    1. Product Description

      Cassandra's Conflict was the first ever Black Lace book published 15 years ago and reprinted five times in its first year. This title launches the Black Lace 15th Anniversary Celebration and is a must for all Black Lace fans.

      A house in Hampstead. Present-day. Behind a façade of cultured respectability lies a world of decadent indulgence and dark eroticism.

      Cassandra's sheltered life is transformed when she gets employed as governess to the Baron's children. He draws her into games where lust can feed on the erotic charge of submission. Games where only he knows the rules and where unusual pleasures can flourish.

    1. First erotic book I have found pleasure reading

      Reviewed: 02 January 2011 by vixenxxx

      Cassandra's Conflict was a brilliant introduction to BL books. It has a bit of everything in it and love fantasy where the men are teaching the woman for a change.

      I love the storyline and how the sexy bits fit in so brilliantly. It's a book that really opens your mind to trying new things and for me has made me look at myself and what I like in the bedroom differently. I feel happy to willingly try anything - just have to convince my other half he he!

      The characters are very engaging, a book I couldn't put down and I could barely control my excitement for the sequel.

    1. Wow

      Reviewed: 24 August 2010 by suze9, a Straight Married Female

      I chose this book as I liked the fact there was a second one. I would recommend that if you buy this (and you really should) then you should also buy Cassandra's Chateau or you will kick yourself for having to wait for the next one to be delivered, and yes I know with the speedy delivery Lovehoney is famous for and that it would be with you the next day, its still too long to wait!

      I really do not want to give away the story but it is heavy BD/SM and group sex and is quite extreme at times. It is fast paced and a bit far fetched but for some reason it works and you don't question why she would not turn and run at the first hint of what's going on. I can see why this was re-printed five times in its first year as it draws you in making it almost impossible to put down until you reach the end.

    1. I can't wait to read the sequel!

      Reviewed: 12 March 2010 by blondes_have_more_fun, a Straight Single Female

      I loved this! It's good story, with a perfect balance of story and sex scenes. The characters (apart from Cassandra) are totally debauched and I wouldn't recommend this if you're not comfortable with that, but nothing made me squeamish. I wouldn't want to try out most of the ideas myself, but they make a great read! There are some very hot scenes, some great tips and a very sexy antihero. It's much better written than some erotic books I've read. The author strikes the right balance between explicit and coy language.

    1. Seriously hot, though a challenge for the faint hearted?

      Reviewed: 04 May 2009 by bigbrownblowjobeyes

      I was really looking forward to reading this, it has got quite a reputation and seems to divide readers down the middle. I have read some very mixed reviews.

      This is my view on it:

      Cassandra's Conflict, like much erotica has a somewhat far-fetched plot. This, however, is just fine by me; it is fantasy after all.

      Throughout the strongly BDSM/group themed sex scenes runs a deep psychological undercurrent. You are drawn into the mind and emotions of the heroine as well as finding a real understanding of how the other main characters minds work.

      Despite the power games and strong competitiveness between the two main female characters, there is a real tenderness at the heart of the story (on the part of Cassandra), which is partially what drives our heroine to continues 'The Game'.

      There are a few scenes with a very strong BDSM theme, which some readers will find too much and a little off-putting. If you are into BDSM though, as I am, you will love them. One scene in particular is not going to be many people's cup of tea, so to speak. But don't let that one scene put you off, it is as much metaphorical and symbolic as it is literal. Proof of how far Cassandra will go for the Baron.

      Very well written with steaming sex scenes and a real understanding of the psychology behind these types of games. An eye opener for those previously not interested in these things.

      Definitely worth a read.

      Red hot sex scenes, group and BDSM scenes. Well written.
      Cons
      One scene didn't do it for me, but not a problem overall.
      Bottom line
      Enthralling.

    1. Kink at its best!

      Reviewed: 08 April 2008 by creativewriter1985

      I was eager to read this book given the mixed reviews. Some people said it was one of the most kinky Black Lace books they'd read, and an Amazon reviewer was not impressed at all.

      However, I wanted to form my own opinion. And it's definitely favourable. Honestly, I did find the plot itself a little far-fetched. But because the sex scenes and characters were so compelling, I soon forgot about that and just concentrated on how hot the narrative was!

      This is a book about submission and domination, and sex games taken to the extreme. There were some sex acts which went beyond perverse and didn't do anything for me, but the book on a whole was really, really sexy and it's one I'll be keeping in my collection!

      It's not for the faint-hearted, but if you're into lots of kinkiness and sub/dom relationships, you'll adore this.

      Kinky, sexy, hot!
      Cons
      Some sex acts were a little too perverse, but each to their own!
      Bottom line
      Excellent. Those with pretty hardcore tastes like mine will love this.
