Who can resist a sexy, swashbuckling buccaneer? Not me, that’s for sure. Totally Bound’s Jolly Rogered collection went on general release yesterday, so today I’m sharing a sexy moment from my short story, Right of Salvage.
Smiling to himself, he leaned in to murmur into the delicate shell of her ear, “I know you’re awake, Mrs Browne, but if you prefer to pretend otherwise I will not press the matter tonight. In the future, I will demand honesty from you, and you will be punished if I find myself less than satisfied on that score.”
The sharp intake of her breath at his softly whispered threat—or promise—left him in no doubt that she was listening to him. Good, he had more to impart, and would start by attempting to forge a delicate blend of reassurance whilst also indicating to her what her new situation was – and what she might expect from it.
“You are quite safe here, Jane, only myself and Billy will enter this cabin, you will not be disturbed. The bed is yours for this night, though from tomorrow you and I will share it. Your body is mine to take now, Jane, but I will not force the issue with you – I hope I won’t have to. I want your willing surrender, and I intend to have it.” He paused, then, “I will fuck you, because you will ask me to.”
Here’s the blurb:
He pulled her from the sea, breathed life back into her, and now she belongs to him. By right of salvage.
A passenger on a merchant ship carrying her husband’s cargo between the New World and Portsmouth, Jane Browne is unprepared for the devastating attraction she feels towards the fierce pirate who decides to relieve her husband of his goods. And his wife. Hurled into the sea by her violent husband in an act of spiteful, jealous revenge, Jane is rescued by the handsome pirate captain, who declares that she is now his property.
Jane has no choice but to accompany Captain Rob Hawke. He has her installed on his ship and in his bed. Now he demands her total obedience and her willing submission. Frightened and alone, Jane nevertheless responds quickly to her pirate rescuer’s delicate seduction, as he draws her effortlessly into his world of pleasure tinged with pain. Having sampled what he can provide, Rob offers Jane a choice. Will she opt to accept her freedom, or remain with Rob as his willing submissive?
When Rob’s past and Jane’s jealous husband catch up with them again, can they find a new future—together?
