Welcome back to #SatSpanks! I’m continuing on with the scene I posted last week. Tiffany and Brianna are in big trouble for going out to a bachelorette party. If you recall, we left Tiffany standing in the corner, waiting for Lukus to arrive to dish out her punishment. Today’s scene is from Lukus’ POV.
The sight of her pressed into the corner like a naughty sub stirs confusing feelings. When she turns to peek at him, her vulnerability cuts him. His breath catches at the sight of her tear-stained face and mussed hair. Her lips quiver, and all Lukus can think of is kissing them until they’re tender. Her name escapes in a groan as he rushes towards her. “Aw, Tiff.”
She breaks her pose to rush into his arms. He squeezes her so tight she groans under the pressure. She reciprocates, holding onto him as if her life depended on never letting go. Through her sobs, he hears words that turn him cold.
“Please, Lukus, don’t hate me. I know I disappointed you, but I won’t be able to take it if you tell me you hate me. I can take anything but that. I’m so sorry. I promise you, I didn’t know it was that big of a deal.”
His mind reels. How could she not know how he feels about her?
‘Maybe because you’ve never told her, sport. Not clearly. Fix it, asshole.’
She launches into a new wave of apologies before he stifles her, capturing her trembling lips in a passionate kiss. He’s taken her by surprise, forcing his tongue deep to tangle with her own. She tastes like mint and vodka. He crushes her body against his own as he lets their shared passion run wild, and feels her legs failing to support her. By the time he ends the kiss, she’s lying boneless in his arms. She doesn’t know it, but she’s just subconsciously demonstrated her surrender to his authority over her body.
He weaves his fingers through her long, blonde hair, yanking her head back, forcing her to look up into his eyes. He’s relieved to see the fear gone from her gaze.
“Are you listening to me, Tiffany?”
Her voice is small. “Yes, sir.”
“That’s good, because I have something important to say, and I’d hate for you to miss it. Although, I do plan on saying it often.” He sees her confusion and can’t stop his grin. “Don’t you ever ask me again if I hate you. That insults me, and it insults what we have together. People who hate each other don’t share kisses like we just shared. Got it?”
She manages to nod slowly. It looks like she’s trying to make sense of his cryptic words. He decides to help her.
“I thought something bad had happened to you, baby. I’ve spent hours in hell, beating myself up for not keeping you safe, for not leading you better, so you knew how important it was for you to obey me today. My brain has run amok with a million what-ifs, and you know what? Not once did I think about hating you. On the contrary, you know what I realized today?”
She still doesn’t seem to trust her voice, opting to slowly shake her head instead.
“Today is the day I realized that, for the first time in my thirty-four years, I’m totally in love. I honestly wasn’t sure it could happen to me, but it has. So, hate? Never, baby. I love you, Tiffany Lauren O’Sullivan.”
Another big bad Dom brought to his knees by love. Of course Tiffany’s ass still gets roasted for disobeying, but at least now she knows Lukus loves her.
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?
