Selena Kitt Reviews "Marianne! A Journey Round A Golden Sun" by Simon Lowrie

Marianne! A Journey Round A Golden Sun by Simon Lowrie

Marianne and Simon have been more than friends since they were kids, but when she meets Mark her whole life changes. It's not easy being spanked when you're not used to it, but although the two men in her life are rivals the one thing they agree on firmly is that Marianne needs her wild side taming. And once she's had a taste of what that kind of life can offer, she's no longer sure she wants to argue. She loves them both and means to have it all, but Mark is not the kind of man to share. He breaks the triangle and makes her choose, but at a cost to everyone - himself included. Can Sophie save the day? She isn't beautiful and dazzling like Marianne, and the special qualities she has aren't on the surface. Sophie is a quiet girl who accepts Simon's discipline with absolute humility and never one word of complaint. It's how she wants her world to be, and her love for him goes past all limits. Shy and gentle though she is, perhaps her resolve to heal two broken hearts will prove to be more powerful than all Mark's dominance and strength...

Simon Lowrie is the Jane Austen for the BDSM set. His British style and delightfully labyrinthine sentences are certainly reminiscent of the inimitable Ms. Austen, but the similarities don't stop there. Mr. Lowrie has Austen's respect and longing for a natural caste and order to the universe. Opposites may attract, but like also pairs with like, and in Marianne!, you find yourself pulled into a world far beyond Pride and Prejudice where men and women are drawn to one another based on their core characteristics. Just as we all knew Elizabeth was meant to be with Darcy, we instinctively sense that Marianne is meant for greater things than just her dear, devoted friend Simon. The relationships in this book unfold with the beauty, grace and delicate timing of a well-worth-the-wait bloom - indeed, reflecting the ultimate unfolding of Marianne herself. Hardcore BDSM fans won't find any sordid details here - but if you love the psychological aspect of the genre, the submission of a woman to her man, you have found a rare jewel in Marianne!
