After the death of his beloved wife, Marcus vowed not to become emotionally involved with another woman. But for a man of his sexually dominant nature there are needs to be met, and Marcus has found an ingenious way to meet those needs, becoming a 'Master for Hire', a skilled Dominant, who offers his services to submissive women who cannot get the kind of kinky sex play they need by any other means. Women under his domination are forced to submit to their darkest fantasies, stripped, whipped, humiliated and trained to slavishly serve, each one according to their peculiar desires. From simulated rape to scenes of deep depravity, Marcus leads clients longing for the sexual satisfaction they desire into the worlds they've only dreamed of. In the process, Marcus' life becomes a dream come true for a Dominant man. While Marcus takes great pride in his work, he stands aloof from his submissives, determined not to have intercourse with them...it's a hard stand, but one he feels sure will keep his Dom/sub relationships from spinning into dangerous emotional predicaments he'd prefer to avoid. But when the stunning brunette Roxanna crosses his doorstep, Marcus is irresistibly drawn to this fascinating submissive, a woman whose past history has left her with extreme sexual needs and volatile emotions. 'I want to be aroused. I want to be mastered. I want to be loved,' she tells him earnestly. Marcus has no plans to love this woman, but in spite of himself, his affection for her blooms wildly. Even in the face of her cruel and vindictive husband, he cannot resist her allure. He soon learns, however, that the price to have her will be high...maybe more than he's willing to pay. A fascinating story of Dominance and submission, as well as a master's primer of sadomasochistic technique.
