Title: Working for Him
To complete the merger of his career, can Richard convince his submissive Serena to be tied up in a whole different kind of knot?
Serena Carter looks forward to the Vertical Aeronautics company meeting every year. Not for the hour-long lectures on corporate policy or earning reports, but to meet with her Master, the billionaire CEO of the company, Richard Barrett. For the course of the week-long conference, they meet to explore their dark desires for submission and domination, only to part ways at the end of each meeting to their own separate lives. Except this year her Master has a surprise that will surpass anything they’ve explored before.
Richard loves his time mastering Serena. She’s the perfect sub, obedient without being cowardly, responsive, and just as interested in a little no-strings fun. But when the biggest deal of his career starts to go downhill due to his playboy ways, he gets the great idea to ask his little subbie to marry him, to give him a more conservative image and close the deal. But she stuns him when she rejects his request and flees, forcing him to reassess his plan.
Can Richard convince Serena that his proposal is more than just a business arrangement? Or will he lose his favourite submissive because of his own stubborn pride?

A quick and short reading story that packs a ton of action into four short days, Serena is an aeronautical engineer newly promoted to head a division of a billion dollar company. During the company’s once a year week-long conference, she allows herself the freedom to explore her desire and need for domination.
Richard, the owner of the company and everyone’s boss. Multi-millionaire Richard whose plans for a takeover of a smaller company are being thwarted because of some paparazzi photos of him leaving a well-known BDSM club. He is Serena’s dominant, but that just may not be all to their relationship.
There was a clever explanation of limits and emotional interplay in this story; Willa Edwards manages to show the delicate balance of strength and power that exists in a sub-space, while contrasting that with the everyday insecurities that every woman is subject to, and the often well-meaning “but she knows THAT” already attitude of men that often has them making room for yet another foot in their mouth.
The sex is all detailed from Serena’s point of view: it is her reactions and emotions that are more prevalent and incredibly well detailed with plenty of steam and detail. This is a clever combination of sexual needs, action and emotion all coming to present a story that will please many.
