I am continuing with my book “A Love More Precious Than Diamonds, which I released last year. Be aware that this book is an erotic romance and contains elements of a BDSM lifestyle, although there are none in this snippet. Danny has become the lover of Gem, a beautiful and sexy older woman, who likes to be spanked. Her husband allows the affair because he is impotent and cannot satisfy his wife. One day, while he is away on business, Gem takes Danny to a restaurant.
I did not quite anticipate that I would be the object of attention for an entirely different reason than the way I was dressed. The waiter escorted us to our table and I sensed several pairs of eyes scrutinising me as I passed. My face reddened with the attention and Gem laughed, in that lovely soft, throaty voice of hers.
“They are not looking because of the way you are dressed, Danny. The women are looking at you with envy. They are wondering how a woman of my age can attract a handsome, virile young man like you, and they are jealous. The men are looking at you with curiosity. They are wondering what you have to be able to attract a beautiful older woman like me. Enjoy the attention, Danny. You will only be young for a very short time.”
Danny was a 21-year-old student when he met Gem in London in 1992. She was the most beautiful, sensuous and sexy woman he had ever met, and she was some years older and married to a wealthy businessman. So why did she pick him from all the men she might have chosen?
Their affair was brief and dramatic, and introduced Danny to sexual passion, the like of which he had never experienced before. It also introduced him to the kind of woman who desired control and discipline in her life. Even though the affair lasted just a few weeks, it changed his life and changed his perception of the type of woman he wanted.
Twenty years later he met a young woman and, for the first time in his life, he fell in love; but fate was not kind, and the events of twenty years earlier came back to haunt him as he realised that he might lose the woman of his dreams. He was powerless to act. He could not rewrite his life history.
