Excerpt & Giveaway ~*~ Delayed Penalty by Bianca Sommerland

Blurb ~*~

All choices have consequences, only sometimes they’re . . . delayed.

Cortland Nash fled Dartmouth to avoid being arrested for murder, but his best friend, Ford Delgado, is in danger. Cort returns, prepared to keep his head down, and do whatever it takes to keep Ford breathing, but when he finds a beautiful young woman out in the snow, frozen in fear, his plans change. He needs to make sure she’s safe—even if the greatest danger is him.

Akira Hayashi never thought she’d overcome her fear of men, but the care of an experienced Dom helped her achieve so much more. She’s embraced her submissive side, and found her strength as the captain of the Dartmouth Cobras’ Ice Girls. There’s nothing she can’t do—except function when she’s mugged in a parking lot. The intimidating stranger who rescues her makes her feel things she never thought possible. The only problem is his connection with Ford, a man she’ll hate forever because she refuses to feel anything else.

With the constant threats from the crime lord he once called “Dad,” Ford Delgado has no room in his life for love. Unfortunately, Akira already has his heart—which is split in two when he discovers Cort is dating her. The betrayal has him lashing out, trying to move on, to grow as a Dom, and free himself from Kingsley’s criminal empire. He tries to forget what Akira means to him, but one look into her eyes shows him the last thing she needs is for him to let her go.

Excerpt ~*~

Ford squared his shoulders and placed his hands on his hips, looking her over, his lips slanted in amusement. “You don’t really expect me to chase you around the cabin, do you?”

“How else are you going to catch me?” She skittered sideways in the opposite direction as he took a step around the table. His dark look had her shaking even harder and her cheeks heated as her panties became uncomfortably damp. She jumped as he strode toward her, scrambling to keep away, even though her body screamed for her to throw herself at him. Her tone was sharper than she meant it to be. “You’re not very good at this game.”

“Because I’m still trying to figure out how far you want this to go. What happens when I catch you, shorty?”

“You win.” She swallowed and braced to make a run for it. Maybe she was thinking too much. The limits would come in time. In this moment, all that should matter was one of her needs was being met. She didn’t have to give in. Ford would make her.

His next step had her tripping sideways, swiftly plotting her escape, but then his sharp tone made her freeze. “Stop.”

Trembling, she fisted her hands by her sides as he came to her. She yelped as he picked her up and dropped her on the sofa, the landing causing the air to whoosh out of her lungs. Before she could gather her wits and spring back up, he had her trapped.

“Cheater!” She laughed and slapped his chest, then bit her bottom lip, not sure if she’d gone too far.

He shackled her wrists with his hands and pulled them over her head, laughing softly as she squirmed beneath him. “I can’t cheat at a game neither of us wants me to lose.” Holding her wrists in one hand, he brought the other down to her throat with a light pressure that had her holding completely still.  “One day, during the summer, I’ll bring you out into the woods and let you run as far as you can. And when I catch you, I’ll take you right there in the dirt, no matter how much you struggle.” He spoke against her lips. “But we’re not ready for that yet. I wanted our first time to be somewhere a little softer than the floor.”

And there it was, Ford doing what everyone else did. Telling her she wasn’t ready. She ground her teeth and turned her head. “Softer is good. And you better be really gentle. Otherwise, I could shatter.”

“Gentle?” Ford moved his hand from her throat and reached down to undo his belt. He pulled it from his jeans in one smooth motion, then brought it up to bind her wrists. Then he flipped her over so she was kneeling on the sofa, her bound wrists held firmly over her bowed head. “I never said I’d be gentle.”

About the Author ~*~
Tell you about me? Hmm, well, there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while networking. Going out with my kids is my only downtime. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for a while—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.
