TAKING EVE by Tina Donahue
A willing slave to possession, punishment, pleasure…
Dreams of a manor where submission and dominance once ruled draws Faith to hypnotherapist Colin Danes. Potently virile, he looks remarkably like her most cherished master from a past life. Desire smolders in his eyes, proving he’s never forgotten her.
Their carnal dance continues in the present and leads to their past when she was known as Eve. Through hypnotherapy, Colin brings her back to the Victorian era, a hidden estate where she eagerly submits to whatever he and her other noble masters crave. The exquisite discipline of the strap. Being bid on and mounted each night. Displayed and used for the enjoyment of all.
Most will take her. One will try to imprison her. Only he will be her true master in that life and this.
Taking her arm, Spencer brought Eve to the table so the mirror caught her in profile. He removed her bands and chains, tossing them aside. The fetters clinked against the snowy marble floor. He pulled off her fur boots, leaving her with nothing except the white satin ribbon.
“Bend over the table,” he ordered. He took off his derby and shrugged out of his greatcoat, putting both near the lone chair. “Spread your legs wide and present—“
“She’s not to be harmed,” Anthony interrupted.
Eve looked from man to man, feeling their struggle for power, Anthony’s indignation that he wasn’t in charge of her.
“No, my lord.” Spencer spoke as dismissively as he had earlier. “However, I have to examine and prepare her for tonight’s event, the same as I’ve done in the past with all the others. You’re well aware of that—are you not, my lord?”
Anthony clenched his jaw.
“Perhaps his Lordship would care to announce the girl’s arrival to the rest,” Spencer said. “Then await our entrance as he’s done before.”
Anthony seemed ready to argue the point, but didn’t. He left the room, slamming the door.
The thunderous sound had barely died out when Spencer edged close, his size and heat intimidating Eve, but also stirring something within her. A desire for a firm hand, a strict taskmaster.
Carefully, Spencer brushed Eve’s hair aside, his fingertips lingering on her shoulder. His touch light. Pleasant. Her breathing picked up. She waited for more. He leaned down, his cheek close to hers, his powerful body clearly restrained, his scent one of soap, wool, leather.
“Do as I ordered,” he whispered. “Be quick about it.”
She had no choice. Eve knew she wanted none. Unnerved, she obeyed, palms on the table, nipples touching the polished surface, legs parted widely, ass lifted.
Her position was deliberately revealing, meant to show Spencer both of her openings.
Eve lowered her face.
“No,” Spencer said. “Look at yourself and me in the glass. Watch what I do to you…what you can’t stop.”
Heat stung Eve’s cheeks. She turned to her reflection, seeing a face she scarcely recognized, one feverish with excitement and lust. Her hair was a black cloud drifting over her naked shoulders.
With his hands on his narrow hips, Spencer regarded her naked ass as a lord might—arrogant and unhurried—his pace telling her what she already knew. He ruled as all men did. As a woman, she yielded. Even to him.
Eve’s cunt grew damp with wanting.
He finally moved to the other side of the table, his stiffened shaft straining against his trousers. His arousal filling Eve with a curious combination of excitement and dread.
Would he take her before her other Masters did?
Would he whip her?
He returned to his original spot, a roguish look on his face. “Wider,” he ordered.
She spread her legs even more.
“Arch your back. Present your lovely arse to me.”
Eve strained to meet his demands, her body obedient even as her mind rebelled. She was more fully exposed to him than she’d ever been to Anthony.
A faint smile touched Spencer’s mouth. Minutes passed as he studied her scandalous pose.
Her skin reddened from the fire’s warmth and the turmoil building within her.
He dropped to one knee for a better look at her cunt and anus. His breath skimmed her thigh.
A low moan caught in Eve’s throat. She tried to swallow but couldn’t. She saw his arousal…and her own.
“You’re quite wet,” he murmured.
