Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester’s Steampunk World

Mistress Of The Air is a comic, Steampunk, erotic adventure. So, what inspired me to write a book set in a Steampunk world?

It started with the main character, Edwardian dominatrix Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester. She’s a character I had already featured in short stories and I always thought there was scope for a book based on her adventures. She possessed many Steampunk characteristics – a love for fine corsetry and nice afternoon teas in particular. In ‘Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester and the Automaton Horse’ (in Forbidden Fiction’s Of Passion and Steam) I placed her firmly in a Steampunk setting with a brass, clockwork horse designed to administer exquisite punishments to her submissive men.

Steampunk is a fun genre to write in. It’s a mash up of history and science fiction, combining a Victorian past with new technologies. It’s also a world where women play a prominent role – where it’s possible for a woman to be an engineer, automaton designer, an airship pilot, a business leader or an adventurer. Lady Sally fits perfectly into this world.

Steampunk offers lots of scope. The world building can be extremely sophisticated and deadly serious or it can be a lot of fun, containing bizarre characters and derring-do adventures. Mistress Of The Air definitely takes the comic route, offering a kinky and funny twist on the Steampunk genre but hopefully in a respectful and affectionate way. Lady Sally has an incorrigible, over-the-top personality. Mistress Of The Air grabs the classic Steampunk tropes and throws some kinky, femdom BDSM into the mix.

Naturally, Lady Sally has her own airship, ‘The Corseted Domme’ on which she travels across the Empires of Europe, dropping in to visit her aristocratic relatives and friends for afternoon tea. She has two brass automations: Clarissa, a co-pilot for her airship and Borghild, a sex-doll.

She has an array of electric and steam-powered sex-toys to test out on the select group of submissive gentlemen who accompany her on the journey. Amongst them is an electro-vibrator modelled on a genuine Victorian device, neatly illustrating the Steampunk mash-up of the historical and technological.

Not everything goes to plan though. Lady Sally has a tendency to upset people and she has to make some hasty escapes along the way. Y

You have been warned. There are wild escapades, kinky BDSM, dastardly devices, explosions and nice cups of tea. I hope you’ll join Lady Sally for the ride!

Book Blurb
Mistress of the Air is a Comic, Steampunk, Erotic Adventure.
Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester owns a brass mine in Zanzibar, a Lapsang Souchong tea plantation in China, a rubber tree farm in Malaysia, trunk loads of corsetry, and the country’s largest collection of antique whips and floggers.
Larger than life, and itching to find new and inventive ways to punish her submissive gentlemen, the Edwardian dominatrix has a vision. Embracing the spirit of the new age of aviation, she embarks on a series of adventures on her own airship, The Corseted Domme, with her transvestite maid, Victoria, her airship pilot, Captain Wyndham, and her automaton sex toy, Borghild.
A select group of submissive gentlemen, consisting of a duke, bishop, lawyer and banker, is invited to join Lady Sally so she can try out her new dastardly devices and sex toys on them. She whips, spanks and punishes her way across the Empires of Europe, dropping off to visit her aristocratic relatives and friends for afternoon tea.
But Lady Sally’s journey is not uneventful. War is threatening to break out and the Ministry of Aviation want to commandeer her airship for the war effort. And when The Corseted Domme has a crash landing, Lady Sally realises there is a stowaway on board intent on sabotaging her airship.
There will be wild escapades, kinky BDSM, dastardly devices, explosions and nice cups of tea.

Another flash of lightning filled the viewing window with a blinding white light.

“Oh, how exciting. This storm is quite turning me on!” Lady Sally exclaimed, ripping off the glass tube attachment and replacing it with a bullet-like brass fitting.

She turned the current down and the vibration up… right up high. She wriggled out of her satin knickers, plonking herself on her upholstered throne, desperate for release. The thunder rumbled… the lightning flashed… the brass object buzzed, as Lady Sally pressed it against her sex.

She rolled it over her cunt lips, then onto her clit, sending shock waves of erotic pleasure shooting through her.

The giant airship rolled and rollicked against the gale, tilting dangerously as it forced its way onwards, its tip penetrating the dark folds of cloud.

“Oh my god, madam. We’re going to crash!” wailed Victoria from under the rack.

Oblivious to the storm, indeed, in tandem with the storm, Lady Sally pushed the whirring, vibrating object up her crack. The pleasure of using her new device along with the wild excitement of the storm meant she was sopping. She moaned in pleasure in time to the rumbling thunder, and thrust the throbbing object deeper inside her with each lightning strike until she could hold back no longer, breaking into a long, satisfying orgasm.

“God, that was good!” she exclaimed after she’d recovered.

She stood up, unsteady on her feet both from the exertions of her climax and the airship which was listing from side to side.

It was at this point cook appeared. She was confronted with Lady Sally, crotch sopping with juices, breasts hanging out, dishevelled black hair, wild-eyed, and precariously balanced on stiletto ankle-boots, holding a vibrating brass bullet.

“I can’t go on like this your ladyship,” she grumbled. “I can’t do any baking with this ‘ere airship thing rolling from side to side. And me jelly moulds have fallen on the floor; I’m telling you milady, they’ll all be dinted now.”

Cook, being considerably shorter than her employer, was eye-level with Lady Sally’s bare tits.

“But it’s supper time, cook. I could murder a smoked salmon and cucumber sandwich.”

Cook crossed her arms and pulled a face, “A sandwich. You expect me to make sandwiches in these conditions.”

“Well yes, and a pot of tea as well, of course.”

There was another crack of thunder, followed at once by a flash of lightning. The airship listed sharply. Lady Sally tottered one way on her high heels but managed to keep her balance. The airship rolled to the other side. She teetered for a moment, then collapsed on top of cook, whose face became smothered in Lady Sally’s breasts.

She lay there for several minutes, cook crushed under her corset-clad body. The airship was still rolling from side to side with turbulence. Lady Sally had great difficulty pulling herself up, not being able to receive any assistance from her maid who was still a gibbering wreck underneath the rack. Eventually she heaved herself off the floor.

Cook gulped in a deep breath, “Oh my lord,” she exclaimed, “I’ve been suffocated by a pair of boobies!”

  1. The mix of old, and progress. The sumptuous costumes. The Old World mores. I love steampunk because it is so imaginative, and diverse!

    1. I certainly enjoyed writing in the genre Tamara. Like you I think the Steampunk aesthetic is great. I'm going to my first Steampunk event - the Crewe Steampunk Convivial - next week. I have an outfit based on what Captain Wyndham wears in the book - I even managed to get a blunderbuss off e-bay!

      From an author's point of view you can have a lot of fun with it and get away with pretty much anything - as Lady Sally does!
