    Instead Caroline asks Braden to teach her how to seduce Hurst. Though he wants to avoid simmering virgins, he agrees because he believes she knows the identity of Jacquelyn's lover and his lovemaking skills will soon have her reveal the individual. However, Braden soon wonders who is educating who as they soon both want to become a permanent relationship.

    EDUCATING CAROLINE is an inviting Victorian romance that is at its best when it is a tale of the manners of the elite in and out of the boudoir. The infusion of a well written and exciting mystery add suspense and action, but actually takes away from an amusing yet powerful bedroom drama starring a delightful pair. Patricia Cabot provides readers have a novel that is an impressive yarn that will furbish plenty of pleasure for fans.
