To review

I want to listen to book 1 now, I wonder about those eyes of hers, or maybe we learn more in book 3, in that case, I want book 3, and like did their entire family die of cholera? It works perfectly as a stand alone, but it does make you want to read more, just like it should be.

Sophy is a dressmaker, somewhat of a spy, a journalist too, and just a woman of all things. Her sister married a Duke and now their shop needs new customers. Since not everyone was happy when a shopkeeper married a Duke.

This book is about keeping one of their customers happy. And that customers will put herself at risk. In comes Longmore, ha, oh he was funny, yes he was smart, but he just felt like this lummox. I liked him, he was so annoying. And so lovable.

They were great together, when they finally realised. It was a fun ride.

Great narrator, she got Longmore just right. It was fun listening too and I got swept way.

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.
