Today, on #ScintillatingSunday, I’m featuring an excerpt from my brand new release, What About Love, the final book in my Club Decadence series.
Yes, it’s bittersweet, but it has been almost three years in coming and seven books in total, not counting two spin off series that are still underway.
So away we go…
What About Love
Club Decadence Book 6
The set up:
Angie takes her job seriously, but she might just have bitten off more than she can chew with this assignment as she prepares to go undercover as a submissive as a BDSM club. Her partner and Dom trainer is going to show her how to make it look real and to do so she must get real with a little on the job training. Yikes! What’s a vanilla agent to do?
As Angie yanked down the migrating hem yet again, she imagined Dan had taken considerable glee in picking out the electric blue PVC skirt. He’d chosen a petite size, which on her above average frame rode below her navel and barely covered the curves of her ass. The black and blue trimmed crop top wasn’t much better, adhering to her like a second skin. She supposed she should be grateful that she was covered at all, considering she’d seen subs in the lounge and bar areas wearing substantially less, though she couldn’t muster much gratitude at the moment.
The hem of the skimpy crop top sat several inches below her breasts and would have been deemed conservative club wear with its pointed collar and little cap sleeves, if not for the huge, circular cutout in front. It showed the entire inner curves of her nearly-D breasts and was keeping her other hand busy trying to corral the twins that jiggled obscenely as she hurried along. Angie was convinced if she took the shallowest of breaths, she’d treat everyone to a nip slip. She didn’t want to think about the results if she had to raise her hands higher than her waist. Talk about wardrobe malfunction.
“Come along, sub,” Dan called from where he waited by the door, a highly entertained look on his handsome face.
Angie bit her tongue to keep “kiss my ass” or other choice retorts from flying out of her mouth.
Although she wasn’t submissive, Dan was definitely dominant and she wouldn’t put him past getting himself a little vindication for such a disrespectful remark once he had her “in training” inside. Instead, she grumbled, “I’m going as fast as I can, sir,” the last word said a hint short of a sneer. “I’d like to see you try walking in these damnable De Sade inspired stilts.”
The stilts she referred to were actually the bright blue five-inch platform heels he’d insisted she strap on her feet.
“Now, now, remember what I taught you. Subs at Club Decadence don’t scowl at their Doms, nor do they grumble every breath or curse. Unless they’re angling for a spanking that is.”
“You are pure evil.”
“I’m a sadist, Angie. That comes with the territory.”
On the outside looking in for years, Angela Hixson thinks she knows what the BDSM club scene and lifestyle are all about from watching her friends with their dominant husbands and attending “Little Black Dress” Nights in the lounge at Club Decadence. But when her boss tags her to go undercover as bait for a serial killer at a BDSM club in LA, she learns she has no idea what being submissive really means.
Partnered with Antonio “Lil T” Minelli, sexy as hell ex-Green Beret turned security and covert ops specialist for Rossi Security, and the last available Decadence Master, Angie must guard her heart or risk losing it to the one man who has the power to make her kneel in surrender. He is also a man who has made no secret that marriage, family and love aren’t for him. Instead, having sworn off relationships beyond the walls of his club, he meets his needs with an available, willing submissive, making it clear up front not to expect more than an unforgettable night.
Thrown together again and again, at work, at play, and in near constant emotionally charged situations, Angie and Lil
T fight their attraction, but succumb to their undeniable desire. The chemistry between them is explosive, as is the sex. As Angie falls under the spell of his expertly wielded flogger, her fears come to fruition when she realizes she’s lost her heart and given her love to a man who swears he doesn’t have it in him to give in return. In time, she sees past the fun loving, player exterior to the tortured man beneath. Can she convince him to take a chance, to entrust his damaged heart into her loving hands and try again? Or will he reinforce the shields he’s built over the past decade and push her away, losing her forever?
What About Love is the final installment in the Club Decadence series. Catch up with old friends in this fast paced, action packed story, full of as much BDSM adventure and romance as the others in Maddie Taylor’s popular series.
