Is it me or is it Madeline Hunter? It's probably her. I've read a bunch of books she've written and not all are good. Take “By Arrangement”, for instance... it made me shiver at times. Take “The Sins of Lord Easterbrook”... made me yawn all time. What about this Lessons of Desire?
So you may already know Phaedra Blair from previous books around this Rothwell family. Phaedra is a feminist and she believes in free love - which means, she doesn't want to get attached and she abominates marriage.

Tempo de Ler
A história já uma vez provara que o amor era uma emoção perigosa para os homens Rothwell

Muito resumidamente: o enredo de Lições de Desejo não foi suficiente para prender o meu interesse e o desenvolvimento do romance entre Phaedra e Elliot revelou-se enfadonhamente repetitivo e previsível.

Algumas referências/curiosidades históricas pareceram-me mal colocadas, surgindo do nada…se é verdade que gosto da presença de detalhes nestes livros, também é verdade que aprecio uma boa dose de coerência. De

3.5 stars rounded up to 4 because I was in the right mood when I read it.

3 1/2 stars.
MH is a NTM author and this being my first book, I wasn't sure what to expect. In reading the back of the book I expected a regular regency type historical romance. But it was really alot more than that. MH's writing was a bit uneven to me, in that at times her writing was very lush and descriptive and at other times she left me wanting to have a better description of what was taking place. (the love scenes could have used a bit more of this and sometimes the wording used was odd.)

Não resisto. Tenho que começar esta opinião com o meu desagrado com a ASA. Por que raio é que não publicaram pela ordem correcta? Não percebo e sinceramente não gostei, mas pode ser que tenha um lado bom: o facto de assim ter mais uma razão para reler tudo pela ordem e voltar a pegar na história de Hayden e Alexia!!
Em relação ao romance aqui em relevo devo dizer que a minha opinião se assemelha muito à que tenho do livro Os Pecados de Lord Easterbrook. Penso que é o facto das cenas saírem um pou

First of all I would like to say that Madeline Hunter is one of my favourite authors. I LOVED her medievals and have been faithfully following her ever since even if she left the medieval period behind.

Handsome, suave, and carnal as the devil, Lord Elliot Rothwell awaits readers in Lessons of Desire, bestselling author Madeline Hunter's latest book in the Rothwell series and her most provocative novel to date. A man used to getting what he wants, Elliot is every woman's most secret fantasy in t

Foi através deste livro que me iniciei nas leituras de Madeline Hunter. Conhecida pelos seus romances históricos, carregados de sensualidade e sedução, "Lições de Desejo" não foi exceção.
Centrando-se em Phaedra e Lorde Elliot, dá-nos a conhecer as desavenças entre estes dois personagens. Phaedra tenta descobrir um segredo relacionado com a sua mãe, tencionando publicar um manuscrito, enquanto que Elliot tenta a toda a força impedir essa mesma publicação, pois sabe que prejudicará a sua família

The beginning was so slow I had almost put it down but the middle and towards the end made it worth while. The heroine, Phaedra Blair is so unrealistic in Regency era because of her feminist and modern day ideas that I just couldn't wrap myself around it. Besides that, I found her annoying & stupid, so it was hard to root for someone like her. The things she said and did just infuriated me and for the life of me did not, could not believe that anyone would fall for her especially the intelli ...more

Bastou um simples olhar para semear uma sedutora chama, sem qualquer pudor ou receio, o medo, esse, nasceria com a imprevisibilidade de algo que ela nunca ousou imaginar possível para si.

Lições de Desejo é um genuíno romance repleto de belas descrições e com um casal de protagonistas atractivo. Convida-nos a entrar num século em que a sensualidade e o requinte são duas faces da mesma moeda e que por vezes fazem parte de um jogo demasiado perigoso.

Madeline Hunter concretiza a sedução como muito p

Might trade the next one in this series, so I had to put a wiggle on and read this one first so I can tackle that TBR.
Now a number of rings have arrived so it will have to wait. I do enjoy Madeline Hunter's writing - can't think of one I've read that I didn't like. In this there were times when Phaedra's militant feminism almost turned her into a figure of ridicule, which I would not have been happy about, but I managed to just barely wince when this was the case and plow through. On the whole i

Mais um bom livro de Madeline Hunter. Gostei do enredo desta singular história de amor.
Uma mulher destemida que vai contra as regras da sociedade da época e do que se esperava, uma completa submissão ao homem e ao papel de esposa. Contra tudo e todos, ela pretende levar uma vida livre até encontrar o amor no jovem Elliot e ver-se presa nos braços do mesmo.
Um romance interessante e um pouco diferente, gostei.

I enjoyed this story perhaps more since I had really liked the first book and was looking forward to Elliot's story. It wasn't a surprize that Phaedra was the herione yet no matter how well MH wrote, Phaedra is simply a women that would not endear herself into an favorite 5 star romance. She had her unique qualities but was slightly too over the top for me to root for Elliott to turn his world around for her. As a whole the series is well worth ready!

Bir önceki romanına göre daha iyiydi ama gene de favori Hist yazarlarım arasına asla giremiycek bu kadın,ben çok fazla aşk hissedemiyorum bu kadının romanlarında,zorları dertleri yatağa atlamak.Yanlış anlaşılmasın abartılı bir yatak sahnesi yok,ama güçlü bir aşktan çok güçlü bir yatak ilişkisi var aralarında,arkadaşınızda varsa alın okuyun,yoksa para vermek gereksiz :D

This book goes so slow! If I start a book, I almost always finish it, but it was hard with this book. It took me 3 days to read it. I could not recommend this book. I am not sure I would ever read another book by Madeline Hunter after having read this one! It has been a while since I read the first book in this series and I thought I liked it. But this book just drags on and on... Boring!
Minna
Neither of the main characters was very sympathetic, and the basis was unrealistic: into "free love" or not, no gentleman at that time would have married a woman who ran around sleeping with anyone who interested her. Especially not when she was so abrasive and repellent. Did not enjoy this one at all. Ms. Hunter has written much better.
Virginia
Although I found the female protagonist, Phaedra, supremely annoying and strident, my love for Elliot won out and I tolerated her. In the end, I could see why she made her stupid choices, but truly, I still don't care for her. The story was good, as usual, and I am so pleased to continue reading Hunter's work.
Elaine
I loved this, but not as much as book 1. An excellent read though, with great characters and a storyline that's a bit more original. Love the interaction between Phaedra and Elliot - made for each other in the end!
4.5*

I took a break and eventually realized I had no desire to pick it up again.

I think Phaedra was just a little too non-conformist for me. She just seemed too strong and independent for Elliott. That being said, I really like Madeline's writing style!

I don't know...i think i was just expecting the book to gave me a little more and it just didn't happened

Disappointing. When I read Romance books I don't want to read about a hippie who's misplaced in the 19th century.

Hesitei entre 2 ou 3 estrelas.
O romance não me convenceu. Acho que a Phaedra e o Elliot não combinam e ela irrita-me.

Este é o livro da série _ e eu sei que venceu o prémio RITA _ do qual eu menos gostei. Sinceramente. Adorei o primeiro e o terceiro. Mas este, não.

Lessons of Desire, Madeline Hunter (A-) - Disliked the title but greatly enjoyed the book, which was nice because I have had contradictory feelings about Hunter's books. I liked The Arrangement but found myself somewhat emotionally distant from it, and I did not care much for Dangerous in Diamonds. I think this is a good example of why it can be rewarding though to continue on with an author, as Hunter is a writer that produces a wide range of quality (for me, at least). Lessons in Desire was em ...more

Maybe 2.5?

I liked the H/h's whirlwind romance in Italy -- made me wish I could jet off to Italy for a few weeks and just have sex in big beds in beautiful villas.

But damn, Phaedra is a pain in the goddamned ass. She's selfish and clueless. I don't appreciate her unconventionality, so I guess I'm as bad as the society matrons in London who write her off. Every time her hair is described as flowing, I just cringe. I have big thick long hair and it makes me crazy to have it streaming around all the

Este é um daqueles livros que podemos classificar como uma leitura leve, que nos envolve num mundo romântico, de desejo e amor. No entanto, há muito mais do que aquilo que se vê. Este livro é uma verdadeira lição sobre o que significa o casamento e o porquê das pessoas optarem por se casar.
Já tinha lido um livro desta autora antes que me foi emprestado, já não me lembro há quanto tempo, chamado As Regras da Sedução. Lembro-me que o adorei e ainda me lembro bastante bem das personagens principa

This book surprised me. It is deep, well-written and deals with a modern woman's dilemma: how does one who has been brought up on "feminist" ideals actually find a healthy balance between an innate, and perfectly natural, need for a serious, loving relationship with a strong, decent man and still retain one's independence of being?

Phaedra is not your usual romance heroine and there were times when she took her struggle for independence too far. But she evolved from her experiences, and at times
