Overview

The Education of Mrs. Brimley by Donna MacMeans

Emma Brimley, new teacher at Pettibone School for Young Ladies, believed no harm would result from her claim to be a widow. But when she arrives in Yorkshire, the innocent young lady is horrified to discover she's expected to prepare her students for the intimacies of marriage. She can't lose her post as a teacher. In desperation, she turns to the alluring--and annoying--neighboring artist. He might be a dandy and a reprobate, but "Lord Bedchambers" might also be the only one who can help her.
 
Lord Nicholas Chambers, black sheep of his family, needs a model for his entry into the Royal Academy's exhibition. He offers the new teacher a scandalous bargain: he'll answer her questions about anatomy and bedroom etiquette if she poses for him. For every question answered, she must remove an item of clothing as his model. But what started out as a game of wits quickly becomes a game of the heart. And Mrs. Brimley may not be the only one getting an education in the sweet rewards of seduction.

Awful non-story. Stupid, empty, boring, waste of time and money. You can read the back flap of the book and know everything that awaits within: not much. It reminds me that I keep these lists so that I don't mistakenly buy this author again.

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.

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
