#WIPitUP - 3/30/16 - A Dom's Dilemma - No touching without permission #BDSM #Spanking

He demanded her obedience, but what she wanted was his love.

It's WIP it UP Wednesday, and that means I get to share another teasing excerpt 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 Ten, Detective Jim Evans is tending to Kelly Franklin after he's administered an exceptionally harsh punishment for her defiance and disobedience.

An experienced Dom, Jim has no problem punishing a sub when she's been naughty, but Kelly chose to deliberately defy an order after he took pains to stress her disobedience would carry a significant penalty. Unfortunately, Kelly thought he'd forgive her for the surprise visit she decided to pay him at his precinct, which forced Jim to follow through on his promise. Afterward,  he needs to make sure his lesson stuck, since he never wants to be so harsh with her ever again.

             Kelly gave another long sigh.  She really didn't want to do this anymore, especially since the last lesson was the one that hurt the most.  Finally, she said, "Never display a show of affection toward you in public."
            When he didn't answer for a moment, she got worried.  That was what she'd done that had gotten him so angry, wasn't it?  All she'd wanted was to show him how deeply she felt and he'd pushed her away.
            She must have tensed, because he said, "Easy, darlin'.  Be still now.  I'm not angry, I'm just thinkin'."
            "Wasn't that right?" she asked, turning to gaze up at him.
            He appeared to be seriously considering her question.  "Well, I do believe it was a lesson you learned today, although it's not one I meant to teach."
            "What do you mean?"
            "Kelly, you're a very demonstrative person, which isn't necessarily bad, even though it is inappropriate for our current situation."
            She shook her head.  "I'm not sure I understand.  Do you want me to touch you or not?"
            He bent down to place a kiss on her hair.  "Darlin', of course I want you to touch me, but you shouldn't do it without my permission.  You do know that is one of the rules, don't you, Kelly?"

Kelly knows she makes a lousy sub.  She has a temper and a mouth that constantly get her into trouble, but despite the harshness of Jim's punishment she sees something in the Dom that makes her want him all the more. Problem is, he may decide he doesn't want her.

  1. Following the rules can be tough... especially when you have to go against your own personality in order to comply. I feel for poor Kelly... I'd be in the same boat :)

  2. My gut kind of ached for her in this scene. I loved her vulnerability and neediness in this book, even though she was a bit clingy at times. Jim was always in tune with her moods too, which I appreciated. A LOT of emotional tenderness between them.

  3. Thank you Christina and Kim. Kim, I do agree Kelly was clingy, which is why I'm thinking of doing a prequel to show some of her history and partly explain why she's the way she is.

  4. This is why I don't think I would ever be a good sub. I'm stubborn. I have this things that if you are mine, I should be able to touch you when I want, especially if you can touch me when you want. I can see how her personallity causes her confusion. Great snippet. :)


I love hearing from readers, so thank you for making my day! Writers with any thoughts at all (Naughty or otherwise) love comments, and I'm no exception.
