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.

Transcending Fire New World Bikers by Casey Moss

On A Dark Tide by Naomi Clark

Thanks for having me here today! I'm excited to share my latest Romance on the Go, ON A DARK TIDE, a story I constantly (and probably annoyingly) referred to as the Creepy Ocean Story whilst writing it. I'm a mermaid at heart. I love the ocean, whatever the season, whatever the weather. Nothing makes me feel as at peace or inspired as sitting by the shore. ON A DARK TIDE is one of several stories and books I've written with the ocean at its heart, and it won't be the last.

My jokey reference to it as the Creepy Ocean Story got me thinking about other creepy ocean stories. ON A DARK TIDE was partially inspired by that idea that the deep, vast ocean is concealing a very alien and inhospitable world from us - and that maybe we don't want to uncover it's secrets.

These three books share that theme, and were all incredibly formative reads for me growing up. Enjoy!
