An idea from a story of mine:
A promise on the battlefield results in the second son (a soldier) of a very wealthy family being left guardian of a young girl, a fellow patriot’s sister. He meets her only once and that is the day he arrives to make his presence known to her as her guardian. The young man fulfills the promise to take care of the girl, sending her to school and making sure she is provided for. He then washes his hands of her, after all he’s got a group of lawyers that will take care of her needs and make sure she’s ready for society when the time is right. Years pass and she grows up educated and reports are sent to him – everything is going well, she’s talented, lovely, and well versed in several languages.
He realizes it’s time to head home when he receives a note from an old family friend that tells him the young woman has opened her own business and was openly engaging in unsavory ways to earn coin. Since women are so inferior to men, he realizes it’s time to marry the girl off and wash his hands of her. She’s sullying his name after all – women aren’t supposed to run businesses; they are supposed to make babies, sing songs, play the piano and look pretty. He isn’t given the details of the business, only that it is causing quite a scene in the upper levels of society.
So our fellow heads home – unannounced. He discovers she’s running a boarding house that occasionally doubles as a brothel, depending on how desperately she needs money. He is of course shocked, after all from the reports he’s received she should have tons of money and lack for nothing. He learns the money he has sent throughout the years has been rerouted and the money he had left in the care of his bankers/lawyers has also disappeared; it is because of her that he still has a home and land. Though grateful, he has to find out what happened and who double crossed him, and why…
Also, the woman herself is not one of the regulars when she throws a party. She’s very choosy of her lovers – so she’s not a virgin, but she’s used to calling the shots in the bedroom, because she is the one that holds the power (for now).Some possible suggestions:
- 1. Someone he had to deal with in the past is seeking to ruin him.
- 2. Your suggestions.
Sexual elements I am open to:
For this thread I see romance – eventually. The brothel business is a side bar story, but could include scenes involving some of the girls and some clients, but it shouldn’t be the MAIN story line. The main thread of the story should be about the growing relationship between the young woman, and her guardian. I am looking for a revenge angle, but am open to any other suggestions. Also I can see elements of various sexual encounters – including but not limited to – BDSM, FMF, FM, MFM (mainly for the brothel scenes) – Kidnapping/torture/humiliation/forced oral (but no intercourse – unless discussed and agreed by me) (if the main girl is kidnapped) – Light bondage, FM (for the woman and the guardian).Realism:
I would like realistic dialog, setting can be made up, but carry the theme of Early 1800s. I am not familiar with the time era as far as what wars were happening where/when, so I am very open to my co-writer taking the lead on some of the historical aspects. But we don’t need to keep with reality, just the foggy version of it.
My overall goal:
I see a good ol’ romance story, the kind women read years ago and still read, but with more sexual spice between the covers than what they used to get. A happy ending of course, but not before we deal with two people who just don’t see how good they are for each other, as well as dealing with the villain(s) that have forced our lady to lower her morals. POV:
This story is to be written in 3rd POV.
