The thrill of forbidden attractions and the thin, hot line between power and obedience are explored in this collection of sizzling fantasies by the author of One Dark Night.
It starts off in the year 878, with Elen of Godeuart, a brave Saxon, briefly holding off Viking marauders, led by the fierce Ivar. Her courage makes Ivar all the more determined to enslave Elen, and his methods turn out to be very exciting. In the second story, set in the present, Diane Sullivan is about to spend seven days on the Rhine for $10,000, as one of many naked female servers on The Carnal Voyage. This puts her in a decidedly submissive position with her archenemy, Gareck Ennis, pro football quarterback and the bane of her high school existence. And in the final story, lawyer Nancy Lombardo finds herself catapulted into the future, where an eight-foot, 500-pound shapeshifter is determined to teach her new ways. Ginger Curwen
