☆☆➹⁀☆5 stars☆➹⁀☆☆


The Lesson is Milana Raziel’s debut into publishing. This novella is fan-fiction of C.D. Reiss’ Submission Series; it is being published as part of Reiss’ Drazen World.

Lena Corradi is an art retrieval specialist. She uses her knowledge of art and her wicked negotiation and bargaining skills to return precious works of art to their rightful owners. She’s smart, sophisticated, and sensual. At Penn, the baseball team knew her as Missy. Her intelligence and lack of funds led her to her a tutoring job with the baseball team. Whether they needed her assistance or not, all the players knew and respected Lena.

When the team’s star, Jonathan Drazen, walks into a dive bar that Missy frequents, the cold winter night gets a little warmer. Jon is helping with the NCAA recruiting weekend, and he has been assigned to Dashiel Beaumont Warren who has little interest in the cold winters at Penn. The three make the most of the evening with pithy banter and dirty dancing that leads to a wickedly hot late night. In fact, when Lena sees a magazine article about Jon, memories of that night flood her thoughts.

The Lesson is a particularly good read. The writing style is smooth and evocative. The use of reminiscing to tell the main character’s Drazen-linked story is quite creative. I enjoyed the Ms. Raziel’s storytelling skills; her tale has a good, natural flow. I look forward to future endeavors by this new author!



About the author:  Milana Raziel is the pen name of an intelligent woman of intrigue and mystery who loves a well written book and an excellent glass of wine.
