A Dom Dangerous to her Peace of Mind on WIP It Up Wednesday

It’s been a busy few months for me:
Mastering Mariah in April
The Barbarian’s Captive in May
Hero To Obey in June
French Kiss in June
And, coming soon on July 27th, my addition to the Red Petticoat Saloon, Claiming Coral.  

I think I'll have to check in somewhere in August to recover!  And have carpal tunnel surgery, just kidding, thank goodness.  

During that time and all the frenzied pimping and promoting, I missed a stop on the WIP It Up Wednesday Blog Hop for Arturo and Mari, in French Kiss.  So, I thought I’d circle back around and share today, before I harken back to the old west with my Red Petticoat J

French Kiss, is the latest in my Decadence Nights series.  It’s packed with all the action, intrigue, suspense, hot doms, sassy subs and BDSM club action you’d expect from my bestselling original series, Club Decadence.


In this scene, Mari agrees to go upstairs to a theme room for the first time, having only played in the main club room since joining almost a year ago.  Usually she chooses easy doms who she can trust not to test her limits, which are many.  She quickly finds Master Arturo is none of those things and is in fact dangerous, to her peace of mind and especially her carefully guarded heart.

My naughty excerpt:

 He lowered his mouth, but at the last moment she turned her face away and murmured, “Please, sir, I prefer not to kiss on the mouth; it’s too intimate.”

Shocked, he raised his head—what the fuck? As he pulled her face around, he searched her troubled blue eyes and a range of emotions flickered through him, first anger, then annoyance, taking serious offense, but when he looked deeper and saw the shadow in her eyes, he remembered her loss and from what Master Dex had said, her ongoing distress.

“It’s to be cold and impersonal then, that’s how you want it?”

“Not cold, sir.”

With a faint smile, he searched her face for a moment before inclining his head and concluding, “So at odds with yourself, aren’t you?” He turned her to face the cross, and ordered, “Strip off everything, Mari, I am anxious to get started.”

The Blurb:

At thirty-eight, Marilee Hoffman finds herself a widow with an empty nest and an empty heart. She is lost, floating aimlessly through life as her family and friends, even the boutique that bears her name, move on without her. After losing her husband and master of eighteen years, Mari has vowed never to open her heart to the pain of that kind of loss again. But she is still young and has needs that only a dominant can fulfill. She searches for what she craves at a distant BDSM club, but as her limits are tested, she refuses to submit fully and leaves unsatisfied time and again, suppressing the submissive and the inner masochist that she truly is.

MI6 Agent, Arturo Durand, is assigned to stop the leak of weapons technology that is being turned on his fellow agents with lethal force. His mission leads him to south Texas, where he calls upon Tony Rossi, an old friend and colleague, and his security team for assistance. The sadist in him is pleasantly surprised to receive a guest membership at Club Decadence, the BDSM club that Tony and his partners run. Arturo finds it is the perfect place to unwind and fulfill his needs while the investigation drags on.

One night, when Mari's easy, non-threatening dom is called away, she is paired with Master Arturo for a scene. Having seen him wield his whip masterfully, she knows on sight, he is dangerous to her vow to keep her heart uninvolved. There is an instant spark and as the weeks go on, Arturo breaks through the barriers Mari has erected around her wounded heart. When new leads in the investigation implicate a terrorist group and Mari's dead husband, Arturo is also shocked to find that his new submissive has become his prime suspect. Can he fulfill his commitment to the crown while protecting Mari and proving her innocence? And when his identity is revealed and she is hurt, thinking he has played her from the beginning, can he convince her that she was more than just a mission and somehow keep her as his own?
