Tokyo, February 2016. Naruhito Honda has been looking for some time now for someone strong enough to 'train', as he calls it, to meet his specific needs. Lana Martin, an Italian expat and one of his students, is taken by surprise by his brusque proposal. Despite being usually the one on top, she accepts the challenge to submit to him after realizing the man rattles quite a few things inside her in a way nobody has before, and that their high-octane tempers are an excellent match.

This unexpected opportunity to dig into her deep-set desires takes an even more surprising turn when Honda's wife, Yuki, inserts herself in the picture. But what could have been merely a torrid lust affair between creative lovers turns into something more intricate and challenging that will change their lives forever. Nature and hostile powers - of the natural and supernatural kind - force the protagonists to confront their deepest traumas, lifelong mortal enemies, and at the end, themselves.

"Temper: Deference" is the first book of "Temper", a four-part series. I will publish chapters progressively, and welcome your feedback and comments!
