    Lord Alton Claimed More Than Her Innocence!!, December 13, 2015

    *** I was graciously provided an ARC copy by the author. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. ***

    Claiming Her Innocence is another well written masterpiece from Ava Sinclair whose books I just can’t get enough of. I love this type of erotica as well as her age play written under the name of Elsa Black. Once again, my emotions were all over the place as I felt sympathy for Lady Penelope in the beginning as she struggled to balance her religious convictions with the reality of what was happening to her. But further on into the book I was laughing with her, getting mad with her, etc. I love it when a story takes me on an emotional journey because I find myself losing track of time and getting lost in the world created by the author!

    That is what makes Ava’s books so exciting to read, Penelope is so young, naive, and because women didn’t have any rights back then, she is basically at the mercy of what her father decides is best for her which in this case is marriage to Lord Alton Westcott. Penelope thinks her idea of acting disobedient to whatever Alton wants will get her sent back to the convent where she belongs, but unfortunately this behavior only makes Alton desire her more. Poor Penelope, she doesn’t have a clue but soon learns under his tutelage that Lord Alton is a very dominant man and that her childish behavior appeals to certain sexual needs of his like a moth to a flame. The more she misbehaves, the more Alton is determined to keep and discipline Penelope until she learns what is required of her to become his proper wife!

    Even though you might think some of his methods may be a little heavy handed or a tad sneaky at times, Alton really does care for Penelope; he can be patient when its needed and he does explain certain things to her. Once again, we are gifted with a neat little twist to the plot courtesy of Penelope’s maid Betsy and I really enjoyed their conversations together…very entertaining!! We also have a nasty ex who shows up and creates some serious turmoil for Alton to deal with and other secondary characters round out the cast of this great book.

    If you love a great story with plot twists, a lot of HOT, STEAMY, SEX, a dominant but caring alpha male, and a young woman exploring her sexuality for the first time and finding pleasure in submission, then I highly recommend reading Claiming Her Innocence!!

    I really enjoyed this, as usual of Ava Sinclair’s books.

    Without giving away the plot, one of the things I really enjoyed was a slight twist on a trope that the author frequently uses in her books–which involves the hiring of a governess or nanny. I did not expect it to go the way that it did, and it made sense for it to have gone that way. I really enjoyed it because it shows, obviously, that not all relationships are the same, and we all need different things. But I really didn’t expect it! It was a lovely twist.

    Second thing, with churlish glee, was the part about how Lady Penelope was deeply religious and sheltered and longed to go back to what she knew. I can identify with this greatly, as I am transitioning from child to adult (and ugh, adulting is HARD and I’m not even properly doing it yet), so I really felt Lady Penelope’s struggle and just *got* how she was feeling. And then there’s of course the religious shame to it all—which makes for very hot sex scenes and inner turmoils. As a side note, I just never, ever understood why religions (in this case, the Christian variety) were so against masturbation, etc. I’m just sayin’–if I wanted my kid to stay “pure” until marriage, I’d give them a vibrator/fleshlight for their 18th birthday. Just something random that popped in my head while reading, lol.

    Lastly–I LOVED the relationship and “hope” that Lady Penelope had with her lady’s maid, Betsy. As I was reading, I was really really hoping that Betsy would get her happy ending (plus she was an awesome lesson/character in how slut shaming is done by men, who have no problems partaking in what they have to offer, but are too good for them to be in a real relationship/marry them)…….

    Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. I almost enjoy the female friendships more, but honestly. I come for the sex scenes, and everything else is the gravy that I smother my fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, biscuits, and corn in. Yes, I was raised by a Southern Mama.

    Another wonderful AP story from this author! I really enjoyed it. I felt bad for Lady Penelope at the beginning until I realized the convent wasn’t her first choice for her life. Her arranged marriage is certainly a blessing in disguise. Fun read. I received this book from Stormy Night Publications as an Advanced Reader Copy.
