All Isabella Eardley wants to do is paint. When Jean Maillot, Isabella's first choice as a painting teacher, declines the request to tutor the talented miss, Harrison Curzon, Maillot's gifted student (as well as London's most notorious rake), offers his services. The author has a good grasp of the Regency era, though a few incidents in the plot may be far-fetched for some readers. Isabella's aspirations to pursue a career in art, as well as the abuse her mother suffers from her lout of a husband, help underscore the limited amount of power women had at the time. Calvin (The Duke's Desire, Signet, 1996), the winner of RWA's Golden Heart Award in 1993, resides in Oklahoma. (JC)
