While negotiating a trade agreement with the planet Dezra, Jana falls in love and agrees to marry Qay, the representative for the planet. On her way to the wedding, she's shocked to learn that the customs on Dezra are different from Earth--on their planet, the best man has the right to sleep with the bride if he chooses.
Jana's both angered and fearful when she learns who the best man is--somebody she's met before, and doesn't like. But custom dictates her and Zyn sleep together, and she's willing to make the sacrifice to be with her true love, Qay.
What she doesn't realize is the level of pleasure she finds in Zyn's dominating hands. Along with Qay, both men bring her to the pinnacles of pleasure, and Jana allows herself to submit to her darkest desires.
Jana's not too happy with Qay when he tells her she'll have to sleep with the best man, who happens to be someone she's afraid of. She's met Zyn before, and he creeped her out. But because she loves Qay, she's willing to do what she must. What she doesn't factor in is her love of the kinky, especially when Zyn pulls out the riding crop. This story has some light BSDM elements to it. I enjoyed the story, and it's always fun when an author spins a believable society so different from ours, complete with bizarre and sometimes taboo customs people from Earth wouldn't approve of.
