Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Lady Phoebe Fairchild is well aware that the ton would be appalled to learn of a young lady of quality involved in a trade. Therefore, she resorts to selling her beautiful handmade gowns under a fictitious name: Madame Dupree. So when circumstances force her to visit the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield, to design ball gowns for his sisters, she assumes Lady Phoebe Fairchild is well aware that the ton would be appalled to learn of a young lady of quality involved in a trade.
So when circumstances force her to visit the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield, to design ball gowns for his sisters, she assumes Madame's identity. Phoebe's discomfort in her new position as hired help is nothing compared to her visceral attraction to the viscount himself.
Heathenishly handsome and shamelessly seductive, Will invites her to be his mistress -- and Phoebe is shockingly tempted to accept. But as their desire for each other grows and the risk of exposure becomes even greater, Phoebe is in dire danger of losing her reputation, her livelihood -- and her chance of becoming the bride of the man whose passion has claimed her forever.

Well, at least this was better than The Perils of Pursuing a Prince , but not by much. I actually liked the theme about the heroine's talent in designing and sewing women's clothes, and the blackmail threat to expose Phoebe to the scorn of the ton was very realistic, so I had no problem accepting that premise.
My problem was with the behaviors of the two main characters - Will couldn't see that his attempts to seduce a widowed, defenseless seamstress were more reprehensible than the sexual habits Well, at least this was better than The Perils of Pursuing a Prince , but not by much. My problem was with the behaviors of the two main characters - Will couldn't see that his attempts to seduce a widowed, defenseless seamstress were more reprehensible than the sexual habits of a female servant in his household.
And Phoebe was so realistically able to act like a downtrodden servant - even when she was slapped viciously in the face! Ah, well, only in books! View 1 comment. Apr 26, laurooou rated it liked it. I believe her storyline is the most interesting one. I got hooked in the first pages and couldn't put it down until I reached the very last one.
Lady Phoebe Fairchild, daughter of the Late Earl of Bingley, sister to the Marchioness of Middleton and cousin to the Princess of Powys, is being blackmailed by her ruthless employer, Mrs Ramsey, into working as Madame Dupree, a fake identity Phoebe had created in order to be able to work as a modiste. As a consequence, she is forced to visit the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield, to design ball gowns for his ill-mannered and undisciplined sisters where she assumes Madame Dupree's identity where she experiences first-hand life as a servant.

William has just returned from 6 years of extensive travel around the world and finds his home in havoc; his father had become an infirm and has been unable to tend to his siblings, who have become unruly, they shout and hit each other at every turn the youngest being 17 years old As such, he finds himself in need to hire the best modiste in London, Madame Dupree, in the hopes of getting his sisters married and settled.
The attraction between them is obvious and I like how William fights his feelings for Phoebe because he knows that his responsibilities towards his family and his estate would not be compatible with bedding a "servant". I also really liked how Phoebe is struggling with being treated as someone of inferior rank.

However, I'm not too sure the blackmail part was very convincing. If Mrs Ramsey had blackmailed her into doing something for her that one time, what would prevent her to keep doing it forever? If Phoebe had thought things through, she probably wouldn't have gone with it But in the end, I'm glad she got blackmailed and we got to meet William Darby a. IMO this was the weakest book of the series. I love London's writing because she usually writes a big part of the book from the hero's POV, which didn't happen here. That left Will kind of a stranger for me, plus I didn't really like the way he pressed an employee of his into an illicit relationship.
No matter how mutual the attraction was, her initial response was 'No' and I believe pressing, even gently, someone who's financially dependant and in lower social standing than yourself, is not pro IMO this was the weakest book of the series. No matter how mutual the attraction was, her initial response was 'No' and I believe pressing, even gently, someone who's financially dependant and in lower social standing than yourself, is not proper hero's behavior.
There is also the matter of the ridiculous plot premises. The shopkeeper that sells Phoebe's dresses blackmails her to reveal her identity to the ton, if she doesn't go to Lord Summerfield's estate and make dresses for his sisters, posing as Madame Dupree. And Phoebe reluctantly agrees and goes. I'm sorry, but how stupid is believing that not Viscount Summerfield nor his 4 siblings, not even any of his guests -that he invints in his house for a fortnight- will come to London and meet her in a ball or two as Lady Phoebe and expose her for the fraud she was?
This required to completely suspend my belief in order to enjoy this story and unfortunately, Will's character and Phoebe's complete irresponsibility and empty headedness, didn't make matters any better. I wish I had trusted the initial reviews I read and stayed away from this one. Nov 04, Slavena rated it it was amazing Shelves: sensual , historical-romance , fast-read , favorite-heroine. Lady Phoebe Fairchild is a great modiste. She can fashion clothes that everyone admires, however since she is a part of a society which rules dictate you cannot have a profession and be a part of the ton she is pretending to be Madame Dupree.
However she is blackmailed to go to a country estate and fashion dresses for two young ladies or she will get exposed. So she travels to the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield to make dresses for his two sisters who are going to be coming Lady Phoebe Fairchild is a great modiste.
So she travels to the estate of William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield to make dresses for his two sisters who are going to be coming out this next season. He finds his family appalling. He has 2 younger brothers and 2 sisters, the lot of them totally uncivilized and rude. One of his brothers is constantly in mischief for cheating at cards and generally hates and is hated by people. The other brother is a young rascal who terrorizes his sisters.
The eldest sister is enamored by a smithy and she and the youngest are cat and mouse. Poor Phoebe felt to like she has a heart of gold and never-ending patience. She does get cross with them but she understands how they feel. William is chased by all unmarried daughters in the county and he has promised his dad that he will find a suitable wife and give him a grandchild as he wanted. However he is intrigued by the modiste and decides to pursue her for pleasures in the bedchamber. Phoebe tries to resist him but he is drawn in by her desire and eventually they become lovers.
It was a very nice story, now I am going back to read the rest. Apr 06, Thenia rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-romance , r-ab , romance , series , , reviewed.

William has just returned from his extensive travels around the world to find his home in shambles, his father infirm and unable to talk and his siblings ill-mannered and undisciplined.
In an effort to make his sisters presentable for society, where he hopes to have them married and settled, he hires the best modiste in London, Madame Dupree. The attraction between them is obvious and they find much needed understanding in one another that brings them close, but a number of obstacles in the way of their happy ending, Phoebe's deception one among them. Apart from a couple of scenes that felt a bit off, like view spoiler [Phoebe's reactions their first time, where she's far too daring and knowing for a naive, clueless virgin hide spoiler ] , this was a very enjoyable story and a fitting ending to the series.
Jul 27, Christine rated it liked it Shelves: romance. A good book, but not quite as good as the first Julia London book I happened upon so I'm rounding down. I liked the characters, the situation was plausible, and the romance was passionate. I like the way that London brings family into her stories; or at least, we're 2 for 2 on that trait. Brothers, sisters, ailing fathers My main reservations was that I thought the plot was a bit flat, especially t A good book, but not quite as good as the first Julia London book I happened upon so I'm rounding down.
My main reservations was that I thought the plot was a bit flat, especially towards the end. It was obvious that once Phoebe revealed her identity, there would be a moment of trouble over the deception and then a clean happily ever after, which is probably why it took so long to get to that revelation. In the meantime, I grew bored with the endless buildup. And I suppose it's fair to say that the ending was predicable in a bad way. I do recommend to fans of regency romance, although I did enjoy Ruthless Charmer more. Feb 08, Leya rated it liked it Shelves: library-book.
About This Item
I loathe, loathe the mistaken identity theme. Mind you I knew what I was getting into before I read the book. But my reason for it reading the was the author. My mistake. It bothered me a lot. She could have told her secret at any point, in my opinion. But it continued until, well you guessed it, someone recognized her, and I loathe, loathe the mistaken identity theme. But it continued until, well you guessed it, someone recognized her, and then the crap hit the fan. Excuse my language! It really just ticks me off….
Fiction for all women and a few good men
Oh well, my mistake. I should have gone with my gut feeling. Avoid mistaken identities and masquerades at all costs! Dec 16, Laura rated it really liked it. I liked this one better than the average, most of my usual frustrations with romance novels occurred not caring about propriety, the difficult angry siblings or children, the hero being ridiculously unreasonable about something silly but were resolved in a believable and satisfying way.
Also, for once a series like this didn't make me feel like all the characters from the previous books were simply tacked on. In the first "De I liked this one better than the average, most of my usual frustrations with romance novels occurred not caring about propriety, the difficult angry siblings or children, the hero being ridiculously unreasonable about something silly but were resolved in a believable and satisfying way. In the first "Desperate Debutante" book, all of the mention of Greer and her adventure seemed so unnecessary and tacked on just to sustain the series, but this one has mentions of the other two without being silly.
Feb 03, Wyldrabbit rated it liked it. I did like this book, but there were times when it dragged on to let everyone know how wrong it is to judge people by the way they look. There was a long drawn out chapter ll about it, of which I could not see happening. But that is just me.
Also the end of the book, it was too HEA Almost cheesy. And the ending interlude I never got a good feel for the hero character. I think some of the characters needed more development.

Lady Phoebe gets blackmailed by the women she secretly works for into working as a seamstress under the name of Madame Dupree for William Darby, the Viscount of Summerfield's rowdy siblings.
She didn't expect to fall in love with Will or to become so attached to his family, but as the lies she really had no choice of spinning starts spiraling out of control she's in a place was she's never been.

I had a good feeling about Phoebe in book 1 and I was right. Hands down, the best in the series! Jan 08, Shelly rated it liked it. I'm glad this series ended on a high note. This book was definitely the best of bunch. Phoebe was my favorite of Fairchild ladies. I also liked Will, although I thought more could have been done with his character.
Overall, this series was a little disappointing. Feb 03, Romance rated it did not like it Shelves: insults-women , historical , sex-confused-as-romance. Excuse the rant but This is no romance. And William, the hero not is an ass. You have to like at least something or someone. And the dialogue Phoebe, a young, virgin of excellent social standing likes to design and sew dresses which is established in the first 2 books.
She is somehow manipulated by a London shopkeeper in going to the country to design and sew a wardrobe for the 2 younger sisters of a Viscount hero—a selfish but well traveled oldest son. Measurements was really all that needed to happen and they could have hired someone to do that through the shop. The girls could have traveled to London to be fitted as most girls are in most books. As most people do in the world even today. It was never clear why she needed to live there to make the dresses or at the end how the shopkeeper could no longer keep the secret over her head.
The Dangers Of Deceiving A Viscount
The entire setup made no sense with this one. Phoebe is shown at social events so she is clear on societal expectations. She is young and sheltered and now has a brother in law willing to provide for and protect her. She arrives and finds the household loud from construction and with lots of family arguments and physical fighting. She is treated as a lowly servant, required to clean a filthy room to do her sewing. Again, why is she there? She is treated as a servant on staff, clearly expected to do duties not part of the contract with the shopkeeper and Phoebe meekly bows her head and does it all.
