I took great pleasure in this book. The romance is engaging, the sex scenes are wonderfully steamy and compliment the emotional relationship between the lovers. The plot is intriguing — it proves to be quite a challenge to “un-ruin” Clara — and the secondary characters add depth and wit to the tale. Scandal Wears Satin tells a great story, full of heat, humor, and heart. It is, however, very much a story. In this book, as in the first in the series, Silk is for Seduction, the happy ending the lovers find can only exist in fiction. In the real world of 1830’s England, much of what transpires in this novel could never happen. That’s fine with me. Ms. Chase’s historical romances aren’t celebrated for their period authenticity. They are loved because they are well-told, deeply romantic, sensual, witty love stories. Scandal Wears Satin is all of those things and I suspect will delight the vast majority of romance readers.
