A novel by Aishling Morgan
The devotees at the convent of St.Quay are subject to a harsh regime of corporal punishment and humiliation. For Lalage Vergelesses, the torment is double, for she is a whipping girl, assigned to take the punishments otherwise due to a noble's errant daughter. But the demure Demoiselle is not who she seems, and behind the arcane SM rituals, the convent hides some sinister secrets too.Part of the Scarlet Gothic series.
