At Hampton Court Palace, Lady Elinor Thewesbury is caught in the currents of Lord Eric Wysse’s dark desires when he recruits her to spy on King Henry VIII’s courtiers. Amid bacchanal, bondage and female ménage a trois, Elinor uncovers how information concerning the dissolution of English monasteries is being secretly passed to the Duchess of Heresford. Menace follows Lady Elinor in the person of Lord William Roxley as she secures the necessary proof.
Also uncovered is Elinor’s predilection for domination by the attractive, sensual Lord Wysse. Each searing encounter increases their craving for each other, but the assignment must take precedence. Once the evidence is in hand, Lord Wysse takes Elinor further into the depths of domination and submission sealing their future…
I really enjoyed this trip back into time. Kestra Gravier did an excellent job writing this historical, erotic romance. It was titillating, while remaining tasteful.
Lady Elinor is innocent, but keeps an open mind, when it comes to sexual situations. Her initial attraction to Lord Wysse continues to grow throughout the book as he introduces her to his kinky BDSM fetish.
When Lady Elinor goes on a secret mission for her lover, she walks into a perverse world of public fornication. She doesn’t resist an F/F/F counter, but in fact, enjoys it.
Lady Elinor at Hampton Court held my interest so intently, that I finished in it one sitting. The touch of history in setting, and dialogue felt true to the time. This was a hot, sexy read that ended with a HEA.
For a quick read, by a very talented new author, try Lady Elinor at Hampton Court. This erotic historical with BDSM elements is one to I’ll remember. Kestra Gravier…more please!
