The Property by Alexander Kelly
A Pink Flamingo best-seller...
“My name is Mr. Palmer. I work for Mr. Rose. If you choose to live at his estate, he makes one promise to you: You will be used simply as a piece of entertainment, at his bidding day or night. You’ll be shared with whomever he decides… Like a piece of property. My guess is you won’t settle for anything less... Do you accept?”
Leatherclad head to toe, caged, bound, and taken that night... Kirsten eagerly says yes to this stunning proposal. Her transformation comes swiftly... from part-time slave at an underground sex club, to the fulltime property of Mr. Rose, she’s now subject to her owner’s sexual commands, to his discipline and even to the ruthless Mr. Lange who delights in tormenting her at every turn. This is the life she's chosen.
But when Kirsten finds out she isn’t the only slave Mr. Rose takes to bed, she has some hard choices to make, and for her attempts to rebel, she'll have to face the the hooded, brown-eyed mystery man, and the rough consequences he imposes.
A consensual bdsm fantasy.

Reviewed by John Velder (c) 2005
The Property follows the slave Kristen as she joins a secret society, removed from the outside world. In this society, she is a piece of property. That is all she is. She is kept in a cell and carefully, methodically trained and conditoned to be pleasing in every way to her Masters. She learns the positions they want her to learn; positions of openness and availability. She is trained in the social graces they require. And she is punished when she makes mistakes. Kristen does well in this situation; eventually becoming the concubine of the head Master of the society. Debra, another slave, initially jealous, warms to Kristen. But Debra is being punished; a long term. She has a secret.
Kristen, meanwhile, has become a mentor to another slave—a young woman named Bree. Bree's owners are a professional couple, often away. They often cannot pay attention to her the way her needs require. Kristen is assigned to mentor Bree. It's too good to last. Debra's secret drives Kristen away from the walled society. She is brought back, and punished—long term, like Debra once was. She fights with everything she has. Eventually, a man she comes to call The Executioner comes to deal with her—The Executioner is merciless, pitiless, but oddly warm and gentle—and safe. Yes. The Executioner is consistent and gives her the safety she craves so much. But her fighting is too much, and she is given the one thing she cannot deal with—her freedom. She wants to be a slave, but the society has washed its hands of her. In the end, it is only the Executioner who can save her—for he too has a secret.
Lots of great erotic scenes. I am a lover of descriptions of erotic clothing, and the descriptions of the flowing white gowns that Kristen wears while out to dinner with her Master are very great...the opening scene, that of the two attendants “dressing” her in preparation to be used by the woman she calls “Red Silk” is simply delightful. The erotic interplay between Kristen and the woman-child Bree is amazing—definitely passes the pants test. And the discovery of the secret of the Executioner...and why people seem to associate him with Kristen even when she herself doesn't understand the association...it's powerful readubg. The use of secrets in this book is just very well done, for both of the main secrets are integral to the plot; they are not add ons.
For that is one of the strong points of this book—it actually has good plotting. It's an erotic story. So many authors of erotica don't understand how to weave erotica into an actual story. Alexander Kelly seems to. He does a nice job.
