The door to her office opens and Beauty stands there for a long moment, before she murmurs, “You are quite lovely, James.”I want to preen under her praise but I don’t. I haven’t done anything to earn it yet.
“Come with me,” she says softly, and I rock to my feet, standing until she begins walking down the hall. There’s a single black door between her office and my bedroom, and she enters it without fanfare.
The room is painted black, with a large four poster bed, tall white candles on the tables and cabinets, and a St Andrew’s cross against the wall. There’s a rack with paddles, whips, canes, crops—a whole host of toys and tools—and I shiver a little looking at it.
Beauty’s voice carries a hint of amusement when she says, “See something you like, Beast?”
I lower my eyes and hide my smile. “Yes, ma’am.”
She doesn’t laugh at me, not the way Charm would and I want her to, but she makes a happy little hum in the back of her throat, and that feels like a win.
Fingertips pressing against my bare back nudge me deeper in the room, and I resolutely do not lean into Beauty’s touch.
She then flips off the lights, plunging the room into a darkness so dense it feels like a living thing. She moves past me, careful not to touch, and I wonder just how the fuck she can see in this black. A tiny flare of light—a match she’s lit—throws heavy shadows as it flickers and jumps, shining against her mask as she lights a candle before blowing it out and stepping around me.

WICKED BEAST by Nazarea Andrews
PURCHASE ON AMAZON
James “Beast” Lutz isn’t like his friends.
He doesn’t crave control the way Charm and Mal do, and he doesn’t play the games Wolf thrives on.
He lives on his knees, all of his strength bent to the will of his Domme.
He’s never regretted that, until now.
Now, when he’s trapped in an arrangement serving a Domme who can’t keep a sub.
Now, when he’s not sure how to trust a woman wrapped in mystery and less sure he wants to.
But the more he gets to know the Domme everyone knows as Beauty, the more Beast realizes everything he thought he knew was wrong.
