A very steamy, erotic historical romance

Marriage Training is the story of Gabriel, Earl of Cranborne, and the impoverished Vivian. Gabriel is envious of his friend’s submissive but sexually enlightened wife-to-be. At their wedding he spots Vivian and is instantly entranced by her submissive demeanour and beautiful countenance. 

A few months later Vivian is attending the exclusive Mrs. Cunningham’s Finishing School, where she is learning how to be the perfect debutante and wife. On her 18th birthday she discovers that her place there has been sponsored by Gabriel, and what’s more they are betrothed to be married. Not only that but she is to embark on some ‘special’ training, where she will learn of the very specific requirements the Earl has for his bride.

What follows is a very erotic story involving a LOT of punishment scenes as well as some BDSM and domestic discipline scenes, many of which involve an FF element. These were incredibly hot and well written, none of them left a sour taste or felt crude. They did occasionally feel a tad repetitive, I’m not sure we needed quite as many as we had. It did make sections of the book drag a little for me. However if you love lots of steamy sexy times that won’t be an issue for you!

I loved the scenes between Gabriel and Vivian, particularly the dinner and ‘PG’ scenes. This was when we really got to see the relationship between them develop, where their attraction and love grew. These scenes were what convinced me of their connection, and what also made me fall in love with them both. This is where I felt I really learnt about them as people too.

This was a much steamier and erotic read than the authors previous historical work, though it was much more consensual than similar stories from the ‘Victorian Training’ trope. The writing is high quality, the plot engaging and the characters very likeable, making this a very enjoyable book to read.


Set in Victorian England, this erotic BDSM novel features a courtship between a young woman and a dashing rake.

Gabriel, Earl of Cranborne, is in need of a wife–preferably a sweet, submissive, well-trained wife who could run his household during the day and obey him in the bedroom at night. When he meets Miss Vivian Stafford at a friend’s wedding, he finds himself drawn in by the exact traits he was looking for in his own wife and immediately moves to make her his own. Once the betrothal papers are signed, he arranges for her to attend Mrs. Cunningham’s Finishing School. This very special school will prepare her to be the wife of an Earl . . . and also prepare for her the very specific demands and discipline she’ll receive from her new husband at night.
