No one would understand that my submission empowered me, that I felt stronger kneeling at Gabrielís feet than I ever had standing at Paulís side.
Faye Austin seems to have it all–a fulfilling career, a successful husband, a beautiful home. But appearances can be deceptive and sometimes Faye canít help thinking sheís living the wrong life. A lifetime of being compared to her beautiful younger sister, Ginny, has left her feeling second best, and a chance discovery while looking at her husbandís laptop has led her to realize that her marriage is not all it seems.
Then she meets the handsome Gabriel Scott, a man who likes to play sexual games of power and control, and suddenly everything makes sense. Gabrielís natural dominance is so compelling that Faye feels her own submissiveness awakening in response, a reaction that both horrifies and excites her. She works with victims of domestic abuse and is adamant that no man will ever tell her what to do. But thereís something about Gabriel that draws her in and gives her a glimpse of who she really wants to be.
Can Gabriel give her what she needs? Or will Ginny get there first?


Gabriel came to stand before me. ìRelax,î he said softly. ìIíll take good care of you.î

Slowly, he unbuttoned my dress and slipped it off my shoulders, his dark, hypnotizing eyes never leaving mine, until I stood before him in nothing but my underwear and shoes.

He gave a slow, sexy smile. ìVery nice.î He ran his thumbs over my breasts through the lace of my bra and pinched my nipples between his thumb and forefinger. ìThis is beautiful, but it needs to come off.î

He reached behind me, and, after unhooking the clasp, he slipped my bra down my shoulders and let it drop to the floor, then he unknotted his tie and eased it out from under his collar. He held it between his hands as I watched, mesmerized.

ìTurn around and put your hands together behind your back,î he ordered.

I turned and clasped my fingers together, then he wrapped his tie several times around my wrists and drew it tight. He threaded one hand in my hair and pulled my head sideways so my neck was exposed to him, and I closed my eyes in ecstasy as he nipped at my earlobe.

ìIf you struggle,î he murmured in my ear, ìit will get tighter and youíll end up with marks on your wrists, so be a good girl and keep still for your Master.î

ìYes, Sir,î I whispered.

Still holding my hair, he turned me back to face him. ìNow that is a magnificent sight,î he said, ìmy beautiful submissive bound and obedient for her Master.î

His words sent a thrill coursing through my body.

ìIím going to do whatever I please to you tonight,î he said, ìbut I want you to think of a word to use if it gets too much for you. Any word will do.î He paused, and his eyes bored into mine. ìExcept the word no. You will never say no to your Master.î

I cast about me for a word I would remember, and my gaze fell on the dress now pooled at my feet. ìVelvet,î I said.

ìVelvet, then. I promise you, Faye, the next time you say velvet, Iíll stop whatever Iím doing. Do you trust me, sweetheart?î

ìI do.î

ìGood. Now, I want you to keep very still for me. Donít respond until I tell you to.î

He slipped off his jacket, taking something from his pocket and unbuttoned his shirt, exposing a broad, tan chest. A T-shape of dark hair ran from between his pectorals to vanish teasingly beneath his waistband, drawing my gaze downward over his lean stomach and well-defined abs. Fully dressed, Gabriel had the air of a sophisticated gentleman. Half-naked, the untamed man beneath was revealed. He stepped in close to me until we were touching, and my breath caught at the sensation of warm skin on skin. Then he opened his hand and showed me what was insideótwo tiny metal clamps, tipped with rubber and joined with a silver chain.

I whimpered as he clamped them onto my nipples. The clamps pinched more cruelly than his fingers had, but somehow the pain quickly became pleasure.

ìShh,î he said, brushing his lips against mine. He knelt and slipped off my sandals. Still kneeling, he spread my legs and, hooking two fingers inside the leg of my panties, he pulled them aside and kissed the crease at the top of my inner thigh.

The backs of his fingers were pressing against my clitoris, and despite what heíd said, I just couldnít help but try and push against his hand.

Gabriel stood up and stepped back from me. ìWhat have you been told?î

ìNot to respond, Sir,î I mumbled, dropping my gaze to my feet.

ìLook at me,î he commanded. I met his eyes. His expression was stern. ìYouíve disobeyed me, Faye.î

ìIím sorry, Sir.î My face flushed with embarrassment, or maybe it was excitement. This was what had attracted me to him, after all. This air of dark severity, this sense of implacable authority.

ìWhenever you disobey your Master, youíll be punished,î he said. His tone was gentle, almost sympathetic, but relentless nonetheless.

I watched with stunned fascination as he unbuckled his belt and eased it out from the loops on his trousers, folded it in two and smacked it across one palm. At the sound of the leather slapping against his hand, my groin tightened, then Gabriel took hold of my upper arm and pulled me toward the bed. So many conflicting emotions raced through my headóexcitement, shame, fear, acceptance. I couldnít tell which the dominant one was. Maybe it was some new emotion that was a mixture of all four.
