Review: Memoirs of Lady Montrose by Virginnia DeParte

Christopher Mortlock—gardener extraordinaire. Everything you’d want from your gardener—and more, much more. Hedges trimmed and cravings tended with expert care and consideration.

Lady Helen attends a Brighton establishment to be sexually satisfied by their staff. Her husband Henry pays for this arrangement and together they relive the experiences.

This idyllic scheme falls apart when Christopher Mortlock recognises Lady Helen in London and endeavours to blackmail her. He is unaware of Lord Henry’s involvement and Mortlock’s blackmail plot is turned around to the benefit of all three of them.

Mortlock agrees to a new proposal to satisfy Lady Helen’s sexual needs and is inventive and athletic in his labours as their gardener and employee—until the day he introduces her to 'fairy dust'. Lord Henry’s wrath descends to save Lady Helen from addiction and punish Mortlock for his audacity.

Much younger and much loved wife of Henry, Lady Helen is much in love with her husband but needs sexual relief.  His age has caught up to him, and while they two are deeply committed to one another, his impotence is a condition that he does not wish to burden his wife with.  To that end, he provides her a respite and ‘servicing’ at a house that caters to the needs of society’s women.  Believing herself safe from discovery, an attempt at blackmail is made by one of the men who had provided her relief.

When Henry hires the man as a “gardener” both to service his wife and to squash a chance of his revealing the secret relationship in the city, it is hard not to draw a comparison to Lady Chatterly’s lover at this point.  With incredibly well described sensual details, and the well-defined relationship and admiration between Henry and Helen, the story incorporates highly sexualized tension and action with solid characters in Helen and Henry that add to the sense of possibility in the story.

A clever twist on an “anything for the woman I love” theme, DeParte has created a short and steamy story that gives the reader many steamy moments and a story to enjoy.

I received an eBook from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: al conclusions are my own responsibility.
