------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He carried her in his arms and slowly walked towards the door to his hotel room.

She hadn’t thought their interaction would lead them to a secluded space so fast but he hadn’t given her the room to breathe or think. Immediately he broke their kiss off, he had stared deeply into her eyes, then at the growing crowd inside the hall before muttering the words, “Do you think we should leave here before anyone realizes we are here?” Her heart had been pacing rapidly at the time. While his eyes kept her dazed, the desire she saw in them made her realize how much she wanted him. So, she had nodded slowly, allowing him to hold her hand and guide her back to the doors.

“I intended to stay a day before returning home.” He said. “My hotel room is just a five minute drive away.”

And that had been it. It had felt like a minute since they had both stepped into his car and had driven to the hotel. Marie didn’t keep track of what happened afterwards but she knew she was in his arms now and her breasts tingle with expectations while her entire body craved for the shove of his weight.

When he opened the door and stepped into the hotel room, she let her eyes quickly trail through the dimness of the room before settling on the bed at the Far East corner. Thomas quickly took her to it and slowly dropped her petite body on the neatly tucked sheet. He didn’t mutter a single word. He just knelt between her widely stretched legs and smashed his lips against hers again.

She let his tongue wiggle with hers. His lips tasted hers slowly at first before he let out a loud groan and hungrily began to nibble on her lower lip. “I have thought about this day for so long.” He whispered.

She had thought about it too but she was unable to express herself. He stopped kissing her lips and began to drop kisses along the length of her neck. When his hand dipped into her dress to cup her left breast, Marie let out a loud moan and clung to him. He slid the strands of her dress off her shoulders afterwards and let the light fabric slip down her body. Immediately, having access to her bra and panties, he tugged at them and got them out of the way too.

“Beautiful as always.” He said. “Always so beautiful and sexy.”

Nothing affected her more than the way his lips hungrily reached for her nipples. She buried her fingers into his hair and dragged him closer to her. He bit gently into her breasts, taking the cue that she wanted every bit of pleasure he could give her. Afterwards, his fingers began to trail the length of her sides before reaching for the space between her thighs. In an instant, his index and middle fingers began to caress her clitoris, rousing breathtaking desires inside of her.

“Oh Thomas!”

She was moaning and sighing at the same time. She had dreamt about his hands on her body for so long that it felt magical that it was eventually happening. When his fingers finally dipped into her pussy, her thighs shuddered violently while her heart paced rapidly than it already did.

“Fuck me as you have done in the past, Thomas.” She told him. “Make me climax like no one have made me cum since….”

The rest of the words that she had intended were unable to slip off her lips. A gasp escaped her lips instead as he quickly unzipped his pants, drew out his hard cock and quickly dipped its tip into her waiting cunt.

“Just like that?” He asked. “Is that how you want me to fuck you?”

She was speechless. All she could do was to nod her head rigorously as he pushed harder, shoving the entire length of his cock deep into her dripping wet cunt.

Make me remember everything about the past, she thought to herself. Make me love you once again. Make me feel like the adventurous teenager that I was, full of fun and life. And it was as if Thomas could read her thoughts. He began to move, ramming in and out of her while he muttered words of admirations…words that described the endless desire that he felt for her.

“You left me so many years ago, but I couldn’t stop loving you.” He said. “Even now, I can’t stop filling your entire hole with my cock.” “Don’t stop.” She told him. “Don’t stop doing both.”

With the way his thrust became more rapid, it was obvious he wouldn’t. He was already driving her towards a rippling orgasm and she could feel the walls of her cunt clenching in anticipation. Also, her heart became heavy with concerns about her marriage…about his…and the uncertainty about everything…nothing would be the same.

“I am cumming!”

Thomas’ announcement coincided with the second that an electrifying jolt coursed through Marie’s spine. Welcoming her own climax, she wrapped her legs around his waist and pulled him towards her, getting his last thrust to dig deeper into her cunt.

Thomas let out a loud groan, gave his last thrust and fell atop of her. Marie on the other hand lost control of her entire body which shuddered calmly as she climaxed. She lost control of her breath though and began to gasp quietly through her mouth as Thomas slowly moved to sprawl beside her on the bed. “That was frigging amazing, Marie.” He grinned.

Before she could mutter a response to his words though, he raised his body so he could rest his head on his palm and gazed lovingly into her eyes.

“Come back to me, Marie.” He said. “My life has been incomplete without you. I am divorced now. You can be happy with me.”

Marie could only stare back into his eyes, confused beyond redemption. Her instincts had been right. Nothing was ever going to remain the same. Especially with her marriage.

---------------------------- ----------------------------

It was obvious that he felt both elated and nervous to see her too. For a second, he said nothing. He only stared at her while she felt an unusual excitement coursing through the middle of her thighs. Finally, when he stepped towards her, smiling mischievously, Marie cursed under her breath, wondering why her nipples had chosen that period to become taut. She could feel them hardening underneath her bra and forcibly piercing through the fabric to become visible dots on her dress.

“Indeed, it has been too long. Almost a life time” He told her. “I almost thought I wouldn’t recognize you.”

Marie blinked twice. She hadn’t thought he would even look forward to recognizing her.

“You knew I was going to be here?” She asked him.

“More like I look forward for over a week to meeting you here.” He replied her with a grunt.

He was too blunt and it made her more breathless. She stared at him as he finally closed the distance between them and held her hand.

“It feels so good to see you, Marie.” He whispered. “How have you been?”

Marie was unable to mutter a word. She only stared into his eyes and reminisced on the hours she had spent, thinking about all the sex they had had. She had thought ceaselessly about those eyes. She had thought about his hands on her body. She had thought about his cock – she had thought about every damn thing that could get her body to react exactly the way it did currently as he held her hand.

“How have I been?” She finally muttered under her breath. “Alive and well.”

“Glad to hear that.” He said.

“I found the life I craved so much when I left for college.” She told him. “I began my own firm and got married too.”

“Oh great!” He said.

With every response that came from him, his head inched lower towards her while his warm breath settled on her face. She willed herself to step away from him but her body wouldn’t listen. Eventually, unable to do anything else, Marie blurted out the rippling emotions in her heart.

“I have everything I ever dreamed of.” She told him. “But I suddenly am not happy. I don’t have you. I have thought of you in the past, one week more than I have thought about you. It's been too!”

He paused and for a moment, she thought she had said too much. A furrow appeared over his forehead while his hands slowly fell on her waist.

“Great then.” He finally whispered. “It means I haven’t been the only insane one in the past two weeks.”

His lips smashed against hers before she could figure out what he meant.

Time Will Reveal by Natasha Brooks (Blog series from the upcoming book: Love Is Just A State of Mind) part 3

TITLE: Time Will Reveal (PART Three)

AUTHOR: Natasha Brooks

GENRE: Erotic Romance

ABOUT THE STORY: Time Will Reveal is part of the upcoming book: Love is Just a State of Mind (Desperate Housewives Stories of Love). Marie wanted to leave the confines of her little town and live a life filled with more fun, achievements and adventure. So she decided that a few months after her high school graduation she would hop onto a bus, landed in an entirely different city, attended college, started a business, married a man she didn’t love and had never for once looked back. That was until she received an invitation to attend her high school reunion This would stir up old memories from the past that she left behind. Would she rekindle a love with her old high school sweetheart Thomas? Only time will Reveal.

---------------------------- ----------------------------

The school reunion had been scheduled for a weekend. As soon as it was Friday, Marie had spent her entire morning to tie up loose ends at work so she could be on the road as early as six the next morning without having to worry about anything.

She had looked forward to the reunion the entire week. She had also looked forward to seeing Thomas – so much that she had spent every evening, sitting dreamily on her porch while she thought about him.

She tried as much as possible not to think about him as she drove to the school. It was a four-hours drive and throughout the entire time, she distracted herself with the thoughts of the changes everyone probably could have gone through. She had read in the paper that Tammy Martin, her onetime high school friend, had married twice and was currently living an exotic lifestyle as an “urban fashionista” – whatever that was.

Chang Lee, the only Asian-American in class at the time and also the only boy that was constantly ridiculed because of his chubby cheeks and thick brown skin, had also gone through unbelievable transformations. There were various adult magazines that had his totally enthralling nude picture on its front cover; in a nutshell, Chang had worked out for over six years, building a perfect mouthwatering masculine figure.

Marie certainly couldn’t think about them all. She was glad a few more thoughts crossed her mind though before she finally drove her car into the large compound of the school, a feeling of nostalgia instantly washing over her. For a second, after she parked in front of the school hall, she let her eyes trail over the old walls of the hall, on the numerous cars in the compound and of course, on some of the guests that had arrived exactly the same time that she did.

Deciding that she probably wouldn’t recognize any of them, she stared into her reflection in the rearview mirror and quickly adjusted her makeup. By the time she stepped out of the car, more cars had driven into the compound and some guests were already walking up the walkway into the hall. She quickly strode alongside them, donning a civil smile. Some of the women waved at her and she quickly waved back, trying fervently to remember their names before they interacted inside the hall.

Luckily, no one really approached her to talk to her before she stepped into the hall. As soon as she walked through the large doors, Marie couldn’t be gladder that she had chosen one of her prettiest short dresses which fitted against her slim waist, thick thighs and average bust. Her long smooth legs easily stood out from under the dress while her feet were beautifully clasped inside her color-matching shoes.

“Marie?”

Oh God. Not him. Not him. Not now!

Marie couldn’t breathe. She hadn’t even taken six steps into the hall before everything she had hoped for happened. Her body froze as his strong voice came up behind her. She could hear the echo of his footsteps too as he slowly inched closer behind her. For a second, she hoped that he wasn’t real and his sudden appearance had been a figment of her repressed imagination.

“Marie! It is really you!”

She closed her eyes as it became more obvious that it was really him. Heaving a sigh, she finally turned to look at him while her teeth nervously dug into her lips. “Hello, Thomas.” She managed to whisper. “It has been how long – over ten years?”

That was until she received an invitation to attend her high school reunion This would stir up old memories from the past that she left behind. Would she rekindle a love with her old high school sweetheart Thomas? Only time will Reveal.

---------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------

Her husband, Terrance, came home that night and she had slid into bed with him, still thinking of Thomas.

She tried to hide it – how much she was distracted. She listened to Terrance talk – as he did every night – about his job as an attorney and how it was always stressful but lucrative to represent an artiste or a congressman. Apparently, he had been to court twice in one day and each meeting with the judge had taken almost every ounce of breath he could muster. At the end, he had won but he just had to complain about everything he had gone through to make that happen.

There was a time that she wanted to love how he spoke to her about his job every night. She had somehow learnt to crave the way his fingers traced the edges of her skin while he spoke. She got used to the smell of his cologne too and sometimes thrilled herself by wearing his shirt. But all these happened a long time ago – a very long time ago.

Now, while he finally stopped talking and began to tickle her thighs with his fingers, she only closed her eyes and wanted him done with her as soon as possible. He caressed her left thigh but she felt no arousal for him. She could only picture Thomas’ smile in her head. She could remember his strong arms and the way his tongue passionately tasted and suckled her nipples.

Terrance had slid down the bed to pull up her nightgown and rid her off her panty. He kissed the soft flesh between her thighs and dug his tongue into her hole. She appreciated his effort. She widened her thighs to give him more room and silently thanked him for reawakening her memories of Thomas. She imagined her husband to be her high school lover. She imagined him to be the young man that had torn her thighs apart with lust and had made her heart warm with love.

She wanted that endless orgasm that Thomas had given her as her high school sweetheart. So, she held Terrance’s head and pulled him up with a moan. She welcomed him into her warm embrace too, staring into his eyes and seeing the man in her thoughts.

“Oh My!” She whispered as soon as Terrance found her pleasure hole and rammed his cock deep into it.

He wasn’t even listening to her. He was fucking her hard now, lost in between his own pleasure. She urged him on, wanting the memory of Thomas to never cease. She could remember the three times he had held her pinned to the wall of his room and rammed into her from behind. She had felt loved. She had felt as if he meant the entire world to her.

Countless orgasm had been what he gave to her.

And she was having one now, thinking about him! She dug her fingers into her husband’s shoulders now as her climax came. Her body shook violently. Terrance was muttering inaudible words too while all she could mutter was the word, Thomas.

She was going nuts over a man that probably didn’t know that she existed anymore and she knew it.

----------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------

Marie Stafford extremely craved for a drink. She hadn’t had a taste of alcohol in five years but her hard-earned sobriety was about to go down the drain if she didn’t stop thinking about Thomas Smithfield.

Thomas.

He was her high school sweetheart. They had known each other for two years and Marie remembered how happy and adventurous she had been the entire time. He was a cheerful one, and also had a body, silky smooth hair and a smile that many of the high school girls melted over. She had been lucky to be the one to date him, despite that she had been awfully simple and uncharismatic as a teenager. He loved her. Thomas did.

She could still remember the way his deep brown stared into hers with promises and the tight clutch of their fingers when they attended prom nights. He had kissed her under the mistletoe the eve of New Year and had told her she meant the entire world to him. He also told her he would do anything just to make sure they lived their adult lives together. His serious tone had convinced her that she loved him too. She had held his hand and silently followed him home. On his bed, tinder lights from candles simmering around the room, she had happily let him deflower her. He had slowly undressed her, his fingers gently tracing the edges of her skin until finally; he cupped her peach-shaped breasts in his palms and smashed his lips against hers.

She had been breathless. She could still remember how she had cuddled close to him, wanting more than his touch craving far more than a kiss. When his hands had left her breasts to trace lines around her abdomen and then through the edges of her clit, her entire body had gone amok. Her heart raced fast, her muscles clench in anxiety while her lips parted to moan his name. “Thomas. Oh Thomas”

Marie could still remember the most graceful moment of that night. It was when he had inched back to pull down his shorts and had positioned himself between her thighs. Instead of the typical pain she had read about in novels, what she had felt was purely insane pleasure. He had filled her entire hole with his boyish cock. He penetrated gently and had begun a movement that rendered her abruptly breathless and elated.

When they both climaxed, she had buried her fingernails into his shoulders, clinging to him and hoping to never let him go. It had been a magical night. He had been the first man to ever make love to her and God, didn’t he do the job perfectly! He had muttered soothing words into her ears as they both drifted off to sleep. He had been an angel. Thomas had promised to never leave her and he never did. Surprisingly, she had been the one to destroy the entire relationship. A year later, she wanted to see the world. She wanted to leave the confines of their little town and live a life filled with more fun, achievements and adventure. So, she had left him. She had hopped into a bus, landed in an entirely different city a day later, attended college, started a business, married a man she didn’t love and had never for once looked back.

She thought she would constantly never look back until the invitation came four hours ago. Her high school was having a reunion and Thomas Smithfield would certainly be there.

Enchanted Book Promotions: Work of Art: An Intention of Flowers by Ken La Salle

About the Book Title: Work of Art: An Intention of Flowers Author: Ken La Salle Genre: YA / Contemporary Fiction
Oily pavement. Thick tempera paint. A parking lot filled with history, fear, and regret. A young man named Joseph Arillo sits in the parking lot and paints the pavement with flowers. And Andy Hollis steps in it. As the new art teacher at Santa Ana High School, he’s too curious about Joseph’s Flowers and unravels both of their lives in his pursuit for answers. He learns that it’s all part of a rite of passage, an absurd test started by Joseph Arillo’s father, the suspiciously world-renowned artist named only Tom. Which also connects to the drama teacher at Santa Ana High, Katie Bustos. Whose daughter, Desiree, may or may not be dating Joseph. Who is putting himself in danger from a local gang, the lot’s mysterious history, and the police. Andy puts himself in danger of losing his job, his home, and his freedom. If he can’t solve the riddle of Joseph’s Flowers, both of their lives will go up in smoke – despite any help from Winny, the old, Slovakian bureaucrat at school, or his students, or Tom himself. But is Tom trying to help? And is Joseph really up to his father’s test? And is Andy really fit to be a teacher? He doesn’t understand kids, can’t get to school on time, and… doesn’t appear to care about art or families or anything. But Joseph’s Flowers will challenge everything Andy believes: about himself, about the world, and most importantly of all about art. Before Andy and Joseph are finished, they will witness the power art has to provide inspiration, to waken our hearts, and to shatter everything you ever believed about humanity. An Intention of Flowers is the first book in a 5-book series, modestly titled Work of Art, about growing into the person you always wanted to be, making the most of what you have to give and not just what you have, and the power in each of us when we chose to be ourselves.

Book Excerpts Excerpt 1

“It’s a ritual. You understand? The intent is to force all of the childhood memories out of the boy and leave the man remaining. But that’s not exactly what happens. Sometimes, it causes brain damage and the boys lose their memory, their identity, even their ability to speak. The fact that they survive at all means they have cheated death and now they are ready to be men.” “Okay,” I said, drinking my beer. “What’s your point? What’s that have to do with – ” “That’s only one example, Mister Hollis. Just one! In the Amazon rainforest – back when, you know, it still existed – the Satere-Mawes had an equally brutal ritual. They would capture bullet ants. Do you know what bullet ants are?” Of course, I didn’t. So, he took another big pull from his beer and told me. “They’re called bullet ants because being stung by one is so severe that it hurts like being shot by a bullet. They live in trees and warn passers-by of their hive by falling down on you. They’re a full inch long. And after they fall on you, they shriek – yes, they shriek – and then they sting you, which is like being shot by a bullet. And that’s just from one, single ant.” Tom stepped back into his furniture storage room and returned with a stool. He sat on it and said, “Now comes the best part.” “There’s a better part?” I asked. “The Satere-Mawe tribe gather these ants by the hundreds and make gloves out of huge leaves, putting these ants inside the gloves. Then, they have their young men place their hands inside these gloves. The ants are woven into the gloves in such a way that when you put your hand inside of them, the ants begin stinging. Every sting is like being shot and they leave their hands in there for two minutes – five minutes – ten minutes! Ten minutes of agonizing pain. Soon, their bodies are convulsing from the toxins. Their arms grow stiff, useless, twisted appendages wrecked with agony. This agony lasts for days, days filled with uncontrollable spasms, useless limbs.

Author Bio Talia Hibbert is a writer and educator from England, U.K., by way of both the West Indies and West Africa. She wrote her first romance aged 12, and was promptly scolded by her teacher because her story of love in the jungle wasn't 'proper'. Since then, Talia's romances have improved in quality and hugely increased in heat. She now writes erotic, interracial romances about dirty Brits. They still aren't proper, but they are a lot of fun. In her free time, she eats too much ice cream and watches K Drama on Netflix. She also spends a serious amount of time on social media, so make sure you stay connected. Keep up with the world of Dirty British Romance on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram! And, as Talia would say... that's all, folks. Love and biscuits.
