In Lavinia Kent’s luscious, erotic historical romance, a free spirit learns her true desires from a master of the heart, of the body—and of the sweetest discipline.

Lady Bliss Danser, daughter of the Duke of Mirth, is a scandal waiting to erupt. Which is why her highly conventional brother wants to saddle her with Stephan Perth, Earl of Duldon, the only man he thinks will marry her. Worse, Stephan keeps threatening to punish her, to teach her just how a woman should behave. His words may cause Bliss to tingle in the strangest places, but that doesn’t mean she likes the man himself.

Stephan has secretly desired Bliss for years, but he knows how close he is to losing his beloved. Careful not to rile her impetuous heart, he promises only to aid Bliss in her search for another fiancĂ©. And if she’s determined to understand the male body first, he’s happy to comply in that regard as well. However, she must follow his rules or face the consequences. Slowly he takes Bliss to the darker, steamier side of his world . . . where she realizes that Stephan is everything she’s ever wanted.

Bound by Bliss is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

My Review:

Intro: I am normally a bit iffy about jumping into a series so late but I figured I would give it a go with this one. It just sounded so good and I am a bit of a weakling when a book sounds good.


Heroine: Bliss-She is one of the best heroines I have come across in the BDSM genre. She is strong, smart and not at all wishy-washy. She takes some control. She is not a bystander.  

Hero: Stephan-He frustrated me a lot. He seemed very controlling and overbearing towards Bliss. Not as bad as Christian Grey. Not even a little bit. But still enough that I wanted to throw a shoe at him.

Chemistry-I loved how Kent portrayed this type of relationship. The rules were laid out and agreed upon. Both characters had agency and control. I find that lacking in other similar books---not mentioning any titles.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I really liked this one. I think I may look into this genre more given how much I loved Bound By Bliss. I will definitely be going back and reading the previous books in the series which sound just as good.
