Two spectacular short stories from Vina Green. One BDSM-centric, another sapphic. Whilst this may seem like a strange mix of genres, both stories are tied together with both the common theme of employer/employee romance and the bittersweet nonpareil of Vina's writing.
The Copper Horse:
When a young student accepts a summer job, cleaning for a sophisticated and reclusive older man, she could never have anticipated the path down which her body and mind will take her as he tests her submission to its limits. He loves the smell of leather, and she loves to give him what he wants. Pain and pleasure collide in this subtle story about lust, longing and power play.
A young woman learns to unlock her own pleasure and fulfil the desires of another when she enjoys her first lesbian encounter - with her employer. Their forbidden romance reaches an unexpected climax in this short coming of age story set within the sweet confines of an apple orchard.
