After she is caught in the midst of a scandalous indiscretion, 18-year-old Ginevra Audley is soundly birched in front of her finishing school classmates and then brought to Dr. Reginald Brown for further correction. She is made to strip completely and display herself shamefully before the stern doctor, and when she is disobedient during the intimate, humiliating examination, Ginevra is punished in the most embarrassing of ways. Once Dr. Brown is finished with her, Ginevra is handed over to a handsome young gentleman.

Bondage & Breakfast was a safe place for couples to explore BDSM - until an arsonist almost destroyed it. While the inn is closed for repairs, owner Gabe McConnell allows injured firefighter Olivia Watterson to stay and recover as a favor to a mutual friend. His attraction to her is unexpected and intense - but there's no way she's strong enough for the type of play he demands from a sub. When she arrives at the inn, Liv is shocked - and intrigued. Her unanticipated obsession with the sexy, skilled Dom makes her all the more impatient with her slow recuperation.

When it comes to sex, Bella Massey wants a man who'll get down on his knees and beg. And although she's got the hots for firefighter Marcus Aiello, she can't believe an alpha male like him could have a submissive bone in his body. Marcus isn't looking for a relationship, but Bella is not like any woman he's ever met. When he discovers what the sexy librarian is really looking for in a man, he's even more intrigued. But giving up control is difficult for Marcus - no matter how much he desires it.

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

If you like a tale about people and their lives, you will like this book. If you need more action like a murder mystery, maybe not so much.
