Lord and Lady Huntington step off the train where they spent their honeymoon. As they say goodbye to their new friends, Lord and Lady Northbridge, Emmie attempts to assure Lucy that everyone will love her just as much as she does. Lucy is both excited and terrified as their carriage draws them ever closer to Hunter�s Ridge where she will finally meet Lucas� family. An accident on the road does nothing to soothe her shattered nerves until her husband promises that he will always be there, always protect her, and always love her. She has learned so much at his hands during their short marriage as he patiently teaches her what he expects both from his wife and from his special Little one.
The size and magnificence of his family estates overwhelm her but she finds comfort in the warm, loving welcome of his family. Molly, her nanny, has learned a great deal as well and assures Lucy that all will be fine as she begins her life at Hunter�s Ridge. Lucy might have believed her if it hadn�t been for one person. Lucinda, the governess, doesn�t hesitate to let Lucy know that she is unwanted. She makes it her duty to assure that Lucy�s time spent as Mistress of Hunter�s Ridge is short. Lucy�s fears overwhelm her when she believes her husband is oblivious to Lucinda�s actions. Will he remember his promise to protect her? Will he remember he swore that she would be safe and loved among the people who occupied Hunter�s Ridge? Can she trust him as he continues her lessons in both discipline and passion or will she find that the dual paths she vowed to take only lead to heartbreak.
This is the second book in the series, Hunter�s Ridge. It is a Victorian based age-play novel that contains discipline as well as explicit sexual scenes. If harsh discipline, age-play elements including anal play, or sexual acts offend you, please do not purchase this book. If you enjoy reading about the intense love and discoveries of possibilities of two people as they continue their journeys together, I hope my book brings you pleasure.

About the Author
I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband. I have always loved reading. Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone. I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered. It wasn�t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading. From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.
I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head. I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex. I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I�m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper. I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger. I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them. I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.

3 ½ -4 stars This is book 2. Although you can get the gist without book 1, you might find it helpful to have read the first. I am not a true fan of child brides and keeping a wife as a little one. That being said, the story was good and what I noticed was the definite development of characters and love between Lucas and Lucy. The story had lots of discipline of Lucy and anal play, with mild sexual scenes. Lucy was diapered, given binkies and milk in a bottle and put down for a nap often. The saving grace was that she was loved. Lucas really did love Lucy and did not want to cause her harm or embarrassment. The story had a few twists in it with the Governess. All in all at the end of the book I was smiling. If you are not a fan of age play, don’t read this book. It is a different life style. The book had a happy ending and was well written.
Audio version, Homecoming hunters ridge The narrator is wonderful making the story come alive. There are a few elements in this that I don't care for. I think it's the complete immersion in to the infant/little lifestyle. It's not just between the husbands and their wives but everyone treating them like a infants/toddlers/children. Too the extent of having nannies. Who also spanks, diapers, and does other embarrassing things to them. I had a whole rant here but decided to cut it. Though I couldn't help thinking during the non erotic parts, of the psychological ramifications of what's done to them. That said it did make me (blushes) wet. This audiobook was given to me for free at my request from the publisher or author and I provided this voluntary review.
Read this book now! Ms. Ryan's Hunter Ridge series is fabulous. Once can only hope it doesn't stop at just two. Ms. Ryan seems to leave the story open ended enough for more kinky installments. Lord and Lady Huntington arrive almost safely to their home. Lucy, Lady Hungting's first entrance is embarrassing as she is covered in mud and dressed like a child. For those in Lucas's employment, they find her darling, except for her new governess. When the phrase, "getting ideas above her station", it suits Lucinda perfectly. Lucinda is employed as a governess for Lucas's three sisters. Even if one of his sisters is married off, she's still forced to take classes with Lucinda. This means Lucy must also attend classes. For Lucy, this is horrid as she already received her certificates with high marks. This is just the beginning of the conflicts between Lucinda and Lucy. The humiliation in this story is mixed for me. I enjoyed Lucy's embarrassment at the hands of Lucas. When Lucinda does it, it irritates me and I see red. Here's why. This story is supposed to be dub-con submission with everyone on board treating Lucy as a little one. Lucas loves her and he's asking a lot of a grown woman to submit to him in this way. He needs to keep his end of the bargain. He needs to make sure Lucy isn't being disrespected in the manner Lucinda mistreats her. He doesn't protect Lucy which makes me think much less of Lucas. Now, this is purposely done to create conflict which is done quite well by Ms. Ryan. It's why I ultimately still enjoyed the story. From a plot prospective, Ms. Ryan does a great job. This is more than just a spank bank ageplay book. There are friendships building, relationship conflicts and personal growth on both Lucas's and Lucy's sides. What I would have liked was a different name for the governess. Lucinda and Lucy are way too close. Even Lucy and Lucas are a bit close and just odd. Still, it didn't detract from the overall story. The ageplay in here is more about being treated like a little girl. It's more about the psychological mindset and corporal punishment than the erotic debauchery. There is more caning and spankings than there are sexual depravities. I would prefer a bit more sexual deviance to make Lucy blush, moan and groan. For me to rate an ageplay book to be five stars, it will take more graphic sexual interludes as well as more guilty pleasurable humiliation experienced by the little one. I do enjoy how these books have female authorities in them. While the females do exert the power to punish, they don't involve any sexual contact or violation. Perhaps Ms. Ryan will up the sexual perversions in the next book in this series. This kink Victorian book is recommended to ageplay lovers who also like having a nanny. provided by Blushing Books
