An American reader has posted a five-star review of BETRAYAL on today. It is here.

I am absolutely delighted that what is possibly my favorite book of all time has travelled so well across the pond. I appreciate it so much when people take the trouble to post reviews.


October 20, 2014

In February of this year, renowned novelist Christopher Fowler wrote an article about Margaret’s THE WAITING DARKNESS. The article also appeared in the Independent on a Sunday. Please click the link below to learn a little more about Margaret's early days as a writer, and one book in particular.


Novels are divided into classes. There are the intellectual exercises, the grand style experiments, the century-wide statements of the human condition, some readable, some not, many of which win academic prizes. And there are books that can speak truths although they aim for a middle market of readable, nicely written stories that sell.

This is the story of Margaret Bingley.

Eroticism and domination abound! , 8 April 2008
By K. J. Beverstock (London)
Frederica Alleyn is definitely one of the best erotic fiction writers ever!. Great story with believable characters, you find yourself completely embroiled in their erotic and passionate sexual escapades. I read it when it was first published and have just bought it again and can't wait to receive it. I would recommend that readers who enjoy this genre check out her other books. S&M lovers will particularly enjoy!

Now being reissued to mark the 15th Anniversary of Black Lace
Cassandra's Conflict


To help celebrate '15 years of groundbreaking erotica', in March 2008 Virgin Books is reissuing CASSANDRA'S CONFLICT , one of the Black Lace series.

CASSANDRA'S CONFLICT created quite a stir when it became one of the first four Black Lace releases in 1993.

Black Lace publisher Kerri Sharp knows all about female fantasies. ...Erotic fiction is still rude, but its history has changed. Once the sole domain of male writers, it is now subsumed by the female imagination, and that imagination is purveying that most manly of concepts - sex without emotion. The Black Lace heroine has sex for the sake of it. Sex without commitment. Sex without babies. Sex on Hampstead Heath.

Sharp...oversaw the first four [Black Lace] books, one of which, Cassandra's Conflict [by Margaret Bingley. writing as Fredrica Alleyn] , ignited a furore that ensured the success of the Black Lace series. The tale featured a sadomasochistic relationship, a dark master, a new nanny and an atmosphere of non-consensuality at a time when it was not clearly understood that the rape fantasy was about being overcome by a man of the mind's choice, rather than an actual desire to be maimed by some thug out of a drain in Hackney.

'There was a lot of humiliation and violation in it,' says Sharp. 'And everyone went mad, saying, "How dare you imply that women want to be hurt during sex" and so on. The Daily Mail accused me of "corrupting the morals of the nation's women and betraying civilised values". The result was that they all sold out within a week.'
