Laura Kinsale's best romantic comedy, narrated in Nick Boulton's sexy, wicked voice....
Trevelyan d'Augustin and Lady Callista Talliafaire were secret sweethearts, until the day her father dismissed him with a whip across the face. Ten years and three jiltings later, shy Callie is resigned to a quiet village life as the late earl's spinster daughter. But now Trev has returned from his estates in France, upending everything, dragging her into adventures, stealing Hubert the prize-winning bull, and flinging Callie's heart into mayhem again.

Laura and Nick fans who enjoy a practical, witty heroine will love shy Lady Callista with her cattle and daydreams, and believe dashing Trev will be a lucky man if he can win her back...or perhaps just kidnap her instead!

Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
"Boulton's delivery and pacing not only capture the growing emotional and sometimes breathless physical attraction between the star-crossed lovers, but also convey their tantalizingly sharp and witty repartee." ( Audiofile Magazine)
"A rich and rewarding romance from the legendary Laura Kinsale!" (Mary Jo Putney, New York Times best-selling author of Loving a Lost Lord)
"Laura Kinsale creates magic. Her characters live, breathe, charm, and seduce, and her writing is as delicious and perfectly served as wine in a crystal glass." (Best-selling author, Lisa Kleypas)

The Dashing Frenchman & his love

Would you consider the audio edition of Lessons in French to be better than the print version?

Having never read it in print, I can't comment. However the narrator Nicholas Boulton was outstanding and made the book very enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lessons in French?

When Callie cunningly ensnared the true forger & then revealed in her modest way what she had done to Trev. Top girl !

Which character – as performed by Nicholas Boulton – was your favourite?

Callie. She was a great heroine & I loved her passion for her cattle.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Life & times of Hubert The Bull

Any additional comments?

I thought the story was great, lots of twists & turns along the way. I thought Trev was a wonderful character & really loved the humour in the book. I am a great Georgette Heyer fan, and had never come across Laura Kinsale, but in this book I think she is better than GH. I thought Nicholas Boulton's interpretation was outstanding. A very well written & thoroughly enjoyable book

Holy Cow!! What A Lovely Romance!! ;-)

I was a little surprised to find this book very different than other Laura Kinsale books. This story is not dark or has characters that are deeply distressed. Rather, it is a lighter more balanced story with characters that are charming, witty, fun, and true to life.

Trevelyan (Trev) is a dashing Frenchman who has loved Callista (Callie) since he was 16. He has a devil-may-care attitude that is endearing and very amusing. Callie is spinster Englishwoman who is practical, loyal, and loves animals. They have a unique “cat and mouse” relationship immersed with clever joking/bantering conversations that are very amusing.

Nicholas Boulton is a top-notch narrator!! (He is the perfect narrator for LK’s books).

This is truly a well written love adventure that is filled with friendship, loyalty, loss, laughter, mischief, fun, love, and even a cow! It's worth a credit.

Nicholas Boulton is a God!

Since I can only read via Audiobook the narrator is just as important as the author.
The Laura Kinsale & Nicholas Boulton combination is one of my 2 favorite. I own and have read every book she's released to audio between 3 and 4 times each. I absolutely despise angsty reads and for the most part Laura hits the nail on the head. That said this one is a little angsty/wishy-washy but still amazing.
