In a galaxy filled with slaves and governed by uniformed masters, Station Victoria is no different. But even under all the leather, silk and bondage fetish, young cadet, Gabriel Heinrich, is restless and bored. After returning from a short vacation, he finds himself more bored with the way of life in Station Victoria than ever. Distracted even from things that once made him happy and finding himself distant from his longtime lover, Eric Peterson, he longs to escape the bondage of the Station.
Meanwhile, at an auction, a traditional way of life in Station Victoria has begun. This may well be the thing to reawaken young Gabriel’s obsession, or have they awakened desire and feelings of another kind, feelings that have kept him a slave to one man, Admiral Patrick, and will he act upon them?
