When Hannah's caught watching her late husband's cousin debauch the maid in the library, she's mortified--but also intrigued. An unpaid companion to his aunt, she's used to being ignored.
The black sheep of the family, Leo has nothing but his good looks and noble birth to recommend him. Hannah ought to be appalled at what she's witnessed, but there's something about Leo that draws her to him.
When Leo claims he can prove that women can feel desire as passionately as men, Hannah is incredulous. Her own experiences have been uninspiring. Yet she can't bring herself to refuse his audacious proposal when he offers to tutor her in the art of lovemaking. As the tantalizing, wicked lessons continue, she begins to fear she's losing not just her inhibitions, but her heart as well. The poorest of relations, she has nothing to offer Leo but herself. Will it be enough when their erotic education ends?
Whew, what a read. Look at that cover, isn't it gorgeous? There is so much packed into this short story. Hannah is a widow who has been taught that sex is not supposed to be enjoyable. It is merely the duty of a wife. After being witness to Leo's tryst with a maid, she becomes intrigued. She allows Leo to teach her the pleasures of love making. He makes her feel things she never thought possible. The excitement of their "sessions" was contagious. Their stolen moments in the library unbeknownst to others, would they be caught? What would happen if they were found out? It was a great read. I read it in an hour. It is only 58 pages long, but there is so much packed into those pages! I will be looking for more from this author! Got get it now!!
I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley.
