This excerpt is from Heart's Bounty.
Sometimes, love among the stars happens. Sometimes it takes a while. And sometimes it gets a little kinky. In this clip, Miho is paying off a debt by serving as a submissive for a party, and this is the get-acquainted practice session. He's taken a drug called Starlight, which means all he can see is stars. Rejan is his top's tutor and one of the hosts.
“Miho,” Rejan said, “we’re in the playroom. You’re going to be buckled out and flogged. Is that all right with you?” He reached out to touch Miho and gently raise his arms.
Miho thought a minute. He wondered what his Sir looked like. All he saw were supernovas and deep black. “It’s a hard start…”
“Only as hard as you like it,” Rejan assured him. “Your top has never held a whip before. Let’s teach him how so you both look sexy at Scream.”
“All right, Sir,” Miho agreed. He felt hands, Sir’s most likely, fumbling at the buckles on the cuffs and putting his wrists in. Sir strapped them tightly, but not bad. Miho was standing, facing some kind of frame, and spread-eagle.
The first lick of leather on his back was hesitant. It was obvious that Sir had never held a whip. The second thudded hard without a nice snap or bite.
“Like this,” Rejan said. “Put some wrist into it. Just throwing it at him is inelegant. Make it snap. The noise is part of the experience. This should flow.”
The next blow felt better, as if Sir had let it start at his shoulder and carry right on out through his wrist. Miho gasped as his hands fisted in the cuffs. The fourth was the same good snap and thud. His whole back woke up and begged for more.
