Synopsis

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 anything—himself.

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

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.

This means that instead of more of Trev and Callie bantering and making out, we get to spend time with a rather dull – though at least two-dimensional – secondary character.
