sacrificed everything to keep him safe…
Five years ago, con artist Lisa Smith
broke the first rule of hustling when she fell in love with—and married—her mark,
billionaire Sawyer Hayes. The erotic nights spent acting out her darkest
fantasies with her husband and Master were the happiest of her life. But when
her ruthless father demanded she kill him and take his money, she had no choice
but to disappear without a trace…or lose him forever.
risk everything to have her again…
Now Sawyer has found her, and he has
an indecent proposal: submit to him for seven nights and he’ll grant her the
divorce she desires. Forced to pretend she no longer loves him, each night
spent in his arms is exquisite torture as they reignite their intense passion
through role play and ménage. But when a deranged killer out for revenge
targets Lisa, she must finally trust Sawyer with the secrets of her past…or
neither of them will live to see the future.
Scenes depicting BDSM, fisting, MMFMM, consensual non-consent, and references
seemed to have a will of its own as she clutched the fabric of his shirt in her
palm. “Show me what it’s like to be owned by you.”
his chest rising and falling harshly. “We should probably go downstairs, but I
don’t think I can wait that long.”
her wrist and dragged her down a hall that led to a bathroom. “The club safe
word is ‘red.’ Remember, you may be giving me control, but as the sub, you have
the power to stop the scene at any time by using the safe word. The pain I give
you should enhance your pleasure, not eclipse it. If it ever crosses that line
for you, I want you to tell me.”
She only knew
Sawyer was a Dominant, but she had no idea of the kinds of BDSM activities he
enjoyed. “Are you a sadist?”
He shook his
head as he opened the bathroom door and pulled her inside. “No, I wouldn’t
consider myself a sadist. I don’t get off on hurting people just for the sake
of it. My pleasure derives from giving my sub pleasure.” His arm reached behind
her to turn the lock. “I learned during my time in the Army that I preferred to
be the one in charge during sex. Maybe it was because I had no control in any
other aspect of my life at the time.” He shrugged, a hungry glimmer in his
eyes. “Who the hell knows where our sexual preferences come from? After basic
training, a buddy of mine took me to a BDSM club, and from that point on, I was
hooked. I stayed away from relationships. Never considered having a permanent
sub.” He backed her up against the door, his hard cock pressing against her
pussy. “Until ten minutes ago. I don’t know who the fuck sent you and who I
need to thank, but right now, I don’t fucking care. All I need to know is if
you taste as good as I think you will.”
He fell to
his knees and raised her skirt to her waist, and then he ran his nose up her
slit, inhaling deeply. “You smell like a dream.” He didn’t give her any time to
think before he tore the gusset of her panties, exposing her folds to him.
“Fuck. Bare for me. You are a dream.” His tongue swiped up one lip and down the
other before plunging between them and tonguing the well of her pussy. He
moaned, the deep rumble of it vibrating through her. “I could eat you all day.
But I won’t. I can’t. Because if I don’t get inside that tight little pussy in
a minute I’m going to fucking explode.” He spread her lips apart and blew warm
air on her clitoris.
trickled down her inner thigh. She was so wet. Wetter than she’d ever been. And
she hadn’t even come yet.
“But first, I
need to hear you scream,” he said just before his lips descended over the pearl
of her clit.
