Teach Me by Cassandra Dean

Ever curious, Elizabeth, Viscountess Rocksley, has turned her curiosity to erotic pleasure. Three years a widow, she boldly employs the madame of a brothel for guidance but never had she expected her education to be conducted by a coldly handsome peer of the realm.

To the Earl of Malvern, the erotic tutelage of a skittish widow is little more than sport, however, the woman he teaches is far from the mouse he expects. With her sly humor and insistent joy, Elizabeth obliterates all his expectations and he, unwillingly fascinated, can't prevent his fall.

Each more intrigued than they are willing to admit, Elizabeth and Malvern embark upon a tutelage that will challenge them, change them, come to mean everything to them...until a heartbreaking betrayal threatens to tear them apart forever.

Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by Sarah L. Review Copy Provided by the Publisher Teach Me captures your attention right from the start with Elizabeth waiting in a brothel for the Madame to arrive to give her guidance on erotic pleasure only to have James, the Earl of Malvern, appear unexpectedly at the door instead. They embark on a journey where James teaches Elizabeth everything she needs to know about giving and receiving pleasure. I really enjoyed getting to know both characters. Elizabeth seemed quiet and shy on the surface but underneath she was courageous, determined and willing to go outside of her comfort zone. James on the other hand appears cold and hard however having been deserted by his mother at a young age and pushed into decadence by his degenerate father at an early age, he is actually very scared to let someone close. It was nice to watch their relationship develop from a cold, business transaction into a warm, tender romance neither expected. Be prepared to experience a wide range of emotions. I found myself laughing, crying, blushing and even yelling at times. This was my first Cassandra Dean novel and I look forward to reading hopefully many more in the future.

A near innocent widow who has never experienced passion approaches a madam for insight into said subject matter, but the widow never expected the schooling to be hands on with a jaded rake. The rake makes the rules and takes a cool, clinical approach to passion, but the widow's warm and untutored responses soon put the rake's cynical but well-fortified heart in danger. A sizzling read.

From their unconventional initial meeting to their continuing emotional encounters, the journey to HEA for widow Elizabeth and hardhearted Malvern is one full of twists and turns. Both of them are not what they first appear and only through their increasingly erotic encounters do reader's discover another side to them that makes for a compelling read. Elizabeth is an unexpected heroine with her inquisitive nature and desire to experience life to the fullest. This goes against what most women of the time are taught and leads her to a sexual exploration with the fully debauched Malvern who tries to keep things cold and clinical. Elizabeth is an outspoken woman full of energy and warmth who's not afraid to form connections. She doesn't want to flaunt her desires, as she worries about what her family thinks of her, but she's not willing to ignore them any longer either. I applaud her standing up for what she wants, even though she's quite shy in their early encounters, and I enjoyed seeing the pupil become the teacher when it came to matters of the heart. Malvern was rather difficult to like at first as he was very cold, detached, and unemotional. He sees women as mere amusement and when they don't want to play he discards them, as he's done to two mistresses. His father taught him at a VERY early age about sex and all the hedonistic intricacies of the debauched lifestyle. There's nothing he hasn't done when it comes to sex which has led to boredom, boredom of life with all his previous encounters very superficial. He never took the time to know those he had sex with as he wasn't taught how to form positive relationships but with Elizabeth she forces him to open up just as she opens up to him. It's heartwarming seeing him become a better man, a more emotionally open one, though his emotional rebirth hits a rocky patch towards the end of the story. Against what I thought possible I came to like Malvern and was sympathetic towards him with his dysfunctional upbringing and loved seeing him truly come alive with tangible emotions on display. Ultimately this is a story about two lost souls finding one another. Elizabeth is lost in a role dictated by society who longs for more and Malvern has had his emotions buried by a coldly detached father which left him living but not at all full of life. Their increasingly erotic encounters ultimately led to a deep and abiding connection where both are allowed to fully embrace who they've become. Though parts of the story seem unrealistic Ms. Dean has a way of glossing over those issues to fully immerse you in the character's outcomes. She doesn't shy away from the gritty and steamy side of sex and had me seeing the Victorian-era in a whole new light and I definitely recommend this to fans of erotica.

This was a wonderful book. I loved it. Towards the end I wanted to kick James' butt for pushing Elizabeth away but because he was so miserable and finally able to face the truth that he needed Elizabeth I was able to continue liking him. Elizabeth was a wonderful character full of mischief and laughter. I love how she is portrayed as a timid mouse at the beginning but then her sparkling personality is shown and I couldn't help but like her. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read more from this author.
