Unlike the others, The House has one secret it shares with special occupants. Those admitted for transgressions of the flesh are embraced, their curiosity welcomed, their behaviors rewarded. Roles of domination and submission are taught with equal vigor, and those who leave emerge whole and stronger than ever.
Rose discovers this truth when she’s sent to The House for the treatment of her erotomania. In a time where modesty and prudence are revered, the experience shatters tradition, leaving her with forbidden knowledge few women possess. When she finds herself in the arms of a formidable lover, the gauntlet is thrown, and power unleashes power.
Warning: This story contains scenes that may not be suitable for those with more sensitive tastes. Scenes are filled with unique situations not normally presented in novels of this kind.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was first turned on to erotica in my early thirties, and when I wrote my first novel, I wanted to try my hand at it. Being a lover of old asylums and their history, my desire was to create a twist on this world and create a place where it was actually safe to explore sex. The Pleasure House Tales, which will be a collection of eight books, takes place in the late 1920s, and offers both women and men a chance to explore their sexual side. At The House, admits (or patients) are allowed to experience both roles of dominance and submission.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Believe it or not, I simply made them up. I didn’t create them based on any live or deceased person I know (except for one, Taming Bad, which is based on a deceased family member). I created characters that fulfilled certain roles and some of them became core characters, whom a reader will also find in the other books in this collection. I tried to give them special characteristics, special clothing that set them apart from some of their peers. I also have certain activities that are attributed to special characters, meaning only they do it an no one else.
He came around from behind the desk and stood next to her. “You seem a little confused, so let me see if I can clarify a few things for you. First of all, the treatment here at The House is unique, and we prefer to keep our activities hidden from public knowledge. We find that the community, in general, tends to repress certain emotions and behaviors. You, on the other hand, will be addressing those emotions and behaviors. You’ll learn things here no one else does.”
“Is that why I’ve heard very little about this place? I mean, people seem almost reluctant to talk. Perhaps it’s because they signed this document?”
“Precisely. And if you’ve read everything, you’ll see that we will silence those who talk.”
“Yes, but you don’t say how, exactly.” She put the paper back on his desk and folded her hands in her lap. “I’m unclear why such secrecy is necessary.”
He knelt down next to her, his eyes holding hers with a steady, pleading gaze. “While I can’t reveal our methods to you at this time, I’m hoping you can surely understand our position. You’re in need of assistance and we can help you. So will you be willing to put your signature right here on this line?” He tapped his finger on the specified area. Maintaining his stare, he handed her the pen.
“What if I don’t sign? What if I just got up and left, right now? My parents are gone. You can’t stop me.” Her eyes remained fixed on his.
John swallowed hard. “I really don’t recommend you do that. You won’t get far, and if you don’t sign this form, then we’ll have other plans for you. And you don’t want that. Trust me on this.”
“It seems no matter how much I try coming up with ways to get out of this, I can’t seem to. Everyone keeps telling me the same thing as you. Don’t people ever say no, leave here when they feel like it, go start a new life for themselves?”
Returning the stare, John replied, “Most people actually like it here.”
