Ainsley Simmons chewed on the end of her pencil, her fingers hovering over her laptop, wondering if she had the nerve. Staring at the screen, she tapped her foot nervously on the polished limestone floor. The rapid beat echoed through her sprawling penthouse. Pausing to pick up a business card, she flipped it over like a playing card, thumbing the linen card stock between her fingers.

All too aware that today was Valentine’s Day, the last thing Ainsley wanted to do was spend the evening alone. Not when her friends were being whisked off by their lovers and significant others to exotic locales, all while she sat in her vast Beverly Hills penthouse. Alone. At least Charles hadn’t taken her home from her when he’d cleaned her out and scampered off to Dubai with his newest flame.

Her gaze lingered on the business card and the elegant, embossed print.

Fantasies Inc.

No fantasy will go unfulfilled.

That was all it said. Nothing else.

Her closest friend, Tara, had discreetly handed Ainsley the card at her annual posh cocktail party last weekend. The who’s who of Hollywood had been in attendance that night, not that Ainsley had noticed—she’d been too busy drowning her sorrows in her martini glass. Glasses plural was more like it. No wonder she’d had a wicked hangover the next day. The card didn’t specify the kind of fantasies they specialised in, but Tara had told her. Sexual.

Maybe Tara was right—Fantasies Inc. might just be the perfect diversion from her troubles, if just for one night. Drumming her manicured nail on her desk and scanning the elaborate website, Ainsley was more than intrigued by the promise of a fun-filled rendezvous in the privacy of her own home, with no questions asked.

The company assured anonymity, and even provided a short online questionnaire to assist in the creation of the client’s perfect evening of pleasure.

The list of questions alone thrilled her. Preferred age, race, hair and eye color, build, sexual preferences, not to mention an impressive list of sexual specialties. Next to each choice there was a ‘surprise me’ option. Ainsley frowned. Not one for surprises, she knew just the type of lover that made her heart beat faster. The type of man she’d never had before. Mid-twenties, fair and muscular. Oh, and yes, one who wasn’t afraid to take control, to make her weak at the knees—at his command.

A flicker of desire wicked through her, right to her core. Deep down in her belly was an insistent need ached to be satisfied, tempted by blissful hours in the arms of her perfect fantasy lover.

Taking a long, slow swig of her champagne, the bubbles catching in her throat, she gathered her courage. Courage to do something rash, almost reckless—that was so unlike her, but then after Charles had left her, she’d been forced to be the new Ainsley. And the night of discreet pleasure might very well be her last five thousand dollars, but hours spent allowing herself—no, more like treating herself—to an evening all about her… Well, that was just what she craved. She’d think of it as a Valentine’s present to herself.

Quickly ticking off a few preferences, she noted the Valentine’s special, an upgrade to a second night of pleasure for a few thousand more. Two nights of mysterious erotic pleasures was just too much for both her body and her bank account to imagine. She’d best stick with one night and see how it went. Gulping down the rest of her champagne, she pressed the send button.

She exhaled as her credit card was approved for the deposit. The rest would be put on her tab and could be settled at the end of the fantasy. Plus gratuity. Oh, how does one tip for that? Her cheeks flushed and her pulse raced with the thought of what she’d just done.

* * * *

An hour later, Ainsley stopped nervously pacing her bedroom and paused to study her image in the floor to ceiling mirror. What did one wear for such an event? A man assigned to come to her home to fulfill her fantasies for the entire evening? She eyed her reflection critically, sucking in her tummy bulge that no amount of Pilates or sit-ups seemed to cure. Still, not too bad for forty-five, she conceded. At least the lights would be dimmed. She’d make sure of that.

Slipping on the La Perla lace demi bra, she nestled her breasts in the cups, then reached for the skimpy matching panties with barely a swathe of fabric to cover her derrière. The sheer fabric grazing against her bare flesh made her feel sexy when she slipped on the garter she’d unearthed from her lingerie drawer.

Platinum Pleasures is a short story about a case of mistaken identity. But with a more delicious twist. Ainsley found herself feeling lonely after having just gotten out of a long relationship and being hurt by her previous lover by being left for a younger woman. A friend of hers had given her the information of an escort service with the primary focus of fulfilling all your sexual fantasies. She was hesitant to call but decided to give in and let herself have one night of pleasure. Marcus is the owner of an upscale travel agency and on his way home when his assistant asked if he could drop off a package that needed to be delivered that day. Being it was Valentine day and all he wanted to do was get home so he could be alone he reluctantly agreed to make the delivery. What he didn’t expect was to find a sexy woman dressed in next to nothing greet him at the door. Ainsley was nervous and didn’t know what was expected of her but both of them got more than what either could ever imagine. The author did a great job of telling their story and the sex between them is off the charts hot. Each having their own hurtful pasts to deal with were able to find some joy in each other. The story was fun….sexy….and very enjoyable. It was well written and the characters were easy to connect with. For me it’s always refreshing to read about an older woman finding love and lust with a younger man. This little story had all that and more. Highly recommend!

This is a cute story. Ainsley feels her life has been ruined. She could fall back on her family connections, but she is too proud to do that. She will find a way out. She would like to have her most secret fantasy. She ordered a mail order lover and of course, things became confusing. She is our of work, he is a CEO. She is the older than him and has never dated a younger man. Can fantasy become reality? When does it stop being a dream and start being true?

Those looking for a quick read to bring a smile to their face and a blush to their cheeks will get just that with Platinum Pleasures. As a woman in her forties I was drawn to the older woman/younger man theme and the emotional doubts both of them experienced. By the time the final page was turned I was completely won over by the perfect balance of witty banter and steamy yet playful sexual interludes nicely spaced throughout the story wishing I hadn't reached the end. After being cruelly dumped, with her money and pride taken by her ex, Ainsley didn't want to spend Valentine's Day wallowing in pity. Her treat to herself is a steamy night where the man of her dreams fulfills all her sexual fantasies. The man who shows up appears confused at first but quickly gives her a night to remember, a night where she sees her body as perfect. For one night she's free to be the woman she's always wanted to be, one who's confident and commanding. In the harsh light of day though, when it's discovered that her dream man isn't who she thought he was, her doubts come crashing back in and have her shoving him out the door. He's not the kind of man to give up easily and is soon back waging an emotional war to win her heart. I liked Ainsley immensely and could easily relate to her self-doubts. She was a strong-willed woman who was blindsided by her ex but quickly picked herself up and jumped wholeheartedly back into life in a very memorable way. I enjoyed her ability to give as good as she got which made the verbal banter between her and mystery man Marcus more entertaining. Marcus is going through his own emotional turmoil as his wife died on Valentine's Day which has him dreading the evening ahead. He's closed himself off to emotional ties as the feelings she engendered in him are difficult to equal. He doesn't want to be left alone again. When he's set-up on an errand by his very caring secretary to deliver a package, he's pleasantly surprised by how things turn out. He's become bored with the women he's been meeting until he greets Ainsley in her very sexy pjs. He senses something different about her, she's someone who's real and who wants him only for himself. He's intrigued by her dichotomy of sexy siren and shy vixen and though she kicks him out the next day, he wants nothing more than to stay. He's not a man who loses and will do whatever it takes to convince her that age, and any of her other self-doubts, means nothing to him and that the connection they have is undeniable. Marcus is immensely charming and sexy, he's playful yet intense in bed and Ainsley is a great match. He's a man who's confident too and knows exactly what he wants which makes him go after Ainsley with intensity. He knows that life is too short to give up on happiness when you find it and will do whatever necessary to get her to see that too. This was an immensely satisfying story with witty banter, intense verbal foreplay, and sweet yet sensual and erotic interludes. Though we don't get a lot of background on these two people I still felt a connection to them as they're likable and their emotional pain a great connecter. The flow of the story kept me fully immersed from start to finish, captivated by its sensual haze, and once again shows off Ms. Deveaux's talent for crafting great reads in small packages!

After a nasty break up, forty-five year old Ainsley Simmons didn't want to spend Valentine's Day alone. Gathering up her courage to do something rash, reckless, and totally unlike her, she orders from Fantasies Inc. an online sexual fantasy Valentine's present to herself: an anonymous fantasy lover to provide her with a pleasure filled evening in the privacy of her own home. Marcus Roarke is a twenty-eight year old multi-millionaire and CEO of Platinum Enterprises, an exclusive luxury travel agency. Valentine's Day would have been his fifth wedding anniversary to wife Gaby, if she hadn't been suddenly taken from him in a tragic car accident two years ago. Trying to escape the hype of the holiday for the quietness of his Beverly Hills penthouse, Marcus tries to leave the office when his secretary asks him to deliver a surprise exclusive destination tour package to a client on his way home. A case of mistaken identity and a erotically passionate night between Ainsley and Marcus leads to something more than either could ever imagine .... Platinum Pleasures is a deliciously naughty erotic romance novella that is a perfect pre-Valentine's Day story to read. Author Kate Deveaux weaves an entertaining and sexy tale that engages the reader to follow Ainsley and Marcus' steamy encounter that unexpectedly develops into something more. This is a quick little novella that has enough steamy erotic sex scenes and playful dialogue that will thoroughly appease your guilty pleasure, while also providing a nice back story into Ainsley and Marcus' pasts that intertwines the eroticism of their passionate fantasy evening with the promise of a sweet romantic ending. I really enjoyed reading a erotic romance story that features a May-December romance between a mature woman and a younger man. I thoroughly enjoyed following their journey of fulfilling their sexual needs and finding love. Who knew that a case of mistaken identity could lead to something more?! Platinum Pleasures is an entertaining and sensual novella that will leave a satisfied smile on your face.

Hawt! Favorite Quote: “He peeled out from the club, navigating his silver Aston Martin Vanquish through the never-ending rush hour.  Skyfall Silver – that was what the manufacture had called it, as if he were James Bond or something.”   My Review: A naughty and entertaining little diversion to occupy a saucy afternoon.  Obviously pure fantasy as the man is filthy rich as well as kind, sexy, and ripped.  Sigh, those men only exist in my kindle.
