Rawhide, Book 9

Their passion is hot enough to set fire to the walls of Rawhide…

After years as a sub, Dani Maguire is stunned to realize her desires lie in another direction—as a Domme. One night with the perfect sub is all she asked for, but the tall blond Adonis chained before her is holding back and stirring emotions that could threaten her new role.

Ethan Corelli has always kept his public and private life separate. After all, no one wants a highly sought after attorney who hands over control to a woman, to be punished in a variety of erotic ways. But one flick of his novice Mistress’ whip could change his mind.

“Permission to speak, Mistress?” Ethan asked.

She nodded. “Of course.”

“Mistress G told me you’ve been a submissive for some time now.” His deep voice stroked over her.

“Yes.” She cleared her throat, aware that G was carefully watching the interplay between them. “I’ve had a number of successful relationships.”

A smile played over his lips. “Would I be out of line if I asked what made you want to change roles?”

She knew that was a bold question for a sub to ask, but she chose to answer him. He of all people had the right to know.

“Not at all.” She took a sip of her drink. “For some time, I’ve been convinced I wanted much more out of my relationships. Something that gave me deeper satisfaction. I wanted to be the one in control, managing the pleasure for both myself and my partners. When I began to resent the dominance of my last partner, I knew it was time to explore this other side of myself.” She studied his face, saw the question barely concealed in his eyes. “I know all the rules, Ethan. I have a good reputation in the community. You can trust me. I want you to believe I will never betray that trust in any way.”

The hazel eyes darkened to a soft gray. “Then I will do my best to make the evening a fulfilling one for you.”
