Customer Reviews

The sex is explicit, but not nearly as graphic as in many M/M romances and it fits into the storyline.
Jem
The story also brings that time period to life and gives readers a small glimpse of what life was like for slaves and thrall.
Larena Hubble
Most of the story line is basically a filler in between the sex scenes, and even those sometimes fall flat.

This book surprised me. The synopsis made it sound like another medieval slave falls for his new master story. Nothing wrong with that, of course (I've enjoyed many such "romances"), but it never hurts to get more than you're expecting. The authors gave it a less common take which I enjoyed far more. New slave falls for the current slave! This makes the tale more believable for me, since a relationship based on coercion doesn't scream romance. I enjoyed the book from the start, but it really started to suck me in about a third of the way. The characters started to come alive off the page and I was suddenly immersed in their tale.

The setting is Britain, sometime during the Roman Empire. Wulfgar is a thane perusing his vassals, when he notes a particularly prosperous crofter who shorted him on his tithe. The crofter's son Aron steps forward to face the music, and the very real possibility that Wulfgar will burn his home down. Instead, Wulfgar offers a terrible choice - his family faces the winter with next to nothing, or he spends the next year as Wulfgar's thrall (something of an indentured servant). Accompanying the thane is Roman, a slave. Roman is something of a mystery - how did he come to be a slave when he is so obviously educated? Why does he seem to enjoy the attentions of the thane? As Aron becomes accustomed to his new role, he begins to ask these questions himself and in the process he rattles Roman to his core.

This is a romance, so the two fall in love, but the obstacles facing them go beyond the angst found in most M/M romances - though there is a fair share here too. Aron will have his freedom in a year while Roman faces a future of perpetual slavery without the one who stole his heart.

How to describe Bee Among the Clover? Now personally, I consider myself an M/M Romantic, meaning I love my main-men to share only between each other in the books I read. Not so much here.

Aron is tricked into a year of servitude as thrall to Wulfgar, little does he will become a bed slave to the large Lord. In comes Roman, the dark haired quiet and beautiful slave who cant help but feel empathy for Aron & his predicament. I have to say, the first night Aron must spend in Wulgar's bed made me a wreck. He's an athletic looking blond young man who is a "virgin" and his first night in Wulgar's castle he is basically rutted upon a drunk Wulfgar, we don't actually witness the coupling but instead 'hear it' from Roman's point of view who happens to be sleeping by Wulgar's bed.

After a long three weeks of the same thing, where Wulfgar has come to relish Aron's body in bed, he finds that despite a vigorous coupling Aron is still resisting him. He therefore invites Roman back into his bed for a threesome. Roman is intelligent, he wasn't a slave all his life as Aron had originally thought him to be he was in fact the son of a rich man who had found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. So besides being a bed slave to Wulfgar he also happens to deal with the dealings of important financial matters. He originally is glad at the fact that Aron has taken his place in Wulfgar's bed even if he is a little afraid that he might lose his Master's favor and lose his protection. But after their three-way Aron finds himself responding to Roman in a way he has never responded to Wulfgar and never will. They form a bond, despite Roman's distant attitude in the beginning. As Aron pursues Roman relentlessly they begin to form a bond, one that ultimately leads to love.

I love master/slave relationship, but without too much cruelty please. There is a freshness in this story as we have a new bed slave falling for the current bed slave (as Jem says), both ensnared by the same barbaric master. There is a good plot here and I enjoy the story in the beginning. However as the story progresses I find it a bit too wordy going round and round the same issues and misunderstandings between Aron and Roman. And it gets to be depressing as the angst and heartaches simply overwhelm. I could not enjoy it, finding myself exclaiming in frustration as another misunderstanding occur. Just too much "beating on the chests for these 2 men" in their journey to a HEA. Thankfully the writers have given us such a charming and delightful sequel in "Lotus in the Wild", which I strongly recommend.

Even between hearts meant for each other, the hidden pain, the unspoken hurt, can do far more damage than words spoken in anger. This thought is at the core of Ms. Sutherland and Ms. Labbe's engaging collaborative effort. Clashes of wills, of culture, and of perception drive a story of hopeless love, betrayal and, above all, miscommunication.

Set in early Britain at approximately the time when the Romans are beginning to consolidate their military power and, hence, are pulling out, this is a refreshing change from the majority of historicals, which take place post-1700. Having grown up on Rosemary Sutcliffe and attempts to place King Arthur in historical context, I was excited to see such a piece. Historicals are in the details, and this one does not disappoint. The mead hall and its fortifications are well drawn, the technology appropriate. One could smell the woodsmoke and male-dominated (mostly unwashed) air of the place. While it is debatable whether the Norse/Teutonic people had established kingdoms prior to the Roman withdrawal, I'm willing to allow the possibility since the rest of the scene setting is done so well.

Of the three principles, Roman is by far the most sympathetic. He has been the victim of a common practice of the time, forced into slavery as the result of a raid. While he is the son of a powerful family, he is intelligent and adaptable, and has carved a valuable place for himself in the thane, his owner's, household. His emotional scars run deep, though, and he has withdrawn into himself, unable, to large extent, to voice his desires and fears.

The thane, Wulfgar, is a powerful, rough-hewn warrior, just the sort to keep a bunch of rowdy Norsemen in line.
