"She's beautiful. She's hanging there by her wrists with her arms stretched apart, and her feet and legs are opened by a spreader bar. She has been there half an hour. My job is to keep watch on her. Not a difficult task. She is lit by several candles which flicker and gutter and make it seem as if she is moving, but I know she is tightly stretched so that she is immobile. In the half hour since they went away I have looked at her from all sides. I've not found one that is anything but beautiful and exciting. I have time to catalogue each of her attractions." In Pain Ordained, Richard Garwood creates visions of powerfully erotic submission and domination. Some are unusual and surprising, some are dark and thrilling, but all are highly charged reading for those who relish excursions into the farther reaches of sexuality.
