Trapped in a library during a blizzard, Elise finds herself stuck with the untoward magnate, Lucent Storme, who's rumored to have more than a few forbidden desires...
(A Cerys du Lys contemporary BDSM erotic romance novelette)
When Elise Tanner finds herself trapped with Lucent Storme in a library during a record-breaking blizzard, she panics. How did -he- get here? He doesn't know her, but she knows him. Lucent is the newly appointed Director of Public Relations for Landseer Enterprises and an influential business magnate; who wouldn't know him?
Elise knows him and she hates him. He seems false, fake, too self-important by far, and excessively demanding. Worse yet, with over six feet of snow expected and the streets completely unmanageable, there's no way for her to escape him.
She's heard rumors of Lucent's darker sexuality, too. He's predatory and dominant supposedly--definitely dominant, Elise finds out--but he seems like so much more, too. Lucent proves himself both intelligent and charming(though reserved and terse), much to Elise's surprise. Is there really more to this handsome, rakish, enigmatic man, or is it all a facade for His darker, more Absolute, Obsession.
(This scintillating contemporary BDSM erotic romance novelette of domination and submission is ~17,200 words in length)

He looked over at me and smiled. "While we're stuck here, we should make the best of it. Shall we play a game?"
The way he said the words, they sounded so sinful. And the look in his eyes as he watched me spoke of predatory tendencies. His lips twisted up in a lazy rendition of a wicked grin. He's a wolf in his mind, I thought, and I'm nothing but a lowly lamb. In his mind, at least, though not in mine. I didn't actually know what I'd consider myself. The thought struck me as odd.
"What?" I asked.
Lucent pulled a sealed deck of cards from his inside suit coat pocket and meticulously began peeling away the plastic wrapping, then slid the cards out of the deck box and started shuffling them. "Cards?" he asked. "Do you play?"
His voice was both inviting and insistent at once, as if he wanted to pressure me into joining him or else accept my fate as a lesser being. I frowned and sat opposite him at the table. "Yes."
"Good." He continued shuffling.
I squeaked out some sound of assent.
"Shall we raise the stakes?" he asked.
"We have no poker chips, though to be honest I find that mundane most times, anyways. A false sense of gambling is dull. Hm. Shall we bet something else, then?"
