Mid Week Tease! Playing with the Dom from Taking Courage, Love Projects Series #BDSM

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesHappy Hump Day!

I want to give a shout out to the amazing Angelica Dawson for keeping this group going each week.

I’m working on the 4th book in my Love Projects Series. I’ve been looking forward to writing this one for a long time. The hero has been mentioned in every Evernight book I’ve written. I’ve got a HUGE crush on this guy. HUGE! ❤

So, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the scenes he’s been in before I start teasing you from the WIP.

In this scene (a continuation from my last tease), from Love Projects 2, it’s Janna’s first day and Keller is already deep into his match-making plans. She’s in Keller’s office and he’s re-introduced her to Simon, the Dom she can’t stop thinking about. There’s only one giant problem. She’s certain Simon must despise her for how she handled their first scene. Let’s see if she can turn things around. ❤


“No one’s in the mood to laugh. Got it.” Keller stepped in-between them. “I was hoping you two could start over. Hear me out?” After a bit of silence he added, “Have a seat.”

Janna sat first, and then Simon joined her in the other guest chair.

“Simon’s the Director of one of our application development departments, and he’s been begging me for a Project Manager of his own. We have a few, but they’re spread rather thin.”

“Our next project is scheduled for scope approval by the board Wednesday night. The documents aren’t complete yet, but I don’t want to wait another month for approval,” said Simon.

“I can help you with that. Scope documents are my specialty.” She sat up straighter in her chair.

“Fine, you can be my Project Manager. But you better get up to speed fast.” Simon’s eyes shot daggers of disgust.

“Lovely.” Only her eyes turned to Keller. “I assume my company laptop is already set up and my email is live?”

“Of course, it’s all in your office. Anne will take you there.”

“Excellent.” She turned her glare to Simon. “Send me everything you have so far. I’ll review the documents while you schedule a meeting at the end of the day, for the top level team members only.”

His anger seemed to seize at her direct order. Having some control over this Dom was going to be fun.

Blurb:

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.

Mid Week Tease! Sink or swim time from Taking Courage, Love Projects Series #BDSM

click to see SJ's Mid Week TeasesHappy Hump Day!

I want to give a shout out to the amazing Angelica Dawson for keeping this group going each week.

So, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the scenes he’s been in before I start teasing you from the WIP.

In this scene, from Love Projects 2, it’s Janna’s first day and Keller is already deep into his match-making plans. She’s just entered Keller’s office and he’s about to re-introduce her to Simon, the Dom she can’t stop thinking about. There’s only one giant problem. She’s certain he must despise her for how she handled their first scene. It’s sink or swim time. ❤


“Come on in and take a seat,” Keller said.

She followed him into a vast office. No books lined the walls, although the panels all had grooves, like maybe they could be turned. Maybe they opened into secret passages. She made a mental note to ask Anne. Any night, but Friday.

“Thanks again for taking a chance on me.”

“Nonsense, you have an impressive record. The chance was yours to take, and I’m glad you did, but you might want to save the thanks until you hear more about your first project.” He looked at something behind her. “Yes, Simon, right on cue.”

Shit. What was Keller up to? She didn’t want to turn around, didn’t want to see the loathing in his eyes.

“What did you want, Keller? I have a mess on my hands today,” Simon said.

“Yes, I know the extent of the situation, and I have just the thing here to help. Simon Young, I’d like you to meet your new Project Manager, Janna Hall.”

Double shit. Janna should have known this whole situation was too good to be true. Good thing she hadn’t unpacked much. She’d never been fired on the first day before. Disappointment was a mean trick, and defiance took hold. Where was her mantra for the day? With her chin up, she turned to face him.

My Sexy Saturday -No More Panties!- A snippet from Taking Courage, Love Projects 2 #BDSM #EroticRomance

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday.

Today, I’m sharing from Taking Courage, Love Projects 2.

These sexy paragraphs show Simon’s first command for his submissive trainee, Janna. It’s just the beginning of their relationship.

Aw! ❤ Enjoy!


“I trust you, Sir.” Her eyes drank him in, feeding his desire to dominate her.

“You do?”

“Yes, Sir. I also respect you for holding me accountable for my misstep.”

“Thank you. Well, this is a good place to begin.” He let her go, took a couple steps back, and folded his arms across his chest. “I have a few ground rules. Are you ready?”

“Yes, Sir.”

“First, no more panties.”

“At the club?”

“Anywhere. Since you don’t want to wait, while you are my trainee, I want you as aware of your body as possible. Your panties are an unnecessary barrier.” Holding the attention of a willing submissive was like a drug to Simon. Her gaze told of her concentration, but it was her sweet musk filling the air that would do him in. “Take care of your things here, then remove those panties, and get your ass to my office. You have five minutes.”

My Sexy Saturday -Her Sexy Fantasy- A snippet from Taking Courage, Love Projects 2

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday.

Today, I’m sharing from Taking Courage, Love Projects 2.

Thesesexy paragraphs show a bit of Janna’s fantasy and why she’s taken the steps to visit a BDSM club for the first time. Master Simon is her escort for the evening.

❤ Enjoy!


She turned to Master Simon. “Can I take a closer look?”

“Absolutely, show me what interests you.”

Her feet found their way.

A woman knelt before her Dom with her eyes focused on him alone. Her hands were bound behind her back. Janna melted in want. The man thrust his cock in and out of her mouth, his control clear. Heat pooled between Janna’s legs, and her breasts tingled with desire.

She licked her lips and turned to Master Simon, who was watching her. His hands may be casually tucked into the front pocket of his pants, but his eyes had turned to a darker shade of green. Her nipples tightened. She couldn’t tell what was pulling her into the moment more, the beautiful scenes around her or the observant Master at her side.

She could see why her friends in the chat rooms called the attention of a Dom addictive. All the scenes she’d read hadn’t prepared her for the power of his look. It was beautiful. It was true. She had to know more.

She wanted a man to want to dominate her. She wanted this man to dominate her.

“You like what you see?”

My Sexy Saturday -Meeting Master Simon- A snippet from Taking Courage, Love Projects 2

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday.

Last week, I shared from the first in my Love Projects Series. Today, I’m sharing from Taking Courage, Love Projects 2.

These 7 sexy paragraphs take place in the opening pages, when Janna first meets Master Simon. Janna is signing in for her first visit to Club Voyage and in walks a Master.

❤ Enjoy!


The man stopped next to her, and her ability to play cool faltered. A Master. She took a deep breath and drank him in, starting with his dark boots of luscious black leather. Her gaze took the scenic route along his legs, drank in his firm body, to his broad chest encased in a casual black shirt.

“Can I see your ID?”

She continued her perusal of the Master and found the hard angle of his jaw and stopped at his striking green eyes, which were set directly on her. She couldn’t move. With his look alone, he commanded her attention.

“Miss, your ID, please.”

“Sorry, of course.” She yanked her thoughts back to her situation and into her purse. Heat flashed across her cheeks, and her fingers tripped over themselves. Finally, she pulled the card from the tight inside pocket and passed it to the man.

He pulled her ID down to her paperwork, clearly comparing the two. He looked up at her a few times and back at the ID. Her gaze drifted back to the Master next to her. He was still watching her.

“Very good.” He handed the ID back to her, and she slipped it back into her purse. “Mistress Charlie wanted to escort you into the club, but she’s busy with a collaring ceremony at the moment. She asked me to give you this if you arrived before she was finished.” He handed her a folded note.

The hand writing was crisp, but the statement was tender—the two qualities she’d come to recognize in Charlie. She read the simple message again. You’re ready, my dear. The only thing you need to remember is to be open and honest.

“You’ll need to wait here for an escort, unless Master Simon has time to escort you tonight.”

My Sexy Saturday -Welcome to Club Voyage- a snippet from Taking Courage

My Sexy Saturday - click to see their site

Hello! Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. This snippet is from the first chapter in Taking Courage. It’s one of my Contemporary Erotic Romance D/s Novellas that released last year. Master Simon is escorting Janna into Club Voyage. This is her first night at the BDSM club and it’s definitely a night to remember. Enjoy!

“Welcome to Club Voyage, Janna.”

“Thank you, Sir.” She took a couple steps to get her through the doorway. The smells hit her first, leather, sweat, and sex. Club music, with a heavy bass, beat against her body. She stopped and waited for Master Simon to walk around her and lead her into the room.

Her gazed centered on his lower back and his fine ass. He stopped, turned back to her, and most certainly caught her checking him out. Warmth gathered in the center of her chest and spread.

“You need to stay close to me this evening.” He reached out and grasped her shoulder. His fingers caressed in a gentle motion. “Close enough for me to touch, okay?”

“Okay. I like the sound of that, Sir.”

“Take a look around the room. Notice the different sections, the ropes that cordon off the play areas, the signs at each station.” He walked around her, took her hand, and pulled her further into the room. “Along with my Master duties here, I’m also a trainer. Feel free to ask me any questions.”

“Thank you, Sir.”

The darkness of the room did nothing to hide the decadence. Couples gyrating on the dance floor caught her attention first with their beautiful imitation of sex. Smacks of paddles, whooshes of whips, and bodies meeting filled the room with sound. Her eyes, wide with trepidation and exhilaration, located the nearest scene.

She turned to Master Simon. “Can I take a closer look?”

Mid Week Tease – He Knows Exactly What She Needs – a snippet from Taking Couage

click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the amazing, Sandra Bunino for bringing us together. I love the new flirty graphic she’s given us. Thank you, Sandra!

Before I start sharing from my story that’s releasing in the next Evernight Anthology in February, I’m visiting each of my released books. Here are links to those I’ve shared already:

Taking Chances | Untangle Me | In the Blind

This week, I’m going to share a snippet from Taking Courage. I just received a fabulous new review from Cocktails and Books. 😀 Click the link or look for the quote below. In this snippet: It’s the end of a long workday for Janna and Simon. She’s just entered his office and is looking out his window. Enjoy!

______________

“You’ve been working your ass off.” His voice came from farther away than expected. The door lock slipping into place filled the silence in the room.

“I have been working hard. I didn’t realize until just now how worn out I am. I need to relax and clear my head.”

“I know exactly what you need.”

Her emotions felt like a six lane roundabout holding her captive. No simple answers, only dangers bombarded her from all sides. Her father held the keys to one kind of known comfort, but she refused to live under his thumb any longer. Besides, nothing he could offer could compete with the passion coursing through her veins or her need for the man approaching her.

When she found out he worked for Keller on Monday morning she never would have guessed she’d be able to haggle a second chance from him.

As the sounds of a desk drawer sliding open came to her ears, she turned and watched him pull a bottle of lube and a couple of condoms from his desk. His gaze fell on her, and he slid the drawer closed.

He joined her at the window, pressed his body deliciously into hers, and he sucked her earlobe into his hot mouth.

“You’ve been in my thoughts all day.” He blew on her wet lobe and sent a shiver down her spine. “Do you see the fallen tree?”

“The one lying across the ravine?”

“That’s the one. The way the tree broke makes it easy to restrain someone.” He pressed his hard cock into the seam of her ass. “There’s just enough foliage out there to shelter the view from everywhere but our building.”

“Have you?” She regretted the question as soon as it slipped out. The thought of Simon dominating anyone but her snagged a spur across her heart. The damn idea left her stomach rolling uncomfortably.

“No, I haven’t, but I’d like to.” His hands reached across her stomach and took possession of her breasts. “I know people who have, and they recommend it. I recommend we don’t wait for tomorrow night. I can’t wait another minute before having you.”

“Oh, yes, Sir.” She arched her back, pressing her breasts into his hands. A slight adjustment of her feet made his cock press against the plug. All worries fluttered away as desire and heat stole the show. Would he take her, right here in his office, in front of the window? She had yet to know how his cock would fill her. Dampness slipped down her inner thigh.

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.

Vulnerable.

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.”
