    Robert Carroway, her friend Georgiana's brother-in-law, is a man who has been ravaged by the horrors of war, and is in a constant state of silence, barely speaking to anyone, except Lucinda.
    Robert knows about the lessons, since he does nothing but observe and listen and asks Lucinda who she has chosen. From this point, Robert and Lucinda's lives become interwoven, with her helping him to overcome his past and in return he helps her deliver her lessons.

Lucinda Barrett, Georgiana Haley, and Evie Ruddick are tired of the misbehavior of the aristocratic males with money. Each one agrees to select a lord as an object of lessons on proper deportment towards ladies. Shockingly Georgiana (see THE RAKE) and Evie (see LONDON'S PERFECT SCOUNDREL) have married their “students”. Now it is Lucinda's turn to tutor her target.

Lucinda thinks Geoffrey Newcombe would be perfect not so much because he needs instruction, but because she believes he would make a perfect spouse for her. As she makes her play, Lucinda thinks a lot about Navy Lieutenant Robert Carroway. She finds herself falling in love with Georgiana's brother-in-law instead of the object she selected. However, Robert suffers from some form of post battle syndrome and cannot compete for the affections of Lucinda with the dashing Geoffrey.

The third and final novel in Suzanne Enoch's delightful “Lessons in Love” trilogy is a fun tale starring an intrepid heroine, a “perfect” object, and a brooding hero with mental war injuries. The story line moves quickly forward as Robert wants Lucinda, but feels his injuries from the Napoleonic War makes him unsuitable for the woman he loves. Lucinda on the other hand believes that the perfect paragon Geoffrey is her ideal though her dreams keep telling her to follow her heart not her brain. Though a final character twist seems unnecessary except to expedite the decision process, fans will appreciate this wonderful ending to a fine Regency series.
