Aubrey has been hurt in the past, discouraged and degraded by a heartless father. Still, William sees something in her that won’t allow him to walk away. Instantly drawn to her but intuitive enough to take it slowly, he courts her. Then he bargains, persuades and seduces until he ensnares Aubrey with his commanding nature. He’s everything she ever needed but never had the courage to want for. Despite the fight she puts up in accepting William’s lifestyle, the bonds he places on Aubrey give her a freedom she desperately needs. Together, they heal old wounds and find their perfect love.

“You can keep your robe on and I’ll simply part it along the bottom or you can feel free to take it off if that makes you more comfortable,” Shea instructed me.

I laughed, my nervous laugh, and left my robe securely fastened.

Shea patted the lushly cushioned table and I hopped up. Shea placed one of her tiny warm hands on my calf reassuringly as she separated the panels of my robe. My anxiety edged up. It’s just a few hairs, I told myself repeatedly in my head but the words did nothing to stem my anxiety.

As she prepared the wax, Shea talked to me. “William requested a small triangular area of hair be maintained. I‘ll trim you to make the removal easier then begin waxing from the exterior and work our way in. We can take a break whenever you need it but the best thing for you is to relax, close your eyes, listen to the music and focus on your breathing.”

“Okay. You make it sound so simple.” I breathed in deeply, knowing it wasn’t as simple as she’d made it sound.

“I’ve done this enough to know it’s going to hurt but also enough to know there are worse things.”

I nodded and relaxed into the table when she raised the volume of the music. I felt light touches but chose not to look. I allowed the music to fill me. After some quiet moments, Shea bent my leg to the side, opened me and left me completely exposed to this virtual stranger. I cringed inwardly but maintained my relaxed position.

The warmth of the wax as she spreads it along the valley connecting leg to torso was soothing, so incongruous with the next act to follow. I braced myself.

“Relax, Aubrey. Don’t hold your breath. You were doing well with the deep breathing. Keep breathing deeply. I will count for you. Deep breath in, two, three, four, deep breath out, two three, four…” Shea comforted me.

It was somewhere in that seventh breath when the burning, pinching, mother of all pain struck. Shea quickly ripped the wax from my skin and with it, tore my hair out. Just a few hairs, I told myself, but it was more pain than I had even imagined. Tears ran from my eyes as I lay thinking about how much more there was to be done. I wanted to crawl from the table. I whimpered, unable to locate my center again.

“Aubrey, you’re doing this for William. I know you want to please him. Keep your thoughts on him and continue breathing.” Bending my other leg, she spread more wax, “let’s breathe together again.”

    Hey all! Thanks for having me here today. Today’s scene was fun to write… Aubrey goes for her first waxing at William’s request. She handles it – well, she handles it like any of us would our first time, I suspect! So, take a moment to leave a comment and be entered to WIN a free ebook. Can’t wait to chat with you! I’ll poke back in all day! 🙂

  2. I wax. And if he asked I would I might just turn the tables on him and ask him to do it for me :-).

  3. I forgot to mention I have kindle

  4. Meghan Stith

    I don’t, but yes, I would!
    Kindle would be my choice!

  5. Eva P.

    I don’t either, but I’m pretty sure I would, thought might have to ask him to come with me so I could hold his and squeeze it when I feel the pain 😉 Kindle would be my choice.

  6. Mary Preston

    Yes I do.



  7. PalomaBeck

    Thanks to everyone who has responded so far. I knew this would be a scene so many women could relate to since we all do certain rituals for beauty’s sake.

  8. Eighteen years ago, I did a bikini, leg, and underarm wax…never again! Every 2 months, I do a eyebrow wax but that’s it! I might SHAVE more off if hubby asked but I think I’m done waxing;)

    PDF or kindle ebook preference.

    I do wax and it does get easier once you do it several times. The short amount of time and pain suffered is worth not having to shave my legs everyday. I also get my eyebrows waxed. The bikini wax definitely the most unpleasant but I had five kids so pain is easy when it’s over in less than 30 minutes 🙂 my husband would never ask, but if he did I would do it for him. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

      Forgot my preferred format which is ePub, but mobi will do too.

    • PalomaBeck

      True. Whenever I start to whimp out on something, I remind myself that I gave birth to three boys with no meds. If I can do that, I can do anything – very liberating. Waxing is on my list of “worth the pain”.

      • Shannon B

        Me too. My first two boys were born naturally because my doctor didn’t believe in epidurals and that was only 14 years ago. My third I had an epidural and that was sooo easy. And then lastly I had twins via c-section and that was the worst in my opinion. Because it was twins the incision was bigger and the healing time took way too long.
