Stern Manor by Denise la Croix
"There are two types of male slaves, the kind that mistresses keep and the kind that they use for fun and then pass on or sell to other mistresses." Upon her arrival in London, Fiona Bellamy stands poised to take on a new role, that of personal assistant to the beautiful mistress, Lady Sandra Stern of Stern Manor. The young and eager Fiona - she is just twenty-three - arrives just as six new male recruits have come to Stern Manor, each one tattooed with her red and gold SM monogram on their buttocks. Each one will be trained to slavishly serve the female gender, their masculine bodies given over to the pleasures of women. While the discipline is hard, the training often sadistic for these 'lucky' males, what Fiona will come to learn is that everyone at Stern Manor is under the careful scrutiny of Lady Stern, everyone subject to her reign, and everyone must please this formidable mistress. From all over the world, wealthy women will soon flock to Stern Manor in the Scottish Highlands. As one of the most dominant Mistresses in Europe, Lady Stern will hold one of her famous male slave auctions. For sale is what every Mistress wants - the perfectly trained male submissive. Fiona and Lady Stern have put their newest male submissives through a rigorous training programme sure to impress potential owners. As the auction approaches the tension mounts. Which Mistress will bid the most and be the lucky owner of the very best that Lady Stern can offer? The price is high for these male beasts, but the rewards are great. Note: Versions of this novel were previous published in the UK and as an ebook, titled Chateau Erotique. This version is the original Stern Manor.

Stern Manor by Denise La Croix
Stern Manor is the domain of Lady Sandra Stern, a tall, raven haired lady who deems herself the ultimate dominatrix and exudes sexual attraction to both sexes. It is also the home of several colorful characters, from Albert, the snooty butler, to Manuel, the dwarf chef, to Max, the handsome submissive chauffeur. Into this mix comes young Fiona Bellamy, a beautiful young lady who has just been accepted as Lady Stern’s personal assistant. Though Miss Fiona doesn’t really know what duties comprise the office of personal assistant, she soon learns they include helping her mistress prepare her current stable of male slaves for an upcoming auction.
Much of this story centers around Miss Fiona’s, and our own, introduction to Lady Stern and Stern Manor. There are slaves to be trained, disciplined, and enjoyed, there is the manor staff to sort out and keep in line, and, certainly not least of all, there is the auction to prepare for. Miss Fiona’s dominant side quickly blossoms in the fertile ground of the manor.
This story has elements of discipline and many Femdom sexual encounters without a lot of heavy cruelty found in some stories. There are some aspects of training, but with an auction eminent, most of the training took place before the beginning of this story. There is an elaborate auction of the slaves before a competitive gathering of lady dominas. Throughout it all, Lady Stern enforces her position as ultimate dominant, even among her peers. I enjoyed watching the ease with which Miss Stern exerted her control of every situation and person she encountered. I hope you’ll get to enjoy getting to know her as much as I did.
