The Well-Born Strumpet Audiobook

The Well-Born Strumpet

Author: Pornelope Narrator: Aiden Black Release Date: April 2019

Alyssa is a good girl-until her father dies and their home is sold to pay his gambling debts. Lord Worthington may have hired her to tutor his grandchildren, but first she has to reach his fine manor safely after being abandoned in a horrible storm! The four virile men who run the country inn where she takes sanctuary are happy to offer her food and lodging...in exchange for her innocence! ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~ Nate kept telling her more stories that were so funny, she barely even cared when they began bordering on raunchy. Her blushes, she assured herself, could be written off to laughter and the stove's heat as easily as virginal embarrassment. "But that was afore Khenan joined us," he suddenly interrupted himself as he washed dirty dishes and stacked them neatly on the counter. "Gods alive, what a stir that caused! Brigands stole the ship he was on, and killed or ditched most of the crew; he was one of the few who made it safely to shore. He wandered about for a few days-daft in his head, you could say-and finally chanced on our little inn just at dinner's hour when a certain high lordship and his fair lady were stayin' the night. "Now she's such a one that a man's interest just has to stand and salute," he added enthusiastically, and wiggled his eyebrows for emphasis. "No way around it, and to my way o' thinkin', that's the finest praise any man can pay a woman, be she maid or maiden. And this one..." He sighed in blissful delight at some memory only he could see. "What a woman she is, and none too proud to reward a man for admirin' the view. "Then Khenan staggers in, naked as the day he was born, with his staff already hard and high from spyin' our cleanin' girl out in the yard. And a fine pretty lass she is, too, and never too busy for a kiss or a toss in the hay. "So this fine lady," he grinned, noting that Alyssa hadn't understood a single one of his lewd references, "jumps up from her table and coos over him like a mother hen with a wounded chick. Nothin' would do but she take him up to her own room and nurse him back to full health, so to speak, and she even barred her rich husband from the room so they wouldn't be disturbed. He was in a fine takin' over that, believe me! "But our Betsy, who'd followed Khenan inside, took his lordship in hand, you could say, and soothed his ruffled feathers half the night, bless her heart. None of us got a wink of sleep with Khenan and her ladyship upstairs, and Betsy with his lordship downstairs, and half the other patrons makin' their own party in the dinin' room. It was a wild night we'll never forget!" Alyssa envisioned an entirely different scenario, and nodded her confused agreement. "Her ladyship insisted on stayin' an extra three days 'til she was sure Khenan was in top form. He bore it like a trooper, to be sure, and decided the country life was so much to his likin', he stayed on to tend our horses." So he wasn't a slave after all, she realized, and tried to wrap her mind around the concept of a black man being a valued employee. "...she had to be carried out to their coach, poor woman, she was that tuckered out," Nate was saying when she finally recalled herself. "But his lordship had enjoyed the stay, and Betsy got a nice purse from it, so everyone was happy. And she makes certain they pass through here every fortnight or so-to check on Khenan's, ah, good health." "She sounds like a remarkable lady," Alyssa murmured, baffled but warmed by the woman's obvious devotion to the massive black stablehand. "Aye, that she is." Nate chuckled, and turned away to unobtrusively adjust the fit of his breeches. Just the lurid memory had made

The Lifted Curtain & My Conversion Audiobook

The Lifted Curtain & My Conversion

Author: Honore Gabriel Riquettieau Narrator: Veronika Hyks Release Date: May 2013

The Lifted Curtain and My Conversion are two short erotic classics written by the colourful, aristocratic political fire-brand, esteemed author, and renowned libertine the Comte Gabrel Honore Riquetti de Mirabeau, who spent much of his young adult life in prison at the behest of this father, who disapproved of his son's licentious behaviour. During one particular stretch, Mirabeau decided to put pen to paper, to while away the time and to make the separation from his then paramour more bearable. Pock-marked but boisterous, he never had trouble seducing the ladies, so his two stories are in part based on his own experience. The Lifted Curtain confronts the age old taboo of incest and My Conversion is a humorous but cynical exploration of the sexual appetites of ladies of quality. For 200 years their publication remained clandestine, but they established Mirabeau's reputation as a writer, and in later years he became one of the Revolution's finest oratore. His state funeral lasted three days, and he is buried in the Pantheon. Public Domain (P)2013 Aquarium Audio Books
