House of Slaves by Lizbeth Dusseau
Sarah Strathorn thought she had the perfect Dominant submissive relationship with her husband, Alexander, until he turned his home into a house of submissives. He's a wealthy and powerful businessman who rules his world, and his wife, with an iron fist. Now, Sarah must compete with a bevy of beautiful female acquisitions, including Chloe who seems to have captured Alexander's heart as much as his sexually dominant desires.
Angry with this sudden change, Sarah strikes out on her own. She becomes the submissive lover to a renowned playwright Jeremy Loudon, then, filled with sexual guilt, she lets a casual acquaintance with a mysterious and domineering stranger turn into a torrid night of reprisal, punishment and sex.
Sarah is further distraught when Jeremy demands she divorce her husband. She doesn't know where to turn, until she recalls the stranger's business card - Martin Finch, Attorney at Law. Seeking Martin's assistance, Sarah tells the man half-truths and tall tales, too embarrassed to disclose that she is as much a submissive to Alexander as his other females in his house. She fails to tell him that ten years before she willingly gave her husband ultimate power over her life. In his mind she's no more than a piece of property to be used or discarded at will.
When Alexander discovers her plans to divorce him, he swiftly acts, driving her to his feet again. Cruelly punished and forced to serve him and his slutty acquisitions, she finds her most depraved desires quickly resurrected. But the conniving Chloe has plans to destroy the current Mrs. Strathorn. Is it possible that with Alexander's connections in the underground slave trade, he would dare sell her? Or will he simply keep her slavishly serving in his house of slaves? She's been curtly dismissed by her lover, she's infuriated her attorney, and now any hope for rescue from this bed of thorns looks hopelessly bleak.
The bewildered Sarah's downward spiral is filled with infidelity and betrayal, lies, punishment, humiliation and bondage. Sizzling with S&M content and a stirring romance, this story also includes whipping, spanking, oral and anal sex, fisting, piercing, exhibitionism, lesbian femdom and female submission.

This is an interesting novel in that it is one of the few I’ve read that have as its focus the domestic side of the submissive/Dominant lifestyle. I might almost argue that this is basically a romance with plenty of kinky and steamy sex.
Sarah is a confused, submissive wife. Her dominant husband has brought several new slaves into the household, and he seems more interested in them than in his wife.
In retaliation, it seems, Sarah has an extramarital affair. When she decides to leave her husband, he exerts his power to once more hold sexual sway over his sex toy-wife.
Along the way Sarah experiences a wide range of scintillating sexual encounters. Her husband uses her for gangbangs and giving out of sexual favors for friends. There are beatings. Sarah revels in several lesbian trysts, as she is forced to satisfy a whole household of slaves. There are several scenes of bondage, and . . . well, I’ve probably forgotten some of Sarah’s adventures, but rest assured there is something for everyone in this sexual smorgasbord.
Definitely this is a read for women as much as for men, and in the end, Sarah gets, after all, what she deserves!
