Product Description

Product Description

GIA BRUNO impulsively books a vacation to Italy to escape her unfulfilling New York City routine. As she wanders Hadrian's ruined estate near Tivoli, Gia becomes inexplicably lost. She takes a break beneath an ancient olive tree, hoping to regain her bearings, but is soon lulled into a deep sleep by a satyr.

OVIELLO THE KEEPER weaves powerful dreams to ensnare the woman who has trespassed into his grove. He carries his captive to a secluded grotto deep in mythical lands long forgotten in the hopes that she can reverse his people's ill-fated demise.

Gia is spellbound by Oviello, a lover beyond her wildest fantasies. Caught in a world between myth and reality, Gia’s fears and inhibitions are challenged. Is her enigmatic captor the man of her dreams or her worst nightmare?

About the Author

Narcisse Navarre was born in Habana, Cuba in 1975. She grew up surrounded by nature in a world nearly devoid of media. Prompted by her father's nightly tales of the Greek Gods, folklore and magic, Narcisse's imagination blossomed into an extraordinary force in her life. In 1984 she emigrated to the United States where she was able to realize her dream of becoming an artist, poet and author. Spiritual, fiery and passionate, Narcisse is an avid world traveler and adventure seeker. Whether she is wreck diving, zipping through Belizian jungles or strolling through Roman ruins, Narcisse is always looking for way to incorporate her experiences into her writing. Currently, Narcisse is co-authoring a trilogy of dark fantasy novels. For more information visit Khajj.com.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sensual trip to a land of fantasy and delight 11 April 2013
Format:Paperback
This erotic romance is an easy, fun summer's afternoon read. Deliciously written and immersively atmospheric, it tells the tale of an everyday woman who goes looking for a bit of excitement in her life and finds herself mesmerised and well used by a family of satyrs; excitement indeed if you ask me. It's fun, beautifully described (both in terms of the scenery and the steamy erotic couplings) and although the ending was a bit of a cliché, I really enjoyed this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Olive Grove 15 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's been a while since I read a story as sensual and erotic as The Olive Grove. Narcisse Navarre's character Gia Bruno flees the routine of New York hoping to find love, sex and her family's roots on a vacation to Italy. What she discoverers is a dream world of sexual fantasy weaved by Oviello the keeper, a lustful creature from a half remembered realm.

I don't think this will be the last we hear of Gia and Oviello.

Enjoyed every word...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Grove and a Peep 2 Dec 2011
By Laet Oliveira - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Few nights ago I was not sleepy, so I turned my Kindle on and began reading something or other, while checking my Twitter TL. A book teaser was retweeted, I thought it was the right time to check it out and soon there I was at my Amazon.com account.
"The Olive Grove" by Narcisse Navarre (@khajj) was the work, advertised as an erotic story. First I scanned the pages and, to be sure, the erotic scenes were there, including some very graphic descriptions. Nevertheless, the "mythological" tale led my mind to a destination quite different from what would have seem obvious.
It doesn't really matter if "The Olive Grove" is autobiographical or just the product of an open, pleasure-seeking mind. What seeps through the context is an admirable reproduction of the fantasies, desires, fears and doubts many women carry in their souls. Graphic eroticism cannot and does not overshadow the main trait of a woman's libido, a factor that may be the key difference between the two genders: How an individual's libido perceives sex.
I was lucky enough to gain the confidence of a few women over the past four decades, to the point where I heard them relate such fantasies and fears. The lesson learned, albeit it may sound obvious was: Men view sex as the basis and a permanent goal in a relationship, women see it as ONE part of a more encompassing, long-term spiritual bonding.
Gia, the tale's heroine, opens her soul to let the male reader glimpse a woman's mind at work, while a female reader will certainly relate to the core of those thoughts. Sensibility will lead both to enjoy the carnal moments, while wondering how such fantastic events will end.
And the end comes with a touch that confirms the lessons I learned. Maybe the two genders will never fully understand and support each other, but it's good to know one can peep through a window that is just a tad ajar and catch a woman at her truly naked state of mind.
It is a short tale that offers the added benefit of long-term pondering, and that is why I say the peep was worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute erotic delight! 8 Aug 2012
By Smiles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"In it's purest, simplest form, The Olive Grove is actually a simple, classic love story. Don't, however, expect anything traditional in the characters or setting. Your imagination is going to be taken on an amazing, erotic ride like few I have taken before. Trust me, you want to read The Olive Grove. You owe it to yourself to read it. Narcisse has a way of taking the ordinary story and infusing it with unexpected twists that will have you eagerly awaiting her next offering!"

5.0 out of 5 stars My Intro to erotica! 27 July 2012
By Melissa R. Nickerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the first erotic books I have ever read. The story line and characters are amazing and I was drawn in immediately. I loved the sensual descriptions, nothing crude or rude. I fear I am spoiled for any other authors. I have read the best!
