Taking Eve

TAKING EVE

 by Tina Donahue

taking-eve-2-copy (2)

 A willing slave to possession, punishment, pleasure…

Dreams of a manor where submission and dominance once ruled draws Faith to hypnotherapist Colin Danes. Potently virile, he looks remarkably like her most cherished master from a past life. Desire smolders in his eyes, proving he’s never forgotten her.

Their carnal dance continues in the present and leads to their past when she was known as Eve. Through hypnotherapy, Colin brings her back to the Victorian era, a hidden estate where she eagerly submits to whatever he and her other noble masters crave. The exquisite discipline of the strap. Being bid on and mounted each night. Displayed and used for the enjoyment of all.

Most will take her. One will try to imprison her. Only he will be her true master in that life and this.

 Excerpt

Taking her arm, Spencer brought Eve to the table so the mirror caught her in profile. He removed her bands and chains, tossing them aside. The fetters clinked against the snowy marble floor. He pulled off her fur boots, leaving her with nothing except the white satin ribbon.

“Bend over the table,” he ordered. He took off his derby and shrugged out of his greatcoat, putting both near the lone chair. “Spread your legs wide and present—“

“She’s not to be harmed,” Anthony interrupted.

Eve looked from man to man, feeling their struggle for power, Anthony’s indignation that he wasn’t in charge of her.

“No, my lord.” Spencer spoke as dismissively as he had earlier. “However, I have to examine and prepare her for tonight’s event, the same as I’ve done in the past with all the others. You’re well aware of that—are you not, my lord?”

Anthony clenched his jaw.

“Perhaps his Lordship would care to announce the girl’s arrival to the rest,” Spencer said. “Then await our entrance as he’s done before.”

Anthony seemed ready to argue the point, but didn’t. He left the room, slamming the door.

The thunderous sound had barely died out when Spencer edged close, his size and heat intimidating Eve, but also stirring something within her. A desire for a firm hand, a strict taskmaster.

Carefully, Spencer brushed Eve’s hair aside, his fingertips lingering on her shoulder. His touch light. Pleasant. Her breathing picked up. She waited for more. He leaned down, his cheek close to hers, his powerful body clearly restrained, his scent one of soap, wool, leather.

“Do as I ordered,” he whispered. “Be quick about it.”

She had no choice. Eve knew she wanted none. Unnerved, she obeyed, palms on the table, nipples touching the polished surface, legs parted widely, ass lifted.

Her position was deliberately revealing, meant to show Spencer both of her openings.

Eve lowered her face.

“No,” Spencer said. “Look at yourself and me in the glass. Watch what I do to you…what you can’t stop.”

Heat stung Eve’s cheeks. She turned to her reflection, seeing a face she scarcely recognized, one feverish with excitement and lust. Her hair was a black cloud drifting over her naked shoulders.

With his hands on his narrow hips, Spencer regarded her naked ass as a lord might—arrogant and unhurried—his pace telling her what she already knew. He ruled as all men did. As a woman, she yielded. Even to him.

Eve’s cunt grew damp with wanting.

He finally moved to the other side of the table, his stiffened shaft straining against his trousers. His arousal filling Eve with a curious combination of excitement and dread.

Would he take her before her other Masters did?

Would he whip her?

He returned to his original spot, a roguish look on his face. “Wider,” he ordered.

She spread her legs even more.

“Arch your back. Present your lovely arse to me.”

Eve strained to meet his demands, her body obedient even as her mind rebelled. She was more fully exposed to him than she’d ever been to Anthony.

A faint smile touched Spencer’s mouth. Minutes passed as he studied her scandalous pose.

Her skin reddened from the fire’s warmth and the turmoil building within her.

He dropped to one knee for a better look at her cunt and anus. His breath skimmed her thigh.

A low moan caught in Eve’s throat. She tried to swallow but couldn’t. She saw his arousal…and her own.

“You’re quite wet,” he murmured.

Harley’s, Friday 13th & Full Moon

The combination of the two could be alarming, right? I know my morning has had it’s challenges so far.

I totally forgot today is Port Dover ride day in Ontario. That’s when thousands of bikers descend on this little Ontario town. It all started back in 1971 and to learn more, click on the link for more info and a whack of photo’s.

As I write this, I hear the roar of Harley’s on the road. It is a sight to behold for sure.

This morning at Tim Horton’s in Guelph, a whole pack of bikers from local club called Ghost Riders where fueling up with coffee and treats. The woman below caught my eye when she came into the coffee shop. I knew I had to take her picture and do a blog. She was very nice and yes, that is her bike!

pd bikesAnd for the full moon? Do you have trouble sleeping with it? Or do you find people around you edgier, moody, or generally freaks? I don’t have any handy moon shots, and most of the time they never turn out anyway. So instead here’s a sunset shot from St. Croix.

JB looked toward the door as everyone else did. Taio stood at the entrance, with Eva on one arm and a taller female who looked just like him on the other. He waited as everyone rose to their feet.
“That’s his mother, Queen Fainia Xochis of Drazlan,” Lo’Ren said from the seat next to him. “It’s customary for you to stand when she enters the room.”
“I’ve already pissed him off today, no need to do it again if it’s not totally necessary.” JB stood.
Taio proceeded through the door, followed by three other females. JB immediately found himself staring at one in particular.
Her head was cast down slightly, her face obscured by waves and waves of jet-black hair that brushed the swell of her round butt. She wore a pale-purple form-fitting dress. The floor-length gown had designs made of colored crystals. Her skin was the same color as Taio’s, but different. It seemed to glow. Her build was tall and slender with a hint of curves where they were needed most.
She turned her head.
He caught his breath.
Beautiful.
As her lavender eyes locked on Lo’Ren, he willed her to look his way. Her features were sharp and foreign, but beautiful in every way. Her cheekbones were high and defined. Her lips were full and pink. She had a look of longing in her eyes and he wanted to know why.
No, he needed to know why.
Was she upset?
Who had taken the joy away from such a perfect female?
Look at me. I want to know you.
“Uh, unless you’re inviting Taio to kill you, I would sit down,” Lo’Ren said, tugging on his sleeve.
He glanced around to find he was the only one still standing. JB sat but kept his eyes on the female across the room. “Why would he kill me? She’s not human.”
“She’s his younger sister, Princess Saia.” Lo’Ren popped a piece of meat in her mouth and chewed. “Look the other way, human.”
That information alone should have been enough to make him turn his head and focus his attention on something else, but he couldn’t.
Princess Saia.
Rasha grabbed Saia in a bear hug and lifted her from her feet. JB watched, waiting for her to turn his way. His heart thumped. He wanted to go to her, meet her.
She was his.
He shook his head, trying to dislodge the misplaced thought.
Where the hell did that come from?
Then she turned toward him. Their eyes met.
And there it was.
His heart felt as though it was seized in a tight fist then dropped to the pit of his stomach.
“This is where you take my advice before you get into trouble.”
“She’s looking at me,” he whispered.
Every nerve in his body sprang to life. Her eyes were framed in the heaviest lashes he’d ever seen. And when she blinked, they looked like wings of butterflies.
He sighed and felt as if his body had melted into the chair.
Lo’Ren groaned. “Taio will kill you.”
“I don’t care.” He couldn’t drag his gaze away. A small smile graced beautiful full lips. Lips he wanted to claim for his own. From the side, her face had appeared long, but no, it was round and soft. Her nose was perky and petite. “Princess Saia,” JB said breathlessly.
Lo’Ren shook her head. “I shouldn’t have told you her name. I don’t want any part of this.”
“I would have found out anyway.” Nothing could have stopped him from knowing her name.
Lo’Ren blew out a heavy breath. “Did I mention that she’s Taio’s only sister?”
