By Jo Smutdickted

Mara has come home to her beloved Aubrey Plantation but things are much different now than when she left. For one thing the war is over and slavery has been abolished – or has it? There are still many people who do not support Lincoln”s views and Mara and her family find themselves trying to navigate complicated waters. Enter Colin, a man who clearly has a mysterious past – a past her parents are not divulging. Mara, at once a young lady on the cusp of becoming a woman and a childish spoiled girl, has a lens which lets her believe she is at the heart of it all. Through machinations of entirely her own doing she and Colin end up married – but Colin doesn”t want a spoiled little girl – he wants a woman who can not only meet his needs but that he can be proud of. Mara must figure out if growing up, and making sacrifices, makes Colin worth it.

Initially I quite hated ┬áMara – finding her such an insipid, manipulative, and spoiled child as to put me off her considerably. I thought Colin, though we really don”t get much back story until far into the story, deserved so much better than her. However I did recognize at about 50% in that she was changing – and that she had to either grow up or the story wasn”t going to go anywhere. I won”t say she did a 180 but she did become more of who she could be. The evolution was well done and it made sense – so the character become more relatable as the book went on.

In terms of historical accuracy I have no idea really – I don”t read many historicals. There is definitely a D/s theme running through this but my thoughts are most wives of that time period were probably expected to be more submissive. I”m not sure the common thought was that this was not allowed. At least not in public. As for sex it is hot and there is some kink thrown in that fits the story. I did find the scenes at the end with all the common sex words slightly awkward because I had a hard time gelling that with the idea of a southern plantation. I know some of the older words were in use – it was more where it was being used here and the characters.

I really enjoyed the story – and it did flow well. There was quite a bit of historical tie in with the KKK and abolition. It did frame things in a non usual way – and I so appreciated that. In terms of kink there is really the D/s thread running through and some rope bondage. I am looking forward to reading more from this new to me author!
