    The Education Of Mrs. Brimley is a sensational debut novel by Donna MacMeans. Emma Heatherston flees London after she overhears her uncle's plans for her future. She runs to Yorkshire to be a teacher at The Pettibone School for Young Ladies. There Emma takes on a new role as widow Emma Brimley. Emma's first night she meets her neighbor the notorious Lord Nicholas Chambers. Lord Nicholas Chambers likes his quiet peaceful life painting in the countryside. His first meeting of the Widow Brimley intrigues him. For a widow there is something innocent about Emma. Emma is shocked to learn that besides literature she is to teach bedroom etiquette. Emma turns to Nicholas for help. But this help has a price. Nicholas makes a deal with Emma, he will answer all her questions if she poses for him. What starts out as a test of wills turns into a love of a lifetime. But can Nicholas protect Emma when her Uncle finds out where she has been hiding? The Education of Mrs. Brimley is a superb novel. It's witty, tender and passionate. The characters feel like old friends by the time you are finished. I am really looking forward to the next book by this author.

    Victorian romance fans will enjoy this fun frolic

    In 1876 Emma Brimley leaves London hoping to obtain teaching position at the Pettibone School for Young Ladies in Yorkshire. Knowing that a miss would be unacceptable, Emma claims she is a young widow. When she succeeds in gaining the job, she is elated, but is stunned by her students not much younger than her who want to know the details involving sleeping with a husband. Emma¿s problem is that she is as ignorant as they are, as she is a virgin.------------ Artist Lord Nicholas Chambers wants Emma to pose for him. A notorious rake who quotes Byron, she thinks he could prove an enlightened source so she agrees to be his model at Black Oak Manor if he answers her questions on intimacy but he offers to show instead of tell. As they fall in love, Emma fears her heart will soon bust while Nicholas dreads the scandalous portrait of her will cost him her.------------ Victorian romance fans will enjoy this fun frolic starring two likable protagonists who fall in love while he trains her in the art of love. The droll double entendres make for an intelligent amusing historical as the student teaches the teacher as much as he does her.-------- Harriet Klausner
