The Olive Grove by Narcisse Navarre
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?
Praise for The Olive Grove
“I have never been so turned on by erotica in my life. The author has an unprecedented way of keeping her readers “dripping” with anticipation.”
“Narcisse Navarre’s controversial erotic novel, “The Olive Grove” weaves a seductive dreamworld that few authors are bold enough to give their readers.” –REVIEW by Robert Mendoza: The Lady Navarre
“[The Olive Grove] is very well written and steamy hot. So hot it got disturbing because I normally manage to keep detached from what I read. This is all I am willing to share about this side of the story, you’ll have to read it to find out why.” –REVIEW by Lana Walker: Mind-Blowing: The Olive Grove by Narcisse Navarre

“Narcisse Navarre weaves an enthralling and sensual tale within her steamy novella, the Olive Grove.

The Olive Grove will most definitely satisfy its reader, yet leave one delightfully desirous of more.” –Desiree +Read More
“It is not often enough we find an author so willing, with a richness of language that invokes the ancients, to forge the beauty of a powerful woman, without pause or reservation…I cannot recommend ‘ The Olive Grove ‘ enough. Take Gia and tuck her away for a long look out Narcisse’s smoldering windowed world.” –E. Rinaldi +Read More
“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.” –Laet O. +Read More

“I purchased this book for my Kindle and could not put it down. Ms. Navarre has a writing style I have not seen in quite some time. I was completely immersed in the world set before me. I can only describe this book as printed crack. I have read it multiple times and each time I catch a little something I missed previously making the story even better than before. I didn’t think that was even possible. I highly recommend this book. It is a great read that will keep you on the edge of your seat and when finished will leave you begging for more. Well done Ms. Navarre, well done!” –H. Ortega
“Captivating! I absolutely love this woman’s work. Its easy to read and completely captivating. If you don’t walk away wanting more than you need to re-read it!!” –R. Griffiths
