Welcome to Saturday Spankings. I’m sharing a snippet from Indulge Me, my latest release. Saffron has stumbled upon a strange gathering and intrigued by what she sees, she is unable to tear herself away. Is it something she desires for herself?
When the man with the cane raised it, Saffron looked away. The swish and thwack followed quickly, then the submissive’s replying shriek.
“Another ten, then you can come again,” the man stated. “What do you say to that?”
“Oh, thank you, sir,” she murmured.
The gratitude wasn’t what Saffron expected. All around the room were sounds of pleasure, not protestations, nor screams of pain or distressed crying and in amongst the confusing medley, she heard the odd chuckle of laughter.
The shock passed. As she acclimatised herself to her discovery—understanding this was what the room was designed for and the guests were there of their own volition—she was drawn into watching.
She sees him once.
He’s standing across the wine cellar watching her when their eyes meet. Miles away from home in California’s Napa Valley, she’s caught in his gaze. Though, neither one speaks, for a moment the rest of the world falls away, and she sends him a smile.
She sees him again.
Back home in England. Is it the same man? In the middle of a crowded wine fair, she spots him. A smile of recognition, but no words exchanged. She shakes it off, the same line of business, the same events, it’s a small world.
The third is no coincidence.
She’s running a private tasting and in walks her mystery man, dressed in a fine suit. What does she really know about him other than they share a love of wine? She’s intrigued, even more so when she discovers he has sought her out. When he invites her to a private session in a wine cellar, deep underneath a castle, she begins to uncover his secrets.
Saffron surrenders her body and embarks on an indulgent journey with the attractive sommelier, Gideon. As a wine taster, Saffron continually uses her senses to carve out a successful career, driving her to the peak of her profession. However, when Gideon leads her on an erotic adventure fueled by passion and self-discovery, she’s startled to learn that she’s been living her life ignorant of sensory pleasures that require other talents, ones she’d never explored with her previous, disastrous lover. That man, who envies her success, is waiting to strike back and destroy everything she has achieved.
