EXCERPT:

A ripple of something indefinable was moving through his body. He’d wronged her, but who was she, and what had he done?

“This isn’t about me owning this property,” he exclaimed. “Tell me, dammit. What’s going on with you?”

“I’m leaving, that’s what’s going on with me,” she snapped, and turning away she hurried towards the water, but to his surprise she abruptly stopped, spun around, and glowered at him. “I’m glad I was irritating, I’m glad I messed with your perfect little world,” she shouted. “Maybe I was wrong to trespass, but you deserved every aggravating moment, and I might have a sore backside but it’s worth it. It’s time you did some thinking…asshole!”

As she stormed off a second time, he stared after her in complete disbelief. The bikini-clad, beautiful young woman had been the source of ongoing irritation for many weeks, and he’d done what came naturally.  He was a dominant, spanking was as inherent as breathing, but had he acted too quickly? Clearly there was more to the story, but why hadn’t she told him? He thought about chasing after her but changed his mind. She was in a state, and he wasn’t feeling particularly happy either. Striding across to the staircase he punched the code into the gate keypad and started up the steps. His habit was to take them two at a time for exercise. He’d been tempted to put in an electric chair, but he liked the forced workout.

“Avery Madison,” he muttered. “I’d remember that name, but her voice, I know her voice, dammit.”

She had a knock-out body, but how could he recognize any woman wearing such large dark sunglasses? Any time he’d studied her through the telescope they’d covered her face. Had it been purposeful? Had she deliberately been hiding behind them so he wouldn’t recognize her?

“Dammit. I should have made her take them off. What’s wrong with me?”

He couldn’t abide sand in his house, and before entering he made it a point to clean it off with a brush he kept hanging on the railing. As he swept his feet and legs he continued pondering, and moving inside he headed up the stairs to his bedroom. As he dropped his clothes into the bathroom hamper, and washed his hands and face, the young woman’s attitude and words continued to weigh on his mind.

“We’ve met,” he mumbled. “I can feel it, and I know your voice. It’ll come to me. Once I calm down, it’ll come to me.”

Quickly dressing in comfortable slacks and a thin v-neck cashmere sweater, he moved swiftly back to the kitchen and filled a mug with coffee from his built-in coffeemaker. Curious to see if she’d left he carried the hot drink outside to the deck, and walking to the railing he stared down at his beach. To his surprise he saw her standing thigh-deep in the water. The baseball cap was gone, and her long dark hair was flirting with the wind. The sun, huge and low on the horizon, was sending a myriad of colors across the sky and sea. The sight was breathtaking. It was a photograph waiting to be taken.

Hurrying inside he grabbed his phone, moved quickly back to the railing and framed the shot. He snapped the picture, and as he stared at the captured image he felt a strange stirring in his soul. He glanced down at her, and to his surprise she turned around and gazed up at him. Had she felt his eyes on her? The moment felt almost ethereal, and impulsively he raised his hand in a simple wave. As she briefly lifted hers in response, he wanted to run down the stairs and pull her out of the water. Without those damn sunglasses he’d know her, he was sure of it, but she had already turned back to face the sea and was moving slowly forward.

“I’m going to have this printed out,” he mumbled looking back at the photograph, then seeing what looked like a speck of dirt on the glass he brushed it aside.

It didn’t move.

He enlarged the image.

A shard of panic sliced through his being.

It was a shark’s fin, and it was perilously close to shore.

It was perilously close to her.

Blurb:

Married to Jason Lucas, Gemma is handling how to be the wife of a millionaire. In a moment of foolishness, she makes an error of judgement; an act she regrets and she must face the consequences that tumble on afterwards.

Jason married for love, but will he be able to give his wife the romance she desires? His passion to be her Dominant remains strong but can he find a way to meld romance and dominance? After an event leaves him worried for Gemma’s safety, he has the idea to take her to New York City. He asks her to submit to a week of escapism involving domination and submission, bondage and kinky sex. Will she agree to trust him and will she survive his style of domination for the duration?

Most importantly – will their love survive the retribution that awaits them upon their return?

Both characters are sexy and know what they want. Neither are novices. One takes control and the other yields. In the bedroom, there are the erotic scenes of BDSM, discipline and romance.  The dynamic can be intoxicating—and dangerous.

Excerpt (sexy)

 Jason returned, carrying what he needed. Seeing his wife kneeling, eyes closed and patiently waiting, he paused to admire her demureness. The pose was like a beacon—she was mindful of his intentions, his expectations. His thumping heartbeats reminded him of her trust in him—she could have refused to submit and gone to bed. However, that wasn’t the case, she’d prepared herself for him, and for that he was grateful.

“Stand up,” he commanded.

She rose as gracefully as possible and lifting her head, she focused on the scissors in his hand.

“I suspect,” he said quietly, but with pronounced articulation, “that this is a ridiculously expensive dress. I don’t want you to wear it again. I want to keep a memory of it; a memory of tonight.” The way she looked, everything was a snapshot in time, one of many he hoped to create, but this one needed a conclusion, something befitting the occasion—he chose to strip the glamour away.

He gently pushed her backwards onto a table, letting her rest her shoulders on the surface. With slow precision, he began to cut the dress away, starting with the bottom hem, aiming the blades for her cleavage, carefully.

“Keep still I don’t want to cut you,” he whispered when she shivered.

If Gemma was anxious—she didn’t like blades—her trust in him remained solid. She tempered her breathing so that her breasts rose and fell in a shallow pattern, aiding the passage of the scissors. Slowly the fabric split apart to reveal her skimpy underwear and strapless bra.

Jason then snipped through the shoulder straps just above each breast. Once he had completed his dissection, he threw the scissors away to one side, took the two dress halves and peeled them away from her shoulders and arms. Standing back he drank in the splendour of his Gemma’s salacious body.

But only briefly. He ached to be inside her and the urgency was nearly unbearable. He grasped her wrists, pinned them to either side of her head and bent so he could look upon her wide eyes and flushed face, the rise of pink about her cheeks and neck. If things got too much for her, she would show him in her eyes and he would stop—it would be difficult, but he knew he could if he had to.

“Beautiful,” he murmured. “I have to admit to being a little jealous this afternoon. All those men coveting you with their eyes. Most displeasing for me. So I’m going to fuck you here, in this marquee, where all those licentious men roved their eyes over you. Because you are mine.”
