This is a novella in diary format of the confessions of Lady Cecelia Stanton. When Cecelia "CeeCee" Stanton marries the rakish Lord Stanton she is a virgin and knows nothing about sex. Her first time with her husband was a painful experience for her and when her trusted maid, Bess, offers to take her under her tutelage to learn the arts of bedplay she agrees and learns how to make sex a more pleasurable experience for herself. Things get complicated as CeeCee relies more and more on the love and friendship of Bess.
I really enjoyed this novella and would definitely read more from the author. I found the story to actually be a bit sad, yet very sexy at the same time. It wasn't quite as erotic as I'd liked it to have been and I'd love to see a continuation of the book or maybe just a chapter or two more. The ending did seem a bit abrupt to me, but the overall reading experience was quite enjoyable.
I'm giving The Wicked Confessions of Lady Cecelia Stanton 3 out of 5 stars.
