Lady Catherine "Cat" Sinclair must rescue her impoverished family by marrying a wealthy suitor. But there is one problem: she knows nothing of seduction. But Thomas Montrose - a rake who has long set the town ablaze with his passion - may be able to help. Can Cat persuade him to give her a few scandalous lessons? But he may get schooled....
Now retired to the English countryside, Thomas has bid adieu to his libertine days. Yet the impudent maiden with the shocking proposal ruffles his nerves when she claims he is no longer a master seducer. To prove her wrong, he agrees to teach her all about desire. But he never imagines his ravishing student will learn so quickly...or that she will tempt him beyond reason.

Right Parts, Just Not Assembled Correctly
This is my second experience with Connie Brockway. I like her writing style, but I'm not a fan of how she tells the overall story. In this instance, she sets up characters that are initially interesting in a compelling situation, but then, plot points drag on far longer than necessary and the romantic tension dissipates so much that it's hard to stay intrigued. As audience members, we get inundated with what the characters are thinking and feeling, but they only seem to get around to telling or truly knowing this in each other at the absolute last moment. It was a merry-go-round of the same conflict of "he/she loves me - he/she loves me not," and there were way too many petals on this flower. The main characters lost some of their original charm as a result. I appreciated how actual historical events were integrated into the story, but everything could have been woven together with more appeal and captivation.
I have found that I don't care for when Alison Larkin is the narrator for romances. Her women often have a shrew-like or airhead quality, and she struggles with her voices for males so that they come off as attractive or enticing. I also often disagree with her interpretation of the overall material and how she uses cadence.
