#SPeekSunday - 5/24/15 - A Dom's Dilemma - Information exchange - a delicate balancing act #BDSM #Spanking


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, when Jim asks Kelly a question she really doesn't want to answer, her evasion serves as an admission she's lied to him.

Normally, a Dom would punish a sub for that infraction, but Jim has told Kelly he'll give her a onetime pass. Before they do anything else, however, he suggests they get to know each other a little better.  He begins by asking her some pertinent questions, which eventually lead to the topic of trust.  When Kelly admits that she probably trusts him more not to hurt her than anyone else, he's pleased, but remains cautious.  He informs her, in no uncertain terms, that he can be a controlling SOB who expects a lot, but he gives back in return.  If she chooses to remain as his sub, he'll expect her to be open and honest with about everything in her life. Even those things she might not want to share, but for the moment he's content to simply know more about what she likes. 


             She smiled at the odd change in subject, but was pleased he didn't try to push her for a commitment she wasn't yet ready to give.
            "To be honest, Sir, I have a really bad sweet tooth, and I love ├ęclairs."
            "Good to know.  I'll keep that in mind in case I decide to offer you a treat.  Personally, even though you didn't ask, my favorite is Texas chili, made proper, not the way you pansy easterners make it."
            Kelly laughed.  "Somehow, Sir, I am not the least bit surprised by that confession.  May I ask how old you are, Sir?"
            "You may.  I'm thirty-five."
            Only seven years older than she was.  Kelly liked that.  "Are you, or have you ever been married, Sir?"


Kelly knows she makes a lousy sub.  She has a temper and a mouth that constantly get her into trouble, but she sees something in Jim that makes her want more of the type of mastering only he could give her, except she's not sure she can give him all the honesty he expects in return.

  1. Great except Kathryn. I love this moment of lightness between them, though I wonder if the mood will change with her last question. Jim's texas chili comment made me giggle.
