When Velvet Glove submissive Ghost appears in Trip's medical office, no one is quite sure what's wrong with the young man. Ghost collapsed during a scene with a patron, and Trip has to decide if the kid is ill or if something deeper is going on.

Strangely drawn to the pale, silent Ghost, Trip discovers that there's a lot more than meets the eye under the calm surface. Whe

Elisa Rolle
This is one story in the Velvet Glove series, a BDSM futuristic club, almost a community, where subs and doms live together with the only aim of pleasure.

Ghost is a sub who went in a semi-coma during a session. Trip, the new doctor, has a sudden feeling of possessivness for the boy, and knows immediately what is the problem: Ghost is an empath, and if he is not able to exclude all the strong feelings to reach him, they can destroy him. Obviuosly he can't return to be a sub, and Trip decides to t

Good book, Well written yet left some questions in a lot of places. Makes you want to know more. Interesting that we are now part of universal system with different races
that needs to be explored more around the two main characters. Would love to see/read more on the club and the two main characters.

Short, sweet story

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 8/10

PROS:
- The character of Ghost has an ability that is unusual and manifests in interesting ways. It’s also quite a mystery at the beginning of the story, so I was intrigued right from the start.
- The story isn’t long (about 40 pages), but it has several sex scenes. Michael tends to create BDSM characters who fall hard and fast, so all of the scenes here are tender and emotional, even when the ch

This is from the Velvet Glove world which I’ve only ever read Braided, but something compelled me to try this. Ghost, one of the subs at the club, passes out during a scene for no apparent reason. Club doctor Trip tries to figure out why and it seems Ghost comes from a line of seers and Ghost is empathic. When others’ emotions get too much he shuts down. Trip also seems to be a tiny bit empathic and they can’t send Ghost back into the sub population, so Trip takes him on and they are able to con ...more

Overall
While "Ghost" is not his strongest work, Michael takes a slightly different angle than I've seen in his other works (so, it's new at least for me). Trip, the curious doctor, and Ghost, a boy who's a puzzle, make a nice combination as Michael's characters once again find their happy endings with one another.

While the story's concept and completion are all well done, there are chunks of dialogue that felt stilted and forced, like daytime dramas. However, even though this counts against the

Once again, this was sweet. Not long, not kinky, just nice.

Of course, I find it somewhat suspicious that almost all the subs (which apparently includes all kinds of subordinate staff) are “boys”, not merely by word, but actually thin and small and young and somewhat childlike. What do they do – get rid of them once they grow a little older?

Aside from that consideration, I simply could have done with a little less sex and more of what life was going to be like from now on for the couple. Because

Possibly my favorite "Velvet Glove" novel; Ghost is unbearably endearing and Trip's kindness and obvious care for him is beautifully romantic. There are slight hints of the BDSM that comprises all Velvet Glove novels but thankfully not much - on first read, it was obvious that Ghost shouldn't be treated in that manner because of his fragile nature. Was very, very pleased that Trip wasn't so much interested in domination in the end so much as love, and how it was not Ghost conforming to Trip's ne ...more

"Ghost" is my first venture into the Velvet Glove universe and I must say I am impressed and looking forward to reading more. I loved the characters, they remained believable throughout the story, something that seems to elude many authors these days. Ghost managed to keep me intrigued merely by being in this story and Trip helped pull it all together for me. Good job, Sean Michael, keep up the good work!

The story is on the short side from what I have started to expect from Michael but a great read anyway. Just before this I was rereading Fits Like A Glove and they refer to this incident, so I was curious what actually happened.

I think Ghost is a really lovely character and you even see a different side to Mal :)

So sorry that this was a shorter than usual story cuz I just LOVED Ghost and Trip. I like the empathic ability and that they ended up being in tune with each other. The shortness of the story was the main drawback but the characters are great.

Ghost was a very enjoyable story with an empath and a protective physician at its heart.
