Tease, tease, tease

le plumeSo, I finished up writing a vanilla book yesterday and I’ve decided that it’s time to write another in the Club Imperial universe. I’ve been playing with the ideas of Shibari– a very beautiful and artistic style of binding– and since I’ve already “jotted down” nearly 10,000 words in the file… Well, it seems like “Knots” is up on deck.

You’ll be delighted to know that “Knots” is intended to be a standalone.

Oh, you want another teaser? I guess I can do that.

This is intended for mature 18+ audiences only!

Knots, by Katherine Rhodes


“I’m intrigued by this game you want to play,” she said, “so I’ll go along with you. I am going to explain the rules of the shibari room. Are you listening?”

“Yes, mistress,” he said.

“First, the room must be booked. I will not work on a shibari creation anywhere else. That room was designed to my specifications and I can be the most creative in there,” Dusty said.

“Second, shibari is an art, Mr. Smith. It will not be rushed. The more complicated the designs will take me hours. If you do not think that you can hold submissive for that long, do not bother me with a request for a complicated design.

“Third, do not expect that I will tie you up and let you right back out. You have sat for me for that long and now you are where you want to be. You will remain in the creation for no less than two hours.

“And fourth, if there is anything else you wish for me to entertain while you’re in the room, you will write the request down and leave it on the side table. We are not here to discuss your proclivities and desires. We are here to indulge them.”

She was standing directly in front of him. “I don’t deal in bullshit, Mr. Smith. I don’t have the time or desire to do so. I very much enjoy shibari. I can get lost in the intricacies of the ropes just as much as my subjects. It is my delight to bring you the joys of silk ropes. But as in any other room in this building, it is necessary for you to choose a safeword. I am assuming that the ropes are not your only desire in this, as you have visited with several other mistresses. Am I correct?”

“Yes, mistress,” he said.

“Then, since I do not wish to mince words or waste time in talking, I will request that you give me a list of your hard limits and your soft limits. A person who cannot write down his desires is not a man I wish to assist. Is that clear?”

“Yes, mistress,” he said.

“Then when I see that you have booked the room, I will expect that we have an agreement, Mr. Smith.” She walked around him one more time, and slapped the crop on his ass, hard. “Now. Shall we play?”
