Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Grimm’s Hansel and Gretel and Homer’s The Odyssey get a kinky makeover in this collection full of dominance and submission, bondage and beatings. Miranda loves to submit to her forbidden lover, Caliban, but she wields a power of her own and together she and Caliban turn the bedraggled prince Ferdinand into their plaything. Young lovers Hansel and Gretel are lured to the witch’s house, where Hansel finds himself chained and caged ready to be used in the coven’s midsummer ritual, but Gretel takes on the witch at her own game. Penelope has survived the long years of her husband Odysseus’ travels with the help of her 12 beloved handmaidens, but one of the 108 suitors who vie for her hand in marriage proves his true devotion.Thoughts on Miranda's Tempest: A short, nicely naughty collection of dominance themed stories with a classic twist. Miranda and Caliban love in secret until they bring Ferdinand into their group. I loved how excited Miranda got when Caliban was dominating Ferdinand. Very sexy.
Hansel learns how much he craves being dominated by a strong woman when the wicked witch forces him to do things he'd only ever dreamed about. Meanwhile, Gretel bursts out of her shell to save her man. But not before pushing his boundaries a bit. Hansel's fall into sub-space was sexy. Gretel turned out to be good with a whip. Both of them appear to enjoy these new sides of themselves they've uncovered.
Penelope has to get rid of her suitors before her husband returns from the dead. With the help of a goddess, she finds a rather ingenious way. As an added bonus, she ends up with a devoted servant who allows her many liberties. I have to admit, I liked Leontes and his ability to withstand the test.
Female dominants aren't usually my thing but I enjoyed this set. It was sexy and darkly naughty while being entertaining.
