From the Design Book of Marcelline Noirot:
The allure of the perfect gown should be twofold:
ladies would die to wear it . . .
and gentlemen would kill to remove it!
Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirot
is London's rising star. And who better to benefit
from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in the ton,
the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the
future duchess's patronage means prestige and fortune
for Marcelline and her sisters. To get to the lady,
though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose
standards are as high as his morals are . . . not.
The prize seems well worth the risk—but this time
Marcelline's met her match. Clevedon can
design a seduction as irresistible as her dresses;
and what begins as a flicker of desire between two
of the most passionately stubborn charmers
in London soon ignites into a delicious inferno . . .
and a blazing scandal.
And now both their futures hang by an
exquisite thread of silk . . .
