5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous love story! July 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a huge fan of Anthea's longer works, so it was a no-brainer to pick up The Piano Tutor. The length may be shorter, but the quality is just as stellar as always. Anthea has a way with words - she's a very lyrical writer and infuses as much passion as a full-length romance into these short pages with ease. Love, love, love! I'm looking forward to her next venture.

I just finished The Piano Tutor. A great read, Anthea Lawson does it all in this short story. Plot, conflict, passion, and great characters.

I loved this story. It wasa wonderful, quick read. I loved the characterization, the story itself, the tie to music, and, most of all, the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Singing praises for The Piano Tutor November 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Piano Tutor was a delightful quick read. It was nice watching Diana Waverly grow as a person and come out of her shell. Nicholas Jameson and Lucy Pembroke are colorful characters who enrich the story. Anthea deftly crafted the historical English setting and wove musical themes throughout the narrative with a suprise twist at the end. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance like romance was meant to be May 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a romance written like a romance was meant to be written. The only disappointment I had was that it ended too soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very quick read April 14, 2014
By amtmcm
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is very short - about twenty pages and ends at 59% in the Kindle edition. I read this first in The Mammoth Book of Regency Romance and remember enjoying it. It seemed to be over too quickly on the Kindle because I didn't realize it was ending. There is a little twist at the end which is fun. This story may be a good choice if you're looking for a fast diversion, or a quick read before bedtime.

I found this book a little more erotic than perhaps I am used to reading. Overall I thought it wasn't too bad.
