The Duchess, Her Maid, the Groom & Their Loverby Victoria Janssen
Synopses & Reviews
Wretched be the woman of wealth and fortune who fails to produce a suitable heir .
And wretched is what Duchess Camille feels living with the cruel and debauched duke. But that soon turns to desperation when she learns her lecherous husband is plotting to have her killed to make way for a more nubile and fertile companion. Knowing she cannot sit idly by and wait for death, she flees into the night, taking with her her own young lover—the stable hand Henri—and her most loyal servants.
With a mind to finding refuge with Maxime, her first love who years ago ignited her sexuality, Camille and her servants take cover in brothels along the way and succumb to the physical delights on offer, sating their longings and fueling jealousies with one another. But the duke's men are not far behind, and Camille knows they must press on, hoping against hope that the man who has every reason to turn her away will remember the fervent passion that once coursed between them.
From the author of more than 30 short erotic stories written under the pen name Elspeth Potter comes a sizzling tale of a duchess who learns her husband plans to kill her. Camille and her entourage take cover in brothels, succumbing to the physical delights they offer. Original.
Sexual escapades dominate and sexual tension runs high as Duchess Camille searches out her first love as her troupe of followers forge their own sexual paths to enlightenment.
