The heartbreak of my past has begun to heal.
After the death of my parents and a divorce, I struggled in the darkness. Craving a new life, I shed the inhibitions that have sequestered my deepest desires.
I seek an awakening.
The path leads me to Reign and into the hands of BDSM club owner Caleb Dunn. Despite his reluctance, Caleb agrees to mentor me, quickly becoming a fixture in my life.
He is a beacon illuminating my way....
We fight to keep our relationship within the walls of Reign, but the boundaries blur. The passionate moments weaving through our lives are undermined by his stoicism. But despite the wounds created by the ebb and flow of his devotion, I open myself to Caleb, allowing him to push the limits of my body and my mind...
...as I reach for the light.
Can I give him my heart and soul? Will I ever receive the same from him in return? Our future is uncertain, but one fact remains true…to Caleb, I will be forever tied.
Here is a snippet of Tied for you to enjoy. This scene takes place after Reagan and Caleb have met for the first time to negotiate a D/s contract. After Reagan leaves, Caleb’s reinforcements waste no time in wanting to know the score. Who needs enemies with friends like these? I hope you enjoy Mr. Dunn and his crew.
They circle like vultures before I can even get back to my chair.
“Well?” Blake hands me a scotch. “What’s the verdict?”
I watch Skyler gracefully take Reagan’s chair. “Do you like her?”
She’s funny, she knows baseball, and she’s got a smile brighter than the sun. “She has potential.”
“Caleb,” she admonishes, “you can come up with something better than that.” Skyler leans forward, not letting me off the hook. “For the record, I think she’s adorable and you two would look very nice together.”
“Hey, matchmaker,” Nick barks, “give the man time to breathe.” He slugs down the remainder of his beer, slamming it on the table. “That being said, dude, cut her loose now if you think she’s going to be a problem.”
The dialogue between Nick and Skyler is easily ignored as the gears turn. She’s a problem. Since Cassandra, my desire to participate in anything more than random hookups has been nil. Until Reagan Langley waltzed into my office with her curiosity and her willingness and her sexy-as-fuck dress that clung to every curve tonight. Until I had to look over this list of limits and realized how beautifully matched we could be. For a moment, I was excited about the possibility of starting a new relationship, but then the reality set in. You can’t do permanent. It doesn’t work out for you, Dunn.
I realize a little too late, they are all staring at me. “I’ll train her.”
Blake zeros in on me. “You like her already.”
“She’s sweet; I won’t deny that.” She’s perfection. Perfection that I will craft for another lucky bastard. I would only disappoint her in the long run.
“You’re going to have a hard time not getting emotional with her, Caleb. You have a really big heart. She seems lovely.” Skyler’s words are meant to console my fears; she knows me too well.
“Look, man.” Nick immediately counters Skyler’s stance. “If this is something you want to do, you need to keep a tight leash on her and yourself.”
He’s right. I’ve already talked to Reagan about the boundaries of our relationship. They are clear. They don’t move. Immobilized within the confines of our roles in the contract.
“I’ll write the negotiation tight. I’ll train her and, when the time is right, I’ll help her find a Dom if that what she wants.”
Blake snickers. “You talk such a good game, man. I saw you checking her out when she got up from the table.”
The image of Reagan’s body smoothly moving across the open patio was a breathtaking sight. The setting sun make her hair shine, the glimpse of red showing themselves against deep brown. The vision of her body, its movement, being mine even for a brief period of time was enough to spark a wicked hard-on. When she poured my drink, the tendrils of her submissive nature showing themselves, I nearly ravaged her.
“I won’t deny she’s beautiful, but we’re staying professional.”
“You’re fucked, boss.” Blake raises his glass to me, that stupid grin on his face shouting that he knows Reagan Langley has piqued my interest.
