Publisher's Summary

Lady Amelia Fitzwilliam is approaching her 30th year, and her umpteenth season without selecting a husband. Her elder brother is so concerned over this state of affairs that he's tripled her already obscene dowry in hopes that the coming season will finally see her leg-shackled. Opposed to the establishment of marriage to begin with, Amelia has no intention of giving up her freedom - or the taboo predilections she engages in behind closed doors. After all, what lord of the town would submit himself to a woman who enjoys subjecting her bed-mates to pain and domination for life? Since she has yet to meet such a man, Amelia contents herself with the long life of spinsterhood stretching out before her.
Michael Darling is a simple gentleman farmer, satisfied to live out his days rusticating in the country. He has no reason to run off to London searching for a bride - except for the matter of his dire financial straits. Debt has bled his coffers dry, leaving him with only one option: quickly find and wed a woman with an enormous dowry. When he encounters Lady Amelia Fitzwilliam in a gaming hell, the lady's reputation precedes her. A wager made over a card game will put her within his grasp, but the discovery of her peculiar tastes in the bedroom has him wondering if they could ever make a good match. Soon, Michael will realize that Amelia's domination appeals to him more than he would have ever dreamed, causing him to fall rapidly under her spell. However, a dark past comes with Amelia's tendencies, making her hard to woo and even harder to love. Never one to back down from a challenge, Michael sets out to untangle the convoluted puzzle Amelia presents and, hopefully, win her heart.

Scottish burr

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love listening to books with a British accent and absolutely love the Scottish burr. I am so glad she got a great guy. I enjoyed it very much.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mr. Darling because you just make your males sound so romantic and hot.

Have you listened to any of Simon Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to so many different men read and all I can say is he is one of my favorites.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when she realized his mother and sister accepted her for herself.

Senual and highly satisfying

Mistress Victoria have done it again! Written a masterpiece and a continuation of Submitting to the Marquis but this time about Amelia, Simon’s sister and her search to escape her past and find her future with a suitable husband. She is taken by surprise when she meets a certain Mr. Darling in London...

The narrator has a voice which is built for sin, and fits the role of the males in Mistress Victoria’s stories about the Fitzwilliam siblings, beautifully! His narration as Simon Fitzwilliam and Michael Darling is to die for! I can recommend this story very HIGHLY!
The story is sensual and highly satisfying!

Congratulations Mistress Victoria on yet another gorgeous story!

Fantastic Book - Great Audiobook - A Steamy Tale

The book is a brilliant read and this audiobook is fantastic.

Michael Darling comes from a close and loving family, whereas Amelia has never experienced the love of a mother and father and along with her brother has been psychologically damaged. Michael and Amelia's differing childhoods define them. Michael is a strong, confident and loving character. Amelia is shuttered, secretive and doesn't know how to love or trust.

Michael seeks Amelia out and pursues her as he needs to marry an heiress with a large dowry to save his estate - Amelia is an heiress with a huge dowry, but has no intention of marrying as she has a fear of being dominated by a man. However, meeting Michael is the turning point in her life....

The narration of the book is really good - it is a fantastic story - once started hard to put down!
I particularly like to listen and read along at the same time - really immersive!

I highly recommend this audiobook.
