Claiming Magique
Book One – Appointment with Pleasure series
Tina Donahue

A man at the center of power…a woman who won’t be ruled…
They call her Magique.

Sought out by the District’s elite, she’s no ordinary call girl, deciding who will pleasure her for the evening. Her preference is for several men at once. Games of bondage and submission heighten her arousal and desire to have a strong male take her…to be adored.
Lobbyist Hunter Prescott was only looking for a good time, not a woman who unleashes a hunger so deep it changes his world. He won’t stop until Magique is his alone, a prisoner of his lust, powerless against his growing need for her body and heart.
With this man, resistance isn’t allowed. For this woman, he’ll create a world of sensual delight and yearning like none she’s known. Proving that only with trust and true surrender will she find unparalleled rapture.

Stepping back, she placed the empty tray on a side table, then lowered her other strap over her shoulder, baring it slowly. A millimeter at a time.
Hunt forgot to swallow his booze. His skin tingled.
When she seemed certain of everyone’s full attention, she turned away from them. “I need help with my zipper.”
Hunt handed his drink to David who took it instinctively, then grumbled, “Hey.”
Not bothering to comment, Hunt reached Magique before Tim could. To his delight, she leaned into him, her back against his chest. The top of her head came to his chin. Her scent wafted up, making him dizzy.
Tim edged closer, standing to the right. David joined them, standing to the left.
Hunt ignored them both. All that mattered was Magique, getting her out of the dress, exploring her body, imprisoning her softness beneath him.
Gathering her hair in his hand, he brought it to his face and inhaled deeply. God. It smelled as good as the rest of her. Fresh, delicate, womanly. He relished the scent, taking his time.
Tim mumbled something beneath his breath.
Magique paid him no heed. Lifting her arms, she held them above her head as a dancer would.
Not expecting that, Hunt debated whether to cup her breasts and decided against it—for the time being. Once they were in bed, all bets were off. For now, he intended to make her wait for his carnal attention just as she expected him to be patient for hers. She’d said she needed help with her zipper, so where the hell was it? On a guess, he ran his fingers down the right seam of her dress, straying off course only once to stroke the gentle swell of her tummy.
She released her weight into him, then wiggled her ass against his erection. As a test or a tease?
Didn’t much matter. He’d survive this game and come out on top, literally. Fighting a smile, he next concentrated on the left seam, locating the fastener. Little by little, he eased it down, stopping at the curve of her hip, resting his hand on it to see what she’d do.
With her right arm lowered, she turned her face to his as she had in his fantasy.
A bit closer and their mouths would touch, and then they’d be necking like horny teens. Or she’d be doing that with Tim and David after telling him to leave because he’d assumed too much, making his next move before she decided to allow it.
Steeling himself, Hunt continued to keep his distance, making her want their coming pleasure as much as he did.
She smiled, all sassy and confident as though she’d won their unspoken challenge. “Thank you,” she purred, then looked away, her hair falling across her face, hiding it.
Hunt made a noise of acknowledgment, struggling against an impulse to bring her to one of the chairs, haul her on his lap and direct her to take his cock inside her damp cunt. He sensed she would have enjoyed that, having seen her desire in the flush of her cheeks, the longing in her expression. So what now? It seemed she was waiting for him to be a good boy and move back. No way until he was ready.
He regarded the sides of her dress. They’d fallen away from her body, the deepening V exposing a lot of skin.
Heat rushed to his face and chest. He didn’t see the lacy edge of a bra or a thong. Was she nude beneath the garment?
Eager to know, he stepped back.
With a gentle twist of her shoulders and torso, the sheath slipped down, whispering over her hips and thighs, dropping to her feet.
