That moment when you realize you are owned…

‘Three vignettes, The Edge, Bad Girl, and Breathless focus on control. Can Abby be taken to the edge of pleasure and not cross over? She wants to obey and to hold on. But can she? And what will happen to her if she can't?

Holding on has never felt so good...’

That’s a little from the back cover copy of Coming, Ready or Not! When the story opens, Abby is doing everything she can not to come until Will gives her permission. She’s trying to think about what to have for dinner, or what if they paint the hall, even mentally pairing and folding socks - all in an effort not to think about what Will is doing to her.

I wanted to show the relationship between the two of them, the teasing and the laughter as well as the dominance and submission, and I also wanted to explore what it was like in the early stages of a Master/slave relationship to find yourself suddenly realizing as the slave that your body isn’t your own any more, that so much isn’t up to you; that even something as basic as when (or if) you get to orgasm isn’t your decision. That you are owned.

That’s a very powerful moment, a huge realization and it’s one that Abby faces in the book. I think it’s one of those moments that you really can’t prepare for. No matter how much you think you want to be a slave, no matter how much reading and thinking and talking to your dominant you’ve done, it’s always going to be one of those things were you just don’t know exactly how you’re going to feel until it happens. Here’s how it is for Abby:

I lie in bed, my clit burning to be touched. I explore the unfamiliar metal of the chastity belt, running my fingers over the metal between my legs, which has already warmed to match the heat of my skin. I test the edges of the belt, trying to see if there is any way I could touch myself, not because I would dare to disobey you, not now, but because I need to feel that I am under your control. I need to feel that there is nothing I can do, even though knowing that makes this worse. I am excited by your dominance of me. I am more aroused than I have ever been and there really is nothing I can do about it. If ever I felt like your slave, it is now.

I don’t know how long I lie there, body buzzing, clit aching; going over in my mind all those things you did and said tonight.

Eventually I hear your footsteps coming up the stairs and then your weight on the bed as you climb under the covers.

“Still awake?”

“Yes, Sir.”

You put your arm around me and draw me close, dropping a kiss on my forehead.

“Is that poor little clit begging to be touched?”

“Yes, Sir. Oh, Sir, it burns. I can’t stand it.”

“Should have thought of that before. Good night.”

You turn over and settle onto your pillows. A short while later I hear your breathing change and know that you are sleep.

I sleep fitfully, waking up throughout the night; mind still sorting over the evening’s events. This is hard. I knew that not all of this would be easy when we started this journey together, but I don’t think I was prepared for this. My body really is not mine any more. I can ask and beg and plead all I like but the final decision on what happens is yours. It always was, I know, but this really brings it home to me.

Have you ever had one of those moments?

My bio:

When not writing about delicious, hot male dominants and the female subs who love them, I’m usually doing something craft-like, reading, baking, eating the results of said baking, and attempting to satisfy the demands of His High and Mighty Dominance (the cat!).

My first story, Imagine, was published with Silver Moon Books last year and Coming, Ready or Not is my first solo book. The Journal, co-written with Domitri Xavier, is out now and we are working on Shreds, the next book in the series about a beautiful red silk dress being torn and cut off very slowly...
