Fabulous Historical Romance!
Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tena... Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tenacious Wife (Love's Second Chance Series Book 4) - Bree Wolf

Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tenacious Wife is a phenomenal historical romance by Bree Wolf.  Ms. Wolf has once again impressed me with her story-telling abilities.  Abandoned & Protected is a well-written book furnished with a stellar cast of characters.  Five-year-old Henrietta is in the home when her abusive father murders her mother and then himself.  Connor is the future Marquis of Rodridge and the new chief of clan Brunwood and meets Henrietta on his way to London to claim his father's titles.  Connor and Henrietta's story is packed with everything a historical romance should have, drama, action, humor, steamy sex and suspense.  I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by Bree Wolf.  Abandoned & Protected is book 4 of the Love's Second Chance Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Secrets, tides, and some steam made this a good quick read.
Marooned with a Marquis - Emily Murdoch

I enjoyed this story and have enjoyed the series. In this one, Adena wanted to be alone, found herself stranded due to the tide coming in, and determined to get back to the beach by walking through the water. Luke "rescued" her, and their romance began. Adena was honest and open, and accepting of her fate. I wanted to smack Luke to get him to reveal his secret, but other than that, he was open with Adena. Their love was one of first sight, the sparks flew quickly, and the depth of their feelings became obvious. I recommend this story.

This is my unsolicited review.

Phallocracy: "Juliette" by Marquis de Sade, Austryn Wainhouse (Trans.)
Juliette - Austryn Wainhouse,Marquis de Sade


(Original Review, 1981-04-04)



Histoire de Juliette ou les Prospérités du Vice (Story of Juliette or The Prosperities of Vice) by de Sade.

Profoundly disturbing - not only in its depiction of cold-hearted indulgence, by way of a text nearly as long as War and Peace, in murder, rape, robbery and more horrors besides, but also in its capability to beguile and confuse readers of a feminist persuasion.

Angela Carter fell for it: "[Sade's] great women [characters in Juliette], ... once they have tasted power, once they know how to use their sexuality as an instrument of aggression, they use it to extract vengeance for the humiliations they were forced to endure as the passive objects of the sexual energy of others ...”

Philosophy in the Bedroom: "The 120 Days of Sodom" by Marquis de Sade
The 120 Days of Sodom - Marquis de Sade

(Original Review, 2008)

 


Personally,I think the way to understand De Sade is as a global pioneer in the art of trolling. His actual sexual acts were fairly tame in the broad scheme of things - 15 year-old servants, but people were getting married at that age in his time. As far as history records, his actual practical sexual tastes didn't extend much further than a little light flagellation and buggery. What he really loved was to shock and upset people with what he wrote, and he was extraordinarily good at it. In 'Philosophy in the Bedroom', he extends the theory that God must want us to have anal sex, or he wouldn't have made our arseholes so deliciously tight.

Mistress of the Marquis by Margaret McPhee
Mistress to the Marquis - Margaret McPhee

The story starts with a break up. A rich lord decides that it's time to marry and tells his mistress that their affair is over. And of course after that the fool realizes that he is in love with his mistress and living without her is quite miserable.
The mistress, who can't believe what a jerk the lord was, leaves his house, starts acting again and tries to go on with her life. But it's not so easy when you bump into your ex every time you turn around.

I liked the story. It didn't bother me that I didn't know anything about the beginning of their affair.
  It was a solid 4 stars read.
