I’ve been hard at work on Rand: Son of Tallav and couldn’t resist giving a little taste to all of my readers patiently waiting for his story. He’s my favorite sadist, although Kolya in “The Key” runs a pretty close second.
Here’s the excerpt:
Randolph threaded his fingers into her hair and pulled her head back, noting the tears inching down her cheek. “This is our last session before I return you to your master. The pain you’ve experienced was not a punishment. You’ve learned your lesson and learned it well.” He brushed his finger through the damp trail on her cheek. “This was for me. Your tears are your gift to me. I’m a sadist, Eva. I enjoy hurting you. But I haven’t taken you over the edge of what you could stand. If your master sends you again, I will take you over the edge and break you. Do you understand?”
“Unnnhhh.” The sound flew from her lips.
Randolph jostled her head. “Say you understand.”
“I understand, Sir.”
