This book consists of two stories set in 12th century England. The characters have body piercings and use sex toys that one finds in current day stores. But, one should not read these for plot, characters and historical accuracy. These two stories are meant for readers who desire a lot of explicit, detailed sex scenes with no care for plot. Personally, I prefer erotic stories that have a little more character development and anticipation. While reading them, I found myself wishing they would be over. In the first story there is a ménage a trois (two guys and a girl). In the second story, there are group sex scenes (two guys and two girls). Both stories include rear door activity.
HE CALLS HER JASMINE.
Joan's wealthy father sends her to a convent. She escapes and is attacked by a group of rapist-robbers. Rolfe, a knight, happens to be riding by and kills her attackers, saving her. She has amnesia and doesn't know who she is. She and Rolfe have sex and fall in love. Her memories later return and they discover she is the only heir to her father's lands, since her brother died after she was sent to the convent. They want to marry, but worry that King Henry might prefer giving her lands and her to another knight.

A GIFT OF GOLD.
Gavin and William deVere are the twin sons of Rolfe (previous story). They like to share women in their bed. Lady Evelyn is to marry Gavin and fears he may not like her large size. She pretends to be a servant girl Evie and goes to him with another servant girl to have sex with him. She is happy to learn that he finds her desireable. Of course, later he is mad at her for deceiving him and pretending to be a whore (his words). Meanwhile, Margaret, the daughter of a Scottish enemy is kidnapped by the deVeres. She is wearing a locked chastity belt/shield. William falls in love with her and has a metal worker remove it. More group sex occurs.
