Arthur Mitchell is an erotica author of many obsessions, but all of them center around power play. He is the author of more than several dozen short stories, many of them centered around the dark delicacies found in kinks related to bondage, domination, cuckolding, and breeding.
For Mitchell, sex is all about dualities. His stark tales touch the boundaries of a curious and arousing unreality, adjacent to the real world, but also separate from it. You won't find lusty college coeds and red faced titans of masculinity in his stories. Or, at least, not in the ways you've seen them before.
Instead, you'll witness secretive desires foaming to the surface. His characters are simultaneously prisoners and explorers, edging into mysterious vistas dominated by decadent elites, fetish cults, and bored suburbanites unable to resist the irrational, addictive fantasies rattling around in their skulls.
His places and people aren't always pleasant or pretty, but they are elegant and oddly alluring. If you enjoy fine erotica with a dark undercurrent, then Mitchell's work may find its way into your hands and into your head.

Not much interaction between Lola and her prince beyond the breeding bench until after she is pregnant. The 3 big rules of bondage are Consentual,Safe, and Sane. That is why a safe-word is agreed upon. I suppose what the author is going for is the "actions speak louder than words angle?" as the only people who physically hurt her are the servants, on the other hand, as their boss, he can tell them not to so unless that too, was a test. This story reminded me of an erotic version of an Outer Limits episode. Unsettling, and worth reading more than once.
