Sexy Me Up @stormiekent #MSS83 #MFRWAuthor #MySexySaturday

MSS_button 250x250 my sexy saturday button

Welcome to my stop on the My Sexy Saturday Bloghop.

The theme this week is Sexy Me Up. The prompt challenges us to, “Think about the Pygmalion types…those who don’t think they are sexy…and suddenly, all those around realize just how desirable they are. Or how about those who have just gotten over a bad breakup and need a little reassurance that they are indeed sexy.”

I searched through a current work-in-progress for my inspiration. My heroines tend to have an “f” them if they don’t like it frame of mind, so I had to dig a bit to find a character with a question about their appeal. In these 7 sentences, our leading lady has just finished asking if the leading man didn’t find her attractive because of their differing ethnicities. He quickly lays her fears to rest.

Enjoy!

His hand rested against her rapid heartbeat. “I can only imagine how exquisite our bodies would look together entwined in passion.”

She made a small noise in her throat. “Well, why then?”

Her brown eyes sparked. It was the little note of fire in her which would make claiming her so sweet. The deep brown of her soft breasts contrasted with the lighter tan of his hand.

Slow Kisses and a Firm Command #MFRWhooks #eroticromance

logo book hooksWelcome to my stop on Book Hooks, the weekly blog meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers. Each week authors share hooks from their WIP’s and published books. Follow the link below to more hooks or click the Book Hooks logo to be taken to the main site.

Please remember my work is for the grown and sexy. (Adults Only)

The following is from my first novel, Enslaved In Desire. We get a sneak into Camryn’s head as Venn gives her a taste of why she can’t seem to resist him.

 

BOOK HOOK

His other hand came up, but only one finger trailed her throat from her hairline to her shoulder. His mouth followed and his cool hair swung forward and trailed over her arm and breast. He did the same thing over and over again to the back of her neck and then transferred her hair to his other hand and worked the same magic on the other side of her neck. He tugged harder on her hair and the pleasure shot straight to her cunt.

He stepped beside her and leaned forward, raining kisses on her chin and neck. Then he turned her loose completely. She whimpered.

“Keep your eyes on your face and body in the mirror,” he said, lacing his voice with command.

Book Description:

Joshua’s Mistake

A.S. Fenichel

Accused of treason and the murder of her Psychic Special Forces team, Tessa is in the custody of the FBI. She’s shocked and terrified when the most powerful Psi Agent in the world shows up to probe her mind and discover her guilt or innocence.

Joshua never expected to find a victim of one of his probes attractive, but he can’t seem to leave her behind when all hell breaks loose. Saving the stunning blonde means being drawn into a psychic war that will definitely end his career—and likely both of their lives.

The rhythm of their psychic auras hums to perfection and neither can fight the bond, but it’s all ripped away by a madman with a grudge. Tessa falls into a coma, and Joshua will have to risk his heart and soul to pull her back from the brink.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

 

Excerpt

Joshua got up from the farm table. “I’ll be back in a little while. Peggy, can you show Tessa where she can rest?”

Peggy smiled warmly. “Of course. You’ll be wanting a shower too. If you give me those clothes, I’ll get them in the washing machine and have them clean when you wake up.”

“You’re very kind, Mrs. Flack.”

She waved a bony hand in dismissal. “You just call me Peggy. Everyone does.”

Tessa had said all the right things to Peggy. She had been polite and controlled her emotions. Inside, she was just short of full on panic. He was leaving her. Who could blame him? Tessa didn’t want to alarm the Flacks so she remained silent, yet practically screamed in her mind, “Where the hell are you going? Are you leaving me here?”

Part of her wanted him to hear and another part of her understood why he would want to get as far away from her as possible. Just because she could feel his emotions didn’t mean he would sense hers. He was undoubtedly very practiced at closing off his mind. If he was really a level ten psychic, he would have to just to stay sane.

He’d likely get killed if he stayed with her. At least he’d gotten her to a place where she could try to catch a few hours of sleep and then she’d be on the run. Probably for the rest of her life, however long that might be.

From the way his head spun around, she might as well have spoken out loud. His eyes widened and then he stalked toward her. He was visceral and terrifying. His body language said he wanted her and he might take her right there in the kitchen.

Tessa held her ground in the center of the old linoleum floor. She didn’t know if she wanted to move closer or run away. Everything about Joshua made her at once, curious, aroused and afraid.

Bill cleared his throat and walked out the door with his shotgun in his hand.

Peggy said, “Well, um…I’ll just wait for you in the next room, Tessa dear.”

Joshua didn’t stop until he was standing with only a sliver of light between them. She had to crane her neck to look up at him. His mouth came within a centimeter of hers, but he never touched her.

“I’m not leaving you.”

Her heart pounded in her chest and her stomach clenched painfully. “I can take care of myself.”

One side of his mouth lifted. His right hand came up and calloused fingers slid across her cheekbone. He was powerful. He could kill her. If his psi rating was true, he could likely kill her without touching her, but he could just as easily snap her neck. She could defend herself, but what would be the point. This was Joshua Lakeland. Eventually he would win.

Those same fingers continued until they were threaded through her hair and he forced her to look him in the eye. “I know you can, Tessa. I’m not leaving because I don’t want to leave you. I can’t explain why, but we’re in this together. You’re going to have to learn to trust me.”

She had to force air into her lungs. “I’ve already taken several leaps of faith. You just said you were leaving. If you want to go, then go.”

He shook his head, but didn’t release her. “I’m going to get rid of the car. I don’t want to get picked up by the local police because we made a rookie mistake and kept a stolen car too long.”

“Oh.” She could feel her cheeks flushing.

His left hand came up and cupped her other cheek. He ran a thumb along her bottom lip. She wanted to be impervious to his attention, but her body trembled at his touch.

His mouth drew closer. His breath mingled with hers as her lips separated partially in shock at what was about to happen and partially in need of his kiss. Those deep blue eyes locked with hers and she couldn’t blink or look away. He scanned her face to her lips, closed his eyes and stepped away.

Tessa’s instinct told her she should throw her arms around his neck and take the kiss he’d nearly given. Her cautious nature kept her feet planted in the spot on the linoleum.

Only the sound of heavy breathing filled the kitchen for several ticks of the clock.

“I’ll be back in a little while. You’d better get some rest.” Joshua walked out the kitchen door into the yard.

BOOK HOOK

Those shoes were really high, but she moved like a predator in them, loose hipped and purposeful. He was stuck in place. Every cell in his body wanted to take her to the floor and rip away the black outfit and take every hole she had.

Camryn stopped after opening the door. With her hand on the sill, she looked back over her shoulder and smiled with only one side of her mouth. It hit him right in the groin. He also realized she knew exactly what she had done to him and exactly what she was going to do to every man she passed. Then she disappeared out into the hallway.

Shifters, Dragons & Witches, Oh My #WritingProcess Blog Tour #amwriting

Hey, I was tagged by my friend, A. S. Fenichel to participate in this Writing Process Blog Hop. Each author answers questions about their work in progress and how they write. I thought this would be a great idea as I get a lot of questions about what I’m working on. I tagged Harlie Williams and Helena Harker. Check out their blogs for their posts on April 7, 2014. Without further ado, on to the questions.

What am I working on?

Right now I’m slowly working on four projects. I‘m writing a paranormal erotic romance featuring a shifter detective protecting a curvy witch even though, in their town, supernaturals don’t mix with each other. Ever.

I have another futuristic erotic romance in the works featuring a powerful dragon shifter. This one has been reworked three times with the same two main characters. I know they want to be together forever. I hope I got it right this time.

My goal every year is to enter a short story contest. I never make it as my work always starts to run long. This year I’m determined and the story is a third of the way finished and all planned.

Finally, for you fans of Enslaved in Desire and Battling Rapture, Guntar just told me he’s ready for his story. This one might take a while. I’ve met his lady love and she is extremely complicated. The story won’t unfold into an erotic romance so I’m still in the concept stage.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I literally have no idea. Right now, I’m writing sci-fi erotic romance, paranormal erotic romance and urban fantasy (under another name).  My characters are usually interracial (or interspecies *wink *wink). My leading ladies are for the most part, African-American. I hope that what I write is unique to me.

Why do I write what I do?

I read everything as a child and teen. At a certain age, I noticed my tastes running toward fantasy, and science fiction. I read and watched a ton of science fiction. In my late teens I discovered romance novels and a love affair was born. It just made sense to combine them all.

How does my writing process work?

I started out as someone who marinated over an idea, made a few notes, then began to write. This was joyful and creative, but I felt I could spend less time on revisions if I knew everything up front. Edits and revisions are my arch enemies and I hate them beyond reason. My teenager can tell you how I monologue against them before she’d tell me, “You can do it, Mom.”

So I researched how to become a plotter. Why did I do that? I had my shifter story blocked out to within an inch of its life. And I couldn’t write it. My mind felt, well, done with it. It was now boring because I knew everything. I suffered a gripping case of writer’s block for months.

Then I began to write by a small word count, forcing myself to push out a certain number of words each day. I even began to write an urban fantasy for my alter ego. I flipped back and forth between three stories. It got easier when I automatically changed a plot point in the shifter story. Suddenly I wasn’t tied to my outlines and timelines. I could use it as a guide. I learned a major lesson with that one.

I do keep information from intersecting stories in a notebook so that I can flip back to them when I am unsure of something. When I create a new animal I may sketch it out.

And that is my crazy process.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to comment or ask questions in the comments section. Here is a little more about the fabulous authors I’ve tagged. Check out their posts to find out what they are working on and how they write.

Harlie Williams is a reader of everything and a writer of romance. The story must have a HEA or she will put it down. A HFN can apply but it must make sense. She grew up in Dallas, TX and now lives in East Texas with her hero and their son.

Helena Harker is a teacher by day, writer by night, a daydreamer who loves to escape to other worlds. Her fiction is populated by strong men, passionate women and lots of paranormal creatures. In her free time she enjoys photography and curling up with a good book.

 

Rapturously Sexy #MySexySaturday #romance #MSSWeek41

I am delighted to participate in the My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop this week. Week 41 is all about that moment when the characters hint at their happily ever after.

The rules are that I post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences, or 7 words. This Saturday, I decided on 7 sentences from my second book with Ellora’s Cave Publishing, Battling Rapture. In these seven, Niki realizes it might be a delicious thing to be vulnerable with the, oh so sexy Captain Rhine.

batlingrapture_msr

** The anticipation sent delicate little shivers down her spine. Then his lips touched hers. Softly at first, they glided across her lips before parting to deepen the delicious contact. His tongue danced with hers and she tried to immerse herself in the exquisite feeling. Whatever this was she felt when with him was addictive. She wanted to absorb what he made her feel into her pores. With a simple kiss he could turn her to mush and convince her she didn’t care if she were vulnerable. **

You can only imagine what comes next. Have you ever given yourself over to a feeling so strong you faced your biggest phobia to have it?

I hoped you enjoyed my 7. There are many more authors waiting to show you peeks into their WIP’s and books. Click the highlighted link that follows to head to the hop.

#MySexySaturday, #Saturday7 #MSSWeek20

Welcome! I chose seven sentences this week from my futuristic erotic romance, Cosmic Bliss. These seven sentences represent Acia and Shunyuan’s first kiss. Deep in space and caught in an impossible situation, a bond develops at the exact moment they kiss. This bit is told from Shunyuan’s point of view. Poor thing, we get the hint he knows he’s already in trouble. Enjoy!

The moment their mouths touched he knew this would be a different experience than any he’d had before. He almost stepped away from her. He opened his eyes briefly to remind himself that the woman he held was not human. He gazed at her scarlet hair and starlight skin and cautioned himself not to get lost in the sweet temptation of her mouth. His hands delved into the softness of her hair. The warm moistness of her mouth contrasted with the coolness of her rosy lips. He wanted every bit of her he could have.

EXCERPT

The following excerpt is for those readers who are 18 and over only.

Copyright © Stormie Kent, 2013

All Rights Reserved, Ellora’s Cave Publishing, Inc.

This warrior-man fascinated Acia. She felt the fervor, which had subsided some during the battle, flare to life. Heat and tension settled between her legs and her nipples pulled taut. Wetness soaked her panties.

“Keep the tall one, Acia. You will need him,” Cheris said.

“We don’t traffic in humanoids, Cheris.” She blew out slowly, trying to dispel the urge to go to him and rub her body against his.

“Ask him.” Cheris nodded.

The male spoke in a language she could not understand. She needed to calibrate her Language Interpreter. The LI would need to adjust to this new language.

“You want me to ask a perfect stranger, an alien slave, to keep me sexually satisfied while I go through my first fervor? He could be a murderer.”

“What other choice do you have? Go all the way to Dovia? You can’t stop staring. You want him. The fervor wants him. Tell him we will transport them to a friendly planet if he does this for you.”

The fervor flared higher, streaking through her entire body. Tendrils of heat branched out from her core. She’d waited too long to find a man to help her through her time.

Acia took a deep breath to steady herself. “Unchain them, but guard your weapons.”

Acia instructed her crew to adjust their LIs. Acia adjusted her LI as well. There was mumbling among the alien men and women as they were released. Finally she could make out words from their foreign tongue.

“You, warrior, I would speak with you.” She cursed her voice, which she knew sounded as sweet as flowers in a light breeze.

“You’ve freed us.” He stepped closer. “Or is this a trick?”

“There is no trick. But maybe I haven’t done you any favors. You are free to take this vessel and leave,” Acia replied. A new sheen of perspiration released from her pores as she tried to contain the fervor. The presence of a humanoid male made it almost impossible. “My crew and I will be appropriating the cargo.”

He grimaced. “We wouldn’t know how to fly this ship. We would be easily targeted sitting here. Can you take us to a safe place or back to Earth?”

Acia held herself rigid even though her body was demanding she display for this man signs she was ready to mate. If she bent over to let him mount her she would expire on the spot. “You aren’t even in the same galaxy as your Earth anymore, warrior. Passage on our vessel is limited and—”

“There is a way you could pay the way for your people. Of course they would still have to work to earn their keep,” Cheris said.

“No, Cheris.” It was difficult to talk through clenched teeth.

“How would I do that?” he asked. He frowned at Acia’s first officer.

Acia raised her hand to halt Cheris’s next words. “It is not something I would ask of—”

“As the first officer to your captain, you hold rank, but as the woman who raised you, I demand my right to speak.”

Acia clamped her lips together. The other woman had raised her and protected her during their enslavement. Cheris was the person who deserved parenting rights over Acia. She deserved the privilege of counseling her.

Cheris turned to the man. “What is your name, warrior?”

He blinked. Acia could imagine it had been awhile since anyone had asked him his name.

“I am Shunyuan Taylor.”

“Well, Shunyuan Taylor. We are Dovian. Our females go through a stage when they become women called the fervor. Captain Acia is entering her first fervor and needs a man to rut with her for the next seven risings,” Cheris said. Her voice was calm.

Shunyuan Taylor looked from Cheris to her. His gaze started at the top of Acia’s lcin-red hair and passed over the pearlescent whiteness of her skin. She knew he was taking in their differences. The Dovians had pale-white skin that shimmered underneath with a faint silver-and-gold sparkle tones. She glanced at the women huddled with her crew. She realized how different she must look to him from the cream, peach and brown of the Earth women with him.

She was much shorter than Shunyuan Taylor. Her figure was willowy. The females with him were more rounded than she would ever hope to be.

“You are not a woman full grown?” he asked.

Acia’s jaw tightened. “I am an adult Dovian with twenty-four summers. I only become a full woman after my first fervor.”

“If I…have sex with you will be taken to a safe place where we can make our way back to our planet?” he asked.

How could he speak with his jaw clenched so tightly? His mouth turned down at the corners. His entire body was rigid as if she were offering him the highest offense. Maybe she was. Her eyes skittered away from his. Pride wouldn’t allow her to answer him.

“Yes. You will be exhausted when she is done with you. I will even give you some credits for necessities,” Cheris said.

“Cheris!”

“Parent rights, Acia, parent rights.” The other woman still watched Shunyuan Taylor.

He stared at Acia for a long time. His eyes were intense and not in a pleasant way. “I will do as you ask.”

“Then we have a deal, Earth man. Do understand, if you hurt her, I will kill you slowly.”

Acia bowed her head.

“I understand,” he said.

“Is one of these Earth women your female, Shunyuan Taylor?” Acia asked.

“No.” He paused for a moment. The line of his mouth eased slightly. “You must call me Shunyuan.”

“Shunyuan,” Acia repeated.

“It’s settled. I will take care of our cargo and manage our new guests. Acia, take Shunyuan Taylor to your quarters. You are showing signs of full fervor and should be very uncomfortable by now. Get food and drink for him. There is no need for dehydration.” Cheris turned away to direct the bots as they came into the cargo area to secure boxes.

Acia sighed as she stared at the back of the older woman’s black hair. Acia felt her body loosen and break free from the restraints she placed on it. Her thighs had a mind of their own and slid against each other as she tightened the muscles in her woman’s core. More moisture pooled there as she turned to look at her first sexual partner.

“This way.” She noticed huskiness in her voice that hadn’t been there before. Her walk held more side-to-side sway than normal.

She didn’t know what to expect from him. Would he be as gentle as a Dovian man would? The hard lines of his face and body did not suggest he would be. All she knew was she had to have him. He would be the only being standing between her and mental and physical torture.

Niki is captured by hostile aliens after Earth is invaded. Once a soldier, she is now a slave. She is sold to the highest bidder, and then lost in a game of cards to a tall Ordanian spaceship captain, who claims to have been sent to rescue her. They work together to survive the dangers of the United Universe, while Niki battles her desire for the only man to ever enflame her mind, body and soul.

Captain Rhine’s mission is to reunite the Earth woman with her family. Outmaneuvering beast shifters and a crazed stalker are the very least he is willing to do to keep her by his side.

In the end, Rhine understands, the biggest battle is for her heart.

Alpha, Beta, Gamma Male? #eroticromance #hero #alphamale

Alpha, Beta, Gamma Male?

We often call our heroes alpha males. Good looking, tough, aggressive, intelligent, charismatic and natural leaders, our heroes are the envy of other men and desired by women. Those same characteristics can make them a bit rigid and self-centered. How do we begin to redeem them when initially they may have some less than stellar characteristics?

I find I love a hero more if, when he meets the heroine, he can display some of the characteristics I think of as belonging to a beta. The beta doesn’t always need to lead. He listens to others and he is naturally expressive with affection. I don’t want this all the time though. I have a natural aversion to it as a matter of fact. I feel it makes the character more special if he maintains his edge while showing these characteristics with the heroine and fragile people in his care.

I read an article recently which talked about a gamma male. Apparently, the gamma male is a combination of alpha and beta. He is strong, charismatic, yet sensitive to others. Maybe. I read another report that likened a gamma male to an omega male. I don’t think these labels are set in stone, though I like the idea of an alpha – beta combo.

What do you think? Are heroes better with a softer side?

I’m talking more about alpha and beta heroes at Sweet N Sexy Divas today. Stop by and check it out. In the meantime, have a peek at a few super sexy heroes below.

Captain Acia must use a man’s body for sex during the seven days of her fervor or suffer debilitating pain.  She makes a deal with Shunyuan, never imagining he’s her mate. She finds herself bound to a captive who wants to return to his world—without her.

Their sensual bond and sizzling passion tie them together even as Shunyuan’s duty to Earth’s rebellion threatens to tear them apart.

This warrior-man fascinated Acia. She felt the fervor, which had subsided some during the battle, flare to life. Heat and tension settled between her legs and her nipples pulled taut. Wetness soaked her panties.

“Keep the tall one, Acia. You will need him,” Cheris said.

“We don’t traffic in humanoids, Cheris.” She blew out slowly, trying to dispel the urge to go to him and rub her body against his.

“Ask him.” Cheris nodded.

The male spoke in a language she could not understand. She needed to calibrate her Language Interpreter. The LI would need to adjust to this new language.

“You want me to ask a perfect stranger, an alien slave, to keep me sexually satisfied while I go through my first fervor? He could be a murderer.”

“What other choice do you have? Go all the way to Dovia? You can’t stop staring. You want him. The fervor wants him. Tell him we will transport them to a friendly planet if he does this for you.”

The fervor flared higher, streaking through her entire body. Tendrils of heat branched out from her core. She’d waited too long to find a man to help her through her time.

Acia took a deep breath to steady herself. “Unchain them, but guard your weapons.”

Acia instructed her crew to adjust their LIs. Acia adjusted her LI as well. There was mumbling among the alien men and women as they were released. Finally she could make out words from their foreign tongue.

“You, warrior, I would speak with you.” She cursed her voice, which she knew sounded as sweet as flowers in a light breeze.

“You’ve freed us.” He stepped closer. “Or is this a trick?”

“There is no trick. But maybe I haven’t done you any favors. You are free to take this vessel and leave,” Acia replied. A new sheen of perspiration released from her pores as she tried to contain the fervor. The presence of a humanoid male made it almost impossible. “My crew and I will be appropriating the cargo.”

He grimaced. “We wouldn’t know how to fly this ship. We would be easily targeted sitting here. Can you take us to a safe place or back to Earth?”

Acia held herself rigid even though her body was demanding she display for this man signs she was ready to mate. If she bent over to let him mount her she would expire on the spot. “You aren’t even in the same galaxy as your Earth anymore, warrior. Passage on our vessel is limited and—”

“There is a way you could pay the way for your people. Of course they would still have to work to earn their keep,” Cheris said.

“No, Cheris.” It was difficult to talk through clenched teeth.

“How would I do that?” he asked. He frowned at Acia’s first officer.

Acia raised her hand to halt Cheris’s next words. “It is not something I would ask of—”

“As the first officer to your captain, you hold rank, but as the woman who raised you, I demand my right to speak.”

Acia clamped her lips together. The other woman had raised her and protected her during their enslavement. Cheris was the person who deserved parenting rights over Acia. She deserved the privilege of counseling her.

Cheris turned to the man. “What is your name, warrior?”

He blinked. Acia could imagine it had been awhile since anyone had asked him his name.

“I am Shunyuan Taylor.”

“Well, Shunyuan Taylor. We are Dovian. Our females go through a stage when they become women called the fervor. Captain Acia is entering her first fervor and needs a man to rut with her for the next seven risings,” Cheris said. Her voice was calm.

Shunyuan Taylor looked from Cheris to her. His gaze started at the top of Acia’s lcin-red hair and passed over the pearlescent whiteness of her skin. She knew he was taking in their differences. The Dovians had pale-white skin that shimmered underneath with a faint silver-and-gold sparkle tones. She glanced at the women huddled with her crew. She realized how different she must look to him from the cream, peach and brown of the Earth women with him.

She was much shorter than Shunyuan Taylor. Her figure was willowy. The females with him were more rounded than she would ever hope to be.

“You are not a woman full grown?” he asked.

Acia’s jaw tightened. “I am an adult Dovian with twenty-four summers. I only become a full woman after my first fervor.”

“If I…have sex with you will be taken to a safe place where we can make our way back to our planet?” he asked.

How could he speak with his jaw clenched so tightly? His mouth turned down at the corners. His entire body was rigid as if she were offering him the highest offense. Maybe she was. Her eyes skittered away from his. Pride wouldn’t allow her to answer him.

“Yes. You will be exhausted when she is done with you. I will even give you some credits for necessities,” Cheris said.

“Cheris!”

“Parent rights, Acia, parent rights.” The other woman still watched Shunyuan Taylor.

He stared at Acia for a long time. His eyes were intense and not in a pleasant way. “I will do as you ask.”

“Then we have a deal, Earth man. Do understand, if you hurt her, I will kill you slowly.”

Acia bowed her head.

“I understand,” he said.

“Is one of these Earth women your female, Shunyuan Taylor?” Acia asked.

“No.” He paused for a moment. The line of his mouth eased slightly. “You must call me Shunyuan.”

“Shunyuan,” Acia repeated.

“It’s settled. I will take care of our cargo and manage our new guests. Acia, take Shunyuan Taylor to your quarters. You are showing signs of full fervor and should be very uncomfortable by now. Get food and drink for him. There is no need for dehydration.” Cheris turned away to direct the bots as they came into the cargo area to secure boxes.

Acia sighed as she stared at the back of the older woman’s black hair. Acia felt her body loosen and break free from the restraints she placed on it. Her thighs had a mind of their own and slid against each other as she tightened the muscles in her woman’s core. More moisture pooled there as she turned to look at her first sexual partner.

“This way.” She noticed huskiness in her voice that hadn’t been there before. Her walk held more side-to-side sway than normal.

She didn’t know what to expect from him. Would he be as gentle as a Dovian man would? The hard lines of his face and body did not suggest he would be. All she knew was she had to have him. He would be the only being standing between her and mental and physical torture.

He crowded her back and she watched in the mirror. He was dressed for meetings in a black dress coat, crisp white shirt and fitted black pants. The contrast of her nude body pressed against his fully clothed form made her press back against him to feel the pleasure of the smooth material against her hot skin.

“I didn’t tell you to move, sweet.” He stepped back.

She groaned. Her eyes clashed with his in the mirror.

“What’s with the restraint?” she asked.

“I know you like it when I hold you down, but I wanted to use my hands today. And you did say it would take chains to keep you in one place,” he replied.

She remained as still as possible and he watched her for a while before moving behind her once more. She wanted to think she would resist him, but she couldn’t. When he got like this, he wasn’t going to be put off and she liked how he handled her too much. She liked that he took all the passion and barbarian in himself and locked it down, only for it to emerge again once he’d made her mindless. She knew it was there, just sitting under the surface of his skin. She could see it in the way his smile didn’t match the fire in his eyes.

He gathered her hair in one hand and wrapped it once around his hand. He pulled her head gently to the side. She curled her toes into the carpet so she wouldn’t move.

His other hand came up, but only one finger trailed her throat from her hairline to her shoulder. His mouth followed and his cool hair swung forward and trailed over her arm and breast. He did the same thing over and over again to the back of her neck and then transferred her hair to his other hand and worked the same magic on the other side of her neck. He tugged harder on her hair and the pleasure shot straight to her cunt.

He stepped beside her and leaned forward, raining kisses on her chin and neck. Then he turned her loose completely. She whimpered.

“Keep your eyes on your face and body in the mirror,” he said, lacing his voice with command.

She stared into his eyes in the mirror. Then she lowered her gaze to her own face. Her eyes were slumberous. Her bottom lip was swollen where she’d bitten it in concentration and she was flushed.

“Beautiful,” he said.

He leaned over her. His stomach muscles bunched and rolled above her. She opened her mouth, barely stopping her tongue from peeking out and tasting him. She looked up instead. He wrapped the rope around her wrists, apparently finding it easy to manipulate the thick cord. He fastened the other end around the top horizontal solid bar of the headboard.

He ran his hands softly over her inner arms. She shivered. She tensed as he grabbed her face a little more roughly. She looked into his eyes. Anticipation wound tightly within her. What would he do next?

“You have two dresses in my bag, correct?” he asked close to her mouth.

She hesitated. He squeezed her face a little tighter.

“Yes.” She stared him in the eye.

“Good.” He let her go. He moved down so that he sat between her legs, which had opened despite her desire not to appear too eager. His cock rested against the juncture of her legs. She could feel its mass through the layers of her skirt and leggings.

He sat back, grabbed her bodice and ripped it straight down the middle. She gasped. Shock held her still for a moment. Then her pussy gushed. This was just wrong. The man had tied her to a bed and literally ripped her top off and she was creaming her panties. Her head fell back and she tugged on the ties around her wrists. She was secured tightly.

Her attention snapped back to Rhine as she felt two large hands cup her breasts. They teased, squeezed and rolled her tits and she enjoyed every minute of it.

“Found some new toys.” She panted and suppressed a groan.

“Mine,” he said. He stared at her breasts hungrily. He slid down her body.

“I don’t know about—” She gasped as he sucked her right nipple into his mouth. Her eyes rolled up into her head for a moment.

“Okay, you can borrow them for a while.” If he kept up the delicious suction, she’d be begging him to try it a little lower in no time.
