Welcome to my debut post on Scintillating Sunday. I'm excited to be a part of an erotic romance blog hop. I'm introducing Decadence Nights, which is a spin off series to my popular Club Decadence series featuring a BDSM club located in San Antonio, Texas. The original series is coming to an end, but there are so many characters that didn't get their stories told. Hooked starts us off.
Hooked (Decadence Nights, Book 1)
Decadence Nights is a new spin-off to my bestselling Club Decadence series. As it draws to a close with the upcoming release of What About Love, Book 6, I just couldn’t let go of all my sexy Doms and their feisty, make-life-interesting kind of subs. So I decided not to call it quits, just yet. Whether you’re a new "club-curious" visitor thinking to make Hooked your first venture into the best damn BDSM club in the southwest, or an old friend of the series, either way, I’m sure you'll find what you're looking for with this first of many Decadence Nights stories.
In other words, I’m confident you'll be Hooked.
Legal secretary Olivia Wright has secretly loved Attorney Joseph Hooks for three long years. Neither knows the other is into the lifestyle. Imagine their surprise when they run into each other at Club Decadence. Shocked and scared of what being with Joseph will do to their work relationship, Livvy tries to leave, but a storm rages outside. Joseph steps in and prevents her from a reckless escape on treacherous roads. That’s when the lightning really lights up the night.
Leaning forward, his fists settled into the soft mattress bracketing her hips, which brought his face very near hers. With him in her space, she had nowhere to go but flat on her back in the bed. Being vulnerable beneath him clearly not part of her plan, she scooted up in the bed until she could go no further. Her eyes darted about the room, once again looking for an escape, but his body had cut off all exit routes. She was caged and she knew it. With few options left except to face the music, she lifted her face, eyes boldly meeting his. Brave girl.
“It’s late, a flash flood warning is out and you’ve been drinking. That’s a dangerous combination, which you won’t be risking, not on my watch. We’ll be spending the night.”
She bristled. “Exactly when did it become your watch, sir?”
“The minute you walked into Club Decadence with your hair loose and gleaming like satin, wearing a dress meant to entice, in search of a Dom tonight. I am that Dom, Olivia. No other.”
He leaned forward, without touching her, forcing her back until she reclined fully on the pillows. Her hands came up to his chest reflexively. As he hovered over her, his upper body containing hers, his lips lowered as if drawn to her by an invisible force, a magnetism that he could no longer deny.
She whispered, “Don’t I get a say?”
“Certainly, you get to say yes.”
He took her mouth, her taste exploding on his tongue as it swept inside. She was as sweet and savory as he’d always guessed she’d be. Unable to resist her allure, his hand found the thickness of her hair as silky soft as he’d imagined, his other hand sliding beneath her back and holding her against him. He deepened the kiss, greedily plundering her mouth as the pirates of old did their treasure, continuing in that mode until she was whimpering softly in her throat. Joseph lifted his head a mere fraction so that his lips brushed against hers as he spoke. “That was a sample, Olivia. Do you want more?”
Thirty-eight-year-old legal secretary Olivia Wright's clock is ticking and she's afraid she's running out of time to find Master Right. Several times she thought she'd found the Dom of her dreams, but instead of the prince she sought, he'd turned out to be a slimy toad. The last one had dumped her unexpectedly and nearly broken her. Now, after a long dry spell, she's ready to try again. She'd really like it to be with the man who'd caught her eye three years ago, but that man is her boss and despite her best efforts, and tightest skirts, he hasn't spared her an extra glance. Resigning herself to unrequited love, she attempts to move on, procuring an invitation to an exclusive BDSM club, hoping Club Decadence will be the answer.
Joseph Hooks isn't your typical Dom. He's NBA tall, with no police or military background to speak of, wears tweed suits, of all things, and on an occasion the dreaded bow tie. But behind his somewhat nerdy appearance is a handsome, green eyed, strict but sensual dominant who's also hell on wheels in a court of law. He's wealthy, powerful, successful, and enjoys popularity among the subs at his private club, at least those who don't flee from the swishing sound of polished rattan, but he's exhausted his search for his perfect submissive and concerned about coming up short. After a frustrating day of watching his gorgeous secretary's delectable bottom in an incredibly tight skirt, he heads to San Antonio to blow off steam and maybe make a connection.
He thinks she's terminally vanilla and straight- laced. She thinks he's not into her, or with the way he ignores her curves and tight skirts, possibly gay. Hopelessly oblivious to what has been staring them in the face for three long years, Joseph and Olivia continue their aimless search for love. Then, one night, as a storm brews outside another rages inside as their paths converge. Will Olivia finally get the Master Prince she deserves, or will her past prevent her from realizing her dream? Will her presence at the club be the sign that Joseph needs to wake up and at long last claim the woman he's yearned for all along?
