Our sexual proclivities are an enigma. We have them, we know that they are there; we hide them, we keep them secret - sometimes we act on them. We cannot talk about them - no one would understand. We feel heated shame. We block feeling, turn away from feeling; we do anything not to feel. We crush the horror of the terrible deed that the little voice inside our head bids us do. Freud tells us that repressing feeling will amount to neurosis - Jung says pretty much the same - the repressed will bubble to the surface in one way or another - it will find a way out.
It will find its voice and it will demand to be heard.
The two stories presented here delve into the idea of what happens next. What do you do - where do you go, after crashing and smashing your way through the final taboo?
A Queen, her depravity told through the millennia. Homer tells her story - Pasiphae the unnatural; the King, her husband, made a cuckold. Men snigger about the royal couple - even now, centuries later. What she did, her shame exposed to all, when she gave birth to a monster.
If you know Homer's story, you will know that the monster is proof that Queen Pasiphae was indeed guilty of a terrible perversion.
And my own tale "The Beast in Me", the taboo ever present in Daisy and Noah. They are lovers, besotted with each other; besotted with a terrible secret. They break man's law and God's law too.
Sensitive listeners should be cautious, especially if easily offended.

Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
This book is 2 tales. The first of Noah and Daisy and how, upon meeting online, discovered they shared a desire for the probably one of the most forbiddens amongst forbidden.
The second is a myth of how a queen was made to bare a half man, half bull.
While I found the myth more palatable merely because it was a myth, even the first tale was well written and though taboo, I could feel the struggle was real for them.
Jazmin Kensington is a great narrator. I think this might be my first by her and although she is more of a story teller than a vocal performer, her style was great for this type of book.
I live and enjoy life enthusiastically. I love kinky things, exploring sexuality, and bending gender.
Billerosie takes her readers on a journey into the taboo in this book. While this will certainly not be eveyone's cup of tea, these are wonderfully written stories with great character development and graphically described scenes that draw the reader in and allow them to see something raw and forbidden.
