Educating Caroline, by Patricia Cabot

Genre: Romance, historical

Spoiler free description: When Lady Caroline sees her fiancee having sex with another woman, she examines her options and decides the only thing she can do is learn enough about bedroom things to be both a wife and a mistress to her fiancee. After asking around a bit she realizes she wants to learn (theory, of course) only from the best. So she seeks him out and asks to teach her. Patricia Cabot also writes young adult books as Meg Cabot (The Princess Diaries)

The best: Really well written and funny! This is not your typical historical. The irreverent stream of conciousness of Caroline especially is extremely entertaining. I especially like the scene where Caroline approaches Braden and the many misunderstandings that occur in that conversation!

The worst: Caroline's fiancee. I know she needed one for the plot, but he was kind of boring.

Would you recommend this book? Absolutely!!!
