Seduction was a game…
Marcelline Noirot has one thing on her mind when she meets the Duke of Clevedon. It’s not his heartbreaking good looks, nor his smouldering charm. She’s after his wallet and…his bride-to-be.
One of the most talented dressmakers in London, landing the Clevedon wedding dress would catapult Marcelline’s family business to fame and fortune. She’ll do whatever it takes and if that means using her feminine wiles on the Duke to get what she wants, then so be it. But losing her heart…that’s not part of the bargain.

‘One of the finest romance authors of all time.’ —Julia Quinn
A saucy dressmaker ensnares a duke in this deliciously witty 1830s trilogy launch loosely tied to Chase's Carsington Brothers series (Last Night's Scandal, etc.). Born into a noble but ramshackle family, the three devious Noirot sisters start a London dress shop and are soon engaged in fierce competition for the business of society ladies. When the sisters discover that wealthy Gervase Angier, duke of Clevedon, is about to become betrothed to his childhood friend, Lady Clara Fairfax, Marcelline Noirot heads to Paris to catch Clevedon's eye and encourage him to send Lady Clara to her for a wedding dress. With a sharp eye for both upper-class society and the cutthroat world of high-class London mantua makers, Chase mixes snappy dialogue, erotic tension, and the fanciful styles of the era into a sparkling love story as Marcelline's strategy ensnares not only Clevedon's patronage but his heart.
