SMUTACILIOUS!!!


I have to say Dr. Mabeuse certainly has a gift for writing high brow porn. This is my second experience with his writing & I think this one is even smuttier than A Good Student. The plot's not very involved but there is some emotionality. Mainly it's just some deliciously hot & kinky sex. Definitely spank bank material. A more apropos title would have been Plundering Abigail.

Abigail is traded by her father to Dr. Trier (Hahahaha! Love that name.) to pay off his gambling d

Lady Raven RAVE!
This book surely would not be for everyone. It's your typical formula with father gambles away daughter in a card game. Abigail was given to The Doctor aka Lucien. There isn't really much to the plot other than both characters growing sexually. This book contains strong sex, bondage as well as the sexual language was very strong. I like this book it's not bad it takes you on a sexual journey of 2 people it might be a little too hard core for some people though.

I did not like this book. Just a series of sex scenes with no real plot or character devolpment. Abigail,a virgin, in given to the dr by her father and within days they are calling each other "darling" and "my love". Really?
