Excerpt From Light Play
By Jaap Boekestein
You check your skirt and blouse for the last time. He demands your appearance be immaculate.
With a dry throat, you knock on the door of The Room. You are on edge. It is late in the day, some time after noon. Outside, the cruel sun burns. In the house, everything is dark. Heavy curtains keep out Death. You have slept until late in the guest room, woken by the nag-ging alarm clock. Such an unholy hour!
It takes ten seconds. You cannot hear him. The door is soundproof, like the rest of The Room.
Psshh. The door opens. He stands in the opening.
Playboy millionaire; gray, wise Daddy; evil, arrogant Master. All clichés, none of them applicable. At first glance, he looks completely ordinary, a bit ugly even, but my god, he has presence. He radiates power without trying at all. He is a natural Dom. He is your Dom.
Why isn’t he one of the People—a vampire? He would have ruled them all. But he is only mortal.
Still he rules you. You are a degenerate.
Sssh! Nobody knows!
Well, you yourself know. And so does he. It is your dirty secret. Shame! Shame!
You don’t feel shame. Not when he looks at you, when he inspects you from top to toe. Anxiety, pride, submission. All that and more. Not shame. Never.
Finally, he nods.
A hot wave of relief. You have passed his test. You are worthy.
Relief is followed by nervousness for what is waiting in The Room. You know what is in there. This isn’t your first time. But every time, you are nervous. Afraid even.
Without words, he turns around and you follow.
Psshh. The door closes behind you.
Want to know what happens next?
Dark. Brooding. Tortured. Sexy.
Vampires are a mystery, morphing through history from maligned villains to sparkling saviors and back again. They can be the ultimate bad boys, the supreme seductresses, or the evil monsters. They fascinate and repel us at the same time. What other creature can steal into your bedroom in the depths of the night to stalk or protect? What other ancient being is so accessible yet so powerful? What other enigma is desired as much as feared?
Cross the threshold into a world of insatiable heroes and voracious heroines. RAVENOUS explores saucy, sexy, and sweet tales: of forbidden vampire/vampire hunter love, vampire threesomes in space, kink as only a vampire could enjoy it… and so much more.
