The Mistress of Fashion, by Evelyn Richardson

Juliette de Flournoy refuses to be imprisoned by her past — the French Revolution that robbed her family of their heritage, and the rape that left her homeless — comforting herself with her dreams of becoming London’s premier modiste, and by her friends, the enterprising ladies off Mrs. Gerrard’s, London’s most exclusive seraglio. Then she meets Major Lord Adrian Claverton — the hero of her dreams, if she allowed herself to have them. Mrs. Gerrard’s ladies do not believe in love, but Juliette is not so sure. Will pride and her stubborn refusal to let anyone take care of her rob her of a chance to find out?

Major Lord Adrian Claverton wanted to right the wrongs of the world until war taught him that helping others sometimes makes their lives worse. Will he be able to convince the independent Juliette to let him help her, and will he realize that only someone who has suffered greatly can cure his own despair?

Mistress of Fashion is book one in the Ladies of Independent Means Trilogy.

Evelyn Richardson fell in love with the Regency period when she first discovered “Pride and Prejudice” stuck at home on a snow day in junior high school.  She has followed that interest through college (where she wrote her honors thesis on Fanny Burney) and graduate school, and continues to indulge herself with membership in the American Society for Eighteenth Century studies and writing Regency set historical novels.

Evelyn has also been a librarian and library administrator for many years. Living in the Boston area, she has access to, and haunts (electronically or in person) several of the country’s major research libraries.
