Closing The Circle
By Jeanette Stevens
Tales of the Slave Girl Edition
Love You Divine
When the wise woman of the tribe saves a warrior from being killed, she takes him to her home and heals his wounds. Then she makes him her slave. Making the brave warrior stoop to do menial tasks that he considers women’s work, Naimh further humiliates him by making him dress in women’s clothing. Barra resists her at first, but her power is too strong for him to overcome, and he finally relents and serves the woman in all the backbreaking work she assigns him. When Naimh tends to his sore muscles and the ministrations take a sexual turn, Barra is confused by her intentions. As the two come to know one another, Barra learns of the secret Naimh has been keeping, but will she allow her slave to serve her in ways that can only bring ecstasy and fulfillment to them both?
This is another treat from Jeanette Stevens. I truly enjoyed this story about a strong woman who is sure of her power and her place in the universe, and yet is vulnerable and must learn to trust even as she demands another trusts in her. As the story unfolds and the journey both Naimh and Barra are taking in their different roles, the reader is drawn into the psyche of both people. You will find yourself rooting for them as they learn to trust one another, learn form one another, and teach one another the true depths of love. Don’t miss reading this one.
