Enjoyed this book immensely and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. It's nice to have a historical romance set in a later date than the expected Regency England. The story focuses on Vivianna Greentree, the eldest of three sisters, kidnapped and abandoned as infants and adopted and raised into country gentility. Old enough to remember her childhood abandonment, Vivianna is determined to save the lease on an orphanage that is threatened by Lord Oliver Montegomery, who wants to t ...more

"Lessons in Seduction" is the story of Vivianna Greentree, a prim-and-proper young lady with a dark past who helps manage a home for orphans, and Sir Oliver Montgomery, an aristocrat who wants to see the orphanage (which he owns) torn down brick by brick to help solve the mystery surrounding his brother's death.

I liked the prologue however the promised seduction didn't happen for over 100 pages following that and I ended up skimming to the end. I also wasn't sure about the twist with Aphrodite, especially when Vivianna was taking sex tips from her. Seemed a bit odd when it turned out they were mother and daughter. I will not be continuing with this series.

Pas du tout convaincue par cette RH. Je me suis ennuyée, le rapprochement des héros se fait trop rapidement, l'intrigue rame... Je n'ai eu aucun attachement pour les personnages et j'avoue même avoir laisser tomber à une vingtaine de page de la fin.
Started good then.. It lost me.

Didn't like it.

a Pick from Michelle and thankfully the first in a series! Slightly later time peroid (I don't normally enjoy Victorian historicals, but love Regencies) - so far, so good! A bit like early Enoch in theme and plot.

Edit - once I got to the end I could take it or leave it. Just not "real" enough for me.

Une romance historique légère et amusante qui vous fera passer un agréable moment. Pour ma part je lirai les tomes consacrés aux sœurs de Viviana avec plaisir.

Enjoyable, but not a keeper for me. The Madame Aphrodite connection was way too coincidental for my taste. However, I liked Bennett's writing enough, so I will check out further titles in the series.
