But Lionel didn't just need love now; with six rebellious sons from a previous marriage, he needed help. And Sophie seemed to be the perfect choice. A woman bold enough to research erotic texts in his father's library could surely handle his hellions. And if she would put into practice what she had learned in those erotic texts - he would finish what began at that kissing gate long ago.
A funny, erotic tale.

Regardless of how many sex book Sophie had exposrue had read, I find really don't think a spinster would be as sexually aggressive a she was towards Lionel.
I also did not like the way Lionel's SIX sons took over the story. After they came on the scene, the romance was really almost like an after thought.
I would not recommend this book or buy another work by this writer.
Rustic neighbor and daughter of the local squire, Sophie Bowerbank gets Lionel's hellions out of trouble. Lionel decides she would be the perfect tutor for his three sons not away at school. He also remembers her as the girl he kissed at THE KISSING GATE two decades ago and would not mind renewing that practice. Sophie has dreamed of Lionel since those kisses, but finds the man is much more as she knows now that she has always loved him, but hides that because he shows no indication that he feels the same way towards her, which of course we readers know he does.
This second chance at love regency is a fine tale due to the lead couple and his six sons, who add humor and drama with their exploits. A subplot involving a malevolent person who wants to keep the adults apart seems unnecessary as Lionel and Sophie have enough on their plate to contend with. Still fans will enjoy Fiona Carr's fine romance.
