Review:  Stately Pleasures by Lucy Felthouse

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, then 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, though, 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.

This is an intriguing erotic romance with loves of steamy passion.

Landing her dream job as property manager at a British stately home, Alice Brown unfortunately finds her boss in a compromising position. And Alice suddenly finds herself in the wrong and being thrown an ultimatum by her boss Jeremy and his best friend and head of security Ethan. Stunned and confused she goes along with their indecent proposal and after she thinks things through she realizes that things aren’t so bad, there are worse things she could be doing to advance her career.

This steady paced plot is an erotic journey that explores the passion and sexual limits all in the name of career advancement. The author brings the story to life with vivid images, intense details and strong and compelling characters that are easily related to.

The chemistry between the three radiates heat from every page and the frequent sex scenes are hot and steamy with sexual language, BDSM, menage, anal sex and m/f/m that leave the reader singed. And to spice things up even more, some of the sex scenes take place in some unusual places and include some unusual accessories.

There is some suspense as well in the story as the reader tries to understand just what the threesome wants the outcome of their relationship to be that adds depth to the story and keeps the reader guessing.

I found the story to be a little unbelievable in that Alice was a little too accepting of some things or least accepting them a little too quickly, but I overall I found this story to be a stimulating and entertaining read.Stately Pleasures
