Lessons of Desire

By

Phaedra Blair is the beautiful, eccentric heroine of this Regency romp. The illegitimate offspring of a woman whose philosophy espoused free love and a Parliamentary politician, Phaedra lives an independent life according to her own rules. Garbed in her usual free-flowing black habit, she would resemble a nun except for her undressed hip-length red hair. On his deathbed, her father charged Phaedra to publish his memoirs, a request that sets the ton on its ear. Enter Elliot Rothwell, assigned by his oldest brother, Marquess of Easterbrook, to stop publication no matter what the cost as the memoirs accuse their father of murder. Elliot pursues Phaedra to Naples, Positano, Pompeii and back, and despite the fact that they’ve married along the way, he has his work cut out to win her love and trust.

Madeline Hunter needs no introduction to readers of Regency-era historical romances. She never fails to offer an interesting plot with a touch of mystery and erotic love scenes. Lessons of Desire lives up to expectations.
