The first volume in the landmark Marketplace Series, which set the standard for contemporary SM erotica. These books chronicle the adventures of those who live in an enticing world built on a slave-based hierarchy, where realistic characters are confronted with questions of trust and duty amidst an ambience of pain and eroticism. In this volume, four new trainees join the exquisite Marketplace slaves, struggling to prove their worthiness to the rigorous and unrelenting slave-master Chris Parker. This new edition also contains an original short story, a must for fans!
