Overview

Unexpectedly widowed, Gabrielle, an affectionate but sexually inexperienced author/historian, turns for emotional support to her late husband's closest friend, a courtly cosmopolite who radiates masculine appeal. When Michael reveals that he desires a slave willing to exist solely for his pleasure, his shocking invitation resonates on some gut level within the woman married for fourteen years to a man afflicted by periodic bouts of impotence. Gabrielle agrees to let Michael spirit her away to a retreat where he subjects her to a rigorous regimen designed to teach her to welcome the infliction of pain during sexual encounters. To achieve that purpose, Michael employs a variety of electronic devices that stimulate nerves to feel pain, but cause no injury. Determined to annihilate Gabrielle's will without breaking her spirit, the master of erotic art subjects his slave to a complex regimen incorporating constant stimulation of all sorts, including fear, pain, pleasure, and violent physical exertion. Michael conditions Gabrielle not only to submit and obey, but also to crave the pain he combines with intense, breathtakingly erotic stimulation, so as to lift her to astonishing heights of ecstasy. Having successfully completed her probationary period, Gabrielle accompanies Michael to a new retreat, where she learns that he is a member of the Order of the Black Lily, a mysterious brotherhood of men who share both a stern code of honor, and singular tastes in sensual pleasure. Just as the initiate rejoices in having learned how to please her demanding master, a magnetically appealing stranger enters her life as Michael's guest. Raoul levies a bold demand, which an old vow renders Michaelobligated to grant. Raoul asks that he be invited to join Michael in enjoying his slave, and that Gabrielle be allowed to choose freely on the following day whether to stay with her current master, or leave with a new owner. Hiding his mental agony, Michael agrees. Both virile, dominant lovers strive with all their skill at erotic art, all their compelling mastery, to win the slave's permanent favor. The two members of the mysterious Order jointly conduct the ritual whereby the initiate rises to the rank of adept. Ever more emotionally distraught at the thought of having to choose between these two cruel but fascinating masters, Gabrielle achieves a startling new insight into her own sensual nature that enables her finally to resolve the dilemma tormenting her. Although this novel stands alone, it forms one of three works describing the erotic adventures of members of the Order of the Black Lily: Gabrielle's Awakening, Evolution of an Affair, and Eternal Triangle. The latter two books will soon be published by Double Dragon Publishing, Inc.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Warm fog swirled around the woman in the shower. The forceful spray set the nerve-endings in her skin tingling. The hot water coursing down her nude flesh induced a feeling of hedonistic abandonment. Groping for the control, she turned off the barrage of droplets, and lathered her upper body with fragrant soap. Sudsy rivulets coursed down smooth white skin, mimicking caressing finger-strokes tracing sinuous curves. Beguiled into dwelling on their slow, sensuous descent, Gabrielle cupped a firm breast in one hand, and soaped the soft skin beneath it. Her thumb inadvertently brushed the nipple, sending tantalizing impulses racing down hypersensitive nerves. A foam-finger insinuated itself between her thighs, riveting her attention on the most intimate part of herself.

Yielding to an irresistible urge, the bather slid a palm between legs that without conscious volition, she spread wide apart. Little gusts of breath hissed between delicately bowed lips that parted to accommodate their expulsion. Employing her right hand as her left still cupped a breast and teased the nipple, she massaged the clit swelling now with need, even as the image of the man due to arrive shortly took surreally clear form in her mind. Hot, sticky essence erupted into the cunt into which three fingers avidly dipped before continuing their vigorous manipulation of the now lavishly lubricated organ of pleasure.

    Highly Recommended

    I read this book a few years ago, when it was first available on the author's web page. Loved reading it, and it started me on looking for more erotica. The charaters are great, but if you have read anything else of hers, she uses the same phases for all her charaters. But the story is great and the would love to see her expand on the Black Lily.

    I do not usually review books but iI feel like I needed to let f

    I do not usually review books but iI feel like I needed to let future readers know something that I wish I had known. This might sound rude but if im reading an erotic novel, I picture two adults anywhere between 25-35 just because i feel like thats a mature age range and i personally at 23 find some 35 year old men attractive. However, the main female character in this book is 50!! What? And the main male character is descriped as being "anywhere between 40 and 60" - oh my. Now trust me I get that people that age hve sex. Im not saying that i think itw gross for two people that age having s but for me that little description completely turned me off of the book. I couldnt stop thinking about my parents - who are 50 and 60 - and no one likes thinking about their parents having sex.
