“Can I come now, sir?” she asked, teeth digging into her bottom lip as her thighs clenched together, seeking relief. “Please, sir?”

“In a moment,” he said. “But first, I want you to see my face. Are you ready, Hannah?”

“Yes.” Her tongue slipped out to dampen her lips and her pulse fluttered in her neck. She was nervous, but she was also excited, ready to see the face of this man who both enraged and seduced her so easily.

And scared her, she shouldn’t forget about that, but with the magic he’d set loose in her body making her high with desire, it was hard to remember to be afraid. How could she fear a man who, thus far, had given her the greatest pleasure she’d ever experienced?

Bar one night, one man, and she knew by now that no one would ever live up to him, to that intense sexual encounter so long ago that never should have happened in the first place.

She was thinking of him as her owner untied her blindfold. She was thinking of his incomparable body and sharply angled face. Of those eyes that were both hungry and devoted, predatory and so full of love she would have sold her soul to exchange places with her sister, to be the Mason twin that beautiful stranger loved with such devotion and intensity.

She was so lost in the memory that for a moment, when her blurred vision cleared and she looked up into the face of her captor, she was certain she was hallucinating.

It couldn’t be…

There was no possible way…

Her eyes widened and her heart raced, slamming against her ribs, excitement and confusion making her feel like she was being pulled in two. It couldn’t be him, but still…there he was, standing over her, zipping up his gray suit pants and pulling his belt back into place. His eyes were harder, his face covered in dark stubble, and his body even thicker and more powerful than she remembered beneath his button down shirt, but he was her stranger, there was no doubt about it.

He had come for her, bought her, taken her away, and now he wanted to punish her for her sins.

He must know that it hadn’t been Harley he was with that last night. He must know it and be sufficiently enraged by it that he had tracked her down and done whatever it took to get her isolated on this island and at his mercy.

Hiro must have been complicit in the scheme, which meant Aunt Sybil might not be safe. Hannah knew she should be worried about Sybil, concerned for her own safety, and terrified of this man who was clearly as obsessive and mad as he was gorgeous. But she had been waiting years to see his face again, to feel his hands on her, his body moving inside of her, his rough voice calling her name instead of her sister’s.

And the part of her that had meant her promise to belong to him forever didn’t feel afraid. She felt like she was coming home, finding something precious she’d thought was lost forever.

So when she met his gaze and saw the hard, challenging expression in his eyes, her stomach flipped with excitement, not terror.

She would be his for an entire month and she would finally learn his name. It wasn’t much, but for a woman who had dreamed only of
his
hands since the night he crawled out that window into the rain, it was a gift.

A dark gift, but a gift nevertheless. And when a person receives a gift, there’s nothing to do but smile.

CHAPTER TEN

Jackson

Jackson waited, watching Harley’s eyes widening in recognition, not wanting to miss the moment she realized she had been caught in an inescapable snare.

Her hair was wild around her face and her eyes glittered in the sunset light streaming through the windows, making her look like a goddess come down to earth. Even sprawled on the floor, covered in cum, and with lines on her forehead where the blindfold was tied too tightly she was beautiful.

Those signs of his use made her even more beautiful, and if she were one of the submissive lovers he’d enjoyed himself with during his travels, he would be proud of her for her obedience and the way she’d relished the feel of him marking her with his release.

But she wasn’t his lover, she was his enemy and any moment her nimble mind would work its way around to the truth and she would shatter before him. She would quake and beg and know with a bone-deep certainty that all her worst nightmares had come true.

He expected her cheeks to pale and her lips to tremble. At the very least, he expected denial and pointless explanations. He didn’t expect her to smile.

But she did.

She smiled.

She smiled like the sun coming out from behind a rain cloud, a relieved, helpless-to-stop-its-spread, hopeful smile that left him feeling like he’d been punched in the gut.

The bitch actually looked happy to see him. Legitimately happy.

Not vindictively happy, not wickedly happy, just pleased.

Grateful even.

What the fuck.

What. The unholy. Fuck.

DEEP DOMINATION
Bought by the Billinaire Book Two
WARNING: This is one deep, dark, hard-spanking, dirty-talking read. Are you ready?
Hannah is in too deep, falling steadily under Jackson’s erotic control. It doesn’t matter that he’s her captor and tormentor. She lives for the nights when he draws her deeper into his world, teaching her the thrill of submission
Pain and pleasure. Love and hate. Him and her.
Jackson is falling—remembering why he couldn’t get enough of the woman who destroyed him—but so is she. Soon, he’ll reach Hannah’s hard limit and her obedient façade will fall away, exposing the monster he’s hunted across three continents.
But soon a shocking revelation interrupts their dark and twisted game and Jackson is left wondering who is the true monster.
