Overview

At last, a new book from Alice Liddell, the mistress of dark erotic BDSM.


"Like many men before him, and many men since, Edward Tazewell, Earl of Chiltenham, discovered his future bride in church on a Sunday morning. Now, I am aware that it is hardly unusual for a gentleman to find a wife in a House of God, for there are few enough opportunities for the sexes to come together in polite society. But it does surprise in Lord Tazewell's case, for his tastes in women were unusual and specific. The sort of female who suited his dark desires was far more likely to be found in a gaming house."

Thus begins this absorbing and erotic tale of a powerful earl and his young bride, Miss Lucy Farquhar. In the Victorian era, a lady’s reputation could not afford even a whisper of scandal. Raised in India but sent back to England when both her parents suddenly pass away, Lucy's behavior, innocent fun but wild nonetheless, sets London on its ear. In short order, she is shunned as an outcast. But an orphaned pariah is just what the earl desires: a girl he can mold to his own desires with no interference from concerned friends or family. He strikes a deal with the great-uncle to whom Lucy was entrusted and -- after an extremely thorough and embarrassing examination to confirm her virginity -- Lucy is married off and whisked away to the earl's remote country estate.

There, Lucy's life is strikingly different from what she expected. Hardly a bride yet not a servant, her very strict husband trains her to humility and obedience through the frequent application of bare-bottom spankings, the strap, the birch, and even unusual anal discipline – all of which is described in loving detail. Lucy secretly longs to enter the marital bed but she’s too proud to admit it, and in any case, Lord Tazewell has his own ideas about that.

While this story includes the elements of a traditional romance story – a strong man, a feisty leading lady, a historical setting in Victorian times, and ultimately love – it also contains explicit sexual scenes, including anal play, and a great deal of non-consensual and severe spanking. There is also a hint of BDSM themes such as domination. If such material offends you, please do not buy this book. But if the image of a submissive virgin bride, obediently parting her own undergarments as she waits for her husband's birch rod thrills you, then don't wait for this one!

    Very hot Victorian

    I love Victorian romances, and although this is not exactly romantic, it is incredibly hot. I enjoyed the accuracy and historical relevance of the story. Alice Liddell knows a thing or two about the era. I will most likely be reading this one again and again!

    I have to say I felt sorry for Lucy throughout the story and was hoping for a happier ending! I hope there is a sequel to this to tie up the loose ends and maybe have a happy ending

    This is a hot book with great historical detail. This is a severe and non consensual book. The Earl is hard to take. You feel sorry for Lucy while wanting to know - deliciously - what will happen to her next.

    If you don't want to read a fairly severe, non consensual spanking / BDSM book then don't buy it. But if you want to read a real classy Victorian story, this one is highly recommended.

    Awful

    What an awful thing to write and read, not worth the money at all, even after reading the sleeping beauty trilogy by Ann Rice which was shocking to me, those books pale in comparison to this AWFUL short story, I have to give it at least 1* but it really deserves zero. I would have rather killed myself than live Lucys life @@

    Seems incomplete

    For a non-con spanking story, it's not bad. But very short at only 85 pages and it just stops. This is only the begining of a story. Where is the rest? The writing is decent, but only two stars because it's not worth the money being charged.

    I really liked the story. I just wished It was longer to see the complete ending. I would heve enjoyed reading how she got along with the "teacher" and how they finally resolved everything and got together. Could be a second book but longer than the first one.

    Correcting "very good"

    They only gave it one star when clearly they meant to give five. Just making up for their mistake...

    Lucy has brought trouble on herself from making poor choices but Edward's solution proves to be harsh and non-consequential. Although, the situations are somewhat squeamish yet it was a very hot story. The only thing I didn't like was that the story seemed to have a very abrupt end I'm curious what will happen next in their lives.

    Very good

    I love a good historical novel that involves spanking which this story certainly does. It is well written and seems to be accurate. This is not a love story though and does deal with noncon.
