SEDUCE ME by J. Kenner
ExcerptI'm tapping the end of my pencil against the overfull sheet--because despite owning my own web and mobile app development company, I print my schedule every morning--when Damien approaches. I know that he is there even though he has yet to say a word. Perhaps I heard his bare feet on the wooden floor. Perhaps the air shifted as he passed. Or perhaps he is simply Damien Stark, and I could no more fail to notice his presence than I could miss a tidal wave. But more likely, I think it is because he has so thoroughly claimed me that there is never a time when I am not blissfully and totally aware of him. I am in the library on the mezzanine of the exceptional Malibu house that was still under construction when I first started dating Damien. Now it is our home, and each place within these walls is precious to me. I'm at the desk near the section where Damien has shelved his sci-fi/fantasy collection, with tattered paperbacks tucked in with pristine, signed first editions. A few feet away, the newest addition to our household is curled up into a tiny ball of orange fluff in one of the comfy leather chairs. This is Damien's favorite place to work, and that's part of why I come here almost every morning--I like to feel close to him. Right now, I feel very close indeed. "You're amazing, you know." I speak without turning around, then smile when I hear his soft chuckle behind me. "Because I can sneak up on you?" This time I do hear his footsteps as he moves even closer. "I knew you were there. By definition, that isn't sneaking. Or, at least, it's not successful sneaking." "You make a good point, Mrs. Stark." His hands press gently on my shoulders, and I close my eyes, just soaking up the feel of him. It's more potent than coffee, and if I could bottle this feeling, I'd be richer than my husband. I haven't yet turned to look at him, but I don't need to. I've long ago memorized every delicious inch of him. His raven-black hair, so familiar to my fingers. His perfectly sculpted face, softened by the slightest shadow of beard stubble. His lean, well-muscled athlete's body that looks equally exceptional in jeans or a tux. And, of course, his dual-colored eyes that can look right to my core and see all my secrets. It is not yet seven on a Friday morning and though I'm still in my typical morning uniform of a T-shirt and baggy shorts, I know that he is already dressed. I inhale, confirming that assumption. I smell the soap from his shower. The hint of musk from the cologne I bought him in Paris on our honeymoon just a few months ago. "So tell me, why am I amazing?" "To answer that, I'd need Power Point, a projector, and at least two days." I tilt my head back so that I can grin at him, and my heart skitters when I see his face, even more perfect then the picture I keep tucked away in my mind. "But in this particular instance, I was referring to your time management skills." Damien accomplishes more in a day than most people do in a year. Frankly, I think it's highly likely that superpowers are involved. "Busy day?" "By human standards. For you, it's probably a cakewalk. For me, I'm going to have to do some juggling." I push the chair away from the desk and stand, then lean back so that I'm half-sitting on it, my rear pressed against the edge. Damien's attention is entirely on my face, and there is such a look of hunger in his eyes that I have to smile. "Careful, or you'll be late for work." "I find that's one of the perks of running my own company. There's no one to slap my hand when I break the rules." I hear the thread of playfulness in his voice and match it. "Do you break the rules often, Mr. Stark?" He lifts his hand, then brushes my hair away from my neck so that his fingertips can stroke my tender skin, then trace down along my collarbone. "As often as possible," he says.
Steena Holmes extended summary of THE MEMORY JOURNAL
Linda Lael Miller on her story, INTERLUDEThis never-before-published novella is a modern-day Western, featuring Cassidy McCullough, who has come home to the family ranch outside Busted Spur, Arizona to prepare for her upcoming wedding to–totally the wrong man. Oh, Michael is nice enough. He’s smart, successful, and good-looking. Trouble is, he’s not G.W. Benton, the sexy and slightly older rancher who lives down the road from the McCullough place. G.W. has a young son and a history of heartbreak, and, while Cassidy has known him all her life, and had a major crush on him when she was younger, well, she’s over all that. Cassidy has made herself a life in Seattle, where Michael is awaiting her return, none too patiently, but, heck, Busted Spur is home. So there’s the 411 on “Interlude”. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
