Between domination and subservience exists a realm of sensual fantasy unlike any ever dreamed.
Marja was born a child of the fens, young, beautiful, and free. Her days were spent searching for bog iron for her poor family and communing with the spirits of the land who both guarded and guided her. But her contentment is broken when a man comes to her small village and buys her from her father.
The handsome Lexander is well-known as a procurer for the pleasure house of Vidaris, where Marja is to be schooled in the arts of seduction and carnal delight. Though frightened, Marja grows to love her master and discovers her nature as a true submissive. But when Lexander grants Marja her freedom, she discovers that not all are so kind. Like the warriors who care nothing for those they conquer-and show no mercy to those who oppose them.
Now, Marja must accompany a fallen noblewoman on a perilous journey to save the land that's so precious to them. And Marja will have to use all of her strength, skills, and cunning to survive in the war that is about to engulf them all.

A child of the fens, Marja spent her days running wild, searching for bog iron for the family, and talking with olfs--spirits of the land who helped and guided her and anyone else who acknowledged them. One day a beautiful man in a huge ship bought Marja from her father. The olfs liked Lexander, and Marja wanted new experiences, so she went willingly. But Lexander is a procurer for the pleasure houses near Vidaris, to which Marja is sent to become a pleasure-giver and is found to be that rara avis, a natural submissive. She falls for Lexander, and he for her, but at a tribal council, she is drawn into a political minefield that makes her run for her life. Used to being told what to do, she must call upon resources and skills she never knew she had to save herself, her land, and the noblewoman she accompanies. The olfs and Marja's sex slavery add a lot to a run-of-the-mill adventure, though a few characters are very well developed, too. Paula Luedtke
