Long Livery Hall has been bought and rebuilt by Randolph Penrice, whose parents emigrated from Cornwall to California. Randolph made a fortune from the gold fields and has returned to England a very wealthy man. Now he wants to find a wife: a woman of noble birth who can bestow nobility upon his offspring. But ‘Chuck’ also believes in “trying before buying”. Three women are keen to entice him into marriage by means of their bedtime skills, but which one will make a good mistress for the new Long Livery Hall?
It’s 1858 and gamekeeper Dewy Kittow has a cosy sexual relationship with Lizzie Hudson, a lady’s maid at Long Livery Hall. But, in the heat of a sweltering late summer, Lizzie makes one terrible mistake. To make matters worse, Virginia Windlesham—now returned to Long Livery after the birth of her illegitimate baby—is anxious to resume relations with Dewy. She’ll go to any lengths to get Lizzie out of the way, regardless of how much Lizzie will suffer for it. But even Virginia couldn’t have foreseen just how terrible the ensuing events would be.
Sir John Windlesham sends his fractious daughter, Virginia, away from home because she is pregnant with an illegitimate baby. He instructs two of his servants to go with her, but he is unaware that Colum Lanyon and Mary Ann Everdene are involved in a torrid, but awkward sexual relationship.
Although Colum wants to marry her, Mary Ann’s sexual preferences lie with other women. When she finds her way into the bed of a noble lady, the scene is set for a difficult showdown.
Mary-Ann Everdene, a maid at Long Livery Hall, loves sex with other girls, especially her best friend, Polly Vance. Nevertheless, she tries hard to fit the social norms through frequent sexual coupling with Colum Lanyon, the head footman. She knows that “normal” sex with Colum isn’t going to work in the long run, but Mary Ann is reluctant to cast him aside while she can still enjoy threesomes with him and Polly. The crunch comes when she and Colum are chosen to accompany their master’s daughter away from Long Livery, leaving Polly behind.
It is 1858 and Dewy Kittow, the gamekeeper at Long Livery Hall, is torn between two women. His heart goes out to Lizzie Hudson, a young virgin working at a seaman’s mission in Plymouth. But it is Sir John Windlesham’s fractious daughter, Virginia, who demands more and more sexual enjoyment with him. He is anxious to put a stop to his adventures with Virginia in order to get Lizzie into his bed, but Virginia will not play ball.
Lizzie, meanwhile, is caught in the dilemma of wondering whether she would prefer to be bedded by Dewy…or a woman.
