After insulting his own family's honor, Arov is bound to serve the Lakin family as their Djinn. Forever. Albina Lakin is a supernatural art restorer who is quite happy with the road that life has given her. Until the day her grandfather dies and her life is turned upside-down. He has given Arov one last command, to keep Albina safe no matter what the cost. Arov's freedom will only come when Albina Lakin breathes her last. But what if that is the last thing that he wants? When a demon begins to hunt Alby, Arov has to make a decision. His freedom or his lover. Will he make his choice in time?
The door to her room swung open as they approached. She waited until he had entered the room and closed it behind him.
“On the bed, please, Arov. Legs about a foot apart with arms wide. I trust that the restraints will hold you?”
“Yes, Miss Lakin.” His subservient mode was on full. He assumed the position that she had described and lay there, sullen and un-aroused. He was barefoot, but his trousers and shirt were still firmly in place.
She winced at his return to formality. Moments before she had been Albina, now she was Miss Lakin. Considering what she was about to do, this was not the mood she wanted him in. She sighed heavily. “Arov, this is my chance to give and take pleasure from you. Are you sure that you don’t want to help me?”
“It is humiliating to be powerless and trapped in this manner..” His voice was a sullen grumble.
“Now you know how I felt.” She climbed onto the bed and sat back on her heels. Their gazes caught and held as she tried to explain her loss of control at his hands, and her need to reciprocate.
Finally, a grudging acceptance flickered through his eyes. An arched brow challenged her to take what she wanted.
“Yes?” Although this was her will and not his, she still wanted his agreement.
“Well, um. I guess I should undress then.” “It usually assists in the process, yes.”
She blushed and fidgeted with her buttons nervously. “So you will offer no hindrance, but no help either?”
“Okay.” Quickly, before she could change her mind, she was off the bed and peeling off her blouse. The skirt that she wore pooled around her ankles as she release it. She kicked off her shoes, and Arov laughed as they hit alternate walls in her haste.
She blushed, trembling in confusion as she tried to think of what to do next. Then, closing her eyes in terror, she stripped off her bra and panties. She clambered back up onto the bed and blindly fumbled her way to Arov’s shirt.
Her eyes opened a tiny bit so that she could make out his burnished skin in a wavy blur. She wrestled open first one, then the entire row of buttons, exposing his chest to her eager hands.
She drew her trembling fingers down his chest and trailed it over the tattoos. He inhaled sharply at her touch, and she jerked her hands back in surprise. Her eyes flew open and she met his surprised eyes as she tried to still the shaking.
“You really are frightened, aren’t you? You won’t get very far like that. Come up here.”
Trembling, her breasts tightening up with the gooseflesh that rippled over her, she crawled up his body, keeping him between her knees. She straddled his hips.
Her hair flared violently with power and agitation, almost blinding them both as he whispered, “Kiss me.”
Taking a deep breath and slowly letting it out, she lowered her lips to his in a gentle kiss that soon had a soft warmth blooming within her. Between her thighs, she felt his body respond to her nearness and the gentle contact with her body.
It gave her the confidence to deepen the kiss. Slowly, her tongue crept out to duel with his, his lips opening beneath hers and welcoming her into his mouth. Suddenly he took over the kiss, turning it from a gentle exploration to a passionate ravaging in a matter of seconds.
She heard herself moaning and pulled away from him, blinking in confusion at the heat that was now beginning to beat a pulse in her belly.
He smiled at the look on her face and let the warmth in his own flesh transmit into his eyes. She smiled tremulously in return and began the task that she had set herself.
