Summary

Over forty-million pounds in the bank, but the one thing she wants to buy is not for sale.
Freya Stone is a Lottery winner. A Euromillions Lottery winner to be exact. The week she won, hers was the only winning ticket. And it was a rollover, seeing her almost forty-five million pounds richer. But with no taste at all for a wealthy lifestyle, Freya bought herself a flashy car and a fancy apartment, then ran out of ideas and stuck the rest in the bank to be carefully invested by her own private wealth consultant.
One passion her wealth will enable her to indulge, however, is her appetite for submission. Or so she thinks. Following a childhood illness, Freya is unable to speak. She gets by pretty well with a combination of British Sign Language and a notepad, but her lack of speech makes negotiating difficult. She can’t tell a Dom what she needs, and she can’t use safe words. None of the Doms she’s played with so far have been especially interested in training a novice sub who doesn’t even squeal.
So Freya decides to buy tuition from a Master who comes highly recommended. Why not? She has the funds at her disposal, and nothing better she’d like to purchase. Twenty-five thousand pounds for a month with the Dom she’s fantasised about for ages seems like a bargain to her.
But experienced and harsh Dom Nick Hardisty has other ideas. Infuriated at Freya’s attempt to buy his services, he turns her down flat, while also demanding that she pay for her temerity by submitting to a punishment which he will administer personally.
Can Freya accept his discipline? Can she convince him to reconsider and provide the help she needs? And Nick Hardisty drives a hard bargain. If he won’t accept her money, what will his price be?

    “A dazzling masterwork” of sex, death, love, and suffering in WWII Vichy France by the infamous novelist and author of Our Lady of the Flowers (Leo Bersani, The New York Times Book Review). 
     
    One of the great literary outlaws of the 20th century, Jean Genet was committed to challenging the complacent middle-class morality of his native France. His apocalyptic, pornographic, autobiographical novel “Funeral Rites is quite possibly an evil book. It is clearly a brilliant book…a seminal document in the development of one of the most important literary imaginations of our time” (The Washington Post-Times Herald). 
     
    Genet’s sensual and brutal portrait of World War II France unfolds between the poles of his grief for his lover Jean, killed in the Resistance during the liberation of Paris, and his perverse attraction to the collaborator Riton. Within this anguished account of a conflicted mind, Genet paints a grotesque carnival of soldiers, traitors, lovers, criminals, and the grimly surreal landscape of Occupied France. Elegiac, macabre, chimerical, it is a dark meditation on the mirror images of love and hate, sex and death. 
     
    “Only a handful of twentieth-century writers, such as Kafka and Proust, have as important, as authoritative, as irrevocable a voice and style.” –Susan Sontag

Boundaries are crossed, a darker, ever more dominant side to her sexuality arises. However, a foolish infatuation with a handsome new colleague threatens to derail her scheme, when her would-be lover feels rejected and seeks revenge for her tantalising ways.

Fortunately, as well as her own firm determination and desire, she has female allies to rely on for help in getting what she wants. Will the seeds of her foolish flirtation bear bitter fruit? Or can husband and wife overcome the threat and rediscover their bonds of mutual pleasure?
