She is in capable hands or is she? #MidWeekTease #asmsg Scores

Happy Hump Day and welcome back to Mid-Week Tease hosted by the lovely Sandra Bunino in which we share teasers from our works-in-progress or published works.

This week I bring you more from Scores, my current WIP. This scene introduces Beatrice's story coming up later in the Passion Shields series.
As we already discovered from previous snippets, Beatrice is a bit of a hell-raiser. And it seems Benjamin has found the perfect person to babysit his sister while they travel to South Africa.

It is a first draft and very rough, so please forgive any errors.


Selina relaxed into her first class seat, Benjamin seated next to her on the flight to Johannesburg. Now that they were on their way to his home country, the apprehension about the trip had risen again and was threatening to give her a headache.
What would the reception be from Benjamin's family? She already knew his uncle was not happy that they were married. Although they hadn't spoken about the man since her husband had revealed his past to her, she couldn’t help the growing sense of doom pervading her mind.
Best not to think about it.
"Do you think Beatrice will be okay?" she asked absently.
"She will be now that she's in capable hands," Ben replied flicking through the in-flight magazine.
Benjamin had shocked both Selina and his sister yesterday when he'd invited Kenny Cruz over to their home. Kenny was a member of the Moss Star Security team. But Selina had first met him a year ago in Bar Atlantic as club owner. In certain circles he was known as Master K, a strict practitioner of BDSM and disciplinarian.
Benjamin was strict but Master K was a whole other level. The dark-skinned giant of a man's presence demanded obedience.  Selina didn't cower easily before men but she would have to admit that she would never want to test the man's patience. She'd watched him wield a whip and that was enough to give her cold sweats.
She remembered coming home from a quick trip down to the shops to find Kenny in their living room with Ben. She hadn't been expecting the man. But considering he was a part of Moss Star and a good friend of Ben, there seemed nothing unusual until Ben had invited Beatrice into the room and explained the reason for Kenny visit.
"But isn't Kenny a little bit of a drastic option. Christopher would've kept an eye on her."
"Yes, but she knows how to wrap Chris around her fingers. He spoils her like a kid sister. Beatrice needs a firm hand and Kenny won't tolerate any misbehaviour from her."
Selina gasped. "You gave him permission to discipline her?" Beatrice was the same person who went bright red at the mention of spanking. "Your sister is as vanilla as they come."
"In which case, she'll behave herself if she doesn't want to find herself across his knees," Ben replied, his eyes sparkling with amusement.

No matter what happens don't look back #MidWeekTease #asmsg Scores

Welcome back to Mid-Week Tease here at the Passion Shields Series. After the craziness of preparing my latest book for publication and all the promo work involved, I'm so glad to be back writing again.

And my characters are very pleased about that too, considering I left them hanging in the middle of a scene when I had to go off to edit another book. Poor Benjamin might be suffering from blue balls. LOL

Anyway, this week's teaser is from Scores and I'm sure the scene describes itself. Enjoy.


"You've been such a good girl, Beauty." He spoke in a low gravelly tone. "I'm so proud of all you've done, of your progress in the last three months."
He pulled the pin out of her hair, tossing it on the table. The mass of thick black curls tumbled around her shoulders and back. With his fingers, he combed the strands out, massaging her scalp gently as he went along.
Lust sparked to life in her belly.
"From the first time I saw you at Bar Atlantic, I knew you'd make a beautiful student." Warm, long fingers brushed her nape. Drawing in air into suddenly tight lungs, she let her lashes flutter shut.
"Tutoring you in the art of submission has been such a joy." The quality of his voice—so deep, seductive, intoxicating. At times like this, his South African drawl filtered through.
His left hand stroked her knee and lower thigh but never travelled to where she needed him most. The combination of his words and his touch kept her on edge. And she was supposed to keep still?
Oh God! She struggled to regulate her rapid, shallow breathing.
"Look at me," he whispered, warm air prickling her sensitive neck.
Her eyes flew open. Heat and openness gleamed in his grey eyes, snatching her breath away.
"Having you bend to my whim and knowing that you haven't lost the fire in your eyes, knowing that you've discovered an even greater zest for life makes all the ups and downs worthwhile."
Her heart swelled as she listened to his words. It hadn't been easy arriving at where they were but it had been largely due to his perseverance and patience that they'd made it. Her heart swelled with emotion, tears clogged her eyes.
"Thank you, Benjamin, for teaching me," she said through the choke in her throat.
He brushed his lips against her forehead. When he lifted his head, he had a wicked grin on his face.
"It has always been a pleasure," the tone of his voice was sinfully arousing, promising so much. "Now it is time for you to move on to the next step."
"Next step?" Her curiosity spiked along with her apprehension. What did he mean by that? She'd thought they'd found a happy equilibrium at this point. He obviously didn’t think so.
"Yes, you are ready. Stand for me."
Body slightly quivering with excitement, she manoeuvred herself to do his bidding. Nearly stumbling on her high heels, he held on to her thighs stopping her from falling over, his touch branding her flesh. She straightened, holding her body still, waiting.
"Go and stand by the railing facing the water."
She did as he instructed with her heart pounding in her chest.
"Hold on to the top bar."
Puffing out breaths to calm her body, she wrapped her fingers on the round black cold metal.
"Spread your legs wide."
She was about to turn her head.
"No. No matter what happens, don't look back."
