Ana Adored: Mistress of the Castle, A Masters of the Castle Novel by Anastasia Vitsky, Maren Smith

Shy Ana has two secret passions: she loves other women and she has always harbored an intense fascination with all things "spanking." Unfortunately, her current girlfriend, Peyton, has no interest in indulging what she refers to as "sick and deviant" fantasies.

But when their latest argument becomes one black eye too many, Ana's had enough. Finally finding the necessary courage and strength of will, she orders Peyton out of her house and out of her life. Break-ups with abusers are never easy or painless, and in the emotionally chaotic aftermath of hers, Ana turns to the only friend she has - a woman she met online more than a year before on, of all things, a plant forum.

Miranda is everything Peyton is not. She listens. She understands. She accepts. And when she unexpectedly offers Ana a plane ticket to fly out to Ohio and meet with her, face-to-face for the very first time, Ana doesn't hesitate for long. She packs a bag and goes on vacation; ten days, prepaid, at the Castle, the most infamous BDSM resort in the world.

On the surface, everything seems so perfect and magical. But Ana isn't at the Castle long before she realizes she isn't the only woman with secrets. Miranda Hardwick, the Castle's most feared and respected Mistress, has a few secrets of her own.

As the lines between fantasy and reality and friends and lovers begin to blur, both women quickly realize that if their blossoming relationship is to survive, they're going to have to put their secrets aside - Miranda, with her strange "emergencies" that keep calling her away, and Ana, with Peyton, who just won't accept a life without Ana in it.

About the Author

Anastasia Vitsky is a naughty girl with a wicked sense of humor. She writes F/F spanking stories because she loves a story with a good female disciplinarian. She strives to write stories that speak to our everyday lives now versus the fantasies no one can hope to achieve.

About Maren Smith: Hi, I'm Maren. I'm 30, married to a wonderful, dominant man, and have five four–legged children: two dogs and three cats. I love strong, authoritative men–men who are both ready and willing to leave the lady of their choosing red–bottomed and weeping and for her own good. Writing has given me the wonderful freedom to explore my spanking side without feeling 'weird.' Even better, with the invention of the Internet, I can write what I love and know it will be appreciated by people with the same interests.”

FourandHalfStars Content warning: This story has a scene of domestic violence between one of the main characters and the woman she's with at the beginning of the book. Some readers may need to be aware of that ahead of time. This novel was slower-paced than most of Ms. Vitsky's work. I was drawn into it immediately, but the rhythm of the story was somewhat inconsistent. That may be due in part to the length. That said, it was a good read that gave me a lot to think about. As is usually the case with Ms. Vitsky (and why I like her writing so much), there's an ongoing theme of sin/redemption and remorse/forgiveness. I liked the way Peyton's version was juxtaposed with Miranda's and the careful analysis of how both women affected Ana at a deep level. I loved the wild, wonderful cast of supporting characters. They were every bit as important as the two main leads. The various goings-on in the Castle and among the staff had me hanging on every word just to see what would happen next. I found myself wishing they were real people I could meet. This story has my all-time favorite kind of sensuality: steamy, romantic, and beautiful all without long, graphic descriptions of body parts and sex acts. There was just enough detail to please me without making me feel as though it were too much, and it fit well within the context. The few more characteristically "dirty" words used were another kind of juxtaposition--Ana's innocence vs. Miranda's ease--and it worked perfectly. Most of all, my favorite part was the open, honest way Ana reflected on her journey toward accepting the parts of herself she'd kept hidden. I loved the message that no one is wrong or broken or should ever feel ashamed for their needs and desires. This is a good curl-up-with-a-blanket-and-tea kind of book. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. 4.5 stars Amy ThreeStar Well, I can honestly say that this is not what I expected. I expected to have one floundering woman who was fantasizing about someone dominating her and spanking her. What the story delivered was two floundering women - one who was trying to come to terms with her desires and the other who was a very bad dominant. This was a frustrating book at best. While the story line was easy to track, there were so many "misunderstandings" that it became redundant and somewhat boring. The most exciting parts were when Peyton came back in to the picture and despite my hatred for her, she breathed life back in to the story. Overall, this story lacked heat, was not a good showing of what a true fantasy "Disneyland" would be like and also showed, that despite her reputation for being a great Domme, how terrible she really was at earning the trust that Ana had put in her. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. AvidReader

I loved this story.  First of all, I love the MotC series.  I wish the authors would write faster.  Second, I love that they are writing F/f into this series.  We know that there are Mistresses at the Castle, so it is was great to read about a Mistress and her sub.  Also, this explains a lot about Don.  I was quite confused when they started doing the auctions in Don’s memory in the Valentine’s Day book.  So, this helped a lot.  I also like the way the author dealt with the physical abuse with her former partner.  But, I really loved the love between Miranda and Ana.  They were friends before the Castle and there was a relationship there.  When Ana came to stay, there was miscommunication on both their parts, but they did finally start talking again and worked things out.  I would like a sequel to this story, please Ms. Vitsky!  I give this 5 stars.

Miranda has always come off as so in control and when she invites Ana it seems that this will firmly continue.  But with all that is going on in the background it seems to be upsetting the flow.  Most important message that comes through this story is communication and honesty is a two way street.  Being in charge doesn't mean having to to do all the giving.  Domme's need help and comfort, too.

MISTRESS MIRANDA'S LOVELY This is a very powerful and emotional story of the Master of the Castle series. Mistress Miranda is a well respected Domme.  She also has a gifted green thumb and host a web site Heaven in Horticulture where she has been conversing with Ana, who seems to kill all her plants. Their online private chats have taken on a playful D/s tone. Ana is involved with live-in girlfriend, Peyton, but Peyton has proven violence and when it happens again, Ana kicks her out. Miranda is encouraged by Master Dom and dear friend Don to invite Ana to the Castle, a BDSM fantasy resort. This story unfolds with Ana and Miranda's relationship as it blooms and grows. But when secrets come between them it almost destroys their new relationship.  We also learn more about the founding Master Don during his end of life and funeral, and the love of his adopted family, the staff from the Castle. This story has violence from one live-in partner to another.  It is NEVER acceptable for someone to hit or slap a partner in the face and to leave bruises and cuts. The Castle is all about a safe, sane and consensual play space where guest can act out and live their fantasies. When a guest oversteps their bounds, it is banishment for life.

Another fun romp through the Castle. This book is wonderful. As we have come to expect from Ms. Vitsky it is a story of depth and integrity. Ana is in a relationship that is hurtful and potentially dangerous. Her Internet chat connection with Miranda is the highlight of her day. When her relationship crosses the line with one to many bruises Miranda offers her a vacation at the Castle. Will the friendship that developed online be the same or different? As the story develops the reader is drawn deeper and deeper into it. I did not want to put this story down. The authors handle the tough topic of physical abuse tastefully. The characters are well developed and are consistent throughout the story. The castle world was woven seamlessly into the story. It was great getting to see more of the other characters while see another side of Mistress Miranda.

Set in the famous BDSM playground of Maren Smith’s Castle series, in this book we discover that the strict Head Mistress, Miranda, has some very soft spots. After corresponding over the internet in a forum for plant lovers, she has befriended Ana, a young school teacher who is struggling to accept that fact that there are far more serious issues to deal with other than the plants she can’t seem to keep alive. When her relationship with her partner, Peyton, explodes yes again, it is Miranda’s calm influence that allows Ana to be strong enough to stop fantasizing about the life she seeks and to take that first step to claiming it. If you are a fan of Maren’s Castle series, and frankly, who wouldn’t be, then this one will make you cry as well as it deals with Don, one of the founding partners of the Castle, and his illness. Despite the sadness, it will also make you realize that when love is right, when it is strong, when there is someone to help you deal with the pain, love and life are beautiful.

I absolutely love the Masters of the Castle series and I have from the beginning. This is a fantastic addition to the series, written by two very talented authors who happen to be two of my favorite authors! We learn more about Miranda Hardwick and discover that she has a softer side. Ana, who comes to the castle as Miranda's guest, has some of her own issues to deal with but at the same time she, unknowingly, is helping Miranda who is struggling with losing a very dear friend. The emotional journey these two women take is tremendous, I laughed and I cried and I cheered and it was wonderful! This is a book I most definitely will read again. Very well done ladies and I can't wait for the next in the MOC series!
