He demanded her obedience, but what she wanted was his love.
It's Sneak Peek Sunday again and that means I get to share another 6 paragraphs from one of my books. Yay!
My submission for this week is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, a BDSM/spanking novel that is sometimes playful, sometimes serious and sometimes terrifying, published by Blushing Books. Kelly and Jim, the two main characters, were secondary characters in Arrested by Love. Though this story stands on its own, if you read Arrested by Love, you'll most likely recognize some of the scenes, since we see a little bit of Kyle and Tiffany in this book, too.
In this excerpt, near the end of Chapter Five, Jim Evans and Kelly Franklin are together at "The Velvet Chains," a BDSM club where they met that evening. Kelly is receiving some aftercare after a session of intensive medical play she did with Jim that seemed a lot more real than play. Aftercare is an important part of the BDSM experience. Both the Dom and the sub seek reassurance from the other. Jim enjoys holding Kelly, and she likes being in his arms, so this is a quiet period of reflection and getting to know each other. Problem is, Jim has just asked Kelly who had hurt her through her backdoor, but she's been maintaining all along that she's never had anal sex. Realizing she's been caught in a lie, she really does not want to answer, so she asks if they can postpone that particular question until later.
"We can. However, I need to say that I'm not at all pleased you lied to me, Kelly. Normally, that would earn you a ten swatter minimum, bare butt over my knee."
She glanced at his set features, then asked, "How did you know I was hurt?"
"I saw some evidence of rough play when I examined you, but you just confirmed it yourself now, darlin'."
Groaning at her own foolishness, she closed her eyes.
"I've made a lot of concessions for you tonight, Kelly. I really shouldn't give you this one, too, but I'm gonna."
When she pressed her face to his shoulder in gratitude, he held her close and patted her back. "I may be strict, but I'm not cruel, and I can actually be pretty reasonable at times."
Kelly wants to know more about her new Dom, and at the moment he seems amenable to answering her questions. However, the questions he wants her to answer, make Kelly more than a little uncomfortable. Still his strong arms have her in a gentle cradle, and she wants to stay with him.
