Readers, Happy Monday! I am back with a review.
Lessons from a Scarlet Lady is a little different than most of the historical romances I read. There are TWO love stories running through the book. Brianna and her husband Colton the Duke of Rolthven and his younger brother Lord Robert Northfield and Brianna’s childhood best friend Rebecca Marston. Both stories build on top of one of another. I was worried that there would not be enough detail to each couple but I was happily surprise that each couple had a lot detail and depth.
Brianna and Colton have been married for three months. With his ducal responsibilities Colton is busy. He appreciates his wife but doesn’t express much affection towards her. Brianna being young and in love with her husband wants to be connect not only physically but emotionally, she has a plan to help her husband connect. She seeks out advice from a book written by a former courtesan Lady Rothburg and puts a plan into motion of seducing her husband to gain the connection she is wanting. Strangely or not so strange to us women, Colton the proper hard working duke will realize he not only likes his wife but really truly loves her. However, Colton isn’t sure where his sweet Brianna has learned some of her new seduction methods and begins to question her fidelity, which can only lead to some interesting conversations.
Lord Robert is a known rake. The youngest brother to the Duke of Rolthven is a charmer and lover of women. He is known for his good looks and charm. However very few know Robert for the man he truly is. Rebecca Marston has loved Robert since she met him over a year ago. She has loved him from a far. With her parents pushing her to marry she realizes that she would rather marry for love than position. With help from an unlikely source Robert’s middle brother Damien and Brianna’s book by Lady R. will she gain the confidence to seek her hearts desire and make Robert hers? Will Lady R.’s advice be helpful?
I really enjoyed this book. It was really sweet and fun. Having the two couples was fun and different than the normal romances I read. Damien the brother to both Colton and Robert was a great addition to the cast of characters. I enjoyed his interference in his brother’s plans. I liked that Brianna and Colton are established and the real issue is that she wants him to express his feelings more. I think most women can agree that maybe we would like our significant others to express their feelings for their special ladies. Of course, it always fun to read about a rake losing his heart to woman but Robert and Rebecca have a lot in common and it was nice to see his emotional side. Also, Rebecca takes a chance that will shock you and I applauded her efforts! This was a great read and I look forward to reading more books by Emma Wildes.
