The Complete Penitent Series Book Package by Charles Arnold
Kathy Ryan’s feelings of guilt began at an early age, when she used to masturbate in her uncle’s basement, only later to hear him whisper, “Shame, Katherine, shame.” As an adult, a lovely young wife with a promising future, she’s haunted by her guilt. Writing to a man who captures her imagination, she says: I can only guess why I am so powerfully drawn to you, why I am both excited and repelled by you, desiring you, yet very much afraid. I can only guess at why I feel this overwhelming compulsion to subjugate my will to yours…I know that such a desire is wrong…obscene…terrifying.
The men Kathy desires disgust her… crude, filthy, wretched creatures… men no woman would want and yet she does. Even when she tries to swear them off, she finds herself again and again, lowering herself and returning for more humiliation and brutality. Driving heedlessly toward her twisted sexual shame, she quickly finds herself under the control of the hideous Mr. Stein. Though this wicked man repulses her, she’s unable to extricate herself from his tight grasp. He knows her better than she knows herself, and at every turn, even when she most denies the pleasure she feels, he confronts her with the awful truth. From her marriage to Stein’s dumb, repugnant son, to the vulgar, swarthy Abul, to the powerful Japanese businessman, who will have her at any costs, her life is circumscribed by the despicable men she’s destined to love and crave. The author of Lisa, Her Initiation, again creates a scheming and treacherous world as he explores the most deviant aspects of the human species. Be warned, this very graphically told story may offend you! This is no romance. Its content includes humiliation, punishment, anal and oral sex, S&M, bondage, public sex acts, exhibitionism and an unusual scene with leeches.
The Penitent II: The Facility
Out of shame and guilt, Kathy Ryan, a young and wealthy American widow sexually submits to Ezra Stein, a disgusting, unattractive but brilliant man. Though she hates the tawdy acts Stein insists she perform, Kathy feels inexplicably compelled to obey him. A witness to her debasement is the powerful businessman, Mr. Satomi – to whom Kathy is curiously attracted. At the end of the The Penitent, Kathy signs a contract to become Satomi’s concubine and is handed over to Abul – a ruthless thug whose hatred of American women is pathological.
The Penitent II: The Facility opens as Kathy is brought to Satomi’s training facility in Northern Pakistan, horrified to discover that her training Master is the brutal Abul she fears and hates. Using potent drugs and hypnotic suggestion, monitored by Abul’s assistant, Madame Khe, Kathy becomes more sexually slavish than ever. Her own will is suppressed as she is trained to submit to any act required of her.
Kathy soon worships Abul’s foul feet, begs to be severely whipped, and with little restraint, sexually serves any man in the most degrading manner. The training becomes more grueling as her captors seek to send her ever deeper into a subservient state of mind where there is nothing that she won’t do. The true test will be her willing submission, without the aid of drugs and hypnosis, to the very act that that she abhors most. Will Kathy’s will prevail, or will she pass this crucial test? In a final evil twist, Kathy’s virgin sister, Margaret, suddenly becomes another pawn for her captors to use against her, and she is forced to choose for them both between two terrible fates.
Charles Arnold writes of female submission in a unique and exacting fashion that is vividly shockingly. It is clearly not a romance. Included in its graphic content is humiliation, bondage, whipping, exhibitionism, punishment, orgasm denial, anal and oral sex, anilingus, psychological torment and degradation.
The Penitent III: Marriage
“Although she often felt that either anger or fear was about to overwhelm her, there was always this other thing…this sinking sensation in her stomach, this electric flow to her crotch, this insatiable sexual hunger that both shamed and excited her.”
After her training at the Facility, the young beautiful Kathy Ryan prepares to become Mr. Satomi’s concubine. But unexpectedly, Satomi gives her to the hated Abul for two weeks, and she returns to her home in Pittsburgh, where she must serve this beastly master. Kathy is devastated, and with the unexpected help of the bodyguard Uzzeta, she attempts to defy Abul and kick him out. But the plot to overthrow Abul fails and her planned escape is foiled.
As punishment, she must slavishly submit to the very people who poisoned her beloved husband – the event that triggered Kathy’s odyssey. She must endure their endless taunting. She faces Dr. Gruber, who concocted the lethal potion, and his repulsive son, Frederick, who present Kathy with a horrific choice – submit to their plan to train her as a canine bitch for their dog, Negra, or seduce and marry Abul, who hates her as much as she hates him. She’s ruthlessly taunted in every situation by vile men who delight in torturing the proud Mrs. Ryan.
Her choices are further limited, knowing that the fate of her innocent sister-in-law Margaret, now Satomi’s captive, hinges on her. As sickening as it will be, Kathy defies Dr. Gruber and chooses Abdul. Kathy returns home to face more abuse, but as plans for the marriage proceed, so does a plot to eliminate the loathsome Abdul. Does the irrepressible Kathy triumph? And if so, will she still be subject to Satomi’s plans to conquer her unflinching spirit?
In this shocking, often disturbing story, Arnold aggressively details the humiliation Kathy must submit to. Graphic content includes degradation, bondage, punishment, exhibitionism, piercing orgasm denial, anal and oral sex and anilingus. Obviously, not for the timid reader; although fans of Charles Arnold are certain to find this latest installment in Kathy’s tale one to savor.
The Penitent IV: Inner Circle
Kathy Ryan learns that the gross and ugly Simon Ruben has purchased six months of her contract from the mysterious Mr. Satomi. Just when Kathy thought she was free of the villains who have so cruelly used her, she must now serve a man she has every reason to despise. When her husband Jeff was still alive, Simon attempted to ruin his reputation with scandalous lies. Kathy and Jeff fought back and had the man banned from the country club for his lecherous and immoral behavior. But now the tables are turned and Simon wants revenge, as well as the luscious Mrs. Ryan.
The stunned Kathy is powerless to resist these new demands; she knows that Satomi still holds her sister-in-law Mary-Margaret, and the woman’s fate hinges on her compliance. She’s forced to tell damming lies about her husband, and humiliate herself in front of her country club friends by lavishing her affection on a man everyone detests. But what shocks Kathy even more is an absurd but powerful attraction to Simon that has her willingly submitting to his crude sexual demands.
That is…until Simon breaks Satomi’s rules for Kathy’s contract.
While Kathy thinks she’s now free from men like Simon, she finds herself inexplicably haunted by powerful dreams and a mystical melody that draws her back to the peculiar Dr. Gruber and his son Frederick. She willingly seeks him out, realizing only later that the Doctor has tricked her with drugs and hypnosis. He intends to make Kathy part of his Inner Circle, an organization of men who train women through coercion, bribes and other extreme measures to serve their canine pets. Is Kathy strong enough to thwart the powerful tools Gruber uses to enslave her to his dog Negra and the Inner Circle? Will her fierce resolve triumph? Or will her insatiable needs find her groveling at the feet of her masters, a slave to her own lust?
A novel for those who enjoy shocking scenes of female degradation and humiliation. Readers of Romantic erotica will want to pass on this one. Graphic scenes also include bondage, punishment, exhibitionism, orgasm denial, anal and oral sex and anilingus.
