Overview

Who is learning more…the novice? Or the master?

Countess Meredith du Chevalier, a widow with a reputation for being sexually adventurous, is intrigued when she is approached by a gentleman who wishes her to “make a man” of his son. Sensing a passionate man beneath Christopher Whitby’s reserved exterior, Meredith takes on the challenge, inviting the botanist to her country home to revitalize her abandoned greenhouse.

Chris finds people to be a chaotic, animalistic species, and has chosen to devote his life to the study of plants. One kiss from the vivacious countess, however, and his inner animal is aroused. But lust is only a fraction of what he feels for the vulnerable woman hiding behind a brittle façade. He resolves to coax her to grow until her petals unfurl in a glorious bloom.

To her surprise, Meredith finds Chris brings much more to life than just fallow soil. But just as their love begins to thrive, he learns about the secret arrangement. Meredith must risk her heart for the most dangerous lesson of all—love.

    Refreshing

    I really enjoyed this novella. Meredith the older widow makes a deal with Chris.s father to teach his son who is 25 but still a virgin and obsessed with plants to become a man and more confident with women in order to secure a wife and heir. If she succeeds, he wil pass one of her bills. But Chris and Meredith fall in love but when Chris discovers the agreement he feels betrayed. Overall, i enjoyed reading this and it has alot of steamy scenes! The ending though could have closed better but i definitely recommend this 19th century romance. 4.5/5 stars
