When you accepted employment as a governess in Victorian England, you assumed your life would be set on an unchangeable path. After the death of her parents, Cassandra, a young woman with a talent for music, assumes the role of governess to two young children, whose own mother died a few years previously. However all is not as it seems, and after an initial quiet few months, she is spotted by Thorpe Pembroath, the owner of the Estate, father of the children and her employer.
A dinner invitation very quickly proves to have more to it than initially meets the eye, and Cassandra is suddenly swept without warning into a world unlike anything she has ever seen or known before.
But for all of Cassandra’s fears and insecurities at what is shown to her, it is ultimately Thorpe, a dark, brooding and intelligent man, who can without warning show a ruthless cruel streak, whose life is turned on its head and for whom the weekend will mean his world is forever changed.
Cassandra is a Carnal Set Novel – a series which follows the erotic pleasures, perversions, romance, delights and delectations of a group of extremely select men and women in Victorian England.

I am giving this a 5 star because i do think it deserves it, i read this after reading Lizzie the next book in the series (best to read this one first) there is another one as well which is the very start of the series but it is a short story and i am not really into those. but reading Cassandra gave me enough information to know what the Carnal Set is all about. Brilliant - I loved it Cassandra is strong and sensible and beautiful she is a heroine when you are not sure you need one then you suddenly realise you do! Very explicit bit of BDSM etc, but all well written. Doesn't read like a Victorian book, which makes it better I think Cant recommend high enough
