It was a moment of exquisite torture. Cynthia's nerves tingled madly under his piercing blue-eyed gaze. "Understood?" he asked, his voice as commanding and arousing as his look had been.

"Yes," she managed, turning away, breaking the spell he had cast over her.

Strange character

The story needed to be developed a little better and I wasn't a fan of the violent tendencies of Jonathan.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
