This tale of erotic intrigue tells the story of those who by some act of folly become enslaved as an alternative form of punishment by the mysterious masked figure known only as The Martinet. In his Moorish castle in 17th Century Spain, these young men and women discover that class and privilege are insignificant. Whether prince or daughter of nobility, they have no more power than a lowly stable hand as they serve in every sexual capacity demanded of them by The Martinet's aristocratic guests.
For those slaves who arrive from a life of domestic service, The Castle will be a place in which they can for the first time know what it is to dominate another... whereas their enslaved betters will be given much cause to lament the scandalous actions that prompted their dispatch to The Martinet.
Whatever the case, there are many lessons to be learned at The Castle. Yet perhaps the most important will be learned by The Martinet, as he finds himself increasingly captivated by the beautiful daughter of an English earl, who has unwillingly become the most popular female slave at The Castle.

this was a great book and I should know as someone who owns hundreds of books of erotica with an emphisis on historical. I found this great it takes place in a castle in the 16th century where misdeeds land you rich or poor as a sex slave of the rich guests. but all slaves regardless of background are treated the same when they arrive. there is an emphisis on sex which what I really enjoy. this book is excellent I highly recommend this story to erotica fans everywhere.
Normally I don't go in for 'the historical,' but in this case I went full steam ahead. A bit of de Sade, with humor. There's a great tongue-in-cheek quality inherent in 'The Martinet' that allows you to step just a little bit outside of the outrageous sexual goings-on. Yet rather than detract, it adds to the fun! A most enjoyable novel of literary erotica. Highly recommended.
Well worth the wait. I've been reading and re-reading all the old M. S. Valentine titles and wondering when another one would be coming along. And at long last -- we have an all-new offering. Lots of atmosphere and lush language. A tasty erotic offering!
