Achieving the dream of a 'happily ever after' for Annie Graye starts with a handsome Texan, a new contract, and the delicious pain of a hand- crafted leather belt against her bare backside. And so her coming of age from a slave in training to a contracted Graye Maid begins.
For Greg Carmichael, it's neither Annie's 'specialized' domestic skills, nor the terms of her contract for which he purchased her. He seeks a submissive to call his own, not because of a piece of paper, but to be his to master; in heart, mind and soul. But he has a dark side, one that goes beyond the limits of acceptable society, and he knows that these limits are ones that Annie has refused to indulge.
Albeit an unorthodox way to begin a relationship, the specially trained 'Graye Maid' departs the comfort and safety of Graye Manor and begins her one year term of service with her new owner. She discovers not just a different side of the BDSM lifestyle, but that people exist in the 'real world' who are able to accept her as she is. Included among them is Greg's beloved younger sister, Melanie, who longs to experience the life of a submissive but has hidden her desires in the dangerous shadows of a local BDSM club.
As her feelings for Greg deepen, Annie strives to please and be of service to him, but secretly fears she cannot be everything he wants. As time goes on, she questions her ability to trust and surrender to his dark passions, and she is forced to face the fact that her dreams of the 'happily ever after' she has always longed for might end before their contracted year is up.
Is Annie's desire to serve enough to conquer her fears and become the type of submissive that Greg needs, or will she be forced to make a choice between the man she is falling in love with, and the hard boundaries that she refuses to ignore?
