Surrender's Mischief is here!

What if a battle of the sexes became a turning of the tables?

When Darias takes Riana as slave he demands her obedience. She demands his surrender.

Surrender's Mischief releases today with Ellora's Cave.

1 Day and Counting

Just one more day before release!

Riana turned the key in the massive, old-fashioned lock in the office door. She rested her forehead against the cool wood, hoping it would soothe the throbbing in her temples. She placed both palms flat against the door and let it support her weight. What was he thinking?

2 Days and Counting

The sheer raw power in the low words raised the hair on the back of her neck. But it was the pain buried beneath the harsh whisper that caused her heart to ache.

3 Days and counting

Riana straightened her slumping shoulders when she caught the familiar sight of Darias standing by the glass doors then realized he hadn’t heard her enter. She took the opportunity to study him. One hand rested beside his head as he stared out the open door into the garden. There was a pensive look to the strong, masculine features. As she watched, he closed his eyes for a moment. She thought she saw a flash of pain on his face but couldn’t be sure in the subdued lighting.

4 Days and Counting

“I will make punishment private if you cease this foolishness and apologize in front of my warriors.”

She answered him with a backhand across the mouth that split his lip.

Darias wiped the smear of blood away then stared at the drop of bright red glistening on his fingers. He lifted his gaze, utterly impassive. “I’ll take that as a no.” He lashed out with his forearm.

5 Days and Counting

She stood there, panic in her ice-green eyes. Her hands clenched and unclenched by her sides as if she wasn’t quite sure whether to flee or lash out in a futile attempt to stop him.

Good. Finally she understood the enormity of her error. Mayhap, his life could get back to normal.

6 Days and Counting

He grabbed her wrist and moved her hand away from his chest. His men were right. She had too much power over him. If he let her, she would make him, in fact, soft. These were perilous times, even a perceived weakness could be dangerous.

To him…and to Nexar.

“Go to our garden and await me there.”

Pure fury flashed in her eyes before she shuttered her gaze. “I thought you were many things, my lord, but I never took you for a coward.” Her spine straight, her head held high, she turned and left the office, slamming the door behind her with a force that made the solid planks shudder on their hinges.

7 Days and Counting

Surrender's Mischief releases September 2nd, and I thought I'd post a snippet a day.

Darias to Riana:

“You didn’t learn the one thing you should have.”

She tilted her head back so she could meet his eyes as he crossed to stand directly in front of her. “And what’s that? My place as slave?”

“To shut your mouth.”
