The theme for My Sexy Saturday is vampires…. I haven’t written about vampires, but since vampires drink blood, I thought of my wine taster, Saffron who loves red wine and the man who serves it to her blindfolded. Sometimes people aren’t quite what they seem. Here’s an excerpt from Indulge Me, which has just been nominated for on the Spanking Romance Reviews award for best BDSM Romance. I’m pleased to be able to share a short excerpt. Saffron is listening in on the conversation between her boyfriend, Gideon, and his mysterious friend, Duncan, who lives in a castle and has a massive wine cellar.
“She’s not ready.” Gideon was speaking, his nearly inaudible voice echoed around the stone cellar. The acoustics propelled the soft tone towards where she stood hidden out of view.
Saffron stepped away from the ajar door, listening to the conversation through the small opening.
Duncan’s voice was slightly clearer. “You can’t keep her in the dark much longer.”
Gideon sighed. “I know.”
“Then, perhaps, my friend, it is you who are not ready.” Duncan spoke with a perceivable sadness. “Will she understand or walk out the door?”
Saffron leaned forward, pinning her ears back, but she couldn’t hear Gideon’s reply.
“She’s potential,” said Duncan. “You saw that, you told me weeks before you left for South Africa. Have you changed your mind?”
As a successful wine taster, Saffron uses her senses everyday in the job she loves. When she meets Gideon she starts to question her lacklustre love life, the string of bad relationships and especially the breakup with her former co-worker.
Gideon is an attractive sommelier, and as she finds out, he compliments her in every way professionally and personally. When Saffron surrenders her body to him, she embarks on an indulgent journey of passion and self-discovery. Gideon encourages Saffron to explore her secret fantasies and desires, those sensual pleasures that come with his dominant love-making. However, she’s dismayed when she discovers his dishonesty and to make matters worse, somebody from her past is waiting to strike back and destroy everything she has achieved.
Just when Saffron finds happiness and satisfaction in all aspects of her life, a scandal threatens to ruin everything. Will her career endure the slander of a spurned lover? Can she find a way to understand Gideon’s secret desires and learn to trust him again?
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.
Gideon and Saffron have great chemistry in this story – again think Bridget Jones and Daniel Cleaver with all the same humor just a bit kinkier and lots of wine. Giddeon is both a caring, white knight alpha male mixed with a little dominance and Saffron is a strong, independent women who has had some bad luck with love. Together they complement each other and create some hot, hot, scenes.
