Happy Saturday! Hope you’re having a great summer. Today I thought I’d share a snippet from one of my favorite scenes in Having it All, from my Passion Series. Tiffany and Brianna were under strict instructions from their Doms/HOH’s to stay home from a bacholrette party they wanted to go to, but when the men don’t tell them why, they decide to go anyway. Of course they get caught. Of course they are in big trouble. The problem is this will be Tiffany’s very first severe punishment and she’s not sure if she’s more afraid of the pain that is sure to come or possibly losing Lukus because he is so mad. She’s led to the corner by her Dom’s best friend, Markus, to await Lukus’s arrival.
Markus doesn’t have to tell Tiffany to follow him when he moves eight feet across to the other corner of the nook. Knowing what’s about to happen should make it easier for her. It doesn’t. The shame of being stood in a corner like a naughty child combines with the pressing guilt she feels, delivering her to a level of submission she’s never achieved before. It’s getting real now. Lukus has punished her more than once, but each time she suspected he was going easy on her. Breaking her in. Training her by trying different implements, and never pushing past her comfort zone.
Once he has Tiff in the same vulnerable position, Markus leans in and speaks softly in her ear. “You only have a few minutes before he gets here. It’s time for you to decide if this lifestyle really is for you, because if you decide you want to stay, the rubber is gonna hit the road tonight. Your training time is over. The taking-it-slow games are finished. Tonight will be as real as it’s gonna get with Lukus. Use this corner time to decide once and for all what you want. If you decide you want to leave, I’ll back you up, but know that that’ll be the end of your relationship. If you stay, you’re agreeing to submit to your Dom. I don’t need to tell you what that means.”
Tiffany knows Markus is trying to help, but his words settle over her like a blanket of dread. She already suspected tonight would be her most severe punishment to date, but Markus’ words shock her.
While this is book three in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. Pick up your copy today!
Lukus Mitchell is the owner of The Punishment Pit, Chicago’s top BDSM club. As the Master’s Master, he has enjoyed his freedom to play with a stable of subs over the years. He’s never contemplated settling down before, but is growing increasingly bored of the meek, pliant submissives who fail to challenge him.
Then he meets Tiffany O’Sullivan, a beautiful BDSM novice who has always yearned to explore her edgy dreams of submission, but whose sassy mouth always seems to land her in trouble.
Their attraction to each other is intense and immediate, but Tiffany challenges her new Dom like never before. They may start out at opposite ends of a BDSM tug-o-war, but can they meet somewhere in the middle—and if they do, can they both find happiness with the compromise?
Meanwhile, their best friends, Brianna and Markus Lambert, are still reconnecting after a recent event which almost ended their marriage. As awful as it was, it made them both realize not only how much they love each other, but also how important it is to share your darkest desires with your spouse.
Markus is more than willing to accommodate Brianna’s desire to be dominated in the bedroom, yet the couple has more than a few growing pains to work through as the dynamics of their marriage change from vanilla to D/s, with a sprinkle of DD.
Not content with almost having wrecked the Lamberts’ marriage and threatened Tiffany, Jake Davenport remains a threat in the two couples’ lives and relationships, and Lukus soon discovers that Brianna and Tiffany aren’t the only women Jake is targeting.
Can Tiffany find the strength to overcome her fears in order to let Lukus love her not only as a woman, but as his submissive?
Can Lukus deal with the way his new love challenges him at every turn, forcing him to confront fears he never even knew he had?
Can Markus and Lukus protect the women they love when Jake gets too close for comfort?
