Lillianne Draper has fled the clutches of her drunken husband, Ewan, and returned to the safety of her family farm. But her tormentor, Dr Phillip Samms, needs Lillianne to endorse his machine for curing female hysteria – more than that, he needs to see her strapped in his restraining chair, helpless and at his mercy once more. Can Lillianne free herself for once and for all, and does a lasting love wait for her somewhere beyond the walls of Draper Estate? 

Dear Mrs Draper,

I don’t often put quill to paper to write missives of a more personal nature so you will hopefully forgive me if my manner is stilted. I am writing to beseech you to return to Draper Estates.

I will admit that at first I was not altogether convinced that my lord’s choice in you for his bride was the most astute one. I want to take this opportunity to apologise to you if I was not entirely welcoming when you arrived. I consider part of my responsibility to his lordship to look out for characters whose motives may not be in his best interest. The truth is that I did not know enough about you and, perhaps sadly, I am a man who always anticipates the worst in people. However, it is a trait that has done me well in my life since I am so often justified.

There are two exceptions, my lady, and I will tell them to you now. They are your husband, my lord and master, Ewan Draper, and you. I say when I’ve been wrong.

I know he is not perfect. Who amongst us is? He is a man who is larger than life; he has big dreams, big ideas, big desires. In the past, these attributes have created some minor issues for him, and yes, perhaps he has not always conducted himself with the utmost decorum, but more so they are responsible for his successes. Sometimes one must accept certain flaws in a loved one and forgive him knowing the whole person you can see him to be.

I am not a person who puts great stock in things like romance or matters of the heart. I usually find these notions to be the stuff of novels and other fancies. But in the interest of performing my duties to the fullest, I cannot ignore his lordship’s distress at your departure and continued absence. He is a broken man, my lady. A shadow of his former self. If you have any reciprocal feelings of fondness in your heart for him, I implore you to at least consider returning to your place here at Draper Estate.

I can assure you that you will have a most humble and willing servant in me.

Yours in earnest,


James set down his quill. He read the letter over twice then folded it in half, closed his eyes, and let out a heavy sigh. Reluctantly thinking back to his actions from two nights ago, he squeezed his eyes shut, trying to block out the shame over how he’d behaved. He rubbed his temples hard, opened his eyes, and perused the letter a final time before sealing it and ringing for the footman. If Lillianne would come back, now that Phillip and Celeste were out of the picture, it was possible that all could be as it should at Draper Estates. Then hopefully they could put a period on the end of this chapter and he and his lordship would never have to think about what had happened last night.

Kyoko Church

Kyoko Church discovered the power of the written erotic word when she was 16 years old and penned a very explicit missive to her boyfriend detailing all the naughty things she wanted to do to him. When he received it, boyfriend was impressed. When he found it, father was not. For the next 18 years she hid her naughty thoughts in shame until she found a community where they were once again appreciated for the well-imagined smut they are. Her short stories have been published in anthologies by Black Lace, Xcite Books, Mischief Books and soon with Sweetmeats Press. Book One, Nymphomania, and Book Two, Sapphic Secrets, in her Draper Estate Trilogy were published by Xcite in 2012. For Her Pleasure, a femdom novella,was published by HarperCollins Mischief Books in February 2013.

A Canuck by birth, she has recently made Australia her home. She is currently learning to drive on the left and say G’day convincingly.
