After her kidnapper leaves, she is able to escape her small room, clad only in her shift, and stumbles over a man who is unconscious Oh, but not just any man.no, it is the man that disgraced her in front of all of society with one snide remark When Tarquin Compton awakens and he has no knowledge of what happened, Celia decides to tell him a few faux lies Even as Celia is telling Terrance Fish these embellishments, he knows something is not quite right but what he does know is that he and Celia need to get away from her kidnapper This begins my favorite part of the book The two of them are walking through the countryside surviving on little to nothing for food and are stripped to their raw emotions This is quite a departure for Tarquin who is the leader among Londons society for appearances and it does not take long for Celia to fall in love with him in this setting And as Celia has told Tarquin that they are engaged, he can not help but appreciate and admire this feisty woman They encounter a few humorous bumps in the road and eventually share a passionate moment together Of course, Tarquin does this under the assumption they are engaged to be married but not long after, Tarquins memories return and he is not happy when they do Celia knew it was a mistake to lie to Tarquin, but she was so hurt by his actions from the past she thought them justified She also knew it was a mistake to make love to him but does not believe they must marry, especially as it was her who deceived him The two finally stumble onto some land and Tarquin realizes it his his land and after cleaning up the two head to his friend, Sebastians house as it is not proper for a woman alone to stay at Tarquins home This part of the book was also a delight After reading The Dangerous Viscount it was wonderful to return and see the birth of Sebastian and Dianas baby.and all the agitation that plagued Sebastian and his father in law was truly funny During this time Celia and Tarquin continue to argue as to whether they should marry or not Tarquin feels it is his duty to protect her as Celia is alone and has no family but Celia does not want to settle and always be the follower of this well admired man and pitied upon from society.As the story progresses, we slowly get small tidbits as to Celias scandalous upbringing and how that might factor into her kidnapping I had my own ideas as to why it happened and I was happy that I wasn t entirely correct There was a nice little curve ball that I was not expecting and I am hoping that the villain gets a story of their own I also liked that the back cover really sums up this book very well That little book that was left when Tarquin was knocked out and Celia reads adds plenty of heat and laughter What I really enjoyed about this book is that these two fell in love during their first ordeal together when they were just stripped to the bare essentials Naturally it took quite a bit for them to finally realize this but it was really worth it in the end I got a bit worried that the ending was going to have a Big Misunderstanding but once again, Miranda Neville threw a curve ball and wrote an ending that I absolutely loved and had me smiling the whole time I was reading it Wonderful story with excellent leading characters and great supporting cast I can not wait for4 1 2 starsI received this ebook from the

all look to him to lead in society So when he forgot Celia s name for the sixth time they were introduced, and referred to her head as a vegetable, no one in good society would have her Tarquin loves London, and loathes the country, but no one in the summer stays in London, so he must leave as well Restless at his country estate, he decides to visit a neighboring estate who is threating a lawsuit against him But on the way he gets lost, and by chance comes across the same secluded cottage Celia is being held hostage in Before he has a chance to even know she is there, he gets hit over the head by the kidnapper, robbed of his shirt and other possessions and left unconscious on the ground.When he awakes, he sees a woman standing over him, but has no memory of who she is, or who he is He has no memories at all Celia feels a tiny bit giddy at this The man she loathes, doesn t know his identity.That this should happen to Mr High and Mighty Compton, that the man had no idea he was an abiter of fashion, the darling of the ton, the terror of the unmarried maidens was too bizarre About to inform him of both their names she caught herself and stopped to give some thought to her predicament.It was too perfect.For all the times he snubbed her at balls, she wants to get back at him So she tells him his name is Terrence Fish, that he is a Vicar and that they are engaged to be married Terrence Torquin doesn t feel this is right, but he has no memory, only this woman who is telling him his life story so he goes with it The next three days they spend as Terrence and Celia, engaged and Celia realizes under Torquin s snobbish ton fa ade, is a very nice, and gentlemanly man She starts to fall for him of course until all his memories come rushing back.The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton is an adorable book Especially the first half I laughed out loudthan I have in a very long time Celia is quite the character and when she decides to tell Tarquin his name is Terrence Fish, her betrothed, there are a few scenes that I still laugh about as I think back to them Those three days they have together as Terrence and Celia bring them very close They are so removed from society tromping through the moors, Celia in her shift and blanket she has wrapped around herself as a skirt, and Torquin in a very ill fitted shirt something the real Torquin would never be caught dead in.Of course, the fun must come to an end when Torquin s memories come flooding back He is shall we say, a bit upset that she lied to him, and and not only that but let things progress romanticallythan they should have since they are not actually engaged But through it all, he is a gentleman, and I really liked that after his memories, due to circumstances, Celia is kind of forced to stay in his company So while she fell in love with Terrence she now has the chance to fall in love with Torquin And Torquin now has the chance to realize the ton doesn t have to rule his life.Torquin also collects poetry and erotic books He happens to have an erotic book with him when he is hit over the head, which Celia discovers and keeps for herself So through the book, we get tidbits from this book, as Celia discovers some naughty things you can do with a man Celia is not shy or afraid of sex, although she is a virgin She makes a very fun match for Tarquin when it comes to the romance Kiss me, he growled and her pupils expanded, darkening her eyes Her mouth swooped in, then stopped Pulled back Make me, she whispered.And their romance is so sweet Definitely a bumpy road to finally get together, but very worth it Besides the amnesia and the following conflict once Torquin s memories come back, the real reason she is kidnapped is that someone is hunting for a ruby, and there is rumor Celia had it The second half of the book focuseson this, which ended up being a littleon the silly side, but I conforms with the lighter tone of this book While the first half of the book is very funny, the second half becomesserious, but works well as the two of them fall in love.This is my first Miranda Neville book and I need to go back and read the previous two in the series to meet the other characters Very witty and very romantic, I definitely want.Rating B An utterly delightful regency romp that turns several romance tropes the dandy hero, amnesia, road romance on their ears Witty, sexy and at times poignant, this third installment in the Burgundy Club series makes me wish I had the next one right now Wonderful read.
