WARNING: Something VERY different this week from my previous humorous SSS postings. This Six is from Chapter Two of MASTERS AT ARMS. Savannah Gentry, who is 19 in this scene, is an incest victim of eleven years and "living" as a sex slave to her father and now his business partner, Lyle. They use her to give sexual favors to potential clients who have an interest in sadism.
As she awaits her two next clients, she realizes Lyle is becoming more and more like her father. This doesn't bode well for her future and she begins planning her escape--and revenge. This is just before Damian comes into her life.
She wouldn’t be surprised if Lyle was slated to inherit her body after her father died. No, there wouldn’t be a “slave clause” in his public will. But she was certain her father would never release his hold over her, even from beyond the grave.
Her chest muscles clenched, squeezing the meager amount of air from her lungs. Some days, she actually welcomed death over continuing to live this way. Ah, the ultimate betrayal of the obedient slave—to execute the body the Master thought He owned.
Needless to say, it has been an intense week working on revisions to this chapter! I wish I could start writing Savannah's happily-ever-after story (NOBODY'S PERFECT due out in February 2012) sooner! Luckily, she and Damian will reunite in the November release of NOBODY'S HERO. But these two wounded characters will need more than one book to heal all the hurts they've suffered in life.
In the meantime, if you want to leave on a lighter note, here's a glimpse at Savannah's and Damian's perfect day together at the beach, which takes place later in this chapter.
Kallypso Masters currently is working on a four-book series with prequel MASTERS AT ARMS due out in early August 2011, NOBODY'S ANGEL by late August 2011, NOBODY'S HERO in November 2011, and NOBODY'S PERFECT in February 2012.
