Backlist Bogie--Installment 3: The Taming of Jaelle'n

The Taming of Jaelle’n by Deirdre O’Dare  Buy link:

The third erotic romance release for Deirdre came out in the last part of 2004. It was a novella length fantasy titled The Taming of Jaelle’n.  I had started it a year or more earlier but it originally did not quite jell up as I intended. After Karola’s Hunt was published, I went back to it while also working on The Rodeo Girls. For the first time ever I was going to go into a little bit of light bondage and discipline! I found it much more comfortable to set this in a strictly fantasy world rather than the real one.

Confession time: I‘m really totally not into any sort of BDSM in my personal life, not even the most light and semi-playful kind. It really creeps me out! This goes back to some childhood
matters perhaps but anyway, that’s reality. So writing about it was a challenge. About then was when Deirdre began to develop as a personality apart and separate from both Gwynn Morgan and the ‘real’ person behind the pseudonyms. I had already decided that my heroine in this tale was a princess from a semi-Celtic type people far to the north who is captured by slavers and sold in a desert empire far away. So what else will happen?

She rebels by a stoic calm against the unpleasant and demeaning things that happen to her. As long as her captors are rough and a bit brutal, her temper and pride can carry her through. Then she is purchased by an exotic and mysterious man who is said to be a trainer and purveyor of gorgeous women for sex slaves. His techniques of that ‘training’ are far more subtle and our princess finds them harder and harder to resist despite her vow to hold aloof. Then to her horror and dismay she begins to realize she is falling for her master! That’s the premise of The Taming of Jaelle’n.

Here is the blurb for this story. An excerpt will follow separately. 
Taken captive and sold into slavery, Princess Jaelle'n has to make some swift adjustments in her attitude to survive. She is bought by a gorgeous but arrogant man who vows he can make her and a score of other female captives into prime pleasure slaves in one phase of the moon! Although she is determined to fight his efforts at taming and training her with all her hatred and will, his virile mastery proves irresistible. She eventually must succumb to the overwhelming attraction and lets herself start to love Aguilar only to learn she'll be sold again…
In spite of this new heartbreak, can she use her newly developed skills to tame a new master?
Set in an exotic world just a bit like ours may once have been, The Taming of Jaelle'n explores the fascinating physical and emotional byplay between two strong characters and the question of who will ultimately tame whom...
