Ernest (Brute) Chalmers is Castle Wolves’ pack enforcer and best friend of Garth. make his move, he might miss out on his chance at love Out of respect for his friend, he has kept his feelings for Garth’s sister a secret. But when he over hears Lizzie talking about signing up for a 1Night Stand, he decides if he doesn’t, he might miss out on his chance at love.
Can Brute prove he has what it takes to meet Lizzie’s needs? Or will she send him packing for good?
Every night since he’d overheard Lizzie talking about signing up for a 1Night Stand, Brute had imagined this moment. He put his hand on the door handle and turned. The door opened to a room shrouded in darkness. Even with his shifter enhanced eyesight, he could barely see a thing. He could smell her though, her scent enticing as always.
“Remove every stitch of clothing and get on your knees.” Lizzie’s voice deep and sultry echoed around the room. He looked to the right where her voice came from, but still couldn’t make out any discernible shapes.
“You heard me, sub. Naked and on your knees. You have two minutes and I will not ask again.”
What the fuck! Did she just say sub?
Brute had no idea what he’d walked into, but her tone of voice indicated he wasn’t to argue. Without further thought, he stripped until naked and dropped to his knees.
“Now what?” he asked.
“Now you wait, you insolent pup. Eyes to the floor, in silence until I am ready.” Brute did as she demanded, a million different scenarios running through his mind as to what could come next.
He’d seen something like this once on a porn network. The movie had been called Mistress something, but it had been about woman who liked having men service her. The survey Madame Eve had required him to fill about his sexual preferences made a lot more sense now. What he didn’t understand was why Lizzie wanted this for her 1Night Stand.
The click of heels on the wood flooring echoed in the room and it was obvious she was coming his way. She stopped right in front of him. Her shoes just in his line of vision. Her gaze was on him. He could feel it like a physical caress and it had him wondering how long it would take before she figured out who he was. It also had his cock at full alert. He liked having her admire him, had wanted it for so long.
“Well, well, Madame Eve, did good.” Something ran up his left arm and across his chest. As it passed his line of vision, he figured out it was a riding crop. It then continued down his right arm ending with a quick flick on the tip of his cock. “Definitely a wonderful specimen. It still remains though to see just how good you are at serving your mistress. On your feet.”
Brute kept his eyes on the floor knowing the moment she caught sight of his face whatever was happening would stop. And as much as he was out of his comfort zone, he didn’t want to stop.
“Hmm, someone at least has some manners.” Slowly, she moved around him. Any second now she was going to catch sight of his tattoo. “What the fuck!” Yeah, he hated being right. “Ernest Alexander Chalmers turn around and face me right the fuck now.”
Brute cringed at the use of his full name. No one ever called him Ernest unless he was in trouble. He turned around as she asked. He expected to see fury in her features, but she just looked defeated.
“What are you doing here?”
He mulled over whether to tell her the truth or lie but he’d come this far no point in adding any more lies to the pile. “I’m your 1Night Stand.”
“No you’re not. Why would Madame Eve set me up with you?”
Brute took a couple of deep breaths before answering. “Because I asked her to.”
