Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Fresina’s excellent Sydney Dovedale series (The Wicked Wedding of Miss Elie Vyne; Lady Mercy Danforthe Flirts with Scandal, 2013), of loosely connected families and people, continues with the unique story of Miss Molly Robbins. Molly jilts her country fiancé and returns to London, where Earl Carver Danforthe promised to set her up in a sewing business. The earl is fascinated by the small woman, who disapproves of his rakish life. Though he calls her “Mouse,” he is affected by her comments, and especially by her requirement of a no-flirting clause in their business contract. His interest in her grows with the business. When she gives in, their sexy encounters propel them into even deeper feelings. Several things stand in the way of their happiness, but many fun surprises and another satisfying ending await them. Fresina’s characters are more forthright and modern thinking than in many Regency romances, and that is part of the refreshing appeal of her approach to a genre in which new angles are hard to find. Amanda Quick fans will enjoy Fresina’s novels. --Amy Alessio

"Lighthearted and entertaining. " - My Book Musings

"Interesting minor characters, poignancy, passion and a well-kept secret round out this very touching read. 4 Stars" - RT Book Reviews

"What a fun read, the prim and proper character versus the rogue. But both have multilayered personalities that mesh flawlessly. The romance is fun to follow, with fire between the sheets and smoke in the aftermath. I look forward to more of Jayne Fresina's work." - BookLoons

"A fine read indeed." - Fresh Fiction

"A clever, witty novel of social reform... There are many twists and turns in the plot." - Historical Novels Review

"A funny, sweet, completely engaging book." - Sonya's Stuff

"Along with the humor there were also very sweet moments of heartwarming tenderness and steamy passion to balance the story and make it one that you will want to read over and over again." - Be My Bard

This is my favorite book out of Jayne Fresina's Sydney Dovedale series. I've long awaited Molly and Carver's story, ever since their fated meeting when Molly was just a young girl being employed by Carver's sister, Lady Mercy. Molly remains the practical, sensible, and sweet girl that she was, who slowly becomes tempted by Carver though he, too, gradually begins to have a conscience and learns not too late the important of Molly in his life. This was a truly enjoyable read and I highly recommend it.

It is your work in life that is the ultimate seduction. - Pablo Picasso

Molly Robbins is an artist ... in fashion. Village folks thought she, a lady's companion, was lucky to catch an industrious farmer with a well connected father. Yet Molly left him at the altar to pursue her dream in London. She asks her employer's brother, the Earl of Everscham, to back her business ... without backing her into a bed. Carver Danforthe endorsed the contract "with the mouse of a companion" during a hangover. Yet he stands by his financial commitment and even sends clients to Molly. Soon Carver admires her drive ... and then her appeal.

Jayne Fresina delivers another humorous adventure with Book Four in the Sydney Dovedale series. Molly is a breath of fresh air with her self confidence that is only confined by society's constraints. Fresina introduces readers to the fashion world - Molly designed forward thinking dresses to accentuate her clients' curves. Likewise, Fresina creates forward thinking characters outside the ton to huddle around Molly in her endeavor.

My only complaint is Fresina takes the plot in a direction that I felt undermined Molly's character - the character that appealed to my heart. Fresina is still a master of the unconventional romance that sets her novels apart from the Regency crowd.

Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone novel.

I received an ARC from Sourcebooks for an honest review.

4 out of 5 for this reader folks!

Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction by Jayne Fresina is the fourth book of her Sydney Dovedale series. I was eager for this story as there were a few teasers in previous books and the pairing of our hero and heroine was a little unusual. Well I am happy to say that Jayne Fresina delivered.

We met Carver Danforthe, Earl of Everscham in previous novels. He is the older brother if Mercy Danforthe (she was the heroine of the previous novel), a notorious rake who recently was appointed his title and quite frankly does not care for the responsibility that comes with it. He does however enjoy the perks .... money, woman and living his life as he pleases.

Miss Molly Robbins was a lady's maid to his sister Mercy. She is a dull creature, dressed in drab and from a small town called Sydney Dovedale. When Carver had to retrieve his young sister after she ran away many years ago, she only came back on the condition that Molly join her. Right from the start Molly stirred something in Carver .. annoyance yet curiosity. As time passes Carver has gotten use to this maturing woman living in his home and when it is time for her to leave to marry, he is surprised about his negative reaction.

Mercy rescues Molly from her marriage and insists she returns to London from Sydney Dovedale to pursue a career as a shop owner and seamstress. When Molly confronts Carver about his offer to set her up financially, little does she know she is opening a romantic can of worms that would be considered quite improper for an Earl and a country lady. As Molly is no longer a servant, she begins to let her hair down and speak her mind, much to the surprise (be it both pleasant and unpleasant) of Carver. Where did this woman come from ..

It is so refreshing as a historical romance fan to find a new author that you adore. It is like finding a precious gem. I enjoyed Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction so much I didn't want it to end. Molly is an inspiring heroine, with wit and a good head on her shoulders and a dream of having her own dressmaking shop. Carver, our hero has been living for quite a few years with Molly underfoot as his sister's maid, and no one is more shocked than he when he actually misses her presence in his home. They have a connection. She knows him better than others to even predicting his needs before he voices them. When she flees her wedding and asks him for a loan for her business he cannot think beyond keeping her at all costs in his life. This is a brilliant story that will hold your interest effortlessly. Ms. Fresina brings just the right amount of wit, banter and passion to mix up a lovely romance you will miss when you finish. Miss the characters, and all that is her writing style. I promptly bought every other book she has written. You will love this book. It's a keeper.
