Product Description

Lessons in seduction...

When Rosalind Howard takes a job as private librarian for the charming and distinguished Julian Hadey, she soon finds that cataloguing his collection of erotica will be the least of her duties.

Julian requires a tutor for his wife’s cousin. Though young and beautiful, David is extremely sheltered and uninitiated in the arts of erotic love. Can Rosalind teach him all there is to know about pleasure?

A kinky erotic romance from Portia Da Costa, the Sunday Times bestselling author of In Too Deep and the Accidental series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of contemporary erotica by women for women .... 4 September 2003
By Rudolf Spoerer - Published on
I have devoured all of Portia Da Costa's books available at Amazon and this one was always impossible to find until recently when Black Lace released a 2003 print run ....
The Tutor is the story of a young Brit girl, Rosie, start a new life as a live-in librarian with a wealthy couple with the express task of cataloging an extensive private collection, and, provide some special tutoring to the couple's supposedly shy young nephew....
What makes this book so wonderfull and the author so masterfull is that she is able to write an erotic modern tale using nothing more than 'normal' sex and eroticism.... yup, the players in this book do not have to get beaten, whipped, cut up, degraded worse than my dog, peed on etc etc etc
Portia da Costa's gentle writing allows the reader to vicariosly enter the mind's eye of the heroine and enjoy those most wonderfull sexual escapades of total sumbission to pleasures of the flesh. The skill of the author is that she does not have to enter the world of 'kink' to tell her simple but very pleasing story ......

4.0 out of 5 stars A sensual fantasy with likable characters 4 April 1998
By Barks Book Nonsense - Published on
Set in contemporary times this is an unlikely fantasy about a reclusive millionaire who hires a young woman to catalog his library of books and his prized possession of erotic literature. Anna? Needing to get a fresh start after recently suffering a bad breakup with her insensitive boyfriend accepts the job even though she senses that something is not on the level after an odd interview with her handsome employer. She soon discovers that her real purpose for being in his house is to tutor his virginal nephew in the arts of love-making. Being an open-minded woman she eagerly accepts her new position and surrenders to her passion and learns several interesting things herself.
I enjoyed this book very much and found the two main characters to be extremely likable people. Admittedly, the plot was very thin but who the heck cares when the sex scenes are this exciting! Some were tender and some were very kinky. There were several f/m scenes along with several m/m, some mild S&M, f/f and 3-way sex so if those things offend you be warned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insatiable look into the world of uninhibited delights! 31 January 2004
By CoffeeGurl - Published on
This novel's insatiable descriptions and beautiful language enthralled me from beginning to end. The Tutor is the delicious tale of a young woman's sexual odyssey into the unconventional world of uninhibited sensualists. At first, Rosie Howard is under the impression that she's started a new job as the private librarian for a rich couple. But no sooner does she settle in than she discovers her true task: she is to educate Julian and Celeste's nineteen-year-old cousin on the act of erotica. The bizarre surroundings disturb Rosie at first, but the unsettling and erotic existence is difficult to resist...
I love the subtle and beautiful language Portia Da Costa uses. I absorbed the delectable descriptions. Contemporary erotica is scarcely this insatiable. Also, I loved the subject of voyeurism throughout the novel. This is another winner from Black Lace. I shall look forward to reading more books from this talented author.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully erotic read 11 December 2001
By Evan Miller - Published on
Rosie has a bit of a self-esteem problem. She thinks she's fat and not at all attractive. Yet she finally managed to dump her jerk of a boyfriend who wasn't helping matters. She then responds to a want ad for a job to catalog a private library of books. The man who hires her has plans for her though... to teach his very shy nephew the ways of sex. Rosie is suddenly thrown into the midst of a very decadent family where she's fair game to the nephew, the man and his wife... even the sexy little masseuse. Rosie also finds her self-esteem in this world, where she's considered beautiful and voluptuous... and she comes to enjoy this lifestyle as well.
I tore this book when I read it. It reads fast and it's wonderful. It's very easy to identify with the main character... I mean who hasn't had a bout of poor self-esteem? Yet she finds acceptance where she is. The erotic bits deliver and will leave you breathless.
