Summary

When she was a poor country girl in a hand-me-down dress, Rosamund saved the Duke of Swanhaven from the brink of despair, only to fall in love with him. Now a celebrated mannequin for an exclusive London dressmaker, her glamorous life is empty without the man to whom she gave her heart. Can a beastly duke and a beautiful mannequin ever find a fairy tale ending?

Ooh La La

Another great book by SR. Although storyline mimics SpinsterI still enjoyed reading it. Both stories have one character from the nobility although not accepted in that world, a rival the hero becomes friends with, the couple gets accepted into the Ton’s bosom after clearing their names and in both books the issues get solved at the end of the book in a matter of about 5 minutes. Here there are a couple of evil Cinderella sisters thrown in as the rivals as well. Looking at all the similarities one may say why should I read it the? Well because although there are similarities the story is still completely engaging. Two thumbs up for me.

A Wonderful Story!

Lonely orphan Rosamund is living with her aunt and uncle and three cousins in a small village outside London. She's treated like a maid in a household that should be her loving home. When her cousins leave for London to attend the season, Rosamund is sent to work for a neighbor, the Dowager Duchess of Swanhaven. The Duchess's grandson suffered a loss, and his grief and pain are overwhelming. As Rosamund works to draw him out of his misery, she begins to lose her heart to the Duke.

I love a good fairy tale and Regency romance mash up! This one had subtle references to Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, with a dash of the Secret Garden. It was a sweet clean romance with two lovable main characters. Aubrey called himself a Beast, but it's not his appearance or his manners that made him one, but the deep torment from losing his family in such a tragic way. Rosamund was a true Beauty inside, and was the perfect person to bring him back to life, spurring him on with alternating charm and slight digs. I liked that they didn't instantly fall in love, but grew to respect each other over time.

I absolutely love books about dressmaking and the outfits women wore in that era, and the second half was full of those details. Although I've read books from the dressmaker's point of view, I've never read about a living mannequin before. It was an interesting spin on the usual Regency balls. It was well written and kept me laughing at the sparring between Aubrey and Rosamund, and Aubrey and Joe. A wonderful story!

I loved the narration, Stevie Zimmerman performed a different voice for each character and they were a perfect fit. She always makes listening a pleasure. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
