The world of The Marketplace…
first opens at a training house on Long Island, run by Alexandra Selador and Grendel Elliot. Follow the trials and tribulations of four aspiring slaves as they undergo training hoping to be accepted into The Marketplace.
Under the firm hand of Grendel, the sharp eye of Alexandra, and the painful leather strap in the hands of Chris, these men and women struggle to overcome their shortcomings; pride, selfishness, immaturity and perfectionism. Who among them will survive the training meted out by the rigorous and unrelenting Chris Parker? And who will uncover the truth of his or her own sexual need to submit?
To be thrilled at the touch of leather, aroused by the sound of harsh words, or satisfied by the security of rigid bondage is the mark of a lover. To be thrilled at the opportunity to provide useful service, aroused by a pleased nod, and satisfied by the proverbial job well done, is the mark of a slave. It may sound severe. Almost anti-erotic. Until you see two people, owner and owned, existing in a complementary relationship where each suits the other like balances on a delicate scale.
