Happy Saturday to my fellow hoppers! Hope you are enjoying this week’s great line up of snippets. Today I’m sharing a bit more from Protecting it All, book four in the Passion Series.
This book is the darkest, most suspenseful book I’ve written to date, which makes me love this scene all the more. It is one of the few light-hearted parts in the book. In this scene, Markus and Aiden are at the loft with all of the women, making sure they are safe, while Lukus and Derek are in California tracking down Jake Davenport. Rachel is missing her daddy and her nightly spankings. What’s a girl to do?
“Master Markus,” she said.
He prodded her. “What can I do for you, honey?”
She shuffled her feet nervously, acting exactly like the four-year-old little girl she loved her husband to treat her as. “Well, I was… a naughty girl… and Daddy said I can’t have any ice cream, but I really want ice cream.”
“Sorry, kiddo, but you have to listen to your daddy and you know it,” Markus said.
“I know, but there is only one way I can have ice cream and, well… only you can help.” Markus was curious and before he could ask, she held out her smartphone. He took it and read the text message on the screen.
Text from Derek:
‘You know the rules. You missed your nap today. You’ve earned a naughty-girl spanking. No ice cream until your punishment is over.’
It took a few seconds for it to sink in. Markus looked up see her pleading eyes. “I see. And does your daddy know you’re asking for my help?” he said.
Too bad I couldn’t share more. I loved how this scene plays out 🙂 Maybe I’ll post the rest of it for tomorrow’s Six of the Best Hop 🙂 You better yet, buy it now!
Haven’t read books 1 – 3 yet? No problem. They are on sale in a boxed set:
Jake Davenport is still on the loose, and Lukus Mitchell and Markus Lambert have had enough. They won’t rest until the sadistic Dom who is threatening their women is behind bars…or dead. They don’t care which. Lukus assembles a team of his top security personnel and heads to California leaving Markus and Tiffany’s cop brother, Aiden, in Chicago to keep Tiffany and Brianna safe, locked down in the loft at The Punishment Pit.
Derek’s brother Dylan is already there, staking out the predator, feeling helpless as he watches Jake lure innocent women into his nest of consensual, but brutal, sexual websites. When Jake turns his eye to Hannah Martine, Dylan decides he’s done with just watching.
Hannah moved across the country trying to escape the demons of her past, but the fresh start she’s hoping for is cut short when Jake presses her to accept a tempting job that will solve her financial woes. Once he gets her alone, the sadist uses humiliation, drugs and brutal force to try to bend Hannah to his will.
Everything comes to a head when Lukus and the gang realize only someone on the inside can get close enough to collect evidence of the illegal activities needed to put Davenport away. Dylan is furious they are even considering sending the innocent woman he has strong feelings for anywhere near the monster trying to break her.
Will Hannah have the strength to walk back into the demon’s lair? And even if she does, will the threat against Brianna and Tiffany be dissolved? Jake is obsessed with the women from his past, and as authorities close in, he will become desperate for his revenge against Lukus and Markus.
