In desperate need of investment money to keep their business afloat, Gemma Longton and her lover and partner Mike Bowyer are at their witsÕ end to think how to obtain the finance they must have. Until he realises that there is a way and without telling her, arranges a deal with Roxwell, a millionaire businessman, whose price for providing financial assistance is GemmaÕs service as a bondage-slave for a full year. Unaware of her part in the deal and thinking that their business is saved, Gemma allows Mike to tie her up for some celebratory sex and it is only after she is bound and gagged that she learns he has sold her to Roxwell and will soon be collected to begin her sexual servitude to him. Worse still, she finds that he is only one of a group known as The Consortium and as their property, in chains and collar, adorned with the rings of her slavery, Gemma is required to serve them all, male and female, in any way they command, her body and mouth trained to provide exquisite pleasure to her Masters and Mistresses, on pain of cruel punishment for any failure to be fully satisfactory. For twelve long months she is permitted no option but to submit utterly and strive to become the perfect, obedient, fiercely hot and helplessly responsive slavegirl they require her to be and as her servitude becomes ingrained and as natural to her as breathing, Gemma surrenders to the passions unleashed within her by her bondage and her demanding owners. After so long as a slave, the news that her year is almost over brings mixed feelings for Gemma, for she has come to love her Masters and her life and is not sure whether she wants to be freed, or not. Until at midnight, as the contract with Roxwell expires, an unexpected event makes the decision for her.
