Taking Eve

TAKING EVE

 by Tina Donahue

 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.

Dare to Play?

Have you ever fallen to your knees for a man? Get a little taste of what it could be like with Eden Bradley’s newest release Breaking Skye. I met Eden last year before RWA and was thrilled when she came to our Passionate Ink party as one of our speakers. She’s very knowledgeable and makes you want to know just a little bit more.

I’m thrilled she is visiting us and talking about Breaking Skye. Can’t wait to read it myself. Eden has a little challenge for ya’ll, are you up to it for a chance to win some of her fabulous books? I dare you.

Thanks for coming to play with us, Eden.

I’m so excited to be here today to talk about my hot and romantic BDSM story BREAKING SKYE. I really love this story. I know—we authors are supposed to love all our books, and we do, but some just stand out. I think in this case it’s the hero.

Adam Dunne is one of those men who can make you want to drop to your knees from across a room. He’s gorgeous, sophisticated, and he absolutely reeks Dominant! No one could possibly say no to this man. But he’s very careful with his responsibilities—and if he’s taken you down to your knees, his responsibility is you—so you know you’ll never come to any harm in his hands. *girlish sigh*

Because after all, having him ‘hurt’ you and ‘harm’ you are two different things. Sometimes the hurt is fun…like a nice little spanking…flung across his lap, one of his strong hands in your hair, pulling tight, making you want to be right there doing exactly this. Making you need to be…oh, yes, that’s Adam. My kinda guy.

And he’s Skye’s kinda guy, too. Oh, she fights it a bit—it’s in her nature. But watching her struggle is one the things that captures Adam’s attention, fascinates him, until he can’t do anything but have her.

~~~~~~~~~~

When power play becomes more than just a game…

BDSM. Submission. Spanking…These are the things Skye has always craved, the desires she has never allowed herself to explore. Until now. She thought she was looking for a single experience, something to purge these strange yearnings from her system. Instead she finds a man whose absolute authority and stunning good looks leave her breathless, willing to do anything he asks of her. But only for one night…

Adam has other ideas. Skye could be the perfect submissive once he’s done training her—for someone else. For him, that’s always the way it’s been. But Skye is different. Enticing. Intoxicating. Irresistible. Soon all he can think of is breaking Skye—and keeping her for himself.

~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:

This could not be him.

This man… he could not be the man who would strip her bare, put her on her knees and do unspeakable things to her. Lovely, wicked things she had only ever imagined in the darkest corners of her mind. He was too perfect for the role, as if he’d stepped out of her fantasies. But she knew the moment he stepped into the café and she caught the first stunning glimpse of his face that he was the man she was there to meet.

When she’d posted her ad on the bondage.com website her cousin Esme had told her about, she’d imagined finding a man with an air of command. A man who lived by the ‘Safe, Sane and Consensual’ credo. A man who could guide her through this experience with practiced, capable hands. He was all of those things, she knew, from their two weeks of communicating via email.

Confident. Commanding. Intelligent. Kinky. And he came with the best possible references from others who knew him in the kink community. He had it all, on paper. And in person…he was almost too beautiful to be real. Like some fallen angel with his evil-looking goatee, his sharply-honed bone structure, the way his dark hair, worn a little too long, fell into his eyes. She watched as he approached, broad shoulders shrugging their way out of his black wool coat. Adam Dunne had an enormous, palpable presence that mirrored his size—she swore she could feel it emanating from him.

Power. That’s what it was. Power and a stark male beauty that made her breath catch.

Pull yourself together. He’s just a man.

Except that he was so much more. She knew it in that very first electric instant.

She took in a breath of the coffee-scented air and forced her fluttering pulse to calm as she pushed her long hair from her cheek.

He stepped closer and as he pulled his coat off she saw him shiver a bit at the damp San Francisco cold. Perhaps he was human after all.

He was beautifully dressed in a way that seemed almost European to her: black slacks that looked as if they’d been custom-made, a thin, dark wool sweater, a gray scarf looped casually around his neck.

He spoke her name in a low voice that felt like a caress. “Skye.”

Certainty in his voice. She had a feeling this man never doubted himself. That no one ever doubted him. A Dominant through and through. What had she heard this kind of man called in her research on the Internet? A ‘true Dominant’?

He smiled crookedly, just a small quirking at one corner of his mouth. There was a scar on his lush lower lip, which made her want to reach out and touch it, just trace it with her fingertips.

Of course, she would never do such a thing. Definitely not with a man like him.

“You are Skye?”

She curled her fingers around the handle of her tea mug as she looked up into eyes that were a dark, dusky blue framed in thick lashes. “What? Yes. You must be Adam.”

He nodded, took her free hand as he slid into the chair across from hers. He held on a few moments too long, the lambent heat of his touch making her wonder if she wanted him to let go. Making her want to yank her hand back to safety at the same time.

She had never in her life thought herself to be in over her head with any man. Until now…
