Madame Duvalier's Boudoir by Lizbeth Dusseau
In a world turned upside down with political upheaval, women are stripped of their rights and made the submissives of men. Desperate to protect her privileged life, Renee Duvaliar is forced to submit to the sexual whims of local government officials, offering her body for bondage and punishment.
But when the task of protecting her innocent young cousin, Brigitta and two virgin sisters, Katarina and Isobel, falls to her, Renee's uneasy peace with the local government unravels. While escaping to her country home, the four women are arrested by the border patrol - interrogated, stripped and punished. Before they are released, Renee is made to choose which of her young charges will have her virginity sacrificed in a public sex.
The debauchery continues when Renee's country home is raided; she and Brigitta are branded and collared as submissives of the state. Her house is turned into a brothel, while Katarina and Isobel hide in the cellar. When the two virgins are discovered, Madame Duvalier and her unlucky charges are made to pay for the deception; Renee is deported and forced into a shocking form of sexual submission, authored by a scoundrel rebel general. Despite the new horrors she must face, she becomes hypnotized by the General's roguish charm.
This intense novel features graphic sex, interrogation, physical examinations, sadomasochism, bondage, punishment, anal, oral and fem/fem sexuality, branding, the deflowering of virgins and ponygirl training.

Journey into the future where the past has raised its ugly head and women are nothing but slaves -- they have no rights, no respect, nothing. Along comes one woman who will not be conquered. She may be whipped, she may be treated most shabbily, she may be accused of treason, but she prevails through sheer strength of indomitable optimism and will.
This fascinating tale uses much of our human past to create a bleak future of backlash against electronic technology, rampant sexuality, viral webcams, loss of privacy, and paparazzi.
Set in what seems to be France of the future (post-21st century, readers are treated to an arousing picture of young flesh rudely "de-virginated" (to use a term fashioned by author's created rebel society). The premise of using current modes of behavior as the basis for the way women are treated in the book tends to make one think long and hard about the directions in which our current society seems to be headed.
I found the book fascinating and very difficult to put down. Kudoes to Lizbeth for once again crafting an intelligent, thought-provoking and scintillating journey!
