What if you want one woman, but you're told by her brother, your friend, that you can't have her? Do you date her older sister? Probably not, but that's exactly what Ted decides to do. He tries to change his lifestyle and be the man Cassandra wants, when all he wants is to be is himself, the Master. The one he wants to be his sub isn't Cassandra at all, but her younger sister Tabby.
Ted knows he'd love to tame Tabby the first moment he lays eyes on her, the little minx flirts and teases him mercilessly every chance she gets. Tabby quickly becomes the only woman who has ever been able to make Ted yearn for something more; love and a family. But will Tabby want him once she finds out what kind of man he truly is?
Tabitha is a tease and enjoys it until a Marine recruit that she'd been teasing becomes obsessed with her, now she's not sure what to do. Then there's also Ted, she may have started out teasing him, but she quickly falls for him. How can she convince Ted that she's not teasing, and she wants to be his woman?
Tabitha Jameson knew from the moment Ted Robey walked through their front door with her brother Brian that she wanted him between her legs and anywhere else he chose to be. She knew his name because Brian talked about moving into his house all the time. But that was all she knew about him, until now. She never pictured he be so manly, so sexy. It wasn’t as if she hadn’t seen sexy men before because she had. Her father was a general in the Marines, but he was also currently acting as the drill sergeant so she got to see all the new recruits come in. Hell, she liked teasing them just to upset her father. He always warned her to stay away from his Marines, so she made it a point to flaunt herself around them every chance she got. She thought it was all harmless fun.
She hated to see her brother move out. He’d always been the only one who ever really cared about her, but was happy for him all the same. He’d always treated her as if she were still a little girl and if he’d known about her teasing those guys he’d have thrown a fit. He didn’t want her to date and made sure of it by threatening any guy who tried to ask her out. He’d probably have a heart attack if he knew she’d snuck into his room and watched his X-rated movies. She just had all these strange feelings happening to her body and wanted to know what went on between a man and a woman. It wasn’t as if Brian would ever let her find out on her own.
She also knew she’d never felt anything like the tingling she was now felt between her legs by just looking at this man. God, he was built like the finest molded Marine she’d ever seen, and she’d seen a lot in her time. His muscles seemed to ripple as he walked across the floor. The t-shirt he was wearing was stretched tightly to his body and seemed to be cutting into his biceps as his arms flexed. His hair a wavy chocolate brown, cut short, and neat. He was handsome in a rough sort of way. He had that bad boy look behind those dark sunglasses he still wore, making him look almost dangerous.
Tabby watched holding her breath as he pushed the sunglasses up to rest on the top of his head. Those smoldering brown eyes, lord help her. She wanted to melt into them as her body began to tremble slightly. She was almost afraid of what her body was feeling for a total stranger. She’d seen the Marines around here looking at her, but she’d never felt anything like she was feeling at this moment. She had a strong urge to reach down and touch herself to ease the ache that was beginning to build there.
Watching him through hooded eyes as he strutted across the living room as if he owned it and then stop, his jeans were molded so tightly to his body she had to bite her bottom lip to keep from sighing out loud as he began to move again. She looked up at him when he stopped directly in front of her.
“Hey.” his voice was so deep she could almost feel it vibrating inside her body.
“Hello.” she barely got out past her tight throat.
“She’s cute, you’re sister?” Ted asked following Brian.
“Yeah, she’s the baby.” Brian answered.
“I’m not a baby, Bri.” Tabby yelled.
“Sure, you’re not Tabby Cat.” Brian laughed.
“The name fits. She’s as cute as a kitten.” Ted chuckled, looking back at her over his shoulder, as he winked at her.
“Yeah a kitten with claws.” Brian answered, and then they both laughed. “Grab a seat, man. I’ll get us something to drink.” Brian said motioning to a chair across the room from her, just before going into the kitchen.
Tabby watched through her lashes as Ted sat down, she could feel his eyes on her, warming her from her bare toes to her head, and then he slowly ran his tongue across his teeth.
“Like what you see?” she inquired teasingly with an arched brow.
“I don’t know. I really haven’t seen anything.” He raised his eyes brows smiling wickedly at her. “Yet.”
Brian came out of the kitchen carrying a couple of beers, handing one to Ted, and then tapped the bottom of her foot with the other.
“Move your feet Tabby Cat, and by the way, where is everyone?” he asked when she pulled her feet closer to her buttocks. She felt Ted’s eyes on her ass as her shorts crept past her cheeks.
“Dad’s still away training the new troops. Mom and Cass are out shopping again.” She stood up and started across the room.
“Why didn’t you go with them?” Brian asked.
“Oh please, do I look like I need new clothes?” she asked pulling her top over her head then pushed her shorts down, stepping out of them smiling as she noticed Ted checking out her barely there white bikini.
“Hell yeah, looks to me like you’ve outgrown your damn clothes, and what the hell, are you doing anyway?” Brian demanded to know.
“Going for a swim,” Tabby replied looking at her brother. “Would you and your…” She looked back at Ted as she headed toward the French doors. “Boyfriend care to join me?” she asked just before going through them, and shutting them back.
She turned with her fingernail between her teeth to see Ted standing at the French doors staring at her. She opened her mouth and stuck her finger in to lightly suck on it as she pulled it back out. She knew she was teasing him but she couldn’t help herself. She jumped into the water to cool herself down more than to actually swim.
