Weekend Writing Warriors for Oct 8

shade

Welcome once again to a snippet of my work for Weekend Writing Warriors (www.wewriwa.com) where a group of writers post 8 – 10 line snippets of their work for others to read and comment. When you have finished here, please pop along and see what other writers are sharing.

I am still sharing excerpts from my last book, Out of the Darkness, an erotic romance (mainly because I don’t have anything else ready to show you yet! I’m a bit slow in writing.) I am continuing from last week’s snippet, where the man she meets at the airport says “As someone once said, very few men on their deathbed say that they wished they had spent more time at the office—is that not true, Marianne?” Marianne responds:

“Yes, you’re right. My father worked himself into an early grave and never got the chance to enjoy the fruits of his labor.”

That was a lie, because I never knew my father. For all I knew, he could be the British Prime Minister. But it just seemed the right thing to say at the time, and for some years I had talked to people about this fantasy father, as though it was more acceptable to have had a father and lost him, than never to have had a father at all. Perhaps it was the lack of a father that made me search for a fatherly figure in my life; a search that had only brought fleeting happiness so far.

“Oh, I work hard, but I play hard, too. Do you play hard, Marianne?”

I shivered and half turned in my seat to look at his face. Sure enough, there was the glint in the eye and the almost imperceptible facial expression that I had seen before, and I knew that he was a Dominant.

Pleasure or pain corset

Out of the Darkness is an erotic romance, with elements of Dominance/submission between the characters involved. But it is basically the familiar story of a woman’s search for a man who will love her, and she him. Out of respect for the other writers, I am not including much erotica. If you want to read spicier extracts, go to the FB page for this book.(https://www.facebook.com/outofthedarknessnovel/)

She is one of the most beautiful and photographed women in the world.

She is living every young girl’s dream.

But sometimes the dream and the reality don’t match up.

The missing father; the predatory stepfather; the abusive lover; they all let her down.

Then she meets the man of her dreams – but fate is cruel and she is left alone again…

… until a powerful and charismatic Dom, who excites her like no other man before, steps into her life.

Is he the man she has been seeking her whole life? Will he show her the way out of the darkness and into the loving, submissive relationship she has always craved?

Another Hot Night in Havana – a short story

Coi3_whVUAQNCTa

She danced alone, swaying her hips to the erotic samba rhythm. It was hot, so hot—both her and the temperature of the steamy tropical night. Her eyes were closed in complete indifference to the people surrounding her as sweat trickled down her chest and into the deep channel between her luscious breasts. I was mesmerized, as were all the men in the room. I wanted to lick the droplets of sweat from her naked breasts and press my body against her undulating hips. Her nipples were standing out beneath the flimsy dress that barely covered her and I yearned to take them in my mouth as I explored the sweet cheeks of her bottom with my hands.

“Forget it.”

I turned sideways to where an old man was sitting, alone like me.

“She’ll take you out back and make sweet love to you, sure. But you’ll come back minus your wallet, believe me.”

I turned back towards the woman, whose hands were now pressed against her thighs, pulling the dress further up her legs. It seemed to me that she was inviting me in, drawing my eyes to her smooth, shapely legs. I turned back towards the old man.

“Believe me, I know. I was here last summer. She had the lot—driver’s licence, five hundred dollars, credit card. This time I came with a cheap plastic wallet and a hundred bucks. She’s welcome to that. For that body of hers I’d willingly lose it.”

I stood to walk towards the woman, my body pulsing with need, but was stopped by a hand on my shoulder. It was the old man.

“Sorry, buddy. For a hundred you don’t even get within five yards of her.”

It seemed she now had a ‘minder’ and he was calling the shots.

“So what would it take to have a private dance with her, somewhere nearby? Just the two of us?”

He looked me up and down—no doubt assessing me to see how much money he could squeeze from me.

“You’ll need a lot more than a hundred bucks, buddy. You can have a half hour for two-fifty. And I stand outside the door in case you’re trouble.”

I looked again at the voluptuous beauty just a few yards away, weighing up whether I wanted to spend the other money I’d stashed in my sock. I decided to play the long game.

“Not sure I want to pay that price. I’ll just buy me a drink and watch her dance.”

I moved to a table next to the dance floor, and ordered a whisky.

The girl still had her eyes closed, but she sashayed a little closer to my table, clearly aware of my presence. I doubted that she would remember me. A hundred guys had probably passed this way since I was last here.

She turned away from me so I could see her firm, round bottom undulating beneath the dress. I refrained from the temptation of reaching out and touching her, not keen on being thrown onto the street, probably with a broken nose. She was clearly advertising her wares and I was becoming uncomfortably aware of her effect on me.

The man sidled up to the table, keen to make a deal.

“Special rate, since you had a bad experience last time. Let’s say two hundred bucks, and I’ll throw in an extra ten minutes too.”

I turned to look at the old man, who was unshaven and dressed in frayed jeans and a slightly grubby white t-shirt. He didn’t look like a pimp. I shook my head.

“Nah! I’ll just watch tonight. Maybe I’ll come back tomorrow.”

The man looked disappointed, but backed away. I ordered a second whisky and leaned back in the chair. The music changed to yet another Latin rhythm. The fan above the dance floor rotated slowly, as though it too was worn out by the heat. It barely even moved the air.

The woman opened her eyes and looked straight into mine. She smiled gently with plump, luscious lips that I pictured clamped around my hardening cock, before turning away once again. She seemed to know that her rear view was mesmerising to me—her selling point. I wondered if she would let me spank her. I could almost hear the crisp crack of my hand contacting that lovely bottom.

The man returned. This time he looked a little desperate.

“Okay, you win. Times are hard. A hundred dollars for a half hour.”

I nodded my acceptance.

“Follow me.”

I followed the man through a door and down a corridor to a small room whose only furniture was a bed, a chair and a sink in the corner. He stood in the doorway as I surveyed the room. The sheets looked clean, at least.

He held out his hand. “Money up front. She’ll be along in a minute.”

I took the hundred dollars from my wallet and handed it over. The man counted it and left, closing the door behind him. I wondered if I’d been a fool. There was no guarantee the girl would come.

Oh she came all right. The door opened and she leaned against the door frame, the sweat of her dancing making her dress cling to her body.

“Hi, honey. I heard you wanted to see me.”

She smiled—a gloriously full smile, revealing a perfect set of white teeth, and walked towards me, sashaying those hips and making me instantly hard. The anticipation sent an electric current through my body. I was in for a treat.

She closed the door behind her and came to meet me. I found my voice at last. “You looked so sexy on the dance floor.”

She smiled. “I try my best. You got the money?”

I was startled. “I already paid the old man.”

“What old man? I don’t have a pimp. I’m strictly a lone operator. It’s one hundred and fifty for half an hour, two hundred dollars for an hour.”

I groaned inwardly. Not again! I really was a sucker. But I reached down to my sock for my reserve supply. There wasn’t a chance I was going to leave now. I handed over two hundred dollars. I planned to get my money’s worth.

Welcome again to the weekly blog where a group of writers get together and share snippets of 8 – 10 lines from their work, for others to read and comment. Once you have seen mine, why not pop along to the site (www.wewriwa.com) to see what others have written.

I am again taking an excerpt from my book Out of the Darkness, an erotic romance. Marianne, a beautiful and successful model appears to have a charmed life, but has faced struggles that are often overlooked by those who envy her success and lifestyle. She longs to find love, and someone who won’t let her down, as other men have done. One day, when she is in her mid-twenties, she meets a man in the First Class departure lounge, waiting for her New York flight. She feels drawn to him immediately. (Slight punctuation amendment to fit the rules.)

“So, Marianne, what takes you to New York, work or pleasure? Or perhaps the two come together for you.”

“Mainly work, although I am hoping to do a little shopping while I’m there. And you—work, I suppose?”

“Yes, but I never overlook the need for a little pleasure too. Life is too short for all work and no play. As someone once said, very few men on their deathbed say that they wished they had spent more time at the office—is that not true, Marianne?”

I loved the way he looked directly at my face as he spoke my name, even though he was sitting alongside. He gave me his complete attention, unlike many men who seemed to look everywhere but my face when they were talking to me. I often thought I should have a second pair of eyes on my breasts, so men could look at both at the same time.

So has Marianne finally found the man she has been looking for?

Weekend Writing Warriors for Sept 24

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, where a group of authors get together to share a snippet from their work, for others to read and comment. When you’ve done here, why not pop over and read other people’s snippets. There are some excellent writers, in all genres, who contribute. (www.wewriwa.com)

I am staying with my recent release, Out of the Darkness, an erotic romance. I am leaving the burgeoning romance of last week, and jumping ahead a few years. Sadly the romance between Marianne and Chad is over. Marianne is alone again and ruminates on her life so far. (Slight punctuation changes to conform to rules.)

I’m not sure that even I know the real me. My life had changed so often since I’d been ‘discovered’ at the tender age of fifteen, while walking down the King’s Road in Chelsea, and within two years I was pictured on the covers of all the glossy magazines. It all happened so quickly—one day I was a fairly ordinary London schoolgirl, and the next I was travelling the world and being wined and dined by the world’s glitterati. Then there were the men—mostly, they were older, successful and wealthy men who bought me champagne and dinner and then thought they owned me. Some of them were very powerful, men you would not want to cross for fear of the consequences. A few were kind, but many were not. I sometimes wondered if the fault lay with me. Did I do or say things to attract the wrong type of man? Did I give off the wrong vibes, or was I simply unlucky? I had no idea.

Welcome again to the regular weekly slot for Weekend Writing Warriors, where authors leave snippets between 8 and 10 lines of their work, for others to read and comment. When you have done here, why not go to see what other writers are contributing. (www.wewriwa.com)

I am continuing with my latest release, Out of the Darkness. Marianne, a top model with a poor track record of picking men, meets a photographer called Chad. Their attraction for each other is immediate. They discover that they both come from the same part of London, although Chad is quite a lot older.

“We were practically neighbors then. I was brought up at Manor House, just up the road—although, I have to say that you left Finsbury Park before I was even born.”

“You really know how to flatter a guy, don’t you,” he said dryly. “Let him know how ancient he is when he is in the presence of probably one of the most desirable women in New York right now.”

I laughed. “Oh, I don’t buy into all that crap. I’m the face of the moment. Pretty soon, there will be a younger and prettier girl to take my place. Then someone will spot me and see a couple of wrinkles on my face and say, ‘Didn’t that used to be Marianne Delaney? Boy, she sure has let herself go, hasn’t she?'”

I wrote this for last week, intending to post in York, where I went for a weekend writing festival. Unfortunately internet access was difficult and I was having too much fun anyway on Saturday night to post! So I am afraid that I missed the deadline. I am away again this weekend, but will do my best to get to you—but might not be until early next week. I’m taking Dad to his Royal Marines Reunion.

Weekend Writing Warriors for Sept 3

Welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors, when a group of authors post snippets of their work for others to read and comment. When you’ve read this, why not go and see what other authors are writing. (www.wewriwa.com)

I am continuing with Out of the Darkness. Chad, the photographer, is showing Marianne around the exhibition of his work. She makes a discovery.

We came to a group of four photographs of a nude woman. She wasn’t very young— probably around forty—but she was beautiful and very sensual. The photographs were black and white, with a mixture of light and shade. I knew, without any doubt, that the woman was, or had been, his lover. She looked at the camera, or more likely, the man behind the camera, with such love it almost radiated out of the picture.

But there was another powerful message coming from the pictures, one that not everyone might pick up on. The woman was his submissive. I was certain about that. I turned to look at Chad’s face as he looked at the pictures and, almost without thinking, I whispered to him.

“You were her Master.”

Some Amazon Reviews:

 “This is certainly not a run of the mill B.D.S.M type novel. This is a book of exquisite tenderness and a beautifully described relationship that really moved me. Marianne a young model has to go through so much to find true love. A very thoughtful, evocative but sexy read.”

“A sumptuous, wonderfully written love story between a young lover who lost her partner and finally finds another. A Romeo and Juliette love story with interesting characteristics and magnificent sensual love scenes. Love lost and re-found. To quote the author “I had come out of the despair of darkness and into the hope and optimism of the eternal sunshine.” 

Publisher’s Note: This sweet and sensual love story is a revised and newly edited version of a book previously released under the same title but with the pen name Rachel De Vine.

Weekend Writing Warriors for August 27

Welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors, when a group of authors post snippets of their work for others to read and comment. When you’ve read this, why not go and see what other authors are writing. (www.wewriwa.com)

I am continuing with Out of the Darkness. Marianne, a famous model, is helped to escape from over-zealous fans in an art gallery, by a man who turns out to be the photographer who is the star of the exhibition. They share a drink in a nearby bar and Chad, the photographer, invites her to return with him to the gallery for a private showing, now the people have left. (Slight punctuation change to stay within the remit.)

We walked past endless shots from the many countries and cultures that Chad had visited over the last ten years, and he kept up a fascinating description of his work. Some of the pictures were incredibly moving, while others were stunning in their simplicity. I wished that I could produce something as meaningful as that, rather than being paid a lot of money to stand around and wear expensive clothing or wearing very little, when the occasion demanded. But when I told Chad this, he dismissed my self-deprecation.

“Don’t knock what you do—you act out a beautiful dream for the man or woman looking at your performance, but you do not use words or movement like conventional actors. Your job is much harder. You have to convey the dream by a single look, a single pose—silent acting. Not many people can do that. Also, beauty is important in a world that is often ugly and cruel. It helps us to forget the ugliness, at least for a while.”
