Another wonderful AP story from this author! I really enjoyed it. I felt bad for Lady Penelope at the beginning until I realized the convent wasn’t her first choice for her life. Her arranged marriage is certainly a blessing in disguise. Fun read.

This is the first book I have read by this author but she did a great job with the story and the characters. It was very sexy hot story. I certainly will follow this author and read more of her books.

Lady Penelope Lennox, was in a convent, serving the words of the Lord. Until her father arranged for a marriage to another Lord. She was submissive and innocent in so many ways. But this man is nothing like her Lord. She will find herself. Lord Alton Westcott! So many words( lascivious,salacious and insidious) to describe a highly volatile man, his sexual exploits are of legend. He will need to condition his betrothed. She is skittish and has fallen for the word of a wicked ex lover. Can Alton guide her, train her and gain her love and acceptance? Will she flourish, will she take to her new role? Ava Sinclair is just one of the many facets to a truly gifted and brilliant author. I find her books arousing,titillating and the stories transports me to another time and place. The writing seduces and mesmerizes. I have loved and taken great pleasure in her books. My personal thoughts… I found myself laughing, crying and truly enjoying the relationship between Penelope and Alton. Not to mention Tom and Betsy. This is a book that should not be missed!!
★★★★★ Virgilia Coriolanus @ Amazon.com “I really enjoyed this, as usual of Ava Sinclair’s books” on December 4, 2015
I really enjoyed this, as usual of Ava Sinclair’s books.
Without giving away the plot, one of the things I really enjoyed was a slight twist on a trope that the author frequently uses in her books–which involves the hiring of a governess or nanny. I did not expect it to go the way that it did, and it made sense for it to have gone that way. I really enjoyed it because it shows, obviously, that not all relationships are the same, and we all need different things. But I really didn’t expect it! It was a lovely twist.
Second thing, with churlish glee, was the part about how Lady Penelope was deeply religious and sheltered and longed to go back to what she knew. I can identify with this greatly, as I am transitioning from child to adult (and ugh, adulting is HARD and I’m not even properly doing it yet), so I really felt Lady Penelope’s struggle and just *got* how she was feeling. And then there’s of course the religious shame to it all—which makes for very hot sex scenes and inner turmoils. As a side note, I just never, ever understood why religions (in this case, the Christian variety) were so against masturbation, etc. I’m just sayin’–if I wanted my kid to stay “pure” until marriage, I’d give them a vibrator/fleshlight for their 18th birthday. Just something random that popped in my head while reading, lol.
Lastly–I LOVED the relationship and “hope” that Lady Penelope had with her lady’s maid, Betsy. As I was reading, I was really really hoping that Betsy would get her happy ending (plus she was an awesome lesson/character in how slut shaming is done by men, who have no problems partaking in what they have to offer, but are too good for them to be in a real relationship/marry them)…….
Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. I almost enjoy the female friendships more, but honestly. I come for the sex scenes, and everything else is the gravy that I smother my fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, biscuits, and corn in. Yes, I was raised by a Southern Mama.

I’ve always been a fan of this Authors work. Including the writing she did as Elsa Black. Elsa Black
I loved the tone and feel of this particular story. A naive lady lead made it seem like she would fight and protest but her secret willingness to learn and love her new husband hit me right in the feels. As always the supporting characters are great and I fast fell in love with the minx of a maid that Ava has written.
The slight twist on the common ‘nanny’ theme made me giggle and love the other characters that much more. I love both the internal and external battle between what society expects and what we desire as healthy complicated women and as always She captures it perfectly. I gobbled this book up in one sitting.
★★★★★ Kindle Customer @ Amazon.com “Another great one by ms sinclair” on December 5, 2015
Love the story line how Lord Weston guided his convent raised future wife. Taught her it was not a sin to enjoy her body.he is very patient and learns to love his wife as she learns how to please and love him. Lots of sex and discipline but what I like the most is he listens to her ,to what she needs. He dismisses a struck nanny because he shortly realizes she is too much like the stricken nuns. His little one needs a father inquire and a husband but she only needs him and the maidens grows to love. I love how they both grow. How he changes his mind about the nanny when he realizes his mistake. He admits his mistake like a real man. I really enjoyed this book.
