More About the Author

"My grandparents were very poor: they did not have indoor plumbing. When I stayed with them, I lived pretty much like our ancestors did in the 19th century. The experience gave me a very practical mindset regarding history and the people who lived it. Technology may change, but we do not. We all want. We all need. Beauty. Passion. Love."


USA Today Bestselling Author Robin Schone is the recipient of the Romantic Times 2008 Career Lifetime Achievement Award for Most Innovative Historical Romances. She is published in thirteen countries, including China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and Spain. Scandalous Lovers was chosen by RUSQ (Reference & User Services Quarterly, the official journal of the Reference and User Services Association of the American Library Association) as one of five books to represent the "wide range of historical fiction in romance." Claims RUSQ: "Robin Schone writes sensual, explicit stories...about characters who are frequently older and less beautiful than most romance protagonists. Her history is impeccable; the storytelling is straightforward but emotionally driven."

Format: Paperback
This is the first book by Ms.Schone that I have had the sheer delight to read. It has everything that an erotic romance novel should have. I simply cannot understand all those out there that feel the need to belittle and degrade Ms.Schone's hard work by moaning about how 'disgusted' and 'dirtied' they felt while reading it. If you don't like to read about natural things like urinating, masturbating or lovemaking, why on Earth would you pick up this book in the first place???
This is SO much more than just erotica. It tells a very believable story of two sad and lonely people who both appear to the outside world to have everything. The characters are flawlessly written, both the good and the bad. The two leads are so very open and honest, something that seems somewhat lacking in this day and age.
The story goes...Elizabeth Petre, wife to the Chancellor of the Exchequer and daughter to the Prime Minister, has heard rumours that her husband of 16 years, and father to her two sons, is having an affair with an unknown mistress. Determined to win back ANY kind of romance with him, (not that there was much to begin with I might add), she visits with Ramiel Devington. A man born out of wedlock to an Arabian Sheikh and an English Countess. Scorned by society simply because he is a 'Bastard', he and his mother have a very real sense of the world around them. It's reported that he has an extensive knowledge in the art of lovemaking, and therefore, Elizabeth decides to ask him for tutorage in how to seduce her husband.
An agreement is struck by the pair that although he will teach her, there is to be absolutely no touching. This is possibly one of the most erotic things about this book. Most of it is pure discussion, (until later on of course!) The picture Ms.

I have been an avid reader since I was a little girl. I read all genres,but I confess romance is my favorite. Of all the thousands of books I'veread THIS book completely knocked me over. Bang! Sprawled on the floor,knocked-out!!
I ADORE romance and I love hot and sexy books. The problem is they seemto be mutually exclusive. Whenever I read a hot book I find the romancelacking and most truly romantic books fall short in the "hot"-department. This book has both in spades!
I came across Robin Schone here on the Amazon website and ordered all 4 ofher novels on a whim. I read 3 of them in 3 days! I think this should clueyou in how obsessed I've become with Ms Schone's writing...
The Lady's Tutor offers a beautifully written story of 2 people getting toknow each other. Elizabeth goes to Ramiel because she wants her husbandto come to her bed instead of going to his mistress. She is very insecurebut feels she has the right to know her husbands embrace again and have areal marriage. She yearns for love and intimacy, having been shunned foryears. Ramiel agrees to teach her how to seduce her husband, without everlaying a hand on her. As the lessons progress, the tension rises... ThenElizabeth decides she's had enough and goes to her husband to seduce him. I won't divulge any more details, lets just say that we're just halfwayinto the book at this part. There are some shocking revelations and thesituation isn't as clear cut is it seems!
This book is totally hot, but the relationship between Ramiel andElizabeth IS there. As the reader you can FEEL what's between them. It isa very erotic book, and so very romantic it made me cry in the end. Idon't care what other people say, for me this book will be cherished.
Her other 3 books are also amazing, but you should know that The Lover andGabriel's woman are disturbing. They're gorgeous, but they don't cut thereader any slack. You might want to know this before reading them. Justmake sure you DO read them!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As in The Lover this book is very explicit sexually. Elizabeth wants to learn how to seduce her husband. She asks Ramiel, a half arab, half english lord, known as the bastard sheik. Elizabeth thinks her husband has a mistress but his secret is far more disturbing than that.
Someone is trying to kill her and she thinks its her husband. She leaves him and moves in with her tutor, Ramiel. This is where the lessons she has learned are put into practice. Ramiel has taught Elizabeth how to please a man for himself, not her husband.
This story is wonderfull, there is not as much sex as in The Lover, but this does not take anything away from it. I have now ordered all of Robin's books and cannot wait to read them. I do hope this is not the last we see of Ramiel and Elizabeth. They make a wonderful couple. Please keep them in your future books Robin.

Once in a rare while you start reading a book and you find yourself fighting between the desperate urge to finish it and to put it down and not finish it because you don't want it to end. The Lady's Tutor is the first book that I have read by Ms Schone and I am grieved that I did not discover the book when it was first published. It is a Victorian romance with the leading players, the wife of the chancellor of the exchequer, and the bastard son of a countess a half Arab Lord. It is the story of the lady's quest to learn how to satisfy a husband who has no sexual interest in her and the man who she asks to teach her the finer techniques in the art of lovemaking. Robin Schone has been maligned by some, ridiculed and lambasted for the graphic sexual scenes, many taken from the Arab treatise of lovemaking-' The Perfumed Garden' and her writing criticised for not belonging in the romance genre. I would most certainly disagree. It is the most sensually charged, beautiful book that I have ever read. Indeed it goes several steps further than the 'hot' romances that we the romance readers are used to. It has the sweating and the panting and reference to calls of nature. So what? It's only reality. Yes of course we read romance for escapism but then we also want to believe that romance is real do we not? This book is real and the things that happen, can and do. It certainly taught me a thing or two that I didnt know before! For those who condemn it I would point out that the cover states the book is an erotic romance which is exactly what it is. If you do not like graphic sexual scenes then do not read this book. I have read erotica that has left me with a sense of nastiness.Read more ›
