Lessons in Indiscretion by Karen Erickson

Lessons in Indiscretion by Karen Erickson
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Widowed Lady Julia Renwick is still young enough to crave a man’s touch; but she’s too old to think that the Earl of Bedingfield could see her as anything more than a family friend. Garrett Walker is handsome, charming and only 26 years old—the perfect catch for any one of this year’s debutantes.

Garrett has no interest in the maidens vying for his attentions. He wants only Julia. With just two weeks left in the season, he makes a bold move by asking her to dance. When she counters with a shocking request of her own, Garrett eagerly agrees.

Soon, they are stealing away for passionate encounters at every society event they attend. Garrett introduces Julia to excitements she never knew existed, and her newfound confidence quickly attracts other eligible men. It’s not long before Garrett realizes he must find a way to keep the lady all to himself…

Lady Julia Renwick is lonely and she sets out to do something about it.  She has been eyeing Garrett Walker, the Earl of Bedingfield and decides it’s time to finally approach him with her request.  To her amazement, he is happy to help her out of her predicament.

Garrett Walker has known Julia since he was a young boy.  He enjoys her company and takes matters into his own hands when he asks her to dance.  Little did he know that it was going to lead to an all consuming affair with her that he might cost him his heart?

Julia may be a widow but she is still young enough to want/need someone to love her.  She doesn’t have any money or family to offer a dowry so she sets out to find a few moments of stolen passion.  She isn’t looking for love, just someone to help ease her loneliness.  She is a strong female character, aware of her place in society but she’s not willing to let society dictate her life.  I like that about her.

Garrett surprises everyone, including himself, when he asks Julia to dance with him.  He doesn’t mind giving them something to talk about.  He is sought after by all of the eligible females but they can’t hold a candle to Lady Julia.  He is a handsome, confident bachelor that is more than happy to oblige Julia’s request.  He didn’t anticipate losing his heart to her.

The carriage scene was very naughty and I loved every minute of it.  The characters are very hot together while still complementing each other.  I love how they stole secret moments at some of the biggest events of the season and no one figured out what was going on.  It’s amazing how they were able to keep their affair a secret until the end.

I loved the ending; it was probably my favorite part of the book.  When he asked her to be “his countess” I melted.  It shows that he not only have they been having blazing hot sex, they have taken the time to get to know each other too.  He realizes her hang-up is that she doesn’t think she’s good enough to be the Countess of Bedingfield.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and give Lessons in Indiscretion 4 Flaming Hearts.

  1. How old is Julia? If he’s 26, what does she consider old?

  2. I don’t remember if it ever said but i would guess late 20’s early 30’s. She makes the statement toward the beginning:

    “She was older than him – not by a scandalous amount, but enough to make her feel the difference.”
