TAKING EVE

by Tina Donahue


Blurb:

A willing slave to possession, punishment, pleasure…

Dreams of a manor where submission and dominance once ruled draws Faith to hypnotherapist Colin Danes. Potently virile, he looks remarkably like her most cherished master from a past life. Desire smolders in his eyes, proving he’s never forgotten her.
Their carnal dance continues in the present and leads to their past when she was known as Eve. Through hypnotherapy, Colin brings her back to the Victorian era, a hidden estate where she eagerly submits to whatever he and her other noble masters crave. The exquisite discipline of the strap. Being bid on and mounted each night. Displayed and used for the enjoyment of all.
Most will take her. One will try to imprison her. Only he will be her true master in that life and this.


lust.


Excerpt

Eve was still bathing when he came for her. A man whose presence she’d frequently felt. A stranger she’d often seen riding past this cottage, his steed magnificent, a sorrel with a startling white mane and tail.
At those times, she’d noted the man’s well-defined features, noble bearing, the way his attention had focused on her alone. How his gaze had lingered and possessed, warming her skin, calling to everything female within her, demanding her submission. She’d given it, not moving, scarcely drawing a breath, her work forgotten.
Nothing except him had mattered.
Not once had he spoken or made a demand. During his increasingly prolonged observations of her, he’d been content—or obliged—to do no more than look.
Now, she saw the rope he held in one gloved hand.
Eve’s belly fluttered.
The ends of the rope jumped as he moved past the doorway, his height requiring him to stoop to avoid striking his head. He wore no top hat. Snow dusted his dark hair and shoulders. His ankle-length cloak was of fine black wool, lined with fur, his eveningwear consisting of a dark coat cinched at the waist and trousers of the same color. Fresh milk couldn’t compete with the flawless white of his vest and cravat, tied perfectly about his throat.
He closed the door, bolting it against interruption of what he was about to do.
The thought of it—and the metal’s sharp clack—caused Eve to start. Her pulse pounded fiercely. The candles Mrs. Trumble had lit stopped flickering at the wind’s departure. A few stray snowflakes floated in the air.
Eve felt none of the chill that he’d brought inside, only intense heat, spreading from her chest to her belly and cunt, then to her neck. Her throat tightened, not allowing her to make any sound as he stopped just short of the tub. Close enough for her to see his lushly lashed eyes, of the purest blue, more glorious than any sky.
He regarded her naked breasts to the exclusion of every other part of her and spoke for the first time. “Pull back your arms and arch your back. Present yourself to me.”
His voice was quiet yet commanding, smooth yet rough with arousal.
Unsteady with desire, Eve did as he wanted. She had no other choice. She wanted none. With her back arched and her arms drawn back, she lifted her breasts in offering.
He studied the ripe globes and her tightened nipples at a leisurely pace, moving from one side of the tub to the other to get his fill.
Eve remained a silent, obedient witness to his brazen perusal. Craving and enjoying it, desire pulsing through her.
A small smile touched his lips as her breasts quivered with her quick breaths. At length, his attention moved lower, to the part of her the bath continued to hide. Its violet-scented water reflected the candles’ flames, which tinted it gold and orange. Warm colors that hardly matched the heat blazing within Eve.
“You know what to expect?” he asked.
She nodded.
“All of it?”
Eve thought not, so she shook her head.
He seemed pleased by that and began, “From this moment forward, you’re never to cover yourself in any of your Masters’ presence. Your breasts, nipples, mouth, cunt, ass and anus are ours to use as we please. Whatever we require of you, no matter how demanding or indecent, you’re to obey with the greatest haste. You belong to us now. We have your agreement. Did you make it willingly?”
Eve had.

Scratch - release day! =)


My smokin' hot shifter story is out. You can get it from the Ellora's Cave site, and will be available very soon from Amazon, B&N and all other e-book platforms =)

Blurb:

Alexia is determined to honor her father’s memory by proving shape shifting big cats exist. But she never prepared herself to face Blake, the beyond-handsome man who just might be the link to the proof she needs. Their attraction is instant and undeniable, but before they have an opportunity to act on the chemistry simmering between them, danger closes in.
Running for their lives from those determined to exterminate Blake and all those like him, Alexia and Blake are forced to rely on each other. Between dodging bullets and lying low, Alexia and Blake explore more than the mystery of his heritage. Every passionate encounter and mind-blowing orgasm escalates their relationship, turning lust and attraction into something far more valuable. As the danger closes in, Alexia is going to have to choose what’s more important to her, honoring the father she adored or protecting the man she loves.

A Bargain Book!!


My full length (62k word count) paranormal novel, Shadow Hunter is available from Amazon, Smashwords and all other platforms (when made available) for the introductory price of $1.99. This book is special to me - it was my first 'real' book, which won and finalled in quite a few writing comps. The story was requested by Nocturne before it eventually sat with Entangled for many long months. After all that I've decided to self-publish my little 'baby' into the big wide arms of cyber space. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it =))

ES SIREN

I've been really enjoying the two book deal I have along with two other authors, Denise Rossetti and Shona Husk, for our Sci-Fi continuity ES Siren. In the lead-up to the releases, we're putting up diary entries detailing our characters lives before they boarded the air ship that carries them to the new planet of Solitaire. Lots of fun and a great insight! If you feel like having a read before release day, come and have a look at the ES Siren blog

By the way my two books will be called: 
Yours to Uncover 
and Mine to Serve.

Real Life Stuff

 
My writing has taken a back seat for just the moment with working (FT at moment) and building. Even better, we'll be moving in very soon - probably within two weeks! YAY!!!! So if I'm MIA for a bit you'll understand why lol! 

On the writing front, I do have a few things coming out. SCRATCH should be released through EC very soon, I also have my sci-fi continuity - Yours to Uncover, coming out this year through Momentum. I've  also signed a contract for a special project with Harlequin Escape, which I'm really excited about. Other than that, a few projects that I'm waiting to hear back on which I should be able to shout about soon... :)
