Alice is ready for something new, but gets more than she bargains for when she decides to tape a feature on “The Beaten Path”, a BDSM club. She tells herself it’s for professional reasons, but after meeting the handsome club owner and professional Dom, Victor, Alice realizes his dark and dangerous world has called to her for years.

Sample Chapter

Chapter One

Alice Chappelle tiptoed into the old Tudor mansion housing the local BDSM club.? Even though it was mid-afternoon and the sun was still bright out, the inside of the club was eerily dark.? The place was giving her the creeps, and had she not had an appointment at four o’clock, she would have left.

She turned slowly as her eyes became accustomed to the darkness.? There was just enough light to make out a stage, a large dance floor and some furniture ? tables and chairs and a padded bench with cuffs hanging off the sides.? A nearby wall held an assortment of titillating implements.? As she backed away from it, she felt something solid against her back and turned to see a cage suspended from the ceiling.? Reaching out a tentative hand, she touched it and stood watching for a moment as it swung back and forth.

"Hello, is anyone there?" she called out, willing herself not to bolt.? No answer.? Again her eyes were drawn to the wall with the strange display and she hesitantly walked over to take a closer look.? There was a rattan cane with a curved handle, what appeared to be a riding crop, a formidable-looking paddle with the words "Board of Education" inlaid on it, various whips, a martinet ? at least that’s what she thought it was ? with a handle and several thin strands that had some sort of metal attached to each of the ends.? Alice didn’t even consciously realize that her hands had gone behind her to cover her bottom.

"May I help you?" a deep, sonorous male voice whispered in her right ear.? Alice spun around, startled, to find herself face to face with a most unusual man.? A vampire, was her first thought, then she bit her lip at her own foolishness.? Vampires don’t exist, she reminded herself, although if they had, this guy would have fit the bill.? He was tall with dark hair that fell down to his broad shoulders.? His toned torso tapered to a slender waistline.? Even his clothing was old-fashioned ? a loose white shirt tucked into fitted pants that were tight in all the right places.? But it was his eyes that caught her attention.? They were a surprising light blue and shone in the darkened room.? There was something timeless about the man, although on closer inspection he looked to be about her age ? in his mid-forties.

Alice put out her hand and introduced herself in her most professional manner.? "Hi, I’m Alice Chappelle, the producer of Channel 2’s Talk Of The Town.? I have an appointment with Victor Priest."

The man took her proffered hand in both of his and held it for a moment.? Alice couldn’t help but smile to herself.? His hands were warm, ruling him out as one of the undead.

Stop that, now! she scolded herself.? You are not some teenage girl, hung up on the paranormal.? Pull yourself together.

"And you are?" she asked the unusual gentleman who still had a firm grip on her right hand.

"I am Victor Priest, and welcome to my little club, The Beaten Path.? Please come in, Miss Chappelle, and have a seat."

Victor studied Alice as he spoke, observing that she was a very pretty lady in her prime, who was just beginning to show the first signs of aging in the form of faint lines around her eyes and mouth.? He loved women at this stage of life.? They possessed a beauty that had ripened with maturity, along with elegance and vibrancy that came only with life experience.? But Victor sensed something else in Alice, a shy vulnerability that he found both intriguing and contradictory, given her profession.? Watching her as she’d glanced nervously around, he couldn’t help but wonder if she were a closet submissive.

Suddenly Alice felt terribly self-conscious as he led her to a waiting chair.? Mr. Priest seemed to be sizing her up, openly looking her up and down.? She had twisted her long dark hair into a sleek bun that morning, and now she found herself reaching up to check that it was still in place and wondered if she should not have left it down.? She adjusted her dark-rimmed glasses and tugged at the tight skirt of her dark business suit as she walked.

Stop fidgeting! she told herself.? It’s an interview, not a date!

"Do please sit down, Mr. Priest,"she said.? His standing was making her nervous, as if he didn’t intend for the interview to last long, but she had a list of questions about the club? and hoped the answers would give viewers an insight into why it might be popular.

"Tell me, Mr. Priest ?" she began, when he continued to stand.

"Victor," he corrected her.

"Victor, I’ve heard stories about this club.? What kind of people does it attract?"? She had pulled out a pad of paper and clicked her pen, getting right down to business.

Mr. Priest didn’t answer right away.? Finally, after an uncomfortably long pause, he spoke.? "The Beaten Path is a BDSM club that draws both sexual dominants and sexual submissives.? Society has made a lot of incorrect assumptions about the kinds of people we cater to.? Here they can be their true selves and have a safe place to play.? All play that takes place here is safe, sane and consensual."

"Do they tend to come in as couples, or is it a place where one can find someone to dominate or to–to submit to?" she asked, angry at herself for stammering.? She looked down at her notepad, avoiding the gaze that threatened to draw her in, and wondered if his magnetism would be as apparent on camera.

"The BDSM lifestyle can be a lonely one.? The people who are drawn here are quickly assimilated into the community.? It is very satisfying to finally find one’s people after living in a fantasy world for so long."

Victor’s speech was formal and old-fashioned.? He had an accent that she couldn’t quite place.? Alice sat scrawling on the paper, too distracted now to ask the next question and wondering why she’d even pitched this story, since it hit too close to home.? He could have been talking about her when he spoke of people living in a fantasy life. For so long, she’d been secretly attracted to BDSM, but only as an online voyeur who considered her desires a weakness.? To hear someone speak of it as a lifestyle caused her heart to race.

"Let me ask you, Alice ? how did you find out about my little club?" Victor asked.

"I remembered reading an article about the club in a Vegas Weekly a while back.? We are always looking for unusual people and businesses to feature on our show.? Why do you ask?"

"The people who are drawn to The Beaten Path usually find us on their own."

Victor studied Alice, trying to read her emotions.? His initial impression of her was that she was completely professional, but now she seemed scattered, nervous.? And he also detected something else:? dishonesty.? The article she was referring to had come out two years prior and had been a very small piece.? That she had chosen to follow up on it suggested that her interest was more personal than professional.? He decided to play along, pulling out a chair, sitting across from Alice, and crossing his long legs.

Alice glanced at him, adjusted her glasses, and continued:? "So let me get this straight–people who have fantasies about being submissive or having someone to dominate can live out their fantasies here.? Is that correct?"? She blushed, realizing she’d not gone beyond asking him to expound on her original question.

What’s wrong with me?

"Yes my dear, but it’s much, much more than that.? Here one can find their other self, their guide who will introduce them to a whole new world.? Would you like to give it a try?" Victor asked, hiding a smile as he watched Alice flounder, struck speechless by the unexpected directness of his question.

She fumbled with her notepad as she shook her head.? "No.? Of course not.? It’s not my cup of tea.? No.? I’ve never even thought about submitting to a man."

She glanced up to see a slow smile spread across his handsome face.? "I said nothing about being submissive or with a man, my dear.? You could instead be dominant with a man or woman."

Alice felt her flush deepen as she realized he was toying with her, and inwardly cursed her stupidity at allowing it.

You’re an objective professional.? That’s why you’re here, Alice. You can do this!

She decided the best tack was to refuse to acknowledge his game.? She forged ahead with the next question on her list.? "BDSM, is it just about the giving or receiving of pain?? Or bossing people around?"

"Actually, it isn’t about either.? BDSM is about an exchange of power."

"That’s an interesting perspective, Mr. Priest," she said, and forced herself to look at him.? "I don’t know if you’ve ever seen our show, but we like to inform our conservative local viewers about unusual activities going on in our city.? Do you think your club would be right for that?? Would you be interested in opening the club for a piece on what it is you offer?? It might help educate some people.? I know it would certainly get them talking."

"I don’t think I can help you, Miss Chappelle.? The members of The Beaten Path find their way here.? Most are very private, and I’m quite sure most would not be willing to allow themselves to be filmed.? Of course, I may be wrong.? Why don’t you stay and see for yourself?"

"I–I ? well, perhaps I could bring our show host, Katt Templeton, back with me tonight and see what she thinks.? Would that be all right?"

"It would," he said, thoughtfully.? "However, I strongly suggest that you at least attempt to blend in so that our patrons will not feel that they are being observed in too clinical a fashion."

"Of course, of course, no problem whatsoever," Alice reassured him, but then a thought occurred:? "Um, how would one dress to blend in around here?"

"Wear black," was all the help Victor gave.?

"Of course.? You can’t go wrong with black, right?" Alice asked, forcing a smile as she stood to shake his hand.? Once again he held her hand rather than relinquishing it, and Alice felt herself grow warm and flushed at the contact and then gave a little gasp as he leaned forward and kissed Alice first on one cheek and then the other.

"That is how we say goodbye where I come from," he explained.

"Oh ? well ? goodbye.? Until later." She mumbled a hasty thank you as she exited, relieved to finally reach her car.? Once inside, she reached for her Manilow’s Greatest Hits CD and pushed it into the player, her go-to selection for those times when she felt stressed or nervous.? Barry’s tender voice made her instantly relax, the strains of Ready To Take A Chance Again enveloping her like an old friend as she pulled the car from the lot of The Beaten Path.? As she drove, Alice pulled the band out of her hair, releasing the long tresses from the confinement of the bun and rolling down the window so the wind could ripple the long strands.

Alice almost laughed out loud at the idea of someone like her wondering what to wear to a BDSM club.? As a shy, quiet introvert, how did she get herself into this situation?? She couldn’t blame professional curiosity for this one; down deep she knew she’d been drawn to the story on a personal level.

But even as she cursed herself for what she’d gotten into, she was glad she had the power to pick and choose assignments.? Years ago, when she’d started as a go-fer to the station manager, she never would have dreamed that she’d eventually become executive producer of the best-rated program in the 10 p.m. time slot of their local market.

Part of the success that she and host Katt Templeton enjoyed with their show came from the controversial topics they explored.? They had seen their first boost when they’d featured a polygamist matchmaking service.? Then they’d done a feature on a lesbian prom.? The BDSM club piece seemed like a logical selection for their next story if they were to remain on top.

Alice dialed Katt as she pulled into the driveway of her house.? "I just left that club."

"Which one?" Katt asked, sounding distracted.? Wherever she was, it was very noisy.

"The BDSM one.? They suggested we come back tonight and watch the action, see if we can use it.? Are you up for it?"

"Sorry babe, I’m in L.A., remember?"

"Oh yeah, for Pride."? Alice nibbled her thumbnail as a wave of anxiety hit.

"You’re on your own with this one."

"But I’m undecided about this, Katt," she said, suddenly feeling less certain. Going back to face Victor Priest would be a lot harder without the security of her friend and co-worker’s company. " I’m not sure whether to go with this segment or not. Maybe I just won’t go back."

"I don’t understand what the problem is, Allie.? It sounds like just our type of programming.? Sign ’em up!"

Alice stared at the phone as the connection went dead.? Her heart sunk as she pounded the heel of her hand down on the steering wheel.? She was going to have to go back there alone.? And the room would probably be filled with men just like Victor.

She ran through the mental list of her friends, wondering whom she could coax into accompanying her.? Since her divorce, most of her married friends had already pulled away from her, as if her singleness was some sort of illness they could catch.? The idea of asking any of them to accompany her to a BDSM club suddenly seemed preposterous, and it occurred to her that now that she was single and had new worlds to explore, it was clearly time to make new friends.

Alice walked in the house to the sound of her landline ringing.? She picked it up without checking to see who it was first and groaned inwardly when she recognized her ex’s number on the caller ID.

"Yes, Ray, what do you want?"

"I wanted to drive up and see the girls this weekend and didn’t know if they’d be busy, so I thought I’d ask you."

Alice sighed.? "I don’t know if it will be OK, she said.? "I don’t know their schedules.? You’ll need to ask them yourself.? They are both eighteen, now, you know.? You don’t have to run these things past me anymore."

Ray’s next comment was predictable.? "I don’t suppose you’d go up with me to see them.? I tried to call you earlier but couldn’t reach you on your old number.? It was disconnected."

"I can’t, Ray.? And I got rid of my old phone.? I only use my business cell now, and I’m not taking personal calls, not for anyone, not even an ex-husband."? She put extra emphasis on the ex, to remind Ray that it was over.

"OK.? Fine."? Ray sounded sad, defeated, and Alice’s tone softened.? It was not her intention to be cruel, but she needed for him to understand that while they still had kids together, they no longer had a marriage.

"I’m sure we’ll see each other over the holidays," she said.

"Yeah, I guess."

"Look.? I’ve got to go.? Just call the girls."? Alice hung up the phone and put her face in her hands before bringing them up to run them wearily through her hair.? When she looked up, she saw her mother enter the room.

"Women over thirty-five shouldn’t wear their hair long," her mother reminded her as she walked past again, a cup of coffee in her hand.

"Times have changed, Mom," she said.? "Women over thirty-five are wearing long hair here in the twenty first century."

"Don’t be sassy with me, Missy" her mother called.? Alice caught herself rolling her eyes at her mother’s retreating back.? It wasn’t bad enough that at the age of forty-five she was once again living in her childhood home with her mother; now she was reverting to childish behavior.? Here she was, newly divorced and an empty-nester, juggling a job, the demands of two college-aged students, and a widowed mother who welcomed and needed her company.

But some days it was hard, especially now that her mother had taken to treating her like a rebellious teen.? Sometimes Alice felt like one, both in spirit and in body.? Her weekly yoga classes kept her in excellent shape.

"Was that Ray?" her mother asked.? "What did he want?"

Alice cringed; her mother knew she’d been talking to her ex.? She’d probably been eavesdropping.

"You know who it was."? Alice stood up to leave the room.

"Where are you going?" her Mom asked as she headed for the stairs.

?"I’ve got to shower and wash my hair.? I’m going out tonight." She could hear her mother huffing behind her as she bent down to take off her high heels and carry them up.? When Alice was halfway up the stairs, she turned back.? "What?" she asked.

"You shouldn’t leave me alone so much, you know," her mother pouted.? "I’m elderly.? What if I fell and broke something?"

Alice shook her head and started back up the stairs.? "Mom, you’re only sixty-five, and you do Zumba three nights a week.? You’re hardly ‘elderly’.? Remind me, and we’ll have this discussion again twenty years from now."

She stopped at the top and called down, "Besides, the last time I planned to stay home to spend the evening with you, you and your friends went to the casino to play Bingo!"

She missed her mother’s response as she headed into the bathroom, quickly stripping down and then turning on the shower.? Before climbing in, Alice took in her reflection in the mirror.? Even at forty-five, Alice still looked good.? Her skin was still smooth, with a healthy glow.? Her hair was thick and glossy.? She climbed in the shower, knowing she could take her time.? It was early, and most clubs never really got going until after 10 pm.? There would be plenty of time to eat, watch a little TV, and maybe even take a nap.

She gratefully enveloped herself in the warm shower spray and then laughed aloud at a crazy thought ? that perhaps she could bring her mother to the club.? Her mom was the most unflappable person she knew.? Alice could always tell her mother anything without fear that she’d react with shock or anger. But she knew it would not only be unprofessional ? but downright weird ? to bring her mother to The Beaten Path.

Alice ran her fingers down her body through the soapsuds.? She had lost twenty-five pounds from the stress of the divorce, putting her back at her high school weight of 125.? In fact, she thought her body was perhaps as good as it was back then.? Her abdomen was pleasingly taut, even if her breasts were now heavier and hung lower than they had back then.

After getting out of the shower and drying off, she critiqued herself in the floor-to-ceiling mirror on her closet door.? A tall, slender woman looked back at her.? She pulled the towel away and tried to look at herself through the eyes of a man.? Could she do it?? Could she get naked in front of a stranger?? If she was even remotely ready for such a thing, she supposed she could.? She was slender but far from fit, soft in places where she should be hard.? All in all, her reflection wasn’t too bad, but she made a mental note to renew her gym membership.

After drying her hair, Alice began to search through her closet for her black separates.? She pulled out her new skinny black jeans and a T-shirt.? Nope, too casual.? Then she remembered a dressy black top with long sleeves and black lace insets.? She usually wore it with its matching skirt, but it might work when paired with the jeans.? She pulled it on, wondering if its high collar was too modest.? Some cleavage would definitely bring this outfit into the realm of club wear.? She unbuttoned her first two buttons and then shrugged and unbuttoned two more.? Oh yes.? Much better.? A pair of dangly earrings and high spiky heels and that was it.? She was ready.

    Alice is a TV producer who has empty nest syndrome, her kids are in college and she is recovering from a divorce from her cheating ex husband. She does a TV show about a local BDSM club and meets a handsome Dom. I liked the fact that the characters were middled aged. This had some mild BDSM and erotic sex and was a sweet, romantic story.

  3. Debbie Theisen

    I could totally identify with Alice, a divorced empty nester looking at an uncertain future. She is truly at a crossroads, deciding between returning to her ex-husband, forging ahead on her own or exploring her sexuality further with her dark and mysterious lover. She sees many shocking things at his BDSM club which leads her on a journey of self discovery. The sex and dominance scenes are both sweet and spicy and I found myself totally immersed in the book, reading the entire thing in one sitting.

    Compiling a story for her local TV station Alice meets Victor, the owner of the local BDSM club. They are both dealing with heartache and sadness and are drawn together. Victor steadily exposes Alice’s submissive desires and as she becomes more aware and accepting of her own needs, Alice grows in strength and confidence. I enjoyed the character and relationship developments, and was heartened to see the growth and improvement of Alice’s relationship with her mother. A fun book that is gentle and caring and all about a mature couple.

    Alice is a recent divorcee who is also a TV show producer. Something deep inside of her leads her to visit the local BDSM club, “The Beaten Path”, and discuss possibly doing a segment on the club. When she meets the club owner, Victor, her first irrational thought is that he is a vampire. Victor’s first thought is that this shy woman is not truly there for a TV show – she is a natural born submissive just waiting for someone to show her the joy of submission. Alice struggles with emotions as her cheating, ex-husband, Ray, attempts to draw her back into his life which he has discovered is quite boring and lonely without his wife of 25 years. Alice must make the decision to either return to her safe, though unhappy life with Ray or to shake off the need for such safety and take a chance to discover who she really is. This book offers you a glimpse inside the running of such a club and gives you a quick look into the relationship between Alice and Victor. It would have been nice to explore more of the relationship between Alice’s best friend, Katt, who is a very strong woman not afraid to explore her inside Domme. It was a very quick read but I have the feeling that a sequel might well be in the works.

  13. Katy Beth McKee

    Alice is a strong woman who use the idea of getting a story to take a small step toward a secret interest. We quickly see that she is being drawn into what is offered.

    I loved the fact that this is a more mature heroine who is still learning to accept herself. We see her thinking evolve as she realizes that sometimes you can\’t settle just for the sake of comfort. She is brave enough to go after what she not only wants but what she also deserves.

    This was a thoroughly entertaining book. It’s about Alice a middle age divorcee who rediscovers herself through the generous help of a BDSM club owner Victor who is familiar with love and loss. Together Victor teaches Alice it’s ok to love and trust again. This was worth the read.

    This was an interesting story about Alice, who is a divorcee. Alice gets the tv station she works for to do a segment on a BDSM club and meets Victor. These two have an attraction and Victor wants Alice to explore. Alice\’s ex-husband is also trying to get back together and I wasn\’t thrilled that those two hooked up for a night. Alice\’s mom was funny and her good friend Katt gave her some really good advice. Victor and Alice seemed so good together.

These two have an attraction and Victor wants Alice to explore. Alice’s ex-husband is also trying to get back together and I wasn’t thrilled that those two hooked up for a night. Alice’s mom was funny and her good friend Katt gave her some really good advice. Victor and Alice seemed so good together.
