No smoking

“Anyone caught breaking the rules will be suitably admonished.”
There was something about the tone of his voice that gave me the creeps.
“It’s like being at school again,” joked Rebecca.
“Or prison,” I added.
“And anyone caught smoking will be severely punished,” he concluded with a rather self-satisfied smirk.

(extract from No Smoking, short story in collection Kissing Velvet)

Okay, so I have never smoked, apart from one brief puff in the back row of a cinema with teenage friends when I was a lot younger.  I choked when I inhaled and never tried again.   But I’ve had friends who have really struggled when they wanted to give it up, and this, combined with a stay at a healthy, veggie retreat in the middle of a remote forest inspired me to write this story as part of my Kissing Velvet collection (with an outrageous sexy twist, of course).  I don’t think Big Brother had hit our screens then, but the opportunities it offers for kinkiness need to be explored…..and who knows, despite it’s rather unorthodox techniques, maybe the clinic in my story would have great success rates helping people give up smoking . They would certainly have fun trying.

The Emerald Room

I'm thrilled to be featuring Scarlett Knight's elegantly titled collection, The Emerald Room.

The Emerald Room by Scarlett Knight
Experience the passion that ignites when handsome older men connect with young beautiful women. This steamy collection of four erotic short stories includes the kind of sexy encounters that only a blending of experience and youth can bring. Read how a composed college professor gives over to his lust for one of his faithful students, witness a seasoned theatre director succumbing to the stubborn wiles of a hot young actress in his play, and more....

The Emerald Room bar was one of the classier joints where Nate got paid to play these days. Every Friday for the past two months, he put on a jacket and bowtie and sat at their shiny baby grand, tickling the keys for his two-hour set. It was a hell of a lot better than some of the trashy spots he was forced to waste his talent in, places whose patrons were so noisy and crude, where his music drowned beneath the sound of shrill laughter and glass breaking.
But not this place.

Aside from the nice paycheck, and aside from the sleek marble-topped bar and tall cherry wood seats, and aside from the polite, well-dressed folks who not only listened to him but tipped as well, there was the goddess.

She always showed up when he was about thirty minutes into his set, usually around the time he was playing soundtrack tunes from movies like The Godfather. In she'd stride, wearing one of her killer dresses. Sometimes it was the little black one, her hair cascading like a golden wave down her bare back. Other times she wore the sparkling red number. Tonight she donned a silver gown with a slit all the way up to the top of her right leg, the lacy band of her stocking peeking out whenever she moved just right on the barstool.

God, did Nate have a thing for stockings.

Her black stilettos only made her heavenly legs even more mouthwatering, the way they caused the calf muscles to flex just right. In between songs he took a sip of his bourbon and loosened his tie. To imagine those legs wrapped around him…it was the fuel for many a fantasy after he went home, too chicken shit to talk to her.

Friend or foe?

"I always say yes.  I sometimes think that’s what gets me into trouble."

I think most women have worried about running out of petrol on a motorway, especially at night, making one feel very vulnerable – and not in a sexy way, either.  A lot of creative writing is about the “what ifs.”  We take a situation, real or hypothetical, and then ask the question: What if this happened next?  As writers, we use our imaginations and combine that with our own experiences to produce what we hope is good fiction. 

In this story in my collection, Kissing Velvet, I take that premise as the starting point after I ended up on the hard shoulder of the M20 on a dark and spooky night in my rather old Citroen XM.    

The male character in the tale is both powerful and strong with a gentle core, a combination I personally find irresistible.  These contrasts can be very sexy, especially if you are naturally submissive in the bedroom.  My female character, Laura, is suspicious that her mysterious new lover is hiding a secret.  And what woman hasn’t got the better of her curiosity and had a rummage through her man’s drawers when left alone in his apartment?  Just call me Pandora…..
