Hey everyone! I’m super excited to share an excerpt from Bound to Submit, the first official book in my brand new and super-hot Blasphemy series! This is an erotic second-chance love story featuring a tormented Dom and a veteran amputee heroine – and these guys had such an amazing, yearning chemistry! I hope you’ll pick up your copy – and welcome to Blasphemy!
Now, here’s a little taste of the heat coming your way in Bound to Submit – enjoy!
After he bound her hands and feet, Griffin leaned in and kissed the corner of her mouth, the gesture a little reward that poked at things inside her chest. “I could be very happy with having you just like this. But do you want more, Kenna?”
“Yes. More, Sir, please.” She wanted rope marks imprinted deep into her skin. Everywhere.
His chuckle was full of a sexy smugness. “That almost sounded like begging. And I always did like when you begged.” He moved behind her, pulling the rope attached to her wrists around the back of her neck, knotting it to her opposite wrist, and then creating a crisscross that ran between her breasts and wrapped around her torso.
Kenna whimpered, because it felt fucking amazing to be bound this way. But she was going to cut the PVC bodysuit she’d worn to shreds the minute she got home for keeping her from feeling the rough, direct press of the twine.
“Regretting that suit now, aren’t you?” He came around her and winked as he surveyed his handiwork.
She twisted her lips and kept silent, because he already knew the answer. Damn him.
Silently, he walked around her, observing her as she observed him in return. The beautiful, confusing tattoo on his back. Those broad shoulders, the perfect fit of those black jeans on his thighs and ass, the prominent bulge of his cock under the denim, the longish black hair that she knew he loved for her to grip when they kissed. The thought made her struggle against the bindings.
He paused in front of her, his gaze dragging over his handiwork. “Fuck, Kenna. I have bound you in my dreams a thousand times.” He shook his head. “But not one of those compared to the privilege of actually getting my hands on you again.”
He’d dreamt of her? His words, being bound again after all this time, her arousal, all of it nearly made her dizzy.
And then he reached between her legs and unsnapped the closure of her bodysuit.
The contact of his fingers against her pussy and the too-quick brush of his touch against her clit made her moan and flinch forward.
Master Griffin caught and steadied her. “Be still, little one. And let me do what I will.”
She nodded, her brain and body still reeling. A light sheen of sweat broke out across her skin as anticipation flooded through her.
And then he left her. Her ears tuned into the movements he made from somewhere behind her, causing all that anticipation to ramp up even more until her lungs were working faster. The lights went down some and, combined with the music, the soft, golden dimness created an atmosphere that felt both sensual and risky, sexy and dangerous. And what he returned with made her inhale a fast breath.
A flogger. The kind with the delicious wide leather tails. He held the black-leather implement in both hands, the thick braided handle in his right, and the gathered tails in his left. He slapped the tails against his palm as he spoke. “Are you ready for some endorphins, Kenna?”
Kenna Sloane was born to submit; she was born to serve. It’s a part of herself that took her awhile to accept, but now it’s the part of her that needs help the most. After being medically discharged from the Marines, Kenna has lost her direction…she’s lost her career, her best friend, and her right forearm/hand. All of those losses have undoubtedly altered Kenna’s life, but after two years, she’s desperate to free herself from the grief, the regret, and the guilt, and the only way that will truly release her is being bound and surrendering herself to a Dom who knows exactly what to do with her body in order to settle her mind.
Master Griffin was born to dominate; he was born to bring pleasure to women by forcing their submission and binding them in ways that allow for overwhelming release, and while Griffin gets off on doling out commands and manipulating a woman’s body in a multitude of ways, he needs more than a bevy of different subs – he wants a partner; he wants someone collared to him…someone who he can call his own…too bad he gave up the one woman he wants for that position five years ago…
In Bound to Submit, Kenna and Griffin get their second chance…they get the opportunity to make amends for the past and reconnect in a way that will hopefully bind them together as Dom/sub as well as partners and lovers. But Griffin has his work cut out for him when it comes to repairing Kenna’s heart – the one he broke when he wasn’t able to commit to her all those years ago. Kenna may have returned to Blasphemy in order to work through her feelings while being bound and dominated, but in order to make her feel good again, he need to prove to her that his feelings for her are real and he desperately regrets his past actions.
Laura Kaye is one of my favorite writers because even though most of her stories are written in third person, she allows readers to truly know the characters’ thoughts and feelings, which is sometimes hard to accomplish. I felt Kenna’s anguish and devastation. I felt her frustration and guilt, and I also understood Griffin’s side of things and his desperation to bind himself to Kenna for life.
The BDSM scenes were expertly written and illustrated not just the physical effects of submission but also the mental release that takes place, which allowed me to understand people’s desire/need for this kind of kink. I can’t wait to see what other sides of the BDSM world Kaye will show readers as she tells the stories of Blasphemy’s other Masters.
I absolutely adored Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink men, but I have a feeling her Masters will tempt me just as much!
