Basking in the afterglow of Lucent's intense affection leaves Elise's mind reeling. Is this the beginning of something more, or once the snow stops is he lost to her forever?
(A Cerys du Lys contemporary BDSM erotic romance novella)
Elise is living a fantasy. This entire weekend has been surreal.
Unfortunately dreams and fantasies inevitably end. With the winter blizzard nearing completion, she knows the real world holds a bitter reawakening for her soon enough.
Lucent Storme remains an enigma despite everything they've experienced. Elise is fascinated by him, allured by his tender care clashing against his decadent authority. He likes her, too - he must - except he hides behind his dominance, using it as an emotional mask. Is he afraid he'll hurt or upset her, or is there more to his aloof capriciousness?
It hurts, but Elise knows Lucent will leave once they escape from the library. Her only hope is that she can convince him to return. After succumbing to his absolute temptation, she's determined to beguile him into succumbing to her, too.
