Can so young and inexperienced a woman tutor him in the manners and mores of his class? Leo's mysterious past has rendered him an outsider, too wild for polite society. But he finds her innocence most intriguing. . .

"A first-class debut. Lori Brighton is a bright new voice to watch closely." --Hannah Howell
My Review:
Another enjoyable read from author Lori Brighton. This exciting tale is based on a man that has survived as a child in the Indian jungle after his parents were killed and now his grandfather wants to groom him into a gentleman. Through the whole story your constantly wondering what kind of trouble he is going  to get into. He is anything but a gentleman. His grandfather hires a governess named Ella to try and teach him what he needs to know in order to be a gentleman. From history to the proper use of your utensils. She was assuming her students would be children and she is very shocked to learn that its a full grown man. Much less a very handsome man.  

Lori did a great job of making the story flow naturally. The plot developed at a steady pace. I never felt bored and I was constantly wanting to see what Leo was going to do next. Although it did seem like it was rather easy for him to get Ella naked. The characters were cute and the story had a good plot but I didn't really connect with the characters so they didn't elicit any emotions in me which I love about a great book. For this I gave the book 3 hearts instead of 4 or 5. 

I would definitely recommend this book to historical romance fans. It was a really cute story with some of sexually explicit scenes but not many. I enjoyed this book but I have to say it doesn't compare to her fabulous paranormal book I read previously. 

Overall rating:

Sex rating:
This is a added rating system to grade the sexual content in the book. The system goes from 1 - 5 lighting bolts.

Great and honest review, Danielle! It's too bad that the characters couldn't elicit any emotions in you.
I was wondering if your sex rating of 3 is on a scale of 5 or maybe 3... or 10...
