Little Etta

Philip Hartley owns an elite finishing school; a hidden gem that focuses on the sexual submission and complete discipline of young ladies. Behavior, expectations, and beliefs are quite different there. It's a finishing school to help a woman find that inner little girl which once was lost. A private school that requires its pupils to surrender their bodies, their minds, and their souls to their betrothed.

When Henrietta Waters' estranged uncle decides it is best for her to attend the Ashby Chateau and become betrothed to a proper husband, the young woman has no choice but to comply. The recent death of her father has left her with very little options.

But can Etta fully surrender in ways she has never imagined? Can she allow a nanny to take care - fully take care - of her every need? Can she submit to discipline and sexual training as the purity of her inner child blends with the fire of her sexual desires? And is it possible for her to truly become the little love that Headmaster Philip Hartley demands?


Little Gigi

The taboo. The secret. The discipline

The nanny. Finally, her story.

When street urchin Georgiana Hayes meets a mysterious gentleman who offers her a warm meal and a chance to get warm again, she cannot resist.

The man who has rescued her from the cold is, in fact, Mr. Philip Hartley; headmaster of the Ashby Chateau - a finishing school, and a place where young ladies can learn to submit and rediscover their inner 'little' selves. He is looking for a new nanny, and is quick to offer the position to Georgiana.

Georgiana accepts gratefully, and she instantly becomes The Nanny.

Unfortunately, she soon realizes that she is not really cut out for the role of disciplinarian. If anything, she finds herself beginning to envy the girls under her care, and wishes that she, too, could experience what it would be like to be little; to be cherished, cared for, and loved.

Theodore Elliott, a well-established businessman, is seeking a wife, and has craved the special love and affection of a 'little' for as long as he can remember. The moment he sets eyes on Nanny Giana, he knows without a doubt that she is the one he has been searching for. No other little at the school can compare to the dark-haired beauty.

Can Theo convince the headmaster to allow Giana to resign from her position as governess and enroll in the Ashby Chateau as a little? More importantly, is Giana willing to take that step for a man she barely knows but is intrigued by? Can she surrender herself physically, emotionally, and sexually in order to become what Theo desires above all else: his little Gia?


Little Eliza

Philip Hartley runs an elite finishing school, Ashby Chateau, which turns young women into perfectly submissive little ones. He has been zealous about discretion, ensuring that only those worthy and with a recommendation have the chance to become part of this world.

When Charley Lockwood, a journalist for the local newspaper, begins snooping around the chateau, he catches a glimpse of a young woman in a dress far too scandalous to be legal. Curiosity and arousal strike him like an arrow, making him desperately keen to know more about the girl in the yellow dress.

Eliza Stead was brought to the Ashby Chateau by her betrothed, who wanted to teach her to submit and become his little wife. However, his visits to her grow ever more infrequent, and she suspects his interest in her is waning; a fact which is soon confirmed. Due to her desire to continue her education rather than be forced to return home unwed, she must find a papa who loves her and is willing to pay her tuition and marry her.

Will Charley's desire for the truth ruin Little Eliza's life at the Ashby? Can Charley accept the world he has stepped into without destroying it? And can they both find love in a world of little secrets?

Chapter One

Etta watched from the second story, dusty, gray window as the carriage pulled up to the front of her home. She wiped at the layer of filth, which allowed her to see what she most feared. Her stomach clenched in knots as a gentleman stepped out into the fog and light mist of rain. He placed the black hat atop his head, shielding himself from the moisture. 

Henrietta wanted to hide. She had not seen her Uncle Jack since she had been a little girl, no older than five. At the time, he had scared her; his putrid breath and leering stare. He had even made a joke about her betrothal, something she hadn't wanted to think about as a child, let alone now, fifteen years later. 

Her mother had passed away in childbirth, and her father had perished just last week, leaving everything, including his only daughter, to a brother he had not kept in touch with in well over a decade.

She had no desire to leave her residence but she herself had no money, the dowry being tied up with her Uncle Jack, which meant it would be her time to leave soon—and leave everything she knew behind.

Her travel satchel sat on the mattress in her bedroom, next to where her single trunk stood full and ready. Henrietta had packed by herself at the news of her departure, all servants already having been discharged. Would she be given adequate accommodations when she reached her uncle's home? Or would he lock her in a cellar, the way he did in her paranoid nightmares?

Etta had always had an overactive imagination, or so she had been told. Stories flowed freely from her lips, embellishments easy to make as she envisioned a unique world and fascinating tales of witches and sorcery. Her amused father had insisted the stories remain between them, that even so much as a hint of her wild narratives could cause her to find herself in an unfortunate situation. At the very least, he had told her, it was quite improper for a lady to have such thoughts. She had been cautious, of course, trusting very few people and having even less friends over the years as her father grew ill and she spent her later years caring for him.

At twenty, she was of an age to marry, but her prospects lacked in bounty—in fact, they were lacking altogether. If she were to be honest, Etta found pleasure in being free. The responsibility of such a commitment, a contract between two people and the exchange of a dowry for her hand, felt wickedly absurd. However, it was not as though she could voice such a sentiment to anyone.

Fear crept inside her. Etta's hands shook with nerves as her uncle stepped inside the house. She could hear his footfall through the floorboards down below.

"Henrietta!" he called, his deep voice echoing off the walls. He stood in the foyer, making no attempt to wander any further inside.

With caution, she edged out of her room and stood at the top of the stairs, staring down the banister to the ground floor at Uncle Jack. He had not changed much since she had last seen him, except perhaps he had grown a little older, his dark black hair now showing wisps of gray. He was taller than her father, yet her uncle's posture gave him the appearance of being hunched forward, along with his protruding potbelly. As she continued to stare at him, she realized he looked nothing like his brother, except for the slightly hooked nose, a trait that all men in the family had acquired.

"Please, sir, I prefer to be called Etta," she said. "My trunk is up here."

"You will answer to what I call you, Henrietta. Bring your belongings downstairs. The road is wet, and we do not wish to ride at night."

She knew what he really meant—that if she did not make haste, he'd be forced to stay at the house for the evening and, for whatever reason, he was not going to do that.

"Yes, of course." Etta stepped into her bedroom and lifted one end of the trunk by the thick leather handle, dragging it across the red and yellow rug and over the wooden floor and down the stairs, listening to it smack each stair on its descent down. She prayed it would not leave scratches on the perfectly sanded floorboards. The grain was as beautiful as it had been the day it was constructed, or so she imagined. The house had many years to it, as her father had moved in long before she had been born.

Jack cleared his throat, perhaps expecting Henrietta to lift the trunk and carry it properly, an impossibility, of course. If the trunk had not weighed close to what she herself did, she would have found it easier to transport down the stairs.

"You are bringing all that?" he asked, staring at her as if she had gone insane. He shook his head. "Come, Henrietta. We have not got all day." He stepped outside and left the front door open.

The moment weighed heavily on her; leaving behind the only home she'd ever known. The hinges to the door had rusted, an oversight she'd had when tending to the house and her ailing father. She'd heard the constant squeak and groan of the rusted metal whenever she let the doctors in to visit, but as quickly as the sound reminded her, the thought would be forgotten at her father's groans and coughs. 

In the earlier years of his sickness, she'd been keeping up with the chores, making sure the house looked beautiful for him. More recently, her focus had been set entirely on her father. She had no regrets, except that she didn't have more time to spend with him.

Etta glanced over her shoulder, already missing the warmth and smells of her home terribly, but the house was no longer the same without her father. Even in his last dying moments, she'd kept the place up as best she could, lighting candles and sprinkling cinnamon into the flames to ward off the stench of death. The house needed a fresh coat of paint and a few shingles had come loose, but there were worse places to live. The memories seeped into her with every glance at the walls, the paintings a reminder of her father's talent. She wanted to take one with her, but she could not carry it as well as her trunk. Would Jack sell the paintings and the house? Would the treasures of her past be scattered amongst the townsfolk for a few shillings?

Following her uncle outside, she used all her strength to lift the trunk just a smidge from the ground, awkwardly trying to keep her travel satchel balanced over her shoulder, hoping to prevent it from falling to the soft soil. Etta hated December weather, with the cool temperatures forcing her to keep her cloak pulled tight around her body. Her hands grew red and numb as she struggled toward the carriage.

Uncle Jack waited beside the coach, finally snapping at the driver to assist Etta with her belongings, then reaching out to aid her inside. She stumbled forward, grabbing a seat across from him. To her, he felt like a stranger, even though they were bound by blood. Her father and Jack had not seen one another in years. She did not know the exact reason why they'd had a falling out and her father, even on his deathbed, had not uttered the words to tell her what her fate would be.

In fact, her father had not given her any indication that Uncle Jack would be her guardian. It had been the lawyer who arrived that had informed her she now belonged to a relative—along with her dowry and the house. She herself had nothing.

"I am sorry to inform you, Miss Waters, but your father wished for his brother to have the house and to look after his only daughter. His will states that Mr. Jack Waters is the sole heir, and your dowry will be paid to a husband of his choosing."

"You can't be serious," Etta had said, her heart slamming against the walls of her chest. "My father has not spoken to Uncle Jack since I was a child. When was the will drawn up?" Perhaps he had not got around to making the necessary changes.

"That does not matter, Miss Waters." The lawyer had sighed, shifting his hat slightly atop his bulbaceous head. His eyebrows were thick and met just above the line to his nose. A few wisps of gray hair edged from the gentleman's nostrils, making him rather unappealing for a man a decade younger than her father. "I know this is troubling for you, as you are of an age to wed, but perhaps this is for the best. You have spent many years caring for your dying father, is that not correct?"

Etta did not agree that it was for the best, but yes, she had stayed at her father's bedside while he had withered away, the ghost of what eventually killed him dragging him between life and death for years. "Yes, I stayed with him. I was his nurse." Though she did not know much about being a nurse, she had acquired enough skills to feed him with a spoon and roll him around often to keep him from acquiring bedsores. She had carefully utilized all information provided by the doctor who had visited him twice a week.

"Just as you cared for your father, your uncle will care for you," the lawyer had said. His no nonsense tone told her that arguing would do little good. "I am sure he will be anxious to find you a suitable husband. Let your uncle take care of you, Miss Waters. It is what your father wanted."

The ride to her uncle's estate was cloaked in silence. The clank of the wheels and the horses' hooves pounding the earth were the only sounds that reached Etta's ears. She did not know what would become of her when she set foot inside his home. Would he expect her to cook and clean for him? Did he intend to marry her off immediately? She folded her hands together in her lap, anxiously waiting for her uncle to say something—anything. She was met with silence.

"We're here." His voice seemed to carry with the wind as she stared out of the carriage window. They were approaching a house larger than her father's by far. The three story structure sent a shudder down her spine; the way its dark, gray stones loomed high above. It towered over Etta, making her feel incredibly small and unwanted due to its massive size. The lawn extended as far as the eye could see, perfectly manicured, with groundskeepers likely caring for the land. Etta doubted her uncle went outside and pruned the bushes, ever. He didn't seem the type to get his hands dirty, at least when it came to the soil outside. She certainly couldn't speak for his character.

"What is your profession, Uncle Jack?" It was a rude question, but she could not fathom how he could afford such a luxurious home and lifestyle. 

"I am a businessman," he said. His answer was short and to the point, offering no hint of what that meant exactly.

Etta sat in silence as the driver pulled the carriage around to the front of the home. Once they'd drawn to a stop, he came around to open the door. He offered his hand, and Etta grabbed it, as well as her satchel.

When her eyes went toward her trunk, he smiled. "Allow me," he said, taking her trunk up to the door.

The front door swung open wide, and an older woman who could have easily been Uncle Jack's wife opened the door. "You must be Miss Henrietta," she said. "Here, I shall have your belongings brought to your room. Remove your cloak and then join us for dinner."

"Please call me Etta," she said, correcting the woman who hadn't given her name. Etta followed her inside the house and slipped out of her cloak, leaving it in the foyer—the house was warm and comfortable enough that she didn't need it. The house smelled funny, though, like an old man's sock drawer. The scent tickled her nose in the most unappealing way. She opted to breathe through her mouth and prayed she might soon be able to open a window to let some fresh air into her new home.

Etta's eyes moved over the bare walls. Not a single painting had been hung up, which was a peculiar sight for a girl who had grown up with a love of art. The candlelight reflected off the walls, revealing a lackluster gray color, most unappealing to the eye. She stared up at the high-vaulted ceilings. The stairwell climbed around the room, and she swallowed nervously. She would surely get lost before the night was over. Already she felt overwhelmed and saddened, missing her father more than she had since the moment he had passed. Unwilling to let her uncle see the despair in her eyes, she bit her bottom lip and sucked in the emotion, pretending to be pleased with the arrangement.

The woman pointed a firm finger upstairs to the driver, even though he seemed to know his way. 

Etta stood in the foyer, hungry and praying her stomach wouldn't rumble and embarrass her. The last meal she'd eaten had been that morning, and had consisted of porridge. Food had been scarce lately, due to the lack of money since her father's passing. She had nothing, it had all been given to her uncle, which meant she had to trust he would take care of her. She hoped dinner would be soon, given the hour, though she was quite unsure where the dining room was located. Would they serve anything she might find appealing?

Uncle Jack followed her inside, stepping on the mat before he shed his coat and hat. "This way, Henrietta." He must have sensed her unease. "We shall be having company this evening. Seeing as how you are of legal age to marry, there is someone I would like you to meet; a business associate of mine, Philip Hartley."

Etta swallowed the lump in her throat. Business associate? Did that mean he was as old as her uncle? She did not dare voice her concerns. Jack had been kind enough to take her in, but it was clear he did not want her to stay for long. It was not as though she desired to be there either. They would have to make do with one another, for now.

Chapter Two

Philip went up the stairs, his eyes taking in the manor. The place could never be called quaint—in fact it was large enough to house a princess, yet not fancy enough. Philip had grown comfortable with his surroundings at the Ashby Chateau. He may not have lived a life of luxury ever since he'd been born, but he had done well for himself, and indulged in the finer things that life had to offer. He had expected gas lamps to line the path on his way inside, but only a single light had been stationed at the gate upon his entrance, and it had burned out. The grounds, though tended to, ought to have been trimmed again more recently; the grass was too high for his liking. The stone walls could have resembled a castle, had the stone been scrubbed clean of the offending mold sprouting on the side of the building. Adjusting his coat, he knocked on the front door.

The housekeeper opened it, barely cracking it wide enough to peek around.

"Good afternoon, madam." He bowed his head in greeting. "Philip Hartley. I am here to see Mr. Waters." 

"Good afternoon, sir. Please come inside. The master will be with you in a moment," the housekeeper said. She led him into the foyer and offered to take his top hat and coat.

"Thank you," he said, standing in the front hall, his eyes darting over the starkly bare walls and the large staircase that led to the first floor. The house was in pristine condition, as if no one had ever lived inside it. A strangeness surrounded the place, the smell being oddly familiar.

Philip knew Mr. Jack Waters from his business dealings. He had worked with him on law contracts, and offered guidance whenever Mr. Waters suspected he was being swindled. Jack had invited him to dinner, though he did not quite know what the occasion was. He rarely mixed business with pleasure, but upon Jack's insistence, he had agreed.

"It is a pleasure to see you again, Mr. Hartley," Jack said as he entered the foyer.

Philip smiled through tight lips. "There is no reason to be so formal. It is Philip." If they were here for dinner, then they surely may talk business, but he found no need for their conduct to be so tight and stuffy. Philip had friends, but very few outside of the community in which he lived. It was a nice change to be invited to dinner, especially one so elegant and formal. He hoped he had not under dressed for the occasion, in his white shirt, black trousers, and black striped waistcoat, with his tie tucked neatly down between his shirt and vest.

"Likewise. Come, we are ready to dine."

Philip raised an eyebrow, curious as to who else would be joining them for dinner. As far as he knew, Jack was not married and had no children. The man had several housekeepers who cared for his home, fed him a proper meal, and looked after him, but none that he was tied down to.

Philip followed Jack into the dining room and was quite surprised to see a lovely woman, a few years younger than him, sitting quietly and alone at the table. She was holding up her fork, glancing at her reflection in the silver. She looked quite lovely and nervous; her hand twitched at the realization that someone else had entered the room. Her long blonde hair flowed down her back and moved with her like a kiss from the wind, caressing her skin, as she turned her head to see what the commotion was all about.

As soon as her crystal blue eyes met his, she dropped the utensil on the table. It made a clanking sound as she pushed her chair back to stand.

"I do not believe we've met," Philip said, walking toward her, offering his hand. His eyes moved over her perfect creamy complexion and down to the dusting of freckles on her neck that dipped down to just above her breasts, where her gown prevented any further glimpse of her skin.

"My name is Etta Waters, sir."

Philip glanced from Etta to Jack. "You did not tell me you had a daughter."

"She is my niece," Jack said, quick to clarify his position. "My brother passed away a short time ago. Henrietta has come to live here with me, until I can find her a proper home. She has just arrived."

Philip's eyes narrowed. Had that been why Jack was quick to invite him? He wanted to marry the poor girl off? She was beautiful, no doubt, with her rosy cheeks and long blonde tresses, but he did not have time to look after a wife, especially one who was undoubtedly still grieving the loss of her father.

"I am not in need of a wife, Jack, if that was the implication of tonight's dinner."

"Of course not," Jack said, shaking his head. He took a seat at the table, waving his hand as if to dismiss such an idea. "I thought your new finishing school… Ashby Chateau, is it? I thought it might suit Henrietta perfectly."

"I prefer to be called Etta," she corrected firmly, yet still polite.

Jack shot a glare at Etta and then nodded toward Philip. "I believe it is quite clear what I mean."

Etta was not pleased with the situation. She glanced from the straight razor to the door. How far could she get? At the moment, she was naked, and the nightgown was far too inadequate to snatch and take with her if she ran. Besides, she had no money and no home. She did not even know where the chateau was located, and her uncle would not be pleased upon her return. The young woman felt trapped in a life she did not want.

"I will not ask you again."

Etta swallowed nervously. "I shall be a good girl." Her heart slammed against her chest, the beating of her heart echoing through her ears. Didn't Nanny Mae hear it too?

"Come with me," Nanny Mae said, placing a towel on the mattress. "I want you to lie down at the edge of the bed and spread your legs."

Etta made no attempt to move.

The nanny swatted her bottom and Etta jumped, climbing atop the mattress, lying back on the fresh clean towel.

"I said spread your legs." Nanny Mae guided Etta's thighs apart as she bent down and lathered the shaving soap all over her folds. "Vivian! Bring me a tub of warm water!" she commanded.

The same young woman with dark black hair who had been filling the bathtub poked her head into the bedroom. "Yes, of course, Nanny Mae." She reappeared a few minutes later bringing a sloshing bowl of water to the room.

Mae placed it on the bed and then glanced at Etta. "Be careful, little girl. You do not want to get burned."

Etta did not say a word. She lay there, practically holding her breath as the nanny dipped the razor in the warm water before dragging it slowly down between her thighs over the long, coarse blonde hair. Mae rinsed the hair and soap away before making a second stroke, her finger spreading apart Etta's folds to better see what she was doing. With caution, she worked on the outer folds first before making sure all the fuzz was long gone from Etta's most intimate region.

The young woman remained silent, afraid to move, fearful that Nanny Mae might just cut her out of spite for her actions. It was not as though Etta had been a model new student at the school. She'd ended up making the nanny clean the contents of the piss pot from the floor. If the tables were turned, it would certainly cross Etta's mind.

She shut her eyes and clenched the bed sheets, afraid to watch, not that she could see what was happening until it was done. Her position was unflattering at best.

The door opened and Philip locked eyes with Etta.
