The Auction

A Novella by

The Auction is the first novella in: Submissive Fairy Tales by Kitty Thomas.

The Auction is a 20,000 word novella. (1-2 hours of reading time, or approximately 80 pages.)


Belle Walker lives in a strict society where women are treated as property, sold to the highest bidder soon after their eighteenth birthday. But the auction isn’t the only danger. Though she’s never seen them, she knows monsters live outside the city. These creatures have allowed the humans a small area to inhabit with the promise to leave them in peace as long as they never cross the boundary. On the day Belle is sold, one of the monsters breaks that promise and enters the city, intent on having her as his own.

"The Auction is a story that beautifully demonstrates how dominance and submission is a universal condition." - Claudia D. Christian, author of VICIOUS BLISS: FALLEN

"Sexy, weird, and super fun--Kitty Thomas Strikes Again." - Tiffany Reisz, author of THE SIREN and SEVEN DAY LOAN, HQN/Spice
