Lance Llyn is a billionaire corporate investor, investing in companies around the world that research, develop, and produce alternative sources of fuel and sustainable energy sources. Part of his business runs on long-run investments where initial investments do not produce immediate financial dividends but do produce results years later. Part of his business also runs on taking on private investors for whom Lance invests their money as he sees most appropriate in his different ventures. Money is a fluid commodity but allows Mr. Llyn many opportunities, including the ability to maintain a small staff for whom he provides excellent benefits. He takes great pleasure in patronizing the arts to ensure their continuation.
In his private life, Mr. Llyn is an active practitioner of BDSM, an experienced Dominant, Sadist, and Top. His natural traits as a Dominant are extremely useful in his business life as they allow him to gently control, guide, and shape situations to his benefit, very similarly to how he exercises these skills in his private life and interactions. While on a business trip to Belfast, Mr. Llyn attends a street festival and is swept up by the ambiance of the event, inspired to meet the person responsible for its organization. Into his life comes yvette, an Irish woman born of the country but now a resident of Belfast. During a lunch meeting, Mr. Llyn notices a symbolic ring on yvette’s finger that marks her as a practioner of BDSM. A dinner date follows that lead launches the two into a complex relationship, one where yvette moves to the U.S. to work for Mr. Llyn’s company and becomes his secretary, personal assistant, masochistic play partner, submissive, and falls in love with him. Despite these parts of their relationship, Lance and yvette focus their time together as employer and employee in advancing the functionality of Mr. Llyn’s company, and making Mr. Llyn’s dream of creating a Home to help abused submissives rehabilitate from mistreatment by others within the lifestyle become a reality. Through the course of a spring, summer, and fall, the construction of The Home for Wayward Girls faces many challenges, including the murder of a wayward girl whose body is found on the grounds, and the quest to find the girl’s murderer. All the while, the relationship between Mr. Llyn and yvette continues to evolve until a pivotal event forces Mr. Llyn to make a decision, to face a choice, he never believed would come before him.
