THE PRINCE AND THE NUN. [BookStrand Menage and More: Erotic historical romance, multiple sex partners, M/F, F/F/M, sex slaves] It is war time and Sister Therese is torn between her vows and the people she loves. She is trying to keep the handsome Prince Mefist at arm's length and at the same time protecting her friends. Villagers, partisans, refugees, and Jews all come to her for help and she cannot refuse. Only by cooperating with the Prince can she and the sisters survive. And if that means running a bordello for the Army officers, then that is what she will do. But it is not easy to resist Mefist, and as the two of them struggle to hold back a violent world, he becomes a friend and more. *** "Would you surrender your chastity to protect your friends? I probably would, but what would it feel like? Would I feel diminished by the sacrifice? Would I even enjoy throwing off the chains? That is the choice Therese must make. With the handsome Prince Mefist on one side and helpless villagers on the other, she is out of options." ~ Jacqueline ~ ***
4 Stars: "This tale is set in the fictional castle Montebello somewhere in Europe around 1940, when war breaks out. The castle is seized by the Imperial Army, headed by Prince Mefist who decides to use Montebello because of its strategic location. Prince Mefist soon demands the younger nuns for the officers' bordello and forces Therese (Mother Superior Therese) to choose between giving in to his demands or he will seize women from the local village. Therese resigns to the inevitable and assumes her new position of Madam, thus ensuring her continued support of the nuns. Though soon enough Therese finds she is falling under the spellof the Prince.
You will need to keep an open mind when reading this story about a group of nuns who become prostitutes. This book is one of the more controversial erotic novels I've read recently [and] offers another outlook on the oldest profession, with a twist! Although at times Prince Mefist and his sister, Wanda, are blasâ€ about what is forced on these nuns, I still found this story kept me interested to discover the fate of these women. It was well written and it displayed emotional depth and character development, as well as the differing viewpoints of the various characters.
The author does not intentionally set out to titillate the readers. The [book] is interesting and there are some very HOT moments with some very tasteful scenes. The premise offered here is that this may be a situation born out of the necessity of war; these women simply have no other choice. This book also centers on the story of Therese's sexual awakening through Mefist and his sister, Wanda. With their help Therese is awakened to a life of deep sensuality, but also craving intimacy from the man she loves, Mefist. Prince Mefist is a charismatic, handsome, and debonair character who easily manipulates but also treats people under his charge with care and kindness. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book." -- Aggie Tsirikas, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
...Although this novel can be classified as very erotic, it is erotic in all of the good meanings of the word. It is not disturbing in any way, and in fact, Jacqueline relates to what we know we all feel, but are sometimes too uncomfortable to speak of. But that is how she really pulls you in to this story, because her characters are sincere and convincing as being uncertain and a bit frightened, as well.<BR/><BR/>The setting for the story was perfect, a mysterious old castle, with many secrets holed up within. A cold winter atmosphere that tends to bring people closer together. This tale was actually very historical and interesting, and as such, I was glued to it for two days during any of my down time.<BR/> <BR/>...This was a wonderful read, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a naughty side, even if that may mean one that is secretly tucked away.<BR/>Jennifer Bullard, Philadelphia <BR/><BR/>The finest thing I have read, combining history, characterization & erotica--believable erotica--in decades. The characters are fine, the plot is excellent, the good guys believable without being insipid, the bad guys abominable without being demonic. The story line gives insight into aspects of the period I had never known before and hardly suspected. Higher praise I don't think I could find for a literary work. <BR/>Jane Gallion, literary editor & authorWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
