Book 2 in the Power and Pain series
Stephen just needs a little time to himself. He’s tired of sharing every emotion with everyone in Sanctuary. He longs for privacy so he leaves the clan enclave. When Stephen is attracted to a human woman who likes rough sex, he decides to ignore all the rules he’s been taught.
Darla stands tied to a tree at an isolated campsite. She’s always longed to explore her dark side with a strong, dominant man. Stephen is sexy as hell, but he’s hard and controlling. She’s starting to question her decision to meet him in this isolated spot. He might be more than she can handle.
Stephen knows it’s dangerous, but really, this is something he does very well. What could be the harm in fulfilling Darla’s BDSM fantasies? He just has to maintain control of his powerful sexuality—not go too far—and he can show her how a little pain can enhance her pleasure.
Outside Sanctuary is an intense erotic story with a BDSM element. Stephen leaves Sanctuary to find some peace and quiet in his own head. Instead he meets Darla, a human. The attraction is instantaneous for both of them.
Darla’s tired of safe and gentle sex. She’s looking for someone that can take control and give it to her rough. Stephen’s so excited that he’s found a human that shares his desires for rough sex. In fact, he’s so excited he continually ignores all his clan rules.
Stephen finds out the rules are there for a reason, but he lets Darla share in his world for a little while. Their sex scenes are hot, erotic, and descriptive. I found the ending to be realistic of a one night stand or quickie.Cyna Kade did a nice job with this short story about a clan member’s exploration beyond Sanctuary.
