In this, her first new book in five years, she delivers a poignant, funny, sexy, Regency romance sure to delight her many fans and attract a whole new readership. Trevelyan and Callie are childhood sweethearts with a taste for adventure, until the fateful day her father discovers them embracing in the carriage house and, in a furious frenzy, drives Trevelyan away in disgrace. Nine long, lonely years later, Trevelyan returns. Callie discovers that he can still make her blood race and fill her life with excitement, but he can't give her the one thing she wants more than anything—himself. For Trevelyan, Callie is a spark of light in a world of darkness and deceit.
Ohhhhh, this is better than Christmas! Welcome back, Miss L. And I remember a Patti too. If so, welcome back!
Laughing Rachel, just what I like to hear. And I have missed the boards and sharing ideas and discussions with you and the rest of this excellent crew.
BTW, I really love the new website design. I have been looking for a Regency Romance writer whose book has the feel of the period and I think I may have found her. I look forward to discovering Ms. When will French Lessons be available on Amazon Kindle? So it will probably be sometime around late Jan or early Feb.
What a fun ride! I have a fairly big keeper shelf. Plus I have backup copies in a fire and water safe file cabinet. Worth all the waiting—thank you for such a lovely story. Another gift to us all. I so want to revisit the Quaker Lady and her buffle-headed duke. Thank you for this wonderful tale. And that the surprise was a surprize.
Good for you, we should all have one of those for important papers. Sarah, I agree, I love the new re-issue covers. I hope they come out in as lovely colors as the scans appear to be. Loved it, loved it! Callie was so sweet, and Trev—just to die for. A worldview and plot line not confined to the aristocracy. Real fleshed out laborers, farmers, cottagers. Always real fleshed out animals, too - the animal parts of Lessons in French, well really in all LK, always seem so well-researched without seeming… well-researched.
Same too when specialized jargon is used - like the boxing slang or the nautical language in Seize the Fire Ended the book wondering - was her fortune in tact or not?
I stayed up until a. And I loved that Callie had a deep interest in cattle. So atypical for a Regency miss. Thank you for a delightful book. And for a delighful little mystery, too.
You blindsided me on the resolution—I never saw it coming. Which of course made the book all the more entertaining! Laura does comedy so well. The witty banter is the best! So I was hoping maybe a few readers would be too! Actually, I probably need to get it anyway. Congratulations, LK! I made it. Whew, I made it! I loved the humor, the characters, the setting and the love story. I will be reading and rereading this story, as I do with all of your novels.
Graci  Posted by laura kinsale on It was beautiful and heartwarming, and I was very pleased with the ending!! But for now, I will re-read this one, along with Flowers From the Storm which is on my mind…and Shadow and the Star… Happy writing…Dreamer  Posted by laura kinsale on My copy has several blurred but readable pages, and a steep incline from left to right.
It sounds like maybe your copy went through the press wrong. Here is the contact info for Sourcebooks, the publisher: They have been extremely pro-active with addressing problems.
In France a group of top gynecologists led by M. The Shadow and the Star is perhaps the most perfect romance ever written. Thank you so much. I love that idea! I am still smiling! Now I get to go back and read this charmer all over again to pick up on all the little nuances I have surely missed through my first desparate,giddy read. Love the Regency setting,love Hubert!
He may be your best animal character yet. Hey Yummy! I was so tickled to see your name. This is like a homecoming. It is the same Patti, Laura. I have missed everybody too. I hope you know you never lost any of us.
We have been out here waiting patiently for the new book, and now this lovely new site. Congratulations, both were efinitely worth the wait!
By the by,does anyone have a bit of jewelry, or a pretty fan I might borrow? Where is Thomas when you need him? I was wondering if it had some sort of clause against Trev in particular or potential fortune hunters in general.
Thanks again, Lena  Posted by SandyO on Now, I shall curl up with a pot of tea and the book. Plus, we are all highly distracted down here because the Saints are in the Superbowl which, coincidentally means that hell hath frozen over!
Following the superbowl is Mardi Gras! Hey, SandyO! Good luck to the Saints, Yummy! I have no dog in that fight. Married women did not have a legal existence—in the common law they became, legally, the same as their husband on marriage, and everything they owned outright became his property.
So trusts were used extensively to protect and control female assets. Since his wife was happy to get rid of Callie, and C was a better bookkeeper anyway, I think there would be no problem with Cousin Jasper giving C full control of her own accounts—in practice, if not in a legal sense.
This was not uncommon either. Bought it immediately and read it all in one sitting, until 2am. Loved it - worth the wait! Also worth the four cups of coffee I had to drink to stay awake at work today…. Thanks, I love hearing I made readers sit up all night. Love Trev. The Saints win last night was absolutely insane, as was the Cuuurrrraaazzzy frenzy afterwards.
My friends and I headed to the Quarter with a few hundred thousand other friends and soaked up the revelry and the glory. But, I had Trev on my mind even then, dammit! Take care, and thank you!
How can you not love a hero who falls in love at 16 and despite all of life in between never stops loving her? How can you not love a heroine who knows everything about raising bulls? How can you not love a book that keeps you smiling from beginning to end. Except for the teary parts.
This is my kind of historical. No need to resolve some great evil. No major mystery to solve. Just a plot driven by getting together these two people who are meant to be together and plot devices that arise from the lives they have chosen to live, and the time they live in, instead of some forced mysterious doings or ridiculous intrigue.
I love your dark brooding characters, too. Otherwise they would not have been so compelling. Your writing range is amazing. I admit that I was frustrated with the obstacles that kept Callie and Trev apart, particularly their stubborn insistence that they couldn't be together. Trev didn't believe he could offer Callie a good life, even though he had money. His name was mud in England, and she is the daughter of an earl who once slashed his face with a riding crop and ran him off after catching he and Callie in a compromising position.
Callie has been rejected so much, she doesn't think much of her looks and the ability for a man to love her, even though Trev says numerous times how much he loves her even before she does.
I wanted to yell at them to just take what they wanted--each other. Run off together, already!!! I just had to keep reading. It's hard to say if this book will appeal to some readers of historical romance. The relationship between Trev and Callie is the lynchpin of this story, but their love story unfolds slowly through their interactions with each other and the various characters that they encounter in their complicated lives.
For readers who like that sort of dynamic, a fuller story in which the main couple plays their roles, I think they would enjoy this book. It felt very authentic and period, which I am always happy about when it comes to historical romance. This was no modern love story wrapped up in costume drama. The characters were people of their time, with all the expected social values, expectations, and hangups.
I loved the mostly subtle, but sometimes laugh-out-loud humor. Die-hard romantic that I am, I found the deep, intense love between Callie and Trev irresistible, and I felt their longing and frustration for them to be together, even though circumstances seemed to work against them at every turn.
They were committed to living their lives apart, but it was clear their lives weren't complete without each other. Even though the love scenes aren't terribly detailed, I felt the passion between Callie and Trev.
I really rooted for them, and I loved the end of this book. It wraps everything up very nicely, with a very happy ending for this couple, on many levels. Lessons in French was a sweet, delicious, and unique love story. I'm glad that Ms. Kinsale took a chance and wrote something that is quite different from her other books.
