Seductive Studs & Sirens

It's Saturday and I'm participating in the Seductive Studs & Sirens mini hop.

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 (book 1 in the series)

Setting the stage: Ellie learns of Nicolas' on-ship encounter with the fair Dutchman. She can't quite comprehend how such an exchange would work out, so she asks Nicolas to explain. Needless to say, he's nervous about discussing such matters with his new wife.

Taking her at her word, I explained my encounter in the young man’s cabin. Her brows went together as she worked a maiden’s piecemeal imaginings into information.

“Wouldn’t he choke? I mean it’s rather large, isn’t it?” Her eyes went to my crotch while my heart pounded loud enough for me to hear. The fabric of the big top began to rise as the center pole lifted. Sure enough the small hand slipped from under mine in a tentative climb. Pausing, she met my eyes. “May I?”

I couldn’t fully comprehend my case of anxiety. In many ways, I too, was as untried as she. I might have had my male lover since the age of seventeen, but I’d never shared an intimate exchange with a woman before this moment. It wasn’t the lesson in futility I’d always assumed such a meeting would be either. I eyed the decanter again.

Here's the story

"One of the most erotic and sensual books written. Great characters. Ellie is one of my favorite heroines. "
