It started with Piggy. It escalated with Kitty. It ends with Puppy.

For almost a year, Ethen O’Dowell has been locked behind bars and yet Puppy is far from free. A legal ward of her parents, she shares her bedroom with Pony, the only part of her old, submissive life that she has left… apart from the guilt, the fear, and the weekly punishments Ethen dishes out every time they visit him. Escape is all Puppy dreams about. Escape and somehow finding the courage to once more become the person she used to be–someone who lived life on her own terms and never let herself be afraid. Sadly, those days are long over, and as the old saying goes, there’s just no getting them back again. Or is there?

It’s a dead night at Black Light when ex-military man Carlson Garvey decides all he wants is a quiet drink and some downtime to practice his Shibari. What he isn’t expecting is the petite brunette who plops down at his table, squeaks out a terrified hello, and promptly flees again. There’s a story here and although he doesn’t know it, Carlson doesn’t need to. He recognizes a broken soul when he sees one.

Sometimes the only thing a broken person needs is the right Dom willing to intervene.

It was a mistake. She shouldn’t be here. The bartender knew it. Spencer certainly knew it. Was he still watching her? A quick glance over her shoulder said yes, yes he was, and any minute now she knew he was going to place a phone call to Jaxson and Chase and then she was going to be loudly, humiliatingly, irrevocably shown to the door.

“Are you okay?” Carlson asked, startling her from the terrifying direction her thoughts were forcing her to travel.

She looked up at him, nodding. “Yeah… yeah sure.”

“Are you lying to me?” he asked.

The craziest tingle ran right up her back, interrupting the shiver that had preceded it. Her breath caught all over again, but not for the same frightened reason it had before.

His tone was so soft, and yet that hint of a warning underlying each word struck her as comforting in a way that–had Ethen ever said such a thing–would not.

She shook her head, another lie.

He tipped his head, searching her face for what, she didn’t know, but when his gaze dropped from her eyes to her chest and stayed there, reluctantly, she followed the direction of his stare down to her hands. She had clapped them one over the other on top of her heart between her breasts, pushing hard as if it that desperate press were the only thing holding her together. It wasn’t her heart she was trying to keep working, though. It was her lungs. Her chest was tight; her breaths weren’t coming in right.

“Are you sure?” he asked.

She was shaking. Puppy stared down at herself, completely at a loss. She hadn’t realized how badly she was shaking until she looked down and saw it. She took her hands off her chest and stared at them, watching the wild trembling that refused to hold still.

She looked at him again, at a loss for what to say.
