New adult elements of romance and suspense with an erotic BDSM flair set the stage for Iris Kettles to have the journey of a lifetime.
Wanting the primary focus to be the growth arch through the eyes of twenty-somethings, I built the Juliet world and cast to allow transparent relationships that ring true. I wanted to examine that phase where you don’t know who are or even really what you want.
In the pivotal meeting of Sal Raniero, Iris begins to question who she truly is and what she desires. Iris is new to the world of Juliet; Sal is an experienced alpha-sub morphing into a Dominant. Sal knows who he is meant to be, but the path to getting there is continually met with resistance.

Sal and Iris fight not only to thrive together but to survive those psychological and emotional challenges of a D/s relationship. The changes their love endures puts their romance in the spotlight beyond the collar.
What ensues is a roller coaster of a ride, filled with highs and lows as Sal and Iris navigate their way through the rough terrain of each other’s mental landscape. Examining their perceptions and misunderstandings helps to paint the picture of what it means to choose to be present and aware in finding true love.
