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. Schone paints of Ramiel and Elizabeth, he so well educated on the subject and she so very innocent and naive, is outstandingly done. You can almost smell the Turkish coffee and hear the logs in the fire popping as Elizabeth is slowly but surely awoken as a woman with desires and wants that she need not be ashamed of.
The story that threads it's way through, almost in the background, builds as the pages turn. It gathers momentum until you find yourself reading at 4 o'clock in the morning and STILL not wanting to put the book down! It is not a pleasant story and it is told in all it's ugliness but, I feel that only adds to the greatness of the book. It's all very nice and cosy to read a romance set in Victorian London with bustles and bonnets aplenty, but nobody until now has been brave enough to write about the REAL Victorian London. The harsh reality is here in all it's unrefined glory.
There are many great characters in this book, all with their own history. From Elizabeth and Ramiel for obvious reasons, to his mother and his servant. All require attention as they all have something to say. The 'baddies' in this story are truly horrendous, and although you can probably work out who Edward Petre's mistress is fairly early on, you are hit later by other facts that you just couldn't possibly anticipate.
Please put aside any prudishness you may have before reading this book. If you get even slightly embarrassed or uncomfortable reading explicit sex scenes then steer well clear of this novel. If you do so however, you will be depriving yourself of an extremely well written, well thought out and most romantic book I have ever had the pleasure to read. This is definately one to keep and will not surprisingly be the most worn book in your collection.
Read this with half as much enjoyment as I have and you will be very happy!
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!!
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.
