The Immoral Trilogy, by Arla Dahl

Made for the author, Arla Dahl
The Mark, Book 1
Be this a witch?

In 1600’s New England, it was decreed thus: "Whoever lies with the beast will bear a mark that is insensible and in their most secret parts, and may be located only through diligent and careful search." 

Accused of witchcraft, Abigail Prescott must strip for the masses and submit to the Governor’s inspection. She is ill-prepared for this shameful, grueling probe as it permits him to see and test her every inch and every hollow. 

Governor Jameson Foster has examined many before, but Abigail enchants him like no other. Before he succumbs to her sweet charms, he must uncover the dark truth of this bewitching. 

Should she feel his prodding and respond to his touch, her innocence will be proven. And this night he will claim her. Should she resist, fail to cry out in pain or in pleasure, then all will know she is a witch who bears The Mark.

There is no shame in pleasure. 

“Wherefore for the sake of fulfilling their lusts (women) consort even with devils.” -Heinrich Kramer, 1486 “Malleus Maleficarum” (The Hammer of Witches) 

To clear their names and save their souls the accused are stripped and bound before all as they await their governor’s examination. 

At the governor’s direction, Abigail Prescott, herself accused as a witch a mere hour past, will help test the women’s responses, for a witch marked by the devil cannot feel, no matter how gently caressed, no matter how deeply probed. Under the governor’s scrutiny Abigail is to thoroughly examine their naked flesh for the black mark of the beast. 

But the prideful Elizabeth Hobbs withdraws consent. And her fate is sealed. Taken deep into the forest by the watchman, she will remain naked and open to the elements to await her punishment. 

Stirred by her proud tears, the watchman touches her. Soothes her. But when a man succumbs to a witch’s charms, he too stands among THE ACCUSED

The Watchman, Book 3

"For when those in authority neglect to reprove sin, then very often the good are punished with the wicked." - Heinrick Kramer, 1486  The Malleus Maleficarum

By yielding to the proud tears of an accused witch, The Watchman's soul may have been touched by evil. Now he must stand bare before the governor, and submit to a thorough and shameful examination.

Though Giles Scott would resist the touch of another man's hands, it is through complete abandon that his innocence might be proven. Since it is only the witch who cannot feel, only Giles' arousal can spare him and another from the the noose. And so, he surrenders.

Yet screams from another chamber - perhaps pained, perhaps pleasured - awaken his fears from his youth, and the governor's touch no longer teases but stings, much like the punishing bite of a whip against the flesh of The Watchman.
