Prior to the events of Jane Eyre, Grace Poole is drawn into the mystery surrounding her employer’s marriage as she becomes sexually entangled with both the dark, enigmatic Mr. Rochester and his virgin wife in a multifaceted affair  that pushes the boundaries of consent.

Nineteen-year-old Grace Poole knows the unspoken rules of Victorian society.

It is the right of the nobility to act as their desires dictate, a luxury denied to those who serve them. Grace, however, refuses to be bound by her station; from the moment she begins her employment at Thornfield Hall, she seduces footmen and maids alike, even as she wonders when the elusive Mr. Rochester will return home and demand from her that which all masters invariably do.

Bertha Rochester is the dark, voluptuous, and shockingly innocent mistress of Thornfield.

Under the orders of her absent husband, she is kept pampered and isolated in her third floor rooms. The servants whisper about the young mistress who, despite her married status, remains a virgin.

The temptation to seduce her mistress is one which Grace cannot resist, yet love is an indulgence she can ill afford.

She attempts to master her feelings as she initiates Bertha into her world of wanton, dark desire in which consent is dubious and morality relative. Unwilling to allow love to make her weak, Grace continues her seduction of the household’s servants, with no regard for Victorian propriety, as part of her plan to free both women from the tyranny of the master of Thornfield. Her scheme culminates in a decadent orgy calculated to provoke the still-absent Mr. Rochester.

The full ramifications of that night, however, will not be felt until Rochester returns to Thornfield.



Bertha lowered her head, but her eyes never left Grace’s. She saw the love and the desire; it made her even more certain of her actions.

“He says I can never be touched in that way. That I am evil and it will ignite dark demons inside me.” Bertha’s head was still lowered.

Grace took her face in her hands and raised it up and pulled it close to hers. “He is the evil one, my sweet little thing. He denies you what is your right as a woman and a wife, so we will take his rights and that will just be the start of it.”

Bertha was trembling, her eyes wide and afraid. “What are you going to do? Oh Grace, he is the master; he is a man. We are just women."

Publisher’s Note: The Bluebird and the Devil is a 12,000 word Victorian erotic short. Book one of three in a trilogy. Contains explicit heterosexual and lesbian sex as well as an orgy involving bisexual women and straight men. A dark Gothic tale with elements of sexual violence, this is not Charlotte Brontë’s Mr. Rochester.
