NEW BOOK BY GLORIA BRAME
Parkland, FL, July 24---Universal Publishers is pleased to announce the publication of DOMINA: The Sextopians (226 pages, US $25.95), an extraordinary new SM novel by Gloria Brame.
The novel follows Arden Mclane, Jr., a naive graduate student, on his journey through the subterranean sexual paradise of DOMINA, a wealthy woman of mystery and inflexible will. There he meets "The Sextopians," a group of richly drawn SM characters who live in luxurious servitude to their Mistress.
Shocked yet hopelessly seduced by the perversity he finds in of Domina's world, Arden struggles to reconcile his submissive lusts with his moral identity. Forcing him to confront his innate need for strict control are a cast of real and powerful characters.
There is Ruby, a sexy Latina with a penchant for the crop; Opal, a lewd Venus whose greatest thrill is to tease and torment the novice; Amethyst and Sapphire, an inter-racial lesbian couple with a fascination for extreme body art; Emerald, whose wheelchair has not stopped her from pursuing sexual bliss; Hercules, a gay top who accepted harbor with Domina after the tragic death of his boy; Prism, Domina's oldest slave and most trusted confidante; Samson, a blond Adonis whose cruelty to Arden disguises a shameful secret; and Manuel, the beautiful bisexual houseboy whose sexual charms Arden cannot resist.
Pansexual, uninhibited, and uncensored, DOMINA combines social commentary with explicit SM in a steamy volume of spine-tingling, radically sexy erotica. With vivid descriptions of corporal punishment, bondage, watersports, and scores of exotic fetishes, DOMINA will keep readers turning the pages, from the low-key beginning straight through to the high-intensity, surprise ending.
