I liked this until I got to the part where he basically raped her at the end. Hurting someone during sex and knowing that you are hurting them when pain is not something that they want is abuse.

Hmm. Interesting. Sookie still hasn't figured out what she is doing, other than great sex for the next 60 or so years. Go girl.

Great short story about their bond. I am reading your last "book", quite honestly, they could easily be a trilogy. I just recentely finish the trilogy, '50 Shades' and had to wonder if you had read the trilogy as well. I see a lot of Christian Grey in Eric Northmen. The whole "dom" and "sub" thing is right out of the "50 Shades' books. In some ways Christian is much more gentle with Anastasia, in other ways Eric is more gentle.
For instance, Christian never fully fisted Anastasia, what man would want his woman all stretched out? For men the tighter the better that's why we women do kegal exercises to tighten our selfs up. I believe the majority of women wouldn't particularly enjoy that sex act.
It's not enjoyable having an OBG with their fist up our vag jay jays when giving birth, but as women we have no choice. A fisting sex act would remind us moms of child birth which is anything but arousing.
Christian initially wanted to dominate Anastasia, but as soon as he knew he was in love with her he made it abundantly clear she was not his submissive.
Sookie is a Goddess who possesses more powers than any supe alive. She doesn't need to be dominated,It's more appealing to read of Eric worshiping at her feet. I could have done without dom/sub sodomy and fisting storyline and the swinging in Fangtasia basement with others. It was to over the top for Eric and Sookie they need no one else for that particular entertainment. He's had a million years to play around, now he's exclusive only to Sookie and she to him. Eric shouldnt want any men or women lusting over his bonded, wife, mother of his children. She should be for his eyes only and he to her now. They sowed their oats before the bond and need no one intruding on their RED HOT SEX LIFE. It's much more erotic when keeping that particular delight to themselves. Their friends do not have a ray of color and light glowing over them when having mind blowing sex, the two of them ALONE experiencing it ALONE is good enough. I'm not kidding, it's good enough and not just a love story.

I had been only reading the Stephanie Plum stories on FanFiction and found this on a friend's favorites list. I had never read Ms Harris' SVM series, but caught an ad on HBO before the first True Blood episode hit. I have watched True Blood every episode since and am a huge fan. I decided to check out your stories and WOW! I am so very, very glad I did. I am trying to read them in the order of significance, from what the synopsis reveals, so this is the first of your work I've read.
You have done an exceptional job in building the characters' voice, for each of them. While reading your words, I am able to watch the scene unfold in my mind; hear their words, see their faces. That take immense talent. It will take me a very long time, with my RL interruptions, to make it through your massive body of work, but I plan to get through all of it, as soon as possible.
I am still sitting here with JE's "Sizzling 16" and "Smoking 17" lying on my dresser unread. I have read only two chapters of 16 and I'm afraid the Plum world will have to wait a while. :-) THAT, in itself, is a HUGE compliment to your writing. You have mesmerized me and have me dying to get to your next story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, from the dialogue, to the tone, to the way you make the emotions and feeling palpable as I read it.
Thank you for all the time, hard work and effort you spend creating these stories for our enjoyment. That you set aside a large part of time in RL that you could be using for selfish pursuits to bring us pleasure, should not go unrewarded. Please keep in mind, though, that because I am not always near a WiFi hotspot, I use "Auto Pager" for my Firefox browser, to keep the chapters preloaded to read offline. Unfortunately, Auto Pager tends to drop the "REVIEW" line and link, so I'm not able to review each chapter, but as I go back and reread stories, it also gives me the opportunity to back up to a previous chapter and let you know that it is being read numerous times and enjoyed as much each consecutive time.
Thanks again for sharing your talent, and your view of the world of our favorite characters.

Ok, I'm reading backwards because I found Late first and I've read it twice, now I'm looking at the other stories. You are a gifted writer Morgaine, thanks for sharing!

EXCELLENT prologue/prequel. I loved their honesty, and I really liked Sookie's approach - that it's harder to lie to each other when you're naked. ;)
I absolutely loved the last line.
