Two unforeseen moments in time— One brings them together, the other is a danger so real it could tear them apart.
Antoinette ‘Toni’ Grimaldi prefers to keep out of the spotlight, blend in with the crowd and experience life the same as the bulk of the population. Being a mining magnate’s daughter is a difficult persona for her to uphold. She just doesn’t fit in with high society standards, always managing to say something inappropriate or trip over her own feet at the worst possible moment, resulting in that look of disappointment and embarrassment her parents inevitably wear whenever she’s around.
Meeting a handsome stranger who comes to her rescue and asks her out on a date is so much more than Toni could have ever hoped for on her dream holiday—one she is surprised her parents have even permitted her to take alone. Her fairy-tale moment is short-lived, though, when Toni discovers the stranger has been hired by her family to follow her every move—under the guise of keeping her safe.
Jason finds he is drawn to Antoinette. She is nothing at all like the socialite he was expecting to shadow around London’s nightclubs. After an awkward first meeting, he convinces Toni that there is more to his interest in her than just as her bodyguard. To his surprise, his attraction for the soft-spoken, thoughtful woman grows, despite his usual reluctance to commit to any kind of relationship.
Then a disaster at one of the family-owned mines and a string of death threats force Toni to return home, and her need for a bodyguard becomes a life and death reality.
She was going to kill him. Her words, so simple and direct, had Jason’s head spinning. Kissing Toni was like nothing he had ever experienced, and Jason had kissed many women. There was a definite zing, like an electric charge, as their lips met.
Taking her to his bed was the best idea ever spoken. “I’m trying not to rush this, luv, but if you insist, I’d hate to disappoint you, honey.”
Jason was surprised by the gravelly tones of his voice. He was so used to being in complete control, yet Toni had him struggling to keep it together. Jason found himself dealing with a very uncharacteristic problem—he was nervous. He wasn’t sure how long he would last before his dick or balls—or both—exploded. He needed to be inside her ASAP but first he wanted to hear Toni call out his name in ecstasy as he brought her undone.
“That robe is not hiding much but I think it needs to go,” he said as he gently slid it from her body. “You’re so beautiful, all curves and womanly softness. I can’t wait to feel your skin against mine, honey.” He couldn’t resist the temptation of her full lush tits any longer and fell to his knees. One pink nipple now directly in line with his mouth, he licked the offering. The sound of her sighs spurred him on. Jason laved, nipped and sucked on the nub then repeated the same with the other breast. Fuck, he wanted to rub his cock between those two mounds of soft flesh and pump away until his cum covered them—just not yet. He needed to be buried inside her pussy this first time. But he would make the fantasy a reality some time soon, he promised himself, as he concentrated on bringing Toni pleasure.
“I’m going to touch you now. My fingers are going to play with your pussy, tease your clit and make sure you are ready for me—hot and wet for my cock to slide into you.
“I’m ready for you now…” Her breathy reply.
“Oh, honey, that’s good to hear because I’m ready for you. That’s a fact.”
Toni hadn’t been kidding, Jason discovered. She was hot and slick, and he groaned at the pleasure of sliding his fingers between her soft cunt lips. “Oh, baby, you are so ready for me that you’re killing me. You feel so fucking good. So wet, so hot…” He needed to taste that cream.
Cocktails and Books
Today was supposed to have been a productive day at our house. I had big plans to clean bathrooms and straighten up. I was doing pretty well with my plan until I decided to take a break and start An Opportunity Seized. I almost immediately developed a little crush on Toni and Jason and couldn’t stop spending time with them and their adventures.
Toni is a shy, quiet, clumsy elementary teacher, much to the chagrin of her wealthy parents, who despair of her ever fitting in with their rich friends and lifestyle. Toni knows she doesn’t fit in. She doesn’t have the temperament for the country club set, and just wants to lead a quiet life.
She is touring London this summer, all by herself, which is just what she wanted—to be out from under her parents’ matchmaking, and interference in her life. What she doesn’t know is Jason has been hired to shadow her on her travels and keep her safe. There are people who would kidnap her or do her harm in order to cause her rich father trouble in his business interests, and to perhaps extort money from him for Toni’s safe return.
Jason is supposed to keep his surveillance a secret from Toni, but his interest in her grows every day he watches her, so when a hilarious opportunity presents itself for the two to meet, he seizes it. From then on, they tour together, finding much that they have in common.
When they return home, sinister forces are at work, targeting Toni and her family, so Jason has to take on Toni’s safety issues once again.
The story is fast-paced, interesting, and I loved it. The sex is volcanic, the heroine’s journey is epic, and I think you’ll like An Opportunity Seized too.
