Brianna the dukes new wife purchases a book written by a courtesan then procedes to practice what the courtesan suggests for the bedroom. Colton "the duke" is astounded but enjoys the unexpected excitement, everything is such a success that the book is passed on to her unmarried friend who is in love with Robert the dukes brother. However all is not as straight forward as it may seem?
The book was enjoyable and easy to read. A nice easy romance that gives you two stories rolled into one I would recommend it.

Since the other reviewer has written a bit about the plot I'm just going to say that this book was excellent. A great story, which was logical, amusing and tender.
It absolutely made sense that the Duke of Rolthven couldn't understand how his new wife, Brianna, who had been a virgin when they married, suddenly was doing all these sexually adventureous 'stuff' when he hadn't taught her them! He was very perplexed even though he enjoyed what she was doing.
The secondary plot is OK as well but the main plot is why this book is a keeper for me.

A young bride finds a scandalous book that provides many ideas for attracting the interest of a man. She loves her new husband, but is unhappy with his reserve. Meanwhile, her friend has fallen for the husband's rakish younger brother, of whom her father seriously disapproves. Both ladies take advantage of Lady Rothburg's Advice to try to get their men...
I found this quite a lot of fun. The characters are nicely rounded and the period details ring true.
