“I made a commitment. I’m going to do this job like I do every job, and that’s by giving it one hundred percent. Show me how to be a sub.” She hesitated and then glanced back at the screen, seemingly unable to look at Dace of Micah as she spoke. “Are you…are you going to do that to me?”
“Do you want us to?”

Nick found herself swallowing hard. She wanted to scream yes and fling herself over the arm of the couch. She also wanted to grab her clothes and run far, far away. She was turned on. She couldn’t deny that. She also couldn’t explain why, but she knew she needed this.
“I don’t know. Maybe. I shouldn’t. I’m here to do a job.” She paused. That sounded so, so pathetic. She was a strong woman. She owned her sexuality. She had a chance to live out her fantasies. She was just going to play a sub, not commit to a relationship. She would be able to find out if it was as hot in real life as it was to read about, and she wasn’t going to squander the chance.

Uncovering Satisfaction, Satisfaction Texas 3, the story of Nicola, Micah and Dace, on presale now at www.bookstrand.com/uncovering-satisfaction
me-dl-st-uncoveringsatisfaction1
Meet Nicola, undercover operative on leave after a devastating end to her last assignment:
She was going stir- crazy in El Paso. She’d considered heading back east to her own apartment, but that held just as many bad memories. She got up, logged into her computer, and looked at the e-mail from Quin again.
That was some town he’d moved to. First there had been the whole drug cartel and potential kidnapping thing, and then Quin had gone undercover as a hit man to find out who was trying to kill a prominent local rancher by the   name of Murphy Smith. The guy had no luck. It was his girlfriend, Jess Archer, who had almost been kidnapped by the cartel. The company hadn’t been sure at first if those two cases were related, so they had sent Quin in undercover. He’d cracked the case and then done something that had shocked Nicola to the core.
He quit. He had chosen to make a life in Satisfaction, Texas with a woman he’d fallen in love with. His best friend, Blake, also loved her, and the three of them were now living happily together and talking about starting a family. They had even had a commitment ceremony. She’d seen the photos, but she hadn’t been up to going.
She wasn’t sure what was in the water down in Satisfaction, but part of her wondered what it would be like to have not one but two men devoted to her, to be able to lose herself in their lovemaking. Hell, she’d kill for one man to fuck her into oblivion so she could just let go of everything, quiet her brain, and chase away the nightmares.

Meet Dace, sheriff of Kinsdale County after he first sees Nicola:

He took a deep breath and t…hen a long draw on his beer. His jail was empty just now. Most prisoners were kept in the main facility over in Kinsdale. The Satisfaction jail was only used for short-term arrests, such as drunks kept overnight. He could keep her locked naked in a cell and take her out to play and no one would ever know. Except Micah. He’d tell him after a few days, and the two of them would play with her and then lock her away when they were done to await their pleasure.

Or, he considered, he could use the Wild West jail playroom at the club. It was a recreation of an old time western cell, but with all the BDSM accoutrements including soft leather manacles and various hooks and straps to use on a troublesome sub. They could strap her down and play with her to their heart’s content.

He smiled to himself. She’d probably kick him in the nuts if he tried something like that, but damned if he wouldn’t give his left nut to see her naked behind bars—behind his bars. Hell, he might even get on his knees and beg for something like that.

Meet Micah, owner of the Whips and Spurs Saloon and BDSM Club: 

It had taken Micah two years… of hard work, but he’d made a success of the place. He was trying not to show it, but Dace knew he was terrified of losing it all.

Micah’s tone was bleak. “What am I going to do? Six months ago, it was a single broken window. Then nothing for almost two months. Now there have been two incidents involving members in the last week. Sooner or later, one of them will put two and two together, and then word will get out and I can just shut down and file for bankruptcy.”

“Which brings me to my investigator friend, Nick Marlow. Best in the business.”
Micah found himself feeling a surge of hope but he quickly tamped it down. What could one person do? Then again, if they worked for the same outfit that had employed Quin… …He allowed himself a smidgen of optimism.

“You really think he can get to the bottom of things?”

“If anyone can, Nick can.”

It was only 10:00 p.m., but none of them had the heart to try again, and for once, even her Mates weren’t aroused. She’d never seen them naked and not hard for her. It showed her the depth of their despair that they were as limp as she felt.

In that moment, she resolved not to put them through another Mating Ceremony until she figured out what the problem was. They weren’t going to suffer through another failure again.

She felt Kent and Tucker get up. They never used an alarm. Both had one of those inner clocks that seemed infallible.

“Wake up sleepy head. Want us to get you come coffee?” She felt Tucker brush her hair back and kiss her cheek lightly.

“Yes please. I’ll be down in a minute.”

Kent walked over to her and paused. ‘You okay?”

“Yes, now shoo. I have another ten minutes before I have to get up, and I intend to enjoy every last second of it!” She waited until Kent kissed her cheek and both men headed downstairs before she let the tears start flowing.

“F**k the ceremony,” Penelope decreed as she sobbed quietly. “F**k shifter lore and mating ceremonies. I love them. They love me. It will be enough.” Her voice dropped lower. “It has to be,” she almost whispered. “At least until I can find the answer.”

What do you do when the Alpha is spying on you in his wolf-dog form and pretending to be a stray?

Samantha looked from Ginger to Penelope and back again. Then a smile lit up her face.

“Can you recommend a good vet, one who specializes in wolf-dogs?”

“What are you up to?”

“If Gabe comes by one more time in wolf-dog form instead of wooing me properly, I’m going to teach him a lesson he’ll never forget.”

“What are you up to?”

“If Gabe wants to hang out with me as a dog, I’m going to treat him like one. Ginger, are you aware that shape-shifters have a hard time shifting when they are wearing a collar?” she asked innocently. “Next time he comes to visit, I just might take him for a walk. And maybe to the vet for his shots.”

“You wouldn’t.”

“I would, and you will not spill a word, do you hear me!”

“I had no idea about collars. Are you sure?”

“I grew up with three shifting brothers. It totally works.”

“I have to see this. Here’s the deal. You promise to bring Gabe downtown and walk him where I can see him, and I’ll keep your secret.”

Here’s the story excerpt from “No Place Like Home”

STORY EXCERPT

She remembered that day as if it were yesterday. She’d set up a picnic down by the lake and invited them to join her. She might have implied that Annie was coming, too, but it was just her and them. She had everything ready for seduction. A beautiful and private location. Good food and good wine, wine that she’d swiped from her father’s wine cellar that morning. And she’d dressed for seduction, wearing a tight white tank with no bra underneath, and some low-rise cutoff shorts. Her hair was under control and she had, very subtly, applied enough makeup to make her green eyes look enormous and her lips red and inviting.

When they arrived, they were surprised that it was just the three of them, but they stayed and dug into the food and they laughed and talked and had a great time. But no romance. They didn’t even seem to notice the fact that her nipples were hard points and poking through the thin fabric.

And then the sun was going down and she knew that this might be her last chance, so she got up on her knees and leaned into the nearest twin, Jackson, and kissed him full on the lips. Then she turned and kissed Markus. Not giving herself a chance to think, she grabbed Jackson’s right hand and Markus’s left hand and placed them on her breasts. “Make love to me.” It came out as more of a plea than a demand.

It seemed like forever, but was probably only second, no one moved. Then she felt the hands on her breasts tighten, massaging. Jackson leaned in to kiss her while Markus lowered his head and pushed up her top so he could take her nipple into his mouth. She felt herself being pushed backward, Markus pushing Jackson aside to claim her mouth while Jackson moved to her breasts.

And then they stopped, pulling back, leaving her lying there with her breasts exposed. She lay there for a second. She could see from the bulges in their pants that they were aroused, but from their determined expressions, she knew things weren’t going any further. She scooted backward, pulling her top down, feeling her face going as red as her hair.

“Look, little girl,” began Jackson.

“I’m not a little girl.”

“You are a girl. Come back when you are a woman. You have no idea what you were starting. Have you ever even been with a man before?” His eyes narrowed. “And don’t lie to us.”

“No, you would be my first. And I know what I want, and I want you both. I have been waiting for you, and now I’m eighteen, and I want to be with you.”

“You know nothing.” Markus looked like he was in pain, but his face was set. “You have no idea what you are asking for.”

“I do. You two share woman. I’ve heard the rumors for years. I want both of you. I love both of you. I know what’s involved. I’m an adult.”

“Run along home now, before I put you over my knee and paddle your ass.” Jackson was trying to sound all dark and intimidating, but Cassie found it sent a shiver of excitement through her. She remembered the Violet book. Violet got spanked by her lovers and enjoyed it. A spark flared in her eye. She could have sworn there was an answering spark in Jackson’s eye.

“Go ahead, spank me. If you are man enough,” she taunted, half turning and presenting her ass to the brothers and wiggling it. “I dare you.” She grabbed Jackson’s hand and placed it on her ass. He pulled his hand away so quickly as if her ass was on fire. “Do it. Spank me.” She turned her head to look at Markus. “You can spank me next.”

The brothers looked at each other. “Come back to us when you are a woman and know the score and not a girl playing games.” And with that, they were gone, and she was alone, and the tears came. She wept for her lost loves and the end of her childhood and her broken heart. She loved them unreservedly, and they had rejected her. As the sun set, her heart and resolve hardened. She would leave Hope and forget about them. She would love and be loved, and they’d come to regret breaking her heart. And she would never let herself be that vulnerable again.
