So for Scintillating Sunday I’ve picked a scene from Indulge Me, my sensual tale of erotic D/s. Gideon and Saffron are visiting France on a wine tasting mission, but that isn’t all they’re up to for the trip.
Gideon sucked in his breath and blew out slowly. Buoyed by the glow in his eyes, she obliged him further by shrugging her shoulders, enabling the fabric to slide down her arms.
The robe came to rest at her feet. She stood naked, her heartbeats thundering in her ears and her gazed fixated on Gideon’s delighted face.
“What now?” Saffron croaked, barely able to make her voice audible. She crept forward, reaching out to his chest. As she fingered a shirt button, he didn’t flinch. By his sides, his hands clenched and unclenched, no doubt itching to be all over her. She wanted a moment to pander to her wishes, her temptations.
She unbuttoned his shirt, methodically, slowly, until she could see what lay beneath—his hairless chest. She spread her fingers, flattening her palms over his pectorals. They weren’t prominent but firm, lean muscles, which he exercised in some way, but not rigorously. She savoured them by leaning forward and licking his salty, dainty nipples.
Gideon groaned as she trailed kisses over his breastbone, along his collarbone, while she dragged his shirt over his shoulders allowing her hands access to his back.
So smooth, like polished wood, but softer and warmer. She smelt his musk. She picked out the ingredients—fresh perspiration, aloe vera—he’d bathed before her arrival, a hint of something spicy, slight ginger essence.
She inhaled through her nostrils and moaned, her nose pressed into his neck. He shook his arms free of the shirt sleeves and she wrapped her arms tight about his body, hugging him. “Lovely,” she murmured.
He drew her head away from him, cupping her cheeks with his palms. “Come, lie on the bed, on your belly.”
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.
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.
Employment in the same field spurs these two characters to meet, but smoking hot chemistry keeps them together. I loved watching Saffron and Gideon’s story unfold. A very sexy, elegant read. So very well written, the story was intriguing, the characters engaging, and the love making smoking hot!
A delicious book and made more so if you enjoy wine tasting events. This book is written so well, I found myself tasting the wines as they spat. It is a very good love story and we are held in suspense untill the end as to the real Gideon. The book is full to the brim with erotic lovemaking. There is revenge from Saffron’s ex. I like the end, very good book Ms Peaches.
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.
