    One thought on “Cassandra's Conflict”

    1. This book was recommended to me by because I'd bought To Seek a Master from them, which is by the same publisher. Now and then can draw your attention to a book you might not have ever noticed before otherwise, and it can work. I loved To Seek a Master, which is why I had high hopes for this one; I also knew to expect something pretty extreme from this publisher, and besides, the premise made me think it was the erotic, modern-day version of Jane Eyre: timid new governess Cassandra is hired to [...]

    2. I need to add called Books I Hated. I try to be all big and bad and groovy about BDSM. I have a child (an adult) who is a Dom. Don't ask me how challenging that is, based on my history. Mostly, I am open minded. I have no trouble with what consenting adults do. But I hate reading poorly written, mean spirited books on this subject. There is more to be said. I'll have to write a short rant later.

    3. This is my most recent erotica read, and I tried to take my time with it and really read the thing! It's very engrossing and suspenseful, kind of stomach-churning in a (mostly) good way; but in addition to being devious and deviant in a delightful way, it's also sometimes randomly cruel, and the tone at times is a little odd. Alleyn's sensibility, at least in this one, is very much infused with something of the tradition of Viennese perversity, sophisticated but sometimes mocking and cruel. The [...]

    4. Just absolutely horrible. The characters are all flat. They certainly get nowhere, growth-wise. The only actual change in Cassandra from beginning to end is that she's sorer and more jaded. The Baron - he's charming? He's magnetic? Yeah right. He came off the page as a cold, clinical, detached, cruel, roue puppeteer who makes everyone around him - including his two very young daughters - dance on strings for his entertainment.If this book had not included his daughters, I'd have -MAYBE- given it [...]

    5. CASSANDRA'S CONFLICT is without a doubt the most erotically enticing story I have ever had the pleasure to read. I was transported to a phenomenal world of kinky bedroom play and a home filled with both good and evil. The characters were delightfully insane. I hated Katya—she was rude, cruel and manipulative—a perfect villainess. I could entirely empathize with Cassandra's feelings for Dieter. She comes from a broken marriage where she was made to believe that she was frigid. In Dieter's arm [...]

    6. Okay, this book is BDSM to an extreme, so be forewarned, but that's not why it got 2 stars from me. The actual sex and BDSM was done fairly well, even if it wasn't super steamy hot for me. My problem was in the characters. I was rooting for the girl I was supposed to and hating the girl I was supposed to, but I felt no character progression through the story. The baron was a total joke and there was NO insight into his desire for the scene, his thought process, nothing. Also, the main heroine wa [...]

    7. having read the 2nd book first (Cassandra's chateau) I knew how it was going to end, but this book is the journey that leads her to become that person. none of the sex scenes were particularly shocking, and there is a large variety of those, but this book was definitely the first time I've read of a snake being used as a sex toy. (which is right near the end of the book. the snake is fine afterwards, relatively unharmed, but if it were real-life, it's still kinda wrong) if you're looking for the [...]

    8. Black Lace Well, lots of strong reactions in the reviews, and I think, without the overload of stars, I agree with a lot of Violethue's comments. Having read loads of Black Lace I certainly wouldn't rank this as being towards the bottom, but the characters are very strong and weird, and I understand some of the negative reactions. I like the Fellini analogy, and quite enjoyed parts of it while distancing myself from some of the over-the-top scenes. A snake?? you've got to be joking
