Although the nurse was blocking the doorway she was so surprised by the intrusion Hetty managed to push past her, and the scene that met her eyes when she entered Sir Victor’s bedroom made her gasp in shock.
Jane was stretched facedown on the bed stark naked, her wrists and ankles tethered to the four bedposts. Sir Victor sat helpless in his wheelchair, but in his right hand the lusty lord held a long riding whip he was quite capable of wielding from his position.
‘What is going on here?’ Hetty cried, although the question was rhetorical. She was sufficiently familiar with his lordship’s depraved tastes to know exactly what was taking place. Then suddenly strong arms seized her from behind.
‘Interfering little cow!’ Nanny Baines hissed in her ear.
Forsaking the delights of the Parisian demi-monde Hetty and Leonard return to Longton Hall, where even though he is now crippled, the lecherous Sir Victor is still terrorising the household with his depraved ways, aided by the fearsome Nanny Baines.
Disguised as ‘George’, Hetty dallies with the lovely Jane, who has replaced her as lady’s maid, but when caught the pair are harnessed to Sir Victor’s wheelchair, and even ‘George’ is subjected to his unwanted attentions.
Eventually the ever-lustful lord is really taken for a ride. But Hetty’s victory over her former employer does not alter her feelings for his son Leonard, who remains her one true master.
