VIXEN IN VELVET
Genre: Regency Period, Historical Romance, England
Smart, funny and unconventional! The third in Chase’s Dressmaker series is an ideal read for anyone craving a fast, fun and intelligent romance. There’s something so enchanting about the story, the characters and their relationships that makes Vixen in Velvet more than a love story; it’s joyous.
Leonie Noirot is determined for her family’s dress shop to become famous, so she plans to turn ugly duckling Lady Gladys into a swan. She knows the secret to a woman’s curves is in the corset, but handsome, charming Simon Blair, Marquess of Lisburne, is intent upon getting Leonie out of hers. Leonie proposes a wager: She’ll have Gladys surrounded with suitors or spend two weeks with Simon. Leonie intends to win, but Simon’s attentions are very tempting. When his cousin’s poetry reading sets off riots at a charity event, it seems both their schemes are in jeopardy, but fate has more in store for them. (AVON, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
