When Alice Woodforde is dumped by her boyfriend, she's left in a tight spot with no home and very little money. So the offer of an easy job as house maid to handsome Professor Poole seems like a gift from heaven.
But Professor Poole has a collection of vintage implements of correction, and he likes to use them. Women come to him from far and wide to be trained in the rigorous arts of discipline.
When Alice carelessly breaks a priceless vase, she too submits to her handsome employer's arcane skills… and finds that being 'corrected' by the stern but sexy Professor is far more arousing and darkly pleasurable than anything she ever did with her boyfriend!
