Too many rough, lonely men, too few respectable women;
Brothels full of prostitutes who call themselves seamstresses;
Two sewing machines;
One real seamstress who desperately needs a husband--of convenience
And one man who will do anything to win her love...even make a dangerous deal with Seattle's most notorious madam.

It has the makings of a classic tale, with epic storytelling and believable characters, that you just fall in love with or hate in equal measure depending on their bent.
I always find the quality of the writing can be judged on the ability of the author to turn the characters of the written page in to living, breathing people that you can actually invest in and worry about how it will turn out for them.
This author managed to do exactly that, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you read this 5 star gem for your reading delectation. Personally, I can't wait to read other stuff she has produced, and won't mind paying for them!
