Athena only let her father have his way when he threatens to disown her and keep her from seeing her mother if she refuses to sign the contract for her training.  She goes with the trainer, Barik, whom her father has hired to teach her the Elecian women’s customs in regards to what is expected of them once they marry. 

In Training is a very intense BDSM, multi-partner book that showcases a society whose marriages revolve around structured sexual mores.  The history and the evolution of women are given and you understand why they did this.  Athena questions this and wants to be more than a ‘sexual slave’.  Barik and his two friends are very adamant about her training, but they are also surprised at Athena’s reaction to it. 

I was still a little surprised by the ending, though there were clues about where Athena’s and Barik’s relationship was headed.  Be aware that the sex scenes are very intense and some of them are hardcore BDSM, as well.  This is one I will be reading again.
