When Captain Devereaux, a British Army officer, is posted to Hindustan, he leaves behind his wife and young child. This parting does not leave him lonely for long, however, and he quickly begins a sexual relationship with Lizzie Wilson, the wife of another British officer. But when Captain Devereaux meets Colonel Selwyn, his wife, and three young daughters Amy, Mabel and Fanny, he becomes entranced by the girls—Fanny in particular—and soon begins schooling all three of the Colonel’s daughters in the ways of erotic love—a lesson they are more than happy to learn.
Purportedly autobiographical, Venus in India (or Love Adventures in Hindustan) was written under the pseudonym Charles Devereaux. The author’s real identity has never been confirmed.
