Married once to a Baron who needed a young bride to bear him an heir, Cordelia Astley found herself in an untenable situation after his death until Philip Stanley, the Marquess of Dunbury, asked her to be his bride. She knows he didn't marry her for love, but he was her white knight and, once they're married, she finds herself falling in love with him. It would be a fairy tale ending if it wasn't for her stepdaughter Gabrielle.
Having observed his cousins Hugh and Eleanor find happiness in their respective marriages, Philip doesn't see why his marriage should be any different. Especially since he managed to find a giving, submissive, delightful woman that drew him like no woman had ever done before. Everything would be perfect, except that she allows her stepdaughter to denigrate her and manipulate her. His method of correction for both Cordelia and Gabrielle isn't what either lady expected, but Cordelia finds confidence in his support and care of her... if only she would put him first instead of Gabrielle, Philip's life would be everything he'd hoped.
A sexy spanking tale of desire, passion and love, Philip's Rules is the first of a new series spin-off of the Domestic Discipline Quartet (you do not need to read the quartet to enjoy this book).
Philip's Rules is an 80,000 word standalone novel set in Victorian times with a HEA and contains domestic discipline, spanking, birching, paddling, anal play and sex, the exciting danger of illicit situations, and some seriously delicious alpha men.

Although historical novels are not normally a genre I read/listen too, I went in with an open mind. Both the author Golden Angel and narrator Brian Briar were knew to me. Cordelia is a sweet, submissive woman, lost and alone after the death of her husband. When Phillip asks her to marry him, she truly has no idea what she is getting into and the life that she would lead. I liked Phillips and could certainly see him swooping in to save Cordelia. Although Cordelia frustrated me at times and I was annoyed by the behaviour of Gabrielle, a spoilt brat who really needed to be taken in hand. This was a fairly spicy book to listen to and there were certainly some extremely hot scenes. There are some elements of BDSM and Phillip was definitively an alpha male. The secondary character of Felix was great and I am more than intrigued by him. All in all, a well narrated book that was certainly steamy.
Nice read, hot, but no real character depth or mystery if that's what you're looking for. Will read the next one tho to see how Gabrielle turns out
Love these book. Cannot wait for the next in the serie. Keep up the good work
