Julia Swift is terribly sexy.  Unfortunately, there's nothing she can do about it.  Working as a seamstress, she hides in plain sight from a world she fears only wants to use her - that is, until she is claimed as a personal stylist and taken under sheltering wing by vivacious socialite, Vérité Claire, a glamorous eccentric who adores surrounding herself with talented oddballs including sassy housekeeper, Lotte, and insanely jealous biographer, Bernard.  In exchange for their friendship and loyalty during her ongoing prank war with arch nemesis, Broadway broad, Minx McCall, she schools them all on how to live life to the fullest. 
  
  Julia soon brings another stray into the fold when she is saved from a subway lunatic by the gruff, hulking outcast, Orson Vaughn, a man living in self-imposed exile since being betrayed by those closest to him in his shameful past. Julia owes him a favour and then he owes her one, and so on and so on until two people who are trying to be invisible are seeing an awful lot of each other. When a kindness from Vérité offers Orson a chance at revenge with former adversaries will he choose his old war over new found peace with Julia? Will Julia's trust in Orson blossom into something more? If Vérité Claire has anything to do with it then the answer is 'Yes, darlings!' 
  
  So powder your noses, because the The Favoured, The Fair and Ms. Vérité Claire is a lighthearted Beauty and the Beast-like romantic farce with a pie-throwing, rodeo-riding, chocolate covered, diamond studded, French-tipped twist! Swoon responsibly.
  
  Please know this story contains a few mild curse words. You'll love 'em!
