Publisher Comments:

Laura Kinsale's unique and powerfully written love stories transcend the romance genre. In this, her first new book in five years, she delivers a poignant, funny, sexy, Regency romance sure to delight her many fans and attract a whole new readership.

Trevelyan and Callie are childhood sweethearts with a taste for adventure, until the fateful day her father discovers them embracing in the carriage house and, in a furious frenzy, drives Trevelyan away in disgrace. Nine long, lonely years later, Trevelyan returns. Callie discovers that he can still make her blood race and fill her life with excitement, but he can't give her the one thing she wants more than anythinghimself.

For Trevelyan, Callie is a spark of light in a world of darkness and deceit. Before he can bear to say his last goodbyes, he's determined to sweep her into one last, fateful adventure, just for the two of them. *** Praise for Lessons in French: Laura Kinsale creates magic. Her characters live, breathe, charm, and seduce, and her writing is

as delicious and perfectly served as wine in a crystal glass.

Lisa Kleypas I loved it Lessons in French is a delicious new Kinsale that couples the charm of Midsummer Moon with the intensity

of Seize the Fire or The Shadow and the Star. Intrigue, drama, secrets, passion, and a grand romance make this

a wonderful addition to Laura Kinsale's already excellent repertoire.

Jennifer Ashley ] USA Today bestselling author of The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie A rich and rewarding romance from the legendary Laura Kinsale

Mary Jo Putney ] New York Times bestselling author of Loving a Lost Lord A truly gifted writer, Laura Kinsale is one of the romance genre's brightest stars.

Loretta Chase ] New York Times bestselling author of Don't Tempt Me

Review:

"Often flat and uninspired in its interactions, this by-the-numbers 1820s romance relies on complicated subplots and the heartstring-tugging tale of reunited childhood sweethearts. Lady Callista Taillefaire has been jilted three times and is resolved to devote herself to raising cattle, particularly her prize-winning bull, Hubert. When her lost love, Trevelyn, returns from nine years away, that resolve is firmly tested, but no sooner is their romance rekindled than he is convicted of forgery and forced into exile. Readers may enjoy the history lessons in several creaky but soundly constructed tales of Trevelyn's wartime experiences with another of Callie's former suitors, but Kinsale neglects to fill in the background details for Trevelyn and his unsavory valet, ex-boxer Jock, preferring to follow romance conventions with monotonous regularity." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The RITA Award-winning and "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Prince of Midnight" and "Seize the Fire" delivers another red-hot romance. Original.

Lessons In French is a fun, historical romance set in England soon after the French Revolution. Trevelyn is French nobility with blood ties to the French royal family. Unfortunately, his background hasn't made his life any easier. Instead, the family fortune and ties have meant a heavy burden for Trevelyn as he's tried to reacquire the family estates and Dukedom with his limited resources. After their escape from France, his family settled in the English countryside with limited resources. When Trevelyn's romance with Callie ends in disaster and he's forced to leave, he never expects to return. When he does make it back to England, years later, he is surprised to find Callie living in her old home and unmarried.

His childhood friend and sweetheart, Callie, is of good background and considerable wealth, but Callie's been unlucky in love. She had fallen for Trevelyn when they were younger and though she had made three matches since that time, each of the men had cried off. In her late twenties, Callie is helping her younger sister make a match and doubts that she'll have a home of her own. When Trevelyn returns and speaks of love, while Callie knows that she can trust her old friend, her experience with men makes her skeptical. Trevelyn is willing to do whatever it takes to protect Callie and to prove his loyalty and love.

Lessons in French is a fun, satisfying romance! The friendship and banter between Trevelyn and Callie draw you in and provide a wondreful escape.
