5 Star Review for The Complete Horse Mistress Collection by R.A. Steffan #Menage #Trans

CoverTitle: The Complete Horse Mistress Collection (The Horse Mistress #1-4)
Author Name: R.A. Steffan
Publication Date & Length: May 8, 2016 – 838 pgs


Carivel was born female, but she has been secretly living as a boy for years in her adoptive village of Draebard. The last thing she needs is to fall for not one, but two unattainable men—a dominating warrior and a reluctant wolf-shifter with a horrific past. Now, the Alyrion Empire is poised to invade, and Carivel must choose whether to keep her secret or reveal it—not only to the men she loves, but also to the powerful female ruler whose army could help protect Draebard during the coming war.

Steamy and spellbinding, The Complete Horse Mistress Collection combines detailed world-building and a heartfelt romance between three noble, damaged people who have no one to turn to but each other.

In addition to Books 1 through 4, The Horse Mistress boxset also contains an exclusive series epilogue not available anywhere else—Return of the Wolf.

Author’s note: This series contains descriptions of violence and graphic sex, including sex between men, sex with multiple partners (MMF), and elements of fully consensual BDSM within an established, loving relationship. Additionally, it deals with issues of gender identity and gender fluidity. It is intended for a mature audience.

Carivel is the star of this collection of fantasy/historical paranormal stories. Taking place in a tribal setting, where clans are highly structured and socially demanding, Carivel struggles with her role as a man with a woman’s body. She falls in love with shape-shifting eunuch Senovo and warrior Andoc. Their menage is lovely, explicit, and intense. Beyond the confines of gender and sexuality. The plot, too, is captivating. I read through these quickly, caught up in plot twists and harrowing experiences.
Though Carivel has a lot of issues to deal with, she’s not let off the hook when it comes to society. Other characters defy gender and sexuality expectations and Carivel must learn to be a leader, even when breaking the rules could mean death.
There’s powerful meaning in this tale. It’s challenging in all the right ways, and quite a story, too.
