Horror gave Lucy strength and she wrenched herself free of his grasp. ‘How dare you?’ she yelled. ‘How can you suggest such a thing, and you a man of God?’
‘What does it matter to you, slut?’ he spat, and taking his weapon in hand commenced working the foreskin up and down over his glans. ‘You’re only a servant who’ll end up with child to Lord Ludlow or one of his sons, and then you’ll be turned out on the street to fend for yourself and your bastard as best you can. You’ll become a whore in the end, so why not start now? You could buy a lot of fripperies with a penny.’
‘You disgust me!’ she hissed, but could not drag her gaze away from the sight of him masturbating…
When beautiful Lucy Browne, orphaned, penniless and fresh from the country, finds herself abandoned in London, she has no idea of the pitfalls. It is during the last quarter of the 18th century, an era of vice and debauchery. She is completely innocent and falls into the clutches of a brothel madam who pretends to befriend her, and then sells her to the highest bidder – aristocratic rake, Lord Tarquin, an expert in punishment.
As her cruel master, he robs Lucy of her virginity and submits her to slavery, teaching her the painful pleasures of correction and bondage. She is fascinated by him, but wilful and confused she falls in love with a poor student, Charles Prescot. But they are forced to part.
She becomes the mistress of a perverted old nobleman, and is soon renowned for her extravagance and wild parties. She is pursued by Lord Tarquin, and finds Charles again, but she is now a woman of substance.
Will she continue to be a notorious courtesan? Will she be Lord Tarquin’s slave, or marry Charles, or do all three?
The choice is hers.
