A USA Today Bestseller, JADE LEE has been scripting love stories since she first picked up a set of paper dolls. Ball gowns and rakish lords caught her attention and her fascination with the Regency began. And as a Taurus, she lives to pit a headstrong woman against a tortured hero just to watch them butt heads on the way to true love. Flesh wounds are rare, but the healing and laughter are real.
An author of more than 30 romance novels, she finally gets to set these couples in the best girl-heaven of all: a Bridal Salon! This way she gets to live out all her wedding fantasies, one by one. (Let’s be honest, what girl has only one idea for her dream wedding?)
Wedded in Scandal
Gorgeous Wedding Fashions,
Lady Helaine’s father was cast out of society as a liar and a thief—a scandal which renders her unfit for marriage. In order to provide for herself and her mother, she adopts an assumed name and runs a dressmaker’s shop that specializes in bridal wear for ladies of high society. Helaine is happiest immersed in silk and satin, but she lives in terror that someone will learn her true identity and she will lose everything…again.
Robert Percy is entranced with the mysterious Helaine and weaves a web of seduction sure to ensnare the delectable dress designer. Yet too late he learns the heartbreaking truth about who she used to be. Now he must find a way to overcome the past to claim Helaine as his own. But what chance has love when a secret mistress becomes a scandalous wife?
You must drop into A Lady’s Favor Dress Shop for the latest fashions, the juiciest of secrets and the place to find your happily ever after…………….

“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.” – Publisher’s Weekly
“This book is dazzling on many levels. The historical setting is well crafted and beautiful. The characters are well developed and their interactions filled with both heated sensuality and emotional depth. The details woven together throughout the book combine to create a beautiful, haunting tale of love overcoming the seemingly greatest of odds.” - Night Owl Reviews
