Then Master James ran a long finger down the crease in her buttocks as a test. Kelly held herself perfectly still, thinking he'd stop when he reached her anus. Instead, he spread his fingers to expose it. Unable to restrain the small whimper that escaped her throat, Kelly managed to hold her position.
"Good girl," the Dom praised. And despite her fear and humiliation, Kelly felt caressed by molasses again. "However," he added as a stern caution. "I expect you to remain silent unless I ask you a question, or give you permission to speak." Kelly closed her eyes and concentrated on holding still and keeping quiet, all the while quaking inside with uncertainty over what he intended to do next. Then his fingers slipped even lower as he plunged one deep into her vagina.
Oh God! Kelly's head came up with a gasp. When he rewarded her lapse with a much firmer smack on her left buttock this time, she couldn't restrain her yelp, though she tried not to move since his finger was still embedded inside her. Her nerves were so taut, she couldn't believe she hadn't burst into tears already, but somehow she'd managed to hold it together.
"What did I tell you, sub?" Master James growled as his broad silk-covered chest covered her back, and he spoke directly into her ear. He may have meant the action to be intimidating, but the strength and heat from his firm, muscular body actually calmed her. Even the feel of his finger deep within her, neither pressing nor moving, served to center her.
Taking a deep breath, she answered, "That I am not to move or make a sound, Sir."
"And what did you do?" he demanded, giving her no quarter.
"I moved without permission, gasped, and then yelped, Sir. But I couldn't help myself, Sir. Your first touch surprised me, and your punishment spank hurt… Sir," she added, knowing the excuse wouldn't do shit to save her, yet needing to provide the explanation anyway. Then she tightened her buttocks in self-defense, expecting to feel the full weight of his hand descend sharply again for her impertinence. But nothing happened.
After a long moment, Kelly felt his finger slowly pull out of her, making her acutely aware of a sense of loss and the lack of warmth when he stood up. She remained in position, since he hadn't given her permission to move.
Finally, he said, "Rise up on your knees and present your wrists to me, sub."
Kinky happenings in rural New England.
Kelly Franklin is not your "normal" submissive. In fact, there's some question as to whether she's a submissive at all. She seeks the protection a Dom can give her without paying the price a Dom exacts. Unfortunately, when Master Evans takes her in hand, she pays double.
James Evans has been a police detective for sixteen years and an active participant in the local BDSM scene for even longer. The fact that Kelly Franklin, a pretty and feisty submissive, scurries off like a frightened rabbit every time she sees him, intrigues him both as a Dom and a detective. So, when a fellow police officer mentions he's looking for a new Dom to top Kelly, Jim eagerly signs up for the job.
As a Dom, Jim is pleased by Kelly's open responsiveness, but as a police detective, he is determined to solve the enigma she presents. When he discovers Kelly has not only been keeping secrets from him, she has lied, he is more than willing to drape Kelly bare butt over his knee for a spanking--until she finally tells him the truth.
Though A Dom's Dilemma is Kathryn R. Blake's first BDSM novel and second spanking romance (a romance where spanking takes a prominent place in the plot), it is not the first book she has written in which the hero spanks the heroine. In fact, most of her novels have some sort of spanking in them. To date, all of her heroes are Dominant, alpha males who are extremely protective of the women they love. However, part of that protectiveness includes the desire for a certain amount of control. They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly. In fact, it is something they refuse to tolerate, and will take firm steps to ensure the undesirable behavior is not repeated.
Besides writing, Kathryn enjoys traveling, reading, attending the theatre, and is a passionate lover of animals, so much so that in 2015 a stray cat adopted her. The stray now sleeps in Kathryn's bed. In addition, she has taken up the expensive hobby of making and selling jewelry
