It’s been a while since I last did a MM. Bathing is often a good time to mull over things, and with it might come the temptation. Iona, a conscripted servant, has just started work for Xane as a servant and found out he is a virgin claimer.
The wet room was small and there was no screen around the showerhead. The water splashed across the tiles and onto the floor where it drained into one corner. The steam quickly built up and an extractor fan, which whirled above her head, dragged the mist out of the air. Stepping under the nozzle, she drenched her face in the soft spray and took a deep breath.
Standing in the shower, her hand drifted down and over her navel, seeking out the folds of her sex, which by now had swollen. She slid two fingers between her labia and stroked, slowly and methodically. The water bounced around her, keeping her warm. She overruled the temptation to switch the thermostat to cold and end her little indulgence. Instead, she pivoted and faced the wall, pressing a cheek onto a cool tile and she stuck her bottom out under the jet of water.
Xane. Why couldn’t she stop thinking about him? His voice, the serious—dare she admit—sultry tone had eked out her obedience and compelled her to lie across his lap, and it continued to echo about her head as she created an imaginary scene where he ordered a faceless virgin to lie on a bed and spread her legs before him. With a low gasp of delight, she conjured up the ardent thrust of his hips and mellow moans from both their lips. Iona paired each swing of his pelvis with the gliding motion of her fingers up and down her slit.
She should hate Xane for doing this to her—making her sweaty in the shower and needing to explore her darkest fantasies. But, he’d bought her clothes and sent them directly to the door. He’d said nice things about her cooking and they were genuine, not contrived for her benefit. He spoke of his responsibilities and looking after her. How did that marry up with his disciplining hand and tough talk about wearing the damn collar?
What if he did spank her again? Could she be well-behaved for him all the time, keep her sassy mouth shut? She rubbed her clit harder and with her other hand caressed her left breast, pinching the nipple between her finger and thumb. Never. She’d be over his lap in a flash given her unswerving attitude. What if he couldn’t resist her, lying naked across his thighs, her hot cheeks turning bright red and her pussy on display? What if she couldn’t control herself and those pink lips ripened and filled out in plain view?
She circled her clitoris, pressing harder onto her mound, and gave her breast a squeeze. The orgasm came suddenly, making her knees shake and her toes curl up in the puddle of water at her feet. She moaned softly into the wet wall. She had to go. If she stayed, she risked having him take her and ruin her fidelity to her people, the Minorem. Forget the threat of spankings—he was more dangerous in other ways. What could be worse than having him seduce her?
Where could she run to? Xane had mentioned places Minorem went to socialize—bars? Perhaps there was an underground network of escaped Conscripti living clandestinely under the tower blocks. If she found others like her, she could hide with them. First, she had to creep out of the apartment.
When she is taken from her home and forced to work in the powerful city of Chandros to pay the debts of her small farming community, twenty-year-old Iona Meers is furious. After an intimate, humiliating medical examination conducted in full view of Chief Inspector Xane—the man she considers responsible for her predicament—her seething anger turns into outright defiance.
Having noted both Iona’s rebelliousness and her helpless arousal during her examination, Xane decides to bring her home with him as his personal servant. Iona’s disobedience quickly results in her being pulled over Xane’s knee for a long, hard spanking on her bare bottom, yet despite her best efforts to ignore her body’s response to his dominance, she soon realizes that there is a reason Xane is known among his people for his skill as a virgin claimer.
Iona’s longing for Xane’s touch grows stronger with each passing day, and yielding to his dominant lovemaking arouses her beyond anything she could have ever imagined. But when a long-buried secret from her past comes to light and calls everything Iona thought she knew about herself into question, will it strengthen her bond with Xane or tear them apart forever?
