#SPeekSunday - 8/2/15 - A Dom's Dilemma - Dealing with pain from the past #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. Curious about her new Dom as well, Kelly asks him whether he has any brothers or sisters. Seeing a shutter slam down over his features, she realizes she may have opened a wound from his past and struggles to get free of the blanket confining her.

            "Whoa there, girl.  Slow down and give me a chance.  No need to work yourself into a tizzy, just let me take care of it."
            Though Kelly immediately stopped fidgeting, she waited impatiently as he unwrapped the blanket from around her chest and shoulders to release her.  The moment she was free, Kelly swung both her arms about his neck and hugged him tightly.
            "What is it, darlin'?" he asked, wrapping his arms around her.
            "I'm sorry," she answered, giving him a kiss on his neck.
            He patted her back.  "There's no need for you to be--"  He cut off his own words and hugged her.  "Why thank you, Kelly girl, for tryin' to comfort me.  It's not necessary, but I'm grateful all the same."

            Gently drawing her arms down, he sat her again on his lap and wrapped the top half of her blanket loosely about her shoulders, leaving her breasts uncovered.  While caressing and gently squeezing her nipples, he said, "The plain fact is their deaths still bother me, so I don't like talkin' about 'em much."

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.
