Tao stood behind Drake as they waited in the foyer of Griffin’s house.
“You have nothing to fear, girl,” Drake said.
“Master Griffin has…” She quickly stopped what she wanted to say.
Drake turned around and looked at her. She was standing with her hands behind her back and her gaze to the floor.
“Finish your thought, Tao.”
“It would be rude, Master. We are in Master Griffin’s house.”
“I want to hear what you were thinking.”
Tao looked up then gaze around the room to make sure Master Griffin was nowhere in sight. “Master Dante was a cruel man, yet…the vibes I get from Master Griffin…” She felt Drake’s hand gently go down her hair. She looked up into her Master’s eyes. “He is soulless, Master. He frightens me.”
“I will not let anything happen to you, Tao.”
“I know, Master.”
“There is such unrest in this house, Master.”
“I feel that too, girl. Like I said don’t worry.”
His smile made her instantly relax.
“Well, did Dante send you to drag me back home?” Angelique said as she entered the foyer.
“I haven’t spoken with Dante,” Drake said. “I’m assuming Dante knows you are here/”
“Habu tracked me down.” Angelique looked over at Tao. “Did this little bitch miss Dante’s cock.”
“My submissive is none of your business, nor will she be dragged into yours and Dante’s drama.”
“You getting a bit of an edge on you, Drake?” Angelique ran her hand up Drake’s shirt.
“I won’t be dragged into your drama either.” Drake gently removed Angelique’s hand.
Angelique stepped back. She looked at Tao standing there like a frightened little mouse. “This little bitch didn’t deserve my husband anyways.”
“Mistress Angelique, please don’t be rude to Master’s guests,” Liam said as he came into the room. “Master Drake, please let me show you to my office. Master wishes for you to wait in there as he finishes up a few things.”
“I think, more to the point, he wants me out of the way when Dante shows up,” Drake said.
“Dante is coming here?” Angelique said.
“You had to have known this, Mistress Angelique. I’m sure my Master mentioned it.”
Angelique turned to Liam. “No, he didn’t mention it.” She knew she felt Dante’s presence earlier. Fuck, he was on this damn island. She had to get her sweets out of this house and safely tucked away so Dante wouldn’t hurt them.
“You looked a bit frightened, Angelique. That is an odd response hearing the news that your husband will be here,” Drake said.

Karma, baby. We all have to face this bitch at one time or another. Angelique was so wrapped up in trying to get the biggest piece of Dante’s heart that she forgot that her submissives need her love and guidance. Dante has evolved as a Master, but not as a husband. When Angelique walks away from him, he realizes he may just lose the woman who is his other half.
Master Griffin has lashed out at everyone that tries to hurt him or his. He has schemed and plotted to run this community. Yet, when he tries to take on Master Drake he comes up against an opponent he can’t beat.
Master Mato had nothing but respect for Master Griffin until he is given a submissive named Tao from Master Drake. Drake’s only concern is for Tao’s happiness and he believes she will find it with Mato, yet he doesn’t force his will on her, he leaves it for her to decide. Mato is forced to see Griffin in a different light because of Drake’s actions.
Who will be the lucky ones and walk away unscathed from Karma’s wrath?
