As soon as I read the description for this book I knew I had to read it. At first it reminded me of a gothic romance, the young heroine, Allette, is on her own in a strange place at the mercy of strangers. They embrace her initially, but then she does something to anger everyone and the story veers off into something sinister, yet compelling. Allette’s journey is punctuated by punishments that frighten and arouse her and change her from a pampered and spoiled woman-child to a woman. Her strongest relationships in the house are with her maid, Misty and Lord Marlton, who is a booming and overbearing man, but essentially her lover and protector.
I read this in one sitting, and I cursed anyone who interrupted me. I wasn’t crazy about BDSM before, but now I’m seeing it in a whole new light. This was well written with beautiful descriptions, interesting characters, and a fascinating story. I had to keep reading to find out what happens to Allette. The ending does not disappoint.
