Publisher's Summary

The Marquess of Alastair has doubled the dowry he is providing Miss Abbott because the sooner she is married, the sooner she is out of his care - and his fantasies.

To Mildred Abbott's dismay, her dowry is now attracting numerous unwanted suitors, and she has no interest in marrying. What she wants is an encore of her night at the Ch'teau Follet, where Alastair once fulfilled her most wicked desires.

When just such an opportunity unexpectedly arises, Alastair concedes to her proposition on one condition: that she never again return to Ch'teau Follet.

But when their families get together for Christmas and Mildred is confronted with her true feelings for Alastair, will the wicked debauchery of Ch'teau Follet prove too great a temptation?

Listener advisory: Listening to the previous book, Submitting to the Marquess, is recommended but not required to enjoy this scorching hot holiday story. This erotic historical romance contains BDSM elements, themes of submission and domination, and other forms of wicked pleasures.

Hot Erotica and BDSM

I enjoyed this story by Em Brown. Although some of the BDSM scenes were a bit harsh for my tastes, there was nothing nonconsual or cruel about it. I really liked the underlying story and would love to read/listen to a "softer" version of the story, i.e. same level of eroticism with less BDSM elements. I enjoyed both Mildred and Alastair, and I loved Lady Catherine and her subtle (or not) attempts to bring Alastair and Mildred together. It was a bit like leading a horse to water. It took him a while to decide to drink. I loved the ending. It satisfied even a romantic like me.

The narration took me a little while to get used to, but once I acclimated it suited me just fine.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request. This is my honest, voluntary review.

Great narration makes the story even hotter

Wonderful narration makes the already scorching story even hotter. It's easy to listen to Em Brown read the story, and she really captures both Millie's character as well as Alistair's voice. They are written with nuance and depth. Millie may be submissive in bed, but she isn't afraid to stand up to Alistair and fight for what she wants. And she does it without seeming out of time or too modern.

Alistair is used to being obeyed, in bed and out, so Millie gives him a real challenge. All of that desire, frustration, and emotion comes across in Brown's narration. I don't always like women reading male voices, but she did a great job.
