Depravity's Child by Lizbeth Dusseau
The beautiful, alluring but very sheltered Antonia suddenly finds herself married off to Rupert Reyes, a handsome stranger with a penchant for dominating women. Antonia's domineering father, Benito, expects the marriage will make his willful daughter a submissive just like her mother, Honoria, who is dutifully at his beck and call. But Benito knows nothing about Rupert's villainous heart.
Though he first woos his bride with charm, virility and good looks, he insists on binding her when making love. After the honeymoon he puts Antonia through ruthlessly invasive anal training giving her to other men with increasing penis endowment in order to make her backdoor ready for his own enormous organ. While his wife suffers, he enjoys nights with his kinky mistress.
Although Antonia first tries to do her duty, she finally rebels and seeks out the comfort of Rafael Francisco, a contractor working for her husband. He knows all about Rupert's foul treatment of women and insists that she speak to her father about Rupert's treachery. But Antonia calls too late; Benito has suddenly died, leaving Antonia no way out of her horrible marriage.
Taking over the family estate, Rupert brings Honoria to live with them, where he turns his mother-in-law into a sex toy, who he plans to sell. To protect her daughter, Honoria surrenders to the man, even as the masochistic side of her obsesses on the brutal treatment. To protect her mother, Antonia rejects plans to flee with Rafael, now her lover. While a ray of hope remains, a maid's betrayal turns Antonia's love affair into a crime that demands from her a miserable punishment. Is there any way that love can win and the sadist be defeated? A stunning series of events ends this story with unexpected surprises that keep the reader turning pages to the final scene.
This S&M story is filled with the joy of passionate love coupled with raw desire, treacherous obsession and ruthless acts of depravity. Included in its graphic content are heavy bondage, breast and nipple torture, punishment, piercing, enemas, anal sex, exhibitionism and humiliating servitude.

This book I read in only one day. In most of Mrs. Dusseau’s books, I can identify with the main character; flow in their emotions; sense their needs; feel their longing. However, in this book, I quickly learned to hate one of the main characters – What a wonderful story that can make you feel those emotions as strongly as did I in this book.
The marriages portrayed in this novel are certainly nothing like what I look for in a relationship. These submissive women are nothing more than chattel to their husbands, and are made to suffer extreme sexual and mental abuse.
Antonia is given to Rupert by her father, Benito. They meet and are married the very same day. The honeymoon is wonderful and is exactly as Antonia expects it to be. Little does she realize the sadist that lies behind the good-looking exterior of the man she just married. He is cruel beyond measure… using other men to prepare her anally for himself, sleeping with other women in the very next room, confining her to only a few rooms within his home, and other events that make you hate him beyond measure.
But as Antonio’s husband and father become ruthless and predictable, one man comes along to help free her soul. Antonia yearns to flee with her lover; however, she must stay to protect her mother whom has come to live with Antonia and Rupert. She just doesn’t realize the sacrifices her mother, Honoria, must make in order to keep her safe.
I remained glued to this book even as I despised many of the male characters, while at the same time, I read with amazement about the extreme abuse and ridicule they heaped on their poor wives. And yet, a hero does come along… albeit for a very short time. All I can say to the villains of this story (her father and her husband)… what goes around, comes around!!!! A very satisfying ending.
