Seductive Studs & Sirens {15}: Three is even better...

Once again it's time for Seductive Studs & Sirens.  This week I'm bringing you another tidbit from Healing Hark. This time it features all three of our heroes and picks up shortly after last week's snippet.  Enjoy and make sure to check out the rest of the peeps on the blog hop.


All the tension faded from Bryan as Hark ran the hilt of the flogger up one extended arm. A soft moan escaped Bryan.

“He's very responsive. I’m barely touching him.”
“Extremely.” Diachi stepped to the side to allow Hark greater access to Bryan's body.

“Good.” A wicked smile lit up Hark’s face. “It's great to find a sub who loves the flogger nearly as much as I do.” Using his free hand, he brushed Bryan's hair back. “Which means, even though I haven't learned all your personal hot spots yet, I am intimately familiar with how to drive a person wild with such a nice toy.”

Bryan's chest rose and fell heavily, when Hark flipped the flogger over in his hand to tease the tips of his fingers with the strands. “Fuck me.”

Other than the narrowing of his eyes, Hark continued his torment, sliding the flogger back down Bryan's arm. “Perhaps later. Right now I want to see how long it takes to push you to the edge.”

The sound of the leather hitting skin filled the room. Bryan jerked and drew in a ragged breath, when the leather strands found their mark on the tender part of his side directly under his arm. “Damn. A little warning next time, Sir?”
“Now what fun would that be?” Hark lightly swung the flogger again.

Can their love survive healing him?
Despite being in a long-term relationship with his Master and lover, Diachi Rai, CEO Bryan Sterling is feeling restless, and it all has to do with his Master’s former submissive. Ever since Harkalone “Hark” Akula entered their home, Bryan’s life has been turned upside down. He’s acting out, standing up to his master – even courting punishment. All because of his need to help Hark.

Diachi is a man of many secrets, and Hark happens to be one of his darkest. As his first submissive, Hark was partially responsible for molding him into the powerful but discerning Dom he’s become. But when he was unable to give Hark what he needed, Diachi let Hark go, rather than share him. Now Hark is back, scarred and darker than Diachi could ever remember him being, and in dire need of a healing touch.

Hark is at the end of his tether. After losing his family: his Dom, their submissive and child along with his home, all he wants is to be left alone, not dropped in his former master’s lap like a child. But now that he’s there, he’s not only tempted by Diachi and Bryan, he’s also being drawn into their world. The question now, is will he be able to stay?
