Overview

For his whole life, Robert Percy, Viscount Redhill, has worked hard to maintain a sterling reputation. And while it's socially acceptable to seduce delectable dress designer Mrs. Mortimer, Robert learns too late the heartbreaking truth about who she used to be. No one would fault him for taking Mrs. Mortimer as his lover, but Robert knows that she should be the wife of a peer of the realm, not a mistress in hiding...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Lee’s diverting historical suggests that while scandal may strip one of one’s title, breeding will out. Seamstress Mrs. Mortimer, aka Lady Helaine Talbott, has enough spunk and pure sex appeal to turn the head of Robert Percy, Viscount Redhill. Robert knows nothing of the tradeswoman’s family shame, but he recognizes class when he sees it; harder for him to accept is that a lady could have the wits or sense for business, much less love being a shopkeeper. Charming verbal fencing ensues, and Helaine matches Robert clever retort for clever retort. Soon it becomes clear that they’re meant for each other, but a marriage would be socially unacceptable, and Helaine fears her only choice is to become Robert’s mistress. The entertaining read is only slightly marred by a somewhat contrived ending. Agent: Pamela Harty, the Knight Agency. (Mar.)

There is a small store in London where magic happens at the end of a needle. In the newest series from bestselling author, Jade Lee you'll be whisk inside A Lady's Favor dress shop. Once inside, you won't want to leave. Filled with ribbons of humor, flounces of intrigue and woven together in the fabric of love, Ms. Lee's Bridal Favors series brings Regency England to life. Each book in this new series will feature a different woman who by circumstances, usually not good circumstances, comes to own or work at the dress shop. Beginning with the prequel to the series, Engaged in Wickedness, her heroine Lady Gwendolyn is a woman with too much curiosity. She captures the imagination of a quiet baron and her life, and her passions will never be the same. Yet, everything is not as it appears, and old secrets have a way of raising from the darkness. Featured in the next book, Wedded in Scandal is a disgraced Lady Helaine. Her father was thrown out of polite English society for being a liar and a thief. The scandal leaves her unfit for marriage, and financially destitute. She opens the dressmaker's shop under an assumed identity. Her world is difficult, but she is earning her way. Her biggest threat is that someone will learn of her true identity. Enter the Viscount of Redhill, Robert Percy. He is handsome, he is regal, and he is attracted to the mysterious woman. With her scandalous past, will they be able to give their love a chance? There are obstacles to overcome, but love does have a way of conquering all. At present, there are two additional books forthcoming in the series: Wedded in Sin (June 2012) and Engaged in Passion (October 2012). If you love rich, finely detailed Regency historicals, The Bridal Favors Series from Jade Lee will take you there. It is a fun, well-crafted, adventurous read sure to please her legion of fans.

This was my first time reading this author, and I loved it! The characters were engaging and the writing humorous and well-paced enough to keep me reading, something I have had trouble with with romance novels lately. The ending was abrupt, but as I also greatly enjoyed the preview for the next book in this series, I will look forward updates of Helaine and Robert at that time.
