The Sexual Awakening of a Lady of Class - a Victorian erotic romance adventure

The Sexual Awakening of a Lady of Class - a Victorian erotic romance adventure - Leslie Midnight A bawdy, naughty freebie read set in 1919 England with a 42 y/o widow, a 20 y/o soldier home from war, and a little bit of ganja smoking.

The isn't a love story with an HEA, but a naughty read about a woman finally getting to experience uninhibited sex. Her marriage offered sex in the dark with little intimacy or pleasure. Her awakening was the best part of this little story. The dialogue was often over-the-top, but it also made it a fun read with the bawdy nature of this May/December relationship.

There were parts of this story that I enjoyed, but oddly it wasn't the sex scenes. The first sex scene was fades out and we are told the details after the fact! In an erotica? WTF? And then the story picks up in present time once again. Odd. They were getting hot and bothered, then all of a sudden the narration changes and says:

And so as the full moon shone into his bedroom and she smoked ganja and drank the best vintage champagne since 1874, he went down on her; his nose, lips and tongue, licking, sucking, kissing and caressing her sex, with his fingers and hand sliding into her most intimate feminine recesses, finger fucking her as his beloved French widow had shown him, until Lady Constance was shuddering, gasping and panting, and clutching the arms of the chair, and using terms of endearment she had never used with her husband, or any man for that matter.


Not all sex scenes were fade to black, so it redeemed itself as an erotica should. Overall, it was a fun quick read and worth the 'free' price tag.
