The steamy-hot story that begin in Bound to Him continues in Bound to Fall.

Carol is happier than she can ever remember being as Jonathan’s submissive. The more they explore, the more of herself she opens to him and to herself. However, as they become more intimate, keeping the boundary that Jonathan gave her in the beginning – the boundary of not falling in love – becomes more and more difficult. How can she keep her heart safe while continuing to open it? And who is it who knows about their relationship and seems determined to disrupt it?

Bound to Fall contains consensual but intense BDSM scenes, in a romantic erotic setting.

Sample Chapter

Prologue

I rolled over and reached for Jonathan, but his side of the bed was empty. Sitting up and rubbing my eyes, I realized that the shower was running, and I smiled. He had let me sleep in, which was a welcome treat after the previous evening?s activities. Our last night in New York had been quite an exciting one. I stretched my sore muscles and inspected my naked body. Yes, there were marks, but they would be hidden by my work clothes. Still, I blushed as I remembered how exhilarating it had been to be under Jonathan?s control, knowing others were watching.

?Defying Gravity,? he had called it, in honor of the musical we had attended earlier in the evening. And I had felt as if I was flying in more ways than one, suspended by ropes, bound, blindfolded, and subjected to Jonathan?s torturously long arousal before he finally gave me permission to let go and soar. Then, when we had arrived back at the hotel, he had stripped me and fucked me until we were both exhausted. My face grew hot from the memories, and I had the irresistible urge to enjoy a shower for two.

The bathroom was filled with steam, and I had to catch my breath as the heavy air enveloped me. The shower?s spray covered up the sound of the door, and I bit my lip to keep from giggling as I walked toward the shower, wondering how quickly I could whip the door open and jump in behind Jonathan to surprise him. Maybe we had time for just a bit of fun before we had to pack and check out of the hotel. I was about to reach for the door when a sound stopped me. Jonathan started singing.

I stood completely still and held my breath. I had never heard him sing in the shower. He had a deep voice, a little rough but in tune. He was singing a song from one of the musicals we had attended, and he was obviously oblivious to my presence. I placed my hand over my mouth and wiggled a bit, amused and impressed by the song. I wondered if he was using his razor as a microphone. A plan formed in my mind, and I anxiously awaited the song?s ending. He held the last night for longer than I thought human lungs capable, and then he stopped. At that instant I swung the door open wide, smiled, and shouted, ?Bravissimo!?

?Fuck!? Jonathan whirled around and dropped the soap. His eyes were wild for just a moment, and then he narrowed them. Before I could speak again, he grabbed me by the wrist and pulled me in against him, smacking my ass. ?I ought to spank you for that, girl,? he said gruffly. Then he looked around me and grinned. ?You made me drop the soap. Why don?t you bend over and pick it up for me.?

Chapter 1

?Glad you?re back, Carol,? Hal said enthusiastically on Monday morning. ?I am glad to hear things are better, and it looked like getting away for a few days agreed with you. We?ve missed you around here though.?

?I appreciate that, Hal.? I smiled. Hal went back into his office with a final wave, and I steeled myself for the mountain of paperwork and emails I was bound to face in my own office. It felt strange to be back in a way; I was such a different person in some ways than I had been before I left. I hung my suit jacket on the stand by my door and opened the blinds to let in the sun. My mini fridge was still well-stocked with Diet Cokes, and I took one out, opened it, and took a long sip, savoring the bit of quiet. It wasn?t 8:30 yet, so most of the office had not yet arrived.

?Bless you,? I breathed as I sat at my desk. I had definitely chosen the right coworker to help me out in my absence. She was fastidious to the point of being OCD at times, and all of my correspondence, the work she had done, and my files were in folders, which were clearly labeled, along with a neatly written note welcoming me back. It really was a nice place to work, and I wondered why I had spent the last few months being discontent. Maybe the lack of focus and emptiness I had been trying to fill in those old ways had affected my attitude about my job too. I shook my head. It was amazing how centered I felt after such a short time on this journey. Jonathan had told me that it was normal to have this ?all is right with the world? feeling at first and that I would likely ?come down? at some point, but I was going to enjoy it while I could.

While waiting for my laptop to come to life, I checked my voice mail. There were a couple of calls from clients, but nothing too pressing. A printer called to say that the materials I had ordered would be ready on Tuesday. And there was a call from my almost-ex, asking if I was okay. I stifled the urge to roll my eyes. He had known I would not be at work. There was also a message from Jonathan, left at 6:30 a.m. this morning. I smiled as I listened to his voice.

?Morning, girl. I was very pleased to see that I had an email this morning. I am proud of you and look forward to hearing from you today. I know you will be busy. Have a good day, Carol.?

I deleted all but Jonathan?s messages, chuckling a little at the school-girlishness of saving it, but knowing I would listen to it more than once. There was just something about his voice?..Hell; there was just something about all of him. My body tingled just thinking about him, so I tried not to, at least not until I had got some work done. I would focus on work until lunch time and then return his call.

At 12:30 I stretched and closed my laptop. I had made a serious dent in my to-do list and had been surprisingly less distracted than I had expected. I picked up my cell phone and dialed Jonathan?s phone number.

?Jonathan Crowley,? his deep voice answered in a businesslike tone.

?Hello,? I said, suddenly shy.

?Carol,? he said, his voice more like a caress. ?Have you had a good morning??

?I have,? I smiled. ?I had a lot to do, and surprisingly I got a lot done.?

?Surprisingly?? he said, amused.

?Yes,? I blushed. ?Well, I wondered if I would be?distracted.?

?Ah,? he said slowly, his voice a bit deeper. ?And were you??

?A bit,? I confessed. ?But I made myself focus on work until at least lunch time.?

?Good girl,? he said, and I could hear the smile in his voice. Good girl. I was still amazed that those two simple words could make my blood rush they way they did. It thrilled me every time he said them.

?Carol, baby, I wish I could chat with you, but I have a meeting at 1:00 and I need to go over a couple of things. I would, however, like to take you to dinner and spend the evening together on Wednesday, as we discussed.?

?Yes, Sir,? I breathed, already anticipating seeing him but slightly embarrassed to have disturbed him. ?I hope I didn?t disturb you.?

?Not at all. It was nice to hear your voice. Call if you need anything, girl. I will see you on Wednesday.?

?Yes, Sir. Goodbye.?

I sat back as I hung up, my feelings mixed. We had discussed our schedule together during the trip to New York. I had understood it, and I was not really surprised, but it did feel strange to have shared so much with him over the last two weeks and then to be so??structured in our time together. He had explained it to me carefully and had definitely considered my feelings. Still, I couldn?t deny that I felt a little lonely. Wednesday felt far away, I mused. Then I shook my head and chastised myself. This was no surprise, and he told me to call him if I needed him. My mind drifted to our conversation.

?Carol, I have always spent the weekends with my submissives. I also occasionally have taken them out on a weeknight. But?..it isn?t a traditional dating relationship. I have found it is impossible to have that kind of relationship without blurring the boundaries.? I had nodded, understanding. Of course he was talking about the love boundary. I had wondered if one or more of his submissives had ever told him that they had crossed that boundary. As if reading my thought, he had told me, ?My first submissive proclaimed her love to me, and I had to end our relationship. She was hurt, as was I. I do not want to cause another woman that kind of pain. I care deeply for you, but I also care about your heart. It just works better this way.?

It made perfect sense, and I did have a life outside of submission. I had a full time job, a grown child, and a not-quite-ex who would always be somewhat linked to me because of the complicated circumstances. Besides, I thought, my face heating, I could not spend every evening with Jonathan and have the energy to function at work. Our time together was exciting, erotic, and completely consuming, but it was also exhausting. I sighed and looked at my desk again. With so many things to do right in front of me, Wednesday would come in no time. I just needed to focus on the tasks at hand.

The house seemed very quiet when I arrived home that evening. I made a simple dinner, did a bit of reading, and took a quiet walk. By 9:00, however, I was inexplicably tired, and so I took a soothing bath, allowing my mind to wander, and decided to slide under the sheets sans nightclothes. Something about sleeping naked had always seemed so sensual to me, and I wanted to remain connected to that part of myself even on the nights when I would not be with Jonathan. I curled onto my left side, hugged the long body pillow close to me, and closed my eyes.

Jonathan?s breath was against my ear, whispering to me. I stretched my body slowly, tilting my head toward the sound. His hands slid into my hair, and he brushed through it, root to tip, with his fingers. They fanned out across my back, then one made its way slowly down my spine, and I arched my back in response. I felt his lips kiss between my shoulder blades, and his other hand came around me and gently caressed my breast, eventually taking the nipple between his thumb and forefinger and beginning to pull and twist slightly until I groaned. I clenched my thighs together in response to savor the growing fullness between my legs, and his hand traveled across my belly and down.

?Open for me,? he demanded softly, and I complied, raising and bending my leg so that the sole of my foot lay flat on the mattress. His fingers found me and stroked up and down, dipping a fingertip, then two, into my wetness and sliding back up to my clit. Over and over he teased until my hips began to move slowly against his hand. He cupped my backside with his other hand and held me still. I whimpered and he breathed, ?Shhh,? into my ear, easing his tongue around the edge before biting the lobe. I relaxed into him and allowed the sensation of his hand and fingers and tongue to move me. He eased to fingers into my wetness again and began sliding in and out, from the fingertips to the knuckle that joined the palm. Then the fingers that had been spread across my backside began to probe as well, and I moaned, my belly tightening and the delicious ache growing sharper. His teeth grazed the back of my neck, and then he shifted his body so that I could feel his erection between my cheeks. I sighed as he lifted my thigh and began to slowly ease into me, whispering my name. Then he began to move, slowly at first but gradually building, faster, harder, taking and taking while my body loomed closer and closer to the edge.

?Please!? the sound of my voice woke me from the dream. I was panting, and sweat had dampened my sheets. My body felt overly sensitive, and I could feel the dampness and aching between my legs. I trembled and needed to find relief. But I didn?t. I didn?t want to allow myself that without Jonathan, though I wasn?t sure quite why. I was his, even in the middle of the night when waking from a dream. The thought caused me to smile through my frustration. Shifting to the other side of the bed and away from the dampened sheets, I curled up again and allowed myself to relax and drift away again.

    This book pretty much picks up where the first one left off and you see the progression of their relationship and all the problems that ineviatably arise.

    This is a sequel to Bound to Him. This story pretty much picks up where the first one left off. Jonathan and Carol try some new things in this sequel but the relationship is kind of stagnant. I really liked how he finally told her he loved her; I though it was very romantic and creative.

    BOUND TO FALL by Sharron Kelley
    This is the follow up book to BOUND TO HIM. Overall the story line is good, I like the interaction between Jonathan and Carol. I did not read Bound to Him but was able to pick up where this story started. I think it would be best if Bound to Him is read before reading Bound To Fall.
    This book is in serious need of editing. The numerous grammatical errors, ie. multiple times the word my when it should have been me, over for oven, and many others throughout the book. Also, in Chapter 4, she arrives at his place, he tells her to strip, which she does and knells, then you go down the same page and it talks about him tearing her panties off and lifting her skirt.

    BOUND TO FALL is a great book. We meet Jonathan and Carol in BOUND TO HIM. This book starts right after BOUND TO HIM ends. It continues the story of how their relationship evolves. They are trying to figure out how to have a D/s relationship and still go on with their individual lives. They decide to have dinner on Wednesday nights and have Carol come to his apartment for the night. Jonathan picks her up at 6:00 on Friday nights and they spend the weekend together. He also lets her know that this is not a traditional dating relationship. He does not intend to fall in love and he wants her to know that. Later in the story, they have Sir Greg and his two submissives, Julia and Susannah, over for dinner. Jonathan spends the day teaching her the protocol when dealing with other dominants and submissives. She enjoys the dinner and the talk with Julia and Susannah. And, eventually, more happens.
    I highly recommend this book to you. I would caution you to read BOUND TO HIM first. It really helps to understand what is going on in the story. Also, this is more a story of BDSM than a spanking story. It is well written and there is good character development. There does need to be some editing, but it really doesn’t detract from the story.

    What a great job on this one! I enjoyed so much in this story. The characters were strong, well written and you cared about them. The BDSM scenes were very erotic and fun to read about! I thought that the story flowed extremely well and I loved how it ended. I have not read Bound to Him yet, but it didn\\\’t really make me feel that I was missing something. I will definitely be buying it though, simply because I loved this one and I\\\’m very excited now to see what happened to this couple when they first met! I would strongly recommend this to anyone that enjoys this genre!

    I definitely welcomed the I love you. It would have been a deal breaker for me. I still believe there is more to the story. What is with her almost ex situation. What will happen from this point forward and i still believe the sub from the first book has something else planned. There were some very hot parts to this book, I don\’t know if i could have let him do that with another girl. No matter how secure i felt with him (though, that part was written so well). Hope there will be one more installment to make everything fall into place.
