For one night, Colorado rancher Roman Grainger is an honored guest at The Aerie, Xavier Greer's private BDSM club. Roman's not sure the whips-and-chains stuff is for him, though, and he's about to leave when he sees Juliet Howard, half-naked, kneeling at his feet.
Juliet Howard, a regular sub at The Aerie, figures she's won the sub lottery when she looks up at a real cowboy, complete with the boots and a Stetson in one hand. But when they get to The Medieval Room, she realizes that Roman's not exactly an experienced Dom. Still, he's the sexiest man she's seen for a long time. And since the regular Aerie Doms are either paired up with their own subs or nervous about playing with Juliet because she's "the delicate one," she's not letting Roman go just yet.
Can one night together be the start of something wonderful, or will it just be a fantasy played out for them both?
Christina Thacher wrote this short story so you can try out her writing for free. Roman and Juliet features other characters from The Aerie Doms universe, but it's a stand-alone story with its own satisfying ending.
Warning: This erotic romance has lots of sex, including some light bondage (approximate length: 11,000 words). The bonus material has more sex, including dominance and submission, impact play, and a really kinky scene in The Aerie owner’s office!
Bonus material: this book also includes the first chapters of The Locked Heart, The Frozen Heart, and The Secret Heart (books 1 to 3 of The Aerie Doms series).
About the Author
Christina Thacher doesn't use her real name for her erotica, if only to keep her boss from teasing her about her "smut." She's an urban professional writing about urban professionals having kinky sex. Her inspiration is obvious, she says: she just imagines what she would like to have happen to her and the next thing she knows, the book's done. Of course, between her day job as a bankruptcy lawyer and her secret life as a BDSM erotica author, Christina barely has time to date. Just as well...none of the men she meets are as sexy as her heroes. As long as that proves true, she'll keep writing books.
