Dorian Graye is a master of the Florentine long-tail whip, and has made an art form of throwing the braided snakes to paint a human canvas. Like his Wilde namesake, he plays hard, but he loves even harder. Under a slightly sadistic exterior is a man whose greatest desire is for each of his precious submissives to find true love and ultimate happiness. He allows nothing to stand in their way, and is willing to sacrifice anything to grant them their heart’s desire… even if the journey to that desire means suffering as the door to previously unspoken taboos are opened and explored.
The time of the annual Festival has arrived and Graye Manor is bustling with a frenzy of activity. Its rolling, manicured grounds echo with the sharp sounds of a whip striking human flesh, and shrill cries filled with both pain and pleasure follow, bringing excited smiles and eager anticipation to the faces and hearts of the listeners. It’s the time of the Cirque de Sade Festival, bringing with it the final magnificent display of skills, beauty, and selfless service that will end at the auction block.
Things happen in the Manor – things that the real world would never embrace… Select applicants, known as Graye’s Maids, are trained in the classic skills of a domestic; with one major difference. Each girl is there because she’s drawn to the darker side of service and flourishes under the command of a hard palm upon a bare backside – or even, in more hardcore cases, the slash of a whip. It is here that anything is possible, and everything is probable.
The Whip Master – now with a new prologue – is a story about the ultimate power of love, surrender, difficult choices, and true sacrifice, and contains explicit scenes of whipping, severe discipline, spanking, edge play and sexual training. If this offends you, please do not read this book.
