The year is 1742. Margot is a young, convent raised bride. At eighteen, she is taken to her betrothed husband's home. But right from the start, things are not as she had expected them to be. First, the companion hired to take her to her husband seems a lot more like a governess - a very strict one. And when she arrives at her husband's home, she is instructed to call him... Papa.

Margot soon learns that she is to occupy a sort of shadowy world. She is a bride... in every sense of the word, but she is also a little girl in the nursery, subject to the strictest of discipline and ministrations from both Papa and Miss Della. The hairbrush, the cane, even dreadful bottom punishments are all part of her new world.

Trouble arrives, too, in the form of Papa's wicked sister, Celia, who does her best to get poor Margot in serious trouble - and succeeds. At first Celia's mischief is cruel, but not dangerous, but then, thwarted, she steps over the line, and Margot is in real danger

Very cruel but at the same time very loving. Non-consensual age play and harsh punishments. If that's you're kind of thing it's very, very hot!!

The historical age-play stories really intrigue me since the women do not have a choice. They are thrust into this kind of relationship even if they do not want it. In the beginning of this story, the treatment of Margot is downright harsh, later, you see how both Ms. Delle and Thomas really care for specially when she gets sick. The story never really explains why her sister-in-law is such a bitch... It would have helped the story a lot if that was explained.

I really wanted to like this book, and there are areas I did like, but I hated how Margot was beaten so harshly over every little thing. I mean, getting beaten for not being able to walk perfectly with a book on your head? And then her father figure not believing her over a servant and so she got punished harshly for it and then got a demerit added to her weekly punishment as well. Thank goodness he makes up for it a bit in the end or I would have walked away from this book very upset with him. If you like punishments harsh, and well above what is deserved, this would be the book for you. Sadly, not what I expected from this author.

If you can bend your mind outside of reality, this is an amazing book. In reality though, I do not think any person alive could handle the level of punishments that were dished out on Margot. It even bothered me when her husband, who was supposed to love her, actually broke the skin during one of her punishments. Though, the last few scenes where he takes her side, when he cares for her, and does all he can to protect her, he finally won me over. There is a scene where he gets her to fake a spanking, and it is entirely adorable. Miss Della, the nanny, even came to be a character I could love. The sister Celia though, oh, pure, pure evil.

I really loved this story, even though the punishments were really hard. Unfortunately, just when the relationship between DeAkeny, and Celia seems to get on track, the story ends. I wish there would have been a bit more so that the punishments could be seen in a more loving light.

The story is really well written, it makes you feel the emotions of the protagonist, but the character of Celia remains incomprehensible.

I like this book, but i felt the female character should of had a bit more justification on her side. she does get thrown in a different environment, which I think more adapting and understanding on her side was deserved.

While the punishments in this book are harsh enough to perhaps strain credibility, the story is well-done. It's difficult to believe that someone could be beaten that harshly that frequently (nine times within the first three days, for example) and not suffer long-lasting damage. But I quibble. After all, it is fantasy and quite lovely fantasy at that. The attention to detail is wonderful, and the loving (if harsh) relationship is shown to develop at a believable pace. I enjoyed this story and will look for more by the same author.

This story was really good for a historical ageplay theme. It had a wonderful premis of a titled gentleman putting his bride back in the nursery with her nurse! Of course, this nurse is much more demanding and quite anxious to use some hideous punishment on the poor girl! Just when you think the husband is some unfeeling brute he has the maids punished for laughing at his wife when they see her being treated as a child! This makes it so much more---he tries to truly care for her, and protect her while they live in the way he has chosen.

This is a shorter age play story than some about a bride who was covenant raised under very strict discipline. Then she goes to her husbands house and not only is the discipline even stricter she is treated like a little girl by her Papa and Miss Della and has none of the rights the Lady of the house rightly should have. There are some very harsh punishments but you do see the loving relationship develop between the characters which makes this a really good story.

A harsher intense side of age play. Ms. Phelps creates a historical piece with a taboo niche fetish. This was a decent read and there are so very few age play books. Not for the faint of heart.

I enjoyed this story. It was a very entertaining read. It was full of the qualities that age-play enthusiasts look for. I felt it was as much of a love story as an age-play story.

I found this a gripping story and read it straight through. Margot has turned 18 and thinks she is about to enter the world of adults with her husband. She looks forward to leaving behind the harsh punishment of the sisters in the school she grew up. But when Miss Della arrives to escort her to her new home she begins to realize that things are not what she expected. Margot is left confused by what role she is to play and the manipulation of her SIL Celia only complicate and confuse matters for poor Margot. It seems that just as Margot is settling in Celia puts things into play that turn from mean to dangerous.

Early in the story I almost felt as confused as Margot as to what the true intentions and feelings of both her husband Thomas and her nanny Miss Della are toward Margot. But as the story progress you get a sense that these people truly do care for Margot. And while we might find it disturbing in some ways compared to how we think of marriage and kink choices now days wives really were their husbands property and some were treated much worse. Truly you come to feel that despite the oddity of treating a wife as a child Thomas and to some extent Miss Della are the only people who have ever truly cared for Margot.

I empathised with the charactors, and couldn't wait to read the next chapter. The plot line got a bit lost in the middle, but the detail made up for it. I like a firm man in my stories, but this was a bit harsh for me in a few places.

Victorian age play at its best. Harsh discipline and humiliation. Very hot! Darla Phelps write excellent discipline scenes as usual. Very detailed. I love this book and re-read it often.
