Sophy Noirot believes it is up to her to build the Noirot sisters’ dress shop into the premier modiste in London. She’s not above spying on the ton or her competition. When their best customer, Clara, bolts before her wedding, Sophy is intent on finding the girl. So is Clara’s brother, Harry Fairfax, Earl of Longmore. As they follow Clara’s trail to Portsmouth, long-suppressed desires are unleashed. Longmore can only think of one thing at a time — and he’s thinking about Sophy. Clever Sophy locates Clara, but the problem isn’t solved. Leave it to Sophy to come up with a plan that will save Clara, make a friend of the Noirots’ enemy and win Sophy what she’s secretly dreamed about: love. (AVON, Jul., 400 pp., $7.99)
