Felicity Brandon does an amazing job of slowly exploring Lydia’s feelings and emotions and struggles she feels on her journey to become an submissive. She is overwhelmed at times and the constrictions of the time make this even harder. There is a wonderful connection between Lydia and Lord Markham, there is an instant attraction and it deepens during the book. It has wonderful written sensual scenes, but for me the emotional journey makes this book special.
Lady Lydia is sent to Markham hall after her father dies. Her guardian is Lord thomas Markham a man who likes to run his household with a firm hand..However once lydia is settled in the household she decided to explore, but she sees something she isnt meant to see, and lying about it does her no good, cause once thomas Markham finds out guess what she gets.The relation ship between Lord Markham and lydia is beautiful.Follow this story and you will be enchanted with it as well...
I recieved a advanced copy of this in return for an honest review.
Lydia was, to me, a very well-written character and how I envisioned a woman of that era would act. She has a constant internal battle over how scandalized she should be with Lord Markham's means of behavioral corrections, yet she can't seem to get enough of it and enjoys it. Lord Markham was an alpha male with a caring side and delivered domestic discipline when necessary. Those scenes, though! Whoa, this is one H.O.T. book!!! Ms. Brandon has become one of my new favorite authors of domestic discipline books.
I really enjoyed this book, but I removed a star because Lord Markham had a short-coming that bothered me in that he was, at times, contradictory. The first occurrence of this is when Lord Markham attempts anal play. Lydia refuses, not once, but a couple times, and Lord Markham threatens to tie her up and do it anyway. Shortly thereafter, in another scene, Thomas won't kiss Lydia without her consent. That one had me scratching my head. The second instance is when Thomas tells Lydia that he'll punish her in front of company, but after learning that another character got information about their private life out of Lydia, he tells her that what transpires between them is a private affair. Given that said other character is one that Thomas was all-too willing to punish Lydia in front of, I found this rather odd.
Overall, this book is one that I would definitely recommend and though I received an ARC, I purchased it, too. Be warned, however, that the ending was somewhat of a cliffhanger, but I don't mind, because I'll be looking for the next one in the series!
I like that Markham is bold and goes for what he wants. He has to settle and break away to get the one thing that he really cares about. Lydia is innocent but very sassy and curious. She learns to know herself and her feelings. This couple is made for each other and they have to struggle with family and friends to get their happily ever after. Can they make it? You have to read the book.
I can only recommend this amazing read. I love books about this period and this one did not disappoint me. It is true to the time, people and places.
I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book.
