His Scandalous Lessons


This first book in the Private Arrangements series can be read as a standalone.
Love and scandal make for a deadly combination . . .

He is London’s most notorious rogue

Richard Grey is renowned for his escapades in the bedchamber. But he’s hidden the truth for years: that wicked reputation is a public front to hide his political machinations. So when the prime minister’s daughter arrives on Richard’s doorstep with a tempting proposition, he seizes the opportunity to gather information against her father, his corrupt political rival.

She is determined to escape her past

Anne Sheffield’s life is dictated at the whims of her domineering father. Considered an asset for her remarkable memory, Anne is privy to intelligence passed between the prime minister and his allies—and he’s determined to keep her close. Desperate to escape, she presents Richard with a trade: help her find, seduce, and secure a husband of her choosing in exchange for political secrets.

As Anne learns Richard’s scandalous ways, she finds herself on the verge of losing her heart. And as it turns out, sharing secrets can lead to dangerous consequences . . .


The Review

Hello Book friends!

Today I’m reviewing His Scandalous Lessons by Katrina Kendrick. In this historical romance, with a fresh new cover, we follow a prominent politicians daughter Anne Sheffield, who is determined to find a husband on her own terms before she is forced to marry the man her father has chosen for her. Enter Richard Grey, the second son of an Earl, who bargains with his enemies daughter, only to find that his original deal turns into something he never expected.


Have you ever finished the first book in a series and immediately needed to read the next?

That’s me, book friends, with Kendrick’s series, Private Arrangements! Immediately after reading His Scandalous Lessons, I was excited to read the next novel, Tempting the Scoundrel, that focuses on Grey’s youngest sister (and book friends that one is my absolute favorite), but let’s get back to His Scandalous Lessons.

A Few More Thoughts

His Scandalous Lessons is part of a historical romance series that I am hands-down ready to binge read. And with this opening novel, romance readers be prepared to be rooting for a group of women ready to change their world and challenge the men who would see them imprisoned in a gilded cage.

For this one I loved the slow-burn between Anne and Richard. Where, they unhurriedly unwrap each others defenses with heated looks, stolen kisses, and delicious banter. Midway they find their own desires and wants reflected back at each other and friends, the romance only burns brighter after that revelation.

Kendrick’s novel can be read in one sitting, knowing this may be your next obsession.

Just a side note, please check the trigger warnings before reading this one.

Happy Reading ~ Cece
