Image of Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction (Sydney Dovedale)

Fresina brings her talent for clever and amusing use of verbal bantering in this nicely written historical romance. She matches a rake with an innocent young woman who is quite adept at turning his life upside down. Interesting minor characters, poignancy, passion and a well-kept secret round out this very touching read.

Miss Molly Robbins, former maid to Lady Mercy Danforthe, dreams of starting her own dressmaking establishment. Now it seems her dream will come true, as Mercy’s brother, Carver Danforthe, the Earl of Everscham, honors his offer of financial help. Carver helps her business along by sending clients to her establishment and discovers that he likes doing things for his prim Miss Robbins. Molly discovers that underneath that devil-may-care demeanor is a much different man, and she falls in love with him. When a long-held secret is finally revealed, it could open up a new life for them. (SOURCEBOOKS, Feb., 384 pp., $6.99)
