Saturday Spanks - A Starlet in Venice

This excerpt is from my upcoming book A Starlet in Venice - the third and final book of my Nights in Venice series. It's a prelude to a spanking...

Context - Liam and Tia have been friends for a year. They find themselves falling in love with each other, but neither does anything to break the status quo. Until this scene...

Special Note: Have you read Starlet's prologue? I shared the full prologue in my WIP Wednesday post last week. Click for more of Liam and Tia.   


“He’s coming over,” Lucia whispered gleefully to me.

“My three favourite women in all of Venice,” Liam said easily as he joined us. His smile was so familiar to me, so untroubled. “May I join you ladies?”

“Please do,” Lucia grinned and Liam slid into the seat next to me. “We were just talking about sex.”

I could feel myself flush. Lucia wasn’t going to say anything, was she? I shot her a silent look of entreaty. I was going to die of embarrassment.

“In that case,” Liam grinned, “please, keep going. I want to peek at the fascinating discussions women have about sex.”

“Doesn’t the Dom of Casanova already understand what all women need?” I heard myself ask, my voice throwing down a challenge at Liam.

He looked at me, oddly intent. “The first rule of Casanova is that you don’t talk about Casanova,” he said. “It’s very much like Fight Club.” His eyes wandered over my body. “If you were a member, you’d be getting punished right now.”

Lucia was suppressing a grin. I didn’t know what devil jumped into me at that moment, but I looked at him. “I can play by the rules,” I said. “I can pay the price. Punish me then.” 


Every single man who looks at me wants to fuck me. To them, I am merely a sexy body, tits and pussy and ass, playing a leading role in their wet dreams. I am never anything more.

Except Liam. Liam Callahan wants only friendship from me, and I should be delighted. I certainly don’t want anything else from him. I don’t want to be bent over his lap and spanked. I don’t want to be tied up and flogged, and I definitely don’t want him to fuck me.

Do I?

Note: A Starlet in Venice is a stand-alone story, but part of the Nights in Venice series. Other stories in this series are of different couples. This story includes spankings, domination, graphic sexual scenes, and more.
