Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Madeline Hunter stokes the fires with this sinfully delicious tale of an unjustly imprisoned woman and her savior. When publisher Phaedra Blair is released from confinement, she has Lord Elliot Rothwell to thank. But she soon learns Rothwell's ulterior motive - to prevent her from publishing a manuscript that would scandalize his family. Yet Phaedra doesn't mind playing Rothwell's erotic games - and she is every bit his match.

Struggling to get through the first half!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration is cold and haughty. It's difficult to distinguish the characters from the aloofness and unemotional tone of the narration. Mostly I feel like the characters are unlikable.

Would you recommend Lessons of Desire to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I will finish it because I paid for it, but I mostly use the book to fall asleep. Sounds rude, but it is absolutely true.

What didn’t you like about Jill Tanner’s performance?

She is emotionless. Her narration causes the characters to come off as emotionless and unlikable. I cannot cheer for them or even like them. They seem to have no pathos.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No. I don't care about the objectives of the characters. The seduction scenes are so cold that I cannot believe that anything meaningful exists between the characters other than calculated manipulation.

Any additional comments?

I will not take another chance on this author or narrator because I cannot tell if the problem is with one, the other, or both.

Not Worth the Credit

Would you try another book from Madeline Hunter and/or Jill Tanner?

I really like Madeline Hunter, but this book isn't up to her usual writing standard. The story is boring.

Any additional comments?

Not sure why this book was rated so highly.
