love your stories, and this one included. kinda wish there was a sequel to this, when napoleon gets over the...problem, and they can be equals again, cause i wouldn't mind a repeat of what illya offered. ^^ no just have to watch the shark affair before i read passing the time, only one of yours i haven't read. ^^' hah...

I'm with Lee all the way on this. Wonderful storytelling, language as faultless as ever and a consummate study in POV! SUCH a satisfying read - thank you :o)

How come I didn't know about this sequel? This was wonderful. I love Napoleon's issues and how they don't just magically go away, and how they don't turn into girly mushballs even when they admit they love each other.
Nice one, Di!

Great story. I like the switching back and forth between NS and IK. Nice balance and moves the story along nicely.
As you said, quite an interesting and unexpected "problem" to deal with.
I love that one line where you describe Illya as a "picture of wantonness". Very poetic - and sexy.

What a fantastic story, Di! Your characterizations are always so spot on. Traumatized!Napoleon and Patient!Illya make a wonderful combination -- I didn't want the story to end. :( Thank you for this...it was well worth waiting the whole weekend for! (How's that for alliteration??)

When I had finished reading, I scrolled back up and started all over again! Very sexy story.
