Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Set in colonial Hindustan, ‘Venus in India’ reveals the story of Captain Devereaux, a man who finds it hard to keep his hands off other soldiers’ wives. Exploring the fine art of ménage a trois, Devereaux proves that tropical heat and erotic lust are perfect bedfellows. Indulge in another hot classic from Mischief Books.

To cheat? Or not to cheat?

Captain Devereux is posted to India, far away from his beautiful young wife and child, and at first is devastated at the parting. But when he comes across Lizzie Wilson, the wife of one of his fellow officers, her ample bosom and open thighs prove more than enough consolation. And when her husband objects to their dalliances, no matter – for the Colonel of the regiment's three young daughters, Fanny, Amy and Mabel, are more than eager to be initiated into the ways of adult love…
