A Maid for All Seasons: Vol 1 ~ Devlin O’Neill ~ Chimera ~ Erotica / Contemporary / Spanking

This is not the first time this book has been made available, but as I didn’t read it first time round, I’m glad I did now. Aside from fantasy vampires, contemporary erotica, especially with spanking scenes, has to come on my top list of erotic reads, and thankfully Mr O’Neill has written one naughty book that fits the bill perfectly – well, almost!

I had a little trouble getting into this story, as when a few family members were mentioned I felt a slight twinge of disgust. Now, anyone who knows me, knows I’m open-minded, but I just didn’t want to go down that incestuous road, and as most publishers don’t allow this anyway I bit my lip, straightened out my nose, and stuck with it.

Fortunately, much to my delight, and relief, A Maid for All Seasons changed direction and from that moment on I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Lisa’s submissive life with her employer, Mr Swayne, and his secretary, Ms Trelawny is a treat to read. The spanking scenes were written well, and they drove the plot forward, not hindered it. To be honest, each chapter just got better and better, and by the time I finished the book, I was already searching the books section to find out what volume two was like.

I know I had a bumpy start with this book, but if anything, this developed into one of those books I want to read more of! Happily I can now say I will be checking out the next in the series.
