THE GENTLEMAN MENTOR is a full-length standalone novel.
âYou need to be punished for that little stunt you pulled earlier. Making my dick hard and swollen like thatâ¦â He makes a grunting sound of disapproval, and my pulse spikes. I can read the need written all over his features, in his tight posture. The need to punish me is flaring inside him, and that excites the fuck out of me. Whatâs happening to me?
âIâm sorry, sir.â I blink up at him, my eyes communicating my own need.
âWhat should we do to settle this?â His firm hands settle on my waist, making my belly twist with nerves.
Boldly, I reach down between us, my hand curling around the weight of his shaft, that even soft, is heavy in my hand. âI could take care of this,â I offer.
His eyes sink closed for a moment, and I feel him begin to harden against my palm. When he opens his eyes again, his perfect control is back. âWould you like that, pet?â
I nod. âYes.â The idea of sinking to my knees before him and taking his heavy cock in my mouth makes me wet.
He shakes his head, telling me Iâve said the wrong thing, given too much away. âNot this time,â he says, then reaches for my throat.
Lightly circling his fingers around my neck, his lips graze mine. With his hands at my throat, holding me in place, he has my full attention, which I think is the entire point. His thumb strokes along the column of my neck, and he smiles slightly when he feels the insistent thrum of my pulse.
âBeing in trouble excites you. Naughty girl,â he remarks.
I make a small whimpering sound as the need to touch him, to kiss him, rises inside me. The masculine scent of his skin, the way he towers over me, even in my high-heeled shoes, the devastating look that says you will belong to my cock. Itâs all too much.
âHow much time do I have before I have to return you?â he asks.
I can see into the kitchen, to the clock on the wall. âI have forty-five minutes before my next appointment.â
âPerfect.â Placing a kiss at the base of my throat, Hale steps back and begins removing his tie as I watch in hungry anticipation the way he slides the knot free and pulls it from his collar. âTurn around.â
