When her fiancé trades her for an heirloom ring to a dashing highwayman who holds up their coach on a desolate country road, Sophia Astley is hurt and shocked. However, it soon becomes strikingly apparent to Sophia that she is the true gem Bad Jack sought. Intrigued, she willingly submits to every tantalizing taboo he metes out to her.
Dressed as a masked highwayman, Jack Badcock, Earl of Stafford, thinks he is acting out the fantasies of a woman he knows only through lurid letters. As Jack tames her with blindfolds, sensual spankings and an array of torrid toys, she plays her role as the abducted, submissive virgin convincingly—too convincingly. By the time Jack uncovers his fantasy lover’s true identity, it’s far, far too late.
Badcock had me in stitches laughing when I wasn't salivating over the sexy dominant in the regent period. As the title implies the sexy hero Jack is one bad man with a cock many women would give their soul for.
I didn't find myself sorry for Sophia's plight or the loss of her virginity. In fact I thought it a better life for her than to be stuck with such a pig as her previous intended.
I found myself proud of her for daring to take on a lifestyle she knew nothing about without giving in to the protocol of her time.
The read was totally delightful and decadently naughty and I'll be reading it soon again. I've read other works by Debra Glass and am never left wanting.
