Little Lady Jane is a unique tale of love, pain, discipline, and trust that extends across the globe. From the hard, gray lines of Victorian England to the colorful magic and mystery of India, this story unfolds with the opening of the ancient Indian book of sex – the Kama Sutra
Jane Foster, the ward and fiancee of Marquis Philip de Courtier, never knew how the forbidden book stolen from Philip’s library would change both of their lives. For hours, she would sit on the garden swing and secretly study the pictures illustrating the ancient text. She longed to be like the beautiful, sensual women who twisted their bodies into works of art; anything other than Philip’s Little girl who needed guidance, rules, and discipline demanded by high society.
It was easy for Jane to call him ‘Papa’. She had teasingly done so for years; but as an adult, she discovered that the term came with a price- bare bottom spankings for breaking his rules. And Jane made certain to break plenty! Her rebellion grew every time he left her alone in the cold, dark manor. Rebellion that turned to resentment.
But, neither knew that the words in the Kama Sutra had taken root in their hearts- Philip through the teachings of his friend, the Raja; and Jane, through the stolen moments with her book. When he returned from latest trip to India, Jane found the confidence to express her needs. The cries of her heart were heard and, on that fateful night, Philip’s Little Janie was (temporarily) transformed into his Lady Jane.
But Jane had a secret. One she was afraid would repel Philip and make him change his mind about making her his wife. She found new friends within the Palace walls of the Raja and his family, and they helped her accept her secret with pride. She learned quickly that as much as Little Janie was loved by ‘Papa’, Lady Jane was the center of his heart and the desire of his body. She also discovered that as painful as his loving discipline was, the sexual satisfaction was even greater. Like the positions on the Kama Sutra, nothing was left for the imagination.
The fictional story of Little Lady Jane encompasses the essence of the Kama Sutra in a real life scenario, and shows how possible true transformation (in the heart, mind, spirit and body) can be achieved, even the stringent society of Victorian England. The sensuality and sexuality of India replaces the rigid rules and uncompromising dictates of Victorian society, and a story of passion, pain, adventure, and sexual awakening blooms from the depths, like the lotus flower arises out of the darkness of a muddy pond.
I will admit, age play is a new genre to me, and like with any new genre, some books you enjoy and some you don’t. With this book, I did enjoy it, but I also didn’t. But not for the reason you may believe.
I really enjoyed the characters of Jane and Philip, and thought that they were a great match together. I also enjoyed the way that age play was introduced to Jane by Philip. How it was explained and how they went about doing it was really well done by Ms. Hayse. The story did hold a lot of my interest while reading it, I just personally felt like there was something missing from the story. I don’t know exactly what that is, it just felt like something wasn’t there.
I also enjoyed how Ms. Hayse included the information and the differences between the English culture and the Indian culture. I felt like that added a whole new level to the story and it was described so well, I could image what Ms. Hayse was talking about.
I did feel a bit let down at the end of the story, but when I realized that there is a second book in the series, I now have it on my wish list and will hopefully be reading it soon!
