One Word Can Open the Door to a World of Sexual Pleasure
In this stunning sequel to "Carrie's Story," the action gallops from sunbaked Greece to elegant Provence, by way of a secret tour of Paris. Leaving her lover and master Jonathan behind, Carrie's got a tougher guy in charge now. Initiated into ever more strenuous and rigorous erotic techniques, she's presented with a challenging menu of earthly delights and endless possibility.
Groomed, collared and harnessed to her new master's exacting specifications, our smart-ass, intrepid heroine nonetheless manages to hold onto her acclaimed sense of wit and irony. Thrust into the midst of a fantasy netherworld of lovely "ponies," she learns to play and win some dangerous games--of dressage and desire, bondage and romance. And Jonathan, we learn, has a surprising agenda of his own.
Told from both the dominant's and submissive's points of view, this devastatingly sexy story has readers in its (very) firm grip, as author Molly Weatherfield proves herself a master of the BDSM genre.

Review quote

"a classic of its genre... rare product of a gimlet mind."

"Fans of the popular S/M novel "Carrie's Story" won't be able to put down this sequel in which Carrie sheds her old life with lover Jonathan and embarks on an incredible sexual adventure to prove her devotion to a demanding master. Torrid scenes of training in the explicit arts of sexual satisfaction blend with fevered passion and the agony of living with life's sometimes-difficult choices in a book rife with compelling characters."
--Good Vibrations
"Fans of "Carrie's Story" will definitely want to get their hands on this hot little sequel to that best-selling erotic S/M novel. "Safe Word" continues the story of Carrie, former Berkeley lit. student turned sex-slave, after her sale at a fancy European slave auction. This book starts at the end of her year-long servitude and slave-training, with Carrie meeting up with her former master, Jonathan. The book goes back and forth, with Carrie and Jonathan swapping stories from their past year apart, and it gives a fascinating glimpse into their interpersonal dynamics and individual sexual experiences. That is, if you chose to read it straight-through, it does. The book also works well if you hold it open with one hand, breathlessly skimming for the next hot sexy scene..."
"Weatherfield incorporates emotions and sensibilities into the text and she tells a good story. Her writing is rich and she has drawn some very real characters. We can only hope for more."
--Amos Lassen
"Intense and vivid imagery, notm
