The Olive Grove

By Narcisse Navarre

The Olive Grove

Transgressive Erotica

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?


Narcisse Navarre

Narcisse Navarre was born in Havana, Cuba in 1975. She grew up surrounded by nature in a world nearly devoid of media. Prompted by her father’s nightly tales of the Greek Gods, folklore, and magic, Narcisse’s imagination blossomed into an extraordinary force in her life. In 1984 she emigrated to the United States where she realized her dream of becoming an artist, and author. Narcisse is an avid world traveler and adventure seeker who incorporates her experiences into her work. She lives in an enchanted castle in upstate New York with her husband and cat.

Praise for The Olive Grove

“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.”

“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!”

“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.”

– REVIEW by C. Lawrence

“[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.” 
“Narcisse Navarre weaves an enthralling and sensual tale within her steamy novella, the Olive Grove. The frustration and desire that all women eventually encounter is perfectly painted by Gia’s story of wanderlust and escape from the mundane. The Olive Grove will most definitely satisfy its reader, yet leave one delightfully desirous of more.”

“Narcisse Navarre’s controversial erotic novel, “The Olive Grove” weaves a seductive dreamworld that few authors are bold enough to give their readers.”

– REVIEW and blog post by Robert Mendoza: The Lady Navarre

“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.”
