“You got me here somehow,” Addie replied. “So there must be a way to get me out again.”
“I’m afraid not.”
“You’re afraid not? You mean you won’t let me leave again,” she scowled at him. “I’m being held against my will, aren’t I?”
“That depends on whether you want to stay or not,” he said, his teeth flashing in an unrepentant smile. “If you want to stay, then no, you’re not being held against your will.”
“But if I want to leave, then I am.” She shook her head in disgust and let her temper get the better of her. “Ass.”
If anyone else had spoken to Adam that way the punishment would have been swift and severe. Addie was a spoiled brat, entirely unaccustomed to the concepts of respect or submission – though he could see the instinct for both in her eyes in brief flashes of uncertainty. She was also quite beautiful, and prideful. She was utterly determined that he should not have the upper hand, no matter how obviously vulnerable she was.
The harsh alpha side of him was tempted to temporarily rescind his hospitality to teach her a lesson about reliance and dependence, but he suspected she had so little of an instinct for self preservation she would ignore what was quite obvious about her situation – that she was depending on him to provide food, shelter, and everything else she would need. Putting her out would be like kicking a puppy into the snow. She didn’t have the skills to survive, and that meant that she needed to be looked after. Looking after her meant disciplining her, teaching her their way of life. She wouldn’t like it. He was sure she’d probably hate it, but it had to be done if he wanted to maintain order.
“That is not how you speak to me,” he said, keeping his voice firm, but even. “You might not like being stuck out here, but you don’t need to be rude.”
“I’ll talk to you how I like,” Addie replied, lifting her chin in a ‘what are you going to do about it’ sort of way.
He could smell a certain amount of fear on her. That was understandable. She had seen him transform from a wounded wolf to a man, but she did not believe her senses and now she found herself far from where she’d started and without access to civilization. He needed to settle her, and he knew just one way to do that effectively.
“Let me show you what I’m going to do about it.” Taking her by the hand, he lead the recalcitrant young lady back to his bedroom. It was much warmer in there, fortunately for her as she was about to lose the bulk of her clothing over the next little while.
“What the hell are you doing?” Addie tried to pull out of Adam’s grip, but it was way too strong. He wasn’t even trying to hold on to her all that hard, it was just that when he grabbed something, he apparently didn’t let go.
“You need to learn some manners, girl,” Adam growled. He spoke as if he had some right to her, as if her mere presence in his home was enough to allow him to do as he pleased with her.
“Fuck off!” She didn’t know what he intended on doing, but she had the feeling she wasn’t going to like it. She already didn’t like being dragged about as if she were his possession.
Addie dug her heels in, but all that succeeded in doing was making him grab the scruff of her sweater and haul her up off the ground and then over his knee as he sat down on the bed, grappling her into a position which left her butt vulnerable to his palm.
“You’re wearing a dozen layers,” he grunted. “Won’t feel anything through them.”
She was starting to get an inkling of what he intended to do to her, though she could barely believe it. Nobody spanked grown women. Not even out here. Not even….”oW!” Addie let out a little yelp as his hand came clapping down across both buttocks in a solid slap that she very much did feel through the layers of her clothing. “Cut it out!” She complained in a pained whine.
“I don’t think so,” Adam said, shifting her slightly on his lap so that her head was lower and her butt was perched over his right thigh at the perfect angle. “Someone needed to do this to you a very long time ago, girl.”
“No they didn’t!”
Each of her three words of complaint was met with three sharp slaps.
“Stop it! Stop it now!”
Her shouted commands were responded to with harder swats which jolted her body against his thighs. Addie started to realize that Adam wasn’t going to stop just because she told him to. He wasn’t going to bow to the force of her personality. That was something of a novel discovery which simultaneously intrigued and annoyed her. On one hand, she was utterly appalled that he was daring to spank her. On another, she rather admired his nerve. Those were two difficult responses to hold at the same time, and were both swiftly overridden as he took his next liberty.
“You need to learn how to behave,” he informed her as his fingers curled around the waist of her pants and tugged them down over her ample bottom. Addie let out a strangled squeal as her panty clad butt came into his view.
She felt a sudden flush of shame which made her want to reach back and cover her cheeks, but of course, that wasn’t allowed either. He grasped her wrists and pinned them at the small of her back, leaving her suspended from the fulcrum of her crotch over his hard thigh as he started to spank her again.
The slaps felt much harsher and sharper over less covered skin. The heat and thud of what had been little more than a warmup was much preferable to the way her skin sung with prickling pain as his hand landed again and again, making its way across both her cheeks, up and down until there was not a part of her bottom that wasn’t stinging.
The more he spanked, the smaller she felt. Her panties were drawing tight across her cheeks and between her thighs, putting pressure on her mound and the whole affair was beginning to feel very intimate.
Soon Adam’s fingers began to peel those panties down over her cheeks with a slow, almost teasing touch, distracting her from her questionable memories of men who could become wolves. Now all her attention was on her sore bottom, the heated skin which was being put on display for this stranger with the hard hand.
She opened her mouth to complain about him depriving her of the last scraps of her modesty, but for reasons she couldn’t rationalize to herself, all that came out was a soft little moan as he smoothed his hand over her bare cheeks in slow circles. The feeling of his skin against hers was almost comforting. It had been such a long time since any man had touched her. She usually ran off her boyfriends in a matter of weeks. Addie wasn’t sure she would be able to run off this guy if she wanted to. He was very… stubborn. Was that the word? No. More than stubborn. He was dominant. He was commanding. He wanted her bottom bare and so it was, no questions and no arguments.
You have been reading an excerpt from my latest shifter spanking menage, Taken By The Alphas
After an unexpected snowstorm buries her campsite, twenty-five-year-old wildlife researcher Addie Spencer is left scrambling for survival in a remote valley in the Alaskan wilderness. Exhausted and desperate, she takes shelter in a cave, only to witness a series of events so unbelievable that she promptly writes them off as a dream.
Addie awakens in the home of a man who introduces himself as Adam. Her handsome rescuer explains that since the snowfall has made the journey out of the valley impossible, she will need to stay with him until spring. Irritated by his commanding tone, Addie responds rudely to Adam, but to her shock he pulls her over his knee and spanks her bare bottom soundly.
Despite her fury at being punished in such a shameful fashion, Adam’s dominance ignites desires in Addie that she never would have expected, and soon she is begging for more as he takes her long and hard. Addie’s situation becomes far more complicated, however, when a huge, ruggedly attractive brute of a man named Armel confronts Adam and attempts to claim Addie for himself.
As events unfold around her, it eventually becomes clear to Addie that what she saw back in the cave was no dream. Adam and Armel are both shifters, one a wolf and the other a bear, and they both want her as their own. Will Addie be forced to choose between them, or can the two fiercely dominant beasts find a way to share their headstrong little human?
