Educated by the Master in Cosmic Cabaret #SFRB Showcase
When Patsy first meets Master Trey, she’s amazed. He’s as much of a Luddite as you can be in the distant future. But that’s not all she finds remarkable about Master Trey.
This week I’m participating in the SFR Brigade’s Showcase with an excerpt from my sci-fi erotic romance novella, Educated by the Master. It’s now available for preorder in the Cosmic Cabaret anthology.
Release Date: October 10, 2017
Sci-fi Romance Anthology
A quick glance over her shoulder assured her every inch of the giant with piercing deep brown eyes was following her to the shuttle gate. Oh my gosh, he’s checking out my ass. Her cheeks heated. Why oh why did she have to have pale skin that showed even the slightest blush? Why couldn’t she have been born with dark amber skin like the delectable man behind her? Pull it together, girl. It’s a guy thing. Their eyes are naturally drawn to tits and ass.
An announcement stated boarding for their shuttle flight would commence in five minutes. Inside the gate seating area, Patsy turned to face Trey. “We have a few more minutes. Shall we sit, and ya can double-check that your bags have been loaded.”
Trey pulled a hand-comm from his pants pocket, held it to his ear, and made the call to the automated baggage handling system. After assuring the comm was off, he put it away.
“Ya use a hand-comm? Ya don’t see many people that do. I’d probably lose one, so my internal comm is a true blessin’. I don’t know how people lived in the past without an EBC. All my data is there at the tip of my thoughts. I was told everyone received nanite injections to build their internal server when they were infants.”
“I’m not a fan of tech. I like to keep things simple.”
Trey Johansson was even more intriguing than she’d imagined. “So, ya don’t have an EBC. Where do ya store information? How do ya know when someone is tryin’ to contact ya? Goodness. How do ya exist without bein’ able to connect with governmental systems? Bankin’ systems? Will there be a problem boardin’?” Why hadn’t he or Mr. Meryon told her this?
“Stop.” Trey narrowed his eyes and raised his hand. “Stop. Let me answer one question at a time.” In the pause that followed, Trey raised an eyebrow.
Oh, he wants me to acknowledge him. “Yes. Understood.”
A flush of pleasure went through her when he smiled. “Good girl. I have an EBC. Every child on Tallav receives one. I use it when necessary. My work-related data is kept on servers like most of yours is. You access it through your EBC. I use a vidscreen.” He patted his pocket. “My hand-comm signals me when I have a message. It tracks callers, just like your internal comm. I don’t like cluttering my mind. It destroys inner peace.”
He dropped his chin and looked at her as though he were expecting her to say something. But for a change she kept quiet. Her thoughts were bustling with everything she had learned about this man. That good girl was patronizing but so very BDSM master–like, especially coming from a hunk of handsome with a voice like smooth dark chocolate. She’d liked it. File that away for future reference on female reactions to Doms.
Educated by the Master by Cailin Briste
She’s new to kink. He’s a BDSM Master with eighteen days to educate her.
Trey Johannsen’s preference is to stick to managing a private BDSM club on Beta Tau. It’s dark. It’s sexy. The cries of pleasure, the thud of a flogger, and the mingled scents of arousal and fear are evidence he’s damn good at it.
So, when his boss insists Trey’s perfect for assisting a new hire to develop a BDSM cabaret, Trey is nonplussed. How the hell do you make burlesque accurate? Then he meets her, and instant attraction has him imagining peeling her clothes off, tying her to a bed, and sexually dominating her until she can take no more.
When Patsy O’Shaughnessy first lays eyes on BDSM master Trey Johannsen everything about him impresses her. Providing him a personal tour of the on stage and behind-the-scenes workings of the Cosmic Love Cabaret isn’t a problem. Withstanding the sheer sexiness of the ultra-masculine hunk while he educates her about BDSM? That’s going to take some doing.
Not that she plans to suggest hands-on training. No, the move from stage manager at the Cosmic Love Cabaret to creative director for a new venue is something she can’t blow. But if Trey Johannsen thinks experience is the best teacher, who is she to disagree?

Such a great concept. Good luck!!
Crossing fingers and working hard.
Interesting concept for the story, interesting excerpt about the future tech. Best wishes on the Cosmic Cabaret collection!
Thanks Veronica. I enjoyed the challenge of bringing my universe into the Cosmic Cabaret’s. I settled on doing a prequel for Master Trey’s book, which will be 4th in the series…when I get number three done. 🙂
Now to decide how I’m going to mess things up for them in the novel.
I can just imagine how having an internalized cellphone would be painfully disruptive.
It would definitely require some means of allowing only emergency calls through when you were sleeping.
Sounds like a super hot edition to the anthology. And yeah, like the other comments, I totally pictured The Rock. lol love it!
I have a crush on the Rock.
Have a feeling there’s going to be “hands-on training”, and that they’ll both like it.
I have a feeling you’re correct.
Gawd, I love ‘hearing’ the MC’s thoughts like this!
I like to know what they’re thinking. My characters are always willing to share with me.
Smexy Doms – nice! Can’t wait to get my hands on this set!
Yeah! I couldn’t find the right cover image to match Master Trey, but they won’t let me use Dwayne Johnson’s picture.
Woo-hoo! Can’t wait for all these great stories.
No kidding. This is going to be one stupendous read.
Got my copy pre-ordered. 😀
Me too! Even though I probably don’t have to.
Thanks. I think of Patsy as having a sparkling personality. She was fun to write.
Such a fun concept! Wishing you so much good luck with the anthology!
Thanks Pauline. It was fun to bring our own universes into that of the LS Quantum and Cosmic Cabaret.
