Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Gabrielle's Awakening

Unexpectedly widowed, Gabrielle, a sexually inexperienced author/historian, turns for emotional support to her late husband's closest friend, a courtly cosmopolite who radiates masculine appeal. When Michael reveals that he desires a slave willing to exist solely for his pleasure, his shocking invitation resonates on some gut level within the woman married for fourteen years to a man afflicted by periodic bouts of impotence. Trained by Michael to submit and obey, Gabrielle grows to crave both the pain and the pleasure he uses to lift her to astonishing heights of ecstasy.

Just as she rejoices in having learned how to please him, a magnetically appealing stranger enters her life as Michael's guest. Raoul levies a bold demand that Michael considers himself obligated to grant. Both virile, dominant lovers strive with all their skill at erotic art, all their compelling mastery, to win the slave's permanent favor. Ever more emotionally distraught, Gabrielle achieves a startling new insight into her own sensual nature that enables her finally to resolve the dilemma tormenting her.
