In modern day France, Cassandra has
been living with the Baron for more than 18 months. She
might even have the record for the length of time she has
been with the Baron. She is happy with her life but can see
that something is just not as exciting for the Baron
anymore. Then Nicola comes to live with them for the
summer. The Baron is to introduce her to the pleasures of
sex and he plans to have Cassandra assist in this
training/introduction. Cassandra is concerned as this is
how she came to live with the Baron 18 months ago, and then
she replaced his current companion.
Cassandra’s Chateau is a
story long on erotic scenes that test the boundaries; its
shortcomings are in the non-erotic parts of the story. I do
think that the fact that Cassandra is to train her successor
is also interesting, especially as she is not ready to
leave, as she had developed a love for the one man who has
told her she shouldn’t. Cassandra’s Chateau
was an interesting read but doesn’t make it into my top
ten Black Lace titles.
Note: This book is seriously not for
the under 18 crowd.
