The hot new collection from Mischief Books serves up delicious period goodies with tales of masters, mistresses and servants taking unusual and thrilling advantage of their positions (in both senses and every orifice!).
We're treated to culture too - Music features in Lips like Heaven where Donna George Storey makes sensuous play with Victorian parlour songs and in Hitting the Right Notes (Rose de Fer's startling take on a Victorian piano lesson), Art and Architecture feature in The Kiss (Ludivine Bonneur) and The Architect (Mina Murray) and we're gently reminded of the manners and constraints of an earlier age in Wanton Wagers (Morwenna Drake) and Christmas Carol (Heather Towne).
Amongst the heaving bosoms and ruffled linens we glimpse the thrills of forbidden love like The Engagement Party (Alegra Verde), Peekaboo Lace (Flora Dain) and The Lady and the Maid (Kathleen Tudor).
Disciplined desires make stirring encounters, breaking taboos makes hot, steamy reading.
Service with a wink!
