The wedding is four months away, and Ethan has promised to train Sam to handle a planned honeymoon activity. He’s calculated the math to figure out her goals each week. When she reaches the weekly target she gets a massage and lots of fun orgasms. But if she doesn’t, it’s the stainless steel cane.

And we haven’t even mentioned the bachelorette party.

Character Interview

Interview with Ethan

What's your favorite ice cream?

Rocky road, but Sam’s is mint chocolate chip and lately I’ve been tossing a scoop of hers in with mine. They work well together.

What's your favorite thing about Sam?

I have to pick one thing? Probably her mind. She’s book smart, but she’s also sharp, and she thinks on her feet. You can’t get anything by her.

Or, maybe it would be better to say her personality. She’s funny, smart, brave, and tough as nails. And she’s mine.

She's also strong, and focused, and determined. When she sets her mind to something, she makes it happen. Somehow, I lucked out and this strong, powerful, smart woman submits to me. I'll never take that for granted.

What does Sam do that's most annoying?

*laughs* You can’t get anything by her. Not that I'd want to — honesty is important to me — but sometimes it'd be nice to surprise her.

What's your favorite thing Sam does in bed?

I love that she can take what I give her. No one else has ever satisfied my sadistic streak like Sam can. And she doesn't hold back her screams. I know she could if she wanted to, I've seen films of her fighting and taking some serious hits without showing any visible signs of pain.

She gives me everything, though. She's honest about her needs, honest about her feelings and emotions, even when it's not easy.

If there were something you could change about the first few weeks you knew Sam, what would it be?

I’d discover a way for us to find out we were both kinky sooner than we did. I was fascinated by her from the first I saw her, and when I had the chance to officially meet her a few days later, she very nicely turned me down flat.

What's your favorite movie?

You’re probably expecting me to name a fight movie, but I love the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I doubted anyone could do justice to the books, but the movies brought to life what I’d envisioned as I read them.

What addiction can you not live without?

Sam’s my only addiction. I had to spend a week in Atlanta during tax season, and ended up driving back to Chattanooga one night because I missed her so much. I had to drive right back to Atlanta the next morning, but it was worth it.

If you could be in a different book, which one would it be?

It would have to be an adventure book – The Lord of the Rings, or Around the World in 80 Days, or maybe Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon if they’d teach me how to run across rooftops.

If your life were a book, what would you prefer the author not tell readers about you?

I spend a lot of time trying to keep strangers from being afraid of me. I’m big and scary, apparently, and if a woman is alone in a parking lot I see her looking around for help if I get too close. So when I’m out, I try to make a wide berth around anyone who looks afraid of me. I’d really rather people not know about my sadistic side, because I’d never hurt anyone who didn’t want to be hurt.
