I'm treating you to another peek at my upcoming box-set release along with Abbie Adams (Darling's kissing cousin), Tabitha Black, Maggie Ryan and the genius behind the Masters of the Castle Series, Maren Smith! I left you last week with Portia discovering David Dean Marone, the chef who she just ripped apart in her last restaurant review, is another guest at the Castle. Here's what happens during their orientation...
He pinned his gaze to her left ear and willed her to turn and look at him. People know when they’re being watched, particularly so intently. She would feel it. Sure enough, her head wobbled a little on her neck and her chin began to turn, her eyes sliding to look over her shoulder.
He smirked, meeting her gaze with cool amusement.
She drew in a sharp breath, her eyes widening before she whipped her head back front, sitting up straighter than an Army general with a pole up her ass.
He almost laughed out loud. Paul shot him an amused look and he grinned. If life came with a personal DJ and soundtrack, right now he would cue “Bad to the Bone” because he truly felt like the big, bad wolf.
Masters of the Castle: Punishing Portia by Darling Adams
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.
Will she survive three nights as his slave? And if so, can she keep her heart in the process?
