#SexySnippets from Auctioned to Protect (The Spectrum Auctions,2) @sirenbookstrand #bdsm

Happy Sunday, folks. It's been quite a week for me. Auctioned to Protect released and my life was taken over by one of those stories that comes out of nowhere, and demands to be written. My muse has a thing for Anthology calls, and this one was an Office romance antho, and well, we all like those, don't we.

Yesterday saw me hit submit on The Takeover. Time will tell if it's a good fit for the anthology, but I sure hope so...

*smiles and crosses fingers*

For today's snippet I'm giving you a glimpse into Mike's state of mind. He has just witnessed a public scene between his estranged sister and her Dom Slade, and Scarlett is ordering him to stay and talk to his sister...

This pint-sized woman was getting under his skin with astonishing speed, and he had no idea what to do about it. Normally speaking he’d run a mile, hide behind his off-putting persona, but there was no hiding from Scarlett, and in truth he didn’t want to. There was something freeing about giving up control, about her not giving him a choice but to acknowledge what was happening.

He raised his head, and Laura’s tearstained gaze connecting with his was like a physical punch to the gut. He’d let her down badly, and he was still letting her down by not accepting her choice to be with Slade. His usual refuge escaped him, as the anger he relied on to keep himself going, to stop himself from thinking about his failings, eluded him. There was only this uncomfortable feeling that made his chest tight and breathing difficult.


Oh, yes Scarlett is getting to him alright, and the conversation he is about to have with Laura is not an easy one for this tough guy!

[Siren Allure: Erotic Consensual BDSM Romance, voyeurism, shibari, cropping, knife play, sex toys, HEA]

Tough undercover cop Mike Anderson does not submit to anyone, let alone a pint-size bundle of curves with a Mistress complex, who stands for everything he despises about BDSM. Thrown into a world where the rules make no sense to him, he has to rely on his instincts, and they all scream one thing—submit to His Lady.

Scarlett Simpson is one of the most feared Mistresses at Club Spectrum, and she has a score to settle. Mike's atrocious behavior needs addressing. If only she wasn't so attracted to the big hunk of a man, and he didn't prove so utterly responsive. As she explores his boundaries through Shibari and knife play, Scarlett can't help but get emotionally involved.

Submission freely given is a gift she treasures, but can she trust Mike to stay around once the case is over? When danger comes knocking, will Mike be able to protect her, or will this end in tragedy?

Note: This book contains a heroine who is a domme.
