5 HEARTS: "Libertine Island 3: The Runaway Sub by Diane Leyne is the third installment in her Libertine Island series, which is a spin-off of her Club Libertine series. This is the first of her Libertine Island books that I have read and let me say I was not disappointed. I loved Libertine Island 3: The Runaway Sub. It just may be my favorite one of her books that I have read thus far. I will definitely be reading more of her other books in both series and her other series as well. I enjoyed reading Rey, Caleb and Jen’s story. When Jen agreed to be a bridesmaid for her friend she never expected it to be on Libertine Island. She hasn’t had much luck in love but thought maybe she will have a fling of her own while on the island. That is when she meets Caleb the island doctor. He is intriguing and they agree to a night together. When things progress past the night she is pleasantly surprised. She is also surprised to find out that up until this point Caleb considered himself gay. She wonders about his partner back home and if he is still in love with him, or if there can be something between the two of them. When his partner shows up unexpectedly it complicates things. However, it could be the best thing that has ever happened to her. Has she found the one(s)? Or will she be left out in the cold? Caleb left his town to be the doctor on Libertine Island. In doing so he left his partner and previous life behind him. He has just settled into the grove of things when he meets Jen one of the guest of the island. She is here because she is a bridesmaid in the upcoming wedding. He is instantly attracted to her and it surprises him because he hasn’t been attracted to girls since he was in college. What he finds even more fascinating is how well they match up. She is the perfect sub for him. The only problem in the way is he is not over Rey his ex-partner. When Rey shows up unexpectedly and finds the two of them together, and things heat up and things begin to change. He is not sure exactly where it will go but he is going to enjoy the ride. Will things go back to the way they were? Or will they change for the better? Rey is a hard working detective that loves his sub Caleb. He would do anything for him. He would also do anything to keep him safe, so when he is almost shot outside his clinic he will stop at nothing to catch the perpetrator. He is devastated when he finds Caleb has left to be the doctor on Libertine Island. He is not sure what to do with himself or what to do about it. When he figures that he hasn’t left him for good he decides to go after him. When he arrives on the Island and finds him with Jen he is caught off guard because Caleb has never wanted anything to do with girls before. This could work out for the better, but he isn’t quite sure yet. Will this turn into something good? Or will he find that things are just too different? I really enjoyed Libertine Island 3. It is well written and kept me reading all the way through. I wish there was more to the story. I would definitely visit it again if there were. I liked the characters I think that they all played well together. I think my favorite character was Caleb because he had to discover who he was. He thought he knew but found out there was more than meets the eye. I also like the fact that Jen brought something out in him. I liked Rey as well but I think he had something to learn as well. He had a one track mind and once he got his mind set on something he didn’t gravitate to the left or the right. That can be a good quality however it can be a downfall as well. I would definitely recommend Libertine Island 3: The Runaway Sub to anyone who enjoys reading erotic BDSM romance reads." -- Isis, Sizzling Hot Books
Since he’d come to the island, he’d generally kept to himself other than a couple of disastrous attempts at fitting in. He’d avoided wearing a bathing suit until his wound had fully healed and even now generally wore a tank to cover it up. He didn’t want to talk about it. The one time someone did catch a glimpse of it, he’d implied that it was from his service days and had changed the subject. No one really knew much about him and Rey. A few people had seen the photo he kept on his desk at work, but they also saw the more prominent photo of him and his sister Melissa. They looked nothing alike and some assumed she was his sub. He encouraged the fiction and had even made teasing passes at female subs that he knew were not free to respond. Even after almost four months, he wasn’t ready to talk about his relationship with Rey to anyone.
Caleb could see the boat was on time and just pulling in. JJ knew the waters and he knew boats and steered up to the dock and tied it off with a minimum of fuss. Caleb walked down the dock and arrived at the boat just as JJ was helping the first woman out. She was small and curvy and quite beautiful with dark hair and eyes and very clearly related to Max. She was wearing a skimpy black bikini and carrying a large camera. And she was now arguing with JJ, who was trying to convince her that she couldn’t take any more photos without permission. It was almost funny watching the tiny spitfire try to intimidate their tall, taciturn boatman.
“Take me to your leader!” she demanded as she started walking quickly down the dock.
Caleb chuckled as JJ looked helplessly after her and then turned to Caleb.
“You’d better do what she says. Go after her. I’ll help Ms. Smith and send someone down for the luggage.”
JJ threw a grateful look at him before rushing after Maggie.
Caleb turned to the other woman waiting to debark. She was different from Maggie. Whereas Maggie was all fire and energy, this woman, who he presumed was Jen, was cool and calm and patient. She was standing in the boat watching the scene with mild amusement. She seemed to be average height with light sandy, almost-blonde hair tied back in a ponytail. She was on the plain side with her pale hair and skin, and he thought she was a little too thin, but it was hard to tell since she was covered up from head to toe, which was an interesting clothing choice for a BDSM resort. Then again, she might just be protecting her skin. She looked to be just a fair-skinned as Caleb himself, except without the freckles.
When Maggie and JJ were out of sight, she turned to him.
“Seems we’ve been abandoned.” Her voice was smooth and sexy and amused.
Caleb put a foot on the side of the boat and reached out a hand.”Allow me.”
Gracefully, she put her hand in his, took a step up onto the dock, and promptly caught her heel and went down hard on one knee. Luckily, Caleb’s grip prevented her from actually hitting the ground, but it looked like her ankle twisted quite painfully. Caleb swept her into his arms and strode down the dock to a bench where he sat her down gently.
Carefully, he eased the shoe off her foot. It didn’t seem to be swelling. Rotating it gently, he could feel her wince, but she didn’t try to pull away.
“I don’t think it’s broken. I’d like a better look, but I don’t think it’s anything to worry about.” He stood up.”But I can’t believe JJ let you on his boat wearing those things. He’s too professional for that.”
“It’s not JJ’s fault. He made me take them off for the ride. I slipped them back on just after we docked. Turns out they were safe on the boat. It’s dry land that I can’t walk on.”
On impulse, he swept her into his arms.”In that case, we’d better take no chances until I’ve had a chance to do a proper examination.”
She grinned, and it totally transformed her face. He wasn’t sure why he thought she was plain before. The brilliant blue eyes and her wide grin were infectious. She was beautiful. And his cock certainly thought so which surprised him greatly. He hadn’t been with a woman beyond some youthful experimentation, but there was something about the delicate bundle in his arms that made him both want to protect her and to spank her ass until it was a glowing pink and she was screaming for him to fuck her. Maybe it was the way she looked at him with complete trust, or maybe it was the way she wrapped her arms around his neck which pressed her small breasts against his chest, or maybe that bang on the head had been worse than they’d thought. He’d had a mild concussion from hitting the ground hard after getting shot. It shouldn’t have caused anything worse than a mild headache, but here he was, for the first time in his life, really aroused by a woman. What else could it be? His brains were definitely scrambled.
He shifted her higher in his arms so she wouldn’t feel his clearly very sexually confused and aroused cock.
“Are you a doctor?” she asked mildly, clearly not bothered at all to be in his arms.
“Then I’m all yours!”
Jen leaned into Caleb, his strong arms holding her close. She could feel the beat of his heart under her cheek and the hardness of his cock against her belly. His big hands gripped her ass, holding her tight, almost grinding her against him until they were both slightly breathless with need.
“All of the private rooms were booked,” he whispered into her ear.”And I didn’t think you’d want to play publicly the first time, but I’ve brought a nice selection of floggers back to my room along with cuffs, a spreader bar, a riding crop, a few nice-sized dildos, and a selection of butt plugs. How long has it been since you had a cock in your ass, sub?”
“Five years, Sir. But I can take you there, Sir, if that’s what you want.”
She heard Caleb sigh.”I’m happy to grant you the pain that you need, but I will not damage you. I won’t be taking your ass tonight, but it’s not too early to start getting it ready for my cock. Someday very soon, you’ll give me your ass and signify your complete surrender of your body to me.”
Jen felt her stomach do flip-flops at his words, and her nipples, which were already hard, seemed to turn to diamonds poking against his chest, and her pussy, which had been moist, now started leaking. She tried to rub her legs together to relieve some of the ache, but he had thrust one of his thighs between hers as they danced, so she tried to grind her clit against it.
“Naughty, naughty,” he admonished softly.”I can feel how wet you are already. You’ve left a wet spot on my pants!”
Jen colored and tried to pull away, but Caleb held her in place.
“Did I tell you I didn’t like it? If you are going to submit to me tonight, we have to talk about the rules. One of the rules for tonight is that you don’t get to come without permission, and I most certainly have not given you permission. And if you misbehave, you might not get it at all.”
“You plead very nicely, sub, but we’re not even naked yet. How are you going to restrain yourself from topping from the bottom? Do I have to gag you?”
Jen moaned with desire.
“So, the thought of being gagged turns you on. What else turns you on? I plan on trussing you up tightly when we get back to my place. You won’t be able to move a muscle, and you’ll be totally dependent upon my mercy. Do you like that thought? I’ll be able to flog you and fuck your pussy and clamp your tits and give you pleasure and pain as I choose. I can grant or deny you release, and you won’t be able to do a damned thing about it but take what I have to give you. Do you like that idea, sub?”
“Yes, Master. Yes please, Master.”
“Ah, my sweet little masochist. I like the sound of that title on your lips. I want to Master you tonight. Do you know how hard you are making me at the thought of doing all those things to you? I’m going to pop like a cork the minute I get inside you. I think I may have to alter my plan. When we leave here, I’ll take you to my cabin and let you in. You’ll freshen up as required and then kneel beside my bed awaiting my return. You’ll find two pairs of cuffs on the night table. I want you to strip naked, including removing these white cuffs that the hotel provided that showed you are a guest not in the lifestyle. You’ll replace them with the cuffs I’ve left for you, black with green trim, signifying that you have a Dom at the resort.
“Then I’ll make a quick trip to the toy store and pick up a gag and maybe a blindfold as well. When I return, you’ll be kneeling, eyes downcast, in the correct presentation position. When I stand in front of you, you will bow your head to the ground and acknowledge me as your Master. Then you will unfasten my pants and suck my cock. Do you understand?”
Jen thought she’d go up in flames right out on the dance floor.
“Yes, Sir.” The thought of him dominating her so thoroughly had awakened desires that she’d thought where gone forever. She’d been a slave to Hank in the bedroom, and she yearned to hand over total control again. She was only going to be at the hotel for two more nights, and she intended to spend both of them submitting to Caleb if he wanted her.
