Janette is an adorable, neurotic, highly moral and desperately shy American woman who has moved to Paris to escape from a traumatic past and an abusive mother. A chance encounter leads her into the arms of Gerald, a handsome, charismatic, and self-destructive man, who has a controversial influence on her. Gerald leads God-fearing Janette down an insane pathway which results in her almost prostituting herself. Janette struggles against Gerald when he asks her to do things well beyond her imagination, actions her morality would never accept. Will Janette find the resources to outplay the vile forces of an entire universe, larking in the mob-infested corners of the City of Lights as well as the dark places of her mind, to devore her integrity?
HER BODY IS HIS, AND HIS PASSION IS HERS. (A short story with tantalizing undercurrents of passion.)
Lonicera was born to a slave and raised as a slave. She believes that there is no place for love or happiness in her life due to her lowly station. She understands that her kind are sold off like any other commodity on Nihilist.
But when the day of her own sale comes, the man who buys her is not what she expects. He is nothing like the cold, brutal person she is supposed to service for the rest of her life. On the contrary, he is everything that everyone says she could never have.
Just who is her master, and why is he so drawn to her?
