Growing up the way I did, you’d think I’d be more screwed up than what I actually am.
Soon as I turned sixteen, I left that bump in the road I called home and took my chances on the street.
Best decision I ever made.
Now, at the age of twenty six, I’m educated, employed and damn good at my job.
My friends have become my family. Like me, they know what it’s like to grow up unloved.
But the saying is true.
The world makes way for those who know where they are going.
I know where I’m going and I’ll get there eventually. On my own terms and at my own pace.
But then there’s him.
I feel his eyes on me. I see him hiding in plain sight. He watches me.
He makes me feel.
But it’s real.
I’m sure you’re wondering how a person falls in love with their stalker.
So am I.
This isn’t a story.
This is my life.
Ella Dominguez - Continental Life
Warning: Written for mature and open-minded individuals. Contains detailed graphic sexual encounters, including oral & anal sex, bondage and discipline. Passion, promises, desire, discipline... Having been only lovers, Bella and Xander must now become friends if their relationship is to endure the hardships of longevity. Before they can begin their new life together, they must also learn to accept each other for who they really are - in and out of the office and bedroom. For Bella, being the fiancé of a busy CEO is difficult enough, but being a full-time medical student as well, is even more challenging as she tries to find the time for her man and her education. For Xander, living the life of a worldly CEO and being the fiancé of a hard-working medical student has its up and downs, too. But he's no common CEO - he's also a dominant and an instructor at a prestigious domestic discipline training center, something he's finally forced to share with Bella, as well as all the feelings he had suppressed for so long. Realizing that being a submissive to Mr. Pettifor 9-5 doesn't compare to being his obedient partner 24/7, Bella thinks she has the perfect plan to strengthen their bond and to spend more time with her alpha male - to attend the school which Xander teaches at so that she learn exactly what he needs in a partner. Submerged in the domestic discipline lifestyle, she's forced to see the man she loves educating other women, something she wasn't prepared for. Headstrong and tenacious, Bella refuses to quit even when she realizes she must be willing to be instructed by other men in order to achieve her goal of finishing the DD Program. But is she really ready for that? Xander doesn't think so and he worries the training may harm rather than help their relationship. As Bella and Xander struggle to find their way and make their unconventional relationship work, it seems everyone and everything is trying to come between them. And so their dance of push and pull begins as they both fight their way through their emotions and fear of the unknown.
Ella Dominguez - Continental Beginnings
Warning: Written for mature and open-minded individuals. Contains detailed graphic sexual encounters, including bondage and discipline. Written from Mr. Pettifor's POV. From the first day Mr. Pettifor laid eyes on Bella Darcy, he knew he couldn't deny himself the indulgence of being with her. Against his better judgement, he hired her, knowing full well he would pay the price with her constant presence. Little did the alpha male know that before him stood a woman who yearned for his touch, his control and his training. By day, Mr. Pettifor was a hard working businessman and a force to be reckoned with. At night, he was a talented and skilled instructor at a domestic disclipline training center and an austere alpha male whom women bowed at his feet. At a crossroads in her life, Bella had started a new career path, hoping to one day go to medical school. When she applied as the personal assistant to the inscrutable Mr. Pettifor, she never thought it would lead to anything more than an interview. This is the story of Mr. Pettifor, a man who took for granted the love and adoration given to him until it was taken away, and how he fell in love with the woman he trained to be everything he ever wanted. This is the tale of the shy and fearful Ms. Darcy and how she flourished under his command, never knowing of his secret life, never asking questions, and yet, somehow finding her true courageous self in the process. This is the story of how their relationship began.
Ella Dominguez - Continental Breakfast
WARNING: Includes detailed sexual encounters, including oral and anal sex, profanity, and an unconventional relationship. Not for closed-minded individuals. Intended for readers 18+. Bella Darcy is personal assistant, muse and plaything to wealthy businessman Mr. Pettifor. Their 9-5 relationship is unconventional, but mutually satisfying. Mr. Pettifor is alpha male personified - demanding, stern, insatiable, emotionally closed-off and seemingly indifferent to anything that doesn't involve six zeros behind it. Bella had never wanted more until the day she heard passionate cries that didn't belong to her, coming from his office. Deeply hurt and realizing that she cannot be with a man who can so blatantly be with another woman while she is mere feet away, Bella turns in her letter of resignation, throwing Mr. Pettifor into a tailspin. Everything he's worked so hard for now seems insignificant and the woman whom he trained to be everything he wanted, has now decided to move on, leaving him reeling.
