A test of mettle – #WIPitup


We’re half way through the week already, and it’s time for the awesome #WIPItUp blog hop! My snippet this week comes from one of my secret projects. I hope to be able to reveal some more details in the new year, but in the meantime, enjoy this intense little excerpt…


He raises his head, gazing up at me, standing by his side.

“Thank you all for attending.” He says the words to everyone, to both of the gentlemen, as well as the four other kneeling ladies, yet it’s my gaze that he never breaks whilst he speaks. “I have a new guest with me, and will be tending to her desires this evening. She is mine, and mine alone. The rest of you are free to play as you choose.”

I swallow at his words, my wrist falling into his lap as he releases me from his strong grasp. Turning, I bite my lip at the look of the gentleman. This man is my Lord and definitely my master, yet the thought of what he has in mind for me at this moment is nothing short of terrifying. I tremble as he appraises me, those deep soulful eyes assessing me carefully. Slowly, and without explanation, his right hand reaches for me, capturing my neck and drawing me down towards his face.

“So, here we are, My Lady,” he murmurs, bringing my mouth towards his own. “You have accepted my challenge so far. You have come to my chambers when I requested, accepted a drink and a meal, yielded to my kiss, and then, when I tempted you with more, you were hungry for what I offered.” He smiles, our faces just inches apart. “How exquisite you are,” he whispers. “How utterly beguiling… Yet now we come to the truly tantalising part. Now we reveal just how much mettle the lady has. Will you yield to me further this night, or will you refuse me?”


Enjoy the rest of the blog hop here!
