Sexy, audacious younger man tempts a lonely widow. This isn't a battle of wills, this is a sweet yet spicy story of an affair that leads to deeper attachment. Lady Julia Renwick is portrayed as a nice lady who wants some hot love action and is willing to take risk to attain it. The younger man, the Earl of Bedingfield, is a well-done rakish sort with sensitive, caring side who gives her a gentle push into temptation. The whole story is imbued with a good historical feel. Julia's actions and thoughts are believable for a widow of her time; she doesn't come across as anachronistic in her manner. The way the affair transpires was also believable and suited the times. Ms. Erickson's writing clear and deep in character perspective and sounds historical without being flowery, awkward or wordy. The love scenes are sexily written and infused with plenty of emotion right from the start. Their attraction is instant, steady and overt. The sex happens early and there is no conflict over it. Julia and Bedingfield want the affair and do not hide it from each other. There's mild tension over Bedingfield's vast sexual expertise and Julia's relative lack of experience. Later some conflict arises over Julia's doubts and insecurities about the age difference. These conflicts are worked out in a way that is believable and satisfying. It is a light, straightforward love affair story that turns into a HEA. A very enjoyable quick and sexy read with just the right touch of romance.

Julia, Lady Renwick is a widow. She's spent the last three years in mourning for her late husband. Julia has decided she's perfectly within her rights to discreetly take a lover. She's also decided who she wants that lover to be, Garrett, Earl of Bedingfield. He's younger, devastatingly handsome, and he makes her feel things she never imagined she could feel. She's finally decided to ask him to be her lover for the duration of the Season. Garret, Lord Bedingfield has wanted Julia for months now. All the banal chit chat at punch bowls at various balls is new to him. He's never gone to such lengths or conducted such a slow careful pursuit. He's determined to make his move tonight and hopes he's read the signals correctly and she doesn't rebuff him. LESSONS IN INDISCRETION is a quick read. Julia and Garrett possess strong chemistry and their affair is intense. They not only make love endlessly but they actually talk as much as they make love. Due to the intensity of their passion and unexpected feelings they both get more than the brief sex only affair they set out to have. LESSONS IN INDISCRETION has a sweetness that isn't always present in this type of story. Short on historical detail it's still a satisfying, is somewhat swift, love story that I didn't have any trouble buying into. For all its speed I never doubted Julia and Garrett's feelings for one another. The ending is grand, sweet and scandalous. You'll have to read LESSONS IN INDISCRETION to find out why. I'm looking forward to the next installment in the Merry Widows series. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

Reviewed by Emmarae Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I really didn’t like Julia at first. She was whiny and the author kinda kept dwelling on her insecurity without supporting it by fleshing out the character. I breezed through several pages I thought could have been done better, but stick with it cause it’s worth the read. Garrett is a great little character. The book is not that long, but it’s still a nice little story to read before bed or when you need something quick. It will make you feel sad for the characters when they think they won’t last as a couple, and Garrett’s lovely finale will definitely leave you smiling.
