    A powerful and emotional read

    A cocoon can be a refuge or a cage; the definition of which relies solely upon the butterfly within. That is the message of Butterfly Unpinned, a rousing and intricately woven story that paints a vivid portrait of the ways insecurities can tether, and in turn liberate, a person from a self-imposed imprisonment.

    Authors Bonnie Dee and Laura Bacchi have written a wonderfully poignant story of the loss of one's self and the journey to rediscovery. The material is well written and enhanced by beautiful landscapes, steamy sex, and a captivating romance. The story begins with "Butterfly", a young girl that turned to a master/slave lifestyle in order to escape the world which overwhelmed her. Her life is safe, routine, and hinges on one singular truth - she lives for no other purpose than to serve and please her master. Though content, Butterfly has begun questioning her choice to remain with a Master that views her wholly as a possession without any concern for her feelings or needs.

    Navajo woodworker Bryan Whitehorse Lapahie is a man eager to flee the life of poverty he left behind in Arizona, and a job offer from a wealthy client will see him well on his way. Remaining on the reservation of his childhood isn't something he's willing to consider. Scarred by the cruel words of a former lover, Bryan is spurred to become something other than a poor man living in obscurity.

    Bryan sees something in Butterfly the first time they meet inside her Master's enormous house, complete with three other willing and contracted slaves. He's enchanted by her above all, captivated by this submissive creature that has given herself over in servitude to another. When his curiosity intrigues and kindles Butterfly's own interest, she has to choose to stay caged in what has become a meaningless existence, or spread her wings and trust that Bryan will become the cocoon that envelops her in love and safety.
