Goodreads summary: Carver Danforthe, Earl of Everscham, has a reputation for being a wild rogue — not for indulging the ambitions of his sister's maid.
But Molly Robbins' unique dress designs have caught the eye of society's elite, and if it means her own dress shop, Molly will make a deal with the devil himself — or his proxy, the notoriously naughty earl.
But becoming his mistress is not a part of their arrangement. It's right there in the contract's small print: No Tomfoolery. Until he proposes a scandalous new addendum to their contract...
So I was reading this book while I was away at a training session where we had to delve into all our feelings about a lot of things and it was just the lightness I needed in those few moments I had for myself!
I really liked Molly! She knows what she wants and she's going after it wholeheartedly. I like that in a person. She's determined to make a living for herself and be a succesful modiste. She's also just a nice person and she cares about the people who live in the same building she does.
Carver is a bit of a stubborn man who doesn't really quite know what to do with feelings. He's not used to people praising him for the good he does, and he doesn't really know how to handle that either. And it was ADORABLE! I mean, most people think he's this scandalous person, but he's actually full of good deeds and kindness to a lot of people. I love how he sees the beauty in Molly and how he tries to find ways to do things for her without her finding out.
And these two defnitely had chemistry! Their story was sweet and made my heart happy and then it broke my heart a little, but only for a little while. So yes, I did very much like Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction, it was just that bit of light, cute reading that I needed while I was focusing on all these deep emotions!
My rating: 3,5 stars
