I have been looking for another narrator to add to my favorites list. 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.

Scandal Wears Satin (Audiobook) by Loretta Chase |

Sarah MacLean Narrated by: Especially when multiple accents are involved and words less familiar to the modern vocabulary, the distinct voices and proper pronunciation featured in dramatic narration help keep the plot rolling as well as enhancing the listener immediate understanding and subtle insights often only descernable through vocal inflection. This couple had terrific banter.

He didn’t seem to be devoid of brains in the last book, not to mention that he never really did anything stupid in this one, either. It was still a good book; in fairness. It always annoys me when the hero acts like a lazy, tomcat slob and that was the hero in the first half.

I kind of think this is a bit like Longmore trying to think And a gratuitous pic of my fave tall dark hunk Waving a copy of Foxe’s Morning SpectacleSophy Noirot burst in upon the Duke and Duchess of Clevedon while they were breakfasting in, appropriately enough, the breakfast room of Clevedon House. Lorraine Heath Narrated by: But he learnt very quickly that Sophie was not the usual sort and he changed his tune, thank God.

Scandal Wears Satin

When it comes to saving the Maison Noirot from disaster, I adore how she uses her amazing arsenal of talents — considerable guile, irresistible charm, remarkable literary talents and brilliant disguises — to maximum effect.


Loretta Chase, what happened?!?! September 12, ] 43 22 Sep 26, Can’t wait to listen to more by Loretta Chase with Kate Reading. When lorettq biggest customer, Lady Clara and Lord Longmore’s sister is caught into a scandal,Sophia joins hands with Lord Longmore, aka Henry to pull her out of it. He never professes to be an intellectual giant but he is far more intelligent than he gives himself credit for.

It still frustrated me that he took nearly the whole book to see this incredibly smart and interesting woman as more than what was between her legs. Due to the events in the first book, the shop is losing customers and the sisters have made an enemy of a wealthy and influential lady. Scandal Wears Satin is all of those things and I suspect will delight the vast majority of romance readers.

I wanted him to shine forth.

The banter is great! It takes her a while to acknowledge that sometimes it is nice to share a burden, or to let someone rescue her. I am not particularly into fashion per se, but I actually enjoyed the detailed research and wonderful descriptions. It was like trying to push a brick wall. I will be buying the third one for sure. For Sophy Noirot and her two sisters, their dressmaking establishment Maison Noirotis not just a business but a passion.

Sophy is the brains and Longmore is happy to not have to think about anything, which he admits to anyone who will listen. To read more of my reviews please visit my blog at www. Besides her style, her characters just seem so likeable and lifelike. Longmore is under the impression he is saving Clara, but Sophy is the brain behind the operation.

Tessa Dare Narrated by: May 01, Dija rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Buy Scandal Wears Satin: His mind went hazy then, images of muslin and lace underwear strewed themselves about his brain, and somewhere in that dishevelment was a blue-eyed angelic devil, mostly unclothed.

All he’s trying to do is recapture the slightly inebriated Lady Olympia Hightower and return her to her intended bridegroom. The narration is amazing, Kate Reading is a genius and does the voices so well, each person has a distinct speaking voice.


Good but not great.

Scandal Wears Satin — Loretta Chase

He has a great sense of humour which is a big plus in my book. It was implied that Lord Longmore had a tender for Sophy who seemed to have brush My ratings: To avoid his usual temptations and perhaps even repay the friend who saved his life, he’s exiled himself to a place far from civilization – Derbyshire – in winter!

I just didn’t find it plausible that Sophy would get so involved in Clara’s troubles, especially the part where she and Longmore go off alone to try to find her. I laughed out loud frequently and couldn’t stop smiling hours later. And, weirdly enough, a remarkable gift for languages! Edelweiss Part of a Series: Works well as a standalone Steam Level: Three sisters plotting wicked plots—and it isn’t us!

I might continue reading this series, I might not. Now a partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever svandal takes to regain his inheritance – including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. Luckily, in good historical romance fashion, he comes good and I loved him by the end.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? But it also makes him just that bit less attractive and admirable as a hero. I guess this one just felt too contrived to make something happen between characters already present.

Just in case he wasn’t heated enough already. Unfortunately I felt like her charm wore off towards the end.

She made it a point in fact to often not reveal her real identity to anyone.
