When female Confederate spy Rose Carson seduces a handsome Union Officer in A Question of Pleasure, it is only to gather secrets. She never expected to fall in love, or to submit to his extreme demands when he discovers her duplicity.
Of all the stories in Wicked Games, this is the one that I liked the least. They all made me get a little uncomfortable and pushed my boundaries a little… but this one didn’t just push my boundaries, it took me over the edge. Solely because in this the man who supposedly loves his sub woman forces her to be with another man… honestly, BDSM is fine, experiences like what were described in this are fairly acceptable. Being forced into it with a third party. I just don’t see how that is done by someone you love.
Having said all of that, I did like that this was about spies and the Yankees versus Rebels. It was kind of nice to have a little spy versus spy story set in a time when people were on the verge of change. And, since I know literally nothing about this period of American history, it was kind of interesting to get what little insight this story did give me.
Honestly, I would have probably thoroughly enjoyed this tale if it wasn’t for the fact that there was another man involved. I’m just having some serious troubles moving past that one…
