The Alpha’s Mark by Sassa Daniels – Extended Preview

Maddie’s intention had been to go upstairs and lie down for a while, but when she saw a set of car keys lying on a table by the front door, she couldn’t resist taking the opportunity to get away. She grabbed the keys and slipped out into the darkness. There was no car parked at the front of the house. She couldn’t remember seeing a garage, but there must be one. She took a moment to get her bearings. If she was correct, the dining room was somewhere to the right of where she stood. That’s where Finn would be, and she didn’t want to walk past the window in case she made a noise that alerted him to her escape. She headed to the left, her eyes straining to see what lay ahead as she rounded the side of the house.

There was another building back there, set apart from the house and she assumed it was the garage. As she made her way toward it, she started to wonder if she should turn around and go back inside. Sneaking off in the night like this was risky. She didn’t know the roads around here and had never been confident driving in the dark. Besides, a part of her wanted to stay. Although her rational mind harbored doubts about Finn, her instincts told her she was safe with him. He would protect her from harm, if what he claimed was true and she was indeed in danger. It was all so confusing, she wanted to scream.

As she stood there dithering over her options, the hairs at the back of her neck prickled. She didn’t hear anything, but she felt a presence. She whirled around, slamming straight into a hard masculine chest.

“Going somewhere?” Finn asked.

“I… uhm…”

Before she had a chance to formulate a response, Finn swept her up off her feet. She shrieked as he hauled her over his shoulder like a sack of potatoes and began to walk back toward the house. Maddie struggled to get down, but she soon stopped wriggling as he landed a hard smack on her bottom. She gasped in outrage but at the same time a thrill shot through her.

“I tried to play nice,” Finn said, the stern tone of his voice making her skin tingle, “but that’s not what you want. It’s not what you need, is it?”

Maddie had no idea what she needed right now. Every time Finn touched her, reason seemed to fly out the window. She allowed herself to relax as he carried her into the house and along the corridor. When they came to a room she’d not yet been in, he set her down on her feet. She glanced around what was obviously his study. A very traditional, masculine space, it spoke of power and wealth. She found it rather dark and oppressive.

“Take off your jeans, then bend over the desk, palms flat on the surface and bottom out,” Finn told her as he removed his jacket.

“What?” Maddie huffed out a breath of disbelief. “You want to play headmaster, is that it?”

“If you’re going to act like a naughty schoolgirl, it seems appropriate. Now, do as I asked, or I’ll belt your arse twice as hard.”

Maddie’s whole body went rigid. This was a pivotal moment and she knew it. When he spanked her in the back of his car, she’d had her hands bound behind her back. She’d been powerless to resist. Here, he was asking her to comply with his demands, to submit to punishment. She doubted he would let her choose whether to accept his discipline or not. She understood that he was going to spank her regardless, but he was letting her decide whether she would be a willing participant. It presented a dilemma. Once she did this, there would be no going back.

As she mulled it over, she spotted a photograph on the shelf behind Finn.

“Who’s she?” Maddie couldn’t stifle her curiosity about the raven-haired beauty who stood sandwiched between Ross and Finn.

“My sister, Sadie.”

He had a sister. That might explain the very feminine room she’d slept in last night.

“Where is she?”


The tone of Finn’s voice told her the conversation was over. She watched as he unfastened his cufflinks and slowly rolled up his sleeves. He unbuckled his belt and slid it out through the loops of his waistband. There was something deeply erotic about the action and the surge of desire that swept through her helped her make her mind up. If she didn’t submit to him, she would always wonder what might have happened between them. She quickly removed her boots, socks, and jeans and placed them in a neat pile. Then she walked to the desk, positioning herself as instructed.

“So, you can do as you’re told,” Finn murmured as he stroked a hand over her bare bottom. She wriggled her hips in response to his touch. “How hard should I punish you for breaking not one, but two of my rules?”

Maddie looked over her shoulder and her confusion must have been evident.

“You failed to come for dinner, and you left the house without either myself or Ross. I suppose if I was going to be harsh, I’d add that you aren’t appropriately dressed either.”

That hardly seemed fair. She hadn’t changed her clothes because she didn’t intend to join him for dinner. Maddie scowled, and Finn gestured for her to turn around. She moved to face the front of the room once more.

“Let’s call it fifteen with the belt, shall we?”

Having never been thrashed with a belt before, Maddie had no idea if that was a lot. She had no clue how much more it would hurt than being spanked with his hand had last night. She’d borne that punishment well, but she had no idea what her limits were yet. Her interest in this sort of discipline had only recently come to light through her increasingly erotic dreams. It wasn’t something she’d explored in reality—until now.

“Okay, Finn,” she agreed. “Whatever you think is best.”

Her words might have sounded like she was ceding control, but Finn suspected she was simply playing along for now. An independent woman like Maddie wouldn’t submit completely until some trust was built between them. Even then, she would likely challenge him at every turn, and he preferred that she did. A docile mate who never stood her ground would be incredibly dull.

He doubled over the belt and snapped the two halves together, startling Maddie. The way she jumped made his cock stir. Tension radiated from her, but it wasn’t just fear he smelled as she shifted, parting her legs wider. There was intense arousal there also and it was hard not to respond to that. He had to hold his wolf back from claiming her on the spot.

“Loosen those cheeks,” he said, tapping them lightly as he drew her shirt up to bare her bottom.

She immediately unclenched her buttocks. Finn drew his arm back and brought the belt down on the roundest part of her backside. It made a dull thwack.

“One,” she squeaked, letting him know it had made an impact but hadn’t hurt her.

He struck again, a bit harder this time, and there was a satisfying crack as her flesh wobbled.


She’d felt that one—there was more of a whimper in her voice this time. Finn hadn’t come close to unleashing his full strength but already her skin was tinted with a deep pink hue. By the time he got to the fifteenth stroke, she’d be glowing crimson. His pulse spiked at the thought of it.

The next blow hit its target on her right butt cheek, and she lifted herself up on her toes, giving him a clear view of her glistening pussy. His cock strained against his pants now and he took a moment to adjust his stance to alleviate the discomfort.

“Three,” Maddie said after a long pause.

Her voice was definitely beginning to sound strained and he wondered if she might have a low threshold for pain. He’d spanked her hard in the car last night, but his hand didn’t have the same sting as the stiff leather of his belt. He brought the strap down on her bottom twice in quick succession and she yelped out the numbers four and five. Although her face was turned from him, it was clear she was crying from the way her shoulders shook. Her flesh had turned a deeper shade of pink and he reached out to caress her bottom gently. He murmured reassuringly to Maddie as his fingers ran over her heated derriere, trying to take away a little of the ache.

“Good girl,” Finn soothed. “You’re doing well.”

“It hurts.”

She sounded so small, lost almost. Finn wanted to gather her into his arms, but he resisted the urge. He needed to show her who was boss, and it was too soon to let her off the hook for her bad behavior.

“I know it hurts, sweetheart, but it wouldn’t be much of a deterrent if it didn’t.”

She gave a slight nod, which he took as acceptance and a sign he should continue.

He aimed for a spot high on her left butt cheek that hadn’t received his attention so far.

“Six,” she wailed and then, as the belt smacked off the right side of her bottom, “seven.”

Finn paused. He could tell Maddie was getting close to the limits of her endurance. The punishment was intended to get his message across, and a degree of harshness was necessary, but he had no desire to push her to the breaking point.

He put his hand on her shoulder and squeezed reassuringly. “Do you need a minute?” he asked.

She stood and turned to him with tear-filled eyes that held a surprising amount of resolve.

“No,” she replied with conviction. “I want this over with.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yes,” she spat, her vivid amber eyes flashing. “Get on with it.”

His jaw clenched at the nerve of her giving him commands, but he let it go. She was clearly upset and trying to be brave and he wasn’t going to add to her punishment for that.

“Very well,” he said. “Get back in position and we’ll continue.”

Maddie placed her palms back on the desk and bowed her head so low it was almost touching the cool wooden surface. Already she was questioning whether she should have taken the break Finn offered her. She wasn’t exactly keen to have him hit her with that belt again, but she wasn’t sure a timeout would help. She was new to this and couldn’t see how a couple of minutes would lessen the throbbing ache deep in her flesh. Surely getting it over with was the better option.

As the leather strap whistled through the air once more, she braced for the impact. The sting was greater than before, and her face contorted into a pained grimace.

“Seven,” she hissed through clenched teeth.

“That was eight.”

“Eight,” she amended. It was lucky Finn was keeping count as her mind was scrambled. An overload of different emotions made it hard to think straight. She was ashamed and aroused all at once. She hated the sting of the belt but loved yielding to Finn’s dominance. Putting herself in his hands was freeing, yet she worried she was losing the strong, independent streak that defined her personality.

She wiggled her bottom, but it didn’t help alleviate the soreness. Clenching and unclenching the muscles had no effect either. A hand placed firmly at the small of her back told her to stop moving. Standing as still as she could, she held her breath and waited for the belt to land again. It struck on the right side and lightning zapped through her, forcing her up onto her toes.

“Nine!” she screeched.

Tears began to roll down her cheeks. Her bottom felt like it was on fire. Each new stroke of the belt seemed to lay another heated stripe over the last. She’d be surprised if her skin wasn’t scarlet by now. The belt cracked down across the full width of her bottom and her eyes widened as she shrieked out the number ten. She dropped her head down onto the desk and sobbed. The buckle of the belt clattered on the desk as Finn laid it down beside her and eased her into a standing position. She looked up at him in question.

“I think that’s enough punishment for one night.”

Maddie nodded quietly and stood still as he wiped the tears from her face. She couldn’t say she would never displease Finn again but, for now, she would be more careful to follow his rules. As his fingers stroked her cheek, she couldn’t help but lean into his palm, seeking reassurance.

“Would you like me to help you forget about the pain?” Finn asked.

The gleam in his eye told her exactly how he intended to do that, and Maddie’s pulse sped up at the thought. Some distraction seemed like a good idea. She lowered her lashes and then looked up at him in what she hoped was a seductive manner. Flirting wasn’t something she’d had much practice at, and she was gripped by self-consciousness as Finn studied her face. The corner of his mouth twitched, and she was sure he was about to laugh at her. Then, suddenly, he bent his head and kissed her.

His mouth claimed hers in a manner that could only be described as savage. There was nothing tender about the determined way his tongue swept into her mouth. Maddie pressed her lips hard against his, trying to match his sensual ferocity. There was only one dominant force here, though, and it was Finn. All she could do was grasp his shoulders and hold on for the ride.

When he suddenly pulled away, a whimper of protest escaped her but then, as he spun her around and bent her over the desk, she gasped in delight. Her heart skipped a beat as he kicked her feet apart, spreading her legs wider. The sound of a zipper being lowered came from behind her. She shifted restlessly from side to side.

“So impatient,” Finn chided.

A moment later, he drove his cock into her in a single thrust that made her eyes roll back. He held himself completely still, giving her time to adjust to the feeling of fullness.

“So tight,” he said, “a perfect fit.”

Then he began to move, slamming into her hard. He gripped her hips and pulled her back to meet each thrust as he drove into her. His flesh slapped against her inflamed bottom and she moaned. Pain and pleasure intermingled, and her clit throbbed with need. She lifted her hand from the desk, intending to touch herself, but Finn must have realized what she was about to do. He paused and grabbed her wrist, drawing her arm up around her back. His grip was tight enough for her to feel his disapproval, but not so much as to cause her pain.

“Another rule for you, sweetheart; your pleasure comes only from me.”

He let go of her arm and she placed her palm back on the desk. Lesson learned. Wrapping a hand around her waist, he pulled her toward him. He fucked her harder now, slamming ruthlessly into her desperately needy body.

“Please, Finn,” she whimpered.

Seeming to understand what she needed, he slid his hand down to tease her aching clitoris. He circled his finger around the swollen bud and then pinched it. With a shriek, Maddie came. Her pussy clenched around Finn’s massive cock, squeezing him tight. He barked out her name and her channel was flooded with his seed.

Flushed with ecstasy and utterly breathless, Maddie looked back at Finn as he carefully withdrew from her quivering body.

“That was incredible,” she said when she’d recovered her wits.

“That,” Finn replied, a wicked grin forming on his lips, “was just the beginning.”

He held his hand out to Maddie and she took it without hesitation. Whatever thoughts she’d had earlier about fleeing had been well and truly put to bed. There was something right about the way he wrapped his fingers around hers. She belonged with him and she followed willingly as he led her from the study and along the corridor to the stairs. Her heart beat in a quick, steady rhythm as they climbed the steps and headed toward the room she’d slept in last night. To her surprise, they walked right past and went to a door a little farther along the passageway. Finn opened it and gestured for her to enter the darkened room. The door clicked shut and a tantalizing shudder wove its way down her spine as she sensed Finn’s nearness.

Then, suddenly, the lights went on. Blinking to adjust to the sudden brightness, Maddie looked around, trying to get a picture of her surroundings. There was no doubting this was Finn’s bedroom. With dark, solid furniture, deep red carpet, and matching drapery, it exuded masculine power. The bed at its center was enormous. It didn’t take much imagination to see the possibilities its design presented. With a latticed head and footboards it was ideal for binding a person in a variety of ways.

“Take this off.” Finn tugged at the sleeve of her shirt as he came to stand in front of her.

With trembling fingers, Maddie began to undo the buttons. When she’d removed her jeans earlier, she’d done it in a perfunctory manner but now she tried to be sexy. It felt out of character. She’d never undressed for a man like this. Then again, she was doing a lot of things for Finn that were new to her. She’d had boyfriends in the past, a couple of them serious, but she had to admit her sex life had been of the lights off, under the covers variety. Stripping as Finn watched made her feel vulnerable until she saw the deep desire in his eyes. Then she realized it gave her power.

When she finished unfastening the buttons, she slipped the shirt off her shoulders. Her attempts to look seductive faltered as she got caught up in sleeves. She shook off the garment and let it drop to the floor. She stood there, feeling flustered in just her lacy white bra and waited for instruction.

“That too,” Finn said.

She reached behind her and fiddled with the hooks and eyes for a moment. Man, she was bad at this. As she removed the final barrier to complete nakedness, she bit her bottom lip and clasped her hands in front of her, unsure what to do with herself. Finn walked around in a circle, his fingers trailing over her skin, bringing each nerve to life.

“Beautiful,” he commented, and her cheeks flushed at the compliment. “Now, kneel.”

The command caught her off guard but even as her brain struggled to come up with an objection, she sank to the floor. She tried to adopt an elegant pose, straightening her spine and holding her head high, but she felt self-conscious kneeling naked before Finn like this.

“Good girl.” His praise reddened her cheeks even more. “Stay there.”

Unbuttoning his shirt, Finn walked to the other side of the room. He took off his shirt and laid it over the back of a chair before removing his shoes and socks. His pants and underwear quickly followed. Maddie’s heart fluttered. The man had an impressive physique. Even when he was wearing a jacket, it was obvious, but seeing him in the flesh was something else. He was tall, muscular, but not bulky. His thighs were thick, powerful, but as he turned in her direction, her eye was immediately drawn to the massive erection he sported. Had that thing really been inside her? It hardly seemed possible.

“Come to me,” Finn said.

As Maddie started to get up from the floor, he tutted.

“No, I want you to crawl.”

She sank back down to her knees and looked at him in disbelief. “You’re kidding?”

He shook his head slowly. His eyes narrowed, and she knew he was deadly serious. Maddie thought about it for a moment. Refusal to follow his orders would probably result in punishment and her bottom was already sore. She could get up and leave—she was closer to the door than him—but he would be on her in seconds if she tried to run. Obeying him was the most sensible course of action. It was no easy thing to crawl to him, but she suspected the rewards for demonstrating her submission to his will would be incredible. The man knew how to coax pleasure from her body. She could sit there and agonize over the decision until the cows came home, or she could just get on with it. Biting the bullet, she got down on all fours and started to crawl.

When she reached Finn, she sat back on her heels and waited. There was a half-smile on his lips and approval shone from his eyes as he placed a finger under her chin and brought her gaze up to meet his.

“Good girl. Now, hands behind your back and suck me.”

Maddie licked her lips nervously and shuffled forward on her knees. She clasped her hands behind her back and her breasts were thrust out in front of her. She opened her mouth wide and took the bulbous head of his cock into her mouth. This wasn’t something she’d had much practice at, so her movements were tentative at first as she took him a bit deeper. She swirled her tongue around his shaft, feeling the rigid lines of protruding veins. Angling her head back, she was able to take move of him before sliding back until his cock almost popped out of her mouth. As she drew him in once more, Finn groaned with need.

Enveloped by his masculine scent as she gently suckled his turgid flesh, she felt a gush of moisture to her pussy. Never before had she been so turned on by the thought of giving a man pleasure. The gruff sounds coming from Finn spurred her on and she sucked a little harder. He gave an agonized moan and fisted a hand in her hair. It seemed he was seizing control.

Using the hand gripping her to hold her in position, he slid his cock deep into her mouth. As it slipped over her tongue, toward the back of her throat, Maddie’s eyes widened. He held himself still for a moment and she took a couple of panicked breaths through her nose, which made her feel lightheaded.

“Relax.” The word was clearly a command. “I won’t hurt you.”

For reasons she couldn’t explain, Maddie trusted him. She stilled her mind, clearing away the anxiety about choking, and loosened her jaw. He slid out and back in experimentally, his eyes on hers the whole time. She knew he was checking her reactions for signs of distress and that made her feel safe. When he seemed sure he was causing her no discomfort, he began to push his cock in and out of her mouth at a steady rhythm. Maddie moaned and squeezed her thighs together as her pussy spasmed. She rocked her hips, trying to find a way to grab hold of the sensations and carry herself to a climax, but it was no use.

Finn’s movements became more erratic and she sensed he was losing control. He barked out something incoherent and came down her throat. Maddie swallowed hard as he withdrew. Before she could catch her breath, he pulled her to her feet and gathered her up into his arms. He carried her to the bed and tossed her down onto it. She yelped as her poor, punished bottom hit the mattress. She looked up at Finn, dazed, as he opened a drawer in his nightstand. Her pulse raced as he brought out two long black strips of silk.


His tone left no room for argument. Maddie immediately held her hands out to him. He gave a little chuckle and she realized the way she’d placed her wrists together was an open invitation to bind her. The silk was cold, smooth as it wrapped around her skin. Finn pulled her arms up over her head and tied the loose ends of the ribbon to the headboard. Maddie had to admit she liked how it felt not just physically, but psychologically, to be bound and helpless. It took the decision-making process away from her and that was surprisingly freeing.

“I’m going to blindfold you,” Finn said as he held up the other piece of silk.

He wasn’t looking for her permission, but Maddie nodded anyway. She closed her eyes and allowed him to fasten the blindfold in place. As all light was shut out, she tested how tightly she was bound. Her heart raced as realization struck her. Finn could do whatever he wanted to her now and there was nothing she could do to stop him. If this was a trap, she’d walked into it willingly.

As Finn studied Maddie carefully, he couldn’t help but experience a flush of pride at the knowledge she was his. Every inch of her was perfect. He loved her breasts, their rosy peaks. Then there was the slight swell of her belly and those gorgeous hips. She wasn’t skinny like most of the women who’d flaunted themselves in front of him over the years. They’d left him cold, but he couldn’t get enough of Maddie’s amazing body. With curves like those, she’d be the envy of any 1940s pin-up girl. Her skin was soft with a healthy glow and her lips a luscious pink. There was something ethereal about her features and even though he couldn’t see them right now, he had a vivid image of her beautiful amber eyes in his mind. With her golden hair fanned out on the dark red pillow, she looked like a goddess.

He watched as a deep crease furrowed her brow. Her face was so expressive it gave away all her innermost thoughts. He could imagine the internal debate going on in her head right now. Being bound and blindfolded was not the norm for her but she wanted to submit. She wanted to please him and accept the rewards he had to offer in return, but she feared losing her independence. It was only natural, but she really had nothing to worry about. As long as she was mindful of his rules, he had no problem letting her be her own woman. In fact, he preferred that to the idea of her becoming some mindless sex slave.

“Spread your legs for me,” he instructed. She’d done an incredible job of sucking his dick, even if she’d been tentative at first, and he wanted to return the favor.

Maddie hesitated and actually squeezed her thighs together as though trying to shut him out. A dozen different expressions seemed to form on her face in quick succession and then she relaxed and parted her legs.

“Good girl. Now, bend your knees and place your feet flat on the bed.”

She did what he asked immediately this time, moving into a position that gave him an even better view of her gloriously wet pussy. He ran his fingertips slowly along the inside of her leg and she shifted beneath his touch. When he reached her inner thigh, he caressed the silken skin there for a moment, loving how soft it felt beneath his hand.

“That tickles,” Maddie complained, but what she really meant was that it was turning her on.

Finn buried his face between her thighs and the heady sent of her arousal filled his senses. No matter what doubts might be milling around inside that brilliant mind of hers, she responded well to his brand of dominance. He enthusiastically lapped up her juices and she let out a squeal of delight. As he licked more firmly, she squirmed on the bed, lifting and then lowering her hips. He couldn’t tell if she was trying to get away or move closer. She probably didn’t know herself which it was. He placed a hand on her abdomen to hold her down as he plunged his tongue into her tight channel. She writhed and moaned but he held her down firmly as he moved his attention to her clitoris. The swollen bud pulsed as his tongue circled it. Then he wrapped his lips around it and sucked gently. Maddie clamped her legs around his head, and he grinned at her wantonness as she tried to extract more from him.

Happy to oblige her demand for relief, he slid two fingers into her sopping wet cunt and then curled them toward her g-spot. He knew he’d found the right place when her legs began to shake. She panted and moaned as her body carried her toward the peak of ecstasy. Each little sound that came from her seemed to go straight to his painfully erect cock. He grazed her clitoris lightly with his teeth and she went wild. Her hips bucked up off the bed and he sat back, continuing to fuck her with his fingers as she convulsed helplessly. Her pussy clamped down and he pulled his hand away as she came with an ecstatic shout. She thrashed about on the bed for several moments before finally stilling. A light sheen of sweat glistened on her skin.

“You’re beautiful when you come,” Finn told her.
