Loretta Chase writes about the third Noirot sister in Vixen in Velvet. Leonie is the business woman of the threesome but no less charming than her more creative siblings. Her head is not quite filled with numbers however. There is still room for thoughts of gods and goddesses like those in the Botticelli that figures in the plot not to mention the godlike Lord Lisburne.
He’s got his hands full protecting one poetry-spouting cousin from stampedes of sentimental young ladies. Still, he would be happy to spend some time with Leonie, if only she’d stop turning another cousin from ugly duckling to swan.
It is really encouraging to discover what the right clothing design can do.
Loretta Chase has written a charmer about the second Noirot sister in Scandal Wears Satin. As a former gossip columnist for a tiny Florida newspaper, I envy her heroine’s powers of description in the articles she writes for a TMZ-like publicationof the day. She is surrounded by fabulous gowns to describe in meticulous detail. In my own defense, it would have been hard to wax poetic over the fishing boots worn by the people I encountered.
Mistress-of-disguise Sophy and much smarter-than-he-lets-on Lord Lunmore join forces to bring about a HEA for themselves and for his almost disgraced sister. Maison Noirot gains flocks of new customers. Even his dragon of a mama comes around.
