About The Marketplace Series.

About The Marketplace Series. Merchandise does not come easily to the Marketplace. It never has. In years past, just finding the Marketplace required a mix of personal dedication, passion, and the investment of a great deal of time. The creators always intended it to be that way.

Laura Antoniou is the author of the well known Marketplace series of erotic novels

Laura Antoniou is the author of the well known Marketplace series of erotic novels. a world so vivid in sequel after sequel, it takes on a reality of its own, one that's visually hard to let go of once the reader has put down the book. Book Six, "The Inheritor," was just published in February 2015.

Laura Antoniou's Marketplace series is a must for those who want an authentic glimpse into BDSM. If you wanted to know what pain and punishment have to do with eroticism, this first book The Marketplace is where you should start. She makes you feel like an honored guest at one of Grendel & Alexandria's dinner parties. You get a behind-the-scenes look at slave training with realistic and humanizing situations. The characters come alive and you will definitely be back for more to see what happens with Chris and his charges. Antoniou provides the reader with a sense of family and loving service that brings the characters and situations to life.

The Marketplace was originally published by Masquerade Books in 1993. The reason The Marketplace was so enjoyable for me it because of the writing. But after re-reading all 5 other books and loving them, I couldn't resist. As a drug addict, I needed a little more of my drug (The Marketplace series). Laura’s writing and world building is very fascinating and enjoyable even though I flinched a few times because of what the slaves had to endure. There’s this one scene with Sharon and two men who degrade her horribly that I had to stop reading.

There WAS a new kinky book from me in 2019 year - and I am in amazing company within it!

We all have our erotic fantasies. Some people dream of being schoolgirls or strict headmasters. Some people want to be treated like princesses or babies or pets. Maybe yours is to be the fresh meat in prison and passed around the cell block a few times. Or maybe you're the negotiably moral warden eho watches it all from the security room.

50 Shades of Grey reminded us that for many people, that fantasy is to be controlled, owned, and used for some else's pleasure.

The Marketplace follows leather playboy Brian, sweet, innocent Claudia, sissy maid Robert and drama queen Sharon as they enter a world where that fantasy is reality. The four are applicants to a house that trains people to be sold into consensual slavery, and to our protagonists, thst seems like a dream come true. Until it doesn't quite turn out the way they expected.

This is my fifth time rereading the Marketplace series, and it never leaves me wanting. There are characters to love, and characters to love to hate. The dialogue is clever and entertaining, the characters realistic even in their roles as caricatures, and the sex and kink are plenty steamy.

This is kinky smut for people who need a side of plot with their sex, and some diversity in their universes.

If the thought of serving, or being served is one of your kinks, then this book is a must read.
The Marketplace is a secret society catering to those who wish to own well-trained slaves and those who wish to be sold as slaves. The book focuses on the four slaves Robert, Brian, Claudia, and Sharon, who all get accepted into a rigorous training program under Master Grendel and Mistress Alexandra on a beautiful estate in the countryside. Grendel and Alexandra are representatives for an international organization devoted to trading in submissive slaves, and Marketplace - the name of this organization - is the largest but also most secretive organization in existence for people with these unique interests. For a few weeks the four slaves are drilled into being perfect servants, and throughout the book steaming sex is mixed with moving portraits of people with but one goal in life: to become the perfect servant to a Master or a Mistress. Robert a shy heterosexual man with low self-esteem. Brian, a gay confident man. Sharon an erotic bombshell who is to having any man she wants. Claudia who already serves under Mistress Madeleine but is sent to the Marketplace in order to improve her skills. This was my first time reading this author and this book was pretty good the book was full of hot sex scenes. The book did have a few grammatical errors and for that I give it four stars because the errors got annoying. This book was also not for people who only want to read light BDSM it was training in all types. Overall this was a good read.
Normally I avoid reading reviews until after I've finished reading a book, or at least have written my own review. I broke that tendency with this book. When I saw complaints about typos, grammar errors, I got incensed for Laura; I'd already read this lovely book once and had noticed only a few small things- if I could take off half a star, I might to do that, but it wasn't bad enough for some truly savage reviews I saw. Further I was angered by "this isn't the BDSM I know" type of comments; while I do enjoy an attempt to BDSM realism, I'm not going to hate a book because the author hasn't done that. I think in the blurb, it's obvious that what Laura intended to write was BDSM fantasy; it shouldn't be judged by what works for one person in real life. Knowing that this was a BDSM fantasy, I sat down to enjoy it as such. And enjoy it I did! The stories of the trainees brought me to tears laughing so many times, what sad, silly caricatures of BDSM they were each in their own ways. I adored the trainers, Grendel and Alexandra. Although the strict, proper majordomo Chris made me curl my toes in anticipation every time he came back into the story. Happily continuing on with the series.
I have read this entire series, over and over. I read them early on my path in the BDSM world, but they stand the test of time. I believe the tenets behind them just as much now as when I read them for the first time - not that they ever stoop to being 'preachy' - the books are a cracking good read. I enjoy them every time. The stories are an excellent mix of the profound and the profane, they'll make you horny, they'll make you laugh, and they'll make you think about them later. I never pick up one without my back and knees getting itchy. Laura Antoniou does the best job of any author I have ever read in exploring the differences, the similarities, and the calling to this life - of exploring this thing called Service, and explaining the profound joy in finding your place. If you've ever wondered 'why do I do this?' or 'why do I think about this?' these books are like coming home; and what a lovely home it is. Filled with captivating and interesting people who live and breathe - people you come to care about and want to know. I can't recommend this series highly enough. My only criticism is that there aren't more books in the series.
I found The Marketplace by accident. Right after discovering I had this feelings and most of the "Romance"/ Erotic books were just stuffed with abuse. I was always turned off by how similar the stories were.
This is not any of those. It is insightful and builds your interest in every character. Even if you are submissive and not a slave there is an appreciation in the care of how she writes. No lack of excitement and intrigue. I was sucked into her web. I had to know more about the person who wrote such a piece of fiction that captivated me so. I got the entire series. I follow her on FB. I relish in a person who can open your thought processing of so many topics. But especially the kinky ones.
Plus, who knew I would love a Character so much that it becomes your go to fantasy. Chris Parker is it. Thanks Laura!!
