Scandal Wears Satin is the second title in Loretta Chase’s Dressmaker series, following Silk is for Seduction. Sophy Noirot is one of three sisters with an exclusive London dress shop Maison Noirot. Their most prominent and valuable customer, Lady Clara, is caught in a compromising situation with an impoverished and unlikeable gentleman and she chooses to run away rather than be joined in a loveless marriage with a fortune hunter. Sophy and Lady Clara’s brother, Earl of Longmore, must join forces to find Lady Clara, avoid any scandal, and find a way to discredit Clara’s suitor so that she is not forced into marriage. As they travel together, Sophy and Longmore discover that they have much in common and friendship grows into love. But can a mere dressmaker marry an Earl? Chase has created engaging, likeable characters with dialog filled with wit and humor. This is a delightful addition to the series.
