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 . . .

Chase effectively engages my five senses in her writing: sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. I like the descriptions of the sound of clothing rustling. Lord Longmore, gets distracted, heated, when he hears the material in Sophy's skirts rustling. Sophy Noirot contributes information to newspapers. The quotes from newspapers and magazines at the beginning of each chapter, enhance the view of society in England during the early 1830s. I find this story humorous. The minor character, Fenwick, a street urchin, is entertaining.
