A warm welcome to this week’s Melting Mondays guest, Marlene Sexton! Take it away, Marlene… 😀
Devious Submission is the first episode of a new serial erotic romance. I’ve become interested in writing serials, stories that are presented in episodes like TV shows. Each episode has a beginning and end but there is also a series long story line and possibly other story lines that span one or more episodes. I think it’s a great way to present stories on e-reading devices to readers that are on the go. No $15 cover price, no commitment to 700 pages of story that may or may not be satisfying and stories that can be read on an airplane flight or the bus to the office.
The Submission Series, as I call it, is an erotic thriller. The sex is explicit and hot with a lot of BDSM and the rest of the story is full of action and intrigue. The story follows a woman that involves herself with a billionaire for payment but it turns into so much more, no one is who they seem and every one had secrets. Basically, erotic romance meets daytime soap. Here’s a little taste:
I went inside as directed by the driver and took a seat in the parlor. The house was big and reminded me of an old lodge. Suddenly I was keenly aware of how short my dress really was and how deeply the neckline plunged. I was also aware of how excited I’d become. Mr. Remington was in his early fifties, but he was still a sexy man. His short hair with gray on the sides, angular face with a trimmed beard with a streak of gray and athletic body were right up my alley, but it was his power that turned me on.
A beautiful, conservatively dressed woman interrupted my thoughts as she entered the room. She had shoulder length blonde hair curled under and was thin and fit. “So, you’re Nathan’s latest? Not bad, if a little thin. I’m guessing those are real,” she said as she sat opposite me on a matching sofa. Her voice had a hard edge to it.
“Excuse me?” I asked startled by her abruptness.
“Your tits. They’re real aren’t they?” she asked again.
“Yes. Who are you?” I asked.
“Of course, I should have known. I’m Muriel, Nathan’s wife,” the woman told me.
“Oh, I…um…,” I stammered but Mr. Remington saved me.
“Dear, annoying my mistress again?” he said as he walked into the room.
“Just saying hello to the little slut. Nice meeting you, Ms…,” Muriel explained and then paused.
“Wilson. Kimmie Wilson,” I responded.
“Oh, how…quaint. Let me guess. Farm girl looking to find her fortune in the big city? Well, nice meeting you Ms. Wilson. I’m sure my husband will enjoy beating you or whatever it is he does with the whores he brings home. I’ll be upstairs, Nathan,” Muriel said as if just uttering the words disgusted her. I watched her go as she left the room. She was only thirty-seven and very pretty. I felt horrible for her. Why would Mr. Remington do this too her, I wondered.
“Should I have Carl bring you more vodka and valium, dearest?” Mr. Remington asked as she left.
“Fuck you, Nathan!” she responded bitterly from the stairs in the foyer.
“Don’t mind her. She’s a drama queen. Anymore we’re husband and wife in name only. I wish things were different but…,” Mr. Remington said to put me at ease and then left his thought hanging. I almost felt bad for Mr. Remington.
“I won’t let it bother me, Mr. Remington,” I answered.
“Call me, Nate. Please. Can I get you something to drink?” he asked. He seemed different than I had heard. I’d been told he was a severe man but he seemed charming and friendly, an act no doubt.
“Yes, please, Mr. Rem…I mean Nate,” I answered.
“What’s your poison?”
“I like white wine.”
“White wine it is. While out drinks are on the way, why don’t you slip out of that dress for me,” Nate said.
“Here? Now?” I asked surprised at his request. His wife was upstairs yet he wanted me to undress in the parlor? Modesty aside, I found the request to be rather exciting. Still, I was hesitant.
“Yes. Right here and right now, Kimmie. I don’t like having to ask twice,” he said and I didn’t miss the edge in his voice. He took a seat in the leather chair between the two matching sofas and pushed a button on the black box sitting on the table next to him. I stood and began to slip out of my dress.
