Sample Chapter

 At long last! A new full-length novel from Alice Liddell, the mistress of erotic BDSM and best-selling author of Childebride Island and The Harlot Bride. This lengthy thriller combines mystery and romance with lots of spanking and delectably twisted school discipline, delivering a hot, kinky read as only Alice can.  Straits Academy is one title you won’t soon forget.

The year is 1921 and a young Englishwoman named Adelaide has sailed halfway around the world to marry, only to learn that her fiancé has been brutally murdered. She is alone in a faraway colony and doesn’t know a soul — except Drake, a friend of her intended. Adelaide poses as his orphaned niece so she may help him solve the mystery.  To complete the deception, before she’s been with Drake even a day, he subjects her to an embarrassing public spanking.

Drake wishes to enroll her in Straits Academy, a mysterious girls’ school he believes is somehow connected to the murder. Before she agrees, he warns her that she will have to trade her smart London fashions for a schoolgirl uniform, and she’ll be subject to the strictest bare-bottom discipline both at home and at school. But it’s only when Adelaide actually enrolls in the Academy that they realize just how peculiar the school really is. Will Adelaide submit to genuine punishment, mortifying examinations, physical restraint and intimate touching at the hands of women — all for the sake of the investigation? Will Drake allow Adelaide to go into real danger, despite his growing feelings for her?  And worst of all, Adelaide is a proper young English lady.   Why is everything that is being done to her so terribly exciting?

Blushing Books and Alice Liddell do it again with a story that is a romance, a mystery and scorchingly hot erotica all at the same time.  Straits Academy includes explicit descriptions of spankings and punishments, including anal penetration, most of which are conducted with dubious consent. It includes elements of “age play,” in which an adult woman is controlled and disciplined by both men and women. If such themes offend you, please do not buy this book.

    A compelling plot mixed with age play combine nicely. A strong female lead who must be disciplined, of course. Really what more could you want? Oh, don\\\’t worry its in there, too.

    Another great story from Alice Liddell that has a little bit of everything. A great male lead as well as a strong heroine who is in definite need of disciple plus throw in a murder and the surrounding mystery of that and you have yourself a winner. AL is definitly on my must buy list.

    Alice Liddell delivers with this full length story. I feel this is her best story yet. The punishment and plot were fantastic. The relationship between the two main characters was well written and easy to follow. The plot idea was great. Mix in some age play and spanking and you will not be able to put this book down.

    This ended as if someone said there were enough pages for a sale and stopped. We were deprived of experiencing Addy being discovered calling for help, the police taking the school, how Addy and Drake handled their future. It\\\’s a shame since the book was so detailed up to the ending. It was a fascinating read that was ended poorly by the author.

    Very well-written. I liked the setting and the historical detail. The author seems to have done her research, and makes it both intriguing and believable. Both hero and heroine are well-developed characters (though a little more background might have been nice…), and both are strong, intelligent, and likable (not to mention sensible – an all too rare characteristic in these types of books). My only problem with this book is that there’s just not enough interaction between hero and heroine. They seemed so perfect for each other, and I really wanted that explored more (what there was was excellent). Not to mention, while the scenes at the school are pretty hot, I find it just that much hotter when in the context of a relationship, so I wanted more of that. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt. I would have given it an even higher rating if it weren’t for those things.

    I love this book – a historical age play which I found pretty erotic! I first read it in chapters but it was unfinished for quite a long time, so I was delighted to be able to get to the end of the story.
    It\\\’s set in Singapore and the plot is that of a good old fashioned murder mystery. But the age play (the heroine has to go undercover in a school) and the spanking action adds a delicious twist!
    Some of the action is F/f which isn\\\’t normally my favourite, but it was well done and appropriate to the setting (of a girls boarding school). But I found it extremely well written, and HOT! I thoroughly recommend it!

    I loved the mystery!! Alice Liddell is a fabulous writer when it comes to age play.
    The twists had me going though I found myself more interested in her side of the story than what he was doing. It was fabulously written and the characters were amazing.

    Good story. I particularly liked that the hero and heroine were quite intelligent and were working together from the very beginning. The murder mystery had them together as a team, even though to outsiders it looked like Addy was a misbehaving child taken in hand by her uncle. Good set up for some impressive spankings that were semi-consensual.

    Plot wise, I wasn\\\’t head over heels about this book. The story line – a woman masquerading as a teen girl and getting away with it because she was so petite/the dead fiancé/the pretend uncle was too much. But if you\\\’re looking for some good spankings and anal play, you\\\’ll overlook the plot and keep reading just like I did. Four stars because of the ending/plot.

    Extremely Hot. I really liked the historical setting in the book. It was a nice mystery so start early in the evening so you can finish in one setting. It is difficult not to finish it.

    I didn\\\’t love this story. Though it wasn\\\’t a bad story; I felt all the hype of the overview here and especially the Foreword made it so big that it just couldn\\\’t meet the expectations. It had all the elements it promised just not enough of them. Also, there were things that were alluded to but never happened, or happened and there were no details for the reader, for example the bed checks and her examination, shaving, enema and inspection.

    I have to agree that this story had quite the build up, but was disappointing in the actual reading. It could have been so much better than it was. The story line had so much promise and intrigue but very little payoff.

    Really enjoyed this, not your average kind of spanking story, lovely humiliating aspects of the school too. Do wisk we could have seen more of the growing relationship between Adelaide and Drake.

    This book so exceeded my expectations. I was expecting something hot and I love stories with age play elements and this book had that but it had so much more. There was a complete other layer to the story surrounding the mystery of opium and murder. This story is beautifully written and I was on the edge of my seat through out the whole story.

    First off, I think this is one of my favorite settings of any work on this site. Alice Liddell is always at her best when she writes historical works, and as in some of the stories in her Decade of Discipline collection, I think she’s at her best historically when she does unique settings. Not only is the setting here (1920s colonial Singapore) well fleshed out, but the writing itself mimics the sort of 1920s pulp adventure/detective novels. The whole concept of the strict boarding school and all the various perils Adelaide faced within – the ominously seductive headmistress, the curious students, the punishments and medical exams, the forced age regression – are all great.

    So I would give it five points for setting, style, and themes…but I have to agree with the below reviewer “KArc” in that at times it really needed to be fleshed out more. For all Adelaide dreaded her upcoming medical exam…we’re just told that it happened. For all Addy was promised she was going to get a bed check one night – it never happens. The fact that the things which are glossed over were what I was most looking forward to didn’t help. So I’m reluctantly giving this a three, though I think a 3.5 is closer. It’s definitely worth reading if you’re into historical, ageplay/school, medical, or good old fashioned adventure romps – but it could have been better, and I feel that if those aspects had been shown rather than just talked about, this could have been one of the absolute best stories on this site.

    I truly enjoyed this book. I’m not much of a fan of the age-play scenarios, but I enjoyed the way the character’s experiences evolved into age-play as they followed the progression of the plot. And I enjoyed the plot.

    While I was left wanting more when the characters hinted toward enticing scenes that never materialized, I did find the writing to be very efficient and smoothly moving forward toward the plot’s conclusion. There – of course- was nothing lacking in the sensually stimulating erotic experience of the characters. And, I did go back and enjoy parts of the book a second time.
