The Adonis by Charity Parkerson

The-AdonisSizedGrecian Fantasies hosts one of the hottest balls in town, a naughty Nobody-Knows-Your-Name masquerade that is not only exclusive, but is also not for the faint of heart. Pleasure, fantasy, fetish, and vice are all on the menu at this ball. The only thing not up for grabs is the notorious woman behind its creation, but that is about to change.

“Weston, go play with Mike,” he ordered, and Weston was gone before he could finish speaking, leaving them alone.

“I’m only here to work security,” Rob said, capturing her attention with his slightly disapproving tone, and ruffling her feathers a bit. She did not remember him being this judgmental back when he held her ex-husband’s secrets.

“See how happy Weston is now that he has his lumberjack,” Thea said, nodding in Weston’s direction.

Rob glanced over at Weston before quickly looking away. She wanted to laugh. He was also a bit more prudish than she remembered. “I see everyone knows about Mike’s hands,” Rob said dryly, before asking, “Do you equate happiness with sexual pleasure?”

Instead of answering his question, Thea decided to turn it around on him. “Do you equate unhappiness with the lack of sexual pleasure?”

“Absolutely,” he answered immediately, surprising a bark of laughter from her.

“Would you like to be really happy, right now?” she offered, knowing he would not indulge.

“I’m not really the sex-in-public-places kind of guy, and I’m on the clock,” he reminded her.

“That’s too bad,” Thea sighed as she slid from her stool. “I’m the kind of crazy that you would never forget,” she added before slipping away into the crowd with her heart racing wildly in her chest, and with the heat of his gaze burning into her back as she made her escape.
