Kathy Ryan learns that the gross and ugly Simon Ruben has purchased six months of her contract from the mysterious Mr. Satomi. Just when Kathy thought she was free of the villains who have so cruelly used her, she must now serve a man she has every reason to despise. When her husband Jeff was still alive, Simon attempted to ruin his reputation with scandalous lies. Kathy and Jeff fought back and had the man banned from the country club for his lecherous and immoral behavior. But now the tables are turned and Simon wants revenge, as well as the luscious Mrs. Ryan. The stunned Kathy is powerless to resist these new demands; she knows that Satomi still holds her sister-in-law Mary-Margaret, and the woman's fate hinges on her compliance. She's forced to tell damming lies about her husband, and humiliate herself in front of her country club friends by lavishing her affection on a man everyone detests. But what shocks Kathy even more is an absurd but powerful attraction to Simon that has her willingly submitting to his crude sexual demands. That is...until Simon breaks Satomi's rules for Kathy's contract. While Kathy thinks she's now free from men like Simon, she finds herself inexplicably haunted by powerful dreams and a mystical melody that draws her back to the peculiar Dr. Gruber and his son Frederick. She willingly seeks him out, realizing only later that the Doctor has tricked her with drugs and hypnosis. He intends to make Kathy part of his Inner Circle, an organization of men who train women through coercion, bribes and other extreme measures to serve their canine pets. Is Kathy strong enough to thwart the powerful tools Gruber uses to enslave her to his dog Negra and the Inner Circle? Will her fierce resolve triumph? Or will her insatiable needs find her groveling at the feet of her masters, a slave to her own lust? Readers of Romantic erotica will want to pass on this one.
