"exciting erotic romance"
With the death of her father, a poor country parson,
Lynette knows her impoverished family is in deep trouble.
The Earl of Songshire visits Lynette suggesting a way out
of destitution for her and her family. He gives her the
address of Baroness Huntley, who runs a thriving business
arranging marriages to wealthy elderly aristocrats.
A desperate Lynette meets with the Baroness, who takes her
on as a client and assigns her to her notorious nephew
Viscount Adrian Grant to prepare her for her "mature"
spouse in a marriage that should not last more than a
decade. Adrian trains his latest pupil in how to behave as
a willing biddable bride, but the intelligent Lynette keeps
shocking him with her curiosity and her questions unlike
his previous students. As he teaches her how to excite a
man, even an old one, he finds the kisses and caresses and
more stimulate him as no one has ever done before. Adrian
suddenly knows he has a heart and that organ (and another)
belongs to his pupil who has taught him to love.
This exciting erotic romance will heat up fans of Regency
tales as the tyro Lynette teaches the professor Adrian the
difference between sex and making love. The story line
focuses on the debate between these two protagonists as the
innocent Lynette believes love and that her sex mentor deep
in his soul wants someone to simply love him while Adrian
insists it is all about lust as love does not exist.
Readers will appreciate the hands on philosophical debate
that Jade Lee presents her audience.
