A Most Dangerous Prospect -Snippet Sunday

It's Snippet Sunday, time for my Weekend Writing Warriors'  blog hop!


I got some work done on Bound to Her Master, which is looking to be a 3-book erotic fantasy/romance (and a spinoff of my Immortal Paradise series.) Synopsis follows the snippet. It's been many months since I posted a snippet from this one, so let's start fresh. 

Ti-Hana, a pregnant earth girl who falls into an arrangement to "pose" as the sex slave of god and arising ruler Lord Stepanyan, is speaking with her midwife. Carana has just told her of the trials of ascension, a series of tests being faced by Ti-Hana's Master.  Failure could allow his (and Ti-Hana's) nemesis to claim the high seat instead. Ti-Hana wants Stepanyan to win, of course, but Carana assumes it's because it would elevate Ti-Hana's personal standing as a slave. We pick up with Ti-Hana's reply... 


“I’m not interested in how Lord Stepanyan’s ascension would help my personal standing,” Ti-Hana said, stroking her abdomen to calm the baby’s restless wriggling.
Carana returned Ti-Hana’s teacup to the serving tray. “Then you would be a rare slave indeed. Some are more devious and power-grabbing than the nobles they serve.”
“I don’t care about status, I just want his happiness.” She watched the light dimming in the purple-orange sky, and she turned with a frown. “Shouldn’t Matron be here by now? I have to get ready for tonight’s session with my Master.”
“You seem in a hurry to be in his arms again,” Carana said, her eyes narrow. A most dangerous dangerous prospect.”

Dangerous? Hm. What do you think?  


About Bound to Her Master:
Pregnant and on the run, Maddie races away from one set of problems only to plunge through a portal to another land. In the seventh realm, breathtakingly gorgeous demigods embrace ancient traditions of Dominance and sexual slavery...and she is about to become Ti-Hana, the most sought-after captive of all.

Stepanyan is in his time of ascension, ready to claim his father's place as ruler of the high seat. When his rival for the realm tries to claim a lost, pregnant human wandering in the Shogran, Stepanyan swoops the fiery beauty out from under him. He has no desire for a pleasure slave, but keeping Vo'Dan from getting what he wants is too great a temptation to ignore. No matter that Stepanyan's father banned pleasure slaves from his house decades before. Or that taking on a subservient is the last distraction he needs as he faces the trials of ascension.


Bound to Her Master is a spinoff based on the Immortal Paradise series! Read the book whose sexy gods and steamy lore inspired Bound to Her Master!

  1. I'm with Carana- at least so far- it's best not to get attached!

    1. Sounds like the smart thing to do, anyway! Will Ti-Hana be smart about the sexy, gorgeous god? Hm.

  3. Hm. I wonder if Carana might not be jealous and one of the devious scheming people she just warned Ti-Hana about.

    1. Thank you! This is one of those stories I love to play around in, and I miss it when I'm doing something else.

  9. "Some are more devious and power-grabbing than the nobles they serve.” Oh so very true indeed... I wonder why it's a dangerous prospect to want to be back in his arms. And who's baby is she carrying? So many questions to this snippet. Very intriguing.

    1. She's in a precarious position to be falling for a man of his status, for sure. The baby is not his, to be clear...the opening of the book explains a bit more about the lovely fellow (not) who is responsible for her predicament.

  10. interesting comment: I just want his happiness. ... like the snippet.

    1. Thank you! Her comment definitely seems more emotional than gee-I'm-just-the-slave, doesn't it?

      Delete
  11. I wonder if she is expecting to get out of her slave status. She seems a bit "in love" with her master.

    1. Her slave status is complicated to say the least!
