Meet Allysa Hart and Rayanna Jamison
Coming August 7th, the first irresistible story in the new Masters of the Castle box set: Witness Protection Program.
Taming Terri by Allysa Hart & Rayanna Jamison
Partners. Best Friends. Ex-Lovers. K9 unit Terri O’Connel and Nick Carrusso along with their playful pup, Champ, find themselves on a case that challenges all of their skills.
Terri fights Nick every step of the way, but when her behavior compromises their mission, he puts his foot down. Taming her will be no easy feat, but if anyone is going to get the feisty woman under control, it’s the man who loves her the most.
Will their relationship survive, or will they walk out of the Castle and away from each other forever?
“Nick, please, I’m sorry,” she whispered frantically.
“It’s too late for sorry,” he informed her, grabbing a handful of hair and yanking her head up to meet his gaze. “You went too far, brat, and now you have a choice to make. The only choice you have in the outcome of this is the answer to this question: Am I going to be the one to deal with you, or is it going to be left up to Master Marshall?”
Her lip quivered and her eyes filled with tears as she realized just how much of a shit pile she had created with her antics. “Oh God,” she squeaked. “Nick, please no. Not Marshall.”
He raised his eyebrows and regarded her with scorn, “Oh, now you want me to deal with you, is that it?”
She nodded, her eyes shut tightly against the tears that were threatening to fall.
“I won’t be going easy on you,” he warned. “So, if that’s your thought, you can forget it right now. You might be better off with Marshall.”
Her head shook back and forth emphatically. He knew that would be the last thing she wanted.
Nick released her hair and snapped his fingers pointing to the floor. “Get on your knees and beg me to punish you for your misbehavior.”
Her eyes opened and flashed with anger. For just a brief moment, he saw the spark he was used to and wondered if she might decide to take her chances with Marshall instead.
Her jaw twitched, her chin jutted out. She met his eyes, and then, without a word, she carefully lowered herself to kneel on the floor beside his feet. He took a moment to enjoy the picture she made. She might have thought she was winning but the taste of her submission did nothing but encourage him.
“Nick, please forgive me. I’m so very sorry for the trouble I put you through and for not taking this mission seriously. I understand why I have to be in trouble, and I really don’t want to be at the mercy of Master Marshall. Please take pity on me and deal with me yourself. You’re the one I hurt. Let’s solve this between the two of us.”
He had to hand it to her, she could beg like a pro. If he didn’t know better, he’d think she had some experience in getting out of this kind of jam.
He grabbed her hair again and used it to tug her to her feet ignoring her hiss of pain.
“Listen up, brat,” he whispered in her ear, pulling her close enough that he could feel her breath on his neck and see the goosebumps on her skin as she trembled. “Your piss-poor attitude toward this place and the people here got old quick. Whether you like it or not, we are on assignment. Your behavior has been less than professional. I’m not about to risk you messing everything up because you can’t get past the activity in this so-called fuck fortress, as you like to say. Lives are at stake here, Terri. I need to be able to count on you.”
“You can!” she promised but Nick wasn’t hearing it. He silenced her with a look.
“You’ve already proven otherwise,” he growled. “And we don’t have time for you to attempt to prove yourself again. So, let me tell you how this is going to go. From here on out, you will act as my sub. I don’t care if we are in public or the privacy of our own room. You do what I say, when I say and how I say. I will give the orders and, if they aren’t followed, I will punish you as I see fit. If, when this is all said and done, you want nothing more to do with me, then so be it, you can ask Captain for a new partner. But, if you could just cut the crap and open your mind for two minutes, you might actually find that you enjoy the experience.”
About Allysa Hart:
I am a full-time mom to two sassy, strong-willed, loveable little girls. What can I say? They take after their Mama. I’m on the wrong side of 30, and I have been married to my best friend for over ten years and I couldn’t imagine doing life with anyone else by my side. We are Southern California transplants, currently residing in a very rural part of the east coast. I have two crazy dogs that I adore, even though they drive me out of my ever-loving mind most days.
Writing and graphic design consume all of my spare time and I could not be happier. This journey I am on is a crazy one, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
About Rayanna Jamison:
Writing has been a passion of mine since I was 9 years old, and I always dreamed of becoming an author, but life happens and sometimes that first step seems like a giant leap. I credit a life changing move from the Oregon to Utah in the fall of 2013 as the catalyst that began my writing career.
I now reside in Southern Utah with my husband, my two children, two dogs, my mother, my 90 year old grandfather and a lizard named Leo.
I write what I love to read, which is fun romantic stories about submission in its many forms, and often joke that my stories get slightly dirtier with each one I write. When I am not writing, I enjoy my passions, which include cooking, drinking good coffee and good wine, shopping for crazy knee socks, celebrating with sushi for every occasion, and most of all spending time with my friends and family.
