Happily Ever After Reviews — 4 teacups
This is a fast read but a fun one. Lady Amberly is sufficiently naive but she learns quickly. Her husband Edmund is just aloof enough to keep the reader slightly off balance. Without giving away the surprise, I do have to say that I knew almost from page one what was going to happen but I still enjoyed watching the characters get where they were going.
The love scenes are passionate and it was fun to see Ms. Mathews take an erotic twist on the ton and the ballroom scene. Very fun read.

WOW!! What a hot, sizzling read.
I was hooked from the start and couldn’t stop until the end. Then I was ready to read it again. Hell, I wish it had been longer. I would have loved to have gotten to know the characters better but I realize that the author did a bang up job and I am totally happy with what I got.

This is a sweet little gem of a Regency romance that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Meta Mathews’ foray into erotica is off to a wonderful start. I really fell in love with this story. I felt Melloney’s pain at learning of her husband’s betrayal and even though it was a little easy for me to guess what was going to happen, I still could not stop reading until I reached the last word. I look forward to reading more from Meta.

Night Owl Reviews — 4 stars
In aristocratic society, there were defined lines of behavior for ladies and gentlemen. What happens when those lines carry over into the bedroom? Shouldn’t a husband and wife just be a man and woman in the privacy of their marriage bed? This quick story is about how a titled gentleman is unable to seduce his own wife and allay her virginal fears, as he is afraid of being “improper.”
What results is a stilted and stunted relationship. Fortunately Lady Amberly is made of stern stuff and takes the situation into hand. What results are lessons of the carnal kind for her to relieve her stress and tension which are inhibiting her in bed with her husband. But her teacher isn’t her husband but a man procured by one of her spouse’s former mistresses. Convoluted? Perhaps, but it made for an entertaining read. While the ending was no surprise for me, it was a satisfyingly romantic ending to a read that could have been perceived as a little cold and clinical due to the nature of the lady’s anonymous lessons.
