You Are Mine by Janeal Falor introduces us to Serena who knows she will always be owned by a warlock and she will never be free. Serena also knows that no matter what her warlock wants -- if it’s cruel, inane or anything similar -- she has to do it, like it or not. Added to that is the simple fact that if she does not do as she is told and follow the rules, she will be harmed; perhaps not in a manner like scars but the idea of being spelled into being barren for the rest of your life is a scary thought. Then she is won by a new warlock, a man from another country, a barbarian. Serena makes the choice then to break the rules.

Janeal Falor has created an inviting and also dangerous world. There are elements of Gor and The Story of O in this book and it certainly gives it an allure. When you dig deeply into the story, you are captivated or even held captive as much as Serena is. While she is a woman who knows she must obey as women are only ever property where she is, there is an instinct to rebel. I think that is an instinct all of us can identify with; sometimes you just want to break all the rules and dance in the rain. There is not much romance in this book, but you can feel it just under the surface. Overall, this is very well penned with engaging characters and story.
