An innocent girl 1920. Seventeen-year-old Sophie is a scullery maid at a large country house, Belfield Hall, but what she truly desires is to dance on stage in London.
Caught up in a dangerous game
Glamorous Lady Beatrice offers her assistance, though not without an ulterior motive. A new heir — the seductively handsome Lord Ashley — is about to arrive at the Hall: a man that Beatrice will do anything to ensnare. . .even if she has to exploit her young maid.
Of forbidden passion
What she doesn’t know is that Sophie has met Ash once before. And as Lady Beatrice’s devious plan unravels, Sophie has two choices: refuse to be a mere plaything for the man she loves so desperately, or give in to the thrill of unimaginable sexual pleasure. . .
Set in a country house in the 1920s, this tale of forbidden love between a kitchen maid and her aristocratic master is perfect for fans of Downton Abbey and E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.
