Ritual Restraints -Snippet Sunday

~~Warning: Adult content in synopsis~~

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

This will be the last snippet from Bound to Her Master for a while...NaNoWriMo kicked off today, so for the rest of November I'll be posting work from my NaNo project.


Last time, Ti-Hana was shocked to discover that she and her Master, Lord Stepanyan, were about to be the center ring attraction in the arena of the annual slave games.  Now, she is securing herself in irons for the ritual of Domination.

No one else aside from Master and slave was permitted to enter the sacred circle, so Ti-Hana slipped the cuffs around her own ankles—with no small difficulty in trying to maneuver around her belly. Next came her wrists, and as she cuffed one into a restraint suspended over her head, she saw a large glimmer in the air above her. With a start, she realized the giant arena view screen was projecting an image to the crowd. Her session would be showcased larger than life.
A bead of perspiration ran down her neck while she completed clicking the wrist cuff shut. With one arm already ironed, she had no way of restraining the other by herself, so she waited.
Lord Stepanyan came forward, the heat of his body palpable, and slid her free wrist into the final shackle. He had fallen silent, and while not a sound passed between them, she felt his intention, his dedication to the task, every movement filled with purpose and a spiritual reverence she hoped she mirrored to his satisfaction.
He tugged on the irons one by one, testing their security, and each pull heightened her sensitivity, a Pavlovian connection between the process of ironing and the pleasure that would follow. There would be pain, yes, and risk involved in this ritual, but she had placed full and uncompromising trust in her Master. 

What do you think?  And may I say best of luck to everyone who is participating in NaNoWriMo!

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.
