Exclusive Excerpt Spotlight: The Flirtation (The Submissive #10) by Tara Sue Me

The next novel in the highly anticipated Submissive series is releasing soon. I am thrilled to be able to share an exclusive excerpt from The Flirtation today. It’s officially time to get a sneak peek at Simon and Lynne. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.



The Flirtation 

The Flirtation (The Submissive #10) by Tara Sue Me 

Release Date: August 8, 2017


Tara Sue Me’s New York Times bestselling Submissive series returns with an irresistible erotic romance…

Lynne is happy working as Nathaniel and Abby’s nanny, but after they invite her to a group BDSM meeting one night, she realizes how much she’s missed the D/s lifestyle. She had a brief relationship with a Dom, Simon, but she’s never quite gotten over him breaking up with her. After the group meeting, she goes online to BDSM message boards and is surprised to find Simon is a frequent poster—and even more shocked at herself when she creates a secret identity and strikes up a conversation.

After messaging with a mysterious submissive online, Simon forms an immediate connection. As Lynne and Simon’s D/s relationship grows in intensity, Simon pushes to meet. But can their relationship survive after the truth is exposed, and Lynne’s identity is laid bare?


The Flirtation teaser


Daniel had mentioned that a bit of exercise would also help keep the symptoms of subdrop down. He’d told Lynne that was what she’d been experiencing when she’d cried and it was a common reaction to the endorphin drop after a scene.

As a whole, she didn’t exercise all that much. When she was in Delaware, the kids kept her busy, and in the city, she usually walked. But she thought she needed to walk farther than she normally did, so once she stepped out of the penthouse building, she headed away from school, toward an area of the city she didn’t often frequent.

Once there, she wandered around, feeling almost like a tourist taking in all the shops and caf├ęs that had been added since her last visit. She’d just passed an ice cream shop and was debating on whether she wanted to get a cup or a cone when she saw a new jigsaw puzzle store.

All thoughts of ice cream left her mind. She’d loved jigsaw puzzles in college. They’d provided an outlet for stress relief. In fact, she’d enjoyed them so much, she couldn’t remember why she’d stopped doing them. Probably when she took the job at the law firm. The long hours and almost nonexistent weekends hadn’t allowed for her to have much time for hobbies.

But now . . . She stepped inside and felt the same feeling she did when she walked into a bookstore. So many options to pick from. She knew she was taking one back to the penthouse; she just didn’t know which one.

Fifteen minutes later, she’d narrowed it down to two: a ten-thousand-piece New York City scene or an eight-thousand-piece puzzle of a painting that featured a medieval peasant couple. Deciding she would rather have the couple, she put the cityscape box back and started toward the register when the shop door opened and she stopped in her tracks.

Simon. Simon was here in the jigsaw puzzle store.

He didn’t see her right away. He was all smiles as he walked up to the counter to speak to the sales associate. It was clear from their conversation that he was a frequent customer.

She didn’t know how long she stood there, frozen, trying to decide if she wanted to withdraw deeper into the store or to place the puzzle on a nearby shelf and try to leave without being seen. Or if she wanted to stay right where she was so she could look at the all-male deliciousness that was Simon.

“Can I help you?”

A sales associate she hadn’t been aware of came up behind her. At the same time, both Simon and the guy he was speaking with looked her way.

“Ma’am?” the person behind her said.

Simon turned a bit pale, and his eyes grew wide in recognition. “Lynne?”

“Simon, uh, hi,” she said, feeling like the temperature had risen twenty degrees in the last thirty seconds. She lifted the box she was holding. “Just looking at puzzles.”

The corner of his mouth twitched upward in the slightest hint of a smile. “I see that. I didn’t know you enjoyed puzzles. And not the simple ones from the looks of it.”

“Oh, yes.” She nodded. “The harder the better. I like it hard.” F*ck. “I mean, I like them hard. The puzzles. Not anything else.” That didn’t sound right. “Except some things.” She realized she was staring at his crotch. “I, uh . . .”

Even the sales associates were stunned into silence. She set the box on a nearby table. “I’ll just, uh . . . yeah.” She ran out the door as fast as she could and headed straight for the ice cream shop.
