Mary-Ann Everdene, a maid at Long Livery Hall, loves sex with other girls, especially her best friend, Polly Vance. Nevertheless, she tries hard to fit the social norms through frequent sexual coupling with Colum Lanyon, the head footman. She knows that “normal” sex with Colum isn’t going to work in the long run, but Mary Ann is reluctant to cast him aside while she can still enjoy threesomes with him and Polly. The crunch comes when she and Colum are chosen to accompany their master’s daughter away from Long Livery, leaving Polly behind.
Does she want sex with a woman or sex with a man? That’s the big question that Mary Ann Everdene is struggling with as she samples each kind.
In her quest for the answer to this very important question, Mary Ann Everdene journeys through heartbreak and sexual exploration. She begins her exploration with Jenny Ellery, a maid from Long Livery Hall. Along the way, Virginia Windlesham, daughter of Long Livery Hall’s master, wreaks havoc into their lives and everyone else’s lives as well. Colum Lanyon is the head footman of Long Livery Hall and Mary Ann’s boyfriend. Polly Vance is Long Livery lady’s maid and a good friend of Mary Ann’s.
Mary Ann is a likeable person, always trying to do the right thing and standing up for those she loves. Colum is also a compassionate person with the way he cares for his Aunt Maud. It’s easy to see that Mary Ann and Colum should belong together. Or should they not? Both Mary Ann and Colum appear to be distracted by another person and they both begin to explore separately and together.
What I have been noticing so far in reading the Erotic Tales of Long Livery Hall books is the fact that they don’t take forever to get to the “good” parts. In fact, the very first sentence of the book and first scene is very erotic. The “good” parts are also liberally sprinkled throughout the book.
With each book that I read, I am thoroughly enjoying Ms. Knightly’s writing. For those who are entertaining reading this book without reading Book 1 first, it is entirely possible to read each of these books as standalone books. Characters from the previous book appear, but readers would not be lost since each book has its own stories which do not depend on knowing the stories of the other book. So whether or not you have read Book 1 of the Erotic Tales of Long Livery Hall, I highly recommend reading Scandal, Book 2 of the Erotic Tales of Long Livery Hall for a very erotic, exciting, and entertaining saga about the lives of some very interesting characters who live and work at Long Livery Hall in old England.
