on a fawning dun. Harry Fairfax, Earl of Longmore, was on the scene, naturally. He was nothing like his parents, on any count. And she was draped over him, wafting waves of scent. And talking, unfortunately. Longmore wondered where she was this night. But Sophia Noirot had her own mode of invisibility, and she was perfectly capable of inserting her elegantly curved body anywhere she pleased, in the guise of a temporary servant.
