Publisher's Summary

A blue-eyed innocent on the outside and a shark on the inside, dressmaker Sophy Noirot could sell sand to Bedouins. Selling Maison Noirot's beautiful designs to aristocratic ladies is a little harder, especially since a recent family scandal has made an enemy of one of society's fashion leaders. Turning scandal to the shop's advantage requires every iota of Sophy's skills, leaving her little patience for a big, reckless rake like the Earl of Longmore. The gorgeous lummox can't keep more than one idea in his head at a time, and his idea is taking off all of Sophy's clothes. But when Longmore's sister, Noirot's wealthiest, favorite customer, runs away, Sophy can't let him bumble after her on his own. In hot pursuit with the one man who tempts her beyond reason, she finds desire has never slipped on so smoothly...

Most Helpful

Great story, but to much he said, she said

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, there is a lot of talking between the hero and the heroine and halfway through the book I got annoyed by all the dialog distinguished by he said, she said, by the end of the book I was so sick about hearing another he said or she said that I wanted the strangle the editor who let an otherwise entertaining book be made annoying by this. It probably would be bearable in an book you read yourself, in an audiobook it is quite bad.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Lady Clara, because she seemed most real.


Did Kate Reading do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Great job with the men, the women I was not always sure.


Could you see Scandal Wears Satin being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

I do not think it is movie material.


Any additional comments?

I am not ready for the third book of the series as an audiobook, maybe I will read it myself eventually.
