Sex, Sizzling Sequel to Best-selling Novel of B&D! In Branded, Sarah (heroine of Bonded) descends further into the world of bondage and submission after losing to Kate in the "Rite of Retribution". Embarrassed by her promiscuity, but aroused by the slightest touch on her sensitive skin, Sara is sold by the cruel Master Devon to Master Jason and assigned to the Society's training ranch under the care of an apprentice master, Dom Max. From the moment she steps out into a grassy paddock, her body and mind are taught to respond to a master's every whim. Strict discipline and tortuous training, artfully entwined with tender care and attention, become a way of life amid the tantalizing and sometimes terrifying attentions of the other barn slaves. As Sara and Dom Max proceed toward presentation at the Society's upcoming Festival, unsettling information is discovered; Sara's contract is invalid. The Society's required removal of Sara from training jeopardizes Dom Max's ascension to full Master and threatens to force Sara to abandon a way of life that her body and mind have begun to demand. Only Master Jason can ensure Dom Max becomes a master and restore Sara's way of life, renewing her hope that she will one day earn her master's coveted Brand.
