Adult Tales of an Erotic Nature. Twelve short stories-most contemporary, some fantasy, some reality.The Assistant--The sounds were louder now, the whimper turning into a grunt of pleasure. Remi stopped just outside the door, the papers in her arms shaking. She blinked. This must be a mistake. She must have misheard. As she took another step, the sound came again and she stopped again, her breath coming in short gasps. She closed her mouth and swallowed. She should go. It was late—the office was empty except for her, her boss, and whoever else was behind that door.Scarred--The tale of Robert and the fairy queen started as an exploration of how men feel about aging and what happens when their physicality is challenged and the words wandered down a fantasy lane. Everyone should have an encounter with the fae, especially when they are in need of magic in their lives.Terah Firma--A large California king encased in carved walnut was the centerpiece of the room. The shower occupied the east side of the circle of windows, eight feet long with multiple shower heads and slate floor. Terah remembered Nick finishing the floor, hooking up the plumbing shortly after her first visit to their bedroom.On the opposite side of the room, her boyfriend Ryan was indeed naked and lying prone on the massage table. The table was a professional one, quite ordinary looking with the exception of leather cuffs attached to the underside, hanging loosely in mock surrender.An Experiment--Almost of their own volition, Alexs hands raise, as if to push Jared away. But Jared hasnt come any closer. Hes still leaning against the counter. Alexs hands come to rest against his chest, feeling the hard muscle stretching under them. They slide lightly up, resting on the tops of Jareds shoulders. No, his hands are still. Its Jared whos moving under them. Sliding to his knees, hands on Alexs hips, backing him up against the fridge as he kneels in front of him, his long fingers slipping under the edge of Alexs t-shirt, just above the worn elastic of his sweats.
