En este libro Debra Glass se anotó un hit. He de decir que el tema BDSM en la actualidad en algunos sectores aún se considera tabú, ahora aterrizar este escenario en 1838 es un gran reto. En esta historia tenemos un típico matrimonio por conveniencia, muy usual en la época, a lo que sumamos unos poco usuales gustos sexuales, que ademas se suman a una restrictiva educación y tenemos a Patience, una protagonista temerosa de sus deseos y desconocedora de su propia sexualidad.

My review is cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed:

Buku Debra Glass yang ke 2, setelah suka sama buku pertama yang dibaca, semangat cari buku DG yang lain, terpilihlah buku ini, karna covernya keren terus sinopsisnya menarik.

All the stories by Ms. Glass have really well written BDSM scenes. The only problem I have with this story is that the hero seems to be a bit too abrupt. *Shrugs* I like the Dom/Sub play, but he just seems to take it a bit too far for me.
