When he had made the perfect knot in the tie, Jake stared at his reflection. So long ago but it seemed like only yesterday. A small smile tugged the corners of his lips. He ran a hand through his wavy, cinnamon brown hair. Today was going to be a big celebration; the biggest in his life, thus far. He needed to look perfect. No, better than perfect – flawless.
This title was supposed to be a quickie…but a few pages into drafting and I knew that this story wanted to blossom into sooo much more….57,481 words more!…So, who is Janay anyway?….I suppose in a way..kinda’ sorta’ but not really..she’s me. Or, should I say, the me I wanted to be when I was scribbling this into e-ink. Guys from the Midwest are sexy! Love those accents!
Janay is a woman who is about to find out that sometimes taking a chance and side-stepping outside of the “norm” may be just what’s needed to help her to really start to LIVE life and not merely observe it from the perspective of others…
Hope you enjoy Janay and Jackson’s (somewhat erotic) love story…I did *winks*
There they stood, hand in hand, on the very edge of an unknown and unnamed universe mere moments after its birth. Swirls of multicolored dust and lights scattered and danced across a blank canvas. In what would be known as seconds, clouds of galaxies, bubbling over with new life smaller than a fleck, burst forth. In every direction, tiny diamond pinpoints raced ahead, signaling that this new creation was very pleased with how its makers had designed it.
The male, fresh-faced with an ageless appearance, looked over and smiled at the female. He watched her eyes shine and marvel at what they had just done. This same scene had replayed countless times, yet the joyous glow hovering upon her lovely cheeks always brought a renewed sensation of warmth fluttering within his chest. When they worked their magic together, every time was better than the first.
With the tip of his finger, he moved a lock of her hair and gently tucked it behind her ear.
“What shall we do now?”
It always pleased him to follow her lead. He lived to make her happy. His very existence hinged upon filling her heart with glee.
She turned to him, her gaze swimming with unspoken adoration.
“I think we should make…love.”
The corners of his mouth quirked into an impish grin.
“As you wish.”
Turning to face the new dawn and the endless horizons stretching out before them, together they strolled forth. Their flawless forms became smaller and smaller until they stood within the boundaries of the world they had just sculpted. As one, as always, they were ready and restless to explore the shores of their newest homeland.
How do you think it all began?
Ethan’s obsession with Shay drives him too close to the edge of reason. She disappeared from his life long ago, and being separated from her for a second time is not an option…it will never be an option, not as long as the blood in his body continues to feed the desires of his heart…
She made her choice, but Shay begins to experience an emotion she has never known before…regret. Her mind and thoughts now mingle with Ethan’s, and she begins to sense the true depths of his affections for her. Before she can decide if she is willing to let down her guard and to take a chance on accepting his love, danger and terror circle back to hunt her down one more time…
Will taking help from a very reluctant ally prove to be the final trap in this twisted game of cat and mouse?
*This continuing dark romance teaser is not for the faint-hearted, and is not filled with steamy, sugar-plum kisses…yet…they’re still baking*

I don’t smoke, but I suppose that’s the best way to describe this feeling, this undeniable urge I have..Knowing I should keep my hands off something, yet eagerly picking it up again exactly where it was left off. An intense craving to taste a piece of forbidden fruit..always posing so perfectly, and always within arm’s reach whenever the hunger strikes. I never even realized how much I was attracted to pale skin men until very recently. Then again, I suppose I always knew; however, for years, I tried my absolute best to ignore my roaming eyes and fluttering heart…despite the plain fact that the objects they seemed most drawn to were silky hair and light eyes..tan skin and slim noses…Never mind the fantasies I imagined involving wandering peach fingers; all I wanted to do was to forget the teasing thoughts ever existed..Oh, how easy it is to become desperate for another taste, then another..followed by ravenous bites into exhausting ecstasy, once that first sensuous kiss is ignited..How disappointing that the fantasies don’t bloom into wonderful ever-after’s similar to the way it is in scripted love stories..Perhaps one day soon I’ll be free, able to break this bad habit of lusting after someone who doesn’t deserve all the sweet goodies I have to share..Perhaps, but not quite soon enough..4/17/12..iamlenise
