Saffron and Gideon are on a wine tasting tour of South Africa and he’s treating her to a safari…
Saffron froze. “What’s that?”
Gideon smirked. “Lion?”
She tried to sit up, but he dragged her back down. Were they safe? Her heart pounded not only from the excitement of their impending sexual exploits, but the realisation they were in the middle of wild Africa. Wine farms were familiar places with long lines of vines and fermentation plants, not tents on game reserves.
Gideon stuffed his hand between her legs and forced them apart, driving his fingers into her wet place as she gasped. “Trust me, you’re safe. This is a high-class safari camp, one of the best in the country, they don’t feed the guests to the lions. On the other hand, I intend to dine on my favourite little pussy.”
He rubbed his thumb around her clitoris and she writhed about, squinting at the canvas ceiling. “Oh, no, no,” she moaned. “Not yet.” Four days of Gideon’s company without fucking had caught up with her libido. She would come in an instant if he hadn’t stopped.
“No,” he whispered into her ear. “Not yet. I think you’re in danger of escaping.”
“Escaping?” She crushed her legs together, trapping his hand between her thighs and gave him a wry smile. “Who’s escaping?”
She sees him once.
He’s standing across the wine cellar watching her when their eyes meet. Miles away from home in California’s Napa Valley, she’s caught in his gaze. Though, neither one speaks, for a moment the rest of the world falls away, and she sends him a smile.
She sees him again.
Back home in England. Is it the same man? In the middle of a crowded wine fair, she spots him. A smile of recognition, but no words exchanged. She shakes it off, the same line of business, the same events, it’s a small world.
The third is no coincidence.
She’s running a private tasting and in walks her mystery man, dressed in a fine suit. What does she really know about him other than they share a love of wine? She’s intrigued, even more so when she discovers he has sought her out. When he invites her to a private session in a wine cellar, deep underneath a castle, she begins to uncover his secrets.
Saffron surrenders her body and embarks on an indulgent journey with the attractive sommelier, Gideon. As a wine taster, Saffron continually uses her senses to carve out a successful career, driving her to the peak of her profession. However, when Gideon leads her on an erotic adventure fueled by passion and self-discovery, she’s startled to learn that she’s been living her life ignorant of sensory pleasures that require other talents, ones she’d never explored with her previous, disastrous lover. That man, who envies her success, is waiting to strike back and destroy everything she has achieved.
Excerpt – A Taster
What a provocative, sexy read! Jaye writes the love story between Saffron and Gideon against the backdrop and intrigue of the high-class, elite world of wine-tasting. Mix in a little BDSM, a double-crossing ex, and true love, and you have a story that begs you to read until the last drop. I read it with a glass of pinot noir and found them both delicious.
In this Jaye Peaches story she takes her characters Gideon and Saffron to a wine growing region in France and back to the hallowed halls of wine collections & collectors back in Britain. Their new relationship is challenged when Saffron’s professional integrity is called into question by a jealous rival. Gideon introduces Saffron to D/s dynamic and the Author does a great job in writing this element of the relationship. I have had Jaye Peaches on my must buy list since her Trust Me series and she has again crafted a well written interesting BDSM story with grit and character.
