FREE DOC Ë READER Silk Is for seduction ´ 9780061632686 Õ From the Design Book of Marcelline NoirotThe allure of the perfect gown should be twofoldladies would die to wear it and gentlemen would kill to remove itBrilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirot is London's rising star And who better to benefit Ine'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 scandalAnd now both their futures hang by an exuisite thread of silk This improved as it went along but we did not start out friends this book and I And I've thought on it and I cannot give it than 3 stars It's Chase so it's nicely written and feels sort of historically appropriate a Duke marrying a dressmaker is far fetched and there's no way the heroines rep wouldn't be ruined by the way she behaves in this book There are some lovely descriptions of clothes which frankly there should be if you're going to take on dress making as a subject Sex was good too I liked the characterization of the hero It was nice to have his idleness and his apathy highlighted by the heroine who is very far from either of those things and nice to see him grow as a result of his feelings for her That said there were too many elements to him really Dead mother in a tragic accident nothing too much came of that And a prior engagement to a girl he plainly only loved as a sister which lingered for way too long The heroine was inconsistent All about the business and her family but then she risks everything absolutely everything in her affair with the hero And that's where we come on to my big gripe plot and motivationThe heroine wants to snare the hero's fiancée as a client So she absolutely cannot be seen to be a romantic rival for her What well bred woman is going to have her clothes made by the vixen ensnaring the husbandsfiancéesbeaux of her clientele? None of them So what does she do? She flirts with him She takes his cravat pin and exchanges it for one of her pins She kisses him in the middle of an argument this was a particularly irritating moment for me She goes with him unaccompanied to a massive society ball She lets him into her shop and sleeps with him She stays with him in his house and she accepts a bunch of money from him even if it is a loanThis was a bit too much for me Badly plotted given what Chase wants us to believe about the heroine's motivations and her character Particularly bad in Paris which is the start of the book hence my visceral dislike of it in those early stages And it soured me on the relationship It got better as it went on and their behaviour made a bit sense in the context of how his fiancée reacted But still brings the rating down I will pick up the rest in the series though because Chase has some stellar writing chops and she's entertaining

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 notThe prize seems well worth the risk but this time Marcell Silk Is For Seduction was supposed to be the historical romance book that will make me forget all the crap I’ve gotten from this genre in the past and make me see that there are still good stories belonging to this genre out there Oh I’m sorry Mrs Chase was there supposed to be a plot there? I seem to have missed it with all the growing erections popping up like mushrooms in a forest after heavy rainWhat was this book all about? Making dresses for stuck up aristocrats? Or likely about the duke wanting to bang the dressmaker That's it? Why would I want to read something like this?I wouldn'tNo you can’t possibly change my mind I need a good plot for me to like a book Sex just won’t do itNo you can’t change my mindOr maybe if it’s a book about Barrons But that’s where I draw the lineOh why Ilona Andrews why did you like this book??? Why did you make me waste my time like this?? sobsSo this is officially the last historical romance I'll ever try At least not for the next few years Maybe later I'll get 14 cats and feel desperate enough to read this crap again Oh god my dead body will be eaten by cats when I get old Now that’s depressing Really
