He didn’t ask permission. He just made me his.
I didn’t think I needed Dimitri Kristoff’s protection, but it wasn’t up to me. With a kingpin from a rival family coming after me, he took charge, took off his belt, and then took what he wanted.
He knows I’m not used to doing as I’m told. He just doesn’t care.
The stripes seared across my bare bottom left me sore and sorry, but it was what came after that truly left me shaken. The princess of the King family shouldn’t be on her knees for anyone, let alone this Bratva brute who has decided to claim for himself what he was meant to safeguard.
Nobody gave me to him, but I’m his anyway.
Now he’s going to make sure I know it.

“I will always be in charge of you, Angelique. You and I are connected. There is no turning back.” As I yanked the thick leather from my belt loops, she struggled to look over her shoulder. Even in the dim lighting, I could see the surprise in her eyes, but there was so much more in her darkened pools of lust.
She pushed up from the bed the second I released my belt, her whimpers became more like provocative purrs. I raked my eyes up and down her luscious body as I folded the strap.
“Don’t spank me,” she whined, shifting her hips back and forth as if that would alter my decision. “I’ll be good. I promise.”
“You and I both know your promises are difficult to keep. You deserve this and you know it.” When I smacked the belt against her bottom twice, she opened her mouth, a strangled scream erupting. When I cracked it four more times in rapid succession, her body began to shake.
“Yeah, something for you to think about. You’re required to obey me and that’s exactly what you’re going to do.”
“I hate you.”
“So you’ve said. That doesn’t matter.” I smacked her several more times, making certain I hit her sit spot. She needed to feel the burn for at least a full day. The warm blush creeping along her naked skin was far too enticing. I could barely control my desires even though I knew she deserved the round of punishment.
“I’ll make sure and remember that.” Her words were said through clenched teeth, her entire body shaking, goosebumps popping along her long and beautiful arms.
I’d almost lost her. If I hadn’t known where the hell she might be headed, I would never have reached her in time. The moment Cristiano had made the call, a tremendous vacuum had rushed over me. For all the enemies we’d faced, the brutal battles that had taken far too many good soldiers, nothing had prepared me for the emotional level I’d felt in trying to find her. I’d been lucky more than anything, but the sight of her car hemmed in by the bastards had driven me to an entirely different state of mind.
I didn’t give a shit who they were or the ramifications of snuffing out their lives. It was a matter of necessity in order to make a statement.
She moaned, undulating her hips and kicking out her legs, but this time more out of protection. I caressed her skin, enjoying the heat building up in my fingers.
“Why are you doing this?” she whispered, her voice barely audible.
“Because you need to be taught a lesson and because maybe this will remind you that there are some very dangerous people out to take you away from your life. Permanently.” I rolled my fingers down the crack of her ass, finding it difficult to ignore her glistening pussy lips. The scent of her desire was prominent, wafting between us and I knew I wouldn’t be able to hold back for long. I released my hold on her hair, running the tips of my fingers down her spine.
“I don’t…” She dropped her head, panting then jutting her hips toward me.
