{Bound and Determined, #1}

[ Regency Erotica Historical Romance]


One night of fierce passion and unbound pleasure leaves two strangers craving much more in Lavinia Kent’s sumptuous novel of sensual discovery.

The time has come for the widow Louisa, Lady Brookingston, to move on, but she refuses to remarry at the cost of shaming her late husband’s memory. Their six years together were wedded bliss—even if a war injury prevented him from fulfilling his marital duties. Only one woman can help Louisa: Madame Rouge, the discreet proprietress of a club where London’s elite explore their wildest fantasies.

Geoffrey, the Marquess of Swanston, has no intention of agreeing to deflower an anonymous virgin. But when Madame Rouge tempts him with the absolute power he’ll have over a woman who knows nothing of carnal delights, he’s intrigued. Control is the one thing he cannot resist—and control is what he loses during his night with the blindfolded beauty. He longs to take her further, to leave his mark upon her perfect behind, but the mystery woman refuses to see him again. Instead Geoffrey reluctantly agrees to take a wife, the widow of his dear friend, Lord Brookingston—fating them both to a wicked surprise.

Mastering the Marquess is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

About the author…

Lavinia Kent never knew that most people don’t make up stories in their heads to pass the time. She still has a hard time understanding how those who don’t survive the doctor’s waiting room or a grocery store line without another world to escape into.

As the mother of three, Lavinia finds “leisure time” to be ever-elusive, but when she is not reading romance novels, she watches far too much HBO and reality television. It must also be noted that she has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Buffy and the new Doctor Who.

Mastering The Marquess (Bound And Determined, #1)MY THOUGHTS:

MASTERING THE MARQUESS by Lavenia Kent is an interesting Regency Erotica Historical Romance. “Bound and Determined” #1 and what a beginning!

With BDSM, determination, hot, steamy sex, romance and so much more, you can’t go wrong if you enjoy lots of spice with your sensuality.

From a bride, to a virgin widow, Louisa, Lady Brookingston is determined to lose her virginity once and for all without lessening her beloved husband’s name. You see he was a war hero, who could no longer perform is husbandry duties. So off to a Madame she goes, yes a madame, Ruby, Madame Rouge, to be exact, a discreet proprietress of a London Gentleman’s club, where she can explore and lose her virginity. What’s the likely hood, during this era?? Well, apparently, it happens more than you might image…imagination is a powerful aphrodisiac.

Enter, Geoffrey, the Marquess of Swanston, who has his own proclivities, but deflowering an anonymous virgin, he’s not so sure about. Until….Louisa is his temptation and his desire.

An interesting, tale of sensuality with BDSM, determination, romance and the finding of love, with a few surprises along the way. An unusual read to say the least, but an enjoyable read. Please be forewarned, hot, dark, steamy, sex, and did I mention, arousing, and extremely hot! Yes, if you enjoy a mixture of erotic, Regency, romance, and extremely hot sex scenes, and BDSM, than MASTERING THE MARQUESS is right up your ally. An enjoyable read and one I would highly recommend to any historical readers, erotic readers, and romance in general, who enjoy a mix of erotic with their dose of Regency. A wickedly sexy, romp!! Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
