“Thank you. Thank you for writing a story that shows a healthy Dominant and submissive relationship! Your descriptions about each scene, along with how Evelyn and Lucas felt about each other all throughout this story left me in awe. The moments between them read like a new poem that I fell in love with after each word. Speaking of poems – the one you included resonated so hard with me! I normally don’t read stories told in present tense, but I’m so glad that I took a chance and selected this read.”

At the heart of King’s Grove lies the Sapphire Society, a philanthropic group known, only in whispers, for their affinity for the BDSM lifestyle, a realm where dominance and submission are embraced with open arms. The poised and independent Evelyn Crace finds herself unwittingly entwined with the society’s circles, drawn in by the mysterious and enigmatic Lucas Morgan. A well-respected figure in the society, Lucas has been on a journey of self-redemption, evolving into a man who now desires to commit to a submissive of his own. But with the interjection of Steven Hostetler, the CFO at Evelyn’s workplace, their blossoming relationship is threatened.


As Evelyn navigates the complexities of love and submission, she comes to understand the depth and respect ingrained in a D/s relationship, shedding preconceived notions and embracing her newfound passions without shame. Meanwhile, Lucas is forced to confront remnants of his turbulent past, proving his worth not just to Evelyn, but to himself. Their budding romance faces trials and tribulations, fueled by manipulative falsehoods and a power struggle that culminates in a decision by the Sapphire Council that could seal their fates forever.
