Do you ever wonder what the BDSM lifestyle is really like? Penny Armstrong lifts the lid on the lives of ordinary Londoners who just happen to be out and proud on the fetish circuit.

For the four main characters of London Leather, life throws up familiar challenges with some very particular twists. Such as -

• Can twentysomething graduate student Tina find a decent male dom with an ego smaller than Jupiter?
• Will lifestyle sub Chris ‘chebs’ Hamilton have to explain BDSM to the relatives at his wedding?
• Chris’ wife, Laura is hearing her biological clock tick, but in the world’s eyes she’s a scandalous pervert. Is it wise for them to start a family?
• How’s Master Viper (aka Tom), a carpenter, supposed to stay solvent when half the scene expects him to make them dungeon furniture on mates’ rates?

… and other vital questions of kinky life.

Whether you have a dungeon in your cellar or you just want to take a brief walk on the wild side, London Leather is a novel to strip away the sensationalism and half-truths surrounding BDSM and the people who do it. And yes, there are some heavily kinky scenes, as events unfold at a fetish club and a private play party. ‘All thoroughly researched,’ promises Armstrong, who has been active in London BDSM circles for 10 years, and involved in community rights campaigning.

‘I aimed to write a novel that was sexy and emotionally engaging, but also true to life,’ says Armstrong. ‘These days every Western city has a substantial BDSM community but there’s still this absurd stereotype that we’re all damaged victims sneaking around trying to get over our abusive childhoods. I want scene people to read my novel and go “I know these characters!” and non-scene people to be able to see what we’re really like under the leathers.’
