With every book I write, I learn something new. Most of the time my characters have taken it upon themselves to be adept in an aspect of BDSM I don’t have knowledge in. Usually, those are the moment where everything comes to a grinding halt as I put down writing and take up research. The first question I always ask myself is: “Do I know someone who has this particular experience?” And off I go.
But that became a challenge with Riding Irish. Both the lead characters are advanced swimmers. So they have extensive knowledge about holding their breath. Believe it or not, when I discovered this was going to play heavily into their lovemaking, I didn’t seek out a Dom or sub with experience in edge play. Instead, I talked to swimmers who use breath control to train for their swim meets.
“Oh hell, that’s distracting.”
“Good. Means you’re ready for me to do this.” His voice rumbled in her ear, rough and just this side of out of control as he filled her with one easy thrust. She kept breathing, feeling the luxurious slide of his erection thrusting deep inside her. “Keep holding the lip of the pool. Put your other arm around my shoulder. Same rule as before—pinch me if you get in trouble.”
He submerged them both entirely under the water, sinking until her arm was stretched out and the grip she had on the cement was their only connection to the surface. He’d robbed her of everything but the feel of him. Against her. Around her. Inside her.
He thrust upward, driving deeply, a burning-hot sensation exploding throughout her system as he moved. The deprivation of nearly all her senses only served to heighten the experience, driving her toward release with reckless abandon. Surrounding and overwhelming her with him in every way.
Kane moved slowly, clearly in no hurry despite the fact that they were underwater. His body flowed against hers, his hips rocking as he drove to the root with each glorious thrust. Time stretched out again, elongating and slowing so each second seemed to drag by, adding another layer to the dreamlike quality of their connection.
Mayhem is a way of life for Avery. The last thing she needs is a complication like Kane. The medal-winning swimmer who comes to her rescue is the ultimate golden boy. Everything this woman from the wrong side of the tracks shouldn’t want and everything she can’t stop thinking about. But emotion—and vulnerability—are liabilities she can’t afford.
Kane can’t understand why he experiences such dark, forbidden and kinky desires when he is around Avery. But her touch sparks a hunger deep inside him, and unleashes an erotic discovery where pain becomes pleasure. Their uninhibited passion reveals Kane’s dominant nature.
As Avery submits to Kane, exploring boundaries and pushing limits, she discovers a life she never expected. The unlikely pair forge a bond so tight, their unyielding trust gives way to a love like no other. But Avery’s brothers—members of Oahu’s most notorious motorcycle club—have other plans. Now Avery is forced to make a decision where her loyalty resides—with her family or with a lover who brings peace to the chaos surrounding her.
Warning: Ignition point hits hard and fast for this Dom and sub as an Irishman discovers his delightful talent for breath control, spankings and clothespins. You may just want laundry day to come more often.
