Lady Marina Corbett-Wynne and her husband, Lord James, are the owners of Leyton Hall. While her husband experiments with his submissive nature using the female grooms of the stable, she is busy trying to keep herself happy running the household.
Annabel Moss is an interior designer with a new job on the horizon. Her famous boss has deemed her qualified to create a masterpiece makeover at the mansion. What she does not realize is that once she steps over the threshold, Annabel’s life will never be the same.
Tania and Crispian, who live at the mansion, explore each other in every carnal pleasure imaginable. Soon Annabel is joining them for delightfully nighttime activities full of bondage and threesomes. When Marina meets their neighbor, Matthew Stevens she soon finds herself pulled into her own sensual gratifications that bring out the sensual woman she had thought was gone.
Ms. Alleyn tells the tale of many different characters with their own needs, and not just the carnal ones either. Dark Obsession is the story of how Marina, Annabel, James, Tania, Crispian, and Matthew’s lives are changed forever within the walls of Leyton Hall. Marina is this very demure woman who knows that her husband has some unusual tastes when it comes to his own sexual releases and assumes that she will be celibate the rest of her life. Annabel has come to redecorate the mansion and nothing more, but finds herself involved with both Tania and Crispian and the obsession they have for each other. This dark tale was so riveting that I could not put the book down and you as a reader will find yourself mesmerized with these enticing and alluring characters from the beginning until the end.
Caution: This tale contains BDSM, anal play, anal sex, multiple partners, scenes of pretend forced sex, sexual games, f/f scene, voyeurism, and is a red hot romance!
