Book Description

Although she has prepared for it for years, Ielle finds herself thrust into the world of the Hausa of Janos. Kyr is one of the most powerful men on her world and he has chosen her for his owned property. They must learn to build their life together while ferreting out the assassin that lives in their midst.

An erotic otherworldly tale of dominant males and the submissives they own. This is not the typical BDSM story, rather, it is an explicit romance of lust and passion found at the feet of the master.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable. It is intended for an adult audience.

(approximately 210 pages, 47,000 words)

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Story of O" meets "A Game of Thrones" April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Here is the short and the sweet of it: if you're looking for a sexy, well-written tale that cleverly combines elements of High Fantasy with classic Literary Erotica steeped in themes of female submission, stop reading this review right now and immediately download Andre SanThomas' "Ielle." You won't be disappointed.

Likewise, if you're a stickler for issues of spelling, grammar and formatting, fear not. This book is clearly the product of an author who cares enough to have her work well edited and proofed. You may proceed with confidence, though you may also wish to stop reading my review at this point.

In fact, I am reluctant to be too critical of this book. Writing of such high quality is rarely ever found in the erotica section, and needs to be encouraged. At her glorious best--certainly in the first three chapters of this novel-- Andre SanThomas achieves a seemingly effortless fluidity; a luminous web of language that enthralls and delights. She has a certain gift for description, occasionally approaching the ingenious; a few words chosen with exquisite economy conjure powerful images; the similes subtly integrated so as not to interrupt narrative momentum with clunky "this thing was like that thing" digressions. Writing such as this is a pleasure to read in any genre, and ought to be celebrated.

All this being said; the novel is too long, perhaps by as much as a third, suffering from unnecessary and occasionally inartistic repetition. This is more obvious at the structural "macro" level, where some scenes are repeated, often with exactly the same words and actions, in slightly different settings. Was this intentional; a kind of homage to certain High Fantasy genre conventions?

5.0 out of 5 stars This fantasy fan was impressed August 27, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not generally a reader of erotica, but I have read my fair share of fantasy literature, and I have to say this was an excellent book. The plot kept my interest going, the characters were likable in their own way, and I found the setting quite intriguing, a world outwardly dominated by men sexually but where women had their own forms of power through submission or seeming submission.

The sex scenes were written well and with taste. I almost laugh writing that because it's not necessarily what one expects concerning bondage scenes, but I have to say it's true in this case.

Erotica readers should check out this book and the whole Janos series. Fantasy fans, even those who aren't into erotica, will also find plenty here to enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Between the skins May 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would preface this review as saying I have never read from the erotica genre before and I did not know what to expect. I thought my impression would be a flat story simply filled with sexual encounters. Much to my surprise I encountered a fully written, well thought-out story with nearly flawless prose. Andre SanThomas' descriptions throughout are a testament to her talents as an author. She has placed in the reader's hands a polished example of what erotica should be. I would think those who are regular readers of this genre would be more than satisfied.

Although the story held my interest as a plot, I thought the beginning of the story could have held more action outside of the bedroom which would have let characters develop at a faster pace. A little more action in the beginning could have developed the plot sooner. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful book and readers of this genre would be fools to pass it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Piece of Escapism April 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed Ielle. The worldbuilding was unobtrusive and believable, I loved the title character and her sexy master, Kyr. The sex was hot, and although frequent, I never got bored with it (which tends to happen with me). I loved that the MC behaved like a true submissive. I'm so burnt out on the resistant-submissive archetype.

4.0 out of 5 stars well written erotica July 15, 2013
By M. Mays
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this erotic novel. I will be purchasing the other novels in the series.

Obviously written with a level of care and detail not often seen in novels or novellas of this genre, this story features an engaging plot and in-depth characterization which were both complemented by the erotic elements of the story, rather than being overshadowed by them.

The story was an engaging mix of mystery, erotica, and romance. It is reminiscent of the society structure of the Gor novels by John Norman except that this novel is actually well written and definitely worth reading!

More About the Author

André SanThomas writes stories about gloriously submissive females at the feet of delightfully dominant men. She spins a world where women can choose to submit or choose to walk away.

As a seat of the pants writer, there is no telling where her characters may take her once they come to life on the page. Wherever it is, she is destined to go, providing only suggestions and guidance, following their lead. That may take her to high-rise in a major metro area, or a mansion on a mountaintop, or even to another world where women are owned as property. Whatever the setting, the common thread is the relationship between the characters and the lust and passion they explore.

André can be reached at or you can visit her blog at The Realm of Janos email list is available at
