Today I'm featuring Katherine Deane's latest release, The Coach's Discipline. She's chosen a snippet today that just demonstrates Nick's dominance. There's something to that natural dominance. Here's Katherine!
Thanks so much for having me here today Natasha! I am so excited about this release. This book has a lot of different components; hot sexy scenes, fun banter scenes, emotional scenes, and what I'm sharing today - a dominance scene. Nick oozes dominance - he doesn't even need to threaten a spanking. It just comes naturally to him. This scene takes place toward the beginning of the book. It's Claire's first time running with her new team and new coach.

Claire eased into the slower pace and tried to match his long strides.
“I’m sorry, Nick. I got kind of excited. Sorry. I’ll go to the back.”
“Switch!” She called out, and prepared to be passed by the other runners.
“No.” came his loud, forceful reply. “Stay. As. Is.”
“But I… I can’t pace. I’m no good at it. I’m going to hurt everyone by going too fast or too slow. Someone’s going to trip. You… you don’t want me to lead.” She stammered, feeling suddenly foolish.
“Who’s the coach here?” he scolded.
“You, sir.” Oh God, where did that come from?
“I coach—you obey,” he said sternly.
She nodded in reply.
Nick took over Morgan’s space next to her, pushing the rest of the group back. “Relax and run. I’ll be right here with you.”
“I don’t know.” She felt the anxiety re-build in her, and started picking up the pace again.
He touched her hip and tapped it slowly three times. They weren’t hard, or overtly sexual. The slow metronome cadence of finger taps on the side of her hips, reminded her of the second hand on her watch. Click, click, click; telling her to slow her rate.
“Breathe, Claire. Now relax.” His rich, deep voice had a calming effect on her.
She did as he said, dropping her shoulders, taking a deep slow breath, and relaxed back into the original pace.
