Silk is for Seduction by Loretta Chase

Goodreads Description:

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 anexquisite thread of silk . . .

My Rating: 2 out of 5

My Review:

I was so let down by this book.  I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 because I want to read the next in the series, and see how the two sisters meet their loves.  I didn't understand the little comments at the beginning of each chapter.  They didn't seem to have any rhyme or reason to them.  The first half the book the the same thing OVER AN OVER, which would be Marcelline and the Duke's Cat and Mouse game and their denial about their true feelings due to other responsibility.  It got boring VERY quickly.  The end was abrupt and unsatisfactory.  The writing it's self was decent and and the timing average.  Nothing to write home about at all.  But pick it up and see for yourself.
