Adult/18+ Read

Book Blurb

statelypleasures (2)Three’s a magic number in this steamy love triangle set in a British stately home. Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It’s only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it’s the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs. Unfortunately, things don’t get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what’s happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, throw an ultimatum at her, she’s so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal. When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, she realises that perhaps it isn’t such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all.


Five star Ménage *****

Thanks to author Lucy Felthouse visits to the UK’s stately homes will somehow never be the same again as I will always be imagining what goes on behind closed doors and after hours…..

Stately Pleasures is a sinfully seductive, no-holds-barred MFM ménage. When Alice takes up a coveted Property Manager post at Davenport manor to cover maternity leave, she is determined that NOTHING will get in the way of using the appointment to further her career. Very soon after she starts work she is compromised by none other than the property’s owner Jeremy. She finds herself agreeing to become a willing participant in a series of sexy challenges in locations in and around the manor, serving the imaginative and diverse carnal needs of Jeremy and his friend Ethan, the  head of security. And oh, how deliciously diverting I found these scenes to be!

Ensconced in the manor, Alice dutifully performs her professional duties not knowing when she will be called upon to perform her private ones for the two men who have her in their thrall. What started out as a chore (albeit a delightful one – as both men are sinfully gorgeous), soon becomes much more. Alice risks her heart as she comes to care for both men, yet is ever mindful of the fast approaching end of her contract which will also herald the end of their ‘arrangement.’ How will she cope with the aftermath?

This sensual and erotic read, with its British humour and cuss words, is a very naughty one and I loved the descriptive powers of the author as each ‘scene’ unfolded and Alice submits to the two men’s sexy games. Jeremy and Ethan are both real hotties: different but equally scorching on the ‘scorchometer,’ complementing Alice perfectly. Jeremy is polite but masterful and Ethan is muscular and caring and I loved how they both made the curvaceous Alice feel womanly and desirable and she finds that she can’t get enough of them!

I was very soon invested in their unorthodox relationship and wanted to see it work, desiring a HEA for the three of them.  I also liked he fact that although Alice was submissive when it came to sex that equality reigned elsewhere in their relationship and the men never forced her to do anything she did not want them to do – that s not to say that their sexual proclivities did not take her by surprise and tested and expanded her limits!

This is an excellent read for lovers of erotic romance who appreciate the dynamics of a loving ménage.
