Genre ~ M/M Erotic BDSM Romance

Synopsis

Tatum Steele is a proficient lawyer and sexual Dominant desperately in need of a legal assistant. Christopher Waters is a recent graduate who is looking for work, and he has secret fantasies of being bound by his lover.

Both men feel heat from instant attraction when they meet for an interview, but Chris questions his feelings because he has a boyfriend, one he has been with for years. So how is it that Tatum makes him doubt everything he has? After Christopher’s boyfriend viciously betrays him, he flees to the firm and Tatum takes him away to regroup. A relationship quickly forms when Chris expresses interest in BDSM. It’s difficult for Christopher to learn trust, but after Tatum willingly submits himself to Chris for a night, he knows that he will give the man anything he asks for. After their first official scene at Steel Cuffs, Tatum’s favorite BDSM club, Tatum and Chris realize that what they have is more than just sex—it’s love. Only one thing stands in their way, something that could destroy everything they have built together. Tatum’s family has never approved of his sexual orientation, and they are determined to never allow a public relationship to tarnish their family name. Tatum has to risk everything in order to save his boy from death.

Excerpt

“But I don’t want to be hit,” Chris pointed out, chewing thoughtfully on his food. “I don’t like pain, and that’s what dominance and submission are about, right?”

“Is that still what you think?” Tatum stalked around the counter that separated the kitchenette from the open room. Like a lion, he prowled toward his prey—Chris.

“Uh…yes?” Chris was staring at him, eyes large and round. His breathing had quickened, but the boy wasn’t afraid; he was right on the line between fear and anticipation that, as Dom, was exactly where he wanted his boy to be.

He halted before Chris, leaning over him to place his hands on the table, effectively caging the boy. Chris’ cheeks were flushed. “You’re wrong,” he whispered in Chris’ ear. “Domination is looking down at my boy and seeing his heart pound in his neck”—he trailed a finger down his boy’s carotid artery, feeling his heart race—“seeing the anticipation mixed with confusion and just a little fear, knowing that my boy trusts me enough to take care of him without hurting him or taking him past what he can take. Feeling his breathing sharpen.” He placed his hand down over Chris’ chest, which rose and fell rapidly. “Domination is being in control of your every thought and emotion, sometimes without having to say a word, Chris. Domination is giving my boy a certain look and him dropping to his knees. Domination is all about control—the control you give me, not what I take—and using that control to do what is best for you. Pain has nothing to do with it.”

Tatum lazily drew his lips down Christopher’s jawline until he reached the boy’s mouth. He reveled in the feel of the soft, warm pants against his lips. Slowly, so Chris could pull away if he wanted to, Tatum pressed his lips against Chris’. His boy stiffened, likely from shock because after a brief moment he was opening his mouth. Surrendering. God, yes. Tatum dove in eagerly, devouring his boy’s mouth with abandon. Christopher’s mouth was warm and tantalizing. He explored him thoroughly, his own breath coming out harshly as his body warmed and his cock filled. It throbbed against his briefs, demanding to be released and used.

But he couldn’t do that yet. Instead, he pushed deeper into Chris’ mouth, twining their tongues together and just enjoying the sensations of only being connected by their lips and tongues. Tatum didn’t need to pin Chris down to fucking enjoy him. This was a totally different kind of domination, one that Chris needed to understand. He kept his boy in place by his mouth alone, and without speaking a word.

God knew how much time had passed. The lesson had been learned, he was sure, but Christopher’s warmth and submission were addicting, and Tatum found it damn near impossible to break away. But break away he did, eventually. He gave a final swipe of his tongue across Chris’ bottom lip as he drew away, his eyes partially lidded, his cock pounding with need.

This is domination,” he rasped, his voice hoarse with arousal. “Do you see?”

“Yes,” Chris mumbled. His boy’s head had fallen back, his face red and his breathing erratic. “God…yes.”

Meet Ruby MacIntyre

10471326_1032717790076446_3334517941735823818_nRuby MacIntyre was born and raised in Kansas and has always been an avid reader. It’s beyond a mere hobby or escape from reality; it’s her passion. Because of her love for reading, writing her own stories—giving voices and happy endings to the people that live in her head—was only natural. She may be relatively new to the gay romance genre, but once Ruby found it, she never looked back. Now it’s all she reads (the hotter, the better!), and she is quite content with the sexy men that dwell in her head, clamoring for her attention. When Ruby’s not reading, she’s writing, and vice-versa. Books have always been her life and likely always will be.

In the rare occasions Ruby isn’t working, reading, or writing, she loves to play or cuddle with her dog and cat, watch a movie, or hang with family. She loves books (duh), pretty notebooks, snowflakes, and the color yellow.
