Prologue

Summary: A true "dom's dom," Marcus has the admiration of the BDSM community, having become the go-to "submissive whisperer," trainer of the most challenging submissives and healer of the broken. We first met Marcus in "Kinkily Ever After" when Edward flashed back on his training sessions under Marcus's strict yet nurturing hand. We saw the friendship between the two men deepen while Marcus taught Edward not just the ropes (and whips and chains) but also the compassionate, nurturing side of being a true dominant. We suffered silently along with the older man as he loved Edward in ways that could not be reciprocated. Now, finally, Marcus has a chance to try for his own KEA with an exquisite young submissive who comes to him not through another master, but at the wedding of the couple he mentors, none other than Edward and Isabella Cullen.




PROLOGUE


Riley and Sean’s wedding
                                                                    
“You are looking beautiful as ever, Mrs. Cullen.”

“Thanks, Marcus, and—might I say?—you are rocking that tux. You’ve lost weight.”

“Why, yes. Thanks for noticing.”

Bella smiled. “It’s not just your weight; it’s everything. I’ve never seen you this happy.”

“You’re gonna make me say it, aren’t you?”

Grinning up at me, she said, “You can always use your safe word.”

“Aren’t you the brazen one! Perhaps I need to tell your Master you need a spin over his knee.”

“Oh my gosh!” She covered her blush with both hands. “Stop that! We’re in a church for Chrissakes!”

“So we are.” I chuckled. “I think they want us to take our seats. Seeing as you’re my date . . . at least while our menfolk are out best manning . . . Shall we?”

“Sure. Mind if I . . .?” She waved her hand toward the aisle seat, and I bit back my objection. I’d already ogled Dane’s tuxedo-clad ass before I let him leave the house this afternoon; I supposed I could let Bella have the privilege of watching her husband walk down the aisle. Besides, if not for Bella and Edward, I wouldn’t even be here today, would never have met the man who changed my life just eighteen short months ago.
