“I don’t want to lose either…” #MWTease #MFRWAuthor
Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!
Christmas is coming! Book 4 in our Meghan’s Playhouse series is releasing as a Stocking Stuffer at Extasy Books on December 6 – here’s a taste to whet your appetite:
“But you have to tell him. Right?”
Looking back at Meg, Lisa nodded slowly. “He’ll wonder why I waited so long.”
“That can’t be helped. Now is now. How are you going to take what apparently will be a leap of faith?”
“I don’t know. I thought maybe you could help—that you might think of something I haven’t yet. I’ve thought of simply blurting it out in the middle of lovemaking. Maybe he’d like another woman to join us. I’ve thought of writing a letter, but that seems too clinical and detached. I keep wringing my hands over this, but I can’t get the words out.”
“I take it you’re not ready to give up women.”
Lisa wet her lips. “I’ve thought about it. I can’t do it. I’m bi. I like women as well as men. That’s the way it is. I’m sure there are plenty of bi women who set aside their desire for the touch of a woman to be with a man. I don’t think I can do it. That wouldn’t be me. If I tried and failed, that would be worse than what I’m facing now.”
“And you don’t think Bryce has ever suspected? He’s seen us together…well, I don’t mean really together…but we are fairly touchy-feely, even around him.”
“That’s how he sees me, touchy-feely.” She let out a deep sigh. “I’ve given this a lot of thought. I wouldn’t need another man in my life if I had Bryce, but that’s still not the same. I don’t want to be unfaithful to my wedding vows…but I can’t see a life without being intimate with a woman, at least now and then. Like us. Dammit. What we just shared in my bedroom is extremely special to me, and it’s more than raw sex.”
“And to me,” Meg interjected. “But I wouldn’t want to cause problems in your marriage. By the way, wedding vows can be written to reflect whatever you and whoever you marry agree to commit to. There’s nothing magical in those words. Magic, as you and I know very well from the theater world, lies in the heart.”
“I know. I know. Maybe that’s the crux of the matter. My heart knows the magic of two women being together as well as the magic of a woman and a man. I don’t want to lose either.”
A ring for Christmas? Sometimes what you hope for and what you fear are one and the same.
In Las Vegas for a brief stint in a musical revue and ready for some uncomplicated sex with a kindred spirit, Meghan Keenan is only too happy to resume connections with her sometimes lover, Lisa Perkins.
But Lisa’s in a quandary. Her most recent boyfriend has suddenly become serious, with hints of a diamond ring in her future—and she’s never told him she’s bisexual. What if he freaks? What if he makes her choose?
Professional photographer Bryce Henry spends his days up close and personal with beautiful models and actresses. Now he’s deeply in love with Lisa and ready to pop the question, but even he wonders about long term fidelity. What does he want, and how bad does he want it?
What will happen when Meg takes hold of Lisa’s problem and runs with it?
