GILLIAN M HART

BLADE'S GIRLS

GILLIAN M HART

Blade is surprised at the favour his Uncle Jasper asks. But it seems simple enough...
------------



SORU is a planet with two continents that stretch like ribbons around the north and south. Woodland is a country in Northcon. The week has 8 days, all months have 32 days, and a year 12 months. Years are reckoned BW [before wheels] or YW [in the year of the wheel] Many gods are worshiped. The most popular are the goddess and god of the tea break. The priests speak a secret language called Garbij.
. The cheap, common metal mockingly called "slave's copper" is also known as gold. Slaves are subjected to the barbaric practice of having their ears pierced.


Extract from "The Owner's Handbook on Slavery."


There are those that say the first woman, that a free man takes, should be an experienced slave who can guide him. Before he marries, it is good for his education to have broken at least one virgin slave, so that he may be less clumsy when he takes his free born virgin bride.”

 

Flint's Woman

Gillian M Hart

A romance set on a world called Soru, between a master and his slave.



SORU is a planet with two continents that stretch like ribbons around the north and south. Woodland is a country in Northcon. The week has 8 days, all months have 32 days, and a year 12 months. Years are reckoned BW [before wheels] or YW [in the year of the wheel] Many gods are worshiped. The most popular are the goddess and god of the tea break. The priests speak a secret language called Garbij.


Flint is a shy young man who is not good looking. His marriage of convenience collapses when his wife of a few months
deserts him. His employees, and friends Zakki and Zeb, persuade him to visit Nork's Inn, in order to lose his virginity.

When his father Merlin get's ill, his last request is for Flint to get an heir for the business. There is no need to marry, when one can buy slaves. Two days after Merlin dies, his son returns to the inn, hoping to see the slave called Slut 5. He buys her, although she is seriously ill.

The first sentence is not worded properly. Is Copper the name of a person or the mineral? I found out after that is the wife - should put a reference to her in the same sentence so we know who she is. Same thing with Bertha, who is she - not clear. Again I find out who they are after they are mentio... view book

Chapter One - This chapter has brilliant descriptions of the fishing village and Old Salt and is very picturesque. The advice on where it is safe to swim, sounds like the ideal place for me, as I do not feel safe if the water is much higher than my waist, having learnt late in life. I almost wish... view book
