The House on Silk Street... Who knows what goes on behind its doors?

In Regency England, needs are met somehow...

Silver Silk Ties

Araminta knew what she wanted, and being left on her wedding night was not it. Finding her husband in the notorious house on Silk Street, she hoped her luck had changed. Perhaps this would not be the marriage of convenience she feared. If only she could persuade him that she was indeed the sub he needed.

Meeting his new wife at the one place all deep dark desires could be satisfied, Felton wondered if he had been mistaken? Was this a marriage of mutual passion and ideals? Would she truly obey? There was only one way to find out, test her submission.


A Shimmer Of Silk

Deborah may not know the full truth of her childhood, but she knows she needs to find her soul.
During one of her performances at Silk Street, she attracts the attention of Oliver, Lord Craster. Known for his extreme tastes, he sensed a kindred soul in Deborah.
Persuading her that their needs mesh proves a challenge, even to a man of his experience.
Will Oliver be the man she needs to unlock her secrets? Or will his dominance scare her too much to even try?

Are the nightmares simply too strong?

Here's how...


  1. Love your covers, sweetie! I would be a mistress.... Don't they have more fun? As for being innovative... Hmm. I think you'd have to see what is lying around the stables or even against the stable door?!

  2. Thats though. I dont like that wife were kinda of like furniture and didnt have any rights over her possessions because all goes for husband. Those were hard for wifes times. But mistresses have sometimes no better I think. Yes, they have more freedom but they also was easily abondonet because they got old or protector got borred with her. So there is good and bad on both sides. Well at least this is how I see. But I also think some wife get very lucky when they got understanding and who treated them like person and not like I said before furniture. So to chose to whom to be is hard.
    And how they looked at dom in those times...I think they saw them twisted and sick. And dont have understanding of them. Meaning of its personal matter and no ones else.

  3. I think I would be a wife and show him that I can be just as fun as a mistress. Just because we are married does not mean you could not be a dom. I know I would be one of the one people of that time with a forward thinking and as far as my hubby being a Dom... Heck Yes we would if the find things of that time or learn to make them our

  4. some great answers so far. Let's keep them coming...

  5. Tough questions. I.m thinking I would probably be a wife but in the bedroom I would be his mistress to let him know that I'm all the woman he needs. As for my Dom husband we would probably use the horses saddle as a spanking bench in the barn. lavidabrisco(at)yahoo(dot)com

  6. tough question. i honestly would LIKE to be a wife outside the bedroom and a mistress IN the bedroom

  7. I would propose to be both. A wife when needed for society sake and the mistress in the bedroom. That way I would be treated good on both accounts. As for the other maybe he can use my silk pantyhose that I would have worn.

  8. I would rather be the mistress. I think life would be a lot less stressful if I wasn't having to deal with society. As for being a dom, there would be plenty from things out in the stable and had to be plenty laying around in the kitchen as well that could be used.

  9. You feed my love of Regency with a heavy dose of wonderful sensuality.

  10. I would much rather be a wife who acted like a mistress in bed. I still would want to be respected by society as a wife but also let my husband know that I would be as adventurous as a mistress.
    As for innovation for a Dom: Wood carved plugs, riding crops ( horses were the main source of transport so these would be plentiful) and riding saddles for spanking benches ( for the same reason given earlier)..

  11. That's a tough question. I can see the appeal of the mistress back on those days, but I guess I would be a wife. I have kids and I always think what is the best for them first, and being the mistress kids is never an easy path. What could a Dom do? Oh, be resourceful. That's always wooden spoon, wood chairs, several devices that could be used.
    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  12. Like the song No Pain, No Gain says.. I would be a lady in the streets, but a freak in the sheets. So that of course means that I would be a wife, but hopefully mistress like in the bedroom.
    As for an inventive Dom, there is always a riding crop for spankings, cravats for tying someone up or to use as a blindfold.

  13. I would be the perfect wife following the rules of society, but would be a wild child behind closed doors. They wore cravats back then and usually carried a walking stick or a riding crop.

  14. Wife, there's a bit more security. A dom would probably have a group of friends interested in the same lifestyle and they would probably share ideas and tips as well as new devices.

  15. While being a wife offers stability, I think I'd prefer to be a mistress. You get the goods (and to have more fun) without being tied down and obedient to a man. And I think a Dom would be innovative in those times because unlike today, BDSM was not something you talked about, and definitely not very widespread. Proper women wouldn't dream of reading something like 50 Shades, and I bet most men wouldn't have heard about it either, outside of clubs or salons such as the house on Silk Street.


  16. After careful consideration, I would choose wife. I like the security, prestige and legitimate family I could have. I would hope I could be everything my husband desires in and out of the bedroom, but if not and he takes on a mistress? Well I guess I'll have to take on a lover as well. A Dom who knows how to tie and untie my corsets just right for maximum pleasure!

  17. i would want to be both, but the thinking of that time was different. Any woman that "behaved" otherwise wasn't considered a proper lady. I would hate to be a wife and get wild in the bedroom, only to have my husband shame me. They treated their mistresses better than their wives.

  18. I'd be the wife,.... the kind of wife where he'd not need to go to anyone else because i'd satisfy him in all the ways he needs. My dom hubby & I could def have some fun in the stables with some crops. ;)

    Take care & I hope you have a great day! =)

  19. Great question. I think the mistress has better good sex so I'd go with that!

  20. If you lived in Regency times, what would you rather be, and why? Wife,or Mistress
    A Wife: I could provide enough that my husband would stay (not all husband's strayed) faithful.
    And how would a Dom be innovative in those times...
    Those heavy chairs and some silk cravats, four poster beds and window sashes, heavy dresses w/ no undergarments...

  21. I'd definitely be a wife.....but a totally naughty wife that would keep my husband too satisfied and tired to need a mistress. As far as innovation...cravats, ribbons, corsets...those wonderful heavy solid wood four poster beds.....there were canes and crops back then...and there's ALWAYS fresh ginger to keep things exciting in public!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
