For Gabriela, the dark half of the year is the more fulfilling
Gabriela has spent one month with István, her heart’s love, when winter arrives, her life at the Castle a few miles but a world away from her modest upbringing. Yet her bliss is shattered when István is called away, promising Gabriela to return for their planned Midwinter wedding. Not even her blossoming erotic powers can persuade him to stay.
Unable to reveal the real reason for his journey, István has arranged for close friends to support Gabriela in his absence. She is already well acquainted with Alexandrine and Georg. The two undertook Gabriela’s first schooling in amorous pleasures when she arrived to the Castle, to assure themselves she would suit István’s every requirement as his wife.
Despite pining for István, Gabriela is happy for the pair to continue their carnal education of her. She learns to test her own limits as her companions make her the erotic centre of their attentions in a series of fulfilling lessons. New arrivals join them, including the charismatic and flirtatious Captain James Francis, whom Gabriela likes just a little too much…
The weeks settle into a thrilling pattern of voluptuous days and nights of carnal pleasures. But as time passes with not a word from István, Gabriela grows unsettled. Not only do shadows of doubt about his love for her gather, the mystery of a certain locked room begins to create unease in her mind.

Continuing the sexy, saucy, spanky and, not least, romantic adventures of Gabriela
Gabriela’s marriage to her heart’s beloved István has brought its challenges, yet theirs is an overwhelmingly exciting, amorous, and deliciously sensual union. She becomes convinced that she is the talisman for their continuing happiness and for István’s good health. Therefore, it comes as a shock when her husband falls ill and implores Gabriela to continue their planned travels to Paris alone.
Whilst she misses István desperately, given Gabriela’s appetites, it is not long before she stumbles across all manner of carnal distractions. In France, a series of teachers awaits her, from a budding artist of the French Impressionism School, to a famous English writer, to a most chivalrous couturier’s assistant in a fashion atelier—not forgetting the considerate attentions of her best friend and hostess Alexandrine. All are more than happy to initiate her into new pleasures, ensuring Gabriela is engaged in a variety of stimulating encounters, including an introduction to corporal punishment and bondage, and with no shortage of talented partners.
Along the way, she encounters her former suitor Captain James Francis, a man who retains the power to unsettle her, and makes the acquaintance of the bohemian dancer Albertine. Though as Gabriela discovers, what appears to be one more night of errant pleasure soon leads to dangerous risk-taking. So dangerous, that Gabriela’s return home, her reunion with István, and even her life, are imperilled.
