THE AMOROUS EDUCATION OF CELIA SEATON

Book Three of the Burgundy Club series

Avon. ISBN: 978-0-06-202304-9.  August 2011

The story of Tarquin Compton, London's most feared dandy, and Celia Seaton, a governess whose life he ruined with one careless quip. Find out what happens when they meet by chance in the middle of nowhere ...

 

Being kidnapped teaches Miss Celia Seaton a few things about life

LESSON ONE

Never disrobe in front of a gentleman ... unless his request comes at gunpoint.

LESSON TWO

If, when lost on the moors, you encounter Tarquin Compton, the leader of London society who ruined your marriage prospects, deny any previous acquaintance.

LESSON THREE

If offered an opportunity to get back at Mr. Compton, the bigger the lie, the better. A faux engagement should do nicely.

LESSON FOUR

Not all knowledge is found between the covers of a book. But an improper book may further your education in ways you never guessed.

And while an erotic novel may be entertaining,
the real thing is even better

 "Wickedly sexy and just as witty. Miranda Neville is one to watch." Lisa Kleypas

REVIEWS

"The best description for this new novel from Miranda Neville is wonderfully adorable. The spirit, the joie-de-vivre, and the wit make the dialogue sparkle and the characters pop... Readers looking to be delighted won’t have to look any further than this novel." Kate Cuthbert for the New York Journal of Books.

"Neville scores big with this mix of hilarity, mystery, and passion." Publishers Weekly

"Ms Neville has me on the edge of my seat as I "flipped" the pages frantically on my iphone, and as I read with bated breath to see how Celia's and Tarquin's romance would be resolved. She has created unexpectedly endearing characters that stole my heart and a fun, refreshing story in a popular genre. You can bet I look forward to Ms Neville's future offerings." Ashia for The Romance Reviews. 5 stars, Top Pick.

"The Burgundy Club has become one of my favorite series because of Neville’s superb characterization and her ability to bring a freshness to a subgenre that often suffers from the affliction of sameoldness.  The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton—it is funny, tender, with the spice of difference—and did I say hot? I give it a bells-and-whistles recommendation." Just Janga. 5 stars

"The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton is a book as good as its title, a terrific addition to Miranda Neville’s Burgundy Club series." Sonomalass's Blog

"THE AMOROUS EDUCATION OF CELIA SEATON was as funny as it was romantic …. I enjoyed the writing style, the characters, and the story. An enchanting tale that had me laughing right along with the characters." Fresh Fiction

"A witty, interesting, trope-busting read … There is so much I admire and appreciate about the craftsmanship and a great deal that entertained me in a fresh, unexpected way. The way the different tropes play on surface v. substance and appearance v. reality, for example, and illuminate the different prisms through which people view themselves and each other. In some ways it is light, but not in the way of wallpaper historicals or straight romps; the light is emitted from the effervescent voice and prose." Janet for Dear Author (B+)
