The Pact of Seduction has one rule—fulfill your ultimate fantasy. Bella’s problem, she can’t live up to her vow. But her failure spins events that lead her into unknown territory. Kole, a Dom at the sex club Castle Dolce Vita, wasn’t part of her fantasy, but he’s about to show her he should have been.

Kole is more than willing to introduce Bella to BDSM since he’s held an interest in her for some time. But the feisty woman isn’t easily tamed and her strong personality proves to be difficult. While she might be determined to keep him at a distance, Kole has other ideas. He won’t allow her to shut him out.

 A pact between best friends brought them together, emotional barriers tear them apart. Kole skillfully reminds Bella through pleasure and punishment that she is now his submissive, and her place is under his command.

“I very highly recommend this book and give it a rating of 5 out of 5! It is extremely well-written with a scorching hot and very intense story. I loved both Bella and Kole right from the start, and the author drew me into the story so that I could feel all of Bella’s intense emotions. At times I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. The connection between Bella and Kole is powerful and the tension is high. This volatile duo creates passion that walks the fine line between sizzling hot love and explosive battles. I was rooting hard for both of them throughout the whole story.

There are many different levels of BDSM in fiction ranging from just light aspects to hardcore. This story is certainly hot and very erotic, and the BDSM level is somewhere in the middle of the range. Much of the story, even during the BDSM scenes, has more to do with the internal journeys and conflicts between Bella and Kole. I truly loved this story and the characters, and I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in this fabulous series” —The Romance Reviews (Top Pick)

“With Beg for It, the second book in the Pact of Seduction series author Stacey Kennedy once again captivates with a story that touches and seduces the very heart and soul of the reader, keeping them out of control and on the edge. The combination of romance and dominance within the story keeps the reader fully engaged and the well-crafted protagonists, the deep emotional intensity, and the rising sexual tension all combined makes this a story that readers will continue to enjoy again and again. Ms. Stacey does a superb job of establishing the D/s experience and the relationship between Kole and Bella as well as the boundaries letting nothing get in the way of their desires.” —The Romance Studio

“Ms. Kennedy delivers a powerful erotic novel complete with a HEA. It contains what I feel are the necessary elements (dominance, submission, aftercare, power exchange) of a well-written D/s story. Due to the length of the book, they are covered in just enough detail without going overboard. If you are new to the world of BDSM, tread lightly here. Otherwise, Master Kole’s dungeon has a plethora of toys, ropes, benches, and floggers – just to name a few – to tame even the most stubborn of submissives. And he isn’t afraid to use them!” —Bitten by Paranormal Romance

“I liked how realistic Stacey Kennedy made both their characters in Beg for It as Bella comes to the conclusion she’s meant to be Kole’s submissive. Kole loves Bella’s brattiness, knowing it will give him ample opportunities to correct his sub. Not only is the heat between these two superb but banter between Kole and Bella interacting within their social circle makes for a very fun read. I can’t wait for another installment of Ms. Kennedy’s Pact of Seduction series as yet another woman goes out to fulfill her dreams.” —TwoLips Reviews

 “Kole and Bella rocked my world big time, especially that Kole. What a hunk of mantastic he is, yummy! Their short but fulfilling story starts out quick and doesn’t take a breather anywhere through out. After their first ‘scene’ I was worried that Bella was going to turn out to be a simpering idiot but she make a valiant comeback with the help of Kole of course (did I already mention that he’s kinda deliciously awesome). And oh my goodness, the sex scenes were rocking – yes, the don’t come aknocking kind. Bella better be thankful to the many subs before her for all pleasures and not so painful punishments in her future.” —Red Hot Books

“My thoughts on the 2nd book to the series Pact of Seduction…was WOW!! I thought Reed had me squirming while reading “Bind Me”. No…Kole made me squirm and almost fall off of my sofa.” —Book Lovin’ Mamas

“This book was seriously off the charts hot! It got rough and dirty but it was incredibly hot! This isn’t a book for people that enjoy “vanilla sex”. The sex is intense and includes hot wax, spanking, flogging, ropes, vibrators and complete submission from our sub and total control from our dom. If you are looking to heat things up and enjoy it rough then Beg For It is for you. It was a perfect mix of pleasure and pain.But you may need a bucket of ice water after reading this!!” —Awesomesauce Book Club


Only one thing would save Bella now—a stiff drink. Reed and Kole’s parties were always fun, and it was nice to see new friends she’d made over the past month. But her mood was right in the toilet. It’d been that way all day and had only gotten worse since she joined the party. She shouldn’t have come.

She cursed on a low breath. How in the hell was she going to get out of her current predicament? Originally, it’d been she who offered the idea of the pact of seduction, and she couldn’t even commit. Pathetic.

Marley’s giggle drew her attention, and Reed had pulled her onto his lap, nibbling at her neck. As horrible as it was, jealously surged. Maybe she had hoped that her fantasy would fill that empty void in her soul. Sure, it was meant as something sexually fun, but Bella craved something…

A part of her remained unfulfilled, even if she didn’t understand exactly what was missing. All she knew, her life at this moment was boring with a side of totally sucks.

She glanced over at Kyra, who laughed with Sadie, and nudged her arm. “I’ll be back. I need some air.”

“Sure.” Kyra’s green eyes were a little glassy. The wine clearly had gotten to her. “Want some company?”

“Nah.” She plastered on a fake smile. “I won’t be long.”

Kyra gave a nod, then turned her attention back at Sadie as the two chuckled about something Sadie had said. If only Bella had something to laugh about. She rose from the couch and made her way through the crowd.

As she passed, she noticed a man sitting on the ottoman and a woman knelt at his feet with her arms over his legs. The position appeared casual enough, but it also looked…different. As if the woman enjoyed being at his feet. Another spurt of jealously soared, and she gave her head a good hard shake. She was apparently envious of everyone who had a relationship. And since when had she been jealous of a BDSM relationship?

What’s gotten into you?

She made her way through the living room and stepped out onto the balcony. The cool air brushed against her skin, and she shivered. Winter still hung on in Baltimore, but what a strange winter it’d been—snow one day, mild the next. Tonight was brisk, but that only seemed to help cool off the annoyance burning her blood.

With her glass in her hands, she leaned on the railing and glanced over the city. Reed and Kole’s condo had an amazing view and the lights twinkled below.

She sipped at her drink and pondered her situation. How could she plan another fantasy when the only one she wanted she had yet to fully accept herself? And why was she acting like a bitter idiot?

After a long gulp that had her cringing from the aftertaste, a deep voice interrupted her useless thoughts. “I heard last night didn’t go well.”

She lowered the glass, licked the moisture on her lips, and looked next to her to find Kole. Like always in his presence, butterflies fluttered in her stomach, but she squashed them and kept her voice controlled. “That’s putting it lightly.”

His blond stylish hair framed a face worth a second look, and his dark blue eyes shone with a power that made her melt. He leaned against the railing beside her, cocked his head, and she felt the weight of his stare right down to her toes. “Tell me about it.”

She sipped her drink, mortified to her bones that she had to admit this to Kole. “It wasn’t Raven’s fault. I”—she drew in a deep breath and said quickly—“I always thought my fantasy was to be with a woman, but clearly it’s not.”

“Ah, I see.” He took a gulp of his beer before he lowered it. “You didn’t get off, I’m assuming?”

She snorted. “If laughing in her face means that I didn’t get off, then yes, I didn’t get off.”

He chuckled, the sound so seductive Bella quivered. In response to that odd reaction, she examined him and couldn’t stop from admiring the view.

He was dressed in a pair of dark jeans that no doubt hugged his fine ass, and a black T-shirt that was snug around the muscles beneath.Good God. She licked her lips for reasons that had nothing to do with her drink.

“You didn’t follow through with your part of the pact, then?”

Her gaze lifted to his face. The glint in his eyes declared he’d been quite aware of her admiring him. Hell, she’d lusted after him since the day they met. A strong sexual attraction existed between them that she hadn’t experienced before with any man, especially a Dom.

She blinked and focused away from the warmth that formed between her thighs. “That’s right. I bailed on the pact.”

His gaze became penetrating as his tone dipped lower. “Why don’t you arrange another night with someone else for your fantasy?”

“Because”—her muscles stiffened, and after a long sigh, she grimaced—“I have no idea what that fantasy is now.”

“Such a problem for a woman to have,” he mused.

She gulped at the way his voice seemed to carry into her soul; then she lowered her head to avoid eye contact with him. He raised his bottle to his mouth, and his arm brushed against hers. Tingles zinged through her, and she squeezed her thighs together to ease the throb of her clit.

How did he make her body do that? Every time he was near, she all but sizzled, and when he touched her, everything was amplified.

“I see that you need help, then, in finding what you’re looking for.”

It hadn’t sounded like a question, which she was glad for since her tight throat made it impossible to answer. He slid his finger along her arm, slowly and with clear intent to unravel her.

She bit her bottom lip. “W-what does that mean?”

He tucked his finger under her chin and lifted her head. “I think we both know what I mean.” Those eyes of his burned with the lust that he had obviously contained. “You enjoy my attention, and I’d enjoy you under my command.”

Then he pressed a finger on the back of her hand and danced his touch up her arm. His gaze followed his caresses every step of the way. And damn him if she didn’t close her eyes and shudder.

A scrape of his nail along her skin drew her eyes open, and he grinned with sin. “Look how beautifully you react to me.” He finally reached her shoulder, and she trembled under the softness of his touch that seemed to contradict that power oozing from him. He tucked his fingers back under her chin, drew her head up, and stared intently into her eyes.

Searching for what, she had no idea.

His hold tensed, a shift in his gaze appeared that made her stomach flip-flop, and her panties were now soaked. He leaned in, pressed his lips against hers, and the world froze. His luscious and damn well perfect mouth molded with hers as his silky tongue swept her away. When had anyone ever kissed her like this?

Oh, right—never.

He kissed her thoroughly, leaving no part of her mouth untouched; then he backed away but kept hold of her chin. “It’s time to stop ignoring what your body needs and accept that you want to be dominated.”

Hell, how right was he? Maybe BDSM wasn’t her fantasy when she made the pact of seduction with her friends, but after hearing about it from Marley, her interest had grown. She lifted a lazy shoulder to appear nonchalant. “I suppose if I set up a scene with you, that would be a solution to my problem.”

“Not good enough.” His gaze hardened. “Do you want me to take you into a scene, Bella?”

At his pause, she realized she needed to give a better answer, and she nodded. “I do.”
