Here’s a little excerpt from my story Under his Protection to whet your appetite. It’s the moment Lukas first spots Jacqui at the club 🙂
One long blink later confirmed what he already knew. The newbie dressed like any Dom’s wet dream and his responsibility for the evening was none other than his Miss Goody Two-shoes neighbor. The damn woman had been on his mind ever since their earlier encounter. Dressed in that hideous onesie, which had made his fingers itch with the need to strip it off her to see what she was hiding underneath, her face bare of any make-up and her hair in delightful disarray, her untutored responses to him had left him with a boner that he’d needed to take care of in the shower.
One that was making a rapid re-appearance seeing her curves barely contained in that sinful corset. Her shoulder length brown hair framed her flushed face, and she looked…rattled—delightfully so. The Dom in him roared, even as the rational side of him doubted what he was seeing.
“Ah, Lukas, just the man. This is the new sub I was talking about. She’s all yours just as soon as I get to the bottom of this latest scheme my pet seems to have concocted.”
Lukas opened his mouth to query that, but held his tongue when Jacqui tensed, and Lauren looked guilty. Something was going on here, so crossing his arms over his chest, he leaned against the wall to observe.
“By all means, carry on then. Hello there, little dove. I sure wasn’t expecting to see you here.” Somehow he managed to sound bored as he said that.
Jacqui’s reaction was all he could have hoped it to be, because she startled, blushed the most endearing shade of red, and the sheer panic in her blue eyes made his inner Dom grin. He did like to rattle his subs, and keep them guessing.
Jake frowned looking between him and her. He raised an eyebrow in query, and Lukas shrugged his shoulders, while tapping the large paddle in his hand against his thigh. Jacqui jumped anew and he did it again, just to see her reaction.
Interesting for sure, because she didn’t seem able to drag her gaze away from the movement of the oblong object, which meant Lukas had to cross the distance to the table to satisfy his curiosity. He picked up her limit list and scanned down it. Well, that explained it, for sure. Little Miss Goody Two-shoes had a naughty side it seemed. And thank fuck for that, because this close to her the subtle scent she’d chosen to wear tonight wrapped itself around him. Fuck, he wanted her something bad, which meant he should probably take a step back and hand her over to someone else. However, the mere thought of any other Dom’s hands on the acres of creamy skin she was putting on show tonight made him want to punch something.
God only knew where that possessive streak had come from. Women like her usually made him run a mile. She was the type, who dreamt of happy ever after, and that was so not him. Still, she was here, looking for some adventure, it seemed, and he could certainly provide her with that.
“Lukas, do you know my pet’s friend?”
Jake’s question brought his attention back to him, and he schooled his expression into one of careful neutrality.
“We’ve met. She’s my neighbor.”
Lukas knew the minute the penny dropped, because amusement flared briefly in the older man’s eyes.
Damn that Jake. He’s enjoying this far too much.
“Yeah, that one.” His grunted acknowledgment meant that he found himself at the receiving end of several wide-eyed female stares. Lauren, Mimi, and most importantly Jacqui were all looking at him as though he held the answers to the location of the freaking Holy Grail or something.
Mimi in particular narrowed her eyes, and he could almost see the wheels turning in her brain. To be fair, Mimi knew him better than most. They’d scened together more than once, and he liked her well enough, not least, because she never expected more than he’d been willing to give. Lukas had never wanted his own submissive, at least not until Jake had settled down with Lauren.
Jake gave a short laugh, which shook Lukas out of those maudlin thoughts. Really, though, what was wrong with him today? First the altercation with Rosalee, who wouldn’t take no for an answer—another reason why he should run the other way and not even entertain the idea of taking Jacqui under his wing—even if it was just for tonight. After all, Rosalee had been the last newbie he’d agreed to train, and the damn woman couldn’t accept that once training was over and done with, she wasn’t going to be collared by him. The mere thought made him break out in a cold sweat.
He sure as fuck didn’t want that commitment on his hands.
“Did you know about this?” Jake addressed a dumbstruck Lauren, and her blonde hair whipped around her face with the force of her denial.
“No, Sir I swear, I didn’t. I just meant to give her a shake-up, so I arranged this as a surprise. It’s her birthday, after all, and…” Her voice trailed off and she anxiously bit her lip, when Jake shook his head at her.
“I’m disappointed in you, pet. You told me this was all arranged and that your friend expressed an interest in being at the club. Were you lying to me?”
Lauren’s expressive eyes filled with tears. Lukas was half expecting her to deny the accusation, but she nodded instead.
“I’m sorry, Sir.”
Jake’s heavy sigh spoke volumes and Lukas pinched the bridge of his nose. This, right here, was why he didn’t do relationships.
“Why?” Jake asked and Lauren flinched.
“I don’t know. I should have told you, but I thought you might not agree to sponsor her had you known, and I guess, I thought she would say no, if I gave her an out, and I’m sorry.”
“I see. Too bad, you’ll never know if I would have agreed to it, will you now, Lauren?”
Lauren flinched at the use of her name, and Lukas shook his head. That woman would have one hell of a sore ass soon, and not in the good way. Jake was furious. The one thing that his friend couldn’t stand was a liar. After all, his ex-wife had done nothing but lied to him, and unwittingly Lauren had opened up a whole can of whoop ass on her head by her actions. What had the silly woman been thinking?
“I’m so sorry, Sir. I wasn’t thinking. Please punish me as you see fit.”
Jake took a step away from her, and shook his head.
“It is not just me you need to apologize to, is it?”
Lauren shook her head, and fixing her tearstained eyes on Lukas murmured another apology.
“I’m sorry Master Lukas. I didn’t know you were her neighbor, let alone that one.”
Jacqui gave a strangled groan, and looked to all intents and purposes as though she wanted the ground to swallow her whole, and he exchanged a glance with Jake. At his infinitesimal nod, Lukas stepped up to Lauren and grasped her chin to ensure she kept looking at him.
“What do you mean by that neighbor?”
“She means nothing. Jesus, let her go, will you. This is insane, I—” Jacqui’s words came to an abrupt stop when he let go of her friend and approached her.
“You what, little dove?” he asked, and she audibly swallowed when he slapped the paddle into his free hand. “If you’d like to explain why you’re here, then please do so.”
He grinned when she blushed, pulled her shoulders back, and then fixed her expressive eyes just below his collarbone. It confirmed his earlier suspicions. Little Miss Goody Two-shoes was a natural submissive, and that thought made his cock harden further.
“It’s true she jumped this on me as a surprise, but I wouldn’t have come, had I not…well, I…”
Lukas dropped the paddle to let it hang off his wrist, and grasping her chin with his free hand, nudged it up until she had no choice but to look at him.
“Had you not what, little dove?”
He gentled his hold on her when she started to tremble, and giving into the instinct to sample her soft flesh, he ran his thumb slowly over her plump lips. Her breathing sped up, and her mouth parted slightly under the insistent strokes of his digit.
“Had I not wanted to come here. It is my birthday, and I’ve always been curious about…well about…” She didn’t seem capable of continuing, and taking pity on her, he smiled.
“Happy birthday, little dove.”
She blinked, and pulled a shuddering breath into her lungs when he released her.
“So, let me guess, you would like a birthday spanking?”
Stay naughty now, folks!
