#SatSpanks - 12/9/17 - Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story - Kelly is pushing her luck #Ageplay #BDSM



When childhood is denied you, sometimes you need to learn how to be little

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

My submission for this week is an excerpt from my newest release. Similar to Kelly's experience, Learning to be Little is my first attempt at depicting the dynamics of age play, and because it occurs in Kelly's past with her first, but not last, Dom, it is also a little different from other age play stories available today. However, I hope readers who enjoy age play and D/s will find their journey into Kelly's past an entertaining, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, adventure. 



This snippet takes place early in Chapter 11. On their fourth Wednesday out together, Kelly and her daddy are approached by another couple for the first time. Kelly, takes an immediate dislike to the other Little, who dressed like she was six, but looked nearly twenty, making her two years older than Kelly. And with the simpering smiles this little Susie-Q was giving Kelly's daddy, Kelly decided to challenge the other Little, which gets her in hot water with Daddy.



"I think you'd best remain quiet, young lady. Looks like I'll need to give you another lesson in proper etiquette once we're home."
Kelly frowned. Not what she wanted to hear at all. "I'm sorry, sir."
"Forgive her, Trent. Manners are not Kelly's strong suit."
Trent Cartwright chuckled. "Susie and I had a small contretemps before we saw you, so I understand entirely. May I speak to your young miss?"
"If you wish, though I can't guarantee you'll care for her replies."
"I'll chance it. Kelly, do you like dolls?"
Kelly's eyebrows drew together. Was that a trick question or something? "Yes, sir."
"Good. Susie hasn't been treating hers properly, so would you like one or two of them?"
"Daddy!" Susie protested. Maybe that's why the young miss had been pouting earlier.
"Hush, Susie. I warned you what would happen if you didn't treat your things better."
Susie pushed her bottom lip out in an unmistakable pout and stamped a patent leather Mary Jane on the sidewalk. Little Miss Susie-Q was throwing a temper tantrum on the street. This should be interesting. Kelly glanced up at Mr. Cartwright to see how he reacted to his young miss's public display, surprised to find the man smiling down at his little girl with indulgent patience. Then he gazed at Graham White again. "If you don't mind, I'd like to teach Susie that actions have consequences. Perhaps the two of you could join us for tea this afternoon?"


Kelly enjoys going out with her new daddy, but she doesn't care for other little misses flirting with him. Unfortunately, rudeness is never acceptable, as Kelly knows, which means she will be most firmly reminded again if she doesn't change her attitude quickly.




She needed a savior, but she wasn't looking for a second daddy

An only child born to two only children, six-year-old Kelly Franklin finds herself at the mercy of the state when both her parents are brutally murdered. As a difficult, unwanted child, distrustful of strangers and haunted by gruesome blood-filled nightmares, Kelly's nightly screams of terror frighten the other children so badly, she becomes more trouble than any foster family was willing to take on. 

When Child Services attempts to place her in a Residential Treatment Center next, Kelly's growing mistrust has her running away again and again. Homeless and penniless with no relatives to harbor her, and a penchant for escaping her caretakers, Kelly is finally handed over to one of the few parish orphanages remaining in existence until age at 18, when she is released. 


Possessing only a little money, few skills and even fewer resources, Kelly's attempts at job hunting end up with her prowling the streets in desperation until a wealthy stranger makes her a proposition she is too cold and hungry to refuse. Though, it isn't until he takes her home that she realizes just what it is she's gotten herself into.



Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly is one of my favorite characters. She can be such a brat at times, which is something her champion Graham White refuses to tolerate. The majority of this story is the earliest, chronologically, since it occurs in Kelly's past, but it is the most recent book in the series. Confused much?

So, if you want to know more about this bratty, sometimes submissive adult little girl, she first appears in Arrested by Love as a secondary character, but like all good primary characters she insisted on having her own story with her new Dom, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Its cover is pictured above.

Though Learning to be Little will be the newest book in the series, it actually begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, then takes the reader into Kelly's past in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.

Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story is available on Kindle Unlimited, and for purchase on Amazon.

Mistletoe, Holly and Poinsettias - Find out why they are associated with Christmas #Holiday #Tradition



First we break for a commercial. The Mischief Under the Mistletoe Anthology is now available for order at Amazon. If you pre-ordered it earlier, it should be on your device already. If you haven't, why not? For this week only, it will be on sale for 99 cents, then it's up to $6.99. More money for me, if you wait, but I'm only thinking of you...

Fourteen fierce festive stories in one AMAZING anthology extravaganza, fresh from international and number one bestselling authors alongside hot new talent! Editor’s Note: These delightfully naughty Christmas spanking stories feature scorching romance and BDSM. Some involve age play, all involve spanking. There’s also a bit of LGBT+, some magic, and a drunken incident with a photocopier.

AVAILABLE NOW: ON AMAZON 

Are you excited, yet? If you can't tell, we are. And to celebrate the release of Mischief under the Mistletoe, and my holiday novella, "A Naughty New Year" that's included in it, I thought I'd share some fascinating tidbits I've gathered about the three plants I associate most with the holiday.  Mistletoe, Holly and the Poinsettia. 

Mistletoe

The Druids believed mistletoe fell from heaven and grew onto a tree that sprang from Earth. Mistletoe thus represented the joining of heaven and earth, and God's reconciliation with mankind. A kiss under mistletoe symbolized acceptance and reconciliation.

The custom of using mistletoe to decorate houses at Christmas is a survival of the Druid and other pre-Christian traditions. According to custom, the mistletoe must not touch the ground between its cutting and its removal as the last of Christmas greens at Candlemas; it may remain hanging through the year, often to preserve the house from lightning or fire, until it is replaced the following Christmas Eve. Although the tradition has spread throughout the English-speaking world, it is largely unknown in the rest of Europe.

The Greeks also thought that it had mystical powers and down through the centuries it became associated with many folklore customs. In the Middle Ages and later, branches of mistletoe were hung from ceilings to ward off evil spirits. In Europe they were placed over house and stable doors to prevent the entrance of witches. It was also believed that the oak mistletoe could extinguish fire.

In Scandinavia, mistletoe was considered a plant of peace, under which enemies could declare a truce or warring spouses kiss and make-up. Later, the eighteenth-century English were credited with giving the plant a certain magical appeal they called a kissing ball. At Christmas time a young lady standing under a ball of mistletoe, brightly trimmed with evergreens, ribbons, and ornaments, cannot refuse to be kissed. Such a kiss could mean deep romance or lasting friendship and goodwill.

The earliest documented case of kissing under the mistletoe dates from 16th century England, a custom that was apparently very popular at that time. According to custom, a man and a woman who meet under a hanging of mistletoe were obliged to kiss. The custom may be of Scandinavian origin. It was described in 1820 by American author Washington Irving in his "The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon":
"The mistletoe is still hung up in farm-houses and kitchens at Christmas, and the young men have the privilege of kissing the girls under it, plucking each time a berry from the bush. When the berries are all plucked the privilege ceases."


Poinsettia

This plant's association with Christmas began in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus' birthday. The tale goes that the child was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson "blossoms" sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias. From the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations.

The shape of the poinsettia flower and leaves are sometimes thought as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem which led the Wise Men to Jesus. The red colored leaves symbolize the blood  sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus. The white leaves represent his purity.In Spain it is known as "Flor de Pascua", meaning "Easter flower". In both Chile and Peru, the plant became known as "Crown of the Andes".

Poinsettias are popular Christmas decorations in homes, churches, offices, and elsewhere across North America. In the United States, December 12 is National Poinsettia Day.

Holly

In pagan times, Holly was thought to be a male plant and Ivy a female plant. An old tradition from the Midlands of England says that whichever one was brought into the house first over winter, tells you whether the man or woman of the house would rule that year! But it was unlucky to bring either into a house before Christmas Eve.

Today, Christians consider holly symbolic of Jesus Christ in two ways. The red berries represent the blood that Jesus shed on the cross on the day he was crucified. Legend states that holly berries were originally white, but that the blood Christ shed for the sins of humankind stained the berries forever red. A holly's pointed leaves symbolize the crown of thorns placed on Jesus' head before he died on the cross.

The early Christians also believed the fact that the Holly helps in driving away the evil spirits as it is endowed with some magical powers. So, during Christmas time, the Holly was usually hung on doors, windows to prevent the entry of witches and evil spirits.

In Scandinavia the plant is known as the Christ Thorn. 

So, now that you've learned a lot more about these Christmas Plants than you ever really wanted to know, why don't you hop on over to Amazon for a little Mischief? You won't be disappointed.

#MFRWHooks - 12/6/17 - A Dom's Dilemma - Kelly refuses to say what happened #BDSM #SpankingRomance


Erotic Torture: A pleasure so intense it borders on painful

Welcome back to Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with some tantalizing tidbits in our books.


My post for this Wednesday is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, an erotic BDSM/spanking novel 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. Both books have recently been re-edited and revised and given new covers.



This scene in A Dom's Dilemma occurs near the end of Chapter Six.  Jim and Kelly are just starting to get to know each other when Jim discovers Kelly is still sore from the enema and examination he gave her a half-hour ago.  She knows that means he will want to examine and treat her, but she really wants to avoid having him touch her back there again, if it's at all possible.  It isn't, but Jim compromises by making the experience as pleasurable as he can.  However, he's a Dom, so there are some rules Kelly will need to follow.  Rules like forbidding her to come until he gives his permission. The sort of rules he fully expects her to break. Of course, when she does, a good Dom needs to provide the proper discipline his sub requires and expects, but he can also add pleasure to the experience, if he chooses. Afterward, he holds, cuddles, and reassures her until her tears have dried. 

Though Kelly came with his finger deep inside her, she had been hurt so badly during anal play, she'd needed surgery. As a consequence, hearing Master James tell her he intended to pursue having sex with her in her now puckering butt, scared her, and more than a little. He picks up on her reaction and asks if she will now tell him what had happened to her, but she fears his reaction, so she politely refuses.


         His eyes radiating strong disapproval, he said, "Well, since you refuse to say what happened, I've got to assume there's no problem. Because a good sub would never hold something so important back from her Dom. Right?"
When Kelly winced, her clever Dom reached over and pinched her chin. "You know I'd be real gentle with you, don't you?"
She nodded reluctantly. He would be as gentle as possible, but as sore as his exam left her, she also knew sex with him was going to hurt, since she'd place the instrument he'd used into the peewee division if the two were ever entered into a contest of comparisons. The long, thick object pressing against her hip was far too intimidating, by her way of reckoning, and she wasn't a quailing virgin by any means. 


Jim is into control, not pain, and he wants Kelly to find pleasure in everything they do together, but the Dom in him insists upon taking the lead.  Things will happen his way, and on his terms.  End of story. Although Jim finds a great deal of satisfaction in Kelly's enthusiastic response, and her trust is of paramount importance to him, his role as a Dom requires him to hold her accountable when she lies or disobeys. And he knows the cuddly armful currently resting on his lap is hiding the truth from him.

#WIPitUP - 12/6/17 - Arrested by Love - Tiffany locks Kyle out of their bedroom #DD #SpankingRomance


WIP: Work in progress.  WIP it up Wednesday is a hop where writers share portions of the project they're working on with readers.  I really like the idea because it allows me to share something that's still in the creative stage as well as work behind the scenes as a prompt to keep me writing. However, today I've decided to also share from my first spanking novel "Arrested by Love," that has been revised, re-edited and given a new cover. Oh, and should I mention that it's also FREE for a limited time?



In Arrested by Love, Kyle and Tiffany have been having problems, but they are attempting a reconciliation after Kyle basically kidnapped her from her home, with her father's grudging approval, and taken her to see a doctor. Tiffany had become very ill during their separation and Kyle is determined to take care of her in every way she needs. Though Tiffany isn't a true submissive, she is trying to smooth things over with Kyle, so she's working hard to keep her bratty tendencies at bay. However, there's only so much a girl can do, and after reminding her she might be pregnant, Kyle makes things worse by threatening her with a spanking if she doesn't behave more responsibly. Her pride wounded by the suspicion she doesn't matter to Kyle as much as the possible fetus in her womb, Tiffany reacts badly to his show of dominance.


Sighing, Kyle decided to give her a few minutes to calm down. He could hear her sobbing, and a part of him felt guilty for punishing her small temper tantrum after she'd been so ill. He had tempered his strokes, making sure she'd feel the slap of his palm without it really hurting her. As punishment, it had been mild, though he doubted she viewed it that way.
After he'd poured a bowl of cereal and a glass of juice for her, he went and knocked on the bedroom door. "Tiffany?"
"Go away," she shouted, sounding more like a petulant child than a twenty-one-year-old woman.
"No. I'm staying." He tried the door handle. It was locked, so he took three more deep breaths. She had locked him out of his own bedroom. All right, their bedroom, but still...
"Tiffany, I'm going to give you until the count of three to unlock this door. If you refuse to do it by then, I will break it down, and you will get twenty more much harder swats than the ones I gave you in the kitchen. Do you understand me?"
"Just go away," she repeated on a sob. "I don't want to talk to you."
"Maybe not, but you are going to, young lady. And I'm not leaving this door until you've unlocked it. Furthermore, I'm going to call someone in to remove all the locks from the doors in this apartment, since I seem to be living with a cranky little girl who uses them inappropriately. You have until three, Tiffany. One."
"You can't threaten to solve every problem and issue we have by turning me over your knee."
"Actually, it's worked pretty well in the past. And I don't believe in fixing things that don't appear to be broken." He heard the door being unlocked but waited to let her settle herself before he entered.

 

Kyle enjoys Tiffany's sass to a point. The fact that she's feeling better has him in a much better mood. And though he's insisting on maintaining a DD relationship with his girl, he gives her as much leeway as his dominance will allow. However, his patience does have limits, and she needs to be more adult now that they suspect she is pregnant. So, her petulant response carries consequences.

Guest Post - 12/5/17 - Submission, Secrets & the Soldier by Kryssie Fortune #Suspense #BDSM

Today the talented Kryssie Fortune is on our guest couch with an excerpt from her Erotic Suspense novel, "Submission, Secrets & the Soldier."


Sharing an apartment with the man she loves is hard. Moving out is harder.

Excerpt:

Katherine parked outside the auto shop, lugged her suitcase from the trunk, and unlocked the door. The stairs were steep and seemingly endless. Once she’d manhandled her bag to the top, she leaned against the wall, panting and wishing she’d snatched something to eat earlier.
A noise from the back of the apartment had her spinning around. “Who’s there?”
Luke Roberts sauntered from the bathroom, fresh from the shower. He’d slicked back his hair, and a towel looped loosely around his waist. “Kathryn Johnson? What are you doing here? You still craving that spanking, maybe?”
She couldn’t take her eyes off his damp chest. And damn, that drop of water running down his pecs enthralled her. Even the red scars mottling the left side of his body seemed sexy, but she’d never seen anyone with so many. His legs were bare too, but the towel couldn’t hide his erection. Then he went and mentioned a spanking. Yes, please.
Her eyes glazed as she pictured herself naked, draped over his lap with her hands on the floor and her ass in the air. She imagined the sting of the first slap, and the way it would echo as his palm struck her bare flesh. Thoughts of him turning her ass red whetted her sensual appetite. God, after the confrontation with her mom, she really needed that spanking to settle her nerves.
She’d never known a few simple words and a sexy grin could make her pussy damp and turn her nipples into hard peaks. Her worries evaporated into a lust-fueled haze, but as she blinked back to normal, she stared at the naked man in her apartment. Her common sense told her to pull back, but she wanted to tug the towel from his waist, drop to her knees, and suck his cock. Even stopping herself from reaching out and stroking his massive chest took effort.
She felt her cheeks heat and knew she’d blushed. “That spanking? Oh! Not here, not now. Only… Damn it, I didn’t come to discuss my needs, but… No. What are you doing here?”
Her gaze dropped. The scars on his face paled to the wounds covering his left leg and the left side of his chest. Red and deep, they pitted every inch of flesh. Tiny patches of shiny skin, badly healed burns, shone between the scars.
Much as his injuries roused her sympathy, they added another layer to the sexy Dom teasing her about a spanking. His mental toughness must be amazing to have survived such severe injuries. No wonder he had flashbacks.
Kathryn yearned to reach out and run her hand down his scars and tell him they didn’t matter—but they clearly did to him. Unsure how to reassure him, she said nothing. Besides, her brain couldn’t move past that spanking he promised her. Maybe afterward, he’d take her to bed. Good grief, screwing a stranger? What am I thinking?



Blurb:

Luke Roberts, a former army mechanic, has a new sub. She's shy and inexperienced, but willing. As he teaches her about sensation play, she fears he'll really hurt her and screams her safewords at him. Her reaction causes Luke to have a flashback. Although he's clawing his way back to normal, he suffers from PTSD. Determined to get well, he contacts a PTSD specialist in Westhorpe Ridge.

Kathryn Johnson has visited a BDSM club three times. When she hooks up with Luke Roberts, he unintentionally terrifies her. She swears off spankings and goes home to Westhorpe Ridge. The last person she expects to see there is Luke Roberts.

Circumstances force them to share an apartment. Can Luke protect her when danger threatens? Or is she just a temporary sub in residence?

About the Author:

Kryssie is never seen without her kindle. She reads everything and anything she can get her hands on. When she discovered hot, sexy reads, she felt like she’d found her home. The only books she hates are the ones that end with a cliff hanger or have unhappy endings.

Kryssie tries to set her stories in places she’s explored. Hopefully, it adds color to her writing. Anything can spark a story idea. Sometimes she takes liberties though. The North Yorkshire town of Whitby is one of her favorite places. To keep the details of her imaginary town, Westhorpe Ridge consistent, she mentally shunted Whitby over the Atlantic and renamed it Westhorpe Ridge.

When not writing, Kryssie loves to walk on the beach of home town, Bridlington, or potter in her garden. Popping down to London to see her family is her favorite thing to do.

Kryssie currently has thirteen books on general release along with a boxed e-book of the first three Westhorpe Ridge stories. All her stories are M/ F or M/M/F. All are edited by publishing houses in either the UK or the USA. While her stories sizzle with sex, plot comes before bed. Life’s always an adventure going on in Kryssie’s world.

#SatSpanks - 12/2/17 - A Naughty New Year - Doms always have the last word #BDSM #Holidays



Even good deeds can get you punished

Reading this material at Work could get you spanked.

Welcome to the Saturday Spankings blog hop.  My stories are all M/f with the dominant male determined to protect the woman he cares for and loves, or grows to love, by doing whatever it takes to ensure her safety and continued health.  This includes administering a spanking when she needs one.  

The story I've chosen to share today is  titled "A Naughty New Year, " which is part of the "Mischief Under the Mistletoe" anthology. The novella is in two parts with the second centering around the day after New Year's, and the task of putting away the Christmas decorations. 



Kelly Evans is nearly six months pregnant when her Dom husband, Jim, suggests they invite their closest friends over for a private New Year's Eve party. Just a friendly get together, nothing kinky, and no champagne for either of the girls, since Kelly's friend, Tiffany, was a month along further than she was. Of course the two girls believe their Dom husbands are being unreasonable, so they do what they want and face the consequences afterward.

Now, Christmas and New Year's are over and Kelly feels a little let down. Jim was due home any minute, when the phone rings.


"Sorry, darlin', but looks like I won't be getting' back until late. Don't wait up. You need your rest."
She reflexively rubbed her slightly rounded stomach, still amazed by the thought of a little person growing inside her. "I want to wait up for you," she argued, certain as soon as the sentence edged past her lips she'd be out-voted.
"No. And that's your Dom talkin', not your husband. Disobey me, and there will be consequences, my lovely."
Her mouth curved in a half-smile despite the small twinge of reminder those words brought. "What sort of consequences?" she asked, lowering her voice to a silky purr.
He paused for a moment, then growled, "Most painful ones, I promise you." The vow was delivered in a deeper register, which created a flutter in Kelly's lower region. 



Kelly had known there would be consequences for drinking. Jim had warned her, but she still feels badly about letting him down. She's also more than a little restless once the holidays are over, and the fact he'll be home late doesn't sit well with her, though she understands his work as a detective is important to the community as well as him. He often worked late hours, so it seemed only right that she do something to help lessen the load on his shoulders. 



Note about the characters in this story: 

Kelly and Jim are two of my favorite characters. Kelly can be such a brat at times and Jim gives her a lot of leeway, but even he has limits. This story is the latest, chronologically, in their time line, though by the time its published it should be the fourth in a series subtitled Unexpected Consequences.

So, if you want to know how their sometimes stormy relationship started, they first appeared in Arrested by Love as secondary characters, but like all good primary characters insisted on their own story, which developed into A Dom's Dilemma. Both books, originally released in 2010, are being numbered, reedited and reissued with new covers in late November, along with a new third book, entitled Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. Though the newest book in the series, Learning to be Little begins immediately after A Dom's Dilemma, it then takes the reader into Kelly's past, where she shares her introduction to age play and BDSM with Graham White in a sequel/prequel. The story is a departure for me in that the majority of its chronological time line takes place before the two books I've already published, but it belongs in the middle of the series. I expect two, possibly three more books in the series to be available in the near future.

#MFRWHooks - 11/29/17 - Learning to be Little - Kelly has an important decision to make #AgePlay #BDSM


She needed a savior, but she wasn't looking for a second daddy

Welcome back to Book Hooks, a regular Wednesday feature! In this blog loop, we hope to provide you with some tantalizing tidbits in our books.

My submission for this week's Book Hooks is from my newest release, Learning to be Little: Kelly's Story. It's the sequel/prequel to my only BDSM novel, A Dom's Dilemma, and Book 3 in my Unexpected Consequences series.


Cold and hungry, Kelly Franklin was down on her luck when a gentleman stepped in, paid for an hour of her time, fed her, then made a proposition she never expected, but couldn't afford to turn down.


In this scene, which occurs in chapter one, cold and down-in-her-luck, Kelly Franklin has accepted a stranger's invitation for dinner. Though she is a little taken aback when the gentleman insists on cutting up her meat and feeding her dessert, the excellent food and warm restaurant more than make up for his strange eccentricities. So, she plays along despite her unease. After dinner, he allows her to have a treat, then asks if she would like to move in with him.


Kelly frowned. He seemed harmless enough, but she didn't know him at all and he'd refused to answer most of her questions. He hadn't even told her his name, saying instead that she should call him, Sir.
When she hesitated, he leaned closer. "I want to take care of you, Kelly. You'll have your own room, plenty to eat, good clothes to wear. I will see to your every need and you will want for nothing. I will also pay for you to take classes at some point, so you will have the proper skills needed to find a job when we eventually part."
Interesting. He spoke of parting before they'd even gotten together. Kelly knew there had to be a catch, but she couldn't imagine what it could be. Looking at him, she asked, "So, are you expecting to throw me back on the streets when you're finished with me?"
His frown deepened as he glared at her. "You are never to return to the streets. Is that clear?"
She shrugged. "What am I to do for money, then?"
"Cash won't be an issue, since I will provide for you. But, if you're worried about your future, I will say that I intend to establish a trust fund for you, which you may draw upon when you turn twenty-one. You're eighteen now, so two hundred dollars a week should provide you with a nest egg of around fifty thousand dollars that I will expect you to build upon once you've got a respectable job."
Two hundred dollars this week would have kept her off the streets. So what was the catch? "Will you be sleeping with me?"
"I will see to your every need, Kelly," he repeated slowly, as if she had trouble understanding him. "Though I doubt we will share the same bed for an entire night."
"Will you at least tell me your name, sir?"
"I don't see what difference it should make, unless I adopt you, which I doubt I will, but my name is Graham White."
"Where do you live, Mr. White?"
Kelly received a firm slap on her thigh for that. Rubbing the spot he'd smacked, she scowled at him. "What was that for?"
"What did I say you were to call me?"
She swallowed. He appeared quite serious about the etiquette he wanted her to follow. "Sir."
"That is correct. I do not ever want you to refer to me by my name. Is that clear?"
"Yes, sir."
"Good. I have an apartment located on Fifth Avenue near Central Park."
Kelly still thought he was still being evasive, so she asked, "What sort of restrictions would you impose on me if I agreed to live with you, sir?"
"I'm not sure what it is you wish to know."
"Okay, if I meet someone at school, can I have them over to visit at your place?"
"No, you may not. You will be taking your classes at home, over the Internet. Other than our weekly afternoon out, you should have no need to leave the apartment."
Kelly thought she was beginning to get the picture. "Will I ever be allowed to leave your side unaccompanied, Sir?"
"If you're required to be somewhere without me being present, we will discuss it at that time. Until then, I expect you to remain in my company at all times."
He intended to make her answerable to him alone. Kelly wasn't sure she liked that idea. He had been strict, but not cruel, even so….
"Is your current life so full of possibilities you have difficulty making the choice?"
She snorted. "No."
"That's a most disgusting sound. Don't do it again. It's not ladylike. So, why do you hesitate?"

His face immediately softened, and he smiled. "No, Kelly. You won't be my prisoner. You will be my loved and cherished daughter."


Though a part of Kelly suspects her escort has some kinky notions, the stranger's behavior remains gentlemanly toward her, despite his paternalistic tendencies. And, if he was being truthful with her, she'd certainly be better off with him than living on the streets. So, what choice did she really have?

When hunger and cold induce Kelly Franklin to accept a stranger's offer, she has no idea how drastically her life will change.
