Cassandra's Conflict am Book This book was recommended to me by Amazon because I'd bought To Seek a Master from them, which is by the same publisher. Now and then Amazon can draw your attention to a book you might not have ever noticed before otherwise, and it can work. I loved To Seek a Master, which is why I had high hopes for this one; I also knew to expect something pretty extreme from this publisher, and besides, the premise made me think it was the erotic, modern-day version of Jane Eyre: timid new governess Cassandra is hired to look after the two young children of a widower, Baron von Ritter, who has powerful charisma and some very extreme sexual tastes that often involve initiating shy young women into his games. Growing tired of his mistress's cruel sado-masochistic needs, the Baron turns Cassandra's initiation into a game that pits the unwitting woman against his mistress - only one will stay, but only he knows the rules.What could have been a mesmerising novel of gothic atmosphere and erotic seduction, was instead a flat story with highly unlikeable characters and an unconvincing seduction. The Baron's so-called charisma, upon which the entire premise rests, is never really in evidence - instead, he gave me the creeps, and how he treated his two little girls made me despise him from early on. Remove his power to drive women wild and make them fall in love with him, and the motivation is entirely gone. I was told these women love him, but I couldn't believe it. I saw no real evidence of it, or what it was about him that made them love him. I especially didn't like his sexual tastes and I wasn't impressed by his skill - he was all technique, detached and cold and boring. It didn't help that the writing also got too technical, and the descriptions repetitive.The seduction scenes lacked a necessary powerful ingredient to really make them work, instead of making the reader uncomfortable. By the time the baron decides to introduce Cassandra to the joys of enemas, I'd had enough. I'm sure there is a way to get a divine orgasm from an enema, but there's nothing sexy or erotic about it. It's all so clinical and messy and unpalatable. As is the focus on the belly and water-retention (not letting them pee and forcing them to drink more and more water as a kind of sexual torture until the final, orgasmic release) - I couldn't help thinking about how you can die if you don't pee, from the toxins that have been filtered from your blood having nowhere to go but back into your system. These characters think they're at the height of sexual discovery by defeating their boundaries and pushing themselves, but honestly, I couldn't help but feel they were missing the point.There is an audience for this book and others like it, as badly written as it is, but it's not for me. I prefer the quietly simmering sexual tension and subtle build-up of grumpy Mr Rochester to the Baron's "baby-faced" charm. Yuck..

Don't ask me how challenging that is, based on my history. Mostly, I am open minded. I have no trouble with what consenting adults do.

  3. This is my most recent erotica read, and I tried to take my time with it and really read the thing It s very engrossing and suspenseful, kind of stomach churning in a mostly good way but in addition to being devious and deviant in a delightful way, it s also sometimes randomly cruel, and the tone at times is a little odd Alleyn s sensibility, at least in this one, is very much infused with something of the tradition of Viennese perversity, sophisticated but sometimes mocking and cruel The plot c [...]


  4. Just absolutely horrible The characters are all flat They certainly get nowhere, growth wise The only actual change in Cassandra from beginning to end is that she s sorer and jaded The Baron he s charming He s magnetic Yeah right He came off the page as a cold, clinical, detached, cruel, roue puppeteer who makes everyone around him including his two very young daughters dance on strings for his entertainment.If this book had not included his daughters, I d have MAYBE given it 2 stars For what i [...]


  5. CASSANDRA S CONFLICT is without a doubt the most erotically enticing story I have ever had the pleasure to read I was transported to a phenomenal world of kinky bedroom play and a home filled with both good and evil The characters were delightfully insane I hated Katya she was rude, cruel and manipulative a perfect villainess I could entirely empathize with Cassandra s feelings for Dieter She comes from a broken marriage where she was made to believe that she was frigid In Dieter s arms, she fin [...]


  6. Okay, this book is BDSM to an extreme, so be forewarned, but that s not why it got 2 stars from me The actual sex and BDSM was done fairly well, even if it wasn t super steamy hot for me My problem was in the characters I was rooting for the girl I was supposed to and hating the girl I was supposed to, but I felt no character progression through the story The baron was a total joke and there was NO insight into his desire for the scene, his thought process, nothing Also, the main heroine was und [...]


  7. having read the 2nd book first Cassandra s chateau I knew how it was going to end, but this book is the journey that leads her to become that person none of the sex scenes were particularly shocking, and there is a large variety of those, but this book was definitely the first time I ve read of a snake being used as a sex toy which is right near the end of the book the snake is fine afterwards, relatively unharmed, but if it were real life, it s still kinda wrong if you re looking for the male f [...]


  8. Black Lace Well, lots of strong reactions in the reviews, and I think, without the overload of stars, I agree with a lot of Violethue s comments Having read loads of Black Lace I certainly wouldn t rank this as being towards the bottom, but the characters are very strong and weird, and I understand some of the negative reactions I like the Fellini analogy, and quite enjoyed parts of it while distancing myself from some of the over the top scenes A snake you ve got to be joking
