Julia leaned against the kitchen counter and called her husband. The phone rang only twice before he answered.
She flushed. It never ceased to amaze her how, with a word or two, he could increase her heart rate and cause her skin to heat.
“Hello, handsome. Where are you?”
“Just picking up a few things. Where are you?”
Gabriel paused and Julia could hear the sound of a car door slam.
“You’re home early. I wasn’t expecting you home until six.”
“Professor Marinelli ended her seminar early. I am so tired. I’m just going to head upstairs and take a shower and then I think I’m going to take a nap.”
Julia heard the sound of the Range Rover roar to life as Gabriel started it.
“You do that. I’ll be home soon. See you then.”
“I love you.”
“I love you too.”
Julia heard what sounded like a chuckle before Gabriel disconnected. She wondered what he found so funny.
She poked around in the kitchen for a few minutes, noticing that Rebecca hadn’t prepared anything for dinner. She wondered why.
Perplexed, she climbed the stairs to the second floor. She didn’t bother to hang up her clothes, but simply dropped them in the bedroom before entering the shower.
A hot shower would revitalize her after an exhausting day, she was sure.
She’d almost finished her shower when she heard the shower door open.
“Why, hello there.”
Gabriel stood in front of her, naked and smiling. He leaned forward to kiss her.
“Did you need a shower too?” she asked, trying not to ogle him and failing miserably.
“No. I just wanted to be where you are.”
She kissed him again. “Thanks.”
She ran an appreciative hand down the center of his chest to the deep v that bracketed his hips. Then she switched off the water, squeezing the water out of her long, dark hair.
Gabriel swiftly retrieved a towel and handed it to her.
That’s when she noticed the way his eyes were alit in anticipation, his smile growing wider.
“What’s up?” she asked.
“I have a surprise.”
“Think of it as an early Valentine’s gift.”
“I’m listening.” She quickly ran the towel over her body, then wound it over her hair.
Gabriel picked up a glass jar and held it out to her.
“Chocolate body paint,” she read. She glanced up at him. “Now?”
“Now.” He wiggled a small paintbrush under her nose.
“Wow.” She breathed.
“I thought about trying it in the bedroom, but things could get messy.”
He crouched in front of her, his face level with her navel, and opened the jar. He dipped the paintbrush in the chocolate, spreading the confection liberally over the delicate strands of the brush, before winking up at her.
“Shall we begin?”
She nodded, her eyes half closed.
Slowly, he began to draw a heart around her navel.
The feel of the chocolate and the brush gliding across her warm skin caused her to shiver. And of course, despite the fact that it almost tickled, Gabriel would not be rushed.
“There.” He put the jar and brush aside and licked his lips.
“Now comes the fun part. Ready?”
She nodded then reached out a shaking hand to grasp a railing when Gabriel’s tongue made contact with her skin, swirling through the chocolate and dipping into her navel.
Gabriel reached up to steady her by placing one of his large hands across her backside.
“It tastes better than I expected.” He nibbled at her slightly. “But then again, that’s probably because I like how you taste.”
His tongue blazed a trail to her hipbone, where he began placing open-mouthed kisses.
“I think we need more. What do you think?”
“Yes, please.” Julia nodded furiously. “Definitely, more.”
Gabriel picked up the chocolate and the brush.
“Then you’d better hold on tight, darling, because I’m planning to be thorough.”
She leaned forward, cupping his chin.
“As am I, Professor.”

“I just wanted to be where you are.” Swoon SR. 🙂 That statement is so very loving, I LOVE IT!! (And spoken by a naked Gabriel may have helped a bit.) >;-) Loving the <3 heart around the navel. The thought that the picture I found may have acted as a muse to your writing is thrilling. 🙂 Well done SR as always and I look forward to MORE as always! Happy Valentine’s Day to you SIR. Thank You Thank You! Now get back to more research. *AHEM* 😉
Beautiful as always, SR. Chocolate has a whole new meaning to me now ;)I loved both this outtake and the one posted on The Book List Reviews. Thank you for sharing them with us!

I still think you should write a book on how to make love to a woman, SR.! You have an unlimited imagination when it comes to this topic. Your teases are like foreplay and they get us all worked up for what’s next. I’m anxiously waiting for #3 and thank you for this hot peek. <3

Amazing! Your writing style is wonderful and proves a book can sooo mouth wateringly sexy without being vulgar! Can’t wait for book 3.
Rocky Moreno says
I absolutely loved both books and truly enjoyed the attention to detail made in respects to Dante. I greatly anticipate the 3rd book, of which I literally just found out there would be a 3rd book. When I finished the 2nd book, I was hoping there would be a 3rd and now that I know there is, I’m so happy to know what more there is to know about Gabriel & Julia’s life is after marriage. It was really an area I wanted to delve into more at the end of the 2nd book. I’ve read both books several times and it’s also re-engaged me into reading Dante as well, for which I thank you. I’ll keep my eyes open for any news of a release date of the 3rd book.
I just found out about these books this week by accident while looking through fan pages 50 shades movie news. I was so taken with the beautiful David James Gandy page that’s set up as a fan page for Gabriel O. Emerson. Would rather pay good money to see these books made intoa film series ala “James Bond” with D. Gandy being the actor. Why can’t a film company buy rights to something well written like these lovely books!
Where in the world do you get this stuff??? Do you just have a very vivid imagination or some resource where you can get ideas?? Your scenes and ideas are very unique and inventive, leaving your readers just gasping for more.
But as good as your scenes and ideas are, your well-defined and distinctive characters are just another large part of what makes your writing so addictive, but its the writing that keeps me coming back. As a reader, I am left with the sense that every word you choose is deliberate and purposeful within the meticulously planned plot. Nothing is left to chance.
Add to that your intelligent and exceptional knowledge of some of literature’s best classics and The Bible that you have carefully woven through this story and its so easy to be blown away. The lemons are just extras.
I am patiently looking forward to book 3 but also interested in reading anything else you have published as SR or your alter-ego.
PAULA MARIE says
