This week, I have wrangled you all a little tease from fellow HOT author, Thomas Briar and his MuseItHot release, In the Age of Hysteria.
Here are the juicy details on the tale:
by Thomas Briar
Genre: Erotic Romance (Historical)
Dr. Joseph Brenner, a twenty-two year old graduate of medical college, has a natural gift for treating hysteria, circa 1878. The only problem is none of his peers in Boston, Massachusetts will offer him an assistantship due to a supposed moral indiscretion on his part. Without obtaining an assistantship he cannot enter the medical field to build a reputation as a competent doctor. Or, so he believes.
The beautiful and affluent Ms. Mary Pyre, a twenty-six year old businesswoman, has heard whispers of Joseph's proficiency in treating the disease. She seeks Joseph out and hires him as the attending physician at her Women's Health and Revitalizing Spa. Though Joseph and Mary are attracted to each other, unfortunate circumstances make them keep their romantic feelings for one another at arm's length. It is only when he learns she needs his expertise to overcome her sexual impotence toward men that their relationship has an opportunity to move forward.
Now that I have your curious, here is your Wicked Wednesday snippet for this week:
Joseph counted this as a positive sign. He used his fingers to move the stray hair away from Laura's face. He made sure his fingers gently brushed against her delicate skin. As suspected, he discovered the surface temperature of her face hotter than his fingertips. This declared her body was awakening to sexual arousal; the dilation of her pupils heralded this truth as well. He kept looking directly into her eyes.
"Now Laura, I want you to think of these straps holding you in place as if they were a strong man's embrace," Joseph voiced lowly. He gently caressed the soft contours of Laura's forehead and cheeks. "It can be any man you want it to be. You are safe and sound within his embrace. He's holding you in place because you are precious to him. He would never do the least thing to hurt you, or let anything happen to you. He only wants to discover your body's secrets and make you feel good."
Laura's eyes closed under Joseph's soothing ministrations, then flickered back open to stare at him more intently than before. She murmured softly under her breath.
"That's right, Laura. You like him caressing your face. He's such a strong man. He only wants to make you feel special, and he knows how to do this. He knows the kind of gentle touching you like."
Laura offered a slight nodding of her head. Her breathing became slow and deep. She did not close her eyes again; neither did her gaze wander from Joseph's face.
Joseph realized Laura now stared into his eyes without really seeing him; the duel orbs of jet blackness were glazed over in fantasy. He had her now, wholly and completely, her burgeoning arousal keeping an even pace with his verbal and physical ministrations.
About the Author:Thomas Briar is a pseudonym, this author's secret alter ego if you please, and he encompasses everything this author aspires to be. He's the guy that really wrote Earning The Right And The Name. After discovering pornography at age 25, he was writing erotica by age 27. The years passed by quickly and he quit writing erotica at 35 (right when the market began slowly reviving; imagine his anguish at age 40 when he finally realized this fact while standing in the erotic section of Books A Million). From that fatefully event his first erotic novel in five years was born. He will never turn from writing erotica ever again.
Until next time... Happy Reading!
