This was my second Emily Tilton book, and I can honestly say, I have never been more riveted, titillated, aroused, and satiated in one single story.
I adore her writing style and her beautifully, descriptive scenes!
This story was so deliciously naughty, fun, erotic, with an engaging plot that kept me turning the pages well into the night.
The romantic scenes were some of the most titillating I have ever read. I have never read an old fashioned romance with “naughty” scenes, like the ones mentioned in this book. But this was so reminiscent of them, I found myself torn between naughty grins (I can’t believe I’m reading this!) and blushing like a school girl. I loved it!
When Amelia Lander, a school teacher, learns of the upcoming wedding of her sister, Esther, she rushes to San Francisco to fulfill the promise she made to her mother. To protect her younger sister.
Both sisters were taken apart from each other when very young. Amelia was sent to boarding school, and Esther was “adopted” by a wealthy couple.
(There was actually more to this story, but I don’t want to give away too much! Trust me, it’s good!)
Esther’s new husband, a powerful Captain from the military, Samuel Allen, accepts Amelia’s proof that she is Esther’s sister, and welcomes her to stay in their home. She agrees to stay with them, for propriety, and also to keep an eye on the well-being of her sister.
When Amelia disagrees with the discipline that Esther receives from her husband, she receives her own spanking from Samuel’s best friend and Sergeant Major, Michael Sullivan.
Though she does not appreciate the feeling of being treated like a child, she finds herself growing closer to Michael. She had vowed never to marry, after seeing the actions of real men, like her father who she still feels abandoned her and her mother. She doesn’t trust men, and vows to never marry.
She and Michael form a closer bond of friendship after a second bare bottom spanking, which leaves them both aroused and confused.
When she finds out about a plot that might include her father, she asks Michael to help. I liked the additional mystery and adventure. It added to an already wonderful story, filled with lots of emotional depth and romance.
I loved the naughtiness of several of the scenes between Esther and Samuel especially. They pushed my boundaries in a good way.
I was most drawn to Amelia and Michael’s relationship. I loved Amelia’s combined confliction of proper ladylike behavior mixed with wanton, sexually open woman. This was brilliantly written!
The combined scenes, between the stern Samuel, and his virginal aristocratic bride, mixed with Michael’s fun side, and open mindedness – mixed with the plot twist of the father’s doing, made for such a pleasurable read.
If you love spanking romance, with strong, dominant men this story is for you!
If you like to push the boundaries of eroticism, while remaining in the genre of erotic romance, this story is for you!
