While investigating Philadelphia’s underground sex industry, reporter Katy Nicholson discovers the world of S&M. When she tells her husband, David, a former pro football player turned businessman, that she wants to try exploring some of the things she has seen with him, David hesitantly agrees to meet the woman who has been the catalyst of Katy’s recent enthusiasm.
Enter dominatrix Maria Devereaux—Mistress Mary to her friends—an elegantly European university professor who begins to instruct Katy in the methods necessary to dominate and punish David. Together, Katy and David embark on a quest to rediscover one another and learn how to navigate their new roles as dominant and submissive. After Katy takes David to Mistress Mary’s dungeon and he passes the grueling and painful tests administered there, Katy begins to thrive in her dominant role. She decides that David should wear feminine underclothes and be spanked often, among other things, and their adventures soon spice up every aspect of their marriage.
But when disaster befalls Maria and her husband, the couples’ activities behind closed doors are suddenly made public, and it seems that David and Katy’s careers might not survive the experience. With the threat of public outcry and serious repercussions for their professional lives, will they need to cut all ties to kink, S&M, and all of the pleasure they have discovered?

She had been asking for a long time, and I had been reluctant. She was right, my Blackberry was driving me crazy with messages all hours of the day and night. My managers were capable, and I trusted them. In fact, largely due to Katy’s coaxing, I had begun to consider scaling back my duties and sharing responsibilities with a couple of my management staff, maybe even giving them pieces of the business, making them partners.
The atmosphere around our table had changed. I lifted my glass and looked to Katy. “You’re right,” I whispered. “It’s not as easy as it sounds, but I’ll talk with the necessary people and try to start things moving in that direction.”
“Really?” Her eyes were on me again, searching me, but in a different way. She thanked me, her hand reaching for mine again. “I love you, David.”
“I love you too, Katy. I’ll make every effort, I promise.”
“On both ideas, David?” She was frozen, a fork suspended in midair.
“Of course, sweetheart.” I meant it. Yes, I would love to spend more time with her, and if the play got kinky, well, that might be fun!
Later, at home, I checked messages while Katy went upstairs. I made short work of my emails and hurried upstairs to find her standing beside our bed. Her back was to me, and I could see her discarded bra on the bed and her nightgown laid out and waiting for her to get into it. She wore only a sheer bikini panty, and she was beautiful. I went to her and put my arms around her from behind, startling her. My left hand was around her waist, my right around her torso to cup a naked breast, and my lips went to the back of her neck, a very sensitive area. She started, but immediately stood tall to give me access to all her charms, and her sigh let me know my attentions were welcome. I felt her nipple come to life, and she writhed as I kissed her neck and earlobe. My hand descended to the waistband of her delicate panty, but she squirmed away and turned to face me, then gripped me and rolled backward onto the bed.
My lips found her other nipple, and my hand managed to slip into the front of her panties. The thick pad at the edge of my palm was hard upon her golden fleece now, and she lifted her hips to meet the pressure. I stroked her, sliding that pad up and down on the glossy mat of her pubic fur as I kissed her passionately and cupped a buttock in the other hand. Katy seemed ravenous. She put her hands on my shoulders and urged me to take my ardor lower, and then her fingers in my hair guided my mouth to her core.
“I love you, David,” she whispered, and then, “Please me, darling, or I’ll spank your naughty bottom!”
