Mid Week Tease - The Exhibition

Welcome to my portion of Mid Week Tease. A special "Thanks" to fellow author Sandra Bunino for creating and organizing MWT.

This week I thought I'd share a little somethin' from my newest release, The Crimson Rope.

From my story, The Exhibition.

     I stood there slack-jawed and wondered when Slater Nolan had changed up his artistic medium. At the last showcase Jayce, Slater’s younger brother and my best friend, had taken me to, Slater showed off his gritty, urban photography in an upscale Chicago loft.

                  But not this time.

     This time we were in a large warehouse, staring at huge painted canvases. Each canvas was its own vignette and formed the backdrop for life-sized, erotic sculptures.

     Jayce and I moved with the flow of the onlookers, stopping to see Slater’s next set. Only they weren’t carved. They were nude, muscled-up, body-painted men. While some were draped in chains, others held whips, cuffs or paddles. I almost reached out to touch one of them. They were so well painted it was hard to tell the difference between them and Slater’s sculptured statues.

     Jayce tugged on my arm, bringing my attention to a bevy of beautiful naked women who had been elevated up from the concrete floor. Their stage was a slow spinning podium. Like the men, the women didn’t move. They were all frozen in haunting forms.

     Live mannequins.

     I held on to Jayce’s arm as we did a well-timed one-eighty, staring at it all. The only way I could best describe it, was “bondage artwork.” Each woman had been intricately tied with crimson ropes. Some were bound at the wrists, while others were tied off at the ankles and thighs. Even more of Slater’s female displays dangled from the overhead rafters, their petite frames completely wrapped in elaborate rope configurations. Everywhere I looked, it was like the Cirque du Soleil of sensuality and sexual expression. Even if you weren’t into kink, or art, it was impossible to miss the stinging overtones of pleasure. Of pain. Of dominance. Of submission. More than an art exhibition, I was standing in the middle of a full-blown, invitation only, erotic show.

This week I've got a little something from Forever & Always, Two Hearts, One Soul Duet: Book Two which is soon to be released.



With the phone to his ear, Cayden turned and looked at me, his sapphire gaze roaming from the hair piled in a messy bun atop my head, to my bubble-gum-pink-painted toenails before he smiled. My heart thrummed. Reaching out, he pulled me onto his lap where I willingly went, and picked up a pen from beside my laptop. Then, he crooked his head, holding the handset to the cordless in place against his shoulder to free his other hand and took a hold of mine. Curious, I wondered what he was up to. Cayden turned my hand over, palm side up. Swiped his fingers softly over my palm once. Wrote, I Love U,boldly across it. And then he curled my fingers closed, securing the words tight within the palm of my hand before he moved his hands from mine and took hol…
