True love never goes out of style.... Once renowned for creating the most envied gowns in London, Madame Follette's dressmaking shop has fallen far out of fashion. The approaching coronation of King George IV offers a chance to reclaim former glory by supplying stunning new wardrobes to the most glittering society in Regency England. In the face of long-held secrets, looming scandals, and the potential ruin of their shop, the dressmakers of Follette's are undaunted, not even by the most unexpected complication of all: true love. The Duke's Dressmaker by Madeline Hunter When the Duke of Barrowmore walks into the dress shop, Selina Fontaine assumes her secret identity will be compromised. Four years ago this man's brother seduced her and abandoned her to scandal, and she holds the duke responsible. To her amazement the duke is more interested in pursuing her than exposing her, however-and that pursuit soon becomes seductively pleasurable. The Colors of Love by Myretta Robens Delyth Owen's exuberant passion for her new job as a dressmaker at Madame Follette's is matched only by her love of diverse, vibrant, and frequently unfortunate color combinations. Simon Merrithew, the pseudonymous author of a well-regarded fashion column, is horrified by the gown Delyth creates for a friend, and suspects her motives. He sets out to uncover her duplicity, but instead, he uncovers genuine joy and discovers the colors of love. No Accounting for Love by Megan Frampton Miss Katherine Grant is a lady's companion, one whose number of dishonorable offers (six) greatly outweigh her honorable ones (zero). Now tasked with making certain her charge, Lady Euphemia, does not contract herself to someone inappropriate, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Mr. Henry Dawkins, the inappropriate gentleman Lady Euphemia wants to charm, who keeps the books at Madame Follette's. But it seems that Henry only has eyes for Miss Katherine Grant. A Fashionable Affair by Caroline Linden Madame Follette's is Felicity Dawkins's birthright; her mother founded it, and now she runs it. She's fiercely committed to making it the most exclusive modiste in London. The Earl of Carmarthen also has big plans for the shop-he wants to buy it and tear it down, to make way for a grand new boulevard of shops. One way or another, he's determined to persuade Felicity...not only to sell her shop, but to explore the passion that sparks between them every time they meet.
