Little Brides- Victorian Chronicles Book Two – Allison West

Eager young Clara is looking forward to her arranged marriage. She has been waiting all her life for the day when she will meet her husband. Her father has spent many months searching for the man worthy of his daughter’s hand.

Clara learns that her future husband, Francis, requires the young woman to undergo a medical examination to ensure that she has remained pure and that she is as intact as her reputation. Clara has never felt more disgraced as she is forced to bare all of herself to the doctor, where she undergoes far more than she ever anticipated. Silently, she swears to herself that she will move past the humiliation and never speak of what happened with the physician.

When Francis pays a visit to Clara’s father to propose additional terms to the marriage, wanting to bring along one of her maids so he will have a nanny in the house for Clara, the young bride-to-be is shocked to realize that he was the man giving her an examination. Was he really a doctor, or was he playing the part to ruin her reputation?

Little Brides is the second book in the Victorian Chronicles. It can be read as a stand-alone story but it does follow the first book in the series: A Proper Punishment.

A Proper Punishment

Victorian Chronicles Book One

By Allison West

She’s stolen gold… will she steal his heart? Lena Mae has been turning down the advances of men and potential suitors for marriage. She has not met a man worthy of her attention or her hand. Looking for adventure and learning of the route between England and Paris where gold is hauled and transported, Lena is determined to steal enough gold bars to live alone and never need to consider the advances of another man.

William Mason is responsible for guarding the train and the gold bars buried inside the safes. He has always been a man of the law. When he discovers that the safe transporting the gold has been broken in to and there are thieves on the train, he enlists the help of the young Lena Mae, who has caught his attention. Traveling alone with a story to tell, she appears to be the most honest person and the one least likely to be involved, given her dainty size.

His assumptions are wrong. Learning of her betrayal, he must decide how to enforce his rule and whether she should be disciplined – or arrested and handed over to the authorities for her crimes.

DISCLAIMER: This book contains elements of age-play, power exchange, discipline, anal play, and graphic sexual content. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

Excerpt 1

“Are you excited for the wedding?” her mother asked, watching her daughter as she ate. 

Clara nodded and took a bite of her roll, pleased that the conversation was upbeat and not dampening her mood. She had not been thrilled to be forced to meet with the doctor and had been nervous that her family might discover what had occurred while she was under his care. 

“I am, Mother,” Clara said. “I wish I could meet my suitor before the wedding, but I know you have told me that it is not possible.” She had begged her mother to let her pay him a visit, even if it was in secret. She knew nothing of him, not even a hint of his profession so that she might see him at work. 

“I assure you Mr. Francis is a good man,” her father said. His voice insistent that they drop this very subject. “You do not need to worry about your marriage or the family you will be marrying into. He will be able to take care of you, Clara. That is what every woman dreams of.” 

Clara sighed and placed her half-eaten bread on the plate. She reached for her water, having a sip, wishing it were wine. Her parents had given her a taste every so often, but had assured her that it was only given on special occasions and that too much would ruin her reputation and her chance at marrying a proper young man. 

“I do not worry about his finances, Father, only his heart. Will he love me?” She had not spoken her concerns quite so freely before. She had gone along with their plans to choose a husband for her and marry him just after her twenty-first birthday. They had insisted on giving her a proper education and waiting to offer her hand. 

“I am sure with time that he will grow to love you, Clara.” Her father smiled politely and excused himself from the table, his meal finished. 

Clara had only just begun eating, taking her time as she nibbled at her food and picked at her bread. She was hungry but distracted. She wanted to know that her husband would love her and take care of her. The doctor had been kind and though she had not known him very well, he had paid her far more attention than any other man she had met before. Would her husband be interested in her body as the doctor had been? She knew that she would have to consummate the marriage, that was not the act in question, only she wished to know whether he would love her in doing so, touching and pleasing her.
