Michael fantasizes about becoming a dom and having a submissive at his beck and call. When he reveals these desires to a friend, he is introduced to the House, where he learns to train and discipline the women who come there to become temporary slaves to the masters there.
After years of participation, a woman comes to the House who captures his attention as much more than just a slave. Her name is Lucy, and he wants her badly, not as a slave but because he's in love with her and wants to be with her. But House rules strictly forbid masters from entering into romantic relationships, especially with a slave! Now Michael must decide between his loyalty to the House and his love for Lucy.
But even if he chooses Lucy, will she want him? Will she be willing to submit to him the way he dreams of? And if she doesn't, will he be able to return to the House?
