My Lady of the Whip Reviews
I LOVED IT! This book was nothing short of FANTASTIC and VERY well done!I loved that Venetia took actual historical characters and created this fiction about them. Knowing the historical facts (as described in the forward of the book) was like getting a "behind the scenes" glimpse before the show, and it made me very interested to see how Venetia would have the characters going from point A (the beginning) to point B (the end).As this is set in historical times, the entire narration is written in an old-world style and uses, refreshingly, a lot of words that, shall we say, expanded my vocabulary (thank goodness for the dictionary in my Kindle app!). I felt this made the book so much more authentic, or as authentic as I can imagine people speaking in the 1300s.While tragedy and dark circumstances appeared for a good part of the book, that darkness was combated by the "silvery" glow of William, the valiant knight who finds his true love and refuses to accept life without her, despite her resistance.Bess was very complex in her thinking, but I am SO happy with the ending and felt that her actions made the story a real page-turner!This is an erotic historical romance (with some HOT love scenes), but it portrays both eroticism and romanticism in what I felt was a perfect balance. Venetia is VERY talented, and I would, without hesitation, read anything she writes!***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
>Review - My Lady of the Whip>I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock. I am an independent reviewer. This is a stand alone novel that ends in an HEA.>Elizabeth is a lady in waiting to a Countess, in London during the Black Plague. She is saved from rape by a nobleman, William. He is betrothed, but Bess has always had a crush on him. There is a large group for dinner at the castle of the Count and Countess, but the Count and Countess decide not to attend. So we find Bess, alone at the high table. She begins to notice all types of fornication going on around her and is shocked, as she is still a virgin. William, noticing her distress, moves her to sit away from the orgy. He is attracted to Bess and begins a seduction. Fast forward 9 years later. William is searching for Bess and thinks she may be a high priced whore who wields a whip.>This story has 3 distinct scenes: the near rape, the orgy at dinner and the whore in the tower. There is a lot of descriptive dialogue, some quite disgusting, such as describing how the plague's pustule pops and oozes all over Bess' leg. The bawdy talk between the common soldiers was quite realistic, I would think. The discussions were at turns humorous and crude. This book could be described as a medieval BDSM. The whip is mentioned quite a bit, a dark history of how Bess was trained to wield it is just glossed over. If the portion of the story introducing the cousin and heir and his sick relationship with Bess was written, the book would have been more complete. As it stands, we have 2 extended sex scenes and some bawdy talk. Not much for the plot. > This book is for an adult audience.
Outstanding Book! I enjoy a delicious medieval romp and when the author has the necessary history chops to ground it in brilliant reality, I’m right there. Venetia Green does just that and more. She obviously knows a great deal about history, but also about character growth, storytelling and has an evocative style of writing. And not to mention its hot! The opening scene quickly drew me in with her flawless writing that makes the reader experience everything the heroine is undergoing. It’s gritty, harrowing, and sets the tone for the book. The story stays fast-paced and it unfolds like a movie in your mind. Everything I could hope for! My Lady of the Whip ended up keeping me up to the wee hours as I read it in one sitting. In short, highly recommended. Angelina J. Windsor
