    It’s been a while since I’ve read an erotic historical romance that was this HOT and you know what? I LIKED IT!!!!

    This book kept me interested and wanting to just keep on reading. I liked the story very much but must say that I liked the sex/love scenes even better.

    The characters to me were well written and I really liked them a lot. These two had fantastic chemistry right from the beginning. The ending was really good, giving me the HEA I always’ want.

    I’m glad this is going to be a series and of course I plan on continuing with it. I hope in the next book, For Desire Alone, that we get glimpses of Lysandra and Andrew and get to see them settled down and well married.

    If you are in the mood for an erotic historical that will singe your fingers while reading and have you squirming in your seat, than I say, look no more and give this book a try.

    Pros: I really enjoyed this story. It was emotional, steamy, and well paced. I found it to be quite a page turner. Its a story about a lonely grief stricken man that decides as a favor to a past acquaintance; to train a naive girl to be a skilled mistress so she can make a good future match. The girl is a young lady that carries a heavy burden of caring for her sickly mother on her own. Her past employer and her ‘loving’ relatives have all take advantage of her. Its a touching tale of two people coming together to heal each other. The whole ‘teaching’ aspect of it creates some HOT scenes. The author did such a good job of this without going over the top. The sex scenes are numerous and very steamy. If as reader you don’t like numerous love scenes, don’t read this story. I saw some reviews that said this was just dressed up smut. It’s NOT smut BY ANY MEANS. Common sense tells you that this will be about sex by just reading the very obvious title. Not everyone likes that, and that is perfectly fine Just know before going into it… ; )

    Cons: There were only a couple things that bothered me. There was not near enough character descriptions…you get a vague sense of how they looked but not much else. How tall is Andrew compared to Lysandra? Does she come to his shoulder, chin, nose. How long is Andrews’s hair…long, short…is it curly, wavy, or straight? We know it’s blonde but thats it. What does his brother Sam look like? We never even get a description of him..Some might feel if I’m being overly picky here, but these little extra things help create a deeper picture of the characters. Some authors defiantly over do it with flowery descriptions, but a little extra would have been nice in this story. I also would would have like an epilogue…it sort of ended abruptly.

    Regardless, this a GREAT story, and I will defiantly be checking this author out again!
    Happy Reading!!

    If you like a story with a strong heroine, devoted to her mother, who takes on whatever challenge she faces, you will like this story. I did not like the hero, who I believe was deluding himself and making the heroine suffer needlessly until he came to his senses and finally gave us (the reader) what we wanted him to do. But the title is a bit misleading, because the matchmaker does not get too much of her personal story told in this book. If the reader likes voyeurism, then there is a bit of that element in this story. Overall, I will try other stories by this author based on my introduction of her work in this book.
