It’s Tuesday again and I have the delightful Tabita Black here with me. She’s inviting you on a journey in Sir Simon’s resort… where dark and sexy collide. Denial is the second book in her BDSM series, His Empire.
No man had ever had the capacity to reduce her to a puddle of delirious pleasure with just one expert fingertip the way he could. Shanna only wants to explore her kinky fantasies. She gets much more than she bargained for.
Disobey Sir Simeon’s rules at your own peril…
After finally finishing her degree, Shanna is rewarding herself with a holiday at Sir Simeon’s exclusive lifestyle resort, Nox Oasis. She can’t wait to finally experience some of the kinky things she’s only ever read about.
All work and no play is making Cavill frustrated but he takes his job as dungeon monitor very seriously. So when he’s forced to rescue a new guest from unwelcome advances, the last thing on his mind is to take her for himself.
But lust can so easily turn into more, and Shanna is irresistible.
Meanwhile, Sir Simeon has discovered the deception of two of his favorite employees and the consequences could be devastating…
Publisher’s Note: This steamy romance includes elements of power exchange. While it can be enjoyed as a standalone, we recommend also reading book one: Restraint.
So this is it. Sir Simeon’s kinky amusement park. I wonder what the next two weeks will bring? Anticipation made Shanna’s heart pound as she walked along the white pebbled pathway which ran between several signposts and small buildings. Various signs fired her imagination along the way; ‘The Wet Room,’ ‘The Clinic,’ ‘The Sorey Hole,’ ‘The de Sade Experience.’ Deciding to definitely explore that one—which was set up like a ghost train—at a later time, she instead followed an arrow to ‘The Little Turret.’ The building was like a perfect miniature version of a medieval castle turret, and her heart only began to beat faster as she walked along the small, fake drawbridge which led between the crenellated grey walls which cordoned this building off from the rest of the park.
The moment she pushed open the door, she could hear it: a rhythmic smacking sound, punctuated with howls, cries and promises to be good.
Shanna hesitated. There were obviously people playing inside, and as much as she wanted to take a peek, she didn’t want to disturb anyone. Then again, if they didn’t want to be disturbed, guests could always play in the privacy of their private suite, couldn’t they?
His Adam’s apple bobbed as he took a long swallow of beer. “How long are you here for?”
“Two weeks. You?”
He gave her a mysterious smile. “For as long as it takes.”
“To do what?” she couldn’t resist asking.
Josef winked. “To get to know you.”
A small part of her scoffed at how downright cheesy he was being, but she was glad of the attention, and he was easily the most handsome man in the room. Halfway down her second drink, she realized how much fun she was starting to have. “Have you met the infamous Sir Simeon yet?” she said, trying to change the subject.
“Nope. Have you?”
Shanna shook her head. “I’m starting to think he doesn’t really exist. You know, like the Wizard of Oz.”
Josef laughed. “Wouldn’t that be a hoot?”
They both turned as some more people entered the bar. Shanna recognized the brunette receptionist immediately. Hot on her heels was a tall, darkly handsome man with slanting black eyes. “I guess the mixer has officially started now,” she whispered to Josef. Receiving no response, she turned to see he had gone completely still and was watching the new arrivals like a lion stalking its prey. He didn’t take his eyes off either of them.
One after another, the new Doms introduced themselves and Cav found himself saying, “Welcome to Nox Oasis.”
“It’s great to finally be here.” Red blew out a breath. “The waiting has been the worst.”
“Well, the wait is over now,” Cav said. “You ready for me to show you around?”
All five men nodded.
“I thought we’d start with the park and work our way inside. If there’s a kink—within the law—we cater to it. But this place is still new, so suggestions are welcome.”
“And what is it you do?” Kale said as they left the conference room and headed toward the elevators.
“DM,” Cav said curtly.
“So we’d better suck up to you,” Red said.
As instantly as he’d taken a shine to Kale, Cav found himself disliking Red, who had thick hair dyed a deep, intense scarlet and was wearing far too many rings. “You’ll only have a problem with me if you violate our R.A.C.K. standards,” he said coolly. “Those,” he nodded at the rings, “shouldn’t be worn during a scene, for instance.” He hated how petulant he was sounding but he took his job seriously and didn’t like the way Red seemed to be looking down on him.
“Why not?” Luke asked. He himself was more the farmer boy type; hair the color of wheat, a broad, open face, and not an accessory to be seen anywhere on him.
“Rings can cut the skin,” Cav said, leading them out of the elevator, through the lobby and out into the punishing heat. “Regardless of what you’re doing—spanking, fingering, fisting—they’re just a needless hazard.”
“Do you ever get used to this humidity?” Jason said, pushing back a lock of thick black hair which had escaped his ponytail. “I can’t get over how hot it is.”
Cav chuckled. “Leather trousers probably aren’t the best wardrobe choice, especially during the daytime.”
“That’s all right, I intend to spend a good deal of time naked,” Stefan interjected.
They all laughed.
Her face was still buried in his shirt. “Is everyone staring at us?”
His rumbling laugh made him vibrate all over. “No, baby. And even if they were, would you care?”
“Yes.” She hated how small her voice sounded but it was all so much to take in. After months of hiding, fearful of this moment, it had arrived, and he seemed to be almost indifferent to the potential ramifications.
“Well, you shouldn’t. Mine is the only opinion which should matter to you. At least when it comes to things like this.”
His hand crept between her thighs then, and she spread them a little almost without thinking.
“Good girl… still obeying my no panties at work rule.”
He found her clit and began to stroke it… up and down, around and around… until her entire body was alight and any other thoughts had vanished from her mind.
“Keep still, baby,” he murmured. “You deserve a reward for being such a good little girl for me. Think you can come without making a sound?”
While you’re at it, why don’t you also buy Book 1 of the series?
USA Today bestselling author Tabitha Black has been writing erotic spanking fiction for over twelve years, mostly in the age-play and historical genres. More recently, she’s discovered the joys of writing more contemporary, darker, edgier books with a greater emphasis on BDSM – one of which, Sharing Silver, was nominated for a Golden Flogger award and won the Spanking Romance Reviews award for best ménage.
Having lived in four countries on three different continents, and been an active participant in her local kinky communities, she likes to “write to discover what she knows.” Her own personal kinks include anything and everything to do with spanking, fireplay, edge play, scarification, age-play, and too many more to count. Some girls like wood, some adore leather, but Tabitha is partial to big, shiny, ornate knives… nothing else makes her quite as weak at the knees.
She lives in Europe with her Daddy/Sir, and a lilac cat who likes to sneeze in her face.
