The Fugitives's Sexy Brother: A Visit With Annabeth Leong

BDSM Comes in Different Flavors
By Annabeth Leong

BDSM can seem like a monolithic practice, but really there are as many ways to do it as there are couples that practice it.

In my latest release, The Fugitive’s Sexy Brother, I included three BDSM romances—one between the two main characters, and two subplots with minor characters. I wanted each of them to feel distinct, so I made sure to vary the tone of the way they used restraints and other BDSM techniques. Here are short descriptions of the three styles I used, along with brief excerpts from the scenes.

1.  Sweet and caring

One of the sexiest things I’ve ever heard from a lover was, “I want to hold you in my lap and brush your hair for a while.” Fernando and Carolina, who practice this style in the book, use BDSM to express deep affection for each other. Restraints are part of the way that Fernando fusses over Carolina, and they free Carolina to enjoy the sensation of being cared for without feeling the need to reciprocate.


He knelt beside her and she wrapped her arms around his neck like a child. Fernando lifted her up, then into the tub. Finally, Carolina gave him the lover’s smile he craved. She held his gaze as she put her hands up to the discreet metal bar he had installed just above the lip of the tub.
“You know what to say if you want out,” he reminded her.
“Right.” He clipped on the restraints, trapping her hands above her head and leaving her body at his mercy. Then Fernando turned on the water in the tub, careful to move her legs away from the stream until it warmed to a pleasant temperature. He covered the drain, then scooped a few handfuls of the lavender beads off the floor and into the water.
Water filled the tub and the scent of lavender wafted more strongly through the air. At first all Fernando did was play with her hair. He undid the bun, then finger-combed her hair out in long, black tresses to either side of her face. He took her brush off the sink and used it until the water level rose high enough to make her breasts float.
When Fernando finally set the brush down, he took up a washcloth. He anointed it with honey-scented soap, then leaned over the edge of the tub and stroked it slowly down the side of her face and neck. She purred under its rough touch. He rinsed the soap away with water poured from a cupped hand.
Carolina smiled in response. He saw her relax, her arms loose and comfortable where they hung from her wrist restraints.

2.  Challenging and playful

Javier and Emily play BDSM games with each other to test and explore each other’s boundaries. Through BDSM, they learn about each other’s likes, dislikes, and personalities. Their style involves a lot of cursing, a lot of mock-angry glares, and a lot of giggling.


Javier snapped one cuff onto her left wrist and the other onto her right ankle, trapping Emily in a half-cross-legged position. It was a clever way to restrain her and she shivered with the sense of helplessness it gave her. If she tried to move, she’d be off-balance and easy to control. Javier kissed her forehead. “How are you doing?”

She smiled bravely. “Good.”

“Glad to hear it. Now, I’m going to assume you want to put your pants back on before we walk back into your building.”

“Uh, yeah.”

“And they’re not going to go on very well while your leg is attached to your arm like that.”

“So I need to get these handcuffs off.”

Javier’s smile showed a lot of teeth. “Oh, I’m not going to let you have anything that could be used to pick locks. You’re going to have to convince me to take them off.”

Another jolt of arousal quivered through her body. “What would convince you?”

“Well, I took your pants off because I want to see you come. A lot. But.” Here he paused and smiled wickedly. “I’m going to be too busy driving to make you come myself. If you’re very good and come three times before we get to your apartment, then I’ll take the handcuffs off and give you back your pants before I take you inside.”

Emily worried she’d drip onto the seat. “And if I don’t?”

“It’s going to be really interesting to see how you move when you’re restrained like that, isn’t it?” Javier started the car while Emily gaped. “Hey, I was nice,” he added. “You’re right handed, and that’s the one I left free. Imagine if you were trying to bring yourself off three times with your non-dominant hand.”

3.  Harsh and masterful

Neva craves Guy’s strong hand. When she’s in the hands of an expert, Neva feels a deep sense of peace. She enjoys difficult scenes and pain, and seeks the meditative experience of finding the pleasure hidden beyond these obstacles.


“Show me how you feel, Guy.”

He swallowed. “I don’t think you want that.”

She raised an eyebrow at that. “Oh, really? You think I can’t take what you’ve got?”

The next few moments happened in a blur that she had to decode. Guy charging at her. Her shirt stripped off with efficient force. Her bra unclasped, yanked free, then tied around her wrists. His mouth on her nipples, first lips and tongue, then plenty of teeth.

Neva squirmed and yelped from the shock of his grasp, but Guy took the tip of her nipple pointedly between two teeth and she stilled immediately. Fear and arousal warred in her body as he pulled his mouth back, stretching the delicate flesh away from her body and pulling her breast taut. She winced as he continued to pull, pain flowering over her breast.

As the sensation hit her synapses, her instinct to surrender kicked in and she belonged to him completely. “Guy,” Neva whispered, “I want you to hurt me.”

He opened his mouth and let her breast fall out. “I don’t do soft,” he said. “You won’t be getting a play spanking from me. I want to own you.”


He removed her jeans, shoes, and panties.

“If you want me to stop what I’m doing at any point, you tell me so. I’ll stop immediately.”

“I’m not going to ask you to stop.”

“You don’t know what I’m going to do to you.”

“You don’t know what I’ve fantasized about you doing.”


Emily Boysen is sick of low-level bounty hunting jobs that don’t pay her rent, and sick to death of her ex-boyfriend taking credit for her work. Ready to claim her due, she takes on the quarry of a lifetime, the notorious Fernando Bonavita. But instead of the fugitive, she captures his sexy younger brother, Javier.

Javier Bonavita never wanted to know the truth about his older brother’s activities, instead protecting him out of loyalty. When he uses his hacking skills to pose as Fernando, he never expects to uncover crimes he can’t stomach. Beautiful Emily has no idea how glad he is to be in her custody—as long as he’s her prisoner, he doesn’t have to face his brother.

Passion flares between Emily and Javier, and soon he’s putting the handcuffs on her. Suspicion grows along with their feelings, though. A sinister plot centers around Fernando, and untangling it will test their loyalties to the limit.
