#SPeekSunday - 6/14/15 - A Dom's Dilemma - An exclusive relationship #BDSM #D/s

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 when she asks him if he is married. 

             He gave her a speculative look.  "You think I'd be here now if I was married?"
            She shrugged.  "More than a few of the Doms here are married, which is why they joined the club.  Their wives are vanilla, and would be appalled to learn about their husband's kinkier bent."
            "Well now, I suppose that's true, but I'm not one of 'em.  I am a strong believer in the sanctity of marriage, and I wouldn't marry if I felt my wife couldn't or wouldn't meet my needs in that respect.  So, to answer your question, I am not, nor have I ever been--married.  Not involved with anyone else either for that matter.  As long as we're together, I expect us to be exclusive to each other, and that's not somethin' every sub wants."
            Kelly found his attitude reassuring as well as romantic.  She knew, without asking, that Jim's wife would be subject to his authority and discipline, so she didn't need to go there.  Instead, she decided to learn more about him, as a person, and his background.  "What about your family, Sir?  Are your parents alive?  Do you have any brothers or sisters?"
            Watching him closely, she visualized a shutter coming down over his handsome features.  She thought he would refuse to answer when he shook his head and said, "Not any longer."
            Kelly sensed a deep pain residing within the strong man holding her.  Dismayed that she had somehow saddened him, and wanting to offer comfort, she struggled to free her other arm.  "Please, Sir.  I need the blanket lowered.  Help me, Sir," she begged, flopping around so much, he tightened his hold.

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.
