Publisher's Summary

Lysandra Keates is running out of options. Her father is dead, her mother is ill, and her efforts to find respectable employment have ended in failure. With her small savings bleeding away, she swallows her pride - and her terror - and turns to Vivien Manning, an infamous courtesan, to match her with a wealthy protector. For years, Viscount Andrew Callis has lived a monastic existence at his country estate, hardening his body against the snobbish, lazy young man he once was, hardening his heart against grief over the deaths of his wife and infant son.
When Vivien asks him to spend one month training a young woman in the ways of a mistress, his mind resists . . . but his body responds with an ache he thought long dead. As Andrew begins his gentle tutelage, he finds himself falling under the spell of Lysandra's innocent charms. And as they give in to the powerful hunger, the last thing Andrew ever expected, or wanted, forms between them. An emotional connection that could carry them well past the training period - if only Andrew can open his heart to the possibility of love.

Thanks KD for a great review that peaked my interest in this book.

Wow what a listen!
If you're looking for a great historical romance that's bordering on erotica go no further! Very well written, nice story and character development intermixed with some of the hottest scenes I've come across in this genre.

I will definitely pursue other titles by this author! I'm often disappointed when trying new authors and I come across those that are heavy on the emotion, holding hands and building relationships. You definitely won't feel that way reading this novel!

Best enjoyed when you have time to read it all in one sitting as you won't want to put it down!

Carmen rose was fantastic with the delivery of the story

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Not as good as I had hoped

The author kept using current terminology for this historical romance. That was a bit distracting. In addition, the story was too simple. By that I mean not much imagination was put into the storyline. I actually found it boring. I normally LOVE passion and sex in my books and even that could not help this book. Though it contained lots of sex, it lacked a gripping storyline so it fell very short. I can not recommend this book. Save your money or credit for a better book.
