The idea is to post just 150 words to capture the imagination. Today, I'm offering another small sampling from my unusual Victorian polyamorous romance written with a touch of reader-interactive art history: Loving Leonardo - The Quest (book 2 in the series)
Setting the stage: At this point in the story, Nicolas, Ellie, and Luca are following the clues in Leonardo da Vinci's book. Art historian Nicolas explains how the artist often blindfolded himself to enhance his other senses. The three lovers were tempted to try it for themselves.
I could see why Leonardo blindfolded himself. Submerged in touch and sound, scent and taste, I understood why he sought this heightened sensitivity. Deprived of sight, it was as if I’d been handed a key to unlock my other senses. The dichotomy of experiencing Luca’s firm well-muscled body and Ellie’s soft slender curves in complete sightlessness thrilled me beyond comprehension. Even the small hairs on my skin were as whiskers on a cat with which to feel their bodies in the stygian night.
I maneuvered around my lovers. The lavender ghost of their soap mingled with their heady musk of desire, and I tasted the salt and clean sweat of exertion upon their skin. All of it: sound, taste, touch, and scent painted a picture in my imagination. They were two exquisite dreams made flesh, and I swear I saw the glow of their souls through my blind eyes.
Here's the story
