[text_output]In previous books in the Marketplace series, readers have gone behind the scenes at a slave auction, an owner’s home, a trainer’s house, and even the ephemeral world of the annual trainers’ Academy. In “The Reunion” we visit a vacation resort for a Marketplace “family” gathering, where slaves, former slaves, trainers, and their spouses, significant others and family members can relax, let their hair down, and connect with each other. But the “reunion” that matters most is that of Robin Cassidy (the slave from “The Slave”) and her first trainer, Chris Parker (the trainer from “The Trainer”).

Of course the vacation resort isn’t just any resort, it’s Kaleigh Castle, a centuries-old Irish castle that is now a luxury hotel and happens to be where Chris learned many of the skills and practices that have made him so sought-after in the Marketplace. And while everyone enjoys their two most favorite indoor sports–gossip and sex–trouble is afoot. A nosy tabloid reporter thinks he’s onto something: a real-life international slave trading ring. Can Chris keep the world from learning the truth about The Marketplace, but accept the truth about his feelings regarding Robin, Anderson, and Jiro at the same time?[/text_output][custom_headline type=”left” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″ accent=”true”]Reviews[/custom_headline][text_output]Sensuous Sadie: The Reunion is about real kinky folk, young and old; thin and fat; sometimes fearful, sometimes confused, but always focused on their slave natures. I soon found a character who I could relate to, and liked the rest of them enough to get hot with them on their various adventures.

“The beginning of her novels have a real storyline, which in this case is a reunion of many of the former slaves who went through the “Marketplace,” a training center of international renown. Robin, a slave who was introduced in the second book of the series, travels to Ireland for this reunion. She has just been freed from her slave contract and is struggling with living without a collar. On the way she meets up with Chris Parker, a veteran trainer who will help her, and himself find their way to new relationships. It is in Kaleigh castle that Robin, Chris and many other slaves engage in some lively drama, as well as plenty of steamy scenes!”[/text_output][text_output]Debra Hyde:  “I can’t say enough good things about The Renuion. Laura Antoniou’s plotting only improves with age; . . . [h]er eye for detail, both subtle and broad, remain remarkable, and her erotic writing still provides exciting interludes. If anything, the hot vacation sex at the novel’s midpoint is one hell of a clever reward for her dedicated fans.

“Yes, the potent combination that made The Slave such the most popular volume in the original trilogy fires up again, and while I refuse to say whether the unrequited desire of every reader who ever latched onto Chris and Robin is finally answered, I can say this reunion is immensely satisfying.”[/text_output]
