Unfortunately, Victorian society do not allow for a b This was one of my first books in the romance genre and I was a little bit skeptical — but the rage reviews convinced me to give it a try.
Unfortunately, Carooine society do not allow for a broken engagement over such a trifle.
The teller knows it all and allows us to see the thoughts of several characters, only one at each instant. I really liked this story telling, especially that we get to follow both Caroline and Braden through their struggles. The main plot is the tutelage between Braden and Caroline and this plot is wonderful. Their chemistry is to die for and the romance incredibly hot.
However, all is not easy when it comes to true love. Both stories unfold beautifully and intertwine in the end of the book. The love story was the very best — I truly cared for both Caroline and Braden wishing them both a very happy ending. Their love connection was smoking hot and totally absorbed me from reality.
The characters developed nicely during the book and as I learned more and more about them I loved the more and more. Jun 18, Mandapanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’m rereading some old favourites because there aren’t many new releases that appeal at the moment. Long before author Meg Cabot became a famous Carolnie author of books like The Princess Diariesshe wrote sexy adult historical romances under the pseudonym Patricia Cabot.
Educating Caroline is a hidden gem which deserves to be a lot pateicia known than it is. Lady Caroline Linford is an intelligent but naive society Miss who has recently become engaged to the man who saved patridia brother’s life. But at a b I’m rereading some old favourites because there aren’t many new releases that appeal at the moment.
But at a ball she discovers her fiance ravishing another woman and everything she believed about love and marriage is upturned.
Her mother offers no sympathy and instead castigates Caroline for not making herself attractive enough to her fiance. Caroline turns to Braden Granville, the Lothario of London whose own fiance was the other woman for theoretical ‘lessons’ on love and desire. Braden Granville is a boy from the streets made good. His business has made him wealthy and given him entree into the upper echelons of society. Now 31 he has decided to marry and affianced himself to the delectable but morally challenged Lady Jacqueline.
He soon realises his fiance is cheating on him and only after his money but is reluctant to break the engagement and have to pay a large breach of contract suit. Instead he is trying to catch her red-handed with one of her paramours and prove that she is the guilty party in the breakup. It is at one of these moments that he spies Lady Caroline who has just witnessed the two guilty fiancees together.
Caroline and Granville subsequently form a business deal to help them both get what they desire but what starts out to be all about their partners soon becomes all about their own new feelings. Caroline is adorably susceptible to Granville’s “lessons”. When he kisses her she forgets everything and everyone around her and afterwards can’t believe or even understand how he got so far. The author writes this part so well. You can really feel how amazed Caroline is by the newness and previously unimaginable passion of her responses.
There is an ongoing thread in the story where Granville notices that Caroline is becoming more and more beautiful each time he sees her. He is totally befuddled by this and can’t understand how he didn’t see it from the beginning. Of course we as the readers know it’s because he’s falling in love with her but watching his bemusement is both amusing and endearing. The plot involving Caroline’s brother and an evil underworld figure adds suspense and action to the story and it’s a great vehicle for Granville to come and save the day and win the girl.
The secondary characters are delightful, the servants, Tommy and Emily. Even the bad guys are well fleshed out and given some comic moments of their own. Caroline’s pragmatic view of the suffrage movement is hilarious.
I love every word of this novel and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a witty and charming historical romance. View all 3 comments. Feb 08, Vintage rated it liked it Shelves: I am going to start with what worked and what did not work before I do my plot rehash.
The two major characters are well done. Caroline is spunky, smart and quite curious when it comes to sex as long as it isn’t her fiancee, the rather pretty and boring Marquis. Braden, the H, is a fish out of Victorian water, a self made man, he is a big, huge bruiser who falls for Caroline’s sweetness and sense of honor.
The writing is light but not frothy. For some reason, the book did not catch for me, but th I am going to start with what worked and what did not work before I do my plot rehash. The story starts with a bang, literally. Poor Caroline sees her fiancee in flagrante delicto with the beautiful but despicable Lady Jacqueline. Lady J happens to be engaged to the supremely attractive, supremely wealthy but baseborn Seven Dials survivor, Braden Granville awesome name who is doing his best to find out who Lady J is trysting with.
And so, just outside the little den of iniquity, our H and h meet. While Caroline is only engaged to the cheating Marquis as he saved her brother from dying from a gunshot wound, her mother is supremely unsympathetic over Caroline’s desire to cancel the engagement. It just isn’t done and no one will marry her. Can’t have a spinster! Braden has his own problems.
If he cancels HIS engagement, educaating proud but poverty stricken Jacqueline will take him for all he’s worth over the broken contract. To make a long story short, Caroline extends the meet cute into an opportunity to be schooled by Braden in the art of love and seduction hence the Educating portion of the title.
Caroline comes armed with spectacles and notepaper but Braden has a more empirical experience planned. Despite his experience, the H is known as the Lothario of London, he is quite smitten with little miss innocent. One might almost call it love.
The rest of the plot unfolds carroline Caroline is drawn more and more to Braden and his awesome physicality while Lady J plot with the Marquis to keep the affair alive and marry Braden for money. There is a parallel plotline regarding the Marquis and his involvement with the man that shot Caroline’s brother, but I skimmed it.
She is such an entitled and titled pill, she certainly deserves more of a comeuppance that having to patriciw an older man rather than a lover worthy of the name “Lothario of London”.
Aug 12, Kylara Jensen rated it it was ok Shelves: A long time ago, I liked to collect books written by my favorite authors. Consequently I bought this book along with two others, because I love Meg Cabot. Which is ok, because these three historical romances have pretty much the same plot anyway.
These books really pissed me off. Like to the point where I’m done with historical romances, except I’ll still read Georgette Heyer.
