Exclusive Excerpts – The Dani Collins Erotic Romance Collection
Two lessons of disguise, erotic pleasure, and liberation from renowned author Dani Collins.
As though to compliment her pristine white dress, he wore an off-white shirt and buff colored pants in a soft chamois, the laces a triangle at his crotch, his boots brown, loose and slouched. Even the mask and gloves were chocolate rather than black. Peasant colors. “Tell me,” he said as he floated a forest green sheet over the bed. “Have you been practicing your homework?” “No.” She came to grip the rung at the foot of the bed, admiring the gold fringe and tassels on the sheet. “I wasn’t sure I was allowed.” “It’s your body, Arianne. Do whatever pleases you. But I’m glad, my beautiful student,” he said, dropping a light kiss on her nose, “that you didn’t.” “Why?”
“Because.” He dropped a matching green cushion on the floor beside the bed. “I think you’ll enjoy this more if you’re aroused, but not recently satisfied.” She let him peel her fingers from the end of the bed and draw her around to the side. Her breath caught and fluttered high in her chest, into the base of her throat. Would she be able to let go and— “Are you ready to learn how to please a man, Arianne?” He tucked her hair behind her ear. “I—pardon?” She had thought... He leaned down to nip her earlobe. “I want to fuck your mouth,” he whispered. A streak of excitement pierced her, both from the words and the feel of his breath disturbing the tiny hairs at her nape. Performance anxiety edged out some of her intrigue, however, while the scent of his aftershave, clean and woodsy and sharp, imprinted on her memory forever.
“I don’t know how,” she admitted, unable to look at him. Her stomach muscles rippled as he ran his hands down her sides. His one thumb briefly pressed her nipple to cause a detonation of pleasure at her clit. “I’m going to tell you,” he promised huskily. “Here. Kneel down.” He backed up another two steps, sitting on the edge of the bed so the green cushion was between his booted feet. Taking her hands, he drew her forward, maneuvering her with the firm touch he’d used yesterday when he’d photographed her, positioning her so her forearms rested on his thighs, her knees on the soft velvet of the cushion.
“Now open my laces.” He leaned back on his hands, his legs splayed in invitation. “I wasn’t expecting this.” She hesitated, longing to touch him, but nervous. What if she screwed up?
What if this was Jason and she was about to fail at the one thing every man adored more than life itself? “Take your time. The anticipation is half the fun.”
He stroked warm fingers up and down her spine and said, “You wouldn’t have ticked the box if you weren’t curious, Vi.” Oh, how did he know? Okay, maybe she was a little. Maybe she had projected a fantasy in her mind where he bought her and she let him do this and it proved they were a match after all.PURCHASE LINKS
She was still scared, not so much of the swat of his hand, but of the consequences. What if she hated him for this? What if it ruined everything? Clutching handfuls of blankets, she dug her forehead into the mattress and held herself stiff as a board on his lap, breath held in apprehension, instinctively rejecting what was happening. “So resistant,” he murmured. “You’re forgetting that I cut my teeth on spanking. I’m really good at this, you know. You’re lucky. Most first-timers get walloped by a clumsy husband and wind up massively disappointed because, like most men, he didn’t read the directions first.” She couldn’t help choking with disbelief. Lifting on her bent elbows, she did her best to glare daggers through the blindfold. “Position is key,” he informed her. “Straighten your arms.” When she didn’t move, he said, “I’m not going to do this badly so you can tell yourself you didn’t like it. I can clip you to the post to get you where I want you.” Begrudgingly she let her hands slide out in front of her until her breasts were flat on the puffy satin of the quilt, face averted from his.
“Better. And thank you for wearing these. It’s always a nice touch to see this bunched line of lace cutting across the backs of the thighs.” He lowered her panties, which were insubstantial, but the feel of them peeling down her cheeks was incredibly sensual, especially the slow, painstaking way he did it. “You have the most beautiful ass, Ann-Violet.” The flood of liquid heat into her pussy was unexpected and mortifying. How could she be turned on by what was about to happen? She wriggled a little, tensing with self-consciousness, embarrassed by her weird libido that found the idea of him admiring her ass insanely exciting. “Purists would tell you that tensing up like that is a big no-no. It dulls the sensation. You want maximum sting and I promise you, we’re both going to feel this. I want this to be as good for you as possible, but the fact is, you’re getting spanked for a reason. You hurt and scared me.”
