00:00 / 38:40

It’s all over this week! We reach the conclusion of our novel and there is only one piece of business that needs to be taken care of: our hero Raul, now King Saber, needs to get Victoria back. She left because he didn’t profess his love to her. What an idiot! Serves him for being the broodish unavailable type.

Of course, our hero does find her and seriously professes his love in a grand gesture, but do they go to bone town once more for good ol’ sake? Victoria is certainly thinking it. You’ll have to have a listen to find out.

The revolution is here. The revolution is here! It’s bloody! There are plenty of guts opened up and countless warriors die on both sides … not!

It’s actually very quick and dealt with within 2 chapters. I won’t ruin it for you but it’s a bit of a letdown. Sure, there is some fighting but then bam, our prince is a king. So much for a revolution.

There is a real turn of events though. A character from the past shows up and creates a divide betwixt our two lovers. Geez! So maybe the real revolution is finally securing the love of Victoria?

Anyways, without giving away too much, enjoy this week’s reading and commentary.

I didn’t see this week’s action coming. The men and women are in the fields practising their skills, prepping for the revolution while a few of them stay back in the castle cleaning up, Victoria being on of the later. Then, plot twist! While they are up in the attic, they find a big ol’ chest of coins. Whose could they be?

A traitor! A turncoat! I won’t spoil it but it’s someone close to the family. (Gasp)

This family member sold them out of course and hence, the coins. This basically means it’s wartime … now! Revolution is upon us. Well, it is upon us next week but, revolution is upon us!

Anything good in life seems to be worth waiting for and we’re being rewarded because we have mostly sexy times in this week’s readings. After the weird giving back / kinda wedding ceremony from last week, we start this episode with the final tradition where the guy (Raul) chases down the girl (Victoria) through the woods. Of course, when he gets her, they get down to it up against a large boulder. Boom.

Then they head off further into the forest and they climb a tree ending up at a platform Raul and his cousin Danel built as children and they make a night of it. More sexy time ensues. Yes! Here’s the thing, they are sleeping on a bed of pine needles which I imagine would suck and what about mosquitoes? Jus sayin’.

The whole gang heads back to the castle and guess who’s there waiting for them? The baddies. Sounds like the final screw for a revolution in the next few weeks!

This week we still find ourselves in the camp of Danel, Raul’s cousin. Turns out he’s a real dog and he’s been banging a bunch of women. Not surprised though … he is the leader of his tribe.

Also, turns out because Danel “stole” Victoria she now belongs to him and they now have to have a “handing over” ceremony before Victoria and Raul peace out back home. To me it feels more like a wedding ceremony more than anything else … just saying.

A couple bottoms were smacked, but that’s about the extent of the action this week.

I think we’ve been spoiled. There’s been so much steamy action in the past few weeks that I got swept up in the romance and tried to set to mood to make more of it. Unfortunately, the book had something else in mind.

This week was all plot development. Our heroine was out for a walk last week and was captured. Turns out she was captured by her lover’s cousin. This cousin, of course, has the worst of intentions but Victoria is able to turn it all around and create a positive. Why am I not surprised?

Our cup runneth over. The sexy times continued this week. The sexy times were so good that we finally got penetration. That’s right … p went into the v. Before that though, there was plenty of body massages with Lavender oils. Our hero is a very responsible man though. He whipped out one of his lambskin condoms, after all, he has a revolution to win and doesn’t have time to raise little shit heads.

Of course, everyone in the castle instantly found out that they were bumping uglies but it actually worked in Victoria’s favour, they now see her as the woman of the house. Yay.

In the final chapter, Victoria decides to go for a little walk, the first time since being in the castle, and she runs into a scary stranger. Cliffhanger!

It seems the sexy times this week just keep on rolling from last week. Before we get into that though, we started the reading this week with the savages in castle starting to warm up to Miss Cardiff and her etiquette classes. They warm up to the classes but also make it known “We know you’re bumpin’ uglies with our prince here.”

Then, the last two chapters are spent in their chambers. Victoria is having a bath, Raul comes home and, well, the suds are bubbled, suds are washed off and bodies are towelled down. Then, to bed, we go. The final chapter in this week’s reading does end with a bit of a tease again.

Have a listen and enjoy.

This week starts off innocent enough … life in the castle. Our heroine, Victoria, now in charge of teaching etiquette, is struggling to get the respect and attention of her fellow castle mates. Then, one night, our hero Raul comes home drunk as a skunk and boy do things go from 0 – 100 REAL

Folks, we got what we wanted … finally! We got some action this week! That’s right, some steamy, hot action between our hero Raul and our heroine Victoria.

This week’s reading begins with the entire castle of people having dinner together. They’re drinking, talking revolution and Victoria begins to let loose a little. By the end of dinner, she’s tired and so Mr Suave takes her up to their chambers. Did I mention that he decided they were gonna be sleeping in the same room?! … hmmm.

Fast forward and they’re making out again, just like 3 years ago when they first met. That took a while, jeez! However, this time it is gentle and caring. Gushy, romantic type smooching.

Seems our cold, prudish spinster is warming up to our prince. Wait, this is Stockholm Syndrom. ummm …
