In 1944, women were considered the weaker sex. Divorce was unheard of—a woman’s place was in the home, obeying her spouse and raising their children. After her miscarriage, Calvin Barnes blamed his wife Sarah for being too weak to carry out her duties. His violent, drunken rampages turned deadly.
A chance encounter with a mysterious stranger empowers Sarah to find freedom, sexual enlightenment, and love. Wealthy businessman, Jon Bartleaux, teaches Sarah there is more to life than the 1940s mindset of sex only being for procreation at the pleasure of the husband. Treated as an equal, he teaches her that tender, generous, mutually satisfying sex can be enjoyed by both partners.
Sarah puts the pain and guilt of her past behind her until her sister Carol asks for help with a neighbor who is desperate to escape her husband’s abuse, with the added danger of a standing hitman contract should anything happen to him. Will Sarah risk revealing her secret weapon for ending spousal abuse to help Twyla?
Will Jon’s terrible secret unravel it all?
When Clay Myerson finds a woman stranded on the highway, he finds purpose in his life he has never known. His best friends brother is killed and he is asked to take over the investigation to find the person involved. His business finds greater success with the aid of Pam Durbin and her bevy of single friends. Having only a few vague clues to work with Clay uses all his experience in law enforcement in his attempt to solve the mystery of Benny Pratt's death. As he closes in on the suspect, attempts to turn him away become deadly. Can he solve the case or will his adversary find a way to stop him?
“Calvin isn’t breathing,” Sarah cried into the telephone. “I think I may have killed him. I—”
“No. You don’t need to talk to anyone. You never saw this prescription. You never saw me today. You never left your house. By the way, did you see a rather handsome man in the grocery store while you were getting the prescription filled?”
“Sarah, familiarity is exactly where I intend to go with you. As soon as you feel free to see me. If it is a matter of observing propriety after your husband’s death, I have no qualms one way or the other. If it is a matter of location, I bought a house out in the country when I came here to open this store. You can have the house and the property when I leave. If you remain monogamous with me through our time together, I’ll sell it to you for one hundred dollars.”
Excerpt from Sherman
“See anything you like?”
She stood in the doorway with her left hand on her hip and her right hand high up on the door frame. Her blouse was open, hanging down over the cutoff blue jeans. Her supple breasts, hiding just inside the blouse, invited a closer inspection.
“You know what you do to me, Chris.”
Smiling, she came to me, while I turned the chair I sat in away from the drafting table.
Pushing her legs between mine, she placed her hands on my shoulders and brought those lovely breasts within inches of my mouth. “Get things started and then come with me to the bedroom.”
Pushing the material away with my face to expose her left breast I kissed it on the inner side and moving my mouth inward, with sucking kisses to find her luscious nipple. Pulling hungrily on her flesh with my mouth, I felt her nipple harden and push against my tongue. My hands moved to her gorgeous ass and massaged it, working up and down her legs in slow rhythmic motions while groping her firm ass. She brought her hands up to caress the back of my head, “That feels so good. You excite me like no man ever has. So powerfully sensual and animalistic. Not sloppy romantic like some think sex should be done. Excite me. Get me ready for whatever comes and let it come. Get me hungry for you and let me be part of the act. Not just some fixture for some man’s pleasure, to be used and turned away from. Sex me up and down and I will do the same to you. Each of our sexual encounters makes it better the next time and even better the next. The next time after that may not be better, but it will be tantalizingly different.”
She pulled away and bent to kiss me, rubbing my growing manhood with her hand outside my pants leg. “He seems to be willing. Come with me to the bedroom. I have a need for you Trent.”
