Amanda Nightingale is an agent with British Intelligence.
Born Amanda Rosemarie Hastings, she married the dashing and handsome Guy Nightingale. They looked to have an idealic if sedate life ahead of them but the War intervened and Guy headed off to fight while Amanda remained at home and chose to serve in FANY, the First Aid Nursing Yeomancy. Because of her dedication and her station in life, she quickly rose in rank to that of Commander in the organization, equivilant to that of Major.
When the call went out, secretly of course, for volunteers to work in the Special Operations Execution (S.O.E.) behind enemy lines to gather intel for the upcoming D-Day invasion of the Continent, Amanda stepped forward and was selected along with three men from far differing backgrounds.
Time was short, training was scant, the intelligence needed urgently, and the group parachuted into occupied France with Amanda taking the cover of an innocent schoolteacher named Yvette. The innocence part was not going to last long because her arrival is noticed and she is taken prisoner and her life will change drastically.
Over time and the course of five recorded adventures, Nightingale will go on to first be awarded the highly prestigious George Cross, given to those who "perform deeds of the highest valor outside the conventional battle lines" and that last phrase definitely describes her exploits. She will also, shortly after the end of the War, run for Parliament and win easily for the region of Northminster.
But along the way will be the most horrendous, disgusting, degrading series of horrific rapes, torture, bondage, and sadism that one could ever imagine. And the victim of all these terrible events is Amanda Nightingale. And though she will come to hate her oppressors and will exact her revenge many times, she also learns how much she enjoyed it.
