by Kelly Dawson
Less than a day after two gruff military officers detain her and escort her to a government facility, Melissa Malone finds herself leaving the planet on a newly-built spacecraft heading for one of the moons of Jupiter. Unknown to most of the world, an asteroid is hurtling toward Earth and, due to her unrivaled computer skills, Melissa is one of a select group of people chosen to rebuild civilization should humanity prove unable to avert the approaching cataclysm.
Melissa’s situation rapidly goes from bad to much worse when the ship is attacked and the crew is easily overcome by what she can only assume are aliens. Melissa is taken captive along with everyone else, but while the others are to be sold as slaves, she quickly discovers that her captors have special plans for her. She is promptly stripped naked for an intimate, incredibly humiliating medical examination, and when she fails to do as she is told during the shameful procedure she is punished thoroughly, leaving much more than just her bare bottom burning hot and sore. Once she is deemed suitable, Melissa is given as a bride to a powerful officer named Damian.
Though she is horrified by the prospect of being taken as a wife by a man who makes it clear that he will expect her absolute submission and will sternly punish any defiance, Melissa soon learns that Damian has laid claim to her for a reason. He is on a mission, sent by the leaders of his world to infiltrate and bring to justice the band of renegades who took her captive… and he needs her help.
Despite her fury at Damian’s willingness to compel her obedience with a firm hand applied to her bare bottom, she cannot help delighting in the way her body responds to his touch, and his skillful, dominant lovemaking brings her to heights of passion she never imagined possible. But when the time comes for her to put her abilities to the test with the fate of the Earth on the line, can she outwit a rogue computer expert and prove that Damian’s trust in her was well placed?

The Prime Minister’s heels echoed sharply on the slate floor as he hurried down the corridor towards the Chief of Security’s chambers once again. He seemed to be always running late these days, there was so much to organise, so much to do. Saving the world from impending doom was much harder than he’d thought it would be. Granted, he’d never given too much thought to an asteroid obliterating them before he’d made office, his concerns had been primarily with maintaining peace with the rival nations and keeping the economy afloat. Now, those matters seemed inconsequential in the face of Armageddon.
The underground bunkers were finished. They were big enough to fit half of the population of the capital city, with enough supplies to keep them going for a long time. As yet, he still had no idea how they would determine which people would be allowed access to the secret chambers and who would have to take their chances above ground; perhaps the Chief of Security would have some ideas for that horrible task.
He pushed open the door bearing the Chief of Security’s golden plaque and entered, not bothering with the formality of knocking.
“The rocket is ready, Sir,” the Deputy Chief of Security announced before he’d even pushed the door closed behind him. “The team put the finishing touches on it this morning. The computer analyst is programming its trajectory now, and there is a team on standby ready to hit the button as soon as the order is given. The asteroid is still too far away for our mission to be successful, and as you know, we will only have one chance. As soon as it is close enough, the rocket will be launched. At that stage, people will need to be securely within the underground bunkers, as we will only have hours, if not minutes, to escape if the rocket is unsuccessful.”
The Prime Minister nodded briskly at this announcement, clearly impressed by the progress his team had made.

Melissa still only had the one set of clothes, and she hurriedly put them back on, then sat back to watch Damian dress. He sure was a fine specimen of manhood, and desire pulsed through her again as she watched the muscles rippling on his hard body as he moved with graceful ease around the bedroom. Although a big man, he walked with a light step, almost like a dancer. He clearly knew she was watching him; he looked back over his shoulder and winked at her rakishly, running a hand through his short cropped hair. He flexed, his biceps bulging, before he put on the black shirt he’d discarded earlier. He knotted the silver tie with expert precision, his deft fingers moving so fast she couldn’t even make out what he was doing. She’d never seen a man look so good in a suit. He donned silver pants this time, to match the tie, and he didn’t bother with a jacket.
“Come.” He sat on the edge of the bed and held out his hand to her invitingly.
She knelt before him obediently, mindful of her promise to at least try to be obedient. Her bottom wasn’t sore any more, the gel had worked its magic, and she was quite enjoying being pain-free for now. It would be soon enough before she tested him again, she knew; she really wasn’t used to having decisions made for her constantly. She remained still as his clumsy fingers massaged her scalp, and she exhaled in satisfaction as tingles went down her spine. He worked her long locks free of tangles with a strange bristle-less brush that hovered above her head rather than touching the strands, before weaving her hair into a thick braid. She leaned against his legs, totally relaxed.

Already, Damian was falling in love with his wife. She was so fiery, so brave, so unlike any woman he’d ever met before. Gaining her submission was a challenge he was enjoying so far, although he certainly didn’t enjoy having to punish her so harshly. She tried so hard to hide her vulnerable side, but it was that vulnerability that appealed to his protective nature. It was that softness that made him want to spoil her, and it was her smile that lit up her whole face, that made him want to give her everything she wanted, just so he could see that smile again. Her soft curves felt so right under his hand as it rested lightly in the small of her back while he guided her around Mojaz. She was the perfect height—the top of her head reached to just below his shoulder, so she could nestle her head in the crook of his neck.
They took a taxi to the main shopping complex, and she was awed by the self-driving vehicle. He had to hide his laughter at her excitement at seeing so many clothing dispensers all lined up in one place, then he had to hide his boredom as Melissa stood in front of the screen, ordering herself an entire new wardrobe. He pulled the privacy screen closed around her as she stripped off for the electronic eye to measure her using the red laser beam, but he peeked through the crack in the screen at her body. She was beautiful, no doubt about it. His eyes roved over her lasciviously, his cock growing hard at the sight. He was pleased to see that the healing gel had done its work well, and her bottom was completely unmarked despite the spankings he’d given her earlier. He wanted her happy this afternoon, not sore.
“Are you finished?” he asked, smiling at his wife’s happiness as Melissa left the clothing dispenser area, her arms loaded down with bags full of new clothes. They spent the rest of the day being tourists on Mojaz, and he took great delight in showing her his favourite places on the planet. It was a good place to live—he knew Mel would be happy here in time.
There were no protests when it came time to share his bed that night, in fact she snuggled down into his arms happily, seeming to crave the comfort and security his body offered. Her body fit perfectly against his as she snuggled up to him and she felt so right in his arms. Not just good, not just great, but right. As though she belonged there. As though they were made for each other. He kissed her cheek softly, smiling to himself contentedly when he saw the little glimmer of a smile at the corner of her mouth. They would be happy together after all.
