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.



“Vraiment?” she said at last.

Tim stopped sipping his cocktail. Uncertainty flashed on his face, keeping him from responding.

Damn. Hunt wished he’d taken French in high school and college rather than Spanish. It would have also helped if he remembered enough Español to converse.

She moved on, stopping in front of him.

Before she discovered he was unilingual, he leaned toward her and murmured, “I have to warn you, I use to be fluent in Pig Latin, but I’ve grown a little rusty since middle school. So please, be gentle with me.”

Surprise swept her lovely features followed by a throaty laugh. Honest, musical and all because of him.

Rarely had Hunt felt as proud. His cock strained against his stretchy boxers, wanting out, needing to be within her tight heat…though not from behind as he’d imagined. For their first time, they had to be eye to eye, her full attention on him. He wanted to watch her response to his passion, witness the flare of excitement at him entering, stretching, plowing into her until he couldn’t go any deeper and their bodies touched. He hoped she’d whimper. He’d probably groan and a fucking lot more. Tim and David would most likely bitch.

Pleased at the thought, Hunt managed to keep it to himself. He’d seen her reaction to his friends’ graceless flirting. This lady demanded to be honored and won. She needed to be in charge. He didn’t mind that a bit, wanting her to believe whatever worked as long as he was the one running the show.

“Thanks.” He took the bourbon, his thumb touching hers.

She didn’t pull back her hand. With a gentle tilt of her head, she studied him. Hunt allowed it, encouraging her to take the lead until he knew she’d accept whatever he wanted. Beneath her scrutiny, the music receded as did the tapping of Tim’s fingers against his glass and the floor squeaking as David shifted his weight. All Hunt heard was her gentle breathing. She was so close he caught her scent. A mixture of roses and jasmine laced with musk, as sensuous and mysterious as her.

He chanced stroking her thumb.

She parted her lips.

His legs got rubbery. He had an overpowering urge to brush his mouth over hers, then ease his tongue inside, prolonging the pleasure, not allowing it to end even as he knew it wouldn’t be enough. He wanted so much more. He craved it all. What was her real name? She was obviously well educated, so where had she gone to school? Whom had she loved?
