For years, one thing kept troubled young Christine Bexley on the right side of a life beyond salvation—the promise of a unique apprenticeship, as soon as she came of age, under childhood crush and world-renowned orchidologist, Richard Mitchell.

After three years of flirtation and shameless attempts to seduce her mentor, Christine now stands at the eve of her twenty-first birthday, a gifted orchidologist in her own right. But is she truly ready for the fabled Orchidarion? An exceptionally cruel test of skill and concentration, it can only be administered by those who have already mastered it. Success would place her among the absolute best in the world. But can Christine overcome this final obstacle to complete her ascendance, or has Richard's opportunity just blossomed for a long and hard payback?

Is there anything in nature that is more overtly erotic than an orchid in bloom? If there is, I need to know about it!

Christine Bexley grew up at her mother's side in her flower shop, getting to know renowned Orchidologist Dr. Richard Mitchell. She knew at a young age that she was meant to be by his side, his equal and his lover. When he takes her under his wing at 18, naïve and virginal, Christine uses everything in her lithe, young arsenal to try and lure him in, to her constant disappointment. On the eve of her 21st birthday, Christine asks him to administer the Orchidarion, a test of skill and concentration won only by the most gifted orchidologists. When push comes to shove, Christine will have to decide whether the blissful punishment that Richard bestows upon her failure is a prize more tantalizing than the esteemed title itself.

I absolutely adore Mr. Lexx's Crimson Confessions Series! It's so uniquely written and classy but so devilishly wicked at the same time. ORDER OF THE ORCHIDARION takes the beauty of the gorgeous yet overtly sensual orchid and turns it into an erotic short story that left me breathless and slightly confused but absolutely wanting more. This quote is a prime example of the literary orgasm that Mr. Lexx has woven:

"Be wary of the man who has mastered the orchid's secrets, because once he masters yours, your body may never again trust one who has not."

Le sigh.

Every word in this novella is a seductive pull on your senses, giving the reader so much more than simply an erotic short story. Mr. Lexx can count me as a big fan and willing submissive to his literary punishment.

Bottom Line: This book isn't for everyone, but those of you who appreciate the art of seduction will go wild over ORDER OF THE ORCHIDARION.
