HAPPY NEW YEAR!
For my last WWW post of 2018, I’m going to an older novella from my Time Enough to Love series, Beloveds. Because it’s going away on New Year’s Day. After Jan 1, 2019 it will only be available in the Time Enough to Love Complete Set. So I thought perhaps you’d like a snippet from it.
It’s an erotic novella (although this snippet is PG-13) about the three main characters of Time Enough to Love: Geoffrey, his best friend Thomas, and Alyse–the woman they both love.
In this snippet, Alyse is ill and is visited by someone very dear to her.
(Creative punctuation utilized to conform to WWW rules and snippet may therefore be slightly different from published version.)
Warmth flowed through her, soothing her, making her body tingle with that single touch of his lips.
“Is it really you?” Strength welled within her, and she struggled to sit up.
“As ever I was,” he said and smiled, his gaze sweeping her body and his eyes darkening with the desire she remembered well.
“Oh, Thomas,” she cried and threw her arms around him, sighing when they embraced the hard-muscled chest she had lain so oft upon. “I thought you dead, my love–did I but dream?”
“Shhh, my sweet, I am here now.” He stroked her head then pulled it back to peer into her face, saying “I will always be with you, love.” He sank his mouth onto hers, and she melted at the touch of his insistent lips.
Passion never dies.
Lady Alyse Braeton frets over her renewed passion for Sir Geoffrey Longford, her first love. They have pledged their hearts to one another, despite the fact that both are recently widowed. Alyse worries that she has not properly mourned Thomas and cannot think herself as true wife to Geoffrey until she puts her feelings for her first husband to rest.
And then Thomas unaccountably appears in her bedroom, leaving her stunned and confused. When he begins to make love to her, however, she joyfully surrenders herself to his familiar caresses and expert ministrations…until Geoffrey arrives.
Faced with the dilemma of wanting two lovers, Alyse simply cannot choose—until Thomas suggests she doesn’t have to. Instead, he and Geoffrey will share her. The scandalous proposition awakens new hungers within her. Can she allow herself to abandon all she’s been taught a proper woman should resist, and find pleasure with both her beloveds?
Beloveds is available on Amazon for two more days only!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
