Publisher's Summary

How far will this Regency miss go to tempt a marquess? 

On the surface, Mildred Abbott is a proper Regency miss. But secretly compromised, she longs to explore the pleasures of the flesh. Engaged to an uninspiring sycophant, she asks the influential nephew of her patroness in debauchery to interfere and break her engagement. When her appeals to him fail, she decides to take a singular opportunity--a visit to the Chateau Debauchery--to experience one night of pleasure before she submits herself to a life of wedded dullness. 

The Marquess of Alastair concerns himself with no one, but to appease his aunt on her birthday, he agrees to select one person whose interests he will look after. It was not his intention to choose the plain and simple Miss Abbott, but when she unexpectedly shows up at the Chateau Debauchery, his hand is forced. Knowing his aunt to be partial to the miss, he grudgingly decides to act the part of a gentleman and preserve Miss Abbott's honor by removing her from the Chateau. But Mildred refuses to go until she has had her night of debauchery.

Well that was fun

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

This was a good story of Mildred, wanting a little fun before she married. Mildred ends up have a night of passion, unlike anything she had experienced before, with her cousin (by marriage). I enjoyed the story.. however, it did take a bit to get there.

The narration was ok, however, there were many duplicate sentences read, so this should be edited further.

Overall, it was a good short listen, which did get to the meat of the matter..

Steamy and fun

This story had me alternating between amused and hot. It promised, and it delivered!

Mildred was a delight, she was a lovely mix of innocence and passion and the combination made the story hot.

Well written it has a great flow to it. The characters and setting are both well developed and I'm interested in reading other books by Georgette Brown.

The narration was average, it neither added to nor detracted from the story. There were several editing errors where mistakes were not edited out and this interrupted the flow of the story a few times.

Well

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a book about a young woman who wanted to experience sexual adventures before settling into a marriage with a boring man. The story starts there and ends there. We get to experience all of the things she did. It ends on what could be a cliffhanger of sorts. The narration had so many repeated sentences that I was sure the editing needed to catch. If you want a lot of sex and little plot then this is the book for you.

A good...good erotica

This was my first work by Ms Brown and it was a fantastic listen. 8 was able to lose myself in the story and hear two different personalities both strong in their different ways. Alaster and Maddy are both what the other never knew they needed in one another. Alaster an unrepentant rake and Lady Maddy a woman, bound by the restrictions of family and society. I liked Lady Maddy’s forwardness in asking what she wanted and going after it while still trying to maintain an image expected of her.

Wickedly, steamy romance in polite language!

This is a great steamy romance that is set in Regency England at the time when people, especially young women, were expected to be very prim and proper and innocent when it came to sexual exploits. This young woman is set to marry a less than desirable man and is given the opportunity for a night of sexual debauchery to fill her dreams for the rest of her life. Unless the Marquess tries to do the honourable thing and stop her. The thing that I really liked about this book was that it was all written with very polite language which is a bit different from the usual.

No Matter The Year Women Have Desires Just Like Men

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Mildred is getting old, 20s, by Regency standards and finally accepts a proposal, but regrets the dull man she’s accepted. Wanting to get out of it, her not by blood cousin, the Marquess, can withdraw the dowry and she could get out it. He refuses
Having desires she wants to enjoy before getting married (she has lost her virginity to the stable boy) she is taken by a friend to a place where the rich go to enjoy carnal pleasures for the night.
The Marquess is there, horrified Mildred is....so goes the story.
Fun for a change for a woman’s point of view regarding sex and the man being hesitant or more concerned about her honor.
I would like to hear more about Mildred and what happens...I can imagine..
The narrator did an excellent job..good flow..good accents...very believable.

4.5 stars

An enjoyable bawdy historical romance set at the notorious Chateau Follett. Milly and Alastair enjoy an unforgettable night at Madam Follett's establishment.

I thought this was a really engaging audiobook. I enjoyed the plot and I thought the characters had great chemistry. Georgette Brown knows how to draw you in and really knows how to turn up the heat.
