BSpring 1873: I arrived in Japan a virgin bride, heartsick and anxious beyond measure. Yet I embraced this perplexing world with my soul laid bare after uncovering an erotic, intoxicating power I hardly knew that I, Katie O'Roarke, possessed.Japan was a world away from my tedious Western existence, a welcome distraction from my recent marriage to a cold and cruel husband. But when James attacked me in a drunken rage, I could tolerate it no longer…. I had no choice but to escape into the surrounding hills. I awoke in the arms of Akira, a young Samurai, and it was he who took me to Shintaro, the head of the powerful Samurai clan.At first distrustful, Shintaro came to me every day for a fortnight until my need for him made my heart race at the very sound of his feet upon the wooden floor. He taught me the way of the Samurai—loyalty, honor, self-respect—and the erotic possibilities of inner beauty unleashed. It is his touch that shatters my virginal reserve, evoking danger and physical pleasures that linger beyond our fervent encounters. But James means to find me, to make me pay for his humiliation. I can no longer hide amongst the orange blossoms as rebellions rage, and as my own secret continues to grow…....

    Este libro lo leí hace bastante tiempo, por ese entonces no tenía Goodreads, lo creé al mes siguiente de haberlo terminado.Recuerdo que me gustó, aunque no me conquistó del todo. Katie pasa por muchas cosas cuando se ve obligada a vivir en Japón, junto con un marido que no la quiere, y lejos de todo lo que conoce.Pero las circunstancias del destino hacen que conozca a un jefe samurái, Shintaro, que le muestra todo un nuevo espectro de cosas en la vida.Probablemente en algún momento lo relea, pero no sé si será en un momento próximo. Está recomendable para pasar el rato.

    A Sensual Journey for the Erotica ReaderA savage land. A savage husband. Bushido and sexuality. Katie O'Roarke was brought to Japan a virgin bride hungry for the touch of a man. Wed to Lord Carlton to up her status and fund his debauched lifestyle she finds herself in a foreign land struggling to protect the financial interests of her father from her husband's excesses. When an encounter with one of the legendary Samurai lords, Shintaro, leads to an impassioned obsession her adventures in Japan take a sensual turn. Fleeing a violent attack from Lord Carlton, Katie is found by Akira, a young Samurai warrior. Brought to Shintaro by Akira she will learn the ways of the Samurai as warrior and lover. But Japan is a land in turmoil as Western influences threaten to destroy the Samurai ways of honor and loyalty and Katie's husband will stop at nothing to continue his secure himself a fortune. She will have to fight to save those she loves proing herself a true follower of Bushido. I read a bit about Bacarr's previously released book The Blonde Geisha and while I intended to read it never did get around to it. Getting my hands on The Blonde Samurai I am pleased to say that I will be picking up more of Bacarr's work in the future. Why? Because she knows how to write an engaging first person narrative!!! Told from the perspective of Katie O'Roarke herself, as if she is writing a memoir, The Blonde Samurai gives readers a lot to digest as the story unfolds. From Lord Carlton's passion for spanking to the basics of the fashions of the era each scene is highly visible without much imagination required. Richly detailed and obviously decently researched I found myself easily transported from contemporary time and place into a nineteenth century London and Tokio. I had hoped for this to be a bit more romantic in all honesty but with the Samurai code coming into play that part is very subtle. Katie's relationship with Shintaro lacked chemistry for me as a reader and I think some of that had to do with how little we know about who he is as the hero of the story. For fans of M/F/M or M/M erotica this story features quite a bit of both with a little bit of F/F and M/M/F as well. I don't care for spanking and there's quite a lot of it in the early chapters as Katie explains Lord Carlton's tastes and behavior. If you enjoy that, ropes and knots, light bondage and voyeurism you'll be pleased to find those naughty bits as well. Overall, I read it more for the story than the erotic aspects and enjoyed it though I found it really implausible. But hey, it's fiction! It was entertaining. Most of the erotic scenes weren't quite what I was expecting (I think I was anticipating it to be more romantica than pure erotica) so if you're into erotica AND historical fic I think you'll enjoy The Blonde Samurai a lot.

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/I'll start by saying that this is written in the style of Victorian era tittilation novels - the ones you always found at the top shelves of bookstores written by "Anonymous". They were naughty fiction written over a hundred years ago for snickering uptight Victorians at the turn of the century.This book is very much in that genre and vein. It's definitely not a historical; nor is it a modern erotic kinky book. Instead, it is very much influenced by Victorian erotica: master-subject class distinctions are observed, which can make it feel very cold and aloof. But this was the erotica of the period: written by hacks for quick sales and often featuring light sado-masochism. Victorian women maintained their innocence throughout their 'adventures' - something that can be hard to resonate with the modern woman. The bad guys are moustache twirlers and the good guys virtuous.The author did a good job of reinterpreting those Victorian novels, though I wish the cover had been more appropriate to the period feel. It's made to look like a modern historical fiction with an erotic undertone but really should have had the lurid covers of the period from which it takes its cues. It is an easy read though printed on very cheap paper. It can be a nice way to while away an afternoon.

    The story was interesting and the memoir style of writing made it personal. I think it would have been more interesting if the book was centered more on the story of Katie and her disastrous marriage and subsequent involvement with the samurai. How this all evolved made for an interesting view into mid 19th century Japan. I felt the author was more into relating explicit sexual details rather than relating the story.

    I couldn't finish this. The idea was intriguing a Western woman who falls in love with a samurai and is immersed in Asian culture during imperialism. I was minimally disturbed by the S&M and threat of rape at the beginning. The author's annoying habit of talking to the reader throughout the book was the final straw. I interrupted the flow and was entirely to much like presuming my emotions. No thanks.

    It has been quite a sassy read, if you get what I’m saying….. I picked it up because of my obsession with Japan and wanting to learn more about it! It tells a lot about the scenery of japan and a little bit of the geisha. Ms. Bacarr has written the blonde samurai so that her main character, Kaite, is making a memoir of her days in japan.

    Para la romántica erótica soy bastante puritana, lo reconozco, y quizás la novela no sea tan horrible... Pero yo si la novela es "Romántica", solo acepto parejas de dos, tres son multitud. No me gustan los tríos, ni los samurais con tendencias homosexuales... ni los rollos raros.. ufff...

    Pour lecteurs avertis seulement,il y a quelques scènes qui pourrait heurter la sensibilité de certaines, sinon j'ai bien aimé, c'est très bien écrit, seule bémol: j'ai préféré le méchant de l'histoire au héros qui arrive très tard dans l'histoire

    It was ok, but some parts I just could not get into and just found to be a little boring or too much for me.

    The pacing was odd - time kept skipping around and it was somewhat hard to follow what was going on.
