Bound for Carlotta (Complete)
When Mistress Carlotta is paroled from prison, she makes good on her
promise to walk the straight and narrow--until the temptations of the
flesh and the chance to retaliate against her age-old nemesis prove
stronger than even she can bear.
Mistress Carlotta is released from prison and
rehabilitated from a life of depravity and sado-masochism. In atonement
for her sins, she agrees to help set up a home for abused submissives—men
and women. But the temptations prove too strong, and before long,
Carlotta has fallen back into her evil ways with a hauntingly frightening
twist. She breaks, and then she sells, her slaves to the underground,
where they are forced into the alternative-sex trade or made to perform in
alternative snuff flicks. When Lynne turns up dead, Dean turns up the
heat and presses authorities to take up the chase. As the trail turns
cold, he springs into action, enlisting the aid of Lynne’s younger
sister—who turns out to be more than Carlotta can resist!
