It had a little humor and romance..it was good. I would of gave it 5 stars but I felt the ending was a a little rushed..and there was only 2 love scene's ..and no epilogue .. the love scene's were a little flat for me, there didn't seem like there was a lot of passion. But it was good and I liked her writing style. Just think it could of been a little better.

Everyone has a right to expect that you will have someone to love Caroline has known since she was thirteen years old the Ronan was the man she would love forever.   Her only goal was to grow up so they could marry and live happily ever after regardless of what it takes to achieve that goal.   Caroline did not know that while Ronan may have wanted all these things as well he understood they would never happen, his family responsibilities demanded he choose another path for his life. Ronan had to fight for every amount of money he could obtain regardless of the circumstances of their acquisition to help keep himself and his family financially solvent.   The finances are obtained a variety of ways one of which included brokering his affections toward lonely women of the ton.  Caroline felt destiny brought them together while Ronan saw that as what kept them apart.   Ronan may love Caroline and she may make every breath he takes worth living for, but those feelings have to be controlled and he will do so as his circumstances have deemed necessary. Caroline finds a way to stack the deck in her favor and attempt to make Ronan realize they should be together.  When the plan backfires Caroline is left devastated and Ronan realizes the mistake he made by letting her go searches for a way to win her back.  Who knew that the place that could teach Ronan how to be a man of worth would be a school taught by a Courtesan?  Learning to tell the truth, work through his phobias, and release the joy of his love for Caroline creates a Ronan that has Caroline acknowledging that no one will ever bring her joy but Ronan. Delilah Marvelle graces every word with a prolific sentence that surrounds each paragraph with romance, joy, and the expectation of eternal love.

This was the first series I read of Delilah's and it was years after it was published, I read books one and two back to back, and for the past several years been counting down till she finally had this published. NOTE: I try not to put spoilers in my reviews. I loved how this story began, for some reason it reminded me of me when I was younger..lol I remember being 13 and falling in love... so I could put myself in Lady Caroline's place. I loved Caldwell from the previous book, and he is nothing like I thought he would be in this story... lol which is good, because Delilah keeps us on edge with her writing. This book will hold your attention, you don't know if you're crying, laughing or cheering on the characters in this story... The School of Gallantry is a great series to read and I hope to see more of this series. This is not your average "Romance" book... This book along with the series has a lot of research put into in for all the sexual encounters ... which is great, I love being taken to a place you never thought possible. 5 Stars... Delilah! Keep up the great work!

I have been BEGGING Delilah, on my knees, for years to add to the incredible pleasure read of the School of Gallantry. Finally the planets aligned and Lady of Pleasure is the incredible result. If you think this will be "more of the same" you would be wrong. After all this IS Delilah Marvelle, in all her glorious historical, romantic, splendor. Kind of Fielding meets Euripides. The two sided lucky coin of comedy and tragedy. If you thought you knew Caldwell from the second book in the series, you would be wrong. Caroline's intellect and passions introduced in  the second book, are just a pale shadow of what the reader finds in this third book. She is a strong, intelligent passionate woman, beyond  her years in all those elements. We find out things about her parents and brother and sisters that flip the coin from comedic to tragic then back again. Caldwell's story will break your heart then put it back together again. He is a unique character I have never encountered before outside of  Robin Schone. Caldwell is definitely a darker character than one ever expected from the first two books. He is stunning! He and Caroline together, with the menagerie that is their respective families and friends drag you in to the world of the School of Gallantry and leave you wanting more . . . NOW!  I loved this book and the emotional trip on which it led me. I love this author because of her intellect, her passions, and her incredible  understanding of the tragic and the comedic.
