In the darkness of a hot, Ohio summer night, Nora Dawson realizes her ex-husband plans to make good on his threat to kill her. Timid and weak, she almost welcomes the end of years of fear and intimidation. But the universe has other plans for Nora and her friends. They are rescued by space males on a cosmic mission to study human female sexuality. Nora is selected by Eros, a commanding but gentle master. With Eros guiding her on an exploration of her sexual self, the real Nora, written deep in her DNA, surfaces. Perhaps submission to a master is not something to dread, but to desire, in every sense of the word.

“You are still very tense.”
“Considering the circumstances…” she trailed off. “What, actually, are you trying to discover?”
