Kurzbeschreibung

Roman, a slave to Wulfgar, is less than pleased when the thane acquires a new pet: the beautiful and prideful Aron. Aron has never been with a man and has no wish to be now, but when he is claimed as a thrall to pay his father's debt, his choice in the matter is lost.

Captured from Roman-held Londinium four years prior, Roman has learned that life as Wulfgar’s bedslave can still be sweet. He is intrigued, threatened, and ultimately frightened by Aron and his feelings for the young man as they are thrown together by both cunning plan and charmed circumstance.

Roman and Aron will form a bond greater than any other claim upon them and determine that whatever the cost, they will find a way to be happy—even if that means risking their lives to find freedom together.

5.0 von 5 Sternen lovely romance 8. März 2010
Von Jem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
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. Though Aron and Roman are the main characters, Wulfgar's role is more than just master. He plays an important role in the romance, and his character is completely three-dimensional. In fact, all three are fully realized, and likeable (even the thane!). They are realistic for their time and setting. The plot is well developed, with some of the usual themes, but also unlikely twists and even a slight supernatural element. There is a fair amount of sex (they are both bed slaves after all), but I wouldn't classify this as erotic romance. The sex is explicit, but not nearly as graphic as in many M/M romances and it fits into the storyline. The authors spend a lot of time building the relationship between Roman and Aron, and there was a lot of character development. Overall, it was an excellent novel that I am grateful is available in print. I can't wait for the sequel, "Lotus In The Wild" when it is available this spring. Highly recommended!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Delight, but a tad bit Long 10. Oktober 2010
Von Lorettasilks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
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.
But things are not easy, Roman is a slave forever to be under Wulfgar's command, and Aron cannot see himself chained for so long even as his year of servitude is just beyond his grasp. Things turn dangerous when a guard has only bad intentions towards Roman wanting to make him submit as revenge. When Aron decides he cannot continue being chained to Wulfgar Roman makes a dangerous choice, to help him escape. Yet things only begin to escalate after that, as the two lovers will share the burdens, the hurt, the betrayals, the punishments--trying to come together with their love and freedom intact.

I have to say that "Bee Among the Clover" is so erotic, the authors understand the nature of lust and sex and its very sexy. Roman and Aron were a joy. Wulfgar, who would have been considered the "bad guy" is really not, we actually have another villain. Wulfgar just happens to have a penchant for beautiful young men and a lust and drive that wont quit. What did bother me was towards the end, where Roman who has gained his freedom must sleep every night through the couplings of Wulfgar and Aron because Aron must continue to serve Wulgar until his year is up, which I personally found a little distasteful. The idea of introducing "magic" towards the end in the figure of Cate is also a little too much, I wish the authors could have found a way to omit that and figure out another way to resolve things. The story did get a little repetitive and dare I say...a little boring/long? But great concept and great writing, I would recommend this story to M/M fans, but I thought it better to warn all that even if this does come with a happy ending and Aron and Roman come together in the end, there is a lot of sex scenes where either these two have sex, these three have sex or its an Aron and Wulgar session.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good plot but the angst is overwhelming, could not enjoy it... 3. Mai 2010
Von R.Parklane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
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.

Von LAS Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Originally Posted at: [...]

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. He keeps slaves but it was common practice at the time, throughout most of Europe. It's quickly made clear to the reader that while he has a temper, Wulfgar is not an evil man. He expects the people beholden to him to deal with him honestly, he tries to be just, and he does try, in his own way, to take care of Roman and to please him. And, let's face it, as the dominant force in the bedroom, he's darn sexy.

The last male in this interesting triad is more problematic. Aron is a selfish, arrogant brat. I'm sure there are readers who would disagree with me, but the more I turned the story over, the more I reached that conclusion. Roman's inability to express himself certainly led to misunderstandings, but it is Aron's need to have what he wants, now, without consequences, that causes all the true harm and near tragedy. If there is a flaw in this story, it's the fact that Aron fails to undergo much of a change. He comes to certain understandings, yes, but he never really blames himself (or at least not for long) for anything that happens. (Roman, on the other hand, takes responsibility for everything.) His broken promises, his oath-breaking, are somehow Wulgar's fault, and he remains obstinately bitter towards the thane to the very end, no matter how many times Wulgar rescues them or forgives them. That being said, one can never accuse the writers of having Aron act out of character.

Oddly enough, my inability to find much to like about Aron did not spoil the story for me. There is still a sweet tenderness in Aron and Roman's courtship, and a poignancy in the hopelessness of their situation. The detailed portrayal of this unsettled time period, a well-drawn cast of characters, and the desperate hope that, somehow, all will be well in the end more than keep the reader's attention. There are plenty of historical novels out there - few are as adept at transporting the reader as this one. As a side note - I had some concerns in the end about Wulfgar, but I see there's a sequel just for him. I'm looking forward to it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bee Among the Clover 25. März 2009
Von M. Nix - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In the 5th Century, Britain is a harsh country with thanes controlling their own small piece of the land while smartly surrounded by their warriors. Meanwhile, backbreaking work is done by free men or thralls, still free but obligated to their thane for set time periods and slaves, owned forever.

One such thane is Wulfgar, cousin to a king who lives in the northern lands. Wulfgar owns a large tract of land and controls many lives including the young man he snatched from property near Londinium about four years ago. Roman was born free, the son of wealthy parents but unfortunately for him he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wulfgar has no intention of ever giving up his handsome bed partner.

While visiting a farmstead over missing payments Wulfgar, his men and Roman who is along to record transactions meet the manager's son named Aron, a comely, well meaning hot head. Shrewd thinking and guile put Aron in Wulfgar's bed by day's end, no longer free he is a thrall for the term of one year. Lives will be changed irrevocably once Aron joins the household, especially for the slave Roman. No one could have foreseen the events that follow for the three men. There lives will never be the same.

Bee Among the Clover is sure to tug your heart strings in the best possible way! Readers of Bee Among the Clover are presented with a tale full of adventure, loads of sensual encounters and the possibility of true love between Roman and Aron. I really enjoyed Bee Among the Clover but the characters many communication issues were too numerous for me. Heavy on characterization and lighter on scenic/historical description, Bee Among the Clover is a lovely romance, very entertaining and totally hot!
