This highly charged erotic novel recounts the story Bernie and her lesbian lover, Genevieve who finds themselves caught up in dark history of a secret New England brothel which flourished in the early 20th century.
They befriend an old woman who once worked at the place, who tells a curious story of sex, mystery and death.
Any fans of Anne Rice's The Witching Hour will find some similar themes, but this novel's unique, detailed descriptions of New England landscape is unique, and rivals even fellow New Englander Stephen King.
Warning: This is a Wicked Castle selection. It's a little different than our other Blushing Books selection. It contains Femdom (Female Dominant, Male Submissive) Lesbian (Female / Female) and Bondage
This was a nice atmospheric piece. It does have some Stephen King esque moments, but what it reminds me of more is one of the lighter X-Files episodes. I liked the dynamic between the two main characters, too – they came across not only as believable lovers, but believable friends and people who could work together. I think the ‘believability’ is enough that even those who don’t normally like paranormal stories will enjoy this.
Update on my last rant...just discovered this site is owned by my previous publisher, so I feel a lot better...thought someone was pirating the books...
I am the author of these books, writing as Autumn Brooks. These books were originally published on WickedVelvet.com and the rights reverted to me in the early 2000s. I have not authorized the sale of these books on this or any other site. Any errors in these books are attributed to unauthorized changes and publication of these books.
I found this book the most boring of all the books I have ever read. Long, too descriptive and very poorly written. However, if you like a lot of home and period details, this might be the book for you.
First, I have to say I normally do not buy the lesbian themed stories but I stumbled upon one by another author and liked it so figured I would give this one a try. Now if you are looking strictly for lesbian theme or a lot of spanking, this is probably not for you. However, it is a really great book with multiple fantasy/thriller type stories all in one wrapped up in a great big bow of the love and sensuality. Glad I didn't pass this one up. Very enjoyable and well written.
