Charming the Masters releases Friday
Charming the Masters, a Jewel Quickie by Katherine Kingston, releases March 14, 2008. The story is a contemporary BDSM/ménage that features bondage, spanking, MFM interaction and a bit of food play. No vegetables were abused in the course of the story, however, unless you consider eating them an act of depravity.
Blurb: The jeweled amulet Lindy wears to the club’s Halloween party is imbued with a love charm to make her irresistible to men. Shy Lindy needs some magic to snare the masterful man she wants. After seeing business acquaintance Rick Lowery do a demonstration of sensual flogging techniques, she’s convinced he’s the one. Rick does respond to her, but so does his friend, Kyle Harrison. It will take all her courage to handle both of them, but she's eager for a night to remember. Lindy figures that's all she's likely to get after she confesses to them what she’s done.
Rick looked from one of them to the other and let his gaze rest on Lindy for a moment, studying her a bit more seriously than he had before. “I was in the process of asking Lindy if she’d like to wear my collar for the evening. Under the circumstances I think I might revise the request.”
Lindy stared at him. Kyle did the same. Her breath caught when she understood. This definitely qualified as getting more than she bargained for.
“Kyle has been a Master for a long time and he’s extraordinarily good at it,” Rick told her. “He could teach us both a lot.” Rick’s eyes questioned her silently, waiting for her to shake her head or otherwise refuse.
She wasn’t sure why he wanted to include Kyle. Because Kyle needed it? Or because he himself needed the moral support. Hard to believe that. Could he think she might prefer it?
Rick was still the man she wanted, but for some reason he wanted Kyle to join them. Maybe it would help him over the awkwardness of starting a different sort of relationship with someone who’d been a mere business acquaintance a few hours ago.
“I don’t think that’s what Lindy had in mind in coming here,” Kyle said, filling the awkward void of her silence.
Lindy shook her head. “Actually, Rick and I just ran into each other here a few minutes ago, though we’ve been acquainted for a while.” Which was the truth if not the whole truth.
“Business relationship,” Rick added. “Though now that we’ve met here, I’d like to expand that. Lindy is close to a novice, though.”
Kyle gave each of them a quick, hard glance, started to say something and then thought better of it. He shrugged. “It could be tempting. To have such a lovely sub and share her with a good friend. It’s been a long time, though, and I’m out of practice.”
“It’s not the kind of thing you’re likely to forget,” Rick said. “But it might be more than Lindy is ready for.” Both men looked at her.
She’d come here tonight hoping to meet and connect with one particular man. And so she had, but in truth, she found him a bit intimidating. She found Kyle intimidating too. And yet… For reasons that made no sense whatsoever, the two of them together seemed a bit less so. “I don’t think I mind.” A smile formed. “Actually I should be getting down on my knees in gratitude. To have two strong, handsome men wanting to Master me? I’ll bet half the women in the room would kill to be in this position. Maybe more than half.”
