connie’s review on the novel: “Sold into Slavery” by Claire Thompson
This book, based on the very real horrors of slave trafficking ..
One of the main characters, Leah, was a young American woman vacationing in Thailand.. Leah, just recently broken up with her Master/Owner – struggling to cope with her “release” of being an owned slave girl – and even still, wearing a slave locket/collar around her throat.
Leah, meets an EnglishMan “Devin”, and they instantly *click*, spending the night together — Devin, a Dominant, was drawn to her – and realized as soon as He looked at the locket/collar.. that she must be in the lifestyle. Leah and Devin spend the night together, sharing common interest in BDSM. A dream come true for them both..!!
They promise to meet the next evening…
Leah is then abducted the next morning while shopping — and held captive by a sadistic Master/Prince in a compound that holds many other slaves/owned property.
Devin begins his search of his new found submissive, Leah.
Abduction – forced into slavery of a Sadistic Man — a sub and Dominant meeting and “clicking instantly” to the point where the Dominant will stop at nothing to find His girl.
Sounds like a hot fantasy to S/some.
For my own tastes, the book was quite tame – but well written. It took me less than 24 hours to read. I purchased the book on Amazon, for a little less than $10 (American).
I did however, find a quote that I really liked, regarding submission:
“Submission is not about weakness, but rather about courage.. the courage to recognize and embrace what and who you are at the very core of your being.”
I would be lieing if that did not strike a nerve with me. However, i am submissive so – of course it would.
I don’t want my blog post to give away the ending .. if this sounds like something you would enjoy – it’s a fairly good read (7 out of 10 on the ‘connie must-read scale!).
