Lessons from a Courtesan
Jenna Petersen
Avon Mass Market
**** +

         All of London is abuzz about the beautiful courtesan Ria. Justin
Talbot, Earl of Baybary, is idly curious about her... until he sees her face
and realizes that she is his wife! He married Victoria three years ago in an
enforced arrangement with her father, and he left her at his country estate,
while he returned to his life in Town. While he'd like to say he'd never
given her a second thought, that is far from the truth. And now he must make
sure she takes no lover but him-- and find out what she's up to.
         One of Victoria's friends, Chloe, is a courtesan in London, but
she recently disappeared. Now Victoria is pretending to be a courtesan in
order to find Chloe. She can't let Justin interfere with her plans. But
every time she approaches any man who might have information, Justin
indicates that she's already taken... and inflames her passions. He might be
of help to her investigation, but she knows she cannot trust him.
          With her latest, Jenna Petersen takes one giant step towards
being one of the leading lights of Regency historical romance. While her
hero spends much of the book being hard to like, the plot will hold your
attention, and the sexual tension smolders.
