Listening time for The Horse Mistress: Book 1 (The Horse Mistress #1) by R. A. Steffan is 6 hours, 11 minutes.
R. A. Steffan is a new to me author. and I enjoyed listening to The Horse Mistress: Book 1 (The Horse Mistress #1). This novel contains many elements to it. It's historical fiction with elements of erotica, paranormal, and lgbt themes as well. I thought the story and characters were well developed and well written. I'd also like to add that Gwendolyn Druyor is a wonderful narrator, which always makes a book more enjoyable to listen to!
The following is a plot summary for The Horse Mistress: Book 1 (The Horse Mistress #1) by R. A. Steffan from Audible:
Carivel was born female, but she has been secretly living as a boy for years in her adoptive village of Draebard. The last thing she needs is to fall for not one but two unattainable men - a dominating warrior and a reluctant wolf-shifter with a horrific past. Now the Alyrion Empire is poised to invade, and Carivel must choose whether to keep her secret or reveal it - not only to the men she loves but also to the powerful female ruler whose army could help protect Draebard during the coming war.
Steamy and spellbinding, The Horse Mistress, Book 1 combines detailed world building and a heartfelt romance between three noble, damaged people who have no one to turn to but each other.
Author's note: This book contains descriptions of graphic sex, including sex between men, sex with multiple partners (MMF), and elements of fully consensual BDSM within a loving, established relationship. Additionally, it deals with issues of gender identity and gender fluidity. It is intended for a mature audience.I am giving The Horse Mistress: Book 1 (The Horse Mistress #1) by R. A. Steffan a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars. I am not sure I'll read the rest of the novels in the 'Horse Mistress' series even though I enjoyed the first book in the series quite a bit.
Until my next post, happy reading!
