Publisher's Summary

Married once to a Baron who needed a young bride to bear him an heir, Cordelia Astley found herself in an untenable situation after his death, until Philip Stanley, the Marquess of Dunbury, asked her to be his bride. She knows he didn't marry her for love, but he was her white knight, and once they're married, she finds herself falling in love with him. It would be a fairy-tale ending if it wasn't for her stepdaughter, Gabrielle.

Having observed his cousins Hugh and Eleanor find happiness in their respective marriages, Philip doesn't see why his marriage should be any different. Especially since he managed to find a giving, submissive, delightful woman that drew him like no woman had ever done before. Everything would be perfect, except that she allows her stepdaughter to denigrate her and manipulate her. His method of correction for both Cordelia and Gabrielle isn't what either lady expected, but Cordelia finds confidence in his support and care of her.... If only she would put him first instead of Gabrielle, Philip's life would be everything he'd hoped.

A sexy spanking tale of desire, passion, and love, Philip's Rules is the first of a new series spin-off of the Domestic Discipline Quartet (you do not need to know the quartet to enjoy this audiobook).

Philip's Rules is an 80,000-word standalone novel set in Victorian times with a HEA and contains domestic discipline, spanking, birching, paddling, anal play and sex, the exciting danger of illicit situations, and some seriously delicious alpha men.

Sound very poor

This was actually an enjoyable story and fairly erotic. The performance of the narrator was mediocre at best and he sounded like he was in a metal tunnel. Better narration and sound would have enhanced this book.

Historical Romance

I love Golden Angel's Venus Rising Series so even though I had never read, or had any interest in reading, a historical romance book, I decided to give this book a try. I actually liked it better than I expected I would. I thought Gabrielle was a spoiled brat but I really liked Philip and Cordelia. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series to follow the lives of these interesting characters. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Enjoyable addition to the series

Having read all of a Golden Angel’s Domestic Discipline books it was good to meet up with some of the characters again in this book. Sadly I think this particular book is better read then listened to as I didn’t think the narrator was any good at doing female voices.
