Hey all! I hope you're having a delicious weekend. I'm sharing from Punishing Portia today, one of the two books of mine that are on heavy discount this weekend. Punishing Portia is a Masters of the Castle book that follows the story of a slave purchased at auction by the man she'd just lambasted in a review.
Portia lay inches away from safe-wording. Tension rolled off her in waves as she shifted around in the cage. He pretended to be going about his business nonchalantly, unpacking both their bags, but the truth was, she had him sweating. He didn’t want her to use her safe word--not theirs, and especially not the Castle’s. He prided himself on handling his subs with the kind of awareness that prevents the need to even have a safe word. And the last thing he wanted was to lose the slave for whom he’d just paid four thousand dollars. But it went deeper than the money. It went deeper, even than revenge. Despite the insurmountable issue of the review, they had chemistry. Real dom/sub chemistry that is hard to come by. He’d never had it with anyone to this degree, and the thought of losing it made him itchy.
But he also didn’t want to let her out, especially when she demanded it. If he did, he’d lose all respect as a dom.
“May I take my boots off?” she wheedled.
“No,” he answered without turning.
She moved around--sitting, coming back to her knees, wrapping her fingers through the bars of her doggy-jail.
“Please...I have to pee. You have to let me out,” she begged.
He ignored her.
Portia shifted position in the cage, doing an about-face to watch him. Judging from the crackle of tension in the air, she was about to lose it.
Punishing Portia by Darling Adams (Renee Rose)
When well-known chef and restaurateur David Marone recognizes the food critic who just lambasted him in a review on the charity auction block, he bids an inordinate amount to keep her as his slave for three nights. He remembers the haughty foodie from culinary school seventeen years earlier, and relishes the idea of getting even with her for her mean-spirited review.
Portia Sands hopes the dark and gorgeous Chicago chef who won the bid for her at the Castle charity auction doesn’t know her real identity as the food critic who tore him apart in a review the week before. She finds he hasn’t changed since culinary school--still arrogant, over-confident and domineering. Unfortunately, he has the same effect on her now as he did then: reducing her to a trembling mass of jello.
When he pushes her to her limits, placing her in a cage like a pet, she discovers he knows who she is, and means to exact revenge. She considers calling the Castle safeword to end their time together, but some part of her won’t allow it. Somehow she must survive three nights as his slave and keep her heart in the process.
"Lovers of BDSM stories, and spanking in particular, will enjoy PUNISHING PORTIA on many levels. Those new to the ideas and lifestyle shouldn't find the story overwhelming, but may find that they would prefer not to sit down anytime soon." --The Romance Reviews [Top Pick]
"It's a lovely kinky time with some modified pet-play. The story is sensual and believable from start to finish. The pet-play is well done in this one and enjoyable for those just learning about how pet-play dynamic can work." --La Crimson Femme / Manic Readers
