Raising the Stakes -Snippet Sunday

~~Warning: Adult content~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday.  


I'm still working on my fantasy, Bound to Her Master. Last time, Lord Stepanyan busied himself assessing the body paint on his slave, Ti-Hana, rather than tell her she's entitled to sleep with another man of her choosing as part of the double moon celebration. 
I'm skipping ahead a few paragraphs. It is time for their "audiencing", a public display of Stepanyan's Mastery. Ti-Hana is blindfolded and being led by guards to what she'd assumed would be her Master's private box seats, but it's soon apparent the entourage is headed someplace else.

At the rate they were descending, they would hit the arena floor itself before long. That thought struck her, and she sucked in a shallow breath.
They stopped again with her still standing on stairs.
“Presenting his arising lordship,” came a deep, reverberating boom over the loudspeaker. “Stepanyan of the house of Oshar, Lord of the Shogran, Destroyer of the fire beast, and Cerunnon Master, honoring the ancient tradition with a demonstration in the main arena.”
Ti-Hana's heart sped. Her Master might have mentioned their session wasn’t to be a small audiencing, but a center ring attraction where every eye in the stadium would scrutinize their every move.
There were no cheers, only silence, while she sensed Lord Stepanyan being taken into the arena first.
“Be mindful of the sounds you make from here on,” a maidservant whispered, slipping something around Ti-Hana’s neck. “Every noise will be amplified for the audience, from your words right down to a sigh.”

Surprise, Ti-Hana! Lord Stepanyan has just raised the stakes on her submissive training--and he isn't done yet.
What do you think?

About Bound to Her Master:

Single and pregnant, Maddie stumbles through a portal to a strange, exotic world ruled by gods who practice ancient traditions of  sexual slavery, bondage and Domination. And in this land where pregnant females represent the ideal of erotic beauty, Maddie has just become a prize catch. 
The last thing Stepanyan wants is a sex slave. The heir to the high seat has bigger problems, such as passing the trials of ascension and keeping his rival, Vo'Dan, from stealing his right to rule. But when they both encounter a lost human in the desert, Stepanyan jumps to claim the beauty before his nemesis can have the satisfaction. Although he has no intention of keeping her other than to rob Vo'Dan of a victory, Stepanyan must first become her Master, and she his bondage slave, in a convincing show of Dominance to avoid allegations of a wrongful claim.
Maddie knows nothing of the ancient ways, but she must learn in order to stay safe and hide Stepanyan's true motives. In return, he will offer her far more concessions than other Masters, especially the cruel and sadistic Vo'Dan.
But as Stepanyan and his female--now known as Ti-Hana--act out their roles as Master and slave, there will be unexpected consequences to their intimacy. A growing attachment to her sexy Master takes Ti-Hana for a hard ride she fears she won't recover from, and Stepanyan will undergo a change that will not only threaten his right to rule, but could forever alter a religious practice that has endured for thousands of years. 
And when Vo'Dan discovers the pair has broken the laws of slavery to pursue their passion, he will win the right to claim the female Stepanyan never wanted, but can no longer live without.

  4. This tale makes me wonder what kind of society institutionalizes voyeurism and exhibitionism. I picture it as an old culture with a well-established hierarchy.

    1. Their traditions are indeed ancient--and immortal. Definitely not the culture-next-door!

  5. I really like this snippet. It ends on a very tense note, and I love the "right down to a sigh" part.
