In this, the third book of the best-selling Hunter’s Ridge series, twin sisters, Louisa and Lucy, are looking forward to reuniting after several months apart. Though they correspond regularly, letters are nothing compared to being together, sharing their lives, and whispering their secrets to one another.
Anticipation has caused both to be naughtier than usual—but their husbands, who are also very strict Papas, have no hesitation in reminding them what happens when their Little brides test the rules.
After a very educational evening visit to Miss Eleanor Summers' school, Louisa’s eyes are opened to what might be if she continues her bratty ways—and her attitude is quickly adjusted. Lord Edward Wintercrest has not only taken possession of an intriguing box from Eleanor to share with his best friend and Lucy’s Papa, Lord Lucas Huntington, he has also ensured that the long carriage ride to Hunter’s Ridge will offer his precious little lady comfort and distraction from boredom.
Lucas’ family is excited about the upcoming visit as they prepare for the holidays and the final ball of the season. And Lord Stefan Northbridge is not one to sit idly aside when there is a chance to do a bit of matchmaking. Will Franny be able to trust another suitor after her narrow escape from the clutches of Lord Drakemore?
Is Ettie ready to put away her childhood toys as she enters the grown-up world, or is she looking for a man far more like her brother than Lucas realizes?
Only a few things are certain: no matter what the future holds for the others at Hunter’s Ridge, both Lucy and Louisa will continue to be cherished and coddled by their husbands—and their Papas will always be there to remind them of their vows to submit. With their unwavering love for these precious women, and unfaltering attention to their backsides whenever they step out of line, this reunion exceeds both sisters' expectations.
Once again, Maggie Ryan, the queen of Victorian ageplay erotica, combines love, friendship, humor, and delicious scenes of discipline and lust to tell a story that is as heartwarming as it is sexy.
"You're going to love meeting Emmie, Louisa," Ettie said, as she slipped into her chair. "I've been waiting to go to their house for months. You know, her Papa let us choose a kitten for her birthday! He is so cute, I can't wait to see how much he's grown."
"I'm looking forward to meeting both Emmie and Socrates. I feel as if I know them already, as Lucy writes about them quite often. Do you know who else is attending?"
Ettie looked a bit flustered at the question. "I don't know. Bea, do you?"
Bea looked up from her bowl of soup. "It isn't necessary to share a guest list, Ettie. I'm sure that whomever Lord Northbridge has invited will be quite pleasant."
Ettie shrugged. "Well, I suppose, but I wanted to play with Emmie and not just eat dinner."
Franny gave her sister a look. "You need to remember to be on your best behavior. It's a formal dinner party and not like the ones they shared with us when they visited."
"I just hope it isn't boring."
The others laughed, and Lucy assured her that she doubted any time spent with Emmie would be boring. Her assurance seemed to settle the question as they finished their luncheon.
Molly sent Franny and Ettie upstairs for their naps and when Ettie pouted, stating that she wasn't tired and wanted to work on the jigsaw puzzle, Molly shook her head.
The men were gone, Lucas having taken Edward into town to meet another prospective business partner, and Frank was somewhere on the estate. "Your brother's absence leaves me in charge, young lady. Are you trying to see if I'll ignore your naughtiness? Whining little girls lose the privilege of attending parties; boring or not."
Ettie shook her head, her eyes widening, and Lucy wondered if they did so because she hadn't given a thought to being spanked by Nanny Molly, or if she was suddenly terrified that her pouting had just caused her to lose the invitation.
"No, Nanny Molly. I'll take a nap."
"I thought you might," Molly said with a smile. "I'll be in to check on you in a moment. I suggest you are snuggled in your bed by then."
