Spotlight: Masquerade by Victoria Vale with Giveaway


Masquerade by Victoria Vale
Genre: Erotic, Historical Romance, Regency

Margaret Seymour is bored by the stifling constraints of society dictating her behavior as a debutante in search of a husband. Her prospects are promising by the standards of London society, yet, not one of them causes her heart to flutter, or her head to fill with scintillating, forbidden fantasies. Those feelings are reserved for Camden Rycroft, Duke of Avonleah—a man who isn’t even aware of her existence.

While attending a scandalous Vauxhall Gardens masquerade, Margaret finds herself in the duke’s arms. His promise of a night of pleasure is tempting, but is it worth it when Avonleah is a known rake notorious for his short attention span and avoidance of marriage?

Camden Rycroft is intrigued by the masked vixen he encounters in the Gardens. After one night with her leaves him hungry for more, his desire for her turns into a fiery obsession. Despite the scandal that could ensue from their affair, he finds himself unable to extract himself from a situation destined to end in pain. When faced with losing Margaret to a potential husband, will he rise to the occasion, or risk living without her?






“You must know how many hearts you’ve stolen just by walking into a room. Many a night, I have watched you take a lady into your arms to waltz with her and wished I could be her. To be so close to you, moving together … to know your scent and your touch …” She paused, realizing she’d said far too much.

Camden circled behind her, placing his hands upon her shoulders. His lips brushed the back of her neck and she shivered.

“I cannot deny knowing you have watched me from afar all this time does not bring me pleasure, Maggie,” he murmured, his lips tracing a path toward her ear. “When you watched me with those women, did you wonder if there was more to our association than a simple waltz would suggest?”

She nodded in response, unable to speak when he nibbled on her neck, teasing the most deliciously sensitive spot just beneath her ear.

“You wondered if any of them would accompany me home, didn’t you? You thought about what I did to them.”

She groaned as he took the shell of her ear between his teeth.

“Yes,” she sighed. “I did.”

“How did you feel when you thought about it—when you imagined all the wicked things I did to those other ladies?”

His hands worked at the buttons running down her back, sliding them loose one by one, opening her gown.

“Jealous,” she admitted.

He gripped the sleeves of her gown and pulled, lowering it to the floor to pool around her feet. His hands took her waist and he pulled her against him, his lips trailing along her shoulder.

“Did you fantasize about me, Maggie? Did you wonder what it would be like to be one of them?”

“I did,” she said, her voice low and husky. “At night, alone in my bed, I closed my eyes and tried to imagine what it was like to be with you.”

“Oh, Maggie,” he said, his voice tinged with amusement and mock horror. “Never say you were ever so naughty.”

She giggled, bit her lower lip, and leaned back against him, resting her head on his chest. “I was.”

“You touched yourself when you thought about me, didn’t you?” One of his hands slid across her stomach, lowering slowly toward the apex of her thighs. “Did you pleasure yourself to fantasies of me?”

He cupped her mons, his fingers massaging gently and drawing moisture from her core.

“Yes,” she gasped, her voice strained as he continued to tease her. “Yes, I did.”

“Show me,” he whispered, removing his hand.

She groaned in agitation, wishing for his touch again. Yet, he seemed to be waiting for her to fulfill his command.

“Show me how you pleasured yourself, Maggie,” he said, his voice a bit rougher this time—a demand she dared not refuse. Not if she wished for more of the pleasure he could give her.

Jilted once before, now it’s her turn to level the playing field.

Hotshot sports reporter Sage Millan has been busy making a name for herself in the male dominated world of baseball. She’s just landed her dream job, and her first assignment is covering the newly crowned World Series champions, The Kingston Crushers. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. The only problem…her ex-boyfriend, and the only man she’s ever loved, is the team’s second baseman. Things ended badly between them, and she’s not sure she can put those demons to rest.

Professional baseball player Nicolas Cordova is having the time of his life. His team has just won the World Series, and with the victory comes more fame, women, and exposure than he ever could have imagined. But things are about to change for the sexy, charismatic athlete. He never expected his ex-girlfriend to walk back into his life, much less the locker room.

These days Sage is smarter, more mature, and doesn’t plan on being played a second time. Her appearance stirs old memories for Nic. She’s the one he let get away in the name of his career. He vows he can be the man she needs this time around. Will that be enough to mend her broken heart?

Content Warning: contains explicit sex and adult content


“I’ll admit I’ve had many women in the past, and I can’t apologize for living. But as the years went by, my feelings for you were always someplace deep in my heart. I know that’s why I can’t settle down. Why I can’t find the peace I’ve been searching for. It doesn’t exist without you.”

“How can you say things like that? You don’t even know the woman I’ve become. I’m not that girl who relied on you, the one who would’ve followed you anywhere. I’m not her anymore, Nic. I can’t ever be her again.”

“Maybe I’m not asking for her.” He leaned closer to her face. “Maybe I want to know the woman you are today. I want another shot at this.”

“No,” she whispered.

“If you remember anything about me, I have a hard time with that word.” He tipped her chin, focusing on her lips. “I am going to kiss you. Right here and right now.”

Her knees buckled as a cool tremor swept through her. She wanted to say no. It was the only logical word to mutter, but her heart didn’t want her to say it. Her body wasn’t on board with turning him down either. The warmth that built in her stomach had moved lower, and now all she could think about was his lips on hers.

“It doesn’t sound like you’re asking,” she breathed out.

“I’m not.”

Before she could say anything else, his mouth was on hers, eager, but slow and soft. His stubble grazed along her chin as he tilted his head and deepened their bond. The sound throughout the crowded lobby seemed to fade into the background, and soon, all she could hear was her heart pumping loud between her ears. Why did he have to be such a freakin’ good kisser?

After the incredibly long connection, he pulled away, but not before stopping to kiss the bottom corner of her mouth like he used to.

“I’ve waited a long time to do that,” he said. “It was worth every lonely minute.”

“I… Nic…” She’d always had the gift of words. It was what she did for a living, but in that moment, all of her thoughts were jumbled and senseless.

“It’s okay.” He grinned as he stroked her cheek. “Let’s get something to eat and maybe figure this out. Whatever this is.”

“No.” She ran her hands along his strong chest, resting them on his shoulders.

“Don’t over analyze this, baby.” He glanced down at her hands on his body. “Let’s just go with it.”

“That’s what I’m trying to tell you.” She took a breath and continued before she lost her nerve. “Take me upstairs to your room. I know how we can figure this out.”

“What are you asking?” He placed his hand on the small of her back, drawing her closer to him. “You need to be real clear.”

“I want to go upstairs with you.”

“That’s not why I kissed you.”

“Isn’t it?” She smirked. “We’re adults now, Nicky. Let’s settle this like adults.”

“I’m not looking to settle anything. That usually means it’s over, and we’re nowhere near over.” He motioned for Joe. “I’ll take care of the bar tab and then we’ll get dinner.”

“No.” She draped her arms around his neck, intoxicated by the idea of being so close to him again. He may be older now, and may have lost those boyish looks, but the man he had become suited him and drove her wild with need.

“What did I tell you about that word?”

“I can guarantee I won’t be using it once we’re in your bedroom.” She ran her tongue along her top lip. “I’m going to the ladies room. When I come out, if you’re not by the elevators waiting for me, I’ll know that kiss was nothing more than the heat of the moment and we can go on with our lives.”


“Shh.” She pressed her lips to his. “Now who’s over analyzing?” She reached for her purse and coat hanging on the back of the stool. “I’ll see you in a few minutes.” I hope.

This is book 2 in the Kingston Heat Series but both books stand alone and can be read in either order.

Book One… Stealing His Heart available now.

WARNING… Pax will steal your heart


Will the bad-boy pitcher strike out when it comes to love?

Shy music teacher Sophia Ballis has sworn off men. After a bad experience with a college jock she decided it was better to be alone than to get burned again. She focused on her education and now her new job at a local private school.

Professional baseball pitcher Paxton Hughes is a player both on and off the field. He’s signed to the Kingston Crushers to bring home the coveted championship title. Nothing can get in his way. Serious relationships don’t mix with a life on the road and he never loses focus on the game. One-night stands are his specialty for a reason.

While out jogging one spring morning, the two collide, setting their course in motion. Pax is immediately drawn to the unassuming beauty. Sophia is aware of his reputation and decides one night of meaningless sex with the attractive Texas charmer is just what she needs to get over her self-imposed dry spell. Pax has more than a one-night stand on his mind, but will his bad-boy persona and demanding schedule ruin any chances of a happily ever after?

“Straddle me, sugar,” he said in a sandpaper voice, all grit.Willing to go where she knew she shouldn’t tread, she did what he asked, throwing

one leg over his lap, knees sinking into the leather cushion on either side of his denim

clad thighs. His hands went to her hips. Slid down farther, where he stopped. His

fingertips touched her flesh. Using his thumbs, he stroked the front of her thighs,

undoing her. Shivers traversed her arms and legs. Her sex pulsed.

He inched her skirt up, working until the fabric bunched around her waist. When cool

air struck the back of her thighs, one side of his mouth quirked up. He appeared pleased

with himself for exposing her panties.

“I’ll give you exactly what you crave,” he said and ripped the thong from her body.

Tiffany sucked in a breath. He threw the tattered silk to the floor with his right hand

while flicking her clit ring with the forefinger of his left. “Nice adornment.” He tugged on

her piercing, giving her the right amount of pressure. “But you need me to scratch your

itch, don’t you, baby?”

She’d come too far to lie about what she needed now. Nodding, she whispered,


He chuckled, and the sound was a flashpoint of sensation added to the slow stroke of

the fingers he’d slipped between her crease.

She leaned forward, hand resting on the top of the sofa by his head, and kissed him.

While their tongues tangled, he rubbed her, his other hand going to her hair where he

tugged the clip, releasing the long strands. They tumbled down her back in time with his

palm curling around the base of her neck, claiming her.

Oh, she liked the way he took possession. Everything feminine inside her needed the

pure maleness of him.

Tiffany nibbled at his bottom lip, pulling scant inches from his mouth. “You make me

burn,” she admitted.

“The feeling is mutual,” he said and plunged a finger inside of her.

“Ahh, yeah,” she uttered her approval.

He shoved his finger deeper. “You’re so wet.”


Her hand went to his bulging crotch. She squeezed him through his jeans. He

groaned. With nimble fingers, she unbuttoned his fly, freeing his thick cock from the

denim. When the heavy head rested in her palm, she smiled. He was fantastic, and she’d

known from past experience he’d be commando.

Wrapping her fingers around the base of his superb erection, she began to pump him.


“Hell, yes,” he said and fingered her in earnest, inserting another. His thumb pressed

hard against her clitoris, sending heated spikes of sensation through her body.

She moaned, spreading the silken pre-cum leaking from him with her fingertip and

licking her lips. Tiffany wanted to taste him. Put her lips over the crown. Skim her

mouth along his shaft. Take him down the back of her throat. She swallowed, knowing

the feeling when she took him inside her pussy would be even better. She needed to

experience her sex stretched over the head of his dick again. The fiery invasion. The

awareness of being totally filled when he pressed into her tight channel.

Her chest heaving, she mumbled, “Condom.”

“Sorry, sugar. We’ll have to settle for this,” he said. Declan removed his fingers from

her body and tugged her hips down on him before he placed his steel between her

feminine folds. “Slide your sweetness along the length of my cock.”

Oh, God. She was so slick, she easily made the glide up and down, her chest rubbing

against his.

In the next instant, he splayed his large hands across her ass, pulling her against him

even tighter. This was good, sex without penetration, something she’d never done

before, and the delicious sensation had her nipples pebbled hard against the material of

her bra, but when he flicked out his tongue, everything got better. She moaned and gave

him access to her neck, where he wasted no time and tickled the hollow of her throat

before he nipped at the soft flesh with his teeth. She shivered.

“There you go.” The vibration of his deep voice sent a wave of pleasure across the

canvas of her flesh. Every part of her body hungered for his touch. He slapped her ass.

She jumped and lost her rhythm—taken aback. “Faster,” he demanded, and she didn’t

have time to consider if she liked the swat or not. He spanked her again. “Move your fine


She complied, sliding herself up and down. He slapped her ass once more, but this

time the sensation sent a buzz to her already-stimulated clit. The joy spreading across

her caught— a wildfire.

“Again,” she uttered in a breathy voice.

“Like that, do you?”

God help her, she did.

A Look Inside The Weekend Surprise by Ella Jade

You might have read here before that I’m an Ella Jade fan. I enjoy her books because they give me that perfect escape filled with temptation, passion, and the anticipation of the famous question of will they or won’t they make it to their happily ever after. She always delivers and the sequel to The Weekend Proposition is another beautiful example.

In The Weekend Surprise, we get to know the other Cannon brother, Tyler. He picks up Sammy at the bar during a wedding reception. The chemistry between them is undeniable. The instant spark leads them to some of the most tempting and tantalizing scenes. Yum! Tyler likes to talk dirty too. I honestly can’t pick which Cannon brother I like best. It’s one hot Cinderella story. Ella Jade really delivers on this one. The story continues with a fabulous twist and turn and a satisfying ending too. It’s another 5-star read.

Below I have all the details on these two great reads. I’m excited to announce the release of the anticipated sequel to The Weekend Proposition is available now! Enjoy!

Meet the Cannon Brothers…


A chance meeting or a calculated encounter? Someone is in for a surprise.
Brooklyn Conservatory student Sammy Falcone lives a quiet and modest life. She’s busy studying classical music, playing her cello, and trying to make ends meet. After she learns of her deceased mother’s secret that may involve the Cannon family, she heads to a wedding to catch a glimpse of the privileged clan, never expecting to come face-to-face with them.
Tyler Cannon must abandon his wild, partying ways and step up to help his brother Spencer run the family advertising business. When he meets Sammy at his brother’s wedding he’s immediately taken by the reserved beauty. Her innocence and simple lifestyle intrigue him enough to become a one-woman man.
Sammy is drawn to Tyler’s charm and the attention he shows her. Once she gets to know him, the secrets of her mother’s past are no longer important. The problem is Spencer has been suspicious of her from the beginning. Will Spencer’s overprotectiveness of his family ruin her chances with Tyler? And if the truth comes out, will Sammy be able to convince Tyler that she never meant his family any harm?

This is the sequel to The Weekend Proposition but both books stand alone.

One weekend—no strings, no expectations, and no commitments. On Sunday afternoon it all ends, or does it?
No-nonsense businessman Spencer Cannon has a dilemma. He’s headed to Connecticut for the weekend to attend his cousin’s elaborate wedding. His whole family will be there in addition to his obsessed ex-girlfriend Ava. According to Spencer’s brother, Ava has been telling her friends she’s planning a magical reunion with her favorite ex-boyfriend. Spencer’s not in the mood to deal with her, but he can’t miss the wedding. He needs a plan.
Struggling Brooklyn waitress and aspiring graphic designer Dakota Vercelli has fallen on hard times. College debts, pending eviction, and her sick mother are taking a toll on her. A chance encounter with Mr. Cannon, CEO of Cannon and Carrington Advertising, leads to a proposition that may be just the thing to solve both of their problems. Spencer’s offer—spend four days with him during the wedding festivities and keep his ex off his trail. In return, he’ll compensate her generously for her time. He needs a weekend girlfriend, and Dakota needs the cash.
It was just supposed to be a business deal, but after sharing a room, kissing under the stars, and attending a wedding, their attraction is undeniable. Will the illusion end when the weekend is over or is the proposition just the beginning?

Ten Things to know about the Club Blind series

I’m so excited that the first in my Club Blind series is finally out. I’ve been wanting to share this story for so long, but other stories needed to come first. I’ve had a plan and today I’m giving you a closer look. There are ten things I want to share with you today and you’ll begin to see this new series is not only closely related but intertwined with my Love Projects series.

club blind logo

  • All of the Club Blind stories will be standalones. However, there will be fun overlaps and character cameos from not only this series but the Love Projects series too. The heroine for what will be my 3rd Love Projects book was once married to the hero from In the Blind and the heroine for what will be my 4th Love Projects book is the best friend of the heroine from In the Blind. No seven degrees needed here, lol.
  • I’ve added to my Love Projects chart which I debuted during this post back in June.

LP and CB chart

  • In the Blind has an epilogue, but there’s also a break in time towards the beginning of the story. This is definitely a second chances type of story.
  • The epilogue for In the Blind has a clue for the 3rd book in the series.
  • The theme for the 2nd book will be a whole new play on date night. More on that soon.
  • The theme for the 3rd book will be something completely new for me. I’ll say this, there will be three point of views.
  • The heroines for both the 2nd and 3rd books in the Club Blind series you’ve met before if you’ve read any of my books and my one Romance on the Go. Can you guess who they are? Love it when side characters get their own time to shine.
  • There are two characters that have either appeared or have been mentioned in all of my books. That is still true even with the release of In the Blind. I’m curious if anyone knows who they are?
  • I’ll also tell you that one will star in the final book in the Love Projects series and the other will star in the final book in the Club Blind series.
  • When I submitted In the Blind to Evernight it already had an epilogue, but what I didn’t know is that it was missing a whole chapter. That’s right, the last chapter was added after they accepted and contracted the book. The last chapter and the first chapter have to be my favorite chapters. Don’t make me pick which I love more. I can’t do it.

 I hope you enjoyed my list and I hope you get a chance to read In the Blind. 🙂

The door continued to open every few minutes. Finally, the woman in front of Jane was taken away. She could see nothing past the door besides black. Until the door closed, she continued gazing into the darkness. How would the loss of sight change the experience? Would she feel more? What would he feel like? Nerves shook through her limbs, and sweat tickled her palms.

The door opened, and she stood straight as a statue. This was crazy. She searched for pockets in her robe. When she found none, she swallowed back a curse.

The escort stopped in front of her. “Are you having second thoughts?” He shifted the goggles higher on his forehead.


“Would you like to step back and wait to go or …” He stepped back and cracked the door open. “Sometimes it helps to hear the sounds of the other participants.”

She closed her eyes and took in the moans and let her mind drift to what her body would feel like to make her make those kinds of sounds.

“I don’t want to pressure you. Tell me what you want.”

“Thank you.” She opened her eyes and took a step towards him. The only way was forward. “I’m ready.”

“Good for you.” He reached out and took hold of her hand. “Come on, I’ll take you to the lucky one, for tonight.” He winked and tugged her forward.

Once the door closed behind them, Jane was surrounded by unending black. She looked around, but there was nothing, no end to the darkness. A nervous shiver danced along her spine, followed by thoughts of haunted houses. What would she find around the next corner? Her escort tugged her forward, bringing her back to the night’s purpose.

She needed to remember why she was here. She needed to live in the moment. There was a good chance she was about to touch the man who would give her release.

They slowed, turned a corner, and after a couple more steps they stopped. She swallowed the lump in her throat when her escort placed her hand into another’s.

“Enjoy.” He squeezed her shoulder, and she sensed his presence leave the space.

A pull on her hand forced her feet forward a couple of steps. She stopped just as abruptly when she bumped into a hard chest—the man of the hour. This man would touch her soon, but he wasn’t yet. He was only holding her hand. Her breasts moved with her uneven breathing, and her nipples scraped against his chest.

Why wasn’t he touching her? Was he nervous, too, or having second thoughts? She reached up in curiosity to make sure he wasn’t wearing a pair of night-vision goggles, but only found soft hair. She followed the section of hair to above his shoulder and continued onto smooth skin and around his shoulder to his bicep thick with muscle. Her heart thumped, and her breath quickened as moisture covered her needy pussy.

She breathed deeply, taking in his delicious musky scent. Her hand wandered to his chest and found more of the same, firm skin rounding over firm muscles. A warm hand landed over hers and held her hand tight to his chest. A nose tickled her ear.

“Do you like?”

“Yes,” she admitted.

“I’d like to explore you now, okay?”

“Yes, please.”

She pushed out the breath she held and worked to breathe normally. His hand landed softly on her cheek, fingertips caressed her chin, and then up to her temple. The gentle touches raised a long sleeping yearning within her, and she leaned into his touch.

His thumb swept across her bottom lip. Curiosity wore away her reserve, and she let her tongue reach out and taste his fingers. One digit pushed into her mouth, and she sucked lightly, enjoying his clean taste.

The finger left her mouth, a second of waiting, and then his mouth crushed down on hers. His lips were firm and demanding, feeding her hunger. He ran his fingers through her hair, and then his warm wet tongue swept through her mouth. Back and forth, deep, then gentle, their tongues dueled. She explored more of him as her need to know him intimately soared.

His touch lingered around her shoulders and down her sides. When he found her ass, he kneaded the globes. The kiss ended as abruptly as it started, leaving her wanting.

She heard nothing but the driving rhythm of the music, each track feeding right into another. The current song enchanted her, and her hips swayed. No one could see her, so there was no reason for self-conscious thoughts. The brilliance of the club hit her with full force. It didn’t matter who she was or who he was. Tonight, they celebrated life and the pleasures they could bring their bodies. Everyone deserved pleasure. Even her.

I am a happy author. My fabulous publisher, Evernight Publishing has published four of my books and that number will soon grow to five. I’m in the middle of my last round of edits. I cannot wait to share In the Blind with you.

Last year, I had no idea if my dream of becoming a published author would ever happen. When Evernight Publishing said yes that first time, they took a chance on a dreamer, a lover of romance, and a nervous Nellie, lol. Little did I know, I would be welcomed into a family with open arms. The friendships I’ve made are priceless.

Happy Bday EP

Today, I want to talk about my most recent release with Evernight. It’s the second book in my Love Projects series, Taking Courage. Here are quotes from a couple reviews on Goodreads:

“Author SJ Maylee keeps getting better and better!”

“This second book in the Love Project Series is witty and very steamy. Through the twists and turns, this book keep me enraptured until the end. And having a little of Jake and Lydia thrown is was a plus. What’s next Ms. Maylee? Cause I cannot wait!!”

“Prep list before you start reading this book: 1. A comfortable spot 2. A glass of wine 3. A vibrator and finally total privacy. Not an exaggeration if the chemistry between Janna and Simon upon first meeting isn’t enough to melt your undies off some of their scenes definitely will do the trick!”


Below is an excerpt from the first chapter. During her last night in town, Janna finally enters Club Voyage, a private BDSM club, as a guest. Her escort for the evening has asked her to strip and she’s about half way there. Enjoy!


The sounds of the club nagged at her attention, but they couldn’t compete with the dominant male watching her every move. She had a feeling his attention could be addictive.

She shook her head. Now was not the time to analyze. It was time to act. Her bra and panties needed to come off. She needed to reveal her body, not to the room, to this man … correction, this Dom. She was not leaving without giving this a real try.

Her gaze locked onto his and remained. After one more deep breath, she reached around and unclipped her bra. The free hand held the cups and smashed them into her chest. One arm, then the other and her shoulders were free. After one more deep breath, her fingers clawed around the bra cups and pulled, revealing her small breasts.

Cool air swirled around her tender tight nipples, and his gaze remained, unwavering. Could he see the nerves dancing along her skin? Her thumbs dragged along her thighs to her hips, hooked the corner of her panties, and pulled.

With the last of her clothes set on the table, she straightened her back and let her shoulders fall. She’d done it.

Master Simon made quick work of the buttons on his shirt, pulling it off his thick shoulders and added the garment to her pile. He stalked towards her, stopped about a foot away, tempting her. “Well done, pet.”

She melted on the inside and swayed her hips as warmth filled her core. His gaze released her, and she stood silent as he looked her over. Nerves threatened to walk back in, but she barred the way.

“Turn back around now and watch the others around us.”

A couple of new scenes had started. One in particular caught her attention. The sub was strapped to a horse of sorts and the Dom was fucking her from behind. Janna’s nipples tightened further, and her core heated until honey coated her sex. She’d watched similar scenes on-line dozens of times. The live version was unbearably hotter. A moan escaped her lips.

“You’re beautiful.” His warm body pressed up against her back, and a hand slid along her waist pulling her into him. She melted. His mouth caressed her ear. “Do you like what you see, pet?” He pressed her hips back against his fly. His hand lifted from her belly and smacked her pussy.

“Oh.” A delicious mingling of sensations floated over her.

“You must answer my questions. Do you understand?”

“I do, Sir.” Her sex heated further.

“Do you like what you see?” His hand returned to her stomach and pulled, pressing their bodies together.

“Yes, Sir.”

“I will be touching you while you watch the sub get fucked. You are free to orgasm.”

“Thank you, Sir.”

“You will use your safe word if you need to?”

“Yes, Sir.”

He shifted and pressed his hard cock into the left side of her ass. “Very good, pet. Now, watch the couple while I explore your body.”

His hand moved along her stomach and up to take hold of her breast, molding and tugging on the supple skin. She had never felt more alive. Pressure encased her nipples as he pinched and pulled.

“Oh!” Clamps were no match for the tension he was able to elicit. Her breasts swelled with glorious pleasure. “Sorry, Sir.”

“You can vocalize your pleasure. I like knowing you like what I do to you. Now is not the time for conversation, however. Unnecessary words will lead to punishment.” He pulled her nipples again. “I suspect you like the way that feels?”

“Yes, Sir. I do, more than I even thought I would.”

He pulled tighter and let go. Blood rushed back in, and her pleasure rose. She wanted to beg him to touch her pussy, but knew that might halt his progress and bring her away from her impending pleasure.

She let go of her need and watched the sub. She was bound and only moved when her Dom entered her from behind. The subs here had no control over what happened to their bodies. These Doms decided what they needed.

He pinched and pulled again. Her sex screamed to be touched. Fortunately, he left her stinging nipples and traveled in a line direct to her bare pussy. He pulled her outer lips apart, revealing her inner lips to anyone looking back at them and allowed the air in the room to feather across her damp skin.


His fingers delved into her. First one finger and then two pushed into her pussy and dragged the wetness around her clit. He pinched and pulled in short tugs to her clit, each time drawing more blood to the tender area. The pattern drove her right to the edge.

“Take a couple steps forward, spread your legs, and support yourself on the table.” When she didn’t move he added, “Now, pet.”


 Did it just get hot in here. 😀


Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.

banner blogiversary 4 yrsCongratulations to Guilty Indulgence on four fabulous years. 😀

I love to indulge, especially when it comes to my addiction to hot romances. My heroines are hard working ladies. I may not make their path to love easy, but I make sure the reward is worth it.

In my latest release, Taking Courage, Janna and Simon are having a hard time getting past their bumpy start. She fears he’ll never really want her and he’s not ready to see her go. In this snippet you’ll see if this is where it will end or if it’s just the hot indulgent beginning.


She pulled herself from his hold a little too easily. It only took a couple steps to get out of his reach.

“I’m sorry this didn’t work out. I’ll contact Charlie. Maybe she can set up a meet for Friday and I’ll be off your hands.”

“Now, wait a minute.”

“I’m sorry for the trouble I’ve caused you. I get it now.” She stepped closer to the door and her escape route. “I shouldn’t have put you in this position.”

“Would you just hold on for a minute? Stop running from me.”

She stopped moving.

“Get back over here. I didn’t release you.”

She pivoted on the balls of her feet, and he pointed to the space in front of him. She squeezed in between Simon and the desk. He leaned forward and forced her back. She rested her elbows on the desk and knocked her head into his laptop. He pushed it away.

Silently he opened her blouse. Her bra had a front closure, and he released it as well. She flicked off her shoes and pulled up her feet to rest them on the edge of the desk. He grabbed hold of her pussy and returned her to the moment and his control.

Long seconds ticked by as he watched her. Was he making a decision about her, or had he done it already? She bit her lip. Vulnerability rolled in waves over her. Simon had exposed her in a whole new way. Why was she letting him do this to her?

“Maybe I’m giving you a hard time because I’ve been hurt before by lies.” He looked like a judge deciding her fate.

“I’m sorry, Sir.”

“Thank you.” He flexed his fingers, reminding her of her position. “Here’s where I stand. I do believe your actions weren’t meant to be manipulative, and I’ll stop bringing it up.” His eyes raked over her, and flames licked through her body. “But don’t think I’ll let you get away with lies by omission again.”

“I know,” she spat out.

He squeezed the folds around her pussy.

“Thank you, Sir.”

“Now, as for me wanting you.” He pulled her hips to the edge of his desk. “Give me your hand.”

She reached for him, and he pulled her to sitting. With a kiss to her palm, he pressed her hand around the hard ridge of his cock.

“I’ve been hard for you all day. I know the soft, warm grip of your pussy, and it’s all I could think about today, especially after feeling your ass and watching your squirm through the meeting.” He stroked her hand up and down on his hard length. “You’re breathtaking, Janna. Having control over your body is quickly becoming my obsession. I can’t get you out of my head. I couldn’t wait to touch your pussy again, to taste you, watch you pulsate as your orgasm rises and you come all over my tongue.”

“Yes, please, Sir.”

“I’ll help you to learn the path as my submissive, and we’ll take the rest one day at a time.” He bent over her and took her left nipple into his mouth and pushed the heel of her hand down the edge of his cock.

“Oh, Sir.”

“I must warn you.” He tugged on her nipple with his teeth and let it go. “Do you remember your safe word?”


Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.
