Welcome back to Work In Progress Wednesday! I’m still plugging away at Scarlett and Monty’s story. It’s getting closer to completion but they’re still struggling how deeply their falling for each other, but soon they’ll understand how high the stakes are. Frankly, I’m not done making them miserable yet. They’ve got some angst coming their way, and some other people and outside forces will cause them some problems too, but don’t worry, I’ll have the remedy too. 😉
Just a reminder: This story is for adults only, so if you’re not at least eighteen years old, please navigate away from this webpage.
“I’m scared.” She exhaled loudly.
His tongue trailed up the shell of her ear before he whispered, “Of me?”
She nodded as tears formed in her eyes. “I don’t know how far I’ll fall.”
“All the way. Go ahead; your fingers are tired. Loosen your grip and let go of whatever you’re clinging to, dangling from…drop into the abyss. I’ll be waiting to catch you.”
She threw her arm up behind her head, wrapping it around his neck. “I’m not ready to let it all go. I can’t lose myself in you and your discipline.” She sniffled. “I like you, but there are things I have to know. Lots I still have to do.”
“Shhh, I want you—the brave beauty who crossed into another world to find her destiny—the same girl who tried to fight a wolf with a basket of wine, bread, and cheese.” He snickered as he pressed his lips against the side of her forehead. “I won’t try to change you. I just want to keep you alive, and I won’t apologize for burning up your butt if that’s what it takes to protect you from your fantasies of a benevolent band of magical beauties.” His erect cock poked into her back.
“I’ve decided not to let you spank me.”
“Is that right?” He placed one hand on her stomach and the other on her shoulder before he pushed her forward easily forcing her to bend at the waist.
“Monty!” Two sharp smacks against her backside had her squealing and dancing from foot-to-foot.
All or her life, Scarlett dreamed of improving her dire circumstances by being selected to join the prestigious Order of the Phoenix. She worked hard, studied and remained pure well into her twenties in hopeful preparation. Just when she was about to realize her dream, the most gorgeous man she had ever seen ruined her first meeting with the women of the order, claiming he was rescuing her. Confused and overwhelmed, Scarlett found herself unable to resist the man who claimed to be her fated mate.
Orphaned at an early age, Monty’s done his best to take care of his younger sister, Katina, and just when he’d nearly gotten her all grown up, Scarlett, who might as well be as helpless as a newborn kitten, rushed in to blow a huge hole into his life. He didn’t ask for a mate, and he hadn’t wanted one, but his werewolf’s heightened sense of smell made her tantalizing even from miles away. The worst part about their sticky situation is her connection to the magical terrorist group responsible for his parents’ and older brother’s murder. Scarlett’s stubborn refusal to believe the truth about the Order doesn’t help either.
Monty’s determined to protect Scarlett from the Order’s evil plans for her and from her own deeply ingrained indoctrination even if he has to spank her bottom until it’s the same color as her beautiful crimson hair. Compounding his difficulties, he’s afflicted with a unique, third shifter-form he doesn’t fully understand and isn’t totally able to control. Will Monty be able to save Scarlett or will he prove to be more of a danger to her than anyone else?
