About the author:
Sable Rose is a writer of M/F erotic contemporary and paranormal romances starring dreamy, swoon-worthy heroes and sexy independent women, and filled with plenty of panty-drenching moments.
She's the author of the popular four-book Unhinged Romance series and the recent three-book (so far) Adoring Angels Chronicles series.
Apart from writing, she loves reading great books and listening to great songs.
She dreams of one day finding time to learn both pole-dancing and belly-dancing.
That might never happen.
Sable lives in Lagos, Nigeria with her family.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Dominic swung the door shut behind her, his heart thumping in a staccato rhythm. His nostrils twitched at the scent of lavender that trailed her. What had he gotten himself into? He should have made up an excuse. He should have come up with something! How had he allowed this to happen?
His eyes tumbled toward her. She was tiny. Probably, five-foot-three or four. From his lofty six-foot-seven height, he could see down to the part in the middle of her straight black hair, to the clean yellow-brown scalp.
He could also see the bends of two creamy-yellow breasts through the V-neck of her hot-pink dress. At the top of the V was a gold zipper crowning a stretch of gold zip that ended at the bottom of the dress, just an inch above her knees.
If he tugged on that zip, he could peel her dress open, like a banana…
“Hello.” She smiled up into his eyes.
“Hi.” His voice sounded odd to his ears. Her features were fine and small. Cute eyes, snub nose, narrow lips. Was it just this stranger’s size that reminded him of her? The woman he was in love with. The woman who was, at present, dating someone else. The woman who could never be his.
She stepped forward, arms wide, as if she intended to hug him.
Dominic stuck out a hand. She froze, a frown rumpling her brow.
Then, she put her smile back on and shook his hand. “Hello, I’m Chika.”
“It’s nice to meet you, Dominic.” Her gaze coursed from his face to his body. A pink tongue flitted out and licked her glossy hot-pink bottom lip.
Not knowing what to do with his hands, he thrust them into the pockets of his trousers. He couldn't deny it. She was exceptionally pretty. A too tempting package. Already, he could feel his penis wake up and hump his trousers.
Dominic, don’t give in.
They stared at each other awkwardly.
Dominic willed his dick to shrink. He had made a commitment to himself. If he couldn't have her, the woman he loved, he would remain celibate.
His stubborn penis paid no attention. You idiot!
“I suppose we better…” Chika murmured, one hand dragging her zipper down.
His eyes opened in shock and before his mouth could protest, he sighted black lace covering the nipples of her round breasts.
“Stop!” Dominic lifted a hand and took a step back. His cock spasmed.
Chika’s hand halted. She stared up at him, eyes wide and confused. “Have I done something wrong?”
“No.” He shook his head, wishing his erection could vanish. He shouldn’t have agreed to have a girl in his room. “It’s not you… Ur, do you want to…”
Dominic careered to the bed and crashed onto it. His engorged organ tented his grey trousers. Damn. Damn. Damn.
Waving at the damask-covered chair by the bed, he muttered, “…do you want to sit down?” Sweat prickled his collarbone.
She inched forward, uncertain. “Is everything alright?”
“Yes, everything’s fine.”
Chika landed beside him on the bed.
Dominic’s throat dried up. Her left thigh rubbed against his right. This close, he could watch every swell and fall of her breasts.
He vaulted off the bed and fled into the armchair.
“Don’t you want me?”
He sighed. “I just think we should get to know a bit about each other.”
“And it’s not because you don’t find me attractive.”
Dominic pinched the strained fabric of his trousers above his throbbing organ. “Does this look like I don’t find you attractive?”
Chika laughed. “No, it doesn't. Dominic, I think you're very handsome.”
“Thank you.” His balls were stiffening. This was torture!
“And I want to make love to you… do you want that?”
At this moment, more than anything. “You’re very pretty, Chika, but, I prefer to just talk.”
Her lips trembled, displaying her disappointment. She focused her gaze on his face. “Would you have preferred another girl? Is that the problem?”
“No, I assure you. You’re… Ur… very nice.”
“But you don’t want to have me.”
“I want to!” He blinked. Had he just said that? “What I mean is… maybe some other time.”
“Then… do you want me to leave?” Her mouth puckered as she yanked her zipper back up. “But, my time with you has been paid for.”
“No, don’t leave. Just tell me about yourself.”
“Okay…” her soft voice hummed with dissatisfaction. “My name is Chika and I’m an escort. What else do you want to know?”
“Your family. Tell me about them.”
“I’m the last born. I have three elder brothers. My dad and mom are separated and live in different cities.”
“Who in your family are you closest to?”
She ogled the lump in his trousers. “I could help with that. At least, let me suck you off.”
Dominic’s heart jack-hammered. Was her giving him a blowjob any different from the many, many handjobs he’d given himself?
But, once he’d opened the door… would he have the strength to stop at just oral sex?
He threw her a patient smile. “Chika, answer my question.”
She wrinkled her snub nose. “I only want to make you happy.”
“I’m happy, Chika. Talking to you makes me happy.”
She breathed out a doubtful sigh and then continued, “We’re not a very close family.”
“The one person I was closest to in the world was my best friend, Kate.”
Dominic frowned. “You said was…”
Chika’s shoulders drooped. “She’s missing, presumed dead.”
“How long has she been missing?”
“Nine months. I've complained to the police, to our manager, but no one seems to be doing anything to help.”
“Was she an escort too?”
Chika nodded solemnly. Her eyes had left Dominic and were now staring unseeingly at the window directly opposite. She replied, “Yes. As a matter of fact, she was the one who introduced me to the business. I was struggling, earning peanuts as a customer care personnel in a telecoms servicing company. Once I graduated from university, I was basically alone. My parents and brothers left me to fend for myself. ”
Still gazing forward, she chuckled. “I was always borrowing money from Kate. She was… She is such a darling.”
Dominic watched her young face momentarily age. “What happened to her?”
“One evening, she went on a call to Bright Morning Hotel and never returned.”
Bright Morning Hotel. He’d heard that name only a few hours ago.
Chika said, “For two months after her disappearance, I tried unsuccessfully to get our manager to send me to the hotel. Then, one day, I heard the hotel had closed down and that one of its previous owners was constructing a new hotel. This hotel. And, luckily, this night, I got the chance to come here.”
Dominic slanted a quick glance downward. Thankfully her sad story had deflated his prodigious erection. Whew.
He asked, “So, what did you plan to do once you got here?”
She glanced at him and licked her lip. “Make love to you…”
He grinned. “Aside from that.”
“Ask around. Find out if someone knows something. Some of the staff from Bright Morning are here.”
An idea dropped into his head. Dominic said, “Why don’t we, you and I, pay the owner, Isaac, a visit and ask him if he knows anything about what happened to your friend? I guess he’s on the same floor with me and my brothers. All I need to do is to call down to reception for his room number.”
Chika’s eyes watered. “Are you serious, Dominic?”
“Yes, I am. I want to help you find out what happened.”
“You’re sweet. I want to kiss you.”
He chuckled. “No kissing necessary. It’s my pleasure to help.”
And it would help take my mind off sex.
